Grateful Dead – Midnight Hour (1986-03-24) Philly Spectrum



Day of the Dead [Box]


Day of the Dead [Box]


$30.81


Recording information: Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA; Echo Mountain, Ashville, NC; Miner Street Recordings, Philadelphia, PA. Creators: Aaron Dessner; Bryce Dessner. The Grateful Dead were not known for their modesty so perhaps it’s fitting that Day of the Dead, the 2016 tribute album assembled by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of the National for the Red Hot Organization, sprawls with abandon. At five and a half hours, the 59-track album – divided into three separate sets, like any good Grateful Dead concert – is longer than any individual Dead show but it’s not necessarily as far-reaching. The Dessners favor very specific traits within the Dead, eschewing folk, boogie, blues, and cowboy songs in favor of ever-expanding experimentalism. Bob Weir may sit in with the National for an album-closing I Know You Rider but he’s essentially been back-benched: his penchant for good-time rock & roll has been erased and he has a mere seven songwriting credits here, and three of those are band compositions (Dark Star being repeated twice). This means Day of the Dead is anchored on Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter songs, all filtered through an out sensibility indebted to Phil Lesh. Some of the contributions break this mold – Charles Bradley lays into a funky Cumberland Blues, Courtney Barnett sneers through New Speedway Boogie – but it’s rare to hear the kind of winding, intertwined guitar interplay that characterized so much prime Dead. It surfaces when Weir sits in with the National and Wilco, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks contribute a rangy, excellent China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, and J Mascis graces Kurt Vile’s Box of Rain with a gorgeous solo, but these are accents on an album that strips away any of the seedy, crunchy elements of jam band music. What’s left is striking, albeit an idiosyncratic interpretation of the Dead. If very few cuts here are especially rhythmic – an odd thing, considering the Dead had two percussionists – the emphasis on shifting texture

Por Favor [Digipak]


Por Favor [Digipak]


$10.06


Audio Mixers: Dave Cobb; Matt Ross-Spang. Recording information: Low Country Sound, Nashville, TN. Since making his debut in 2004, Brett Dennen’s amiable folk-pop has earned him a loyal following and placed him among some of the previous decade’s more prominent contemporary pop troubadours, from Jason Mraz to Ray LaMontagne. While he hasn’t quite enjoyed the success of those acts, it’s certainly not for lack of trying. His wealth of hooky melodies and thoughtful acoustic musings has been spread out over five strong releases and his almost John Denver-like aura of sincerity gives him an approachable allure. On Por Favor, the singer’s sixth effort, he strips his music down to the barest essentials to create what is easily his most vulnerable and intimate album. Admittedly worn thin by a relationship on the rocks, family trouble, and a health scare, this is a Dennen we’ve never heard, with a noticeably frayed spirit and a searching heart. The feeling of heightened sensitivity and the minimalist production from Nashville’s Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) gives Por Favor more of an organic and timeless feeling than any of Dennen’s prior work, and his quavering high tenor has never sounded so appropriate to the material. But even in his darkest hours, Dennen’s breezy style and humble demeanor make him come off like a fallen optimist trying to retune his antenna sunward. Light tones of calypso and reggae color tracks like What’s the Secret? and Stand Up for It, and the rhythm section of drummer Chris Powell and bassist Brian Allen pepper the tunes with a roomy, off-the-cuff vibe. On his sunnier moments, Dennen evokes the loose, rootsy vibe of American Beauty-era Grateful Dead, and there’s even a reference to Jerry Garcia on the hushed standout Strawberry Road. Recorded in just a couple of weeks at Cobb’s all-analog Nashville studio, the performances are loose and honest, with tape hiss filling the gaps between chords on quieter tunes like Where We Left Of

Brooklyn-based improvisational psych-rock trio Rhyton have gradually expanded their sound since their self-titled 2011 debut, incorporating exotic instrumentation and sharpening the focus of their work. Redshift, their third release for Thrill Jockey, is simultaneously their most down-to-earth recording as well as their most ambitious and wide-ranging. In the five years since its debut, the group has advanced significantly, moving beyond sounding like a jammy side project into something more concrete. The arrangements on this album are more complex, with tricky, non-repetitive rhythms and inventive tunings. Guitarist Dave Shuford (of No-Neck Blues Band) often twists his strings or utilizes unique combinations of speakers and pedals in order to produce unconventional sounds. His melodies are inspired by Middle Eastern and Greek folk music, and there are some hypnotic, raga-like moments as well (particularly the drumless Concentric Village). At the same time, the album also explores the group’s laid-back country-rock side, particularly on the Grateful Dead-esque title track. The album’s penultimate track is a cover of Joe Walsh’s Turn to Stone, with vocals fed through a Leslie speaker in order to produce a tremolo effect (think Black Sabbath’s Planet Caravan). From the song’s lyrical beginnings, they branch off into a swirling group improvisation, ending up at a more bracing finale. Rhyton sound like they could easily play for hours on end and not get tired, and possibly not even come close to reaching their peak, but they rein in their impulses in order to keep things focused and explore more ideas in the album format, and it works pretty well. ~ Paul Simpson
