IL (NUOVO) CANADA TRA ROCK E BLUES

Il Canada, musicalmente parlando, si è distinto nelle ultime decadi come luogo in cui i suoni americani legati alle radici hanno subito un trattamento fresco, vibrante e personale. Sia quando si parla di country e folk, di pop o di blues e rock, molti sono i musicisti che hanno lasciato la loro impronta caratterizzata da talento e passione dando vita ad una scena interessantissima anche se spesso limitata come notorietà ai pur ampi confini geografici canadesi. In quest’occasione ci occuperemo di quattro recenti uscite discografiche, di quattro belle realtà che hanno in comune l’amore per il blues, per [...]

Town Mountain – new single ‘Lines In The Levee’ out now

North Carolina band Town Mountain has signed with New West Records and will release their new album Lines in the Levee on October 7th, 2022, featuring the first single and title track, out now. The 11-song collection was produced, engineered, and mixed by the multiple GRAMMY Award-nominated Justin Francis (Kacey Musgraves, Orville Peck, Anti-Flag) at Ronnie’s Place in Nashville, TN. Town Mountain is the sum of all of their vast and intricate influences — this bastion of alt-country rebellion and honky-tonk attitude pushed through the hardscrabble Southern Appalachian lens of their origin. Lines in the Levee follows 2018’s acclaimed New Freedom Blues and is the first to feature [...]

I Got A Car ( Cars & Country Music)

I veicoli hanno sempre fornito grande ispirazioni alla country music, trattori, camion, pickup, ma soprattutto le auto. Veloci o malconce, nuove o vecchie, a volte sexy come la bruna che siede nella corvette di George Jones (The One I Loved Back Then), a volte simbolo di ribellione come le cadillac di Dwight Yoakam ("Guitars, Cadillacs"). La ragione dell'enorme presenza di testi dedicati alle quattro ruote è dovuta alla storia socio-economica americana. L'auto facilitava lo spostamento, quindi il commercio e il consumo, l'interazione tra mondo agricolo e centri urbani, soprattutto permetteva ai ragazzi indipendenza e avventure come in "I [...]

Golden Guitar and CMC Award Winner - Christie Lamb - releases her brand new single “Three Chords And A Woman’s Truth”, on Friday 8th July 2022.Co-written in Nashville by Christie with Jonathan English and Victoria Banks, the idea behind the song came from a brainstorming session on the plane trip over to the US. “I was thinking about my truth and all of my influences over the years. I wanted this song to combine my life story with all queens of country that I grew up listening to like Dolly, Tammy and Loretta. My teenage years were influenced by Shania, Carrie and Gretchen, along [...]

Randy C Moore-Luckenbach

On the heels of his highly acclaimed latest release “Lufkin” and his recent induction into the Euro Academy Of Country Music, the ever prolific Randy C Moore is back with the second chapter of his Texas saga. Just like a cinematic crescendo, where Lufkin was a lighter and more upbeat, “Luckenbach” lets us into the rougher and more rugged side of our country music hero. From deep and more reflective songs like “Jericho” and “Undertaker” to welcoming the ghosts of the past of such lauded idols of both stage and song in “James Dean Dream” and “Before Elvis”; [...]

HANNAH READ & MICHAEL STARKEY “Cros The Rolling Water”

Ascoltare questo disco è come fare un viaggio temporale ancorchè geografico toccando entrambi i lati dell’Atlantico, scavando nel profondo le radici del suono old-time e dei suoi legami ancestrali con la tradizione scozzese. Dalle Highlands agli Appalachi, da Edinburgo a New York, Hannah Read e Michael Starkey danno l’esatta misura di quanto prezioso sia stato l’apporto degli immigrati dalle isole britanniche (e dall’Irlanda) allo sviluppo autoctono della musica che, dopo lungo tempo, è arrivata a noi nelle forme più svariate, toccando bluegrass, country music e naturalmente old-time. Hannah Read è una apprezzata fiddler scozzese con base a Brooklyn, [...]

MIKE STEVENS “Breathe In The World Breathe Out Music”

Nonostante una cover non particolarmente invitante, fedele al motto: “non puoi giudicare il libro dalla copertina’, l’album dell’harmonica wizard canadese Mike Stevens è un godibile viaggio sonoro attraverso i suoni roots, dando spazio a country music, blues, bluegrass e cenni caraibici e afro. Infaticabile e sornione, il pluripremiato armonicista è qui affiancato da alcuni cantanti che rendono con le loro performances tutto più godibile, alternando i molti strumentali a momenti più legati alla ‘forma canzone’ più variegata. L’inizio è comunque un po’ in sordina con una piacevole “Like A Little Bird” affidata alla voce di Polly Harris che [...]
