New movie on music in the 80's 'Losers Take All'
Grizzly Bear is releasing an expanded version of their album Shields from last year and shared this bonus track "Will Calls" that will be on it. I have no idea how this slipped through the cracks because its legitimately one of their best songs.
I've been listening to the new albums from Amos Lee and The Avett Brothers. I like the Avetts' Magpie & the Dandelion better than I did the Carpenter. I'll be keeping it on high rotation for a while. Amos Lee's album's more hit and miss. There are some good songs on it, but there are quite a few that leave me scratching my head. I'm not sure what he's trying to do. At first I thought he was going full roots music, but some of the tracks have a weird slickness to them. 'Chill in the Air' (with Allison Krauss) is probably the best song on the album, imho.
I do like the new Avett Brothers' stuff, though. I was surprised that it was more dynamic than The Carpenter.
The new Pearl Jam album is incredible. It's easily their best in a long time.
I watched the documentary Pearl Jam 20 a while ago and noticed that in the beginning Eddie was crazy. There was footage of him climbing up in to the rafters and hanging, smashing guitars, being the front man most grunge fans were used to. Over the years he has mellowed and I think that has had a change on their music.
