Ruby’s Prime Slices of the Week (2/25-3/4)

Joan As Police Woman – Damned Devotion (R&B, Singer Songwriter)

Lou Reed and Elton John collaborator, Joan Wasser, returns with her Joan As Police Woman project to deliver an excellent album that sounds both current and referential. Damned Devotion feels as though it has always existed. Wasser’s songwriting and arrangements are front and center and accented by the warm and clear production.

Favorite Songs: Wonderful, Warning Bell, The Silence

The Men – Drift (Experimental Rock)

The most recent album from Brooklyn based shape shifters The Men see them ricocheting between techno influenced post punk and folksy kraut rock. Drift encapsulates the last 5 decades of alternative and feels like a cult classic record that was stuck in time and never unearthed until now.

Favorite Songs: Maybe I’m Crazy, When I Held You In My Arms
