An age ago, major labels signed artists knowing it would take three, four, or even five records before she or he matured sufficiently to build a a dedicated audience. Some labels even signed "prestige artists," those who wouldn't necessarily make boatloads of cash, but their presence on one's roster would attract those who would. These days, the expectations for someone to deliver out of the gate are ridiculous. Michael Kiwanuka is the promising British singer/songwriter who won the BBC Sound of 2012 poll. Home Again is his full-length debut. From the front cover you can see -- then hear -- how everything about this album and Kiwanuka's image is laser-focused on the retro pop and soul vibe that saturates his country's music scene. The Bees' Paul Butler produced all but one track here. A throwback approach is his signature and, considering what Polydor wanted, may actually seem warranted given Kiwanuka's wise-beyond-his-years singing voice and songwriting style. There are very bright moments in this mesh of organic sounds (that are occasionally embellished -- very slightly -- by Moogs). Kiwanuka and Butler play an astonishing array of instruments here, and are ably assisted by select session players elsewhere. Standouts include the opening "Tell Me a Tale," the set's strongest cut. Kiwanuka's voice resembles Terry Callier's closely enough to warrant Butler virtually aping Charles Stepney's production style. "Bones," with its combination of doo wop backing chorus, brushed hi-hats, and jazzy guitar vamp, finds Kiwanuka in fine yet contrasting world-weary voice. The blues in "Worry Walks Beside Me" are underscored by a shimmering B-3 just behind a hazy electric guitar and stacked backing vocals. The title track commences with a fingerpicked acoustic guitar, but a Rhodes piano, multi-tracked cellos, and even a doubling of Kiwanuka's vocal brings us into contemporary indie terrain. But there are problems. Butler's attempt at making a record sound vintage paints by the numbers so carefully that he never gets below a song's surface -- despite the emotional intensity in Kiwanuka's voice. Also, while Kiwanuka is extremely talented, his songwriting needs work; some tunes are weighed down by clunky melodic or clumsy lyric turns. Despite difficulties, Home Again is a promising debut by an artist who will no doubt deliver big if developed properly. ~ Thom Jurek

Soul Music, una mirada a lo retro

Desde principios de 2010, muchas voces han resucitado el soul de los años sesenta y setenta a golpe de álbumes grabados «a la antigua». Con Amy Winehouse, Leon Bridges, Sharon Jones, Michael Kiwanuka y Curtis Harding, el groove vintage tiene un regreso resplandeciente.

Sonido Filadelfia, funk con pajarita

¡No estaba solo la Motown! ¡Ni la Stax! Filadelfia aportó una tercera pata al soul, tan característica como original. Impulsado por el dúo compuesto por Kenny Gamble y Leon Huff, el Sonido Filadelfia, precursor de la disco music, puso en danza a Estados Unidos a comienzos de los 70, sumergiendo a sus seguidores en un delirio de seda y champán.

Motown en 10 álbumes

El sello fundado por Berry Gordy cumple 60 años. Máxima referencia en materia de pop soul, fue una increíble fábrica de éxitos para Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Rick James y muchos otros. Motown comenzó su existencia gracias a sus singles, el formato más popular de la época. Pero a partir de 1965, se adapta a la llegada del álbum, el viejo LP (33 rpm) que transformará las carreras de algunos artistas de la casa y al propio sello en sí, que se autodefinirá como «el sonido de la joven América».
