Wise Up Ghost

Elvis Costello & The Roots

Chris Lackner

BIG PICTURE: It's the musical equivalent of brunch — the best of two delicious musical meals in one. Elvis Costello and The Roots team up for a brilliant new album — the result of a year's worth of experimental jam sessions on the set of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where The Roots are the house band. Couple this with news David Bowie has guest vocals on a new Arcade Fire song, and one can only hope this marks the beginning of other unlikely musical collaborations: Frank Black and Weezer, Tom Waits and Mumford & Sons, Snoop Dogg and Coldplay, Bob Dylan and the Backstreet Boys. Miley Cyrus and the Rolling Stones (if only to see the outrage sparked by Cyrus twerking Mick Jagger).

FORECAST: This collaboration — a literary rocker and the world's best live hip-hop band — has resulted in the best album for either Costello or The Roots in a long time. Wise up and give it a listen.
