The debut from English singer/songwriter Laura Groves (aka Blue Roses) draws more than a little from 1960s folk traditions, both British (Anne Briggs) and from across the pond (Joni Mitchell). Groves' earnest yet elusive wordplay, serpentine melodies, and minimal arrangements lithely follow the trail blazed by the current crop of postmillennial retro fairy tale crooners like Joanna Newsom, Tiny Vipers, and Laura Barrett, but her willingness to explore the more commercial side of the experimental/alternative folk movement may shield her from the "freak folk" tag so liberally applied to many of her contemporaries. Proficient on both guitar and piano, Groves is most effective when behind the latter, crafting luminous, pastoral ballads like "Greatest Thoughts," "I Wish I...," and "Imaginary Fights" that echo early Kate Bush -- the spooky, marimba-laced "Doubtful Comforts" is one of the album's highlights. Alternating between fingerpicked acoustic and electric, the remaining tracks are hardly deficient of introverted charm, but with the exception of the semi-propulsive "Rebecca," the pace is sluggish at best, resulting in a collection of songs best listened to in threes, or all at once with one's forehead pressed against the window waiting for the rain to pass.

Daniel Johnston, icône troublée et troublante

Personne ne sonne comme Daniel Johnston. Artiste dépressif et méconnu devenu culte grâce à la reconnaissance de ses pairs, l’Américain, mort le 11 septembre 2019 à l’âge de 58 ans, est le symbole d’une musique naïve, lo-fi mais débordant d’émotions. Il n’est pas trop tard pour (re)découvrir cet authentique génie underground qui ne rate jamais le cœur de l’auditeur.

Joni Mitchell, la période bleue

Chef-d’œuvre immaculé du folk des 70’s, ‘Blue’ fête ses 50 ans sans avoir pris une seule ride. Mais pourquoi ce quatrième album que la Canadienne a conçu comme un journal intime mis en musique fascine toujours autant les songwriters de la Terre entière ?

Nashville au féminin

Pas facile de jouer des coudes sur la scène de la machiste Music City, berceau de la country music, lorsqu’on est une femme. Au fil des ans, certaines ont tout de même réussi à faire bouger les lignes et les mentalités. Comme ces dix-là, pionnières et révolutionnaires ayant posé – et imposé – leurs santiags sur la table de Nashville.
