Rezension in englischer Sprache verfügbar

Cults made the most of the mystery surrounding them, turning the three songs they posted on their Bandcamp page into major-label record deal in just over a year. Of course, it helped that one of those songs was “Go Outside,” a piece of pop so sunny and wistful that it only made the question “who is this band?” even more pressing. However, the more important question was: could they sustain that kind of beauty over an entire album? The expectations for Cults were nearly as high as the level of secrecy around the band in its early days, and the revelation that the group revolved around New York-based guitarist Brian Oblivion and vocalist Madeline Follin did little to dispel the enigma. However, it does explain why Cults' sound is so focused: they explore and subvert early-‘60s pop, swathing Follin's girl group-ready vocals in trippy sounds and samples, channeling the unearthly quality of some of that era’s music and its chiaroscuro mix of innocence and mortality. Just how much Follin and Oblivion love ‘60s pop is evident in Cults' details, like the handclaps, pounding pianos, and splashy reverb on “Bad Things,” which sounds like Follin is singing in the rain. The best example of their music is still the song that started it all. “Go Outside” embellishes Follin’s seemingly simple wish to go out and live her life with sparkling glockenspiels on one hand and Jonestown leader Jim Jones saying “To me, death is not a fearful thing; it’s living that's treacherous” on the other. Nothing else on Cults is quite as striking, though the contrast of Follin's childlike voice and dark words casts her as a girl in trouble on “Never Heal Myself” and “Most Wanted,” where she sings, “what I most want is bad for me, I know.” With an approach this unique, Cults spend most of their debut album walking a fine line between distinctive and gimmicky, and between innocent and simplistic, and sometimes they stumble. The crystalline production occasionally lays too much bare in their music -- clarity and mystery are strange bedfellows -- yet “Never Saw the Point” and “Rave On” feel overwrought. And despite the shadows in their songs, Cults' sugary side prevails, becoming childish instead of childlike on “Oh My God”'s taunting melody. Oblivion's duets with Follin, “Abducted” and “Bumper,” undercut some of the album’s hyper-sweetness, and indeed Cults is a bit like a sugar rush: exhilarating at first, and then exhausting. Still, the sounds and ideas they play with are too intriguing to dismiss entirely, even if some of the mystery around them is gone. ~ Heather Phares

Nick Cave, das Unkraut auf der Starwiese

Nick Cave und seine Bad Seeds gelten nach wie vor als eines der produktivsten Abenteuer aus der Postpunk-Ära. Schon Ende der 80er Jahre erreichte die betörend tiefe Stimme des Australiers einen gewissen Höhepunkt unter all den wütenden Wiederaufnahmen, Klavierballaden und schweißgetränktem Rock’n’roll. Im Laufe der Jahre wurde der Cave immer mehr Crooner, irgendetwas zwischen einem punkigen Frank Sinatra und einem enthaltsamen Johnny Cash…

Heather Nova - Rückkehr zu den Wurzeln

Mit ihrer ersten Platte „Oyster“ gelang Singer/ Songwriterin Heather Nova 1994 der Durchbruch. Ihr Album „Pearl“ knüpft nun an dieses Werk an.

New Order, vom Keller auf die Tanzfläche

Wie wurde die dunkelste Band der Punk-Ära zu den Königen der Tanzfläche? New Order wurden in den frühen 80ern aus der Asche von Joy Division geboren, symbolisieren eine der ersten erfolgreichen Verbindungen zwischen Rock und Dance Music und schufen den makellosen Soundtrack des mürrischen Englands unter Margaret Thatcher.
