Stephin Merritt, l’homme-orchestre derrière le nom de The Magnetic Fields (hommage non pas à Jean-Michel Jarre mais aux Champs magnétiques, livre des surréalistes français André Breton et Philippe Soupault) revient aux affaires, en cultivant toujours ce credo fait de décalages, d’ironie folk lo-fi, dans la lignée d’un Beck ou d’un Adam Green (avec des titres du genre The Biggest Tits in History ou I Wish I Were a Prostitute Again). Extrêmement prolifique, le Bostonien multiplie les avatars et les aventures (The 6ths, The Gothic Archies ou encore Future Bible Heroes), tout en gardant bien le cap sur l’absurde et la fantaisie. Après un dernier album festin intitulé 50 Song Memoir (2017) et comprenant donc 50 morceaux pour autant d’années passées sur Terre, Merritt se fait aujourd’hui plus léger avec ce Quickies, 28 chansons extrêmement courtes (Death Pact (Let’s Make a)) ne dure que 17 secondes !), abordant les sujets les plus divers. Quickies est un titre à tiroirs et à double sens, non dénué d’un côté sexuel (un quickie, en français, est un petit coup rapide entre deux portes). Dans cet univers de douce déglingue, on trouve parfois des échos parodiques, sur le ton de l’humour, comme le très Dandy Warhols (I Want to Join) A Biker Gang ou plus émouvant, avec une voix très Scott Walker, sur The Boy in the Corner, et terriblement Leonard Cohen sur I Wish I Had Fangs and a Tail. Bref, Quickies est aussi traître que d’avaler une à une des cacahuètes : on ne peut plus s’arrêter. © Yan Céh/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 grunge en 10 albums

Il y a trente ans, Seattle devenait la capitale du rock. La faute au grunge. Cet esprit “sale” et je-m’en-foutiste né sur les cendres du punk, du heavy metal et du rock alternatif passa en un éclair de l’underground au succès mondial. Trop vite récupéré par un système qu’il reniait, le genre s’étouffa dans sa propre caricature à la fin des 90’s. Retour sur 10 albums qui ont marqué le mouvement.

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.
