The self-titled debut album from the Soft Cavalry (the duo of Slowdive's Rachel Goswell and her husband, Steve Clarke) is a testament to the power of love. Prior to meeting Goswell on Slowdive's 2014 reunion tour, Clarke had played in several bands and worked as a tour manager for many others, but never felt confident enough to share his own music with the world. On The Soft Cavalry's songs, he and Goswell (as well as keyboardist Jesse Chandler, guitarist Tom Livermore, drummer Stuart Wilkinson, and Clarke's brother Michael, who produced the album) trace his journey from doubt and loneliness to creativity and happiness. Though the Soft Cavalry is a collaboration, Clarke's voice dominates the album. While Goswell fans might be disappointed she doesn't take a more central role, her presence is everywhere on The Soft Cavalry. She's most prominent on "Passerby," an airy yet haunting song that's a showcase for her ever-gorgeous vocals and a tribute to just how much she inspires Clarke. As the album unfolds, it becomes even clearer that the Soft Cavalry isn't just an extension of Slowdive. Along with his relationship with Goswell, Clarke draws from his years of artistic and emotional paralysis, and many of The Soft Cavalry's songs are portraits of someone at a crossroads. Clarke and Goswell set these stories to introspective melodies and widescreen arrangements -- a classic dream pop approach that they put their own stamp on with "Dive," where the song's haze builds to a steep climax as Clarke summons the courage to take a leap of faith. Elsewhere, the xx-like drum machines and serpentine guitars of "Bulletproof" and the sunny jangle of "Never Be Without You" -- which calls to mind Grandaddy or Goswell's post-Slowdive project, Mojave 3 -- can do more than the expected shoegaze and dream pop. The Soft Cavalry's moods are just as complex. Some of the most striking, and relatable, moments occur when Clarke lets uncertainty creep into his songs: the way his doubt ratchets up the tension on the cinematic ballad "Spiders" makes it a standout, and the stakes are nearly as high on "The Light That Shines on Everyone" and "Only in Dreams," a spacious, Laurel Canyon-esque track with plenty of room for Clarke's confessions to flow. At times, his contemplation gets a little too meandering, and some songs fall on the wrong side of the fine line between anthemic and clichéd. Nevertheless, The Soft Cavalry is a promising debut that's held together by the emotional commitment Clarke and Goswell bring to each of its songs. ~ Heather Phares

Nella testa di David Byrne

Ha capeggiato i Talking Heads, registrato il punk funk e la musica sudamericana, ripubblicato tesori della world music, passato ore a pedalare nelle più grandi città del mondo e fatto decine di altre cose. Ma cosa succede nella testa di David Byrne?

Tom Waits, gli anni Asylum

Prima di diventare una specie di Howlin’ Wolf punk da cabaret, il personaggio Tom Waits è nato come autore di canzoni ossessionato dal jazz, dalle melodie di Broadway e dalla Beat Generation di Kerouac. Tra il 1973 e il 1980, il californiano registrerà per l’etichetta Asylum sei album in studio e un live, ripubblicati di recente e rimasterizzati in alta risoluzione a 24 Bit. Retrospettiva sugli inizi caotici e appassionanti del barbone celeste più seducente.

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.
