When emotions are conveyed without artifice or great instrumental waste, they tend to reach deeper. And when good melodies are sustained with only two or three voices and two guitars, the connection is also more direct. It is the law of less is more. The same that unites the Norwegians Kings of Convenience and the Australian John Butler. The triumph of simplicity.
Norwegians Erlend Øye and Eirik Glambek Bøe form one of the most intoxicating creative couples in European pop. They are not very prolific discographically: barely four albums in a little more than two decades, but their acoustic arguments, between folk purification and occasional hints of bossa nova, always border on the sublime and justify the anxious wait of their fans. They were framed by a generational question in the wave of acoustic projects of the beginning of the century (Turin Brakes, Sondre Lerche), but they enriched their sound in a slightly perceptible way, without altering their essence, in four outstanding works: From Quiet Is The New Loud (2001) to Peace or Love (2021), passing through Declaration of Dependence (2009) or Riot on an Empty Street (2004). Live, the two musicians from Bergen complement each other perfectly, and are always a waste of subtlety, sensitivity and positive vibes.
John Butler is an Australian musician, born in the USA, who, leading The John Butler Trio, has spent more than two decades preaching the virtues of a style that draws from blues, Celtic music and even the sounds of the native Indians, through seven albums (Sunrise Over The Sea, gold record in 2005, was his confirmation) as austere as his origins: He started as a street musician in Fremantle (Australia), and that commitment to the essence of his art has not ceased until today, always also frankly defending his political and ethical values, advocating peace and respect for the environment. Live he is a sure value, as evidenced by the five live albums he has already released.
