Comprehensive Beatdown Episode 46: Mavis Staples - Livin' On A High Note

Comprehensive Beatdown hits you this week with Episode 46. Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G take a spin with the new Mavis Staples record, “Livin’ on a High Note,” which was released on February 19 on Anti Records. In keeping with her recent string of working with Indie Rock artists (namely Jeff Tweedy from Wilco on the past two projects), Staples turned to M. Ward to produce the album and contribute songwriting along with other artists like Neko Case, Ben Harper, Aloe Blacc, Nick Cave, and others.

The intro music is off of “Basar,” from German electronic duo Africaine 808 (one of Silent G’s favorite releases so far this year).

As always, you can follow Silent G’s 2016 Album/EPs playlist on Spotify to see what new music he is listening to this year (updated weekly).
