James Dean Bradfield Even in Exile Zip Download
James Dean Bradfield – Even in Exile Full Tracklist – When a million Chileans gathered in Santiago last October to demand the resignation of President Sebastian Pinera, it was to the sound of “The Right to Live in Peace” by Victor Jara, an iconic poet, protest singer and activist murdered in the violent Pinochet’s United States. supported the 1973 coup. Jara’s voice lasted for decades inspired Manic Street Preachers frontman James Dean Bradfield to dedicate his first solo album in 14 years to him, using poems that pointed out moments in Jara’s life for the poet and playwright Patrick Jones as lyrics.
A master at sticking verses elaborated into verses too small for them, Bradfield could have turned Even in Exile into a long-winded tangle of exotic oppression. Instead, to draw parallels with the “acceptable” brutalization of today’s socialist figures, he takes a more impressionistic approach. Spanish guitar touches and Latin metals evoke South American warmth in songs like “Under the Mimosa Tree” and Bradfield surrounds scenes from Jara’s childhood and holds a wonderfully animated guitar touch in “The Boy from the Plantation” and “Recuerda” . But the record breaks even stronger when Bradfield’s stratospheric rock loads acquire a broader political resonance: in the tectonic flamenco of “From the Hands of Violeta”, the cabaret pomp of “Thirty Thousand Milk Bottles” (“one for each death solitary “) or” There will be a war “, as desolate and mechanized as Pinochet’s bloodshed.
