Who Is…Serafina Steer

By Victoria Segal, Contributor

"Seeing the word 'kooky' in relation to my stuff is sickening," shudders Serafina Steer, all too aware of the pre- and misconceptions that come swarming the minute a harp enters the picture. Her horror is utterly justified: the classically-trained Steer's third album, The Moths Are Real, is a transfixing collection of songs that trip between the lyrical and the conversational, the physical and the ethereal. Robust folklore rubs up against Greek mythology; oracular meditations on… more »

From a Whisper to a Scream

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

Börk's got a lot going for her: eccentric songwriting, visual presence, a smartly chosen bunch of collaborators, high-flying conceptual grandeur. More than anything, though, she's got a voice like nothing else on the planet. It's bizarre and lovely, a sound that seems at home both on radio hits and in avant-garde art spaces. It communicates at least as much as her songs themselves, and in fact presenting lyrics is pretty far from the point: unless… more »

Chris McGregor: Cape Town to Free Town

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

It wasn't easy, being the interracial Blue Notes in 1963 apartheid South Africa: a black horns-and-rhythm combo with a white pianist/music director, Chris McGregor. They skipped out of Cape Town the following year: went to a French festival and didn't return. In London by '65, the quintet's members were welcomed by forward-looking jazz musicians: Steve Lacy drafted bassist Johnny Dyani and drummer Louis Moholo for the album The Forest and the Zoo, and an ill-fated… more »

They Say All Music Guide

This compilation of early-’80s singles includes some of Wyatt’s finest work. Aside from “Born Again Cretin” (whose vocals recall the Beach Boys at their most experimental), all of it’s non-original material that Wyatt makes his own with his sad, haunting vocals. You could hardly ask for a more diverse assortment of covers: Chic’s “At Last I Am Free” (given an eerie treatment with especially mysterious, spacy keyboards), the a cappella gospel of “Stalin Wasn’t Stallin’,” political commentary with “Trade Union,” the Billie Holiday standard “Strange Fruit,” Ivor Cutler’s “Grass,” and a couple of songs in Spanish. The tracks have since been reissued a few times, with bonus tracks such as the “Shipbuilding” single; the best option for U.S. consumers is Compilation, which pairs Nothing Can Stop Us with Old Rottenhat. – Richie Unterberger
