Procter & Gamble says it's committing to no deforestation in its palm oil supply chain. The Cincinnati-based consumer products company says it's going to improve its practices with all its suppliers, including small local farmers, to ensure protection of forests.

Saturday night at 11pm, this week's edition of The Blues will feature The Goshorns, Ricky Nye, and the Claudettes who will be performing at Arnold's on Sat, 4/19. You'll also hear a power set with blues legends Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Luther Allison. There are also a couple of songs by Shannon Curfman who appeared on Kid Rock's cruise last month and EG Kight who's been to Cincinnati any number of times.
If you enjoy earth-shattering rhythms, dark and soulful melodies and heavy blues-metal with a bit of Seattle grunge tossed in for flavor, then I strongly recommend that you check out Cincinnati's Valley of the Sun and their album Electric Talons of the Thunderhawk, from Fuzzorama Records.
Electric Talons of the Thunderhawk is the first full-length release from the band and follows on the heels of two very successful EPs, 2010 and The Sayings of the Seers. Talons picks up right where Sayings of the Seers left off with epic-length pieces rife with driving riffs and adroit changes in both tone and rhythm that display great talent and attention to composition and dynamics.
