Luka Bloom has a well-deserved reputation as one of Ireland's most gifted singer/songwriters, but he has also ranked among the most gifted cover artists in contemporary music. Bloom's independently released fifth album, Keeper of the Flame, is the first to focus exclusively on the singer's remarkable interpretive skills. Bloom's covers avoid the treacherous pitfalls of unimaginative imitation on one side and obnoxious desecration on the other. He also demonstrates the impressive breadth of his musical tastes. Among the featured songwriters are folk giants Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell, rock supergroups U2, Radiohead, and the Cure, reggae king Bob Marley, and even ABBA. Despite the fact that many of these songs were written by artists whose outlooks tend to be considerably darker than Bloom's, Keeper of the Flame is every bit as optimistic, mellow, and romantic as the singer's self-penned efforts. In some cases, this can be attributed to the song selection; "In Between Days" has to be one of the cheeriest songs Robert Smith has ever written, and "Make You Feel My Love" is so gentle and direct that it's almost hard to believe it was composed by Dylan and not Bloom. Radiohead's "No Surprises" is the only track that seems awkward in these benevolent surroundings. Thom Yorke's gorgeous melody works well in the stripped-down arrangement, but Bloom's sincere reading extracts nearly all of the song's acidic undertones. Nevertheless, it is the earnest warmth of Bloom's vocals (gracefully backed with light Celtic instrumentation) that holds this collection together so beautifully. The Australian edition of Keeper of the Flame includes a bonus disc with five live tracks -- a significant addition since it represents the first officially sanctioned concert release by an artist with a reputation for brilliant live performances. ~ Evan Cater

Woodstock, 50 ans après

Woodstock n’était pas le premier rassemblement dédié à la musique. A l’époque, Newport était déjà un rendez-vous régulier pour les amateurs de ce nouveau rock & folk qui inondait la jeunesse américaine – et d’ailleurs. Et les festivals de Monterey (Californie) ou l’Île de Wight (Royaume-Uni) avaient enflammé les deux étés précédents. Mais Woodstock, avec son côté sauvage et la foule d’artistes mythiques qui y ont défilé, fut bien le plus marquant d’entre tous. Si bien qu’un demi-siècle plus tard, on en parle encore avec les yeux qui brillent.

Americana, l’Amérique par les racines

L’étiquette a beau sentir le coup marketing fumeux, l’americana synthétise pourtant bien depuis une vingtaine d’années cette fusion du rock, de la country, du blues et du rhythm’n’blues. Et comme dans toutes les grandes familles, on y croise à peu près tout le monde : la fille rebelle, l’oncle cultivé, le père agité, la cousine habitée…

Johnny Cash derrière les barreaux

Grâce à deux albums live entrés dans la légende, Johnny Cash a relancé sa carrière à la fin des 60’s, devenant une véritable superstar. Deux disques pas comme les autres car enregistrés en prison. Mais comment l’Homme en noir s’est-il retrouvé dans une salle de concert aussi inhabituelle ?
