The Mercury Prize-nominated debut album from Glaswegian composer/bedroom pop spell-caster Christopher Duncan, Architect is a lush and beguiling set of classical-infused dream pop that invokes names like Fleet Foxes, Sufjan Stevens, Brian Wilson, and the High Llamas. The son of two classical musicians and a graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Duncan, as the album title would imply, is well versed in the architecture of composition, but his scholarly gifts are punctuated by pure pop acumen. Duncan's Glasgow is awash with urban imagery, like ambulance taillights disappearing around rain-slicked corners, but musically the12-track LP seeks greener pastures, dabbling in everything from indie pop and post-rock to English folk and Tropicália. Many songs, including "Say," "Silence and Air," and "I'll Be Gone by Winter," the latter of which is a bittersweet, old-fashioned waltz that suggests Eugene McGuinness by way of Richard Hawley, seek refuge from the big city. For Duncan, the sea is always beckoning. That notion of the ocean as interminable is best reflected in the remarkable single "For," a sumptuous and altogether mesmerizing bit of audio chicanery that sounds infinitely more complex than its single loop structure would suggest. Duncan's bucolic longings suggest a steady diet of Nick Drake as well, but where Drake would seek refuge in the easy comforts of introversion, Duncan seems willing to not only engage with the world around him, but to challenge it as well. Architect is one of those rare albums that demand to be listened to in one sitting, and it not only sets an awfully high bar for home recordings, it makes for a truly auspicious debut.

Know your Lemmy

Il 24 dicembre 2017 Lemmy Kilmister avrebbe festeggiato i suoi 72 anni, di cui più di 40 a capo dei Motörhead, il gruppo rock’n’roll più rumoroso della storia. Un cancro fulminante ha avuto infine il sopravvento su colui che era diventato un’icona che si pensava immortale, tanto la sua scomparsa era stata diverse volte annunciata e poi smentita. I Motörhead, che si sono logicamente spenti con lui, avranno dunque attraversato quattro decenni con alti e bassi. E soprattutto molti malintesi, che avranno un impatto importante sulla potenza sonora sprigionata sul palco...

British blues boom, cronaca di una rivoluzione

Se Joe Bonamassa ritornò con British Blues Explosion, un anno dopo Blue And Lonesome dei Rolling Stones, fu perché il boom del blues inglese si rivelò essere qualcosa di più di una semplice moda... Più che una semplice tendenza musicale, l'interesse di una giovane generazione per le grandi icone del blues americano, ignorate nella loro terra, generò un'autentica rivoluzione guidata da tre principali agitatori: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck e Jimmy Page, considerati oltre la Manica, niente meno che la Santissima Trinità della storia del rock o della chitarra. Sebbene non fossero gli unici musicisti coinvolti, fu attraverso le loro rispettive carriere che si scoprì che il blues, lungi dall'essere una musica che aveva passato la sua data di scadenza, era come un salto verso altre dimensioni musicali che avrebbe permesso molteplici innovazioni.

J.J. Cale: l’eremita del blues

A più di cinque anni dalla sua scomparsa, non si può dimenticare quella fonte vitale di musica che è stato il lavoro di J.J. Cale. Con la sua fusione unica di blues, folk, country e jazz, quest'uomo venerato da Eric Clapton, che visse per un po' anche in un trailer-park, continua ad essere uno degli asceti più influenti del rock.
