OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW
50 YEARS OF BLONDE ON BLONDE (DIG)
$10.99(sale priced)
As Secor explains on a recent morning, Dylan's music, and specifically the singer-songwriter's ability to interpret and build upon these seminal folk and blues-music artists, led a then-teenage Secor to develop a deep-seeded love of American roots music. 'He keeps the footprints. He didn't scuff them over,' he says. Now Secor is returning the favor. Last May, in celebration of 50 years since the release of Dylan's iconic 1966 double LP Blonde on Blonde, Old Crow covered the entirety of the album for a performance at the CMA Theater, located inside the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. And now, on April 28th, theyre releasing 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde, a live recording of that night's epic performance.
SHORTY TROMBONE
PARKING LOT SYMPHONY
$12.99(sale priced)
If that title paints a particularly striking picture for you, thats likely its intention. Theres a sense that despite the immense musical ability on display from Shorty and his band Orleans Avenue, the music on this record is still ultimately born from the streets and the community they come from. According to a press release, fans can expect multitudes of soundfrom brass band blare and deep-groove funk to bluesy beauty and hip-hop/pop swaggerand plenty of emotion, emphasizing the kind of simultaneous honor and disregard for genre that Shorty has displayed throughout his career. While the album, produced by Chris Seefried, promises a fresh batch of new tunes from Trombone Shorty, it also sees him tackling tunes by some of his inspirations, with covers of the late Allen Toussaints Here Come the Girls and legendary funk outfit The Meters It Aint No Use.
ROBERT CRAY & HI RHYTHM
ROBERT CRAY & HI RHYTHM - INDIE CD W/ Guitar Pick
$12.99(sale priced)
Royal Studios may lag behind Sun and Stax in most music histories about great Memphis recording locations, but with a stellar output that included such Hi label greats like Otis Clay, Syl Johnson, Ann Peebles and of course Al Green, it remains one of the worlds most famous. So when blues/soulman Robert Cray and producer Steve Jordan went looking for a location to record the formers next album, the still active Royal was a logical destination. The cherry on top is the participation of three ageing but still active members of the famous Hi Rhythm Section including the great Rev. Charles Hodges on keyboards and his brother/bassist Leroy Flick Hodges to slather on some extra Memphis mojo. Open the sleeve of Crays first studio set in three years and theres a picture of him with his Hi backing musicians standing in front of a wall spray painted in huge letters with I Love (heart) Soul, which is all you need to know about these eleven tracks. Any fan of Crays music realizes he has always been more of a rootsy R&B singer/songwriter influenced by the great O.V. Wright than a straight ahead blues guy, making this no major departure. Even as far back as 1990s Midnight Stroll he was working with the Memphis Horns, so this pilgrimage to Royal Studios to record in the home of the music that has inspired him is something of a logical stop on his thirty-plus year career arc.
GORILLAZ
HUMANZ
$13.99(sale priced)
Its America that made Gorillaz, Damon Albarn said recently. The animated bands four albums have so far sold 16m copies worldwide more than Blur and thats largely thanks to Americas warm embrace. Perhaps by way of thanks, this long-awaited fifth album is about America going to hell.The lawless, world-altering scenario Humanz presents us with is not a poorly attended inauguration but a massive, cross-genre party, composed largely on an iPad by Albarn and illustrated by his mate Jamie Hewlett. Taking a look at the albums futuristic floor-fillers leads to the standout Momentz, where De La Soul give hangover advice over a strict marching beat, wriggling synths and a massive, jolting mantra. Or Charger, where Grace Jones bares some sphinx-like teeth over a distorted two-note line to declare I am the ghost / I am the soul / Im gonna take you for a ride/ No antennas, while Albarns bewildered vocals splutter out in flouncy dribs and drabs. So strange, its fantastic
