In America the golden season for music festivals ended up in late '69 with the Altamont's accidents, a few months after Woodstock. In the early seventies in Europe there was still space for some "good vibrations", as proved by the Kralingen Pop festival, near Rotterdam, on June 1970. The event, documented by the movie Stamping Ground, is often remembered as the European Woodstock, because of the presence of many artists that had already played on that historical three-days concert, like Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Canned Heat, Country Joe. But the Kralingen festival also showed how vital was the British scene on that period, offering great perfomances by bands like Pink Floyd, Soft Machine, East Of Eden, Caravan, Fairport Convention, Family, T. Rex…

Since releasing their debut album The Chase back in 2013, Montreal indie folk pop band Groenland are returning with their sophomore effort A Wider Space on September 16th, 2016. After two years of touring in support of The Chase, Groenland regrouped and hit a more personal and intimate level of songwriting for the new album. A first look into A Wider Spaces comes in the form of the lead single Healing Suns . Colourful, synth-pop melodies mixed with a touch of jazz, and the band s signature orchestral arrangements makes the new single irresistible, giving A Wider Space a strong first step forward. Although the song is drenched in colour and a contagious energy, its meaning originates from a darker place, as the band explains: Healing Suns is a song that represents the rediscovery of our own light after a long period of doubt. But as the sun rises on their re-structured confidence, the band returns to their warm-spirited nature and songwriting.

With her marriage on the rocks and looking for a fresh start, Carole King moved to Los Angeles in 1967. More specifically, Laurel Canyon, where she fell in with the nascent singer/songwriter crowd. She and bassist/boyfriend Charles Larkey (formerly of the Myddle Class, a band she and then-husband Gerry Goffin had signed to their record label) soon formed a band, adding old friend from NYC, guitarist Danny Kortchmar. The trio spent time at King's house working on a batch of songs she had written with Goffin (some previously released by other acts, some not), plus some co-written by another member of Myddle Class, Don Palmer, and fellow Brill Building refugee Toni Stern. Thanks to their industry connections it wasn't long before they had a record deal. Adding drummer Jim Gordon and naming themselves the City, they hit the studio with Lou Adler producing. The outcome of the sessions was the thoroughly charming Now That Everything's Been Said LP. Released in 1968 on Ode Records, the album had one foot in the kind of radio pop bands like the Monkees and the Mamas & the Papas were cranking out and another in the earthy, homegrown realm of singer/songwriters like Joni Mitchell and, a few years later, King herself.

The musical poles Nashville and Los Angeles could hardly be further apart. And yet, it fits the unusual vita of Lesley Kernochan that the artist from the city of angels has recorded her album "A Calm Sun" in the country Mecca. This follows an a cappella work, a song collection that combines Americana, folk, rock, jazz and pop, as well as a release for children who have been awarded the Parent's Choice Gold Award. On the 14 quite varied songs of "A Calm Sun", Kernochan is always in the center with her four octaves-wide voice, which needs comparisons with Dolly Parton, Eleni Mandell or Gillian Welch. Her contributions to the piano and guitar round off the Who is who of the Nashville scene.
