ryan adams – gold 2001 (weekend classic album)

ryan adams

The “it” boy of early-’00s roots-rock, former Whiskeytown leader Ryan Adams has responded to the mountain of hype surrounding him with an arrogance worthy of his idol, mid-’60s Bob Dylan. Accordingly he follows his stripped-down solo debut with a two-disc, fully produced set that finds him grasping for the mantle of alt-country messiah. GOLD picks up where Whiskeytown’s swan song FAITHLESS STREET left off; a step removed from the country-rock hard line but still full of rootsy, organic, Band-like warmth.

The up-tempo opening tune “New York, New York” recalls vintage Steve Forbert, while “Answering Bell” sounds like David Gray fronting the aforementioned Band on a rewritten “The Weight.” The epic, acoustic guitar-based ballad “Nobody’s Girl” is one of the more overtly Dylanesque pieces here, and while trying to overshadow Zimmy is a fool’s errand no matter how big your britches, one has to admire Adams for the considerable chutzpah necessary to even take up the task. Whether you believe he’s the Gram Parsons of the 21st century or not, its that undeniable spirit and ambition that lay at the heart of GOLD’s appeal.

drummer – feel good together 2009

l_4bb6d86325274bf6a2d8d31a2a73426ePatrick Carney, drummer for the Black Keys, perceived in his mind’s eye one snowy February afternoon in 2009. “Dan (Auerbach, vocalist/guitarist for the Black Keys) was leaving on tour to support his solo record, and I wasn’t going to have anything to do for a while,” says Patrick of his impetus to start this new band. He immediately established a psychic link with old friend Jamie Stillman, better known as the drummer in both Columbus, Ohio’s hirsute lumberjacks Teeth of the Hydra and Kent, Ohio’s popular art-school dweebs Harriet the Spy.

Jamie liked the idea of a band dedicated to good feelings, and thought their mutual pal Jon Finley, former drummer for Kent, Ohio’s legendary show-offs Party of Helicopters (for which Jamie played guitar) and current singer/multi-instrumentalist for Kent, Ohio’s lovable ne’er-do-wells Beaten Awake, might be interested as well. Via three-way telepathic hook-up, Jamie and Jon discussed the plan with Stephen Clements, drummer for Akron, Ohio’s blustery train-wreck Houseguest, knowing, as they did, that few men were more skilled in the subtle science of feeling good.

Now Patrick had four of his intended five. Four drummers, not drumming. Patrick would play bass, Jamie guitar, Jon would sing and play guitar, and Steve, keyboards. But, now, who would drum the drums? What of a band of four drummers, without a fifth to drum those drums? The answer appeared in a radiant fever vision, alighting gently upon all four brains simultaneously: the perfect fifth for this proposed super-group was Greg Boyd, late of Cincinnati, Ohio surf-rock band Ghostman & Sandman. Greg could and would hit those drums (and rhythmically, no less) without hesitation.

Retreating to Patrick’s North Akron bunker, the band began writing furiously in the hopes of releasing a record before the next winter set in. Engineering the recording sessions was Ben Vehorn, whose credits include Love as Laughter, Licorice Roots, Houseguest, and Other Girls. What emerged were eleven songs of classic, feel-good rock, suitable for listening to while doing donuts with an ’86 IROC in the Dairy Queen parking lot, or polishing off a six-pack on the local Par 3.

The five members of Drummer are your kind of people, and their debut album, Feel Good Together, is your kind of music. It encapsulates the soul of Northeastern Ohio, where, whether in reference to local sports, the local economy, or just trying to find one’s place in the world, the phrases “almost, but not quite” and “better luck next time” are applicable in perpetuity. But who cares? Not Drummer. If nothing else pans out, hopefully we can, at least, say we had a good time. Whatever you need to do, it can probably wait ‘til tomorrow. For now, put the record on, sit down, and let’s just feel good. Together.

Drummer’s debut album, Feel Good Together, will be available September 29th from Audio Eagle Records.

deep-dark

1. The Stanley Brothers- Rank Strangers
An Old hymn written by one of the greatest hymn writers of all time Albert Brumley. Ralph and Carter Stanley harmonize like brothers should, it makes you ache, especially if you haven’t been to church in a while.

2. Bill Monroe and His Bluegrass Boys- Little Community Church
Another beauty in the harmony department. It aches and pains me to listen to this one. One of Bill Monroe’s finest moments.

3. Bob Dylan- When He Returns
A real gem that people seem to forget about, just Bob Dylan and his piano from the wonderful gospel record “Slow Train Coming”. You can really hear that Dylan is on fire on this recording.

4. Five Blind Boys Of Alabama- I Can See Everybody’s Mother
I real beauty from 1964, this great band has been performing together since 1948 forming at Talladega Blind School in Alabama. This is one of those rare tracks that can bring a man to his knees and thank the good Lord for this wonderful music.

5. Al Green- Jesus Is Waiting
From Al Green’s Call Me album, one of his best. This track is by far the best tune on the album, beautiful strings and soulful singing by Mr. Green.

6. Elvis Presley- Milky White Way
Off of Elvis’ best gospel record “His Hand In Mine”. Really nice backing vocals by the Jordanaires. Showing that Elvis still had some great performances left in the old tank back in 1960. A lot of people say that Elvis started to suck after he left Sun Records. Well let me tell you, Elvis’ album from 1956-1960 are all fantastic.

7. Flatt and Scruggs- Take Me In A Lifeboat
A great early track by one of greatest bluegrass bands of all time. It’s a nice fast one that can make you a really happy person on a lonesome Sunday morning.

8. Johnny Cash- Lead Me Gently Home
From 1958, a real beauty from one of the greatest gospel country singers of all time. It comes from the album “Hymns”. It’s a very short album, but very good.

9. Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers- Steal Away
Before Sam Cooke went pop he led a wonderful gospel group the Soul Stirrers. They have a lot of great tunes, but “Steal Away” is one of the best.

10. The Staple Singers- Let Me Ride
Old Pops really shows his guitar skills on this one. Parliament/Funkadelic later did a nice cover of this tune, but there ain’t nothing better than the Staples version of this old black gospel hymn.
