Sound CityReal to Reel (RCA)
Dave Grohl put the Foo Fighters on hiatus to film a documentary on L.A.'s Sound City Studios, recording genesis of many a classic album, including Nirvana's Nevermind. It needs a soundtrack. Rather than a collection of famed tracks recorded across Sound City's history, Grohl instead records 11 new original tunes with a number of the studio's clients, ranging from Stevie Nicks ("You Can't Fix This") and Paul McCartney ("Cut Me Some Slack") to Fear's Lee Ving ("Your Wife Is Calling") and Ricks Nielsen ("From Can to Can't") and Springfield ("The Man That Never Was"), collaborating with Grohl and various combinations of Foo Fighters. The result plays out surprisingly cohesive, sounding like a new Foo Fighters LP with special guests, or a nonmetal version of Grohl's Probot. The filmmaker's having fun, realizing another dream, and making something cool out of it. (8pm, Stubb's)
