Carole King's first studio album in over ten years, A Holiday Carole, opens on a familiar note with a light, jazzy take on Rodgers & Hammerstein's “My Favorite Things.” King's daughter Louise Goffin produced the album and co-wrote the three original pieces, which include the Latin-tinged “Christmas Paradise,” the free and easy “Christmas in the Air,” and the lovely closing ballad “New Year's Day,” and while they may not be as instantly familiar as “Carol of the Bells,” “Sleigh Ride,” or “Do You Hear What I Hear,” they blend in well amidst the yuletide standards. Fueled by King's laid-back delivery and precise diction, A Holiday Carole, which represents the first seasonal release from the pop legend, breezes by without a whole lot of pomp and circumstance, touching on multiple genres while remaining true to both the holiday spirit and the singer's distinctive cadence.

10 Queens of Folk

An acoustic guitar. Sometimes not much else. But always a unique voice… In recent years, the folk revival has produced some new major and exceptional female singers, just like their elders in the sixties, and particularly the seventies. Some of these Queens of folk have earnt their place in the Hall of Fame, while others remain equally essential hidden gems. This (subjective) selection features ten of the best.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.
