Shot photos today of Ryan Adams, the manic and brilliant and once-endlessly-prolific songwriter, who has a pretty decent new album of alt-country songs, and a really good short EP of punk bangers. He played a bit of both in the Soundcheck studio.
This is from a season four episode of Live From Abbey Road. Ryan Adams is a frustratingly inconsistant artist, but “Oh My Sweet Carolina” is still one of his best songs from Heartbreaker, an album that will likely forever be the high watermark that — rightfully or not — he’ll have his new music compared to. Oh, and Laura Marling’s harmonies are pretty great too.
