The muses of La Musa: Elena Setién

Elena Setién is a versatile artist in a permanent state of reinvention who, after having lived almost twenty years in London, Barcelona and Copenhagen, releases Dreaming of Earthly Things (Enja-Yellowbird, 2016). A complete record but not complex, easy to assimilate and with a lot of juice to extract that incorporates the legacy of names like Tom Waits, Billie Holiday or Nico, artists who marked her childhood. A flawless collection of songs that pretend to be autobiographical and yet they are a reflect of everyday situations created with a casual and naif tone.

Les muses de La Musa: Cate Le Bon

L’univers folk post-punk pastoral de la galesa Cate Le Bon ens visita per presentar el seu quart disc, ‘Crab day’ (2016). Amb una veu que recorda a Nico, Le Bon va cridar l’atenció internacional per primera vegada el 2007, quan va telonejar al seu paisà Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), ens inunda amb saxos, guitarres distorsionades, percussions i un so que ens transporta al glam de T Rex i al Bowie de la primera meitat dels 70. Aquesta nit a Sidecar.
