As its title suggests, Cover Two is the second collection of covers from Joan as Police Woman's Joan Wasser (her first, 2009's Cover, was initially sold only at her shows and on her website). Considering how versatile and distinctive Wasser's own music is, it's not surprising that she's skilled at putting her own stamp on the work of widely different musicians. Even Cover Two's cover is a rendition of sorts, channeling Loverboy's Get Lucky and its iconic red leather jumpsuit. But what could be just a karaoke lark is much more in Wasser's hands: Cover Two is musically nimble and reflects a songwriter's appreciation of other songwriters. As on Cover, Wasser samples from an eclectic array of artists. She begins Cover Two with the challenge of reinterpreting Prince's "Kiss," transforming the original's sudden flirtation into sultry, slow-burning foreplay that turns the line "women, not girls, rule my world" into a mantra. Later, she closes the album with a breezy vocal pop arrangement of Rizzo's lament "There Are Worse Things I Could Do" from the musical Grease and a graceful, piano-driven interpretation of Gil Scott-Heron's "Running." In between, Cover Two's highlights include a cozy version of the Strokes' '60s soul-pop homage "Under Control'' where her voice dances over its caressing melody, and a minimalist reading of Michael McDonald's "Keep Forgetting" that showcases all the nuances of her singing. On "Out of Time," she reimagines one of Blur's sci-fi ballads into something that could've appeared on Tapestry. By contrast, she focuses on her music's experimental side on "Not the Way," setting Cass McCombs' searching lyrics to meditative drones and saxophones. As she revisits some of her favorite songs on Cover Two, Wasser brings out the best in her own music.

Lhasa, la stella indimenticabile

Con soli tre album in studio, un live e tre tournée internazionali, Lhasa de Sela ha lasciato una traccia unica nella storia della musica popolare contemporanea. La Llorona, The Living Road e Lhasa sono delle opere distinte e mature che rivelano un universo strano ma familiare, a metà strada tra il sogno e la realtà. Queste canzoni chiaro-scure sono caratterizzate da dei sentimenti sinceri di un’artista il cui canto a fior di pelle propone un patto di intima complicità con colui che l’ascolta. Nella vita di Lhasa de Sela vi sono tutti gli ingredienti di una leggenda, le tappe di un romanzo e le emozioni di una storia bella ed emozionante.

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…

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.
