Buy Dirt

Jordan Davis

Country - Released October 15, 2021 | MCA Nashville

Hi-Res
Buy Dirt is nominally an eight-song EP, but considering that the opening "Blow Up Your TV" doesn't break the minute mark and plays like a preamble for the title track instead of its own thing -- and recycles the 2020 hit "Almost Maybes" from Davis' eponymous 2020 EP -- this feels even shorter than most mini-LPs. Brevity isn't necessarily a problem when it comes to Jordan Davis, however, he's an amiable country singer who enthusiastically seeks out the middle of the road. He may be recording mellow mood music, usually easing into soulful good vibes but taking time to flirt with good old country traditions, as on the title track where he duets with Luke Bryan. If Davis is a bit overshadowed by Bryan's charisma, it's also true that Davis' voice is more malleable, sounding at home when he's brooding over heartbreak or summoning a smile for the open road. All this is evident on Buy Dirt's 19 minutes of new material, a length which winds up being just long enough to showcase Davis' surprisingly supple country-pop skills without a dose of repetition. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Revived Remixed Revisited

Reba McEntire

Country - Released October 8, 2021 | MCA Nashville

Hi-Res
Revived Remixed Revisited is an ambitious catalog project where Reba McEntire looks back upon her career and decides to present familiar songs in three new lights. "Revived" finds McEntire delivering old hits in the overblown fashion of her stage show, "Remixed" offers ten dance club-oriented remixes of old recordings, while "Revisited" contains acoustic-anchored rearrangements of ten old tunes. It's a lot to absorb, with "Fancy" being the common thread: the song concludes each of the three discs, illustrating how "Revived" is splashy and melodramatic, "Remixed" is bombastic and slightly tacky, and "Revived" is stripped-down and soulful. There are merits to all three approaches and, when combined, they do give a sense of why Reba McEntire remains a country and pop icon 40 years after her first big hits. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

star-crossed

Kacey Musgraves

Country - Released September 10, 2021 | MCA Nashville

Hi-Res
For months before the release of her fourth album, Kacey Musgraves made it clear that star-crossed was going to be her big breakup record: a follow-up to both her three-year marriage to singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly and her blissful-in-love album Golden Hour. But this is no vengeful divorcée screed; Musgraves charts all the stages of break-up grief—denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. Stark opener "star-crossed," helped along by Spanish guitar, sets the scene as one of melodrama by going so far as to draw allusions to Romeo and Juliet. While its lyrics present Musgraves and Kelly's love as one for the storybooks, AutoTune-heavy "good wife" offers a much more pedestrian view. She weighs the struggles of marital conflict (the bargaining lines of "I could be more fun ... I could pack him a bowl") against the idea of giving up ("I could probably make it on my own ... I don't want to be alone"). Musgraves has cited Sade and Daft Punk as influences—along with Weezer, Bill Withers and the Eagles—for the album, and this song is their crossroads. "breadwinner" is one of the few times she dips into the brutally honest territory of the Chicks' Gaslighter, offering a peek into what it was like being married to a (much, much) less successful songwriter: "He wants a breadwinner/ He wants your dinner/ Until he ain't hungry anymore/ He wants your shimmer/ To make him feel bigger." Even as the words sting, it remains sonically cool. As Musgraves moves more toward chilly synths and shimmering dance beats on tracks like "simple times" and "cherry blossom," there are also moments that feel like "old Kacey." You can hear it in the way her voice breaks just a little on the gentle "angel" (which finds her taking responsibility for her own human downfalls—as in, she's no angel). Gorgeous "camera roll," which could be an outtake from one of her early records, is like a modern-day answer to Paul Simon's "Kodachrome" and the slippery trick of photographic nostalgia. Musgraves has always been able to convey bittersweetness better than just about anyone else in her generation, and you really feel it here: "Chronological order ain't nothing but torture/ Scroll too far back, that's what you get/ I don't wanna see 'em, but I can't delete 'em." It all closes out with a dustily spooky, almost David Lynch-ian cover of the stirring ballad "gracias la vida" by late Chilean activist and folk legend Violeta Parra. As heart-wrenching as the song sounds, its translated words offer great empathy and hope: "Thanks to life, which has given me so much/ It gave me laughter and it gave me tears ... The two elements that make up my song/ And your song, as well, which is the same song." © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz
