Cruïlla 2017

El festival Cruïlla, un dels festivals de referència de l’estiu a la ciutat, celebrarà la seva vuitena edició els dies 7 i 8 de Juliol al Parc del Fòrum apostant com sempre per un cartell eclèctic al marge de barreres estilístiques.

Després d’una primera tongada d’artistes anunciats, el Cruïlla ha confirmat les actuacions de Jamiroquai, que presentarà el seu nou disc en el que serà l’únic concert a Espanya de Jay Kay; Pet Shop Boys, que presentaran en directe ‘Super’ (2016); a més dels directes de The Prodigy, Two Door Cinema Club, Die Antwoord, Ryan Adams, Little Steven & The Disciples of Soul (projecte de Steven Van Zandt), Ani Difranco, Residente (meitat de Calle 13), el pioner de l’electro-swing Parov Stelar (si el seu nom no us sona els seus ‘hits’ segur que sí), la francesa Jain (autora de l’èxit televisiu ‘Come’), i AronChupa (factòtum d”I’m an Albatraoz’).

Pel que fa als artistes estatals, destaquen Txarango, Exquirla (el nou projecte que uneix el ‘cantaor’ Niño de Elche i el grup de rock instrumental Toundra), Enric Montefusco, La Raíz, Dorian, Nicola Cruz, El Petit de Cal Eril, Pau Vallvé, Carlos Sadness, Neuman i Oques Grasses, entre d’altres.

S’afegeixen als ja confirmats The Lumineers, banda de Denver convertida en una de les referències de la nova Americana i que presentarà el seu segon disc, ‘Cleopatra’ (2016); Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, que porten 25 anys com una de les bandes més importants del rock en espanyol; Youssou N’Dour, figura clau de la música africana, l’alemany Patrice, creador del Sweggae, presentant el seu nou disc, ‘Life’s blood’ (2016) o l’MC Kase.O, que torna al Cruïlla per presentar nou disc, ‘El Círculo’.

El Cruïlla manté també la seva oferta de concerts més llargs que l’estàndard dels festivals, 90 minuts per als caps de cartell i 60 minuts per a la resta d’artistes i grups.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

With his deep voice and stripped-down, introspective sound, Nathaniel Rateliff has become one of the most interesting and admired figures on the US folk scene, sharing the bill with the likes of Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, Bon Iver and Wilco. On his latest album, released in 2015, he takes a surprising foray into soul territory, coming up with a collection of unusual, intense songs. Has our man joined the recent neo soul movement? Not exactly – Rateliff takes things a step further and reworks the genre, giving it a fresh, original touch. Don’t miss this chance to hear the latest sounds from one of the leading figures on the American indie music scene. Today at sala Barts.

Tonight The Lumineers

The Lumineers path to success was quite a hard one. Their project started very early, when Wesley Schultz (singer and guitar player) and Jeremiah Fraites (drums) started to write songs in order to overcome their brother and friend´s Josh Fraites death.

It wasn´t until they met the chelo player and vocalist Nayla Pekarek that they established as The Lumineers in 2010. When one of their first singles, “Stubborn Love” appeared in an Obama playlist in Spotify, their album remained 46 weeks at the Billboard lists.

Their debut tonight in Pedralbes is part of the tour that is presenting their new album “Cleopatra”, in which they got inspiration from Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. Their Americana ageless sound blends nicely crafted folk songs with postmodern cinematic landscapes.

Music by Bergman: Andy Shauf

Mestre Bergman introduces us to this striking arist. The background: Shauf belongs to that category of gentle, breathy-voiced cult singer-songwriters, mainly American, who specialise in wan, waspish tales of marginalised characters and their bittersweet love lives. So if you like Elliott Smith, Joe Pernice, Andrew Morgan, Kevin Tihista or the Aluminium Group, then you’ll love this Canadian purveyor of melodic chamber-pop. His music is richly textured but recorded on the cheap – often in his parents’ basement in the wild prairies of Saskatchewan. He’s already released a couple of albums, issued on tiny Canadian labels with no distribution in Europe, but this could be his moment. He has just signed to ANTI-, home to Tom Waits, Wilco and Neko Case, and he’s every bit as impressive as, say, Tobias Jesso Jr. He’s touring the UK in April and May with the Lumineers, although we won’t hold that against him.
