"Loss is a part of a life this long" sings Elbow frontman Guy Garvey on "Dexter & Sinister," the sanguine opening cut on the venerable post-Brit-pop group's eighth full-length effort Giants of All Sizes. The follow-up to 2017's relatively buoyant and unsurprisingly chart-topping Little Fictions, the nine-track set retains the hard-won wisdom of its predecessor, but there's a strong current of unease running through the proceedings. Awash in the damp grays and socio-political malaise of the Brexit era, Garvey and company deftly navigate the brackish waters with an amalgam of empathy and steely acceptance. Filtering the discord through their signature blend of dreamy, prog-tinged Brit-pop and pragmatic, yet erudite working-class poetry, the band looks to glitchy electronics and lurching beats early on in the proceedings before settling into more familiar midtempo and piano-forward balladry. "Dexter & Sinister," with its knotty rhythms, elliptical melody, and arm-hair-raising guest vocal from Jesca Hoop, sets an awfully high bar, but the hymn-like "Seven Veils," which manages to feel both meditative and propulsive, and the slow-burning "Delayed 3:15" are textural marvels that, like most Elbow songs, reward repeated listenings. Garvey remains the group's greatest asset. With his warm flannel croon, devotion to friends and family, and innate ability to find small stories within much larger frameworks -- "Baby, empires crumble all the time/pay it no mind/you just happened to witness mine" -- he and his bandmates have been helping to make the existential pain of life relatable for over two decades. The aptly named Giants of All Sizes draws from every era of the group, and lands somewhere between the widescreen dynamics of their Mercury Prize-short-listed debut, the workmanlike grandiosity of Seldom Seen Kid, and the aching melancholy of The Take Off and Landing of Everything. ~ James Christopher Monger

Iggy et les Stooges, l'aube punk

En 1969, une bande d’auto-proclamés crétins dynamite le rock’n’roll à coup de distorsion et de textes nihilistes. A la tête de ces Stooges, Iggy Pop, une sorte de Nijinski habité et révolté, destiné à devenir le parrain du punk rock à venir.

Daniel Johnston, icône troublée et troublante

Personne ne sonne comme Daniel Johnston. Artiste dépressif et méconnu devenu culte grâce à la reconnaissance de ses pairs, l’Américain, mort le 11 septembre 2019 à l’âge de 58 ans, est le symbole d’une musique naïve, lo-fi mais débordant d’émotions. Il n’est pas trop tard pour (re)découvrir cet authentique génie underground qui ne rate jamais le cœur de l’auditeur.

Blues touareg, l’oasis du rock

Depuis la sortie en 2002 du premier album officiel du groupe touareg Tinariwen, “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, leur musique électrique dominée par les guitares est devenue une catégorie de rock, reconnue et respectée de Bamako à Los Angeles. Ce succès international a permis à de nombreux musiciens originaires du Sahara de se faire connaître. Ces poètes électriques des dunes de sable et des étendues rocailleuses ne cessent d’attirer les rockers occidentaux en quête d’authenticité rebelle.
