The Weekly Wants
Weekly Wants - The Four Picks Fix
MARTIN STEVE / STEEP CANYON RANGERS
LONG-AWAITED ALBUM
$12.99(sale priced)
Rather than a departure, Martin's musical career is an extension of the storytelling impulse that drove his work as a comedian, an actor, a screenwriter, a playwright, an essayist, and a novelist.'The Long-Awaited Album,' Steve Martin's brand new project with the North Carolina Grammy-winning group the Steep Canyon Rangers, is full of stories that mix humor and melancholy, whimsy and realism, rich characters and evocative details. And lots of banjos. That instrument-so dexterously, even acrobatically picked and strummed-proves just as crucial to relating these tales as the lyrics themselves, each chord and riff revealing depths to Martin's narrators and to his musical talent.
VAN MORRISON
ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES (WB)
$10.99(sale priced)
Roll With the Punches includes tunes by Bo Diddley ('I Can Tell,' 'Ride on Josephine'), Lightnin' Hopkins ('Automobile Blues') and Little Walter ('Mean Old World'). Several of Van Morrison's selections are popular post-war standards, like 'Stormy Monday,' which has been recorded by Lou Rawls and the Allman Brothers and lead single 'Bring It on Home to Me,' originally performed by Sam Cooke and later rendered as a duet by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas.The version of 'Bring It on Home to Me' on Roll With the Punches could have been recorded in the 1960s around the same time as the Thomas/Redding rendition. The guitar works up and down the scale in a predictable pattern, as if played by Stax stalwart Steve Cropper, and the drummer taps out a light beat in 6/8 time. Van Morrison stretches syllables in remarkable ways, making the word 'bring' last for several measures, and background singers add controlled doses of gospel power.
MACKLEMORE
GEMINI (WB) (DIG)
$9.99(sale priced)
Macklemore is returning on September 22nd with Gemini, his first album without producer Ryan Lewis since 2005. It's arriving less than two years after This Unruly Mess I've Made, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' follow-up to the platinum smash The Heist. Undaunted, Macklemore is returning solo with music that is more spontaneous and less explicitly political. Macklemore says he's going to 'talk a little bit more shit' on Gemini, an album where he reminisces about his touring days on a song with Kesha, talks about watching Toy Story 3 in his car on 'Marmalade' with Lil Yachty and engages in a furious boastfest with Offset of Migos
SLEEPING WITH SIRENS
GOSSIP
$9.99(sale priced)
On Gossip, Sleeping with Sirens have reached the artistic heights they began moving towards since their debut nearly 10 years ago. We finally captured the live experience with Bendeth, explains frontman Kellin Quinn. We have the production, but theres a rawness that comes through. Musically, I feel like its the first Sirens record that sounds specifically like us. We took chances, experimented, and continued to do what we do best: create art. Its something new. It has an authentic sound that weve been working towards all this time.An exquisitely polished sounding album, you can appreciate the qualities that Bendeth was able to bring out of the guys during the recording process, One Man Army being a fine example. Whilst still a young band, these guys have racked up some impressive numbers across the board. Sleeping with Sirens Kellin Quinn (vocals, keyboards), Jack Fowler (lead guitar), Nick Martin (rhythm guitar), Justin Hills (bass), and Gabe Barham (drums) have emerged as one of the most influential artists in the Alternative Rock genre, selling an impressive 1.5 million albums worldwide
