Vida Festival 2019

Last year during the fifth anniversary of the Vida music festival, they announced that British band The Charlatans would be headliners for the 2019 edition, and since then the international festival, which takes place in natural surrounds in nearby Vilanova i la Geltrú, has carried on bringing in more Anglo-based pop, rock, electronic and folk acts.

For example, you’ll also get to see veteran band Madness, who have been mixing pop, punk and ska in their eternal hits for some 40 years. Also among the first confirmed are house-pop from Londoners Hot Chip; magic folk with hints of Balkan sounds from Beirut; a new, sharper and more powerful sound from American artist Sharon Van Etten, presenting her new album; punk-pop from American band Superchunk; Él Mató a un Policía Motorizado, bringing alternative rock from Argentina; folk songs from Australians Stella Donnelly and Didirri; pop singer-songwriter Joan Colomo from right here in Catalonia; and elegant electronica from Catalan artist Carla.

Vida 2019 is on from Thursday, July 4 to Sunday, July 7 in the woodsy area of the Masía d’en Cabanyes in Vilanova i la Geltrú.

Hit of the week: Sharon Van Etten “Comeback Kid”

Sharon Van Etten  has shared her new song “Comeback Kid,” the first single off her forthcoming album Remind Me Tomorrow, out Jan. 18, 2019, on Jagjaguwar. The album is her first in nearly five years, following 2014’s Are We There.

“Comeback Kid” is the sound of glimmering street lights flitting by on a nighttime power-drive, a thoroughly darker and more driving sound than her work on Are We There.

Best Covers: Sharon Van Etten “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down”

Sharon Van Etten reportedly hit the studio late last year to begin work on her follow-up to 2014’s impressive Are We There LP. In the meantime, she’s collaborated with artists like Lee Ranaldo, Maggie Rogers, Marissa Nadler, and Michael Cera (yup), in addition to contributing to the Twin Peaks reboot and reissuing her debut album. Now, she’s back with yet another new song to help pass the time, this time a cover of LCD Soundsystem’s “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down”.

Filmed as part of BBC’s classical music concert series, BBC Proms, Van Etten was backed on the cover by the Heritage Orchestra for a performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The LCD cut is a fitting choice for the series, as this year’s theme is “New York: Sound of a City”.

Music by Bergman: Hercules & Love Affair

Tres anys i una aventura en solitari d’Andy Butler és el que ha passat des de la publicació de ‘The feast of the broken hjeart’ (2014), últim disc d’ Hercules & Love Affair, fantàstic projecte disco que completen Rouge Mary i Gustaph pel qual han passat les veus Anohni, Nomi Ruiz, Kim Ann Foxman o Aerea Negrot, entre altres. Ara presenten ‘Omnion’ (2017), el nou àlbum, on hi canten Faris Badwan de The Horrors o Sharon Van Etten, entre d’altres. Aquesta nit a la sala Apolo.

The muses of La Musa: Julia Jacklin

Compared to the great ladies of contemporary folk such as Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen and Courtney Barnett, the Australian singer Julia Jacklin has sneaked onto the best of the year list with a surprisingly mature album that travels from the rock and roll of the fifties to the best of contemporary folk through songs which include “Coming Of Age” and “Pool Party”. A delightful timeless album that Jacklin, who is just twenty-five, imbues with her elegant and velvety voice to become one of the surprising phenomenon of 2016. This year she will be playing at Primavera Sound.
