Butch Walker has been toiling away somewhere just outside the spotlight of rock & roll for the better part of two decades, eventually carving out a curious niche for himself. Opportunities came and went beginning with SouthGang, a metal band in the time of grunge, then running through the Marvelous 3, whose 1999 hit "Freak of the Week" showed Walker had a commercial ear. He traded upon that skill, working behind the scenes as a collaborative songwriter as he cranked out his own records, establishing enough connections to actually get him placed on the 2008 reality show competition Rock Star: Supernova, all of which didn't do much in terms of getting him another hit of his own. Walker somewhat retreated from the radio game in 2010 when he formed the Americana-ish band the Black Widows, but 2014's Afraid of Ghosts takes this direction even further. Leaving behind the Black Widows but gaining a conspirator in Ryan Adams, Walker essentially designs Afraid of Ghosts as an homage to its producer. Adams set up shop in his PAX AM studios and directed Walker through a sleepy, sepia-toned collection of tastefully rustic ruminations. It sounds more like an old-fashioned Adams record, one that alternately recalls Heartbreaker and Love Is Hell, than 2014's unapologetically glossy Ryan Adams and, pro that he is, Walker's craft is sturdy too; there are strong bones underneath the moody surface, songs that emphasize his skill at construction more than melody. As it somewhat deemphasizes Walker's way with big hooks -- the very thing that made him an in-demand session man -- Afraid of Ghosts isn't as immediate as some of his other records, but it will suit the needs of anybody craving a record that sounds like Ryan Adams used to make them back in the day.

Jack White al salvataggio del rock

Dagli White Stripes alla svolta come solista, Jack White ha suonato la campana a morto di un rock ormai andato a male. Dieci anni dopo «Seven Nation Army», il genio dai mille progetti profetizza che la riscossa del rock sta arrivando in forza. Nell’attesa, una retrospettiva sul fenomeno White.

E i Nirvana uccisero il rock ‘n’ roll

Trentadue anni fa nascevano i Nirvana: la dirotta punk più inattesa del XX secolo. Una carriera stellare, hits internazionali, orde di fan ed un tragico epilogo per questo fenomeno mondiale. E se la band di Kurt Cobain fosse l’ultima nella storia del rock? Il fenomeno di genere definitivo, se non il suo ultimo mito.

Soul Music, uno sguardo al passato

Negli ultimi anni, dopo il 2010, parecchie voci fanno rivivere il soul degli anni ’60 e ’70 a colpi di album registrati «alla vecchia maniera». Con Amy Winehouse, Leon Bridges, Sharon Jones, Michael Kiwanuka e Curtis Harding, il groove vintage ha il suo ritorno di fiamma.
