Rich Reese
Pop! The Beat Bubble Burst's Most Anticipated of 2013


 

 

 

Billy Bragg - Tooth and Nail (Essential) 3/19

 

Looks like Billy has gone all T-Bone Burnett on this one. Dobros and stand-up bass and 12-string Rickenbacker and hammond B3 for a whole lot of jangle. And it suits him well. Hope he brings the tour around these parts.

 

 

Chris Stamey - Lovesick Blues (Yep Roc) 2/5

 

If Stamey continues on the same path he's been on with the dB's "Falling Off The Sky" from last year and Holsapple and Stamey's '09 offering, "Here and Now," I'll be writing him down on my end-of-the-year "best of" list.

 

 

Eels - Wonderful, Glorious (Vagrant) 2/5

 

Mark Everett and company have taken a bit of a break after producing about eight albums in a year and a half -- well, actually three in two years, but it seems like more. The stream of consciousness approach was nice, but I'd like to see a more polished production with a lean toward melody that hearkens back to the days of "A Man Called (E)" and "Broken Toy Shop."

 

 

Richard Thompson - Electric (New West) 2/5

 

Can't go wrong with Richard Thompson. I haven't heard anything about what to expect with this new one, but the title implies volume and effusive playing. Bombastic -- that's what I envision, but I'll settle for restrained.

 

 

Ron Sexsmith - Forever Endeavour (Mri Associated) 2/5

 

It's only been two years since Ron gave us the exquisitely tuneful "Long Player Late Bloomer," which can be said about his entire catalog. This one should be more of the same.

 

 

David Bowie - The Next Day (Columbia) 3/12

 

It's been 10 years since Bowie's last studio release, "Reality." The trip from middle-aged to old in the world of rock 'n' roll is closely watched. Will the artist become a parody of himself? How will the voice sound? I think this album will show that he has made the transition with grace, dignity and his usual flair.
