With the corporate rock cognoscenti frothing at the mouth to sign the next Nirvana, in 1991, a seemingly nerdy band from New York by the name of Helmet were about to set the world on fire -- at least on paper. Seemingly overnight, the Amphetamine Reptile faves had a fat check in their pockets and an astounding major-label debut by the name of Meantime. Eschewing Cobain's neo-punk power pop instincts, Helmet opted instead for a more a minimalist approach, whereby rhythmic tension over 4/4 melodies reigned supreme. Now poised to step into their role as future darlings of a sound that can only be described as bludgeoning agro-punk atonal rock, the band was propelled by a massive hype campaign and heralded as East Coast tastemakers du jour. But for all its accolades (mostly well deserved), Meantime's commercial success sadly fell short of expectation, and, by '94, Helmet was giving it another try with Betty -- its second effort for Interscope. Label pressure notwithstanding, the album had a lot more riding on it than even perhaps Hamilton was willing to admit. Lacking some of the tightly focused ferocity of their previous release, Betty appears to be an almost too well thought out affair, and, ultimately, its songs miss out on some of the discreet melodic accents which had served to underpin even the most bludgeoning noise-fests on Meantime. Songs like "Wilma's Rainbow," "Biscuits for Smut," and especially "Milquetoast" have their moments, but don't quite live up to expectations. And although Helmet's tuned down, stop-go-stop dynamic (originally pioneered by New Yorkers Prong) would go on to influence hundreds of up-and-coming acts, their complete lack of image or star quality (a key ingredient to Cobain's magnetism, as much as he himself despised it) would play a major role in eventually doing them in. Betty initiated a commercial spiral for the quartet that not even the return-to-form and progress displayed by 1997's massive sounding Aftertaste could reverse.

Los Grandes Angulares...
Los Beatles en 12 álbumes

No dedicaron más que siete años a los estudios de grabación. Pero su extraordinaria herencia permanece inalterable. Los Beatles son un caso único dentro de la historia de la música pop(ular). Un reflejo sonoro de los sesenta, era de grandes cambios. Con los Fab Four –ayudados por Bob Dylan al otro lado del Atlántico– el rock abandona su adolescencia e insustancialidad para entrar en la edad adulta. Esos cuatro ingenuos melenudos, salidos de un Liverpool gris pero efervescente, se transformarían en artistas sin igual. Sus vidas transcurren en paralelo a su discografía.

Moby, y se hizo la luz

No hay muchos artistas como Moby que hayan pasado del punk al techno/house y al pop, sin dejar de componer música ambient. Con motivo de la publicación de Reprise, el álbum que celebra sus 30 años de carrera, Qobuz echa un vistazo a la trayectoria de un artista que ha tenido múltiples contratiempos antes de encontrar finalmente un camino artístico más tranquilo.

Betty Davis, la pantera del funk

Se adelantó a divas negras como Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse o Janelle Monáe. Desaparecida de los rádares hace años, Betty Davis fue precursora de las soul sisters más sensuales. La diosa de ébano funk por excelencia. Y que, por otra parte, descubriría las bondades de los instrumentos eléctricos a un tal Miles Davis, con quien estuvo casada un tiempo. Hablamos de ti, Betty.
