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.

Henry Mancini, il più stiloso

Sofisticata, ironica, sensibile… Sono questi gli aggettivi spesso usati per descrivere la musica di Henry Mancini, considerato ancora oggi, a 23 anni dalla sua scomparsa, uno dei compositori pop più grandi e più influenti di sempre. Probabilmente perché accanto alle opere patinate e leggere a cui deve la sua reputazione (Colazione da Tiffany, La Pantera Rosa…), ha saputo mostrare anche la complessità del suo linguaggio attraverso composizioni più tormentate.

Rotta verso Capo Verde

Dopo che i portoghesi si sono annessi questo gruppo di isole deserte, nel quindicesimo secolo, con l’intenzione di farne un centro di smistamento degli schiavi, le popolazioni nere e portoghesi vi si sono mescolate fino a dar vita a una lingua e a una musica inedite, e tra l’altro ciascuna isola ha sviluppato uno stile caratteristico, trasformando i suoli aridi di Capo Verde in fonte inesauribile di talenti.

Pedro Almodóvar in the groove

PresPedro Almodóvar ha sempre attribuito un ruolo fondamentale alla musica dei suoi film, che sia attraverso la scelta di brani preesistenti o di composizioni originali. Riprendendo la battuta di uno dei suoi primi film, egli conferma dunque che «è la musica a sostenere la verità sulla vita».
