Johansson, Scarlett / Tom Waits Related

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Johansson, Scarlett / Tom Waits Related - Anywhere I Lay My Head Anywhere I Lay My Head
Pop New - LP 454588 Atco
Sealed, Out Of Print 2008 Gatefold Original. Limited Edition Packaging Includes Special Advent Calendar Design, With Surprise Photos Behind Each Door. "Similar To Tom Waits’ Starring Role As A Hard-Luck DJ In Jim Jarmusch’s Down By Law, Johansson’s Decision To Make An Album Of Waits Songs Is A Can’t-Lose Proposition, A Left-Field Creative Exercise That’s Insulated From Criticism Because It’s So Free Of Vanity And Opportunism. But Where Waits’ Genius Lies In His Ability To Create Songs That Sound Like They Were Found In A Forgotten Vault In The Library Of Congress, Johansson And Her Collaborators Bravely Twist The Material Away From Its Timeless Appeal, Turning Waits’ Greasy Originals Into Glistening Pop Songs That Sound Like They Could Have Been Released On 4AD In The Mid ’80s. They Trade Boozy Sprawl For Exacting Precision, Whirring Organs And Shoegazey Guitar Fuzz To Make A Wall Of Reverb On “Falling Down.” And The Clicking Drum Machine And Crystalline Synths Of “I Don’t Want To Grow Up” Create A Shimmering Counterpoint To The Junkyard Grit Of Waits’ Original. The Classic “Fannin’ Street” Is Remade As An Ethereal Girl-Group Epic, And “No One Knows I’m Gone” Becomes An Ominously Rumbling Space Drone. Through It All, Johansson Is Just Another Instrument In The Mix, And Her Willingness To Allow The Arrangements To Transform Waits’ Creaky Intimacy Into Wide-Eyed Atmosphere Ultimately Results In The Rare Covers Album That Actually Has Its Own Identity." - Matt Fink, Paste... more details
