Skying boasts a song called “Moving Further Away,” and that’s exactly what the Horrors do on their third album. Neither a return to Strange House's goth-punk nor a simple continuation of Primary Colours' acclaimed Krautrock/shoegaze fusion, this time the band sets the dials of its way-back machine for the mid- and late ‘80s, sampling post-punk luminaries such as Echo & the Bunnymen, the Psychedelic Furs, and Simple Minds as well as the era’s baggy trend. Yet somehow the Horrors' chameleon act seems more cohesive and convincing -- or perhaps it’s just less shocking to hear them give their music another complete makeover. The main remnant of Primary Colours is that album’s atmospheric yet detailed production, which the Horrors embellish further with dense layers of synth, guitars, and vocals. Skying's centerpiece and lead single, “Still Life,” defines its approach, with sparkly mid-‘80s keyboards and brass that only strengthen the feeling that Jim Kerr sang this song over the credits of some long-lost John Hughes movie. Though “Still Life” isn’t as striking a salvo as Primary Colours' “Sea Within a Sea,” it’s just as striking in its own way, and even if nothing here quite matches their previous flashes of brilliance, Skying reflects the Horrors' growing abilities. Not only do the bandmembers stretch the muscles they developed on Primary Colours with workouts like the aforementioned “Moving Further Away” and “Oceans Burning,” both of which expand on “Sea Within a Sea”’s motorik rhythms and suite-like movements, they also turn in some downright poppy moments like the towering “I Can See Through You” and “Endless Blue.” While the Horrors' main skill still seems to be embodying whatever styles catch their fancies as completely as they can, they put more of their own stamp on these sounds, as “Dive In”’s melodramatic take on baggy’s usually fun-loving grooves and the dub influence hovering around “Wild Eyed” attest. Interestingly, Skying's most overtly rock song, “Monica Gems,” is far tamer than anything on Strange House and even a good chunk of Primary Colours, underscoring just how far they’ve ventured with each album. Regardless of where they end up next, the Horrors have already traveled much further than most listeners would have imagined. ~ Heather Phares

Lhasa, el astro inolvidable

Tan solo tres álbumes en estudio, un directo y tres giras internacionales bastaron a Lhasa de Sela para dejar una huella imborrable en la historia de la música popular contemporánea. La llorona, The Living Road y Lhasa son trabajos tan diferentes como redondos que nos muestran un universo peculiar y al mismo tiempo reconocible, a medio camino entre el sueño y la realidad. Sus temas, elaborados a partir de claroscuros, nos hablan sinceramente de los sentimientos de una artista cuyo arte vocal, intimista, rebosante de emoción, establece con el oyente un pacto de complicidad. Por lo demás, su trayectoria vital puede leerse a manera de capítulos de una novela, sin que falten los ingredientes del mito ni los estremecimientos de los relatos más hermosos y conmovedores.

Neoclásico: un nuevo mundo en la frontera entre el electro y el clásico

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... En los últimos años, todos estos nombres tan de moda se han agrupado bajo la vasta e imprecisa etiqueta de «neoclásico». Pero, a decir verdad, este «escenario» se parece más a una banda heterogénea de inquietos artistas que mezclan instrumentos clásicos y producción electrónica –desde una supuesta conexión con los pioneros del minimalismo estadounidense… que deleitan los sentidos, y que abren perspectivas a ambos lados de su espectro musical.

Arctic Monkeys, atraco a la inglesa

El cuarteto de Sheffield abandonó sus queridas tierras del norte para conquistar los charts a base de riffs incisivos, sonrisas de oreja a oreja y contoneos lascivos. Despues de The White Stripes, The Libertines y The Strokes, estos ex adolescentes ya bien entrados en la madurez han puesto el rock a dar saltos y a todo el mundo de acuerdo.
