Daily Downloads (The Sharp Things, Ryan Adams, and more)

Jim Santo of the Sharp Things shares the backstory behind the song "Cruel Thing" off the band's latest album, A Moveable Feast.

Our new album was mixed and mastered and ready to go, but then Sharp Things leader Perry Serpa played a demo of "Cruel Thing" for Bar/None Records owner Glenn Morrow, who proceeded to get very excited and insisted the tune be included on A Moveable Feast. Our intrepid co-producer Prince Polo came to the rescue, arranging for a two-day session at the Truth & Soul recording studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Successor to the fabled Soul Fire Recordings, Truth & Soul specializes in recreating the classic soul sounds of the late '60s and early '70s, and that's just what we got!
