Mon expérience professionnelle m’a montré depuis bien longtemps que dans le domaine de la musique, les goûts et les couleurs sont parfois bien tranchés. Parmi les mélomanes, il y a de nombreuses catégories… Il y a ceux qui n’aiment que la musique ancienne et la musique contemporaine considérant tout l’intervalle comme peu digne d’intérêt. Il y a ceux qui n’aiment que le romantisme, ceux qui n’aiment que Mozart, ceux qui sont fanatiques de musique de chambre, d’orchestres symphoniques, de musique sacrée ou chorale, du répertoire de l’orgue, du piano, du violon ou de l’opéra. Il y a ceux qui sont fans des vedettes et les suivent comme on suit un sportif, il y a ceux qui vont au concert, ceux qui n’y vont pas, ceux qui achètent des disques, ceux qui détestent cela, … bref, comme ont dit, il y en a pour tous les goûts.
The xx are four 20-year-olds from South London who make predominantly slow, furtive pop music, mostly about sex. They are also one of the stranger recipients of UK hype in recent memory. They have no calling-card song; members of the Pitchfork staff have ID'd no fewer than four songs ("Basic Space", "Crystalised", "Islands", "Infinity") as "the one." They are not fashion plates, nor likely to be.
"Your Father's Basement" is part 400 Blows , part Ice Storm , but with the stakes of neither. It's a half-remembered, more-than-half-literary coming-of-age recollection full of concrete details: searching for porno mags, prank calling, knowing where your friend's dad keeps his liquor, crushing on an older sister's friend, watching for bikini tops coming loose in the pool, blasting Eric B. on a rickety jambox. Recording again as Ola Podrida , soundtrack composer David Wingo doesn't fashion these details into a story so much as use them-- and the chiming guitars, the establishing bass line, the grainy restraint of his vocals-- to conjure the feeling of teenage boredom and freedom.
Hudson Mohawke is not afraid to go lowbrow. That shouldn't come as a surprise, though, since his name would appear to come from Bruce Willis' one and only attempt at screenwriting . Likewise, "Rising 5" , from his upcoming Warp Records debut Butter , is smooth and sleazy-- the kind of track that demands to be accompanied by a mai tai, a fur vest, and a bikini-carwash poster. On his Polyfolk Dance EP, Mohawke programmed breaks that sounded like they had been through the blender-- glitchy and sample heavy music not entirely unlike that of his Warp Records label-mate Flying Lotus . But on "Rising 5" Mohawke seems to be after something a little groovier than that. He juggles lush pads with glistening arpeggios and some Prince-worthy one-finger synthesizer melodies.
Hockey Hockey are individually from all over the United States, via band stints in Los Angeles, Spokane and Portland To quote a line from I Wanna Be Black all the band s witty, biting lyrics are written by Ben everyone s making dance music now true, but we started in 2002 . When we started making music says Ben, we wanted to make music that people could have fun to at the parties we played.
We've already blogged a lot about all the Michael Jackson tributes that have popped on the Internet since his passing, so why not focus, for a change, on the marks of affection and support the King of Pop received while he was still alive ? Here is the video for a really nice track by british duo The Mitchell Brothers , actually released in 2007 ! Simply named "Michael Jackson" , it has been remixed by UK's dance sensation Calvin Harris . Nice one. --- On ne compte plus les hommages rendus au King Of Pop depuis sa disparition tragique en juin dernier.
D'obscures et populaires pensées prédisent que les hommes seront un jour à la solde des machines. Mais même dans ce décor futuriste, aseptisé et déshumanisé, l'homme reste au centre de la création : les sons proviennent de bouches d'hommes, contrôlées par leurs copains, du genre humain également. La machine ne reste alors qu'une interface. Joli paradoxe ! Ce film réalisé par NangLee est tout simplement éblouissant et se passe de commentaire.
Frida Hyvรถnen is not the first singer to reinterpret Judee Sill's debut single from 1971 , but she is almost certainly the best. Though Warren Zevon, the Hollies , and Rachael Yagamata have each recorded notable covers of the song, their versions are all marred by vocal performances that are simply not up to the task of conveying the fluttering cadences of Sill's melody. Hyvรถnen is not only capable of singing the melody as written, but she arguably sings it better than its author, who possessed a lovely if modest singing voice. Hyvรถnen's performance is arresting from the first note, with her lightly reverbed alto investing the tune and its lyrics with a heart-melting poignancy without tipping into sappy melodrama.
Production-wise, "Despicable Dogs" is a little masked and faint (how bedroom), but it tugs at you so sweetly and sorrowfully that it begins to feel overwhelmingly huge. "Just Like Honey" huge. Small Black is the Long Island duo of Josh Kolenik and Ryan Heyner, and they make the kind of hazy lo-fi we've been hearing a lot this summer (live, they add Pitchfork.tv contributors Juan Pieczanski and Jeff Curtin to the mix).
In a day where Hot Topic peddles guyliner to millions of male teenage mallrats, it's hard to imagine a time when glam-rock was truly shocking. But there remains one gender-bending device whose provocative, polarizing power remains undiminished: the falsetto-- a sound that tends to elicit both laughter and skepticism, if not outright hostility. Still, it remains a highly effective weapon in the endless war against safe, overly earnest indie-- and few bands brandish it so wantonly as UK art-pop quartet Wild Beasts. On the band's striking 2008 debut, Limbo, Panto , frontman Hayden Thorpe unleashed his shrill, glass-shattering shrieks as a means to project both the vulnerability and depravity of his sexually frustrated protagonists, and he didn't care if he went hoarse in the process (you can practically hear his vocal cords disintegrate on the galloping single "Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants").
Rock n' Roll
Vous n'imaginez pas l'orgasme sonore que j'ai éprouvé à la première écoute de " I Start To Run " de ce trio salement rock'n'roll; un des seuls groupe qu'on peut aujourd'hui taper comme groupe rock. Leur style est un garage choux fleurs qui suinte la négligence adolescente où vont se caler un peu de punk, un peu de psyché tourbillonnant,un peu de hip hop claqué. Un marasme aussi brut & limpide que violent & crachoteux. Et c'est souvent sur les chansons les plus simples qu'on claque le meilleur trip. Alors go on.
