The sophomore full-length album from Melanie Martinez, 2019's K-12, finds the arty pop singer offering yet more darkly emotive anthems centered on adolescence and growing up. Again at the center of the album is Martinez's alter ego "Cry Baby," the titular character introduced on her 2015 debut. As with that album, K-12 features songtitles inspired by school-age themes including "Show & Tell," "Nurse's Office," and "Wheels on the Bus," albeit with many of the tracks working as metaphors for more turbulent adult issues. For example, the lyrical and dreamy "Strawberry Shortcake" is both about going through puberty and struggling with the male gaze. Similarly, on "Show and Tell," Martinez references the time-honored kindergarten activity in order to dig deeper into the toxic love/hate relationship between artist and fan. She sings, "Harsh words if you don't get a pic with me/Buy and sell like I'm a product to society." Aiding Martinez with her highly conceptual pop sound is longtime associate producer/songwriter Michael Keenan, who also worked on Cry Baby. Also returning is Cry Baby alum One Love (aka Tim Sommers) for the moody "Drama Club." Musically speaking, K-12 has the same hip-hop and R&B underpinnings that Martinez favored on Cry Baby, with tracks like the aforementioned "Drama Club," "The Principle," and "Detention" showcasing her detached, periodically down-pitched babydoll vocals and a penchant for what sounds like midtempo xylophone and African finger-piano grooves. That said, it's also a more sophisticated production, with better hooks showcasing Martinez's growth as a songwriter. It's a sound that ably straddles the line between Lana Del Rey's disaffected noir style and Mike Posner's more confessional pop. Notably, the album also arrives in tandem with a colorfully eye-popping short film, written and directed by Martinez, that draws inspiration from her songs. While the album certainly works independently of the film, K-12 plays at a cinematically measured pace, perfect for both afterschool and afterhours listening. ~ Matt Collar

Los Grandes Angulares...
Y Jack White acudió al rescate del rock

Tanto en los años Whites Stripes como ahora en solitario, Jack White no ha dejado de cortocircuitar los modos del rock más trillado. Diez años después de «Seven Nation Army», este genio siempre envuelto en mil proyectos nos hace un vaticinio: el rock está de vuelta, y regresa con fuerza. Mientras tanto, no estará de más analizar el fenómeno en que se ha convertido White.

Neoclásico: un nuevo mundo en la frontera entre el electro y el clásico

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... En los últimos años, todos estos nombres tan de moda se han agrupado bajo la vasta e imprecisa etiqueta de «neoclásico». Pero, a decir verdad, este «escenario» se parece más a una banda heterogénea de inquietos artistas que mezclan instrumentos clásicos y producción electrónica –desde una supuesta conexión con los pioneros del minimalismo estadounidense… que deleitan los sentidos, y que abren perspectivas a ambos lados de su espectro musical.

Marc Ribot, el anti guitar-hero

Durante 35 años, el nombre de Marc Ribot ha aparecido en las portadas de los álbumes de Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso y otros 9758 músicos. Y cuando no presta su guitarra atípica a alguno de los grandes, el «Neoyorquino» se divierte, en su propio nombre, desmontando el rock, el jazz, el funk, la música cubana y todo lo que caiga en sus manos.
