Listening to Dark Undercoat, it's difficult to believe that Emily Jane White once fronted various college punk and metal bands. The frenetic energy that fuels both those genres is totally at odds with the incredibly languorous feel of this set, as White whiles away her time moodily musing, mostly accompanied only by her acoustic guitar or piano. Dark Undercoat, her debut, is awash in dark undercurrents, and tinged with a deeply affecting melancholy, somewhat reminiscent of Nick Drake, which Wainwright Hewlett's superb engineering and production enhances. The sound is underlit with a glowing warmth, the quiet atmospheres subtly acquiring surprising depths, while a sublime intimacy is spun around the entire set. White's dusky, lilting alto conjures up its own spell, as do the simple but artful arrangements. Guitar strumming songs like "Dagger" and "Time on Your Side" illustrate the artist's deep connections to the folk scene, but others have a western bend, foremost among them "Sleeping Dead." In contrast, the magnificent "Bessie Smith" and "Hole in the Middle" sing the blues. "Bessie Smith" and the title track make inspired use of cello, fabulous work from multi-instrumentalist Muir. Bass and drums intensify a number of songs, while White's concert piano skills are highlighted on a pair of tracks, with her supple guitar showcased across the entire set. The music is mesmerizing throughout, moody palettes over which the singer paints pictures of love and loss, and the detritus of dashed hopes and dreams: "a trail of ashes" left behind by soured romances. Like the Marlboro Man, White's men are strong and silent types, many "Wild Tigers" only half-tamed, a few straw men whose strong facades hide their own insecurities. The themes are universal, while her lyrics resonate strongly, abetted by a sprinkling of Biblical references. All told, an inspired album whose atmospheres smolder on long after the music ends. ~ Jo-Ann Greene

10 reines du folk

Une guitare acoustique. Parfois à peine plus. Et une voix unique... Le revival folk de ces dernières années est à l'origine de l’apparition de nouvelles chanteuses majeures et parfois singulières, qui rappellent leurs aînées qui ont irradié les 60’s et surtout les 70’s. Parmi ces reines du folk, certaines sont installées au panthéon, d’autres, aussi essentielles, restent des secrets bien gardés. Cette sélection (subjective) en a réuni dix.

Americana, l’Amérique par les racines

L’étiquette a beau sentir le coup marketing fumeux, l’americana synthétise pourtant bien depuis une vingtaine d’années cette fusion du rock, de la country, du blues et du rhythm’n’blues. Et comme dans toutes les grandes familles, on y croise à peu près tout le monde : la fille rebelle, l’oncle cultivé, le père agité, la cousine habitée…

Guy Clark, poète et troubadour

Il était vénéré par Johnny Cash et de nombreux autres mais resta dans l’ombre jusqu’à sa mort, il y a deux ans, en mai 2016. Mais qui était Guy Clark, immense songwriter texan, narrateur hors-pair et troubadour à la voix rocailleuse dont les compositions furent interprétées par toutes les pointures de la country et du folk ?
