And the humans listened to AnCo. And the humans were glad that weed existed. And the human’s looked forward to a day when a new strain would be born and they would purchase it and proceed to smoke it and it would be called Centipede HZ.

Gold is like Easy Tiger to me in that the songwriting is pretty great but a lot of the songs were way better live, they had more energy and grit and were freed from the glossy production
29 has Strawberry Wine and Carolina Rain, and even the title track is hillariously awesome
Screw Demolition, get the four albums it’s comprised of instead, and other unreleased sessions and albums hopefully come out, like Darkbreaker and Blackhole… I mean the guy has so many awesome b-sides taht a lot of people don’t hear. Ryan should do a real b-side’s compilation like Oasis did with the Masterplan…
For example I’d say the best songs from Cardinology era weren’t even on the record (Heavy Orange & Memory Lane) and two great songs from around when Ashes and Fire came out that were only on 7 inch singles (Empty Room and Star Sign).
I’ll say Jacksonville and Cold Roses are 1A and 1B, and it would be cool to see that documentary about 2005 if it ever comes out, maybe with some live show stuff too
when’s the new record coming?
I like Lana Del Ray. She’s cool but pretty boring. Emphasis on pretty. But man the personalities in indie world are boring as fuck these days. Now we have that nerdy chick who was like the 35th ex-guitarist in Titus Andronicus complaining about LDR’s authenticity. Internet rock star rants were better when actually whackos like Ryan Adams was getting high and trying to figure out the universe via his blog.
I’m glad Ryan’s getting away from boring music like Cardinology and some of the bland Cardinal members. But fuck, it kinda stings when someone who’s put out so much great music now approaches it with such a “whatever” attitude. I don’t think people care that he’s putting this out – it’s pretty funny – but this is the guy that wrote Heartbreaker, Love is Hell, and Cold Roses. Not to mention the great unleased stuff like 48 Hours, Darkbreaker, and the two Sad Dracula albums. There’s way too much good Ryan Adams music that hasn’t been exposed, and it’s kind of disheartening when shit like this is what people are gonna be hearing. Oh well.
Vanderlyle Cry Baby is the best of the new songs you can find a good version of it on youtube
