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

Le Prince des années 80

Dans la famille funk, Prince Rogers Nelson fut un genre à lui seul. En 40 ans de carrière, il a réussi à mêler l’héritage des pères fondateurs (James Brown, Sly Stone et George Clinton) à des influences aussi bien rock’n’roll qu’électro voire jazz. Un groove exubérant et bluffant qui brilla essentiellement entre 1978 et 1988…

Des musiciens connaissant leurs classiques qu’ils embarquent sur tous les types de terrains possibles et dont voici 10 albums symbolisant l’éclectisme salvateur.

La britpop en 10 albums

« Si le but du punk était de se débarrasser des hippies, le nôtre est d’en finir avec le grunge. » Lorsque Damon Albarn assène cette phrase en 1993, l’Angleterre s’apprête à reprendre sa place sur un échiquier musical envahi par Seattle avec le grunge et Nirvana. Profondément liée à la vie politique et l’identité locale, la pop britannique se révèle au moment où Tony Blair et le New Labour entrent en scène. Le romantisme anglais redevient attractif par rapport à l’identité américaine, jugée trop creuse outre-Manche. Place à la « Cool Britannia ».
