Weekly Wants - The Four Picks Fix
GREEN
BLACK & WHITE
$11.99(sale priced)
As the group was beginning to work on the songs for their next full-length studio album, they took some time to look back and celebrate their decade as a groundbreaking band. Black & White gave The Green the chance to revisit some of the most popular songs in their extensive catalog and see them with new eyes, recording new, soulful acoustic arrangements that echo the intimacy you'd find hanging with the band in the green room before a show. This love letter of an album to their fans gave them a chance to look back, before turning to working on their upcoming studio album, which is sure to push the boundaries of reggae and pop as this band has always done.As for why they called the album Black & White, it comes from the simplicity of their approach. Guitarist/singer JP Kennedy says, 'We really liked the idea of taking a previously recorded song and stripping it down to a few key elements. Less is more.' Black and White was self-produced by The Green (with a little help from Leslie Ludiazo, the bands original drummer, and Lapana Ieriko, one of Hawaii's best producers). The album was mixed and mastered by Danny Kalb, who also co-produced and mixed their third album, Hawai'i '13 (2013).
ANDREW BIRD
MY FINEST WORK YET
$12.99(sale priced)
My Finest Work Yet finds Bird grappling with themes of current day dichotomies and how to identify a moral compass amidst such divisive times. Im interested in the idea that our enemies are what make us wholetheres an intimacy one shares with their opponent when locked in such a struggle. If we were to just walk away would our enemies miss us? How did we get to this point and how can we, through awareness of it, maybe pull ourselves out of this death spiral, says Bird. The opening track, 'Sisyphus,' is heavily embellished with Bird's trademark whistling; the energizing, upbeat song with elements of folk and jazz makes for a strong start. 'Bloodless' and 'Archipelago' both have a blues feel to them; with rattling tambourine layered with the violin and piano, there is a sense of sophistication here. On delicate folk-rock tune 'Manifest,' Bird describes 'tracing our evolution from single celled organisms to modern man.' Amongst hypnotic strings and ethereal symphonic sounds, Bird gently sings 'I'm starting to question my manifest destiny, my claim to this frontier / I'm coming to the brink of a great disaster.' Poetically capturing fearing the unknown, Bird masters the art of easing everyday worries though his artistry
MEGADETH
WARHEADS ON FOREHEADS (3 CD SET)
$24.99(sale priced)
MEGADETH will celebrate its 35th anniversary with the release of 'Warheads On Foreheads', a 35-track career retrospective. The anthology spans the band's entire studio recording career, from its first album 'Killing Is My BusinessAnd Business Is Good' to its 2016 Grammy Award-winning release 'Dystopia', and will be available as a 3-CD set, 2018 marked the 35th anniversary for Megadeth, one of the most influential powerhouses in thrash metal. All year long the band celebrated with various events, culminating in Warheads on Foreheads - with Dave Mustaine personally A&R'ing a new anthology honoring his legacy - 35 tracks for 35 years, on 3CD, Digital and 4LP. For the first time, a Megadeth anthology includes tracks from The System Has Failed, United Abominations, Endgame, Th1rt3en, Super Collider and the Grammy award winning Dystopia. 'Warheads on foreheads' is a military term expressed when bombing missions are underway.
JENNY LEWIS
ON THE LINE
$11.99(sale priced)
Jenny Lewis has had a rough few years leading up to her new solo album, Can you be my puzzle piece, baby, when I cry like Meryl Streep? she asks in the lovely, melancholy Party Clown, which has vocals reminiscent of her breakout album, Rabbit Fur Coat, but maintains the mix of 70s rock and hip-hop-tinged rhythms of her more recent work. When I crack my head open, I want my baby next to me. Lewis has always been a meticulous, detailed writer, either on her own or in her former band, Rilo Kiley. However, the combination of her circumstances and the ambitious mix of musical styles behind her lyrics here makes her songs more poignant than ever. And she has plenty of first-class help to realize her vision.As soon as the drums kick in on Heads Will Roll, its clear that its Ringo Starr. And Starr teams up with the great Jim Keltner on the groove-driven Red Bull & Hennessey, made even tougher by producer Shawn Everett. Its one of many in On the Line about escaping the worlds pressures, with Lewis cooing vocals contrasting nicely against the muscular drumming. On Do Si Do, produced by Beck, Lewis sings about using music as an escape from suicidal thoughts. Then, on the breezy, Carole King-ish Wasted Youth, where Lewis declares, I wasted my youth on a poppy, she sings of the repercussions of escapism, from heroin to Candy Crush.
