Americana SongThe Americana Song
Intimate songs in pure American style on Ryan Bingham's latest record.
The CD I have in my hands comes from the United States; it's "American love song", the last recording of the singer-songwriter from New Mexico Ryan Bingham, who is also known in Italy for the Oscar for the song "The Weary Kind", composed with T-Bone Burnett and included in the soundtrack of the movie Crazy Heart in 2009.
The album, fifteen tracks for a total of about an hour of musical listening, is the sixth in the Bingham discography, was recorded in Texas and produced by Bingham himself together with Charlie Sexton, a guitarist who is known to have been "at the court of King Dylan" for about ten years (from 1992 to 2002).
A record that can be captivating, sweet, hard, gripping, depending on the moment, presents itself as a typical product of the US music tradition, with violins, guitar and so on. "America Loves Song also contains all the elements and hardships of hard and fast music. About the album Bingham, who says that he is very satisfied with the musical collaboration with Sexton, he agrees that it is a cathartic work and that in the end it was quite an emotional experience for him.
