Album of the Day
Something For Everybody
On this day in 2010, Devo made a remarkable comeback with SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY, the first studio album from the New Wave pioneers in two decades. Released on Warner Bros., which had originally launched the group to fame, the collection's dozen originals were as sharp and memorable as ever; bassist Gerald Casale (who co-wrote the bulk of the album along with keyboardist Mark Mothersbaugh) went so far as to call it "the best record that we'd ever done.” Songs including “Fresh,” “What We Do” and "Don't Shoot (I'm A Man)" pair the quintet's famously prescient satire with energetic performances goosed on by a production team including Santigold and Greg Kurstin of Bird & the Bee. The final Devo album to feature co-founder Bob Casale, SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY is a strong return to form that both longtime fans and newcomers to the band are sure to enjoy.
