TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND
LIVE FROM THE FOX OAKLAND
$16.99(sale priced)
The Tedeschi Trucks Band pulled into the historic Fox Theater in Oakland on September 9, 2016 for their second of two consecutive shows at the Bay Area venue. On March 17, the band will release a concert film and live album recorded that night as Live From The Fox Oakland on vinyl and as 2-CD/DVD and 2-CD/BluRay via Fantasy Records.Live From The Fox Oakland features 15 blistering live tracks, never-before-seen behind the scenes footage and interviews with both Marc Maron and David Fricke. In addition, Fricke contributed liner notes to the set, calling it an authentic, widescreen group portraitsimply the truth of what happened, in all of its shared glory. The film was produced, edited and directed by Jesse Lauter and Grant James, while Derek Trucks served as music producer and mixed the release at his Swamp Raga Studios in Jacksonville.
DEPECHE MODE
SPIRIT
$12.99(sale priced)
This is not an album to listen to if you are remotely worried about the state of the world right now. Lead single Where's The Revolution? signalled this, but it didn't quite prepare you for just how bleak a picture Depeche Mode were planning to paint. From the off, with the edgy, slow-building opener Backwards with its trademark bass-heavy rhythms and edgy, nagging melody befitting of a classic Depeche Mode set piece it's clear that Spirit is going to be a challenging listen.And so you get lyrics dealing with how mankind is ignoring the warning signs, regressing instead of progressing, destroying the planet via undeniable satellite evidence that some would no doubt decry as fake news, reminds us painfully of how bad race intolerance got with a story about a public lynching, takes a swipe at politicians and public figures with Scum and bemoans the devious tactics of major corporations. It's bold, direct and in most cases perfectly reflective of public opinion, even if call-to-arms lyrics like its time to pull the trigger (Scum) are probably not exactly helpful with a Republican in power.
SPOON
HOT THOUGHTS
$13.99(sale priced)
spite remaining perennial indie rock favorites over the last decade, Spoon have always been about that small-stakes life. They arent going to alter the course of your existencefrontman Britt Daniel would probably smirk at such a claimbut occasionally Daniels hyper-specific details will creep into your mind unexpectedly. Is Dorians a real place? Whats the corner by Sound Exchange in Austin look like anyway? And why dont more people talk about how much Garden State actually sucked? But Spoon also know their lane quite well: punchy, inconspicuously catchy songs, with choruses just vague enough to make them applicable outside of whatever stylized vignette Daniel has yelped out; bonus points if theres a brief jam session that runs intoxicatingly off the rails for just a moment towards the songs end. This dichotomy can make Hot Thoughts a little uneven, unsure if its trying to be arty or poppy while playing around with the drum machines.
CONOR OBERST
SALUTATIONS
$14.99(sale priced)
Last years Ruminations was like no Conor Oberst album before it, and hopefully, none to come. Performed entirely solo, released with little fanfare and bearing a distressing, cabin-fever ambience, it offered the first and final word on a once-unspeakably rough time in his life. Ruminations was Obersts strongest record in years, but no one would want him to make it a second time. Less than six months later, Salutations is an even more curious move. Oberst re-recorded all 10 songs with a full band and a host of guests, added seven new ones and hit shufflea decision that drags Salutations down and bring its predecessor along with it. After a series of lesser-loved guisesinscrutable mystic, folk-rock yeomanOberst has found a more interesting and sustainable point of view. A kind way of putting it would be world-weary raconteur. Perhaps a more accurate way would be kind of an asshole. The prospect of hearing another dude do this for about 70 minutes is a hard sell at a time when Father John Misty, Drake, Mark Kozelek, and Future have released approximately 9 hours of music in the past year that wearily postulates from a position of privilege on their dissatisfaction with sex, drugs, and everyone outside of their immediate circle.
