Toujours un bonheur de découvrir un nouveau Tift Merritt une artiste essentielle. Un peu country, folk, soul de l'Americana entre Carole King et Emmylou Harris ...
Cet album est certainement le plus calme le plus abouti bref génial.
J'ai le CD et le vinyle et j'ai une nette préférence pour le second, plus de profondeur.

Format: CD
You'd think after four albums, Tift Merritt might run out of good songs. But no, "Traveling Alone" doesn't waste a chord. And while they're all good, a couple more make the List of Tift's great songs.

Tift's debut album, Bramble Rose, contains her earliest work, among them several masterpieces including "Trouble over Me" and "Are You Still in Love with Me." Later came "Still Pretending," "Mille Tendresses," "Keep You Happy," all beautiful love songs with more than a little poignancy (I guess Mille Tendresses fits that category - it's in French).

My favorite song on her previous album is "Papercut," and there's something there that foreshadows the melancholy undercurrent of "Traveling Alone."

Tift Merritt has matured nicely as an artist and as a woman. She's remained strong in the face of adversity, and she's remained true to herself. She's never sold out, but she's never given up.

Each of her albums maintains an old-school sense of the record as a whole, not just a collection of songs. "Traveling Alone" fully accomplishes that aspiration.

You'll really need to read the book of lyrics accompanying the record to get the full benefit of Tift's poetry. But of course you'll have to listen to the record to get the full benefit of Tift's music. And her voice is the cherry on Jack Horner's thumb.

The song that grabs me by the heartstrings is "Too Soon to Go." The melody is truly beautiful, and the words will make you cry.

The song that best captures the essence of the album is "Spring." Is it optimistic or fatalistic? Is Tift Merritt reflecting on the struggles and disappointments of life, or reveling in the rewards of the struggle? "It is a mystery like a lover's touch, brings a blossom from a winter's bud ... I wonder if there ever was a flower here at all."

She comes to the conclusion, though, "But it's worth it."

I'm glad she thinks so. I have no doubt. It was certainly worth it for me.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tift Finds Her Sweet Spot 2 octobre 2012
Par A. Orr - Publié sur
Format: CD
I am not YET prepared to declare this is Tift's best recording effort to date. However, I am prepared to say it feels like her most organically consistent and delightful work and to declare it as my favorite.

I've been reveling in Traveling Alone since obtaining a copy at Tift's CD release celebration on 9/21 in Carrboro, NC. Suffice it to say, Tift serves up a sensuously satisfying eleven course musical meal; eleven elegantly simple and straightforward songs deliciously seasoned to cook at a low simmer. This album is so understated and subtle that I predict you'll find it imperceptibly sneaking up on you until, by the conclusion of this meal, you realize your feeling satiated and not wanting the afterglow to end - which by the standards of any musical cookbook, is the mark of a great album and impeccable taste.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 She only looks like the girl next door. When she sings... 2 octobre 2012
Par Jesse Kornbluth - Publié sur
Format: CD
Because it's fairly obvious I have a soft spot for female writers and musicians, I get more than my share of CDs by female singer-songwriters. Most seem doomed --- they're not Nashville, they're not pop, and on the few college radio stations that champion American Roots, the genre generally begins and ends with Emmylou Harris.

But "Another Country" made me hopeful about a singer I knew nothing about. Tift Merritt's songs were smart and soft and deep, and she had a honey voice that a country singer would kill for, and, on the CD cover, she was beautiful in a girl-next-door way.

Fool that I am, I thought I could help her break out of the pack.

So we met.

Our conversation was thoroughly confusing. Tift Merritt is an astonishingly nice person, not a mean bone in her body and all that. She is also tough bordering on ferocious. Not about getting somewhere, although she was clearly not immune to the charms of stardom --- her determination was about her work.

Fool that she is, she thought there was real value in making music that mattered, music that aspired to art.

"Traveling Alone" might just qualify. It could not be more timeless, less trendy. It has just the right proportion of kick-ass songs to whispered meditations. She's supported by first-class musicians and a highly regarded producer. It's so well written that a line like "beauty is defiance in the face of death" is a throwaway. Maybe, just maybe, the planets are aligned in her favor this time.

I couldn't resist a rematch.

JK: A CD has become a collection of 99 cent singles to download. But this feels like a real album, not a shot at single hits.

TM: Exactly.

JK: Isn't that suicidal?

TM: The thought of making work that's easily consumed and quickly forgotten --- what's the point? I want my work to be cohesive, to age and improve like old leather.

JK: The theme of this CD is right in the title: traveling alone. Dare I ask you to elaborate?

TM: At the end of the day, we're alone. There are hard truths in that.

