Unlike either its predecessor Alone in the Universe or 2001's Zoom, From out of Nowhere didn't appear after a prolonged period of silence from Jeff Lynne's ELO. It arrived in November of 2019, nearly exactly four years after Alone in the Universe, a rapid turnaround that recalls Lynne's work schedule as a bandleader and producer in the 1970s and '80s. That's not the only way From out of Nowhere conjures memories of the past. From the spaceship hovering on its record cover to the song title "Sci-Fi Woman" stirring up the ghost of "Evil Woman," the album is designed to sound and feel like an Electric Light Orchestra album from the late 1970s. That was true of Alone in the Universe too, but From out of Nowhere makes that album seem fresher in retrospect. Here, there is no clever embrace of digital technology or even nods to disco: it's all immaculate orchestrated pop punctuated with some old-time rock & roll. Listen not too closely and it may be possible to mistake these tunes for outtakes from A New World Record or Out of the Blue, since they have a similar pomp lushness. Listen a bit closer and the seams emerge. As elegant as they are, the melodies don't easily lodge in the subconscious, but the bigger problem is that the production -- by Lynne, who plays virtually every note on the record -- is airless and precise. This dryness is a remnant of the digital age, where every element in a recording is exactly in the right place, and if it's not quite a drawback, it does mean From out of Nowhere can be a bit of an uncanny valley: it's close enough to a genuine item to satisfy, yet different enough to disarm. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Les Rita Mitsouko, partenaires particuliers

Les Rita Mitsouko formaient un couple insolite, mais ça n’a pas empêché leur musique de séduire un très large public. À coups d’audace et de mélanges, parfois de scandales, le groupe formé par Catherine Ringer et Fred Chichin en 1979 a écrit des chansons essentielles de la bande-son des années 1980, et devenues éternelles. Alors que la Philharmonie de Paris offre une carte blanche à la chanteuse pour les 40 ans du groupe, retour sur l’itinéraire d’un duo pas comme les autres.

British blues boom, chronique d’une révolution

Si Joe Bonamassa revient avec “British Blues Explosion”, un an après le “Blue & Lonesome” des Rolling Stones, c’est que le « British blues boom » a été plus qu’un simple courant. L’intérêt des Anglais pour les icônes américaines du genre a engendré une véritable révolution, avec en tête la sainte Trinité de la guitare, formée par Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck et Jimmy Page. À l’aube des années 1960, une fabuleuse déferlante atteint les côtes de la Grande-Bretagne. Et ouvre la voie à de nouvelles dimensions musicales.

Santana, le lézard de Tijuana

Une place au panthéon du rock assurée dès ses débuts avec sa performance ensorcelante à Woodstock, une dizaine de Grammy Awards sous le bras et des millions de disques écoulés grâce à sa renaissance en star de la latin pop, des featurings plus prestigieux les uns que les autres… Santana fait partie de ces artistes qui ont tout raflé : la reconnaissance du public, de la critique et de ses pairs. Portrait d’un artiste comblé qui enchaîne les mues comme un lézard.
