Joan As Police Woman — Cover Two (May 1, 2020)USA FLAG   Joan As Police Woman — Cover Two (May 1, 2020) Joan As Police Woman — Cover Two (May 1, 2020)↵    Jedenáct let poté, co Joan Wasser reinterpretovala písně umělců včetně Britney Spears, Davida Bowieho, Jimiho Hendrixe a dokonce i Adam & The Ants, se vrací na „Cover Two“ s další eklektickou směsicí skladeb. Tentokrát není výběr písniček o nic méně náhodný, kromě toho, že tvoří některé z jejích oblíbených, protože se připravuje na jejich dekonstrukci a vytvoření všech svých vlastních. Původní vydání bylo poněkud omezené — bylo k dispozici pouze v shopu JAPW — a na vinylu zůstává nedostupné. Tentokrát se Cover Two uchopilo lépe a fans si mohou vybrat z CD nebo červeného vinylu. K písním patří její verze od Prince: Kiss (živá oblíbená a již dostupná v loňské sbírce JOANTHOLOGY; klasika Michaela McDonalda I Keep Forgettin’ (If That What I Take (1982)); titulní skladba od Neila Younga) kdysi nepolapitelná On The Beach (původně vydán v roce 1974), a Out Of Time od Blur (z alba Think Thinkank (2003)). Jak Joan míří ke svým 50, zdá se, že spíše nabírá na síle než se uvolňuje. Cover Two navazuje na její retrospektivní Joanthology z minulého roku a její svůdné album vydání úplně nového materiálu — Damned Devotion z února 2018. Reinterpretace nebo verze jiného umělce je vždy velmi choulostivá oblast. Jste zcela soucitní s originálem? Chodíte všichni ven, abyste změnili samotnou strukturu písně? Děláte něco radikálního? V každém případě je to tak subjektivní a je nepravděpodobné, že potěší tvrdé fanoušky originálu. Risk vs odměna však musí jít stranou: obvykle to vyvolá některé velmi zajímavé verze. Např. verze Kiss ji strhne dozadu, zpomalí ji dolů a odhalí svůj hlas, takže ho ani nikam neukrývá. Když máte hlas jako Joan, není to problém, je to úplná radost. Oduševnělá podšívka, dodaná se správným množstvím smyslnosti dokonale zachycuje podstatu originálu a zároveň ho trochu otáčí. Joanin uvolněný bpm rhythm rozšiřuje původní píseň o minutu a půl navíc, natahuje vokál do nádherně honosného výkonu, za pomoci nějakého chytře zpracovaného a přehledného nástroje. Sotva se vyskytující kytara, přerušovaný klavír, minimální tamburína a doutnající vokální kombinace nabízejí skvělou interpretaci skvělé písně.  Joan As Police Woman — Cover Two (May 1, 2020)Birth name: Joan Wasser

  Joan As Police Woman — Cover TwoAllMusic Review by Heather Phares ⌊ 30 April 2020 ⌋ Score: ★★★½ 
↵    As its title suggests, Cover Two is the second collection of covers from Joan as Police Woman’s Joan Wasser (her first, 2009’s Cover, was initially sold only at her shows and on her website). Considering how versatile and distinctive Wasser’s own music is, it’s not surprising that she’s skilled at putting her own stamp on the work of widely different musicians. Even Cover Two’s cover is a rendition of sorts, channeling Loverboy’s Get Lucky and its iconic red leather jumpsuit. But what could be just a karaoke lark is much more in Wasser’s hands: Cover Two is musically nimble and reflects a songwriter’s appreciation of other songwriters.
↵    As on Cover, Wasser samples from an eclectic array of artists. She begins Cover Two with the challenge of reinterpreting Prince’s “Kiss,” transforming the original’s sudden flirtation into sultry, slow~burning foreplay that turns the line “women, not girls, rule my world” into a mantra. Later, she closes the album with a breezy vocal pop arrangement of Rizzo’s lament “There Are Worse Things I Could Do” from the musical Grease and a graceful, piano~driven interpretation of Gil Scott~Heron’s “Running.” In between, Cover Two’s highlights include a cozy version of the Strokes’ ’60s soul~pop homage “Under Control” where her voice dances over its caressing melody, and a minimalist reading of Michael McDonald’s “Keep Forgetting” that showcases all the nuances of her singing. On “Out of Time,” she reimagines one of Blur’s sci~fi ballads into something that could’ve appeared on Tapestry. By contrast, she focuses on her music’s experimental side on “Not the Way,” setting Cass McCombs’ searching lyrics to meditative drones and saxophones. Not everything on Cover Two is quite this successful. Wasser’s version of OutKast’s “Spread” is daring, but she ends up sounding like a guest on her own song, while the hypnotic cover of Talk Talk’s “Life’s What You Make It” may be the only moment here that doesn’t distinguish itself enough from the original.
↵    Much more frequently, however, Cover Two brings out the best in Joan as Police Woman’s music as she revisits some of her favorite songs.
