"Egoli" is the Xhosa word for Johannesburg -- translated into English it means "city of gold" -- which is where the collective Africa Express recorded this album in a matter of weeks at the dawn of 2019. Like the five previous albums by Africa Express, Damon Albarn acts as a ringleader in the shadows, omnipresent and largely invisible as he conducts an ever-shifting lineup of South African musicians through lithe electro grooves and spacy pop. Everything on Egoli defies easy categorization. The music doesn't follow conventional paths, either by the standards of African or Western music, and it's a reflection of how every musician involved in Africa Express is aiming at music that crosses cultures. The music is usually anchored in danceable rhythms that slyly evade both hip-hop and mbaqanga clichés, but Egoli also slides into lovely folkie territory: witness the delicate duet between Zolani Mahola and Gruff Rhys on "Absolutely Everything Is Pointing Towards the Light." Generally, Egoli bends toward joyous exuberance, music that sustains itself through its spontaneity and its open heart. The immediacy makes Egoli an instantly inviting listen but it's the camaraderie that makes it a nourishing one. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Pedro Almodóvar dans le groove

Pedro Almodóvar a toujours accordé une place de choix à la musique dans ses films, que ce soit à travers des morceaux préexistants ou des compositions originales. Il reprend ainsi à son compte cette réplique d’un de ses premiers films : « c'est la musique qui dit la vérité sur la vie ».

Objectif Lune : The Dark Side of the Moon

Album phare dans la discographie de Pink Floyd, “The Dark Side of the Moon” est le fruit d’une élaboration relativement lente qui remonte pratiquement à 1968. “A Saucerful of Secrets” (le morceau phare de l’album éponyme) en est, pour Nick Mason, le point de départ. Derrière, “Ummagumma” laissait s’exprimer des personnalités qu’il allait falloir amalgamer pour décrocher la timbale. Pink Floyd poursuivit sa quête du disque idéal avec “Meddle”, sur lequel le groupe accentuait sa maîtrise du travail du studio, et “Atom Heart Mother”, avant d’atteindre le nirvana avec “The Dark Side of the Moon”, dont la perfection ne s’est jamais érodée quarante-cinq ans après sa sortie.

Lhasa, l’inoubliable comète

En seulement trois albums studio, un live et trois tournées internationales, “Lhasa” de Sela a laissé une trace unique dans l’histoire de la musique populaire contemporaine. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” et “Lhasa” sont des œuvres distinctes et abouties qui dévoilent un univers étrange mais familier, à mi-chemin du rêve et de la réalité. Ces chansons claires obscures sont habitées par les sentiments sincères d’une artiste dont le chant à fleur de peau propose un pacte de complicité intime avec celui qui l’écoute. Il y a dans la vie de “Lhasa” de Sela tous les ingrédients d’une légende, les étapes d’un roman, les émotions d’une histoire belle et bouleversante.
