Pearl Jam- your uncles favorite grunge band- has rarely taken the wild risk. They’ve played it mostly safe while navigating the cluttered rock and roll landscape for the past 30 years. Imagine the surprise when this new gem, “Dance Of The Clairvoyants” popped up on my radar this morning. Eddie’s been studying. Eddie’s been watching. Now Eddie’s writing some infectious shit that fits as nicely into the fabric of 2020 as it would have in the late 80’s. Before you get your panties in a bunch- this is clearly a Pearl Jam cut. The trademark howl is intact. The guitars slice through the channels just like they’ve always done. Just this time, Vedder and the boys are freewheeling a bit- it’s a tight mess in the vein of Julian Casablancas’ Voidz project. The Talking Heads are peeking out from behind a 20 foot stack of amps- while Bowie is somewhere nodding his head, completely at peace with what his influence can do to even the most macho bands in America. Love to be a fly on the wall at MSG in March for the old head dance party this one is guaranteed to incite.  A-
