Though the acoustic-minded U.K. indie pop group dates back to the '80s, the Lilac Time's tenth studio album, Return to Us, marks 20 years with the trio lineup of Stephen, Nick, and Claire (Worrall) Duffy. The follow-up to 2015's No Sad Songs, it was prompted by certain political trends in the intervening four years, during which, as bandleader Stephen Duffy put it, "the world went stupid." An agreeable, gently pastoral set, it presents nine tracks (eight songs and an instrumental) with a mind to reassure fans with not only its easygoing musical tone but sentiments like "Hey, you're not alone/Don't worry, I'm with you." Those words are from opener "(I'm A) Believer." A mid-tempo track with strummed acoustic guitars, accordion-like voices, mallet percussion, and a sing-songy chorus, it greets listeners with a metaphorical hand on the shoulder and an invitation to curl up in a comfortable seat, without skirting the issue at hand. The song even calls for revolution in brief, trippier passages. It's followed by the D-Day-inspired "March to the Docks," whose atmospheric pedal steel is a trait of much of the album. Elsewhere, the lively title track was written three days after the election of President Trump and plays off a prior speech by President Obama. (In Duffy's version, "If the song can change a theater/The song can change a town/And if the song can change a city...," and so on.). The stripped-down "The Bridge & Down" is an earnest, Dylan-inspired call to resist. Not all the songs here are politically charged, however: "The Needles" is a Christmas-themed love long, and the country-inflected "The Simple Things" remembers life with less technology. Regardless of track-specific inspirations, the tunes are melodic, warm, and restrained throughout Return to Us, a well-timed outing that serves as both an articulate acknowledgment and a calming diversion. ~ Marcy Donelson

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.

Mark Knopfler y Dire Straits, un amor difícil

El 14 de abril de 2018, los Dire Straits entraron en el Rock and Roll Hall of Fame y muchos fueron los que pensaron que era en el momento justo. Incluso Mark Knopfler parecía conmovido por este honor, esperando ser entronizado como Bob Dylan o Eric Clapton. Al final, Dire Straits entró en el panteón de los rockeros sin su estrella, que eludió una de las ceremonias más tristes de la historia. Fue como un símbolo de la relación que mantiene con su grupo.

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?
