Missy's Music Picks for October

Sundance Books and Music has a wonderful selection of CDs and vinyl in a wide array of genres, including rock, jazz, classical, blues, folk, hip-hop and more. We carry new releases as well as classic favorites. And if you don't see what you're looking for, we're always happy to special order.

The Beatles - Let It Be remixed editions

Recorded during a period of low morale for the group, the painful gestation of Let It Be is well documented. This new, remixed edition is available in several formats: a single disc, a double disc with nifty extras, and a ultra deluxe version loaded with all manner of unreleased goodies, including the original fabled Glyn Johns mix.

 

Mac Miller - Faces

Faces is an album originally made in 2014, and is the late lamented hip-hop sensation's 11th "mixtape". It consists of songs, spoken word fragments, and samples from film dialogue (and LOTS of special guests!). A major fan favorite, and considered one of Miller's best works, this long awaited release is available for a limited time in multi colored vinyl.

 

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga - Love for Sale

The 2nd album by Bennett and Gaga is being promoted as Bennett's last official recording, due to his health issues. Their 1st recording, Cheek to Cheek, was a huge success, capitalizing on the unusual nature of the collaboration. Like the earlier album, Love for Sale features great interpretations of classic songs from a bygone era.

 

War on Drugs - I Don't Live Here Anymore

What was once a collaboration between Kurt Vile (who left after the 1st album) and Adam Granduciel, has now evolved into a full-on legitimate band. Granduciel is the group's prime mover, writing and singing all the songs - which can be quite ambitious within their indie rock framework, and feature Graduciel's engaging Dylanesque drawl.

 

Brandi Carlile - In These Silent Days

One of music's most impressive singers, Brandi Carlile's latest makes a virtue of understatement and finesse. With her longtime bandmates, brothers Phil and Tim Hanseroth, and successful producer Dave Cobb, Carlile crafted an album that uses Paul Simon, John Prine and Joni Mitchell as touchstones for her songwriting. An album of the year contender.
