“Women In Music PT. III,” HAIM

The band Haim — the trio of sisters este, Danielle and Alana Haim — have been carving out space in 2007, but with a “women in music PT. III,” they found their place and is thriving in it. There is a confidence to the album that is combined with a breadth of musical influence — Lou reed vibration in “summer girl,” jazz & gospel tones “Los Angeles”, “southern rock” shade in “steps” and electronic feel “I know one.” Not surprisingly, some of their songs with strong elements of pop (six of the 16 tracks from the full record) were released as singles before the album. And while there is the presence of pop on the LP, the songs couldn’t prepare the audience for an overall track list, which plays on the “Women in music PT. Section III.” Songs like “people magazine” and “sleep” immersed in the rock-field with the former reminiscent of Joni Mitchell. “Hallelujah”, meanwhile, reminds viewers of the talent of Haim with a stripped-down arrangement is a hard harmony. Around, Haim balances upbeat melodies with emotionally Mature lyrics. “I know one” it’s about until 2020. “I only know, as nobody does,” trio to sing. In the choreography of the music video for the song, Three to make a finger movement like scrolling through social networks. After a month of quarantine and social distancing pandemic coronavirus, the song, like much of the album, it will be easy to find an audience. — Ragan Clark, Associated Press

“MONOVISION”, ray LaMontagne

Ray LaMontagne takes a comprehensive less-is-more approach on “MONOVISION”, his eighth album. Solo work in the truest sense of the word, LaMontagne played all instruments, wrote all the songs, and even designed and produced the 10-song collection. While LaMontagne, new Hampshire-born residents of Massachusetts as a rule, expanding his sound from album to album — add lines, for example, or dipping more than a toe into psychedelia — that he takes a few steps back, and the result is stunningly refreshing. The list of key influences on the earlier albums as van Morrison, Neil young, is also present here, but now they are directed to a greater extent than before, thanks to the unfussy arrangements and a deep and wide range, allowing you to avoid the feeling of claustrophobia or the cut despite the record based on the process any overlays. A trio of songs to open the second half of the album echoes them clearly. You can feel Morrison staring across the ocean on “misty morning rain” and “Rocky mountain rehabilitation center'” blend young harmonica with the seriousness of John Denver. “Weeping willow” has an innocence and harmony of the early Everly brothers tune. “Strong enough”, which causes the victim’s mother among the future, which seems more ensured, the ring by Creedence Clearwater. More songs with its fast pace would make a good album. The two best tracks, “we’ll manage” and highway “of the Sun,” the last song on each side of the vinyl. The first wraps his confidence about the relationship in a poignant melody with a fluttering harmonica, and the second is languid and bitter — “I just want to feel something real before I die” — leaving the door open to the possibility that the wish can come true. LaMontagne has filled out “MONOVISION” with warmth and pure emotions into the song that even without all the bells and whistles, the truth is in the ears and hearts.

“Little Movies,” Will Hoge

The whole album angry political anthems can be debilitating, as daily headlines. Therefore, tn, the rocker will Hoge probably makes sense to keep his temper in check most of their new 11-song, “little movies.”But Hoge twice allows himself to rant on the state of the nation, which results in the album’s most interesting music, soundtrack and compelling content for progressive political movement. “Overthrow” refers to only one correct name “Darth Vader with a spray tan” — but not too thin legs, went to dance, in search of an audience, seeking to change the leadership. “Cheater Blues” strikes a similar chord in a different tonality and rocks even harder, since the channels Hoge punk rage, His anger again accurately. To maintain this level of passion will be a lot to ask, and instead much of the rest is two guitars, four-square roots-rock with a unique blend of tempo and mood. Hoge to reduce to consider love gone wrong on “my worst” “even the river runs from this city” and “that’s all you wanted me?” “You can’t change the color of the Blues,” he said. If the object is-this is politics, and romance, Hoge sings with a hungry heart, he recalled the commitment of the guy who sang “Hungry heart.” — Steven Wine, Associated Press
