Arriving after a Steve Albini-produced trove of mopey wonder (1991's Seamonsters) and a collection of relatively more lighthearted singles (1992's Hit Parade), the Wedding Present's fourth album Watusi found David Gedge and company hitting a particularly brilliant stride in terms of songwriting and creative development alike. Produced by Seattle personality Steve Fisk in a time when "grunge" was a breathless buzzword, there's some rock muscle happening on tracks like "So Long, Baby" and "Shake It" that veers more toward flannel-friendly guitar tones than C-86 fuzz, but the jangly melancholy of the uptempoed "Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah" finds the perfect balance between the two, with booming drums locking in with spindly guitar lines and electrified organ. Tracks like "Spangle" tap into the band's trademark way with syrupy slow songs of crushing heartbreak, this time supported by the scratchy tones of Fisk's church organ drum machine. Watusi is one of the more dynamic Wedding Present albums, with both songs and production stretching into less predictable territory, presenting Gedge’s by now familiar ruminations on difficult love and disintegrating relationships with an extra dose of daring. The band's straying from the formula is at its best in forms as divergent as the long fits of Velvets-like guitar squall on "Catwoman," and the tender, a cappella back and forth between Gedge and Beat Happening vocalist Heather Lewis on "Click Click," the album’s finest and most impacting moment.

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 Beatles en 12 albums

Sept années, à peine, passées en studio. Un héritage incommensurable dont l'influence demeure intacte. Les Beatles sont un cas unique dans l'histoire de la musique pop(ulaire). Le miroir musical des 60’s, ère de transition majeure. Avec les Fab Four – aidés par Bob Dylan outre-Atlantique –, le rock quitte son adolescence insouciante pour entrer dans l'âge adulte. Les quatre garçons dans le vent naïfs et pétillants de Liverpool vont se transformer en artistes indépendants. Une vie qui défile en parallèle de leur discographie.

The Doors, l’orchestre de Jim Morrison

Il y a cinquante ans, le 3 juillet 1971, Jim Morrison s’éteignait mystérieusement dans une baignoire parisienne, laissant orphelins ses trois partenaires, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger et John Densmore, qui ont œuvré sans relâche durant six ans pour transposer ses rêves en musique.
