A View Of Other Windows: New Ryan Adams book

There is a new photography book detailing the touring and creative lives of Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, captured by multi-talented band guitarist Neal Casal. It’s called A View Of Other Windows and I don’t have it yet, so can’t speak to the quality beyond what I’ve seen of Neal to know that he has a knack for capturing small moments, which I love.

I was, however, taken by the little b-side song “Memory Lane” used to soundtrack the trailer for the book. It was released on the special UK/Ireland versions of Cardinology, and perhaps selected here because of its line about “pictures taken by someone else…”

Memory Lane (UK bonus track) – Ryan Adams

  • Danish isn’t one of my languages, but it appears above as if your blog is reaching even further, Heather…

    Just when I thought it was safe to tuck Ryan Adams away as a brilliant-yet-oafish artist who wasn’t worth the trouble to follow any longer, you go and post this song. Dang. Yeah, it’s that good – good enough to dig out everything back to Heartbreaker (Whiskeytown never left the ‘favored’ side of the list…) and give it a spin today.

  • Ryan Adams is SO amazing, all of his music is so beautiful – he’s so rare; so prolific yet so profound, and touching – a real artist.

"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..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"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."
—Hunter S. Thompson

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.
