All it takes is a few seconds into Realism’s familiar first track (the warm, wily, and weary "You Must Be out of Your Mind") to jump to the conclusion that Magnetic Fields mastermind Stephin Merritt has simply run out of musical motifs with which to embed his seemingly endless supply of biting, bittersweet lyrics. Happily, that’s not the case, as the remaining 12 songs on Realism show significant musical growth for one of pop music’s greatest corner bar-, heartbreak-, and sarcasm-obsessed napkin poets. The antithesis of 2008’s noisy Distortion, Realism revels in folk music in a way that hasn’t appeared on a Magnetic Fields album since 1990’s Distant Plastic Trees. The songs sound just like their titles would suggest, with "We Are Having a Hootenanny" doing just that, "The Doll’s Tea Party" conjuring up images of pastoral English gardens, and "Seduced and Abandoned" suggesting the wee hours of a Tin Pan Alley cabaret. Merritt, who wields a voice that has grown from that of a disheartened, mumbling wallflower to a classy, full-throated baritone, peppers each tune (as well as those sung by the lovely Claudia Gonson) with the usual witticisms (“I want you crawling back to me/Down on your knees/Like an appendectomy”), but there’s an elegance to his prose this time around that suggests there's not only a musical sea change at work. By far his most listenable and fully realized work since 1999’s mammoth 69 Love Songs, Realism feels slight because it is. It’s hard to hear someone so adept with a poison pen preen instead of brood, but it’s also rewarding. In the end, longtime fans will want to go back to the opening cut and seek out the comfort of those familiar first three chords that, like a seasoned bluesman with his E to A to B, have become synonymous with their creator, but hopefully, they’ll decide to take another trip through the countryside, soak in some much needed sun, and let bygones be bygones.

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.

Y The Cure se pasó a los remixes...

The Cure reeditan en Deluxe Edition “Mixed Up”, su álbum de remixes publicado en 1990. Un ovni sonoro del que se sentía enormemente satisfecho su líder, Robert Smith, como expresaba en esta entrevista realizada por entonces.

Tom Waits, los años de Asylum

Antes de convertirse en una suerte de Howlin’Wolf, punk de cabaret el personaje de Tom Waits surgirá bajo la forma de un compositor obsesionado con el jazz, las melodías de Broadway y la Generación Beat de Kerouac. Entre 1973 y 1980, el californiano grabó para el sello Asylum seis álbumes de estudio y uno en vivo, recientemente reeditado y remasterizado en Hi-Res 24-Bit. Una vuelta a los inicios tan caóticos como estimulantes de los más seductores vagabundos del Dharma.
