Round here the buzz is that Church is a must see
This is mid-temp and solid set, it isn’t a major career move the way The Outsider was, it isn’t an attempt to capture the mainstream, but a well played collection of fine songs
Do You – Spoon – Here is a song even Spoon agnostics but unequivocally approve of, a sticky, handclapping, nonsense syllabicating masterstroke, which I noticed when I caught em at Governors Ball and am now insane about – A
Yeah I saw “Frozen” and a fun movie no doubt but compare it to even second tier Disney, “The Jungle Book” say, is there anything comparable to “Bare Necessities”? The truth is there is nothing remotely close to the greatness of the Sherman Brothers anywhere .
The week belonged to two women, Angel Olsen and Lydia Loveless but on the charts Eric Church has a baffling success with the terrible The Outsider… even Rolling Stone only gave it four stars so you just know it sucked.
Eric sold nearly 300K copies of his dog album, giving spoken word a bad reputation from sea to shiny sea. The thing is, when he is good he is not good enough and when he is bad he is the absolute pits. Come back “Jack Daniels” all is forgiven.
Well, “Jack Daniels” is great -unfortunately it was a coupla years ago. Here “Cold One” was nearly as good. What else? “Tallega” is a good old fashioned bromance, as good as Blake Shelton for sure. The title track has a nice head of foam if you haven’t just been listening to Drive-By Trucker.
Love Death Immortality – The Glitch Mob – Or Justin Boreta, Ed Ma, and Josh Mayer, three LA DJs with a great tweak and bass sound for the ages. This is the Glitch Mob’s sophomore effort and it is even harder than the first. An unwavering mesh of synth sounds, doctored drums and bass bass bass and bigger then life. Giving the EDM audience what they want – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – B+
Give me Back My Hometown – Eric Church – Somewhere between country and classic rock, catchy chorus-hook though the song is nothing special, it isn’t bad in a feel bad sort of way – B
