Stephin Merritt est un vrai génie de la pop contemporaine mais peu le savent de ce côté-ci de l’Atlantique. Un auteur aussi original et précieux que le sont les Cole Porter et autres Randy Newman. Si, si… Aux commandes des Magnetic Fields depuis presque trois décennies, il laisse notamment à la postérité le bien nommé 69 Love Songs, grandiose traité conceptuel sur la chanson d’amour publié en 1999… Comme son titre l’indique, 50 Song Memoir qui parait en mars 2017 enquille cinquante chansons, réparties sur cinq CD, retraçant les cinquante années passées sur terre par leur auteur. Cinquante chansons dont le titre est précédé de l’année traitée. De sa voix grave et faussement romantique, Stephin Merritt passe donc en revue son album photo personnel. Une vie durant laquelle on croise Judy Garland et l'Eurodisco, le Jefferson Airplane et les synthés new wave, Isaac Asimov et les Shaggs, Vivienne Westwood et Ang Lee. L’exercice est à la fois très personnel mais assez universel (comme chez les grands songwriters) mais la force de ce disque des Magnetic Fields est de ne jamais oublier qu’on parle ici de musique et surtout de chansons ! Merritt ne griffonne pas simplement de jolies saynètes sur son nombril mais bien des chansons, des vraies ! Il signe surtout un concept-album impressionnant et à réécouter en boucle. © MZ/Qobuz

L'âge d'or du rock indé américain en 10 albums

Après des 80’s bien synthétiques, les guitares font un violent come-back durant la décennie suivante et infiltrent tous les courants du rock indépendant. Indépendant d’un système et de la masse. Comme un courant alternatif hérité de l’esprit subversif et bricolo du punk qu’on retrouve chez le Velvet Underground de Lou Reed ou les Stooges d’Iggy Pop. Retour sur 10 albums marquants de ces denses années 90.

Le trip hop en 10 albums

A l’aube des années 90, la vague trip hop submerge la Grande-Bretagne avec une électro influencée par la musique jamaïcaine et les beats rap. Rythmiques chloroformées et ambiances oppressantes, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba et quelques autres inventent une sorte de soul music sombre, futuriste et parfois très cinématographique. Coup de zoom en 10 albums sur un genre aux frontières floues mais à l’influence nette.

Le monde selon Peter Gabriel

Porte-drapeau du rock progressif britannique avec Genesis, Peter Gabriel, qui fête ses 70 ans le 13 février, est devenu le champion de la world music et la figure de l’artiste engagé à travers son label Real World, la série de festivals Womad et bien sûr la protest song “Biko”, passée à la postérité via la tournée de concerts Amnesty International. Retour sur le parcours d’une pop star pas comme les autres.
