New CD Album Releases, 4-26-2011: Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Robert Johnson Centennial

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Robert JohnsonThere are a couple of moderately interesting new releases this week. Steve Earle has I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive. The previews sound pretty listenable. Also, Emmylou Harris has Hard Bargain.

Also there is a Robert Johnson Centennial Collection on the occasion of his 100th birthday. However, he didn’t make it past age 26. He spent a total of five days recording 29 songs. I appreciate the idea of paying the greatest of the traditional original blues guitarists and songwriters his props, but there are obviously no new recordings to find. Plus, there’s only so much they can do with cleaning up the sound of these 75 year old recordings. You can DOWNLOAD ALL OF ROBERT JOHNSON’S SONGS freely at MoreThings. Perhaps you’d like to start with the “Me and the Devil Blues.”

New CD Album Releases, 4-19-2011: Gorillaz, Brian Setzer

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

The Gorillaz new album The Fall comes with the technical distinction of being the first major album recorded entirely on an Apple iPad or some such. The full album is available for free listening on the official website. You can save yourself the bother, for I have done so for you and can tell you that there’s no songwriting here to speak of, and not even one lame hook that I could remember even while I was listening to it. Pretty much a total waste. There’s definitely no “Clint Eastwood” here.

Brian Setzer has an instrumental album this week, Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL!. Mostly, he’s making like Chet Atkins here. He actually sounds pretty credible at it, as you might best tell from his rendition of “Blue Moon of Kentucky” which is available for free download from Amazon. I’ve thought of him mostly as a stylist, but this set shows him off doing some fancy picking worth listening to. From my only moderate knowledge of his catalog, I’d pick this as perhaps his best work outside the Stray Cats.

New CD Album Releases, 4-12-2011: Paul Simon, Alison Krauss, k.d. lang, Foo Fighters

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Paul Simon playing a cigar box guitar
Praise be to the Lord for giving us Paul Simon, for it is much like Christmas Day whenever he gives us a new album. In 2011, Christ sends down his love on the wings of a Jew in So Beautiful or So What. He particularly sings in anticipation of the true King of the Jews in the first song and lead single “Getting Ready for Christmas Day”. With any luck, this song will become a staple of Christmas music broadcasting, providing a moment of real and moving art amidst the regular nonsense.

At least half of these songs are sure to be regarded as classics. You really have to hear “Rewrite.” I start to say that it has the most amazing and beautiful guitar sounds on any Paul Simon song, but I’m not sure exactly what instruments are playing the things here. There are liner credits for instruments I can’t even spell with the booklet in front of me. But somebody here plays stuff like I never heard before.

Then there’s “Love Is Eternal Sacred Light” which is a beautiful title to meditate on. In the documentary DVD that comes with the album, Simon talks about watching a guy in Missisippi playing Delta blues and giving him this cigar box guitar, and he’s picking out a little of the riff that becomes this song. Except that when I hear the record, it sounds like some freaky idea of a techno record – though you’d certainly never mistake this for Moby. So it’s kind of a Delta blues techno record with strong hooks and a great feeling of dramatic urgency. If that idea sounds at all intriguing to you, then you’ll likely think this is an awesome song.

More notes and pictures for So Beautiful or So What

Alison Krauss is back with Paper Airplane. It is her first album since the big hit collaboration with Robert Plant on Raising Sand in 2007. It is her first album with her Union Station band since 2004. Just listening to previews, I didn’t hear any hooks. It sounds very classy and respectable.
