Taylor Swift: Evermore (Album of the Week)

Taylor Swift snuck out an album at the end of last year that's just fucking amazing. Channeling her inner Ryan Adams, Swift digs deep into her bag of emo for Evermore. This record is a stunning achievement and is easily my favorite of her entire catalog. 

It's pretty much got everything, folks. Check it out!

Dire Straits: Making Movies

I've been playing the third offering from London's own Dire Straits quite a bit lately. Seven tracks of sheer musical beauty. Their first two albums were stellar, don't get me wrong, but Making Movies showed an outfit ready to go beyond the stars. 

This video played a lot on MTV. I loved it every time I saw it.

Album of the Week: McCartney III by Paul McCartney

Macca was doing quarantine long before pandemics. His first solo album (McCartney) was recorded in seclusion at his Scottish farm and saw him playing and performing all instruments and vocals. Flash forward to McCartney II in 1980 which saw the same formula used albeit with a more techno sound than the first offering.

Now we have McCartney III, recorded this year during the quarantine. That amazing feeling of the other two records is present on this album along with some new sounds and horizons. 

I love the down-home feel!
