2013, Blue Note

VINYL FORMAT. Long-rumored and shrouded in mystery, this collaborative album between Elvis Costello and The Roots promises to be one of the most unexpected and revelatory releases of 2013. Born out of multiple performances by Costello on the Roots’ day/night job at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, this album developed organically and is definitely a situation where the whole is greater than the sum of the amazing parts. It surprises with how good the two elements gel, but also sounds exactly how you’d think in your wildest dreams. As The Roots’ ?uestlove notes, “it’s a moody, brooding affair, cathartic rhythms, and dissonant lullabies. I went stark and dark on the music. Elvis went HAM on some ole Ezra Pound shit.”
