Following the 2018 demise of his previous outfit, Ultimate Painting, London-based singer/songwriter Jack Cooper wasted little time launching a new project, this time moving away from jangling guitar pop and into a more cerebral, folk-inspired territory. With his creative partner Will Young (Beak>, Moon Gangs), and a handful of co-conspirators including Woods drummer Aaron Neveu, Sunwatchers saxophonist Jeff Tobias, and in-demand session cellist Rupert Gillett, he formed Modern Nature, an exploratory ensemble that harkens back to eccentric '60s forebears like Pentangle and Fairport Convention, two progressive folk-based bands intent on taking British traditions somewhere new. Naming themselves after film director Derek Jarman's diaries about gardening, Modern Nature signed with Bella Union and recorded their four-song debut EP, Nature. Curiously structured and meandering in tone, Nature sounds very much like a band in self-discovery mode, testing their parameters and seeing what works. Opening track "Nature" is the closest Modern Nature ever get to straight-ahead rock music, pairing an angular electric guitar riff over a propulsive groove punctuated by Cooper's half-whispered incantations. With evocative lines like "mist hangs on the heath," the ethereal "Flats" drifts gently along on pillows of droning cello and saxophone, setting the table for the group's similarly arranged rendition of the traditional Irish ballad "Blackwaterside," a song made famous in the late '60s by Pentangle guitarist Bert Jansch. A lightly psychedelic jazz streak informs the entire affair thanks in part to Tobias' nimble improvisations, which go head to head with Gillett's agile cello work on the 11-minute closer "Supernature." It's a welcome direction for Cooper to take and while Modern Nature show plenty of promise on this relatively small serving, it seems like they would be most at home on a full-length release, stretching out and letting their whims carry them. ~ Timothy Monger

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.

Kraftwerk, 50 anni in anticipo

La band di musica elettronica più influente della storia, Kraftwerk è sempre stata 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.

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.
