YONDER BOYS “Acid Folk”

A conferma di quanto sia ampio e variegato il panorama roots a livello globale, c’è il trio dei Yonder Boys con il loro distillato di suoni tra folk, country e bluegrass, spesso imprevedibile e sempre originale nell’approccio. Le loro complesse ed ispirate armonie vocali, la padronanza strumentale e le reminiscenze legate agli anni sessanta quando molti musicisti avvicinarono la tradizione alle tendenze psichedeliche tipiche del periodo, rendono la proposta di “Acid Folk”, debutto di un trio formato dall’australiano David Stewart Ingleton a banjo e voce, dall’americano Jason Serious alle chitarre e dal polistrumentista cileno Tomàs Peralta che si [...]

Kameron Marlowe Releases New Take On “Giving You Up” And “Folsom Prison Blues” For Spotify Singles

Columbia Nashville breakout rising star and 2021 Spotify Hot Country Artist to Watch Kameron Marlowe has released his inaugural Spotify Singles recording. Recorded in Nashville, Side A is a stripped-down, piano-driven rework of his self-penned debut release and heartbreak anthem, “Giving You Up.” Side B is an impassioned, bluesy cover of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues,” showing off Marlowe’s arena-ready powerhouse vocals, while putting a twist on the classic tune. “I chose to cover ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ because Johnny Cash is one of my all-time heroes. To me, he is the Godfather of country music, and I have always [...]

JAMES McMURTRY TO RELEASE THE HORSES AND THE HOUNDS,

James McMurtry to release 'The Horses and the Hounds,' first new full-length studio album in seven years, August 20th on New West Records. The Horses and the Hounds is a reunion of sorts.

McMurtry and Hogarth [...]

Jackson Michelson’s latest single – ‘Tip Jar’ (out now)

MCC/Curb Records recording artist Jackson Michelson lets music heal a broken heart on “Tip Jar,” out now. The single reveals the Corvallis, Oregon native doling out cash to keep the hits playing post-breakup, name-checking both Tom Petty and Bon Jovi in the second verse. In an attempt to hide a heartbreak from friends and erase old memories with his former flame, he turns the music up to 11 and takes a stranger out for a spin across the dance floor. Jackson Michelson is set to be one of the first US artists to return to the UK next month, scheduled [...]

5 – Pancho Villa invade gli Stati Uniti

Pancho Villa fu il protagonista dell’ultima invasione subita dagli Stati Uniti nella loro storia. Il 9 marzo 1916, un secolo dopo le operazioni anfibie inglesi a New York e New Orleans della guerra anglo-americana, le truppe villiste, al grido di “Morte ai gringos!”, attraversarono il confine e assaltarono la città di Columbus, in Texas. Villa nacque il 5 giugno 1878 al Rancho de Río Grande, vicino a San Juan del Río, nello stato di Durango. Il suo vero nome era Doroteo Arango Arámbula, ma se ne disfece quando ferì il proprietario terriero Agustín López Negrete, che aveva cercato [...]

On the road again

Con diciotto dischi d’oro e di platino, cinque Grammy Awards e il Premio Kennedy, Willie Nelson è un’autentica icona della musica contemporanea. L’aspetto più interessante della sua carriera di autore, cantante e chitarrista, però, è la capacità di rinnovarsi continuamente, il suo eclettismo, il coraggio di cambiare strada quando farlo diventa indispensabile per restare fedele a se stessi. Così sfidò il conservatorismo di Nashville con dischi spontanei, briosi, controcorrente e poi le trecce, la bandana e la sua amica Trigger, fidata vecchia chitarra acustica. "Mi rendo conto che la tempesta è appena iniziata. Ogni notte, nuvole d'un temporale [...]

Il country yodel di Jimmie Rodgers

Nacque a Meridian, Mississippi, nel 1897, e morì giovane, dopo una breve ma prolifica carriera discografica tranciata dalla tubercolosi, a soli trentacinque anni. La sua fu un'esistenza difficile, fatta di lavori pesanti, continui viaggi, malattia, privazioni e disagi familiari. A tredici anni era già scappato da casa due volte. Sua madre, Eliza, era morta quando lui ne aveva solo cinque anni e Jimmie era venuto su con dentro un’inquietudine ribelle e scaltrita. Aaron, il padre, gli trovò un primo impiego nelle ferrovie per cui lavorava, la Mobile and Ohio Railroad, e così provò a dargli un futuro. Dall'età [...]
