Though the acoustic-minded U.K. indie pop group dates back to the '80s, the Lilac Time's tenth studio album, Return to Us, marks 20 years with the trio lineup of Stephen, Nick, and Claire (Worrall) Duffy. The follow-up to 2015's No Sad Songs, it was prompted by certain political trends in the intervening four years, during which, as bandleader Stephen Duffy put it, "the world went stupid." An agreeable, gently pastoral set, it presents nine tracks (eight songs and an instrumental) with a mind to reassure fans with not only its easygoing musical tone but sentiments like "Hey, you're not alone/Don't worry, I'm with you." Those words are from opener "(I'm A) Believer." A mid-tempo track with strummed acoustic guitars, accordion-like voices, mallet percussion, and a sing-songy chorus, it greets listeners with a metaphorical hand on the shoulder and an invitation to curl up in a comfortable seat, without skirting the issue at hand. The song even calls for revolution in brief, trippier passages. It's followed by the D-Day-inspired "March to the Docks," whose atmospheric pedal steel is a trait of much of the album. Elsewhere, the lively title track was written three days after the election of President Trump and plays off a prior speech by President Obama. (In Duffy's version, "If the song can change a theater/The song can change a town/And if the song can change a city...," and so on.). The stripped-down "The Bridge & Down" is an earnest, Dylan-inspired call to resist. Not all the songs here are politically charged, however: "The Needles" is a Christmas-themed love long, and the country-inflected "The Simple Things" remembers life with less technology. Regardless of track-specific inspirations, the tunes are melodic, warm, and restrained throughout Return to Us, a well-timed outing that serves as both an articulate acknowledgment and a calming diversion. ~ Marcy Donelson

Guy Clark, poeta e trovatore

Venerato da Johnny Cash e molti altri ma rimasto nell’ombra fino alla morte, avvenuta due anni fa, nel maggio 2016. Chi era Guy Clark, immenso compositore texano, narratore senza uguali e trovatore dalla voce roca che ha composto brani interpretati da tutti i grandi del country e del folk?

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…

Mark Knopfler e Dire Straits, un amore difficile

Il 14 aprile 2018, i Dire Straits facevano il loro ingresso nella Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ed erano in parecchi a pensare che fosse il momento dell’ «ora o mai più». Perfino Mark Knopfler sembrava toccato da quest’onore, nella speranza di essere premiato da Bob Dylan o Eric Clapton. Alla fine, i Dire Straits sono entrati nel pantheon dei rocker senza la loro star, che ha disertato una cerimonia tra le più tristi della storia. Quasi un simbolo del rapporto tra lui e il suo gruppo.
