Having already made a few records in the early '70s, Roche sisters Maggie and Terre -- along with younger sibling Suzzy -- resumed recording as the Roches in 1979. The group's mischievous and highly original folk blend of barbershop, doo wop, Celtic, and bluegrass styles found its watermark with this eponymous debut, which features the pithy, tongue-in-cheek lyrics of Maggie and Terre. Aided by bassist Tony Levin and guitarist Robert Fripp -- who also produced -- the trio ranges from the wry resume-in-song opener "We" to the impressionistically feminist closer "Pretty and High." In between, there's talk of family, work, boyfriends, travel, and married men, all enveloped in a mix of airy acoustic guitars, limber harmonies, and rotating vocal leads. Highlights include "The Train," "Hammond," and "The Troubles."

Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits: A Love-Hate Relationship

On 14 April 2018, Dire Straits were finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Even Mark Knopfler seemed touched by this honour, hoping to be handed the award by the likes of Bob Dylan or Eric Clapton. But in the end, Dire Straits moved into the pantheon of rockers without their star, which made for one of the saddest ceremonies in history. The absence was almost symbolic of the relationship between the lead singer and his group.

Johnny Cash Behind Bars

Two legendary live albums released at the end of the sixties gave Johnny Cash’s career a huge boost and turned him into an international star. They were two records were unlike any others: they were recorded in prison. But how did the Man in Black find himself in such an unusual concert hall?

Daniel Johnston, A Troubling, Troubled Icon

No one ever sounded like Daniel Johnston. The little known depressive artist found fame thanks to his peers’ recognition. He passed away on September 11th, 2019, at the age of 58; his discography has slowly become the symbol of naïve, lo-fi and hyper-emotional music. It’s never too late to (re)discover this bona fide underground genius, and his heartfelt, authentic music.
