Dutch is the buzzed about new project featuring the vocals of newcomer Liz Fullerton and production by Stoupe of the critically acclaimed Hip-Hop group Jedi Mind Tricks. The union of Liz's deeply sympathetic vocal stylings and Stoupe's trademark visceral beats made both songs standout cuts from those records as both remain favorites with fans and critics alike.
Now, set as a two-piece outfit, Dutch is the full realization of the artistic accomplishment at which their previous collaborations only hinted. After years of critical and commercial success as the enigmatic production guru behind JMT, Stoupe wanted to make a different kind of record; something that kept the same raw aesthetic he pioneered with his prior work, while allowing him to branch out as both a producer and songwriter.
Liz's timely and fortuitous entry into the group's life was a destiny that seemed undeniable, if not a little bit lucky. Nearly three years in the making, the album features 12 hand-crafted tracks which have conjured comparisons to the dark programming aesthetics of Portishead, the soul-piercing melodies of Cat Power, and the viscerally provoking tone of Dido.

Well, prime-time side-project status, at least. Dutch performs with Kuf Knotz at 9 p. Look for that to be doubly so tonight, when the local rock quartet celebrates the release of its second full-length, Man Is Nature.

Vig started doubting it could be done fully analog once the tapes for the first song recorded, "Miss the Misery", started falling apart, but Grohl reassured him "no, Butch, I don't want any computer in this house at all.
It took me about 20 minutes to do the first edit! Eventually he gave up and decided to punch in and punch out tapes instead, as the process was time-consuming and a more editable tape sent to Vig from Smart Studios was mostly ruined by one of Grohl's daughters.
The mixing started at Chalice Recording Studios , but moved to Grohl's house as engineer Alan Moulder said it was the way "to make it sound like your garage. The recording of the album was filmed as part of a career-spanning documentary called Back and Forth ,  which Grohl said was essential to make audiences understand the decision to record the album in his garage.
For Wasting Light , Grohl stated that they would go back to a rawer and heavier sound after "exploring new musical ground" on the previous records,  adding that "with the last album we were too concerned with being musical, now it's time for us to be a rock band again". The last couple [records] had some big dynamic changes. I don't know if I'm going to be able to make this record when I'm 46 or It's my last chance. For the guitar sound, the group tried to balance Grohl's "playing the rhythm straight up the middle", Shiflett's "sharp and clean sense of melodic playing", and Smear's more aggressive sound,  with Grohl declaring that "with three guitars, you have to be careful that it doesn't become a huge fucking mess.
But when everybody's playing their thing really well, it sounds perfectly orchestrated. The lyrics for Wasting Light were completed during the week each song was being recorded.
Grohl said that the words were "what was on my mind each week",  most being "written from the perspective of who I was then and who I am now",  with references to the past, life and death,  and "time, but questioning whether it matters at all. There's so much focus on the before that people forget there's an after. You don't have to try to write 'Imagine' every time you sit down with a pen and paper". The first CD copies of the album contain a small section of the original analogue master tape.
Grohl decided to it both for thinking it "would be an extraordinary move to destroy all the masters and give the pieces of the tapes to the fans", as the digital recording does not allow for such a memento, and also due to every technician involved with Wasting Light being overtly worried about the tapes.
The album was issued on CD, a double vinyl record and digital download. The pre-orders had the option for both the CD and LP with a T-shirt, and a Deluxe packaging that came with both the CD and LP, a T-shirt, a beer coaster , an iron-on patch, a wristband and a signed lithograph of the album cover.
Extensive updates on the production of Wasting Light were up on the band's website and Twitter , because, as put by RCA Records executive Aaron Borns, "the band wanted to be more engaged with the fans earlier this time. On January 17, , the band released a second teaser of the song "Bridge Burning" on their website,  and on February 1, the band revealed a teaser for "Miss the Misery" along with the album name and an April 12 release date.
The most successful was "Walk", which also topped the Rock and Alternative charts. Wasting Light received generally positive reviews from music critics. At Metacritic , which assigns a normalized rating out of to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 78, based on 37 reviews. Club said that, although it lacks recognizable hooks, the album also lacks the filler of the band's previous albums and stated, "As a return to Foo Fighters' specialty—melodic, hard-hitting rock with soaring choruses— Wasting Light is a success.
In a mixed review, Slant Magazine ' s Kevin Liedel criticized the band's "growing aversion to anthemic songs," writing that "the obvious high points of Wasting Light are those that strive for stadium-pleasing melodies. The album debuted at number one in twelve countries. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Foo Fighters seventh studio album. Foo Fighters. Alternative rock  post-grunge  hard rock .

I said, 'Well, it sounds really loud and trashy, but I don't see why we can't do it. That threw me for a loop; I've made lots of records that way, just not for the last 10 years. But Dave really wanted it to be about the sound and the performance.
They'd just played some shows at Wembley Stadium , and he told me, 'We've gotten so huge, what's left to do? We could go back to and make a big, slick, super-tight record just like the last one. Or we could try to capture the essence of the first couple of Foo Fighters records. Sample of the album's lead single " Rope ", showcasing the album's hard rock sound based on dual lead guitars.
And how much has passed and feeling born again, feeling like a survivor, thinking about mortality and death and life, and how beautiful it is to be surrounded by friends and family and making music.
