Sharon van Etten arrives : “There”

Posted: May 27, 2014 at 3:21 am  

arewethere.lpoutThere is a darkness and depth that viewers search for in the actresses of this generation. Audiences look to screens everywhere not to project their dreams of romantic love, instead they dream in modern terms of sacrifice and perseverance. In 2014, the same can be said for the blossoming crop of female singer-songwriters who are taking the reins and throne of songwriters everywhere. Sharon van Etten is the latest arrival to shatter everything that is genre-specific and gender specific (thus slamming the door shut on the Lilith generation and revealing writing that is more visceral.) van Etten’s self-produced fourth album, the simply titled Are We There? asks hundreds of questions and answers few. The solace you find in her warm voice and the beautiful instrumentation are juxtaposed by some harsh images and songs find comfort in confusion.

Eno & Hyde: Another Pop World

brian eno karl hydeBrian Eno has one of the most diverse and unpredictable oeuvres of all musicians – yet, many may not even classify his tinkering as that.  Once the mysterious foil to Bryan Ferry in Roxy Music, his random synth squiggles defined the first pair of Roxy masterworks.  Never content playing second anything, Eno went solo and changed the face of rock n’roll on his own with three landmark albums.  Flash Forward to nearly 40 years later, as Eno has decided to return to Another Green World.

Kelis’ tasty “Food”

kelisfoodKelis is not one of those names synonymous with R&B.  While her milkshake still brings boys to her yard, she wisely refused to be caught out there in the realm of pigeonholed/categorized music.  Like a movie star, she caught fire with some singles that were bracing and yet overtly commercial and chose to use that currency to find her own direction.  Food stands as her finest accomplishment yet.  An intoxicating mix of classic Prince-like soul with the perfect hints of gospel, funk and Afrobeat.
