Take the dripping, Gothic croak of Queensrÿche's Geoff Tate, mix it with a good handful of Godspeed You Black Emperor!'s reverby distortion, throw in a macabre fascination with history, and you've got the debut mini-album from Leedsian space rockers ILiKETRAiNS. Progress Reform is, if anything, an ambitious project. Songs here attempt, among other things, to chart the course of Robert F. Scott's doomed race to the South Pole ("Terra Nova") and examine the life of chess master Bobby Fischer ("A Rook House for Bobby"). But for all their gorgeous waves of distortion and grand lyrical ambitions, ILiKETRAiNS are a one-trick pony. Lush, reverb-heavy arrangements follow one after the other, providing little else than a black velvet backdrop for David Martin's lugubrious storytelling. This approach would be just fine if the stories were compelling; unfortunately, this isn't the case. You know you're in trouble when "A Rook House for Bobby" opens up with (surprise!) "I just want to play chess with you," or when Scott is forced to utter a boneheaded rhetorical question like, "How could I have led these men to their demise?" These lyrics are so self-serious, not to mention so obvious, that they become parodies of themselves. There's not one twitch of humor or irony in "Stainless Steel," but there's something hysterical about the way Martin utters, "Please don't go in the kitchen, that's where the knives are..." ILiKETRAiNS are a Serious Band, and their humorless attitude does them in. [Beggars Banquet reissued the CD in 2007.]

Hip-hop : 8 producteurs de légende

Peut-on imaginer Guru sans DJ Premier et De La Soul sans Prince Paul ? Derrière chaque rappeur iconique et chaque groupe culte, il y a un producteur visionnaire qui a appris de ses aînés et développé son propre son. Du pionnier Marley Marl, qui posa les bases de la production moderne en exploitant les capacités des premiers samplers, à la comète J Dilla qui, avant sa mort à 32 ans, a réussi à durablement imprimer sa marque, en passant par la révolution sonique ourdie par le Bomb Squad et la domination sans partage sur la West Coast de Dr Dre, tour d’horizon des pontes de studio qui ont régné pendant trente ans sur le monde du hip-hop.

The Meters, le funk “made in New Orleans”

Oubliez James Brown, Sly Stone et George Clinton car les vrais maîtres du funk, ce sont eux : les Meters ! Retour sur l’histoire du gang le plus groovy de La Nouvelle-Orléans et dont la musique a été samplée à foison par quasiment tous les rappeurs.

Le rock progressif en 10 albums

Au cours des 40 dernières années, le rock progressif a connu le sommet des charts, le sérieux des pupitres ou les honneurs de l’appellation art rock, élargissant son lexique à travers des influences insaisissables, toujours en reconfiguration. Si, aujourd’hui, le genre n’est plus revendiqué avec la même ferveur qu’hier, on peut toujours observer son empreinte chez des artistes allant de Tool à Kanye West. Qobuz vous présente dix albums majeurs du prog rock, dont le rayonnement n’est pas près de faiblir.
