Todd Rundgren: 'State'

In spite of a long, significant career, Todd Rundgren’s greatest hit has been his talent as a producer (an eclectic and influential list that includes names like New York Dolls, Patti Smith, and XTC). In fact, he’s one of very few people on the planet who can truly self-produce, but he hadn’t had a solo album since 2008’s Arena. Now Rundgren’s back with a totally updated version of himself: the electro-heavy songs were recorded using Propellerhead Reason software (bye bye ProTools), but they’re perfectly playable by a live band, which is exactly while he’ll do on tour. A mandatory listen for any wannabe producer.
