Even as a serious-minded singer/songwriter, Cat Stevens never stopped being a pop singer at heart, and with Teaser and the Firecat he reconciled his philosophical interests with his pop instincts. Basically, Teaser's songs came in two modes: gentle ballads that usually found Stevens and second guitarist Alun Davies playing delicate lines over sensitive love lyrics, and up-tempo numbers on which the guitarists strummed away and thundering drums played in stop-start rhythms. There were also more exotic styles, such as the Greek-styled "Rubylove," with its twin bouzoukis and a verse sung in Greek, and "Tuesday's Dead," with its Caribbean feel. Stevens seemed to have worked out some of his big questions, to the point of wanting to proselytize on songs like "Changes IV" and "Peace Train," both stirring tunes in which he urged social and spiritual improvement. Meanwhile, his love songs had become simpler and more plaintive. And while there had always been a charming, childlike quality to some of his lyrics, there were songs here that worked as nursery rhymes, and these were among the album's most memorable tracks and its biggest hits: "Moonshadow" and "Morning Has Broken," the latter adapted from a hymn with words by English author Eleanor Farjeon. The overall result was an album that was musically more interesting than ever, but lyrically dumbed-down. Stevens continued to look for satisfaction in romance, despite its disappointment, but he found more fulfillment in a still-unspecified religious pursuit that he was ready to tout to others. And they were at least nominally ready to listen: the album produced three hit singles and just missed topping the charts. Tea for the Tillerman may have been the more impressive effort, but Teaser and the Firecat was the Cat Stevens album that gave more surface pleasures to more people, which in pop music is the name of the game.

Los Grandes Angulares...
Henry Mancini, el estilo

Sofisticación, humor, sensibilidad… son palabras habitualmente asociadas a la música de Henry Mancini. A los 23 años de su desaparición sigue siendo recordado como un compositor pop tan importante como influyente. Y ello se debe sin duda a que, más allá de las obras elegantes y ligeras por las que es especialmente admirado (Desayuno con diamantes, La Pantera rosa…), el artista supo mostrar al mismo tiempo la complejidad de su lenguaje sonoro en otras composiciones de carácter más atormentado.

Lhasa, el astro inolvidable

Tan solo tres álbumes en estudio, un directo y tres giras internacionales bastaron a Lhasa de Sela para dejar una huella imborrable en la historia de la música popular contemporánea. La llorona, The Living Road y Lhasa son trabajos tan diferentes como redondos que nos muestran un universo peculiar y al mismo tiempo reconocible, a medio camino entre el sueño y la realidad. Sus temas, elaborados a partir de claroscuros, nos hablan sinceramente de los sentimientos de una artista cuyo arte vocal, intimista, rebosante de emoción, establece con el oyente un pacto de complicidad. Por lo demás, su trayectoria vital puede leerse a manera de capítulos de una novela, sin que falten los ingredientes del mito ni los estremecimientos de los relatos más hermosos y conmovedores.

Sofia Coppola on Air

En su nuevo film, La seducción, Sofia Coppola cuenta de nuevo con la colaboración de Thomas Mars, cantante del grupo francés Phoenix, habitual en las películas de la realizadora. Una buena ocasión para revisitar algunos de los mejores pasajes musicales en la filmografía de la hija de Francis Ford, y en particular la banda sonora de culto de Las vírgenes suicidas, firmada por el conjunto versallés Air.
