Un disco lo puoi presentare come una tappa di una biografia, parlando di chi lo ha scritto e registrato. Per esempio, i Brothers In Law sono un gruppo nato a Pesaro nel 2011, hanno pubblicato un paio di EP eccetera.
Oppure, di un disco puoi descrivere i suoni, i rimandi, le influenze. Per esempio, nei Brothers In Law rivivono le chitarre frementi e i riverberi elettrici di certo post-punk inglese Anni Ottanta, più quella sensibilità indiepop che è stata in seguito tramandata e filtrata da etichette contemporanee come la Captured Tracks, giusto per citarne una. Si dovrebbero a questo punto elencare alcuni altri nomi più o meno noti, modelli riconosciuti e via di seguito.
Ma il fatto è che a volte muoversi così non basta. A volte, semplicemente ascoltando il fluire di alcune canzoni, ti accorgi che un disco è anche qualcosa di diverso. Qualcosa di molto più forte, e forse di più semplice. Hard Times For Dreamers è uno di quei dischi che custodisce una somma superiore alla somma delle sue parti. In maniera del tutto naturale, istintiva, i Brothers In Law scavalcano la sterilità di un comunicato stampa o di altre parole, si impadroniscono della musica e diventano i propri eroi musicali dell’adolescenza. Hard Times For Dreamers, con i suoi testi che parlano di cose normali come la periferia, l’innamorarsi e le disillusioni, racconta anche la storia di una band che questi “tempi duri” li attraversa, li piega e va a prendersi i sogni che da sempre ha dentro.


An album can be presented as a passage from a biography, talking about who wrote and recorded it. Brothers In Law, for example, is a band from Pesaro, active since 2011, who has released a couple of EPs. And so on. Or, when discussing an album, you can describe the sounds, the references, the influences. For example, in Brothers In Law’s new album, vivid guitars and electric reverbrs revive certain British post-punk from the eighties, in addition to that indiepop feeling that was later passed down and filtered by labels like Captured Tracks. You should now list some other label and band names more or less known, recognized models and so on.
But the fact is that sometimes it is not enough to talk this way about a new release. Sometimes, simply listening to the flow of some songs, you realize that an album is also something different. Something much stronger, and perhaps simpler. Hard Times For Dreamers is one of those albums that keeps a sum greater than the collection of its parts. In a very natural and instinctive way, Brothers In Law override the sterility of a press release, take control of the sound and become their own musical heroes. Hard Times For Dreamers, with lyrics that discuss normal things like the suburbs, falling in love, and disappointments, also tells the story of a band that goes through these “hard times”, folds them, and goes straight for the dreams they have always had inside.
