Weekly Wants - The Four Picks Fix
MATISYAHU
UNDERCURRENT
$10.99(sale priced)
Matisyahu may have found a unique niche in the Jewish reggae and hip hop scenes, and with the 2017 release of his sixth studio album Undercurrent, his religious convictions are woven into a stream of consciousness that flows between genres throughout the album. The album was described in a recent press release stating, The vulnerability felt throughout the lyrical narrative comes from acceptance in uncertainty. Step out into the Light sets the tone for the record, as Matisyahu delves into a musical reframing of the Jewish philosophical differences between the constant of faith and the immediacy of trust.
EVANS FAITH & THE NOTORIOUS BIG
KING & I
$14.99(sale priced)
Constructed with rare and unheard verses from Big Poppa, producers such as DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Salaam Remi, Stevie J, and Chucky Thompson helped Faith blend her cunning vocals with the robust voice of the hip-hop legend. The New Jersey native says she was initially inspired by Natalie Coles Unforgettable With Love album over fifteen years ago. Her attorney actually reminded her of the project a few years back, and thats when she really began to take the recording process serious.Im a producer as well as a singer, so I actually put the albums sequence together [myself], but when I finally felt that I had it [right] I really felt like B.I.G. told me several times that Im doing a great job., explains Faith. She says Biggies spirit was right there in the studio with her the entire time. Evans wasnt concerned with trying to score a radio hit or sound like the Migos, but says her only goal was to create timeless music to extend B.I.G.s legacy.
LINKIN PARK
ONE MORE LIGHT
$14.99(sale priced)
Hold onto your tattoos, Linkin Park fans: The L.A.-based metal-rap genre-benders have followed up arguably their heaviest album 2014's 'The Hunting Party' with something so different than that it may give listeners whiplash.On the band's seventh studio album, the 10-song 'One More Light,' one of America's biggest alternative rock bands has turned unapologetically and positively pop.Is that a guttural howl we hear from Linkin Park fans? Well, here's the thing: They're so good that they've created a very good, up-to-the-minute pop album. It might not be what you expect, but does that make it wrong?An airy 'Nobody Can Save Me' resembles something from Owl City. 'Good Goodbye,' featuring Pusha T and Stormzy, is reminiscent of 'NSync's 'Bye Bye Bye,' and 'Sharp Edges' wouldn't sound out of place on a Shawn Mendes album.The title of the first single, 'Heavy,' featuring Kiiara, might give fans of 'Hybrid Theory' hope. But instead of pneumatic drumming and dark shards of screamed vocals, it's not hard at all it's like listening to The Chainsmokers.Linkin Park did warn us that this might be possible. The band's 2002 release 'Reanimation' drifted into electronic sounds and 2012's 'Living Things' had pop-friendly sensibilities.
POKEY LAFARGE
MANIC REVELATIONS
$13.99(sale priced)
He has his licks down alright; a song like Better Man Than Me sounds like a vintage soul classic right from the get go. The bands performances sound so infectious in fact, one gets the sense that Pokey has the poise and personality to give someone like Bruno Mars a good run for his money.Still, Manic Revelationsits exclamatory title asideisnt simply some trendy pop record. While the cool groove of Silent Movie and the catchy, contagious Good Luck Charm might have once qualified for ongoing airplay on Top 40 radio, its far more organic than any of the prefab productions that dominate the airwaves these days. The backing horns and sprightly pacing keep the music sounding effortless and bewitching, a traditional approach thats been part of LaFarge and his namesake bands signature sound. Its a delivery thats trusty and road tested, with the savvy naturally ingrained in a seasoned band of nomadic troubadours. Simply listen to a track like Wellington, a brassy road song that celebrates that wayward attitude, and its all easy to understand why.
