Weekly Wants - The Four Picks Fix
LEGEND OF THE SEAGULLMEN /TOOL /MASTODON
LEGEND OF THE SEAGULLMEN /TOOL & MASTODON
$10.99(sale priced)
Within the metal community, both Tool and Mastodon have more than made their mark, with projects and collaborations pouring out of every which way. But when you throw legendary Tool drummer Danny Carey and the shredding beast that is Mastodons Brent Hinds in a blender, along with film director and apparent guitarist Jimmy Hayward, the severely underrated but nevertheless emerging bassist Pete Griffin, vocalist David The Doctor Dreyer, Chris DiGiovanni on synth, and a third guitarist in Tim Dawson. And as the season commands, theres probably a partridge in a pear tree in there somewhere you (eventually) get Legend Of The Seagullmen. We Are The Seagullmen is the bands literal introduction to their audience, making it very clear early on that this will be an album filled with guitar solos and marine-based storytelling. The Fogger takes a slightly darker turn, getting into more doom-like territory, with a decent drum solo from Carey. Then comes the single, Ships Wreck, which is definitely the track where the synth is most prevalent. However, like the entire album, it is still very much guitar-driven.
BIG SMO
SPECIAL RESERVE
$11.99(sale priced)
Born John Smith on February 14, 1976 in San Diego, California, country rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, and film director Big Smo grew up in Tennessee, and he's been known by a lot of names thanks to his various business, music, and film enterprises, including Hick Ross, Andrew 'Mitchell Dick' Keller, and Boss of the Sticks. As a musician, he combines country themes and attitudes with rap and hip-hop in a style that prompted one reviewer to note 'If Kid Rock and Run-D.M.C. had a love child, he would be named Big Smo, although combining Hank Williams, Jr. with Nappy Roots might strike a bit closer. Smith was in the marching band in high school, and had already learned to play several instruments, including the drums and trumpet, when he graduated. He also wrote poetry, and when he met Ray Riddle, who was just starting out as a DJ (he eventually evolved into Orig the DJ), the two set out to combine Smith's poetry with samples on Riddle's Technics turntable. A lasting creative partnership was born, and the pair went on to learn the music business from the ground up, releasing several independent singles, albums, and films. A homemade video of one of Smith's 'hick-hop' songs, 'Kickin' It in Tennessee,'
VANCE JOY
NATION OF TWO
$11.99(sale priced)
The Aussie heartthrob is gearing up for the release of his sophomore album, Nation of Two. Nation of Two ended up becoming something of a concept album about the different aspects of the life of a couple.I didnt have a definite idea before I wrote these songs, said Joy. It was kind of like just waiting for the songs to arrive. I just wanted to write songs that I really felt passionate about and felt proud of. And when I did have 13 songs that I thought were really good, I looked at them and I guess there was a lot of stuff that referred to relationships, even if it was lovers or friends or family, so there was this idea of two people throughout it.Then I was looking at my phone and I had this thing written down that said nation of two in my notes. Its a Kurt Vonnegut quote. He talks about two people who live in a universe thats just the two of them and where they make sense of the world via each other. I really liked that, even just the words. It sounded nice. Luckily it connected with what I was getting at in my songs. So it fell together quite easily. It wasnt necessarily my first intention but it did turn out that way.
MIGOS
CULTURE 2
$14.99(sale priced)
How big is the third Migos album, the follow-up to their Grammy-winning Culture of 2017? Culture II is so loaded with star power, the Atlanta trio are just using one Kanye West-produced track on it, when several were recorded. Migos dont need his endorsement. Bigger than Oprah! quips Takeoff, on Higher We Go, the albums intro. This hip-hop event album of the year is so long 24 tracks, no skits it is effectively a double. It is a victory lap around the genre for an outfit whose distinctive styling a hurricane in a Versace factory, plus all of the diamonds and distinctive, muttery Migos flow has been extensively copied since the two cousins and a nephew first established themselves in 2013 with their breakout mixtape, YRN.Culture II has ample room for more than half a dozen further A-list rappers, among them Cardi B, who is engaged to Migoss Offset. The list of producers fills a side of A4, as Instagrammed by Quavo.
