40 tracks recorded live on the Eels 2010 and 2011 world tours: 20 from a 2010 show and 20 from a 2011 show — both shows recorded at First Avenue in Minneapolis — one of the EELS’ favorite venues. You can practically hear the ghost of Prince filming Purple Rain in the house! Hear EELS rip, roar and soar through 40 EELS favorites, with only one title appearing twice – the 2010 and 2011 versions of “My Beloved Monster,” which we’re pretty sure you will be able to tell the difference between!

Erin McKeown’s third album is to be commended for its sense of adventure. There are 14 tracks on Grand and they encompass at least that number of musical styles, among them winsome indie-pop, gentle country-rock, lushly orchestrated barrel-organ stompery and pretty electronica that verges on trip-hop. When trying to frame McKeown in terms of other artists, you end up with an equally impressively diverse peer group: Tanya Donelly, Rickie Lee Jones, Bjork, Liquorice and Shivaree (with whom McKeown shares a drummer, George Javori).
