A pairing of Ride's first two EPs, Smile is a batch of eight muddy, shambling wrecks that run dangerously close to obscuring great pop songs. In fact, much of Smile makes My Bloody Valentine's blurry Isn't Anything sound as polished as a Steely Dan record. What makes the tunes remarkable is the spirit of the band, along with a complementary mix. The band probably knew exactly what they were doing, but wanted to sound clueless. It's the sound of four art students losing themselves in their record collections, wanting to sound naïve and fresh but well-studied. Mark Gardener sounds like he couldn't sing to save his life on "Chelsea Girl," but it's no matter. The relentless rush of Loz Colbert's drums and distorted guitars of Gardener and Andy Bell carry the song, topped off by a nifty wah-wah climax. Though the mid-tempo, chugging "Drive Blind" could be taken literally, it could double as a metaphor for throwing oneself headlong into a relationship -- closing your eyes and not caring if a brick wall or cliff is up a mile ahead. The remainder is filled out with sticky riffs and melodies which avoid sounding like the standard pop fair. It sounds a bit amateurish, and Gardener and Bell hadn't quite found their footing vocally. Nonetheless, Smile brought something new to the table, and the U.K. audience and more adventurous U.S. fans clutched onto the sound for dear life. Rightfully so. [Oddly, Smile's mastering comes from the vinyl versions of the EPs. If you can track down the CD versions of the EPs separately, you'll notice a difference in quality. Also, the disc was remastered and reissued by Ignition in the U.K. in 2001; unlike the other releases in the campaign, the new version has no bonuses.]

Les Grands Angles...
Et Nirvana tua le rock

En 1987 naissait Nirvana, l’embardée punk la plus inattendue de la fin du XXe siècle. Carrière éclair, tubes éternels, engouement planétaire et épilogue tragique : et si la bande de Kurt Cobain n’était autre que le dernier grand groupe de l’histoire du rock ? A l’occasion des 30 ans de leur album culte “Nevermind”, retour sur l’histoire d’un phénomène générationnel sans pareil.

Les Black Keys en 10 chansons

Dès 2001, les Black Keys ont rappelé à la Terre entière d’où venait vraiment le blues, virant tout gras apparent et solos superflus. Du sauvage, du brutal, du minimaliste et du cru joué seulement à deux. Un style unique que Dan Auerbach et Patrick Carney ont réussi à faire évoluer sur deux décennies sans jamais vendre leur âme au diable, invariablement posté en embuscade au carrefour du delta du Mississippi. La preuve en dix chansons.

Jack White au secours du rock

Des White Stripes à son virage en solitaire, Jack White aura sonné le glas d’un rock faisandé. Avec "Seven Nation Army", le génie aux mille projets prophétise : la relève du rock revient en force. En attendant, retour sur le phénomène White.
