Weekly Wants - The Four Picks Fix
FRANTI MICHAEL & SPEARHEAD
STAY HUMAN II
$9.99(sale priced)
Michael Franti is nothing if not socially conscious. As the founder and leader of reggae fusion group Spearhead, his music has long embraced revolutionary ideals of peace, love, and understanding. His 2001 concept album Stay Human, with a central anti-death penalty message, celebrated how 'all the freaky people make the beauty of the world', an evergreen sentiment. Eighteen years and seven albums later, Franti and Spearhead have weathered the same traumatic cultural storms as the rest of us, and Stay Human Vol. II proves that the group still has every awareness of the world today - and has no intention of giving up just yet.While Franti's music has never been frivolous, the events and issues he draws on in Stay Human Vol. II feel particularly weighty. Bittersweet ballad 'The Flower', a vocal duet with Victoria Canal, advocates the end of gun violence, making particular allusions to the Pulse mass shooting in Orlando. The group and guest vocalist Hirie revisit 2010 Spearhead love song 'Only Thing Missing Was You' with a broader lyrical perspective, finding refuge from global crises in individual love.
KEUNING (KILLERS)
PRISMISM
$9.99(sale priced)
Prismism examines our basic relationships and interactions, with family, friends and co-workers, how one can feel trapped by their surroundings, as well as those that rely on them, emotionally and/or professionally. It applies to Dave's difficulties in reconciling his domestic and career choices and finds the solution in the very thing that brought him here in the first place -- the music. Combining both acoustic and electric guitars, as well as a longtime fascination with keyboards and electronic music -- which he wasn't able to explore as much as he would've liked in The Killers -- Keuning has created a psychic diary that allows us to connect the dots and learn what brought him to a career crossroads.
SANTANA
IN SEARCH OF MONA LISA
$7.99(sale priced)
Although Carlos Santana has been playing concerts in Paris since the early Seventies, he never set foot inside the Louvre until 2016. In fact, when his family asked if he wanted to go there, he asked, Whats there? They said, Oh, my God, man. You can spend a whole year in there,' he recalls. Theres Egyptian stuff and The Mona Lisa. I go, like, Oh, OK.' He was blown away just by the line to get in. It was like a line youd see for Beyonc, Taylor Swift, Rihanna or Adele, he says, amazement still in his voice. I was like, Damn, Mona Lisas really popular worldwide to this day. hree spellbinding and transportive new songs takes listeners inside a magical and deeply personal experience Carlos had when he visited the Louvre Museum and set his eyes on Leonardo da Vincis beguiling masterpiece.In all of the years that the guitar icon had visited Paris, he had never been to the Louvre, but on a recent day off while on tour, he decided to go to the museum with his wife, drummer Cindy Blackman Santana, and his family. All it took was one look into the implacable eyes of the Mona Lisa for Santana to feel as though something strange and powerful was taking place.
WALTER TROUT
SURVIVOR BLUES
$13.99(sale priced)
Walter Trout will release his new album 'Survivor Blues' on the Provogue label. Walter Trout is no ordinary artist. Survivor Blues is no ordinary covers album. From the day he conceived the project to the moment he counted off the first song in the studio, Walter Trout had a bolder plan for Survivor Blues. 'I'm riding in my car sometimes,' says the US blues titan. 'I've got a blues station on and here's another band doing Got My Mojo Workin'. And there's a little voice in me that says, 'Does the world need another version of that song?' So I came up with an idea. I didn't want to do Stormy Monday or Messin' With The Kid. I didn't want to do the blues greatest hits. I wanted to do old, obscure songs that have hardly been covered. And that's how Survivor Blues started...'
