Ray Davies est un génie. On pourrait s’arrêter là… Le leader des Kinks est plus souvent considéré comme écrivain que comme songwriter. Véritable mythe outre-Manche bien reconnu sur le tard, il est pour beaucoup le Dickens de l’après-guerre. Un peintre et un chroniqueur à la fois subtil, caustique et poétique comme nul autre et dont chaque sortie est logiquement scrutée à la loupe. En solo pourtant, Sir Raymond n’a jamais raflé les suffrages, n’égalant jamais ses faits d’arme d’antan. Cet Americana qui parait au printemps 2017 change la donne. A 72 ans passés et fraichement élevé au rang de Chevalier, l’auteur de Waterloo Sunset (la plus grande pop song de tous les temps ?) publie une œuvre forte dont le titre, plus qu’évocateur, reprend en fait celui de son autobiographie publié en 2013. Le cerveau des Kinks n’a jamais caché sa fascination pour l’Amérique et ses musiques. Une obsession d’autant plus intéressante que les Kinks, encore plus que les Beatles, furent comme la quintessence de la pop britannique. Ici, entouré des Jayhawks de Gary Louris, il évoque son rapport à ce continent américain. Ses rêves d’enfant de conquête de l’Ouest, la première tournée catastrophique des Kinks au moment de la British Invasion dans les années 60, le retour triomphal, dans les salles pleines, deux décennies plus tard, mais aussi son escapade à New Orleans, en 2004, durant laquelle il fréquente Alex Chilton de Big Star et qui vire au cauchemar lorsqu’il se prend une balle dans la jambe. Une fois de plus, Ray Davis est un conteur magnifique que les années, même avec une voix un brin voilée, n’ont guère diminué. L’American Dream, comme son nom l’indique, n’est qu’un rêve. Ray Davies le sait bien. C’est sans doute ce qui le fascine le plus et lui permet de mêler nostalgie, joie, humour et amertume à sa convenance tout au long d’Americana, son album solo le plus convaincant. © MZ/Qobuz

Descriptif de l'album

Ray Davies est un génie. On pourrait s’arrêter là… Le leader des Kinks est plus souvent considéré comme écrivain que comme songwriter. Véritable mythe outre-Manche bien reconnu sur le tard, il est pour beaucoup le Dickens de l’après-guerre. Un peintre et un chroniqueur à la fois subtil, caustique et poétique comme nul autre et dont chaque sortie est logiquement scrutée à la loupe. En solo pourtant, Sir Raymond n’a jamais raflé les suffrages, n’égalant jamais ses faits d’arme d’antan. Cet Americana qui parait au printemps 2017 change la donne. A 72 ans passés et fraichement élevé au rang de Chevalier, l’auteur de Waterloo Sunset (la plus grande pop song de tous les temps ?) publie une œuvre forte dont le titre, plus qu’évocateur, reprend en fait celui de son autobiographie publié en 2013. Le cerveau des Kinks n’a jamais caché sa fascination pour l’Amérique et ses musiques. Une obsession d’autant plus intéressante que les Kinks, encore plus que les Beatles, furent comme la quintessence de la pop britannique. Ici, entouré des Jayhawks de Gary Louris, il évoque son rapport à ce continent américain. Ses rêves d’enfant de conquête de l’Ouest, la première tournée catastrophique des Kinks au moment de la British Invasion dans les années 60, le retour triomphal, dans les salles pleines, deux décennies plus tard, mais aussi son escapade à New Orleans, en 2004, durant laquelle il fréquente Alex Chilton de Big Star et qui vire au cauchemar lorsqu’il se prend une balle dans la jambe. Une fois de plus, Ray Davis est un conteur magnifique que les années, même avec une voix un brin voilée, n’ont guère diminué. L’American Dream, comme son nom l’indique, n’est qu’un rêve. Ray Davies le sait bien. C’est sans doute ce qui le fascine le plus et lui permet de mêler nostalgie, joie, humour et amertume à sa convenance tout au long d’Americana, son album solo le plus convaincant. © MZ/Qobuz

40 ans de post-punk en 10 albums

Au crépuscule des 70’s, les éclaboussures punk n’ont pas encore séché que la noirceur du mouvement déteint déjà sur de nouveaux groupes. Dans cette new wave, le courant post-punk offre une approche tourmentée, voire radicale. Des précurseurs Joy Division et The Fall aux contemporains Shame et Fontaines D.C., coup de zoom sur les albums phares d’un électrochoc qui n’a jamais cessé de fasciner l’underground rock’n’roll.

Nebraska, quand Bruce Springsteen se met à nu

En 1982, le Boss, au sommet de sa gloire bodybuildée, prend tout le monde à contre-pied avec “Nebraska”, un album totalement acoustique et épuré à l’extrême. Un chef-d’œuvre intemporel baignant dans l’écho et la réverbération. Un disque qui narre l’Amérique de la marge et que beaucoup considèrent comme son plus grand.

Les Beatles en 12 albums

Sept années, à peine, passées en studio. Un héritage incommensurable dont l'influence demeure intacte. Les Beatles sont un cas unique dans l'histoire de la musique pop(ulaire). Le miroir musical des 60’s, ère de transition majeure. Avec les Fab Four – aidés par Bob Dylan outre-Atlantique –, le rock quitte son adolescence insouciante pour entrer dans l'âge adulte. Les quatre garçons dans le vent naïfs et pétillants de Liverpool vont se transformer en artistes indépendants. Une vie qui défile en parallèle de leur discographie.
