Logan Hone: Logan Hone's Similar Fashion

Vincenzo Roggero By

Sign in to view read count
Logan Hone, segnatevi questo nome. Viso imberbe, occhiali da primo della classe e tante idee per la testa. Suona il sax e non solo—clarinetto basso, chitarra, banjo, diavolerie elettroniche, percussioni sono gli altri gingilli con i quali si diletta—ma soprattutto scrive musica. Per i suoi svariati gruppi, per il cinema con i Giant Frame, per opere sperimentali con Deseret Experimetal Opera Company, e per il suo quartetto denominato Similar Fashion.

Musica difficile da etichettare (che meraviglia!), strumentazione anomala, sfrontatezza, irriverenza e humor quanto basta. Musica dalla scrittura complessa che improvvisazione e lucidità nella direzione musicale rendono immediatamente accessibile, con freschezza interpretativa e sonorità che pescano nella storia downtown newyorchese per rivestirla con gli abiti della contemporaneità.

Difficile scegliere tra i nove brani presenti nell'album. Si parte con "Mother Figure," echi di folk britannico, attraversati dal contralto acido del leader, che si affacciano nel finale sulla misteriosità del silenzio. Si prosegue con "MJT" cacofonia minimalista, nevrosi sonora metropolitana ingentilita da un finale onirico. Per trovare poi "Fresh and Clean" meravigliose cadenze danzanti, con la viola di Lauren Baba a difendersi dalla scherzosa opera di disturbo della chitarra di Gregory Uhlmann. "Snapshot" è pura energia rock in stile zappiano mentre "Movable Walls" ci appare come un lungo piano sequenza ipnotico e misterioso.

Per farla breve, mettete il CD nel lettore e abbandonatevi all'ascolto senza indugi!
