I have to admit I've been down on Ryan Adams and the last few records he's put out. So much so that I apparently completely slept on his most recent release Ashes & Fire. Long story short, I went to see the new Judd Apatow movie, 'This Is 40' the other night and I found myself completely falling in love with Adams' music all over again thanks to their placement. The film & soundtrack feature two tracks from Adams, "Lucky Now" off of Ashes... which closes out the film, and "Shining Through the Dark" a reworked track that appeared before on a charity compilation. Catch him playing the latter track on a recent appearance on Conan O'Brien last week.
