It shouldn't surprise anyone that James McMurtry, son of novelist Larry "Lonesome Dove" McMurtry, continues his excellent storytelling on his 12th album. In another life, McMurtry could have been a straight poet, one prone like his dad to getting up and giving readings of his lyrical brilliance. While his father's fame has certainly assisted his career, this McMurtry has the music in him, a true folkie with rock and roll tendencies. The Texas troubadour's specialty is detailed miniatures, populated with flawed but finely drawn characters, some of whom clearly draw on incidents and characters from his own life.

On The Horses and The Hounds, McMurtry has assembled an A team of the great David Grissom (Joe Ely, John Mellencamp, Dixie Chicks) and Charlie Sexton, who's spent much of the last decade playing with Bob Dylan. The lyrical flourishes begin immediately in the travelogue opener where he moves from canola fields in Southern Alberta, through the suicide doors on his old, white Lincoln in Santa Cruz, to "Brooklyn before it went hipster." In "Jackie," about a doomed female trucker, he turns a discussion of everyday ground cover into gold with this choppy but musical couplet of Great Plains versification: "Half a section in the short grass at the foot of the plains/ Grows broomweed in the dry times, ragweed when it rains." The inevitable cowboy ode, "Vaquero," sung partially in Spanish, benefits from fellow Texan scion Bukka Allen (son of Terry) on accordion. While guitars move to the front of the mix in the title track, the road song "What's The Matter" where "Blood pressure's up, I gotta take pills/ If the food don't kill me, the alcohol will," is the album's bouncy, upbeat single. Fortunately, McMurtry's intricate tales of human emotional entanglement are so engrossing that the similar slow ballad-like tempos of everything here are almost unnoticeable. Producer Ross Hogarth whose extensive discography—much of it as an engineer—includes work with everyone from Céline Dion to Van Halen, brings a simple uncomplicated sound to the proceedings. McMurtry's personal and neverending story continues with style. © Robert Baird/Qobuz

Los Grandes Angulares...
Americana, las raíces de Norteamérica

Aunque esta etiqueta surgida por exigencias del marketing pueda resultar un tanto confusa, lo cierto es que Americana es el útil nombre que sirve para referirse desde hace dos décadas a la fusión de rock, country, blues y rhythm&blues. Y, como en las mejores familias, en este género hay lugar para todos: para la hija rebelde, el cuñado enterado, el padre alterado, la prima intensa, etc.

Guy Clark, poeta y trovador

Venerado por Johnny Cash y por muchos otros, permaneció prácticamente en la sombra hasta su muerte, hace dos años, en mayo de 2016. ¿Cuál fue la trayectoria de Guy Clark, inmenso songwriter tejano, retratista fuera de serie y trovador de gutural voz cuyas composiciones fueron interpretadas por los más grandes del country y el folk?

Merle Haggard, el chico malo del country

Alcohol, prisión, drogas y miseria. Merle Haggard, que practicó las cuatro cosas, pasó su vida cantando a los marginados y desprotegidos de América. Instigador del sonido Bakersfield, purificará la música country para hacer su discurso más provocador.
