With Mareridt ("Nightmare"), her sophomore long-player, Danish-born singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Myrkur (Amalie Bruun) will hopefully leave the ranting and death threats of idiotic male black metal purists in the dust. Mareridt not only bridges the stylistic diversity of her three previous releases -- the 2015 album M and two EPS -- but extends their reach into her own creative space, which cannot easily be defined. The music is grounded in an intensely personal iconography -- musical, spiritual, cultural, psychological, emotional, and mythological. These atmospheric songs are also imbued with the intense influence of the natural world. Recorded in Copenhagen and Seattle with producer/engineer Randall Dunn (Wolves in the Throne Room, Chelsea Wolfe, Sunn 0))), etc.), these songs illuminate the most intimate aspects of Myrkur's interior dimensions. She plays piano, nykelharpa, violin, guitar, percussion, synth, and organ. She even does some "kulning" (a cow-herding call from the Swedish folk tradition that she's mastered). The title refers to a period where she was nearly crippled by sleep paralysis induced by nightmares. She learned to confront them by obsessively writing them down, then illustrating them musically. The title track commences with a drone and kulning as thunder rumbles ominously. Accompanying herself on nykelharpa, with echo and ambience pervasively filling the backdrop, she intones the stuff of her nightmares, only to follow it with an explosion: The most overt engagement with black metal on the set is its first single, "Måneblôt," complete with its blastbeats and growled vocals. However, these are contrasted with gorgeous folk fiddle, stacked, soaring soprano vocals answering the screams, and a choral layer of chants that pour in from the margins. They stream light into the darkness and combat it with the primal force of what Bruun details in her lyrics. If Kate Bush decided to pursue slow, chugging doom metal, she might choose to cover the spiritually twisted "The Serpent." Underscored by ancient myth and confessional doubt, it lays bare the protagonist's psyche. A nearly processional gothic soundscape drives "Crown," a love song to the person or thing that nearly destroyed you. Its hunted, vulnerable beauty is nearly unbearable. Wolfe appears in duet on "Funeral," riven with sweeping synth and strings, doomy, distorted guitars, and elegiac tom and kick drums. Its lyric seemingly counters "Crown"'s -- "...So I will be there at your funeral/I've been waiting for this day/So I'll be wearing white...I find my peace/When you're buried underneath...." -- by practicing surrender, grieving, and ultimately accepting the calm that arrives when discovering that certain traumatic situations cannot be altered or escaped. The set's finest moment is "Ulvinde," where it seems that Loreena McKennitt, Dead Can Dance, folk, black metal, and ambient music become one in Mykur's ambitious musicality. Mareridt is a work of atavistic mystery, unflinching honesty, and balance. It embraces everything from horror and beauty to the sacred and profane; its creator has encountered them all within, faced and accepted them, and ultimately woven them into the fabric of her being as music. ~ Thom Jurek

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.

Alice Cooper n’évite pas le danger

Le parcours d’Alice Cooper est avant un cas exceptionnel de dédoublement de personnalité. Comme dans “L’Étrange Cas du docteur Jekyll et de Mister Hyde”, le chanteur Vincent Furnier s’est abandonné à la domination du showman Alice Cooper. Mais de son propre aveu, celui qui parle toujours d’Alice à la troisième personne dans les interviews reste un homme tout à fait simple et normal en privé, loin de cette scène où il a multiplié excès et provocations. Tout au long de ses cinquante-quatre ans de carrière, on pourra en outre déceler une certaine schizophrénie dans ses nombreux changements de style. Si on lui attribue l’invention du shock rock, il a touché à tout, ou presque, avec plus ou moins de réussite, de la pop aux prémices du hard-rock en passant par le heavy metal, la new wave ou l’indus…
