After creating a nearly perfect debut album, Kate & Anna McGarrigle had the unenviable task of trying to make lighting strike in the same place a second time, and on 1977's Dancer with Bruised Knees, the sisters seemed to be making a very deliberate effort to try something that felt different while still reflecting their very distinct personality. And for the most part, they succeeded; Dancer with Bruised Knees is more willfully idiosyncratic than the McGarrigles first LP, with the same blend of lovely, folky melodies and all but flawless harmonies alongside a set of songs that build on the charming quirks of their first effort. The Quebec-born sisters had recorded one song in French on their first album, and they tripled that on Dancer, with two traditional Canadian folk numbers and one original, anticipating the beauty of their sublime 1980 effort The French Record; while the vocals and arrangements were inarguably lovely, they certainly made it a tougher album to embrace for the average American (or even Canadian) listener. And the McGarrigles' sly humor plays a larger role on this album, with the surreal tale of the title tune, the tongue-in-cheek celebration of "Southern Boys" ("Their breath in your ear is as soft as the cotton/Whether they're wooing or whispering the latest racist joke"), and the tart familial rivalry of "First Born." But if it takes longer for Dancer with Bruised Knees to sink in, it eventually reveals itself as smart, beautifully crafted, and delightful, like nearly everything in the McGarrigles' catalog, and the production by Joe Boyd and Greg Prestopino is subtle and sublime, as are the performances of the top-notch studio band. The McGarrigles were never afraid to let their eccentricities show, and they give them room to explore on Dancer with Bruised Knees, but the finished product is still beautiful, heartfelt, and satisfying. ~ Mark Deming

Outlaw country : révolte à Nashville

Au début des années 70, un gang de renégats envoie valdinguer la country de Nashville, ses codes, son diktat, ses productions lisses et ses clichés. Emmenée par Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson et quelques autres sauvages aux cheveux longs, cette révolte outlaw insuffle un esprit rock’n’roll dans un genre devenu conservateur.

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.

Woodstock, 50 ans après

Woodstock n’était pas le premier rassemblement dédié à la musique. A l’époque, Newport était déjà un rendez-vous régulier pour les amateurs de ce nouveau rock & folk qui inondait la jeunesse américaine – et d’ailleurs. Et les festivals de Monterey (Californie) ou l’Île de Wight (Royaume-Uni) avaient enflammé les deux étés précédents. Mais Woodstock, avec son côté sauvage et la foule d’artistes mythiques qui y ont défilé, fut bien le plus marquant d’entre tous. Si bien qu’un demi-siècle plus tard, on en parle encore avec les yeux qui brillent.
