Faithfull was still known primarily as a pop singer when she put out North Country Maid, but this is in fact very close to a pure folk album, with a bit of influence from pop, rock, blues, and jazz. Largely overlooked even by Faithfull fans, it's actually a quite respectable effort, and probably her best LP (other than greatest-hits compilations) from the time when her voice was still on the high side. Ably backed by sessionmen including guitarists Jon Mark and Jim Sullivan, she interprets mostly traditional material on this record, including "She Moved Through the Fair," "Wild Mountain Thyme," "Sally Free and Easy," and "Scarborough Fair." There are some mid-'60s covers too, though, including Donovan's "Sunny Goodge Street" and Tom Paxton's "Last Thing on My Mind." Sometimes, when the bass gets prominent and the arrangements swing, this isn't too far from early Pentangle, as unexpected as that comparison is. The use of sitar on "She Moved Through the Fair" and "Wild Mountain Thyme" is adventurous, and she sings pretty well throughout, with dignity and purity if not utmost imagination or grit. The 1990 CD reissue on Deram U.K. adds three worthwhile bonus tracks: "The Most of What Is Least" (from a 1965 EP) and alternate versions of "Come My Way" and "Mary Anne" (the originals of which had appeared on her 1965 album, Come My Way).

Marc Ribot, l’anti-guitar hero

Depuis une quarantaine d’années, le nom de Marc Ribot apparaît sur les pochettes d’albums signés Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso et tant d’autres. Et lorsqu’il ne prête pas sa guitare atypique aux plus grands, le New-Yorkais s’amuse, sous son nom, à démonter le rock, le jazz, le funk, la musique cubaine et tout ce qui passe sous ses doigts.

Interpol, fondu au noir

À l’aube des années 2000, à l’heure où le garage était roi, le quatuor new-yorkais devenu trio détonnait en ravivant le romantisme au noir d’un post-punk 80’s.

Nick Cave, mauvaise graine de star

Nick Cave et ses Bad Seeds restent l’une des aventures les plus prolifiques de l’ère postpunk. Dès la fin des années 80, le magnétisme caverneux du chanteur australien atteignait un certain paroxysme, entre reprises furibardes, ballades au piano et rock’n’roll en sueur. Au fil des ans, le Cave s’est fait de plus en plus crooner, entre Frank Sinatra punk et Johnny Cash austère...
