Who knows what did the trick -- maybe it was just jumping labels to Touch & Go -- but when Girls Against Boys released Venus Luxure, it was clear that the quartet had really turned into something spectacular. Avoiding the clichés of early-'90s indie rock for its own surly, charismatic edge, Girls Against Boys here kicked out the jams like nobody's business. Ted Niceley helped out Janney with the recording, and together they got an amazing sound out of the band, its now thoroughly bass-heavy approach (Janney was now specifically credited with the instrument along with Temple) brawling like a bastard. A comparison to Flipper could be made, but instead of the generally slow, death-march tempos of that act, Girls Against Boys always keep moving, a dark death dance. McCloud, happily, was now a much more distinct singer, his voice deeper but still attractively ragged and right, whispering or spitting out sometimes cryptic lyrics about emotional confrontation and the vagaries of life. His nods to '60s lounge culture -- a thematic fascination that would grow even stronger over time -- crop up at points here, even if the whole atmosphere is more like Sinatra mean drunk and out for blood, lots of it. The band comes up with music that sometimes echoes it as well; imagine it's midnight at a bar, the lights are low and red, and mean-looking guys in the corner stare menacingly -- that's the spirit informing songs like the slow, threatening "Satin Down" and "Get Down." Janney's abilities on keyboards, meanwhile -- check the abbreviated, looped drones on "Go Be Delighted" -- gave the band an even further edge, unsettled and certainly not like many other bands in its general milieu. Add in some full-on rockers like "Let Me Come Back" and the focused snap of "Bulletproof Cupid," and the result is a stone-cold classic.

Les Grands Angles...
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.

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.

Kraftwerk, 50 ans d'avance

Groupe de musique électronique le plus influent de l’histoire, Kraftwerk, fondé par le duo Ralf Hütter et Florian Schneider, qui s’est éteint le 6 mai 2020 des suites d’un cancer, a toujours été en avance sur son temps. En avance sur la technologie, sur la composition, sur les performances scéniques, les Allemands ont prouvé au grand public que les machines étaient aussi capables d’émotions et ouvert la voie pour la techno, la new wave et même le hip-hop.
