Weekly Wants - The Four Picks Fix
ROLLING STONES
ON AIR
$12.99(sale priced)
On Air is a collection of rarely heard radio recordings from the Stones formative years. The songs including eight tracks the band have never recorded or released commercially, were originally broadcast on bygone UK shows such as Saturday Club, and Rhythm and Blues between 1963 and 1965. The tapes have gone through a process called audio source separation, making tracks like Come On, (I Cant Get No) Satisfaction, and many more sound better than before. Standard CD features 18 classic tracks!
CHRIS STAPLETON
FROM A ROOM: VOLUME 2
$9.99(sale priced)
The 39-year-old Kentucky native relies on Dave Cobb, Nashville's leading studio naturalist, to capture the leathery twang and blues-basted analog brawn of his power trio, in which it falls upon Stapleton to supply both sinewy rhythm guitar and snarling lead licks. Adult fans have received his sound as a rebuke of glossy, beat-driven country-pop trends. There's no clutter to it, nothing to hide behind, nothing competing with the furnace-blast force of Stapleton's belting. When headlining arenas, he'd rather try to close the distance between the band and the crowd with a stage setup that enables people in the nosebleeds to hear with slightly more intimate clarity than scale up his show.Who the music is coming from is no less important. It's Stapleton's performing persona not some imagined antagonism toward the Nashville music industry (in which he first thrived as a hit songwriter) that links him to the '70s Outlaw Movement, recalling the masterful self-mythologizing of lionized figures like Waylon Jennings.
U2
SONGS OF EXPERIENCE
$12.99(sale priced)
U2's latest finds the band coming to terms with a world closer to the brink than at any time during their career. They meet the moment with precisely the right balance of grandeur and grace, harnessing their earnest post-punk past to their remarkable facility for modern pop gestures, abetted by producers Jacknife Lee, Ryan Tedder, Steve Lillywhite, Danger Mouse and others. Fittingly for dark times, images of love and light abound ('There Is a Light,' 'Lights of Home,' 'Ordinary Love,' 'Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way'), and Kendrick Lamar even drops in to flip some Biblical Beatitudes. But alongside piousness is pure fun. See 'The Showman (Little More Better),' which is vintage sock-hop shimmy-shake with a seasoned protagonist cheekily declaring 'I got just enough low self-esteem to get myself where I need to go.' It's a rock & roll creation myth that manifests the music's eternal magic, delivered by a band that refuses to let it fade.
YOUNG NEIL & PROMISE OF THE REAL
VISITOR
$13.99(sale priced)
When Neil Young entered Shangri La Studio with the band Promise Of The Real a few months ago, there were a lot of images and feelings careening around his soul. The country was heading in a direction Young had never seen, even though up until then he thought he'd seen it all. But something different was happening, and it had gotten inside his music. 'I'm a Canadian by the way and I love the USA,' he sings on the first song 'Already Great.' The ethos of The Visitor can be summed up in the refrain of 'Already Great' where Young insists, 'Already great, you're already great. You're the promise land, the helping hand. No wall. No hate. No fascist USA. WHOSE STREET? OUR STREET.' From those words, Neil Young was ready to take a musical journey on his new album The Visitor like he had never taken before. It was one where he'd even surprise himself, always the mark of a creative leap. By the end of the recording sessions, he knew he'd made his most diverse album going all the way back to Harvest in 1972.
