After recording a series of albums that established him as a pop-minded interpreter of soul styles, Robert Palmer surprised fans in 1980 with the stylistic about-face of Clues. On this album, he brought his sound into the new wave era by playing up the rock edge to his music, stripping the high-production gloss from his sound, and incorporating synthesizers into the arrangements. The end result became a big hit in the U.K. and paved the way for later international successes like Riptide and Heavy Nova. Clues also produced two notable singles in "Looking for Clues," a clever slice of new wave pop that surprises the listener with an unexpected xylophone solo, and "Johnny and Mary," a moody synth-driven ballad with perceptive lyrics about a doomed romantic relationship. There is also an impressive cover of Gary Numan's "I Dream of Wires" that retains the chilly electronic grandeur of the original while successfully working in an earthier rhythm arrangement that makes the song dance-friendly. Elsewhere, Palmer shows he hasn't abandoned his penchant for soul and ethnic music: "Woke Up Laughing" filters an African-style, chant-like vocal melody through a minimalist electronic production style, and "Found You Now" effectively combines a reggae groove with a deadpan sense of cool that is very "new wave." The end result is a bit short (it clocks in at barely over a half hour), but it remains one of Robert Palmer's strongest and most consistent albums. In short, Clues is a must for Robert Palmer fans and worth a spin for anyone into new wave. ~ Donald A. Guarisco

Sofia Coppola on air

A l'occasion des 20 ans de la sortie de son film “Virgin Suicides”, Qobuz passe en revue quelques grands moments musicaux de la filmographie de Sofia Coppola, à travers ses collaborations avec le duo français Air ou Thomas Mars du groupe Phoenix.

New Order, de la cave au dancefloor

Comment le groupe mancunien le plus sombre de l’ère punk est devenu maître du dancefloor ? Né sur les cendres de Joy Division au début des années 80, New Order symbolise l’une des premières unions réussies entre rock’n’roll et dance music. L’impeccable BO de la morose Angleterre thatchérienne.

Cap au Cap-Vert

Depuis que les Portugais ont annexé cet ensemble d’îles désertes au XVe siècle pour en faire un centre de regroupement d’esclaves, les populations noire et portugaise s’y sont mélangées au fil du temps pour donner naissance à une langue et des musiques inédites – chaque île développant plus ou moins son propre style –, transformant les sols arides du Cap-Vert en inépuisable réservoir à talents.
