Each week Release Day Picks profiles new LPs and EPs Team JamBase will be checking out on release day Friday. This week we highlight new albums by The Rides and Ryan Adams. Read on for more insight into the records we have all queued up to spin.

The Rides – Pierced Arrow

The Scoop: Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg have come back together for their second studio album as The Rides. Pierced Arrow was co-produced by the three principals and follows their 2013 debut effort, Can’t Get Enough. The Rides are what Stills considers “the blues band of my dreams” and the new LP is said to pick up where their first LP left off. Pierced Arrow was recorded with vintage analog machines as the band wanted to approach the album as if it was the ’70s. Most of the songs were written by axeslinger Shepherd and keyboardist Goldberg. Watch the lyric video for the single “Virtual World”:

Reproduced from the original masters recorded during the 14-day Woodland Studios sessions in Nashville with acclaimed producer Ethan Johns, his breakeout is also being repackaged with a DVD featuring never-before-scene footage of Adams’ solo acoustic show at the Mercury Lounge in New York City in October 2000.
