Reseña de álbum

Dave Alvin summed up his work as well as anyone could when he quipped, "There are two types of folk music: quiet folk music and loud folk music. I play both." Alvin shows off his skill on both sides of the volume divide on 2011's Eleven Eleven, where he reaffirms his status as one of the best and most distinctive American songwriters alive. There are few artists who can match Alvin's gift for creating vivid characters and bringing their lives to life through music, and Eleven Eleven finds him near the top of his game as a tunesmith, while also showing off his estimable skills as a guitarist. Whether he's digging into the dirty details of Johnny Ace's death in 1954, embodying a man who may kill a powerful politician for money, focusing his powers of seduction on one woman in a dirty nightgown, or swapping stories of an old friend's adventures on both sides of the law, Alvin's lyrics give the people he sings about depth and detail, and they're crafted with the skill of a talented novelist. Alvin also knows what sort of background to give to these stories, and the spectral guitar and accordion accompaniment of "No Worries Mija" feels just as right as the bluesy Bo Diddley stomp of "Run Conejo Run," and Alvin's electric guitar solos — crisp, sharp, and bracing — are as potent as he's been in years. And longtime fans will get a special kick out of "What's Up with Your Brother?," in which he swaps verses with his brother and former bandmate Phil Alvin and pokes fun at their combative reputation. Hearing Dave Alvin at work is to hear a man who is both a poet and a craftsman and remarkably gifted at both; Eleven Eleven shows he's a long way away from running out of ideas, and these 11 portraits of life in the Golden State are engrossing, thoughtful music that should satisfy old fans and engage those introducing themselves to his work for the first time.

His best yet!

I just saw Dave and the Guilty People in Northampton, MA last night. I've seen him 3 times now and also 3 times with the Blasters, way back when. The new CD is wonderful, definitely his best. But you gotta see him live!!!!

Another Masterpiece

Another great work that also rocks, from America's premier songwriter/vocalist/picker. Dirty Nightgown, Whats Up With Your Brother, Run Conjeo Run and Johhny Ace Is Dead are all masterpieces of rock n roll storytelling. It just doesn't get any better than this

Dave Alvin does it again!

Simply put, this guy rules. Run, don't walk, to check this out. And if you're not familiar with Dave, check out "King of California." You won't be sorry.
