Music: The best álbumes of 2012. Third part
The best álbumes of 2012. Third part
We keep on offering the best álbumes of 2012.
20 BEN HOWARD – EVERY KINGDOM
Curiously when we speak about BEN HOWARD the first time, we tell you that EVERY KINGDOM was taking months edited and that the public was taking its time to discover it. Well … All that changed two weeks after publishing our entry. Because Howard climbed lightly in the British lists coinciding with the edition Deluxe of the album and it him has gone better enough. Slightly perfectly understandable. Because this is one of these discs that work thanks to the mouth - ear and its progression is usually slow, but sure. Howard is a British singer-songwriter assigned to the folk. In many interviews he has confessed that its parents were listening to Bob Dylan and to Joni Mitchell and that he considers them to be its big musical influences. He reminds us to us to a young David Gray, saving the distances.
19 REN HARVIEU – THROUGH THE NIGHT
We were the first ones in speaking about REN HARVIEU, - very much earlier even that Wikipedia was making its card - because we saw in her a big potential with this style retro and these grandiloquent ballads that he reminds to us to the repertoire of the big checkers of the Anglo-American song like Dusty Springfield, Peggy Lee or Cass Elliot Sucks … But adapted a XXIst Century. Following the stela of Rumer or Duffy. THROUGH THE NIGHT is composed by eleven cuts interpreted with an exquisite taste.
18 TO GIVE WILLIAMS – IN THE STEALS OF GODS
IN THE STEALS OF GODS it is an epic disc inspired by the Mythology, the bicycles and the cold sceneries of the isolated highways of New York. Beforehand, it is possible that a mortal being - since we speak about Gods - is unable to spin all these ideas and to offer a work as solid as this. But the fact is that TO GIVE WILLIAMS, in fact, is a goddess infiltrated and turned into a woman of its time who, a forties, decides to fight for all the things that it was dreaming to change a twenties and us everything is provided in this album with its everlasting honesty.
17 KRISTINA TRAIN – DARK BLACK
The style of KRISTINA TRAIN strolls between Pop, Soul, Jazz and Country music. She composes most of its songs and also, touches the guitar and the violin. DARK BLACK is its second work after an excellent album début that went unnoticed. Train can remember a little Norah Jones of the first discs, but it has charisma sufficient to shine with proper light and to be a modality for future singers. An album of a really exquisite taste much recommended for all the lovers of the music
16 BETH ORTON – SUGARING SEASON
BETH ORTON is a pioneer. One of the most innovative and revolutionary cantautoras of last decade. Perhaps it has taken too much time in returning and many people have forgotten it. Because, unfortunately, in the world of the music it does not matter what you have done earlier, only you cost what you have sold with your last disc and Comfort of Strangers, its penultimate album, it should not have sold too much if it was six years eliminated and it has had to return with new record stamp. SUGARING SEASON is not novel if you compare it with the rest of its work. Because the sensory universe of Beth Orton was already created. But its new songs sound big, immense … you would not know if to attribute the whole merit to the production of Tucker Martine. But it is sure that a part is his. This album paradoxically timeless, it might never have realized it ten years behind because the evolution of Orton as musician and composer is felt in each of the cuts.
15 SUSANNA HOFFS – SOMEDAY
The new comeback of The Bangles of 2011 served so that this year SUSANNA HOFFS was turning to the load with a new work alone titled SOMEDAY, a big disc with which we take the hat from ourselves before Susanna Hoffs musician and composer. Because its most beautiful voice has always been an extra cost. In Someday, we are kidlings joyitas of inspiration retro. The most beautiful, simple songs, very well construídas, fruit of a serene ripeness and of the great thing that he has learned in the years that stage has shared with big Matthew Sweet.
14 SHAWN COLVIN – ALL FALL DOWN
Other of the big returns of the year was that of the veteran SHAWN COLVIN that was not recording study album from 2006 and it returned with ALL FALL DOWN, a work composed by eleven courts and with the most interesting collaborations of Jakob Dylan, Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter or Patty Griffin. This time the production runs in charge of Buddy Miller, although John Leventhal, its producing fetish with which it had always worked, is present like co-writer, along with the proper Colvin, of three of the songs of the album.
13 MUMFORD AND SONS – BABEL
A big sense of expectancy existed with this second work of MUMFORD and SONS and one was speculating if there would be big changes. As we were waiting, they were not. But BABEL served to conquer the American market and to finish off the excellent results obtained with its album début. Of big changes had existed in the style and the production of this second album, perhaps nothing of that had happened. Although there are cuts in which a certain flirtation is glimpsed with the Rock, without leaving the identity sign folky of the band. A little that is grateful to himself for enough.
12 JAKE BUGG - JAKE BUGG
In view of the front of the album JAKE'S début great BUGG you might think that it is a question of an adolescent star in the wave of Justin Bieber, One Direction or Conor Maynard and nothing further of the reality. Bugg has eighteen years, the life expectancy of this new generation of artists. But its musical modality is different very different from those of its contemporaries: Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and Oasis. A little that is reflected in this first work that turns into one of the most interesting débuts of last five years and one of the best discs of 2.012.
11 MARY GUATEMALAN CARPENTER – ASHES AND ROSES
MARY GUATEMALAN CARPENTER returned with ASHES AND ROSES, an album that he was speaking on the death, the feeling of loss and the duel. Only someone as she could tackle these topics with the necessary ripeness and turn them into authentic poetry. A pity that one of the best contemporary cantautoras is a perfect stranger in our country. And a disc as big as this go unnoticed.
