Elvis Costello and the Impostors
The Delivery Man
(Lost Highway)
While Elvis Costello is still dabbling in “serious” music- making—writing for Diana Krall and the symphony—it’s good to see he hasn’t forgotten how to kick a lick around. Here Costello is in top form, firing off rollicking blues and country-tinged jams. “Button My Lip” and “Bedlam” are exactly what fans crave whenever he strays from our expectations. Not completely perfect, but leaves you wishing he would keep putting out music like this.
