Amy Macdonald herself is a curious thing, an adult alternative singer/songwriter operating in a netherworld between indie and the mainstream. Naturally, she edges toward the mainstream -- the polished production has a way of sanding down any edges -- but her throaty growl gives this a heart unruly enough to prevent A Curious Thing from flowing too easily. Subtract Macdonald’s passionate vocals from the equation and A Curious Thing flows plenty easily, its surfaces gleaming with precision and its melodies sweetly lilting whether it’s a ballad or an understated folk stomp. If the production is the clearest signal that Macdonald is gunning for a larger crossover audience with her second album, her songs also show some signs of a swift sophomore sequel -- she writes about her brushes with fame just a bit too often and bluntly, an affectation that doesn’t wear well no matter how well-executed the music is. These acknowledgments of Macdonald’s burgeoning European fame hinder A Curious Thing but don’t detract from its essential appeal as soft and shiny AAA pop with a bit of a thumping heart.

Marc Ribot, l'antieroe della chitarra

Per 35 anni, il nome di Marc Ribot è apparso sulle copertine di album firmati da Tom Waits, Vinicio Capossela, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso e una miriade di altri musicisti. E quando non presta la sua atipica chitarra ai più grandi, il newyorkese si diverte a smontare rock, jazz, funk, musica cubana e tutto ciò che gli capita a tiro.

Il jazz del nord, terre di fusione (I)

La pulizia del suono, il dialogo interpretativo e l'esportazione di suoni autoctoni hanno fatto dei paesi nordici il paradiso del jazz europeo. Gli estremi che contraddistinguono la musica scandinava hanno definito i nuovi limiti dell'improvvisazione: Soren Bebe, Esbjörn Svensson o Jan Garbarek sono alcuni dei talenti ormai affermatisi sulla scena internazionale.

Neoclassica: un nuovo mondo ai confini dell’elettronica e della classica

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Da qualche anno tutti questi nomi alla moda sono stati raggruppati sotto la vasta ed eterogenea etichetta “neoclassica”. A dire il vero, questo “panorama” somiglia piuttosto ad una banda eterogenea di artisti indagatori, che mescolano strumenti classici e produzione elettronica – in connessione cosciente con i pionieri del minimalismo americano – che deliziano i sensi ed aprono nuove prospettive da entrambi i lati del loro spettro musicale.
