The duo behind England's Alpha -- Andy Jenks and Corin Dingley -- combines groovy synth sounds, live string arrangements, acid jazz, and torchy flair to create the atmospheric lounge numbers found on their second album, The Impossible Thrill. Three singers -- Wendy Stubbs, Helen White, and Martin Barnard -- all lend their vocal stylings to the disc's 11 airy confections, which recall Portishead and Massive Attack (who, incidentally, own Melankolic, the label to which Alpha is signed). There is no hidden agenda here -- what listeners get is about an hour's worth of sublime mood music, England-style. To that end, Alpha is at the top of their craft, delivering trance-inducing songs, note for note. The three featured singers must be equally credited, because without their contribution, Alpha's songs may have easily lacked distinction. In fact, it's due largely in part to the hypnotic and ethereal sounds of Stubbs, White, and Barnard that comparisons to Portishead and others can be drawn. All players combined, Alpha successfully continues on the path pioneered by their forebears and adds their own unique imprint to this style of music. The Impossible Thrill is woozy, trance-like, and sublime, and its thrill is far from impossible. An enjoyable listen, indeed. ~ Liana Jonas

Santana, le lézard de Tijuana

Une place au panthéon du rock assurée dès ses débuts avec sa performance ensorcelante à Woodstock, une dizaine de Grammy Awards sous le bras et des millions de disques écoulés grâce à sa renaissance en star de la latin pop, des featurings plus prestigieux les uns que les autres… Santana fait partie de ces artistes qui ont tout raflé : la reconnaissance du public, de la critique et de ses pairs. Portrait d’un artiste comblé qui enchaîne les mues comme un lézard.

Bossa-nova, la vague éternelle

Depuis sa création à la fin des années 1950, la bossa-nova est devenue un ingrédient indispensable à la riche palette musicale brésilienne. Cette musique au fort pouvoir évocateur a conquis des artistes du monde entier et révélé des musiciens de premier ordre dont les compositions sont devenues des classiques.

Tim Burton en 10 albums

Qu’il tourne en prises de vues réelles ou en stop motion, Tim Burton a construit en plus de trente ans un monde cinématographique où le merveilleux poétique côtoie le gothique et l’humour macabre. À quelques exceptions près, c’est le compositeur Danny Elfman qui l’a épaulé dans cette aventure, formant un duo symbiotique : sans les images de Burton, la musique de Elfman n’aurait pas la même saveur et vice versa, ce qu’ils ont encore prouvé en 2019 avec le bouleversant “Dumbo”.
