It isn't surprising that Lucinda Williams' level of craft takes time to assemble, but the six-year wait between Sweet Old World and its 1998 follow-up, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, still raised eyebrows. The delay stemmed both from label difficulties and Williams' meticulous perfectionism, the latter reportedly over a too-produced sound and her own vocals. Listening to the record, one can understand why both might have concerned Williams. Car Wheels is far and away her most produced album to date, which is something of a mixed blessing. Its surfaces are clean and contemporary, with something in the timbres of the instruments (especially the drums) sounding extremely typical of a late-'90s major-label roots-rock album. While that might subtly alter the timeless qualities of Williams' writing, there's also no denying that her sound is punchier and livelier. The production also throws Williams' idiosyncratic voice into sharp relief, to the point where it's noticeably separate from the band. As a result, every inflection and slight tonal alteration is captured, and it would hardly be surprising if Williams did obsess over those small details. But whether or not you miss the earthiness of Car Wheels' predecessors, it's ultimately the material that matters, and Williams' songwriting is as captivating as ever. Intentionally or not, the album's common thread seems to be its strongly grounded sense of place -- specifically, the Deep South, conveyed through images and numerous references to specific towns. Many songs are set, in some way, in the middle or aftermath of not-quite-resolved love affairs, as Williams meditates on the complexities of human passion. Even her simplest songs have more going on under the surface than their poetic structures might indicate. In the end, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road is Williams' third straight winner; although she might not be the most prolific songwriter of the '90s, she's certainly one of the most brilliant.

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.

Kraftwerk, 50 anni in anticipo

Kraftwerk, il gruppo di musica elettronica più influente della storia, fondato da Ralf Hütter e Florian Schneider (scomparso il 6 maggio 2020 a causa di un cancro), è sempre stato in anticipo sui tempi. Precursori sulle tecnologie, la composizione, le performance sceniche, i tedeschi hanno dimostrato al pubblico che le macchine sono anche strumenti capaci di generare emozioni, spianando la strada alla techno, alla new wave e persino all'hip-hop.

Americana, alle radici dell’America

Il nome saprà anche di trovata commerciale un po’ fumosa, ma il genere Americana designa da una ventina d’anni quel mix di rock, country, blues e rhythm&blues. E come in ogni grande famiglia che si rispetti, si ritrovano un po’ tutti i personaggi: la figlia ribelle, lo zio colto, il padre irrequieto, la cugina esaltata…
