On their singles and EPs, the Horrors proved they'd done their post-punk and freakbeat homework. With their debut album, Strange House, they push their sound forward, distill it to its rawest essence, and give it a few funhouse mirror twists and turns for good measure. Almost half of the songs on the album already appeared on previous Horrors releases, but the ever-so-slightly cleaner production here gives more definition to their black-on-black sound. The band kicks off Strange House by revisiting their cover of Screaming Lord Sutch's "Jack the Ripper," which begins at a zombie-slow pace, then suddenly speeds up halfway through, transforming into a hurtling roller coaster of a song that makes a great introduction to Strange House's mix of campy humor, energy, and menace. With its dive-bombing noise barely held together by Faris Badwan's shouting and the faintest hint of a melody, "Sheena Is a Parasite" is still the Horrors' best and most radical song, although several other tracks here rival its black-hearted thrills. Once again, Spider Webb's vicious keyboards are the band's not-so-secret weapon, especially on the fantastic, strutting "She Is the New Thing," which blurs the line between girls and trends, flings and boredom, with macabre flair. On Strange House's wildest tracks, the Horrors channel their idol Joe Meek's love of wild sounds. "Thunderclaps" grafts galloping rhythms, twangy guitars, and chanted backing vocals together, Frankenstein-style, while "Little Victories" brandishes noisy onslaughts and turns them off just as quickly. The very end of the album gets even weirder and more deconstructed: "Gil Sleeping"'s woozy organs and jazzy drumming and "A Train Roars"' ominous, loping rhythms show that the Horrors are committed to pushing the boundaries of their sound, even if these experiments aren't quite as immediate as their more song-based work. The Horrors are unabashedly arty and stylish, but they're a great example of the kind of art-school band that lurks in the shadows of British rock (and of which there have been too few in the 2000s). If you like what the Horrors do, then Strange House is an album that can never be loud enough.

Les Grands Angles...
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 ».

Un nouveau monde entre électro et classique

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Depuis quelques années, tous ces noms en vogue ont été regroupés sous la vaste et imprécise étiquette “néoclassique”. A dire vrai, cette “scène” ressemble plutôt à une bande hétéroclite d’artistes fureteurs qui mêlent instruments classiques et production électronique – avec une connexion assumée aux pionniers du minimalisme américain – régalant les sens et ouvrant des perspectives des deux côtés de leur spectre musical.

Lhasa, l’inoubliable comète

En seulement trois albums studio, un live et trois tournées internationales, “Lhasa” de Sela a laissé une trace unique dans l’histoire de la musique populaire contemporaine. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” et “Lhasa” sont des œuvres distinctes et abouties qui dévoilent un univers étrange mais familier, à mi-chemin du rêve et de la réalité. Ces chansons claires obscures sont habitées par les sentiments sincères d’une artiste dont le chant à fleur de peau propose un pacte de complicité intime avec celui qui l’écoute. Il y a dans la vie de “Lhasa” de Sela tous les ingrédients d’une légende, les étapes d’un roman, les émotions d’une histoire belle et bouleversante.
