The first two albums from Kiwi Jr. were like excitable puppies, leaping all over the place. On the Toronto band's latest, though, they've chilled out a bit. First single "Night Vision" was a total surprise: darker but no less vibrant, it's spacey, synth-driven and chillier than their usual high-noon heat. Singer Jeremy Gaudet has said that after writing this song—with lyrics like "It might take another year/ It might take a shotgunned beer/ It might take a rifled deer"—they shaped the rest of the album around it: "A lot of the images in the lyrics are of teenagers driving around … putting their parents' car in the ditch, etc. But the idea at the center of the song is that of working up the nerve to make a big decision. Like a boxer getting pumped up before a fight." "The Extra Sees the Film" also fits that template of cool distance, both in melody and Gaudet's vividly skewering imagery. "There's a soft opening, she'll be there if you wanna stop by/ Flirting with the human scorpion jacket from Drive/ He's a haircut aiming a jar of gin/ And he talks about Los Angeles, that's a cue for you to jump in." And while the band, and Gaudet in particular, are still drawing inspiration from Pavement—"Clerical Sleep" liberally borrows the "ba-ba-ba-da-ba" of Pavement's "Debris Slide" and runs it through a '60s filter—the singer somehow sounds a little less like Stephen Malkmus this time; not as nasal, and switching up his phrasings. A couple of other new things really jump out. There's a love of carnival music, which is fully embraced on the Petula Clark-ish "Unspeakable Things" and joyous-furious pop-punk "Downtown Area Blues," and given a twisted makeover on "Contract Killers." That track also delivers a delightful turn of phrase: "By the time wicker had been wove … all the liquor was gone and we drove home." (You can imagine it used in a mob movie: "The wicker's been woven." The fix is in!) "Parasite II" uses bouncy, swirly synth to support lyrics of great denial ("There's gotta be another man in the house who's spending all the money/ Someone down in the laundry room keeps shrinking all my shirts"). And both doom-chasing "Kennedy Curse" and closer "The Masked Singer" weave in happy-sad '80s synths that swerve and swoon and nod at The Cure and Modern English. The latter, clocking in at an epic six minutes, carries one of Kiwi Jr.'s prettiest melodies as it weirdly namechecks game shows, including So You Think You Can Dance. © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz

Los Grandes Angulares...
Y Jack White acudió al rescate del rock

Tanto en los años White Stripes como ahora en solitario, Jack White no ha dejado de cortocircuitar los modos del rock más trillado. Este genio siempre envuelto en mil proyectos nos hace un vaticinio: el rock está de vuelta, y regresa con fuerza. Mientras tanto, no estará de más analizar el fenómeno en que se ha convertido White.

Y Nirvana se cargó el rock…

Hace 34 años irrumpía Nirvana, una inesperada sacudida punk a finales del siglo XX. Carrera relámpago, éxito mundial, hordas de fans y epílogo trágico para un fenómeno planetario. El caso es que tal vez la banda de Kurt Cobain haya sido la última de la historia del rock. El último fenómeno dentro de ese género musical capaz de unir a una generación, y eso por no decir su último gran mito.

Kraftwerk, 50 años por delante de su época

Kraftwerk, el grupo de música electrónica más influyente de la historia, fundado por Ralf Hütter y Florian Schneider, fallecido el 6 de mayo de 2020 de cáncer, siempre ha estado por delante de su tiempo. Por delante en términos de tecnología, de composición, de presencia en escena. A la vez, los alemanes no han dejado de demostrarle al gran público que las máquinas son capaces de despertar emociones, abriendo camino al techno, la new wave e incluso al hip-hop.
