"Artists must grow to stay relevant" is a dictum Maria McKee has always taken to heart, never more so than in her brave, sweeping, operatic new album that chronicles her spiritual journey to "a new life." Most famous as the lead singer of the LA country rock band Lone Justice, McKee embraces her interest in the occult and comes out as "a pansexual, polyamorous, gender fluid dyke." McKee recently moved to London, reinvented her marriage to co-producer Jim Akin, hired a small orchestra and penned this ambitious, mostly successful series of classical-leaning pop arias that wrestle in grandiose lyrical style with making life-altering choices after the age of 50. The key to success here is McKee's never-stronger voice. With her heart obviously committed, this is easily some of the best singing of her entire career; the title track, first single "Effigy of Salt," and "I Never Asked" inspire tour de force vocal performances. Another highlight is the celebration of her new home, "Right Down to the Heart of London," where soaring vocals and dense lyrics that namecheck William Blake make for a folky baroque pop gem. McKee's songwriting—both the words and music—has always been a lesser known aspect of her musical gifts. She has become a master at writing what she can sing best. This also means if there's a flaw to La Vita Nuova, it's that these arrangements can sound too similar. Unchanging tempos and a paucity of percussion add to the sameness. Musical wobblings aside, McKee's faith and ardent, absolutely gorgeous singing gives wings to this devotional voyage: "And I have allowed my mind / autonomy to wanderingly stray/ Into fanaticism of a daring kind /And therefore never will I find it strange ("Page of Cups")." © Robert Baird / Qobuz

Neoclassica: un nuovo mondo ai confini dell’elettronica e della classica

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Da qualche anno tutti questi nomi alla moda sono stati raggruppati sotto la vasta ed eterogenea etichetta “neoclassica”. A dire il vero, questo “panorama” somiglia piuttosto ad una banda eterogenea di artisti indagatori, che mescolano strumenti classici e produzione elettronica – in connessione cosciente con i pionieri del minimalismo americano – che deliziano i sensi ed aprono nuove prospettive da entrambi i lati del loro spettro musicale.

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.

Obbiettivo la luna: The Dark Side Of The Moon

The Dark Side of the Moon, album-chiave dei Pink Floyd fu il risultato di un lungo processo creativo iniziato intorno al 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (il brano principale dell'omonimo album) fu, almeno per Nick Mason, il punto di partenza. L'album successivo, Ummagumma (1969), diede a ciascun membro della band l'opportunità di creare un brano solista, anche se avrebbero dovuto unire i loro talenti per fare davvero il jackpot. I Pink Floyd hanno continuato a cercare il disco perfetto con Meddle, un album che ha messo in evidenza le loro abilità in studio, e Atom Heart Mother, prima del tanto atteso nirvana con The Dark Side of the Moon. E la perfezione di quest'opera non è stata intaccata nel tempo, nemmeno a quarantacinque anni dalla sua uscita.
