Tue, 28 Sep 2010 12:32:17
Generations and genres collide in record stores this week and on the charts. Legendary guitarists and singer/songwriters share space with younger whippersnappers and a country hero! We're giving you a Twitter-sized rundown of each release.
Kenny Wayne Shepherd Live in Chicago: The guitar hero teams up with blues legends. Old meets new.
Neil Young Le Noise: The folky legend partners with producer Daniel Lanois here.
Kenny Chesney Hemingway's Whiskey: It's Fall. It's football season. That's why Chesney's lead single, "The Boys of Fall," resonates so much with us. His twangy voice speaks to Middle America because he is Middle America. Friday Night Lights!
Jimmy Eat World Invented: Early ‘00s post-emo rockers return. Kids still care six albums deep into the bands career. Their knack for big hooks, catchy melodies and sing-a-long-ability remains in tact.
Soundgarden Telephantasm: They are back together. Strike a Jesus Christ pose, even though this is a "best of" and not a new album.
Phil Collins Going Back: The Genesis singer faithfully offers his take on Motown and old soul classics. He did cover "You Can't Hurry Love" way back, so this isn't a shocking release.
What releases are you planning to pick up this week?
