The Shins' first full-length is a definitive indie rock album of the 2000s not just because of its thoughtful, tuneful songs, but also because of the vivid portrait it painted of indie culture. After the high irony of Pavement and other '90s standard bearers, indie rock began moving into more emotionally forthright territory. Oh, Inverted World is the sound of realizing there's more to life than being a smart-aleck -- but also not being ready to open up completely. The album's first song, "Caring Is Creepy," sums up the typical indie response to emotional situations with its title alone, but it also introduces James Mercer's delicate, dryly witty take on that attitude. Hyper-literate lyrics like "It's a luscious mix of words and tricks" suggest someone who's better with words than with feelings, yet Mercer's high, wavering tones -- which are as awkward as they are beautiful -- prove otherwise. Caring might be creepy, but it's hard to avoid; the rest of Oh, Inverted World chronicles this post-ironic vulnerability, wrapping it in jangly guitar pop that echoes the Kinks, Zombies, and Beach Boys. This may not be the most innovative sound, but it makes Mercer's boy-meets-girl, boy-runs-away, boy-comes-back, girl-runs-away travails all the more familiar and relatable. And, of course, just how good the album's songs are can't be overlooked. "Know Your Onion" practically jumps out of its skin, bursting with British Invasion riffs and angst that goes way beyond adolescence; "New Slang" tempers a yearning that curdles into bitterness with a beautiful melody and a ghostly falsetto coda. More importantly, all of Oh, Inverted World's songs hang together in an immensely satisfying way. "Weird Divide" is a backyard Pet Sounds; its winding melody channels that point in the summer when it's too hot to care much about anything, punctuating it with percussion that evokes incessant sprinklers. An airy feel runs through the album, from "Girl on the Wing"'s bird imagery and pristine harmonies to "Girl Inform Me"'s giddiness to "One by One All Day"'s psychedelic coda. As things wind down, "Your Algebra"'s spooky chamber pop and "The Past and the Pending"'s acoustic musing foreshadow the experiments The Shins undertook on later albums. Oh, Inverted World is so full of ideas and emotions, and so fully realized, that it’s hard to believe it's just 33 minutes long. Whether or not the album lives up to the breathless "It’ll change your life!" claims made about it in Garden State, the less ironic direction of 2000s indie begins here.

In your panoramas...
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.

Tom Waits, los años de Asylum

Antes de convertirse en una suerte de Howlin’Wolf, punk de cabaret el personaje de Tom Waits surgirá bajo la forma de un compositor obsesionado con el jazz, las melodías de Broadway y la Generación Beat de Kerouac. Entre 1973 y 1980, el californiano grabó para el sello Asylum seis álbumes de estudio y uno en vivo, recientemente reeditado y remasterizado en Hi-Res 24-Bit. Una vuelta a los inicios tan caóticos como estimulantes de los más seductores vagabundos del Dharma.

John Carpenter, imagen y sonido

John Carpenter pertenece a esa categoría de directores que también componen la música de sus películas. Con motivo de la edición de Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, álbum para el cual ha vuelto a grabar sus temas más conocidos, resulta obligatorio revisar la doble trayectoria de este maestro del cine de terror y de acción.
