Juliette Commagere on Echoes

I’ve been enchanted by the voice of Juliette Commagere since I heard her singing on a Ry Cooder record, Chavez Ravine. Then “Gold,” the track she sang on Love on A Real Train’s debut last year was one of our favorite cuts.  Juliette recently released her third solo album, Human.  It’s a beautiful and introspective electronic song cycle.  Juliette Commagere talks about her musical family and songs on the dark side in the Echoes Podcast.

Dreams and Machines, Autoharps and Sequencers tonight on Echoes.

October 10, 2013

Tonight on Echoes you can hear a singer-songwriter who could’ve been recording 50 years ago and another who is strickly 21st century.  And I have electronic music that could’ve been made forty years ago and another born from contemporary aesthetics.

Basia-Bulat-Tall-Tall-ShadowBasia Bulat is a singer who has just released her third album, Tall Tall Shadow.  She’s got a fragile, slightly aged voice, although he’s not quite 30 yet and she plays an instrument that hasn’t been in popular music much since John Sebastian played one with The Lovin’ Spoonful: the autoharp.  But she writes some beautiful heartbreaking songs with lovely atmospheres.

HumanJuliette Commagere, on the other hand is a singer who is surrounded by roots music but goes completely electronic on her new album, Human.  Commagere is married to Joachim Cooder, the son of Ry Cooder and she’s sung on several of Ry Cooder’s albums.  While Ry is known for his roots music, Commagere, plugs in with vintage analog synths sounds and creates an album of moody electro-pop that perfectly frames her coolly sexual voice.  In an Echoes Blindfold test, I played Jon Hassell a track by Ry Cooder called “El UFO Cayó.” With just a couple of notes from the singer he just said, “Ahhh, Juliette.”

Solar MaxMajeure signals its roots in its name, drawn from Tangerine Dream’s album, Force Majeure.  Their 2012 album, Solar Maximum is one of those CDs that sounds like the band sneaked into the Berlin studio of Tangerine Dream circa 1974, just after they’d finished recording Phaedra.  It’s sequencers on stun for this band.  Majeure is touring this fall with Mono.

indexThe Orb is a creation of 1990s ambient music, although the influence of Tangerine Dream isn’t far behind on a 2007 album called The Dream.  Neither is early Pink Floyd and Gong on the track we’ll hear, “Codes,” which features glissando guitar from Gong’s Steve Hillage, who we’ve also been hearing a lot on Echoes lately with his System 7 group.  The Orb is touring the US this fall including an appearance at the Mountain Oasis Music Summit.

It’s all a dream tonight on Echoes.