JK: Which reminds me: There are no songs about your relationship with your husband.

TM: I felt it was important for me to stand on my own.

JK: Standing alone --- standing erect, as it were --- do you feel more spine?

TM: Yes.

JK: How does that manifest?

TM: I no longer care what anyone thinks.

JK: How's that working for you?

TM: Quite well. I don't want to be overly philosophical, but I think there are things you earn for yourself as you go. And there are things that happen when you're 37 --- you see it's not a joke. It feels now or never.

JK: Don't scream: if it's now or never, why not go for a big hit?

TM: When I was nominated for a Grammy, my label dropped me --- I have a wariness about trying for a hit.

JK: So this is the most artistic CD you can make?

TM: Yes. I took a risk. I went my own way --- I made this record on my own. I paid for it. That was important for me.

JK: Do you know the story of `Dancing in the Dark?' Bruce Springsteen finished a CD. Jon Landau, his producer, said it was great --- but it lacked a hit. Bruce, annoyed, wrote `Dancing in the Dark' in, like, 20 minutes.

TM: Do you know how many times I've been told this story? And how many times it worked? Not once!

JK: There's a beautiful duet with someone who sounds like Roy Orbison. But Roy's dead. So who plays Roy?

TM: Andrew Bird. I wanted to write a duet. But Andrew lit the Roy candle in the studio.

JK: Bird is just one of the important musicians on this CD. But they don't play much. Why not?

TM: They're great musicians, but not great egos. At one point, the drummer, John Convertino, said, `Here's my contribution to this song --- I'm not playing.'

JK: So this is my take: `Traveling Alone' is an adult experience, not for kids, and the smarter you are, the more you can get from it.

TM: Thanks. I like the higher denominator.

Tift's best album since Bramble Rose, her 2002 debut, in my opinion. Gorgeous, tender songwriting and such emotionally powerful singing. Her voice has seasoned so well, and these songs carry a powerful soulfulness. A great album that you'll want to listen to over and over again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tift Does It Again! 17 octobre 2012
Par Erik North - Publié sur
Format: CD
Ever since her 2002 debut album BRAMBLE ROSE, Tift Merritt has proven to be, for my money, the finest singer to come into the music scene in this century. BRAMBLE ROSE and its four successors (TAMBOURINE; ANOTHER COUNTRY; BUCKINGHAM SOLO; SEE YOU ON THE MOON) showed Tift, a longtime veteran of the North Carolina music scene, to be a truly great artist, with a unique and literary style of songwriting, and a breezy, intelligent, un-Autotuned voice that is solid for the alternative country/Americana genre she is generally put into, but also a love for the "old school" country-rock of Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris, whose musical spirits have informed not only Tift but about four generations of very like-minded female country and roots-rock singers.

This tradition continues on her sixth album, TRAVELING ALONE, which she recorded with producer/engineer Tucker Martine (who worked with her on SEE YOU ON THE MOON in 2010) in her adapted hometown of Brooklyn. Even in the urban setting she recorded it in, there is a great deal of rusticity that is kind of a cross between her North Carolina roots and the Laurel Canyon sound of the early 1970s filtered through a 21st century alternative music sensibility, with a greater use of pedal steel (courtesy of Eric Heywood) than you'd find on a lot of mainstream country records. All eleven tracks, written by Tift herself, are brilliantly constructed and performed by her, but for me, the standout tracks in particular here are the title track itself, "Sweet Spot" (not to be confused with the similarly titled track on Linda's and Emmylou's WESTERN WALL), "Spring", and "To Myself". Additional help is accorded from Tift's longtime sideman Jay Brown on bass, as well as from John Coventino (of the alt-country group Calexico), and Andrew Bird, who harmonizes with Tift and plays violin on "Drifted Apart."

This, in short, is the sixth consecutive standout album for Tift. And as such, it is an unsurprising, but terrible, shame that Tift still cannot find her way onto corporate radio, country or otherwise, while Carrie Underwood's safe power anthems and Taylor Swift's teen-angst (from someone in her 20s!) and irritating vocal mannerisms dominate the airwaves. The lack of radio respect clearly hasn't hurt Tift in terms of her art, but it would be a great change of pace if this album could get some love. But then again, if Tift had to "dumb down" her approach to get that respect, she wouldn't be nearly the kind of great artist she is.

Regardless of what corporate radio bigwigs may think, I can't help but declare that TRAVELING ALONE will once again end up on my list of best albums for 2012. There are simply not enough great, or even merely good, female artists like Tift out there at the moment, which is why she is such a standout singer, regardless of genre. This, her sixth album, is one to be savored vicariously.
