    Ray LaMontagne løp og kjøp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ray LaMontagne

    Må bare anbefale Ray LaMontagne. Han er en fantastisk god singer songwriter.
    Begge platene bare vokser for hver lytting. Det er også en fin bonus at det er god lyd på begge platene. Vakkert og engasjerende.



    L. Keane, Hybrid Magazine

    Every once in a great while, a record comes along that contains all of the ingredients to make it an instant classic. Ray LaMontagne's new release Trouble is one such record. Hearing one of these songs on the radio, one is sure to recognize the instantly accessible sound, the righteous vocals, and the truly great musicality. But the truly great experience comes when listening to the full record, song after song of blissful melody and easy rhythm. From the album opener "Trouble" through to the closing notes of "All The Wild Horses", Trouble is packed with the kind of rock music that wraps itself calmly around your heart and squeezes, instilling warmth and a peaceful sense of well-being. The songs tend to be a bit downbeat, similar in cast to the archetypal Van Morrison Tupelo Honey-era. Lush string accompaniments fill out the slow-down of songs like "Shelter", creating a memorable and calming resting place amidst the daily storms of life. A little bit of Bob Dylan's spirit breaks loose on "Narrow Escape", all acoustic guitars, howling harmonicas, and gruff vocals. "Burn" has an airy and complex quality that recalls the early years of David Gray, while maintaining a more vintage-era rock-folk tone. Perfect acoustic guitars provide the main rhythms and add a glorious spiritual uplift on "Forever My Friend". Turning on the lo-fi yet clean on "All The Wild Horses", LaMontagne leaves the heart with a sense of complete fulfillment, yet also a longing for more.

    The songwriting on Trouble is incredible, showing the world that Ray LaMontagne is no flash in the pan. The lyrics are filled with a mysterious depth and heart-wrenching honesty that is amplified with LaMontagne's forthright delivery. This is not a record for background listening, although it would play the part well, but is more suited to periods of calm meditation and introspection.


    Ray LaMontagne's debut record Trouble was hailed by many, including some here at Hybrid Magazine, as an instant classic. The music was solid and filled with probably the finest soul vibe found in any recording over the past twenty years. LaMontagne's newest, Till The Sun Turns Black, is a departure from that classic soulful sound. Instead, on this latest record, Ray turns towards a more introspective sound, revealing more of his personality and intrinsic quirkiness. This album features songwriting that is far superior to that found on Trouble and replaces the classic sound with music of a more refined and timeless quality.

    LaMontagne's voice is just as soulful and rich, but the songs have a mellower and easier feeling to them. One listen to the album's opener "Be Here Now" is proof enough of that. The orchestration on Till The Sun Turns Black is elegant and rich, eclipsing the brilliant pop of such contemporaries as Duncan Sheik and Johnathan Rice. "Empty" is a fitting title for a song that hangs so much resigned melancholy on its folds that if you're feeling emotionally vulnerable, you may well end up hanging your head and crying. By the time the soulful and late 60's Motown vibe of "Three More Days" kicks in, the upbeat tempo is a welcome change, even though lyrically LaMontagne remains in a darker mode than on his previous release. The organ and sweet drumming turns this song into one of Ray's instant classics. "Can I Stay" is a deeply personal song that lays tranquil melodies alongside some of the most emotionally charged lyrical phrasing I've heard recently.

    Fans of Ray LaMontagne's Trouble will definitely find music they can enjoy on Till The Sun Turns Black… but LaMontagne's songwriting is far more mature, with songs of a much greater depth and personality. "Gone Away From Me" has a very Simon And Garfunkel vibe, steady and strong, while "Lesson Learned" is possibly the most personal song LaMontagne has ever penned.

    If you like your songwriting with just the right touch of melancholy, but in a refined and groovy package, then Till The Sun Turns Black is a record for you. The songs won't tend to make you want to get up and shake your moneymaker, but they will soothe your weary soul and let you realize that there is immense beauty amidst all the pain.

    Ray LaMontagne er meget dyktig.
    Han har også gitt ut hele fire plater før han ble signert på noe som helst plateselskap. Disse er desverre meeeget vanskelige å få tak i
    Det som er litt spesielt med den første platen trådstarter nevner er at sangene i utgangspunktet kun var demoer som ble sent til produsenten Ethan Johns (som bla har jobbet med Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Phil Cody, Rufus Wainwright, Ben Kweller,... ).
    Tar du en titt inni coveret vil du se at Ethan spiller de fleste instrumentene selv (trommer, bass, piano, el-gitarer osv). Dette gjorde han faktisk direkte oppå demoen som han fikk tilsendt, spor for spor i sitt eget studio.
    Resultatet ble kanskje en av 2004 beste album: "Trouble"

    Hei!
    La merke til denne/dette, og forrige dagen så spilte de "Till the Sun Turns Black" over ht. på Platekompaniet i Byporten (Oslo)
    De spiller forøvrig svært ofte musikk som trekker meg bort til disken for å sjekke hva de spiller i den "avdelingen".
    I dag kjøpte jeg begge i Sandvika og jeg liker godt det jeg hører
    Takker for tipset.
    Mvh.KW
