Ladies of the Canyon

9. november 2017

I love her words, I love her guitar playing and the tunings, and it’s just constant inspiration for me, especially in that very, very personal ‘writing about your own life as subject matter’ stuff. She’s the queen of it in a way. I’ve been talking a lot about that first record that some people call Song To A Seagull and the songs are beautiful on it, but it’s also got this great over-riding concept, there’s a side about the country and a side about the city. You could say Joni is this folk singer but at the beginning she had this whole conceptual side and her early records are very conceptual. Ladies of the Canyon I’ve just started listening to again recently. I feel like besides Blue it’s just one of those ones that’s so classic and overheard you just stop listening to it because you’ve heard it so many times.   [Lee Ranaldo, Sonic Youth]

Jeg kan kun være enig med Ranaldo. Denne plade er creme de la creme.

 

Dylans Nobeltale på tryk

9. november 2017

Medens vi venter på fortsættelsen af Bob Dylan krøniker fra sit liv, så har forlaget Simon & Schuster været snarrådige og udgive Dylans kontroversielle Nobelforelæsning. Så kan debatten om mandens forfatterevner fortsætte – og han selv fortsætte med det, der optager ham: spille koncerter og lave musik til eftertiden.
