Mika tombe le masque : après avoir effectué un long périple américain pour puiser dans ses racines, il a fini par retrouver Michael Holbrook (vrai nom de l’interprète des tubes Relax, Take It Easy et Grace Kelly). Certes, Mika reste fidèle aux fioritures musicales colorées et exubérantes qui ont fait sa réputation dans les années 2000, mais l’introspection inhérente à ce cinquième album engendre, par la force des choses, des sentiments intenses qui ne sont pas toujours agréables à regarder. Ainsi, il n’hésite pas à aborder ce qu’il peut y avoir de plus négatif chez lui, comme la jalousie, dans Dear Jealousy, sur une production très 90's qui évoque les grands moments de Savage Garden. Dans San Remo, malgré la forme très estivale et lounge, Mika évoque le regard trouble de l’adolescent timide qu’il était concernant sa sexualité. Quant au morceau Tiny Love, fresque lorgnant le style de Freddie Mercury, il parle du sentiment amoureux dans tout ce qu’il peut avoir de grand, mais aussi de minuscule.

My Name Is Michael Holbrook est également un hommage vibrant aux femmes. Celles de sa famille tout d’abord, dans Blue. De façon tragiquement corollaire, la ballade Paloma est dédiée à la sœur de Mika, décédée en 2010. Et enfin, Platform Ballerinas encourage les femmes à vivre comme elles l’entendent : « Dancing like she loves it with her best dress on/Spinning, jumping, messing up her hair, but it doesn't matter. » L’album comporte donc une bonne dose d’espoir malgré tout, à l’image de I Went to Hell Last Night, un titre qui affirme que Dieu se glisse partout, y compris dans les moments les plus sombres de la vie. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

New Order, de la cave au dancefloor

Comment le groupe mancunien le plus sombre de l’ère punk est devenu maître du dancefloor ? Né sur les cendres de Joy Division au début des années 80, New Order symbolise l’une des premières unions réussies entre rock’n’roll et dance music. L’impeccable BO de la morose Angleterre thatchérienne.

Nebraska, quand Bruce Springsteen se met à nu

En 1982, le Boss, au sommet de sa gloire bodybuildée, prend tout le monde à contre-pied avec “Nebraska”, un album totalement acoustique et épuré à l’extrême. Un chef-d’œuvre intemporel baignant dans l’écho et la réverbération. Un disque qui narre l’Amérique de la marge et que beaucoup considèrent comme son plus grand.

Cap au Cap-Vert

Depuis que les Portugais ont annexé cet ensemble d’îles désertes au XVe siècle pour en faire un centre de regroupement d’esclaves, les populations noire et portugaise s’y sont mélangées au fil du temps pour donner naissance à une langue et des musiques inédites – chaque île développant plus ou moins son propre style –, transformant les sols arides du Cap-Vert en inépuisable réservoir à talents.
