Let’s listen to a little Cardinology (Ryan Adams)

My friend Tom, who is awesome, went on a scavenger hunt and dug up some live versions of new Ryan Adams & The Cardinals songs that are showing up on the tracklist for Cardinology (due out October 28 on Lost Highway). I’ve added to it, let’s have a listen! Shocking, it’s a little jammy.

Born Into A Light
Go Easy
Fix It
(first single, hear it here)
Let Us Down Easy
Crossed Out Name
Natural Ghost
Sink Ships
Like Yesterday

Ryan and his Cardinals are on Letterman the day after the album is released, October 29.

  • Greatness!

    It’s been said a million times but ever since sobriety kicked in, Ryan has sounded amazing. The songs, his voice, it’s been quite a leap forward for him. He was great before but now, he’s really hitting a stride.

  • I agree with the comments….but, I really miss his kick ass rockin style of the early days. I’m not saying I dislike his music now because I love it. But the last couple of shows compared to the first couple are very different. I know he quit drinking and doin the drugs. But drink a Red Bull and flip out again. He still sounded amazing and it wasn’t like he was turning 100% jam band on us live.

  • I can’t say that sobriety has helped Ryan. Easy Tiger has couple of good songs, and a handful of decent songs. I’d like to see him come somewhere near the sheer brilliance of Cold Roses. I heard Tom Schick produced Cardinology. If that’s true, I’m optimistic. Easy Tiger was disturbingly over-produced.

    Thanks for the links.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
