King Decemberist Colin Meloy's love for the heydays of British folk-rock has always served as the foundation on which he builds his crafty, idiosyncratic chamber pop, but on Hazards of Love he's taken that bedrock and built his own version of Stonehenge. A 17-song suite (think one continuous song with track ID's peppered throughout for sanity's sake) about a girl named Margaret, shapeshifters, forest queens, and fairytale treachery, Hazards of Love is ambitious, pretentious, obtuse, often impenetrable, and altogether pretty great. Harking back to the late-'60s/early-'70s offerings from bands like Pentangle, Horslips, ELP, Steeleye Span, and the Incredible String Band, it makes no apologies for its nerdy, prog rock musicality, and convoluted narrative. Meloy, who often cites Shirley Collins, Nic Jones, and Anne Briggs as influences -- Hazards is named after a Briggs' EP which featured no such song -- must have had a vast hard rock/power metal collection to draw from as well, as one can glean melodic cues and structures from Iron Maiden and Rush as easily as they can Fairport Convention and Jethro Tull. On a record with no obvious single (the first instance of the title track comes the closest), it's the album as a whole that needs to engage, and for the most part, the Decemberists have succeeded. The inclusion of guest vocalists Becky Stark (Lavender Diamond) and Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), who bring some Little Queen-era Heart to the table, as well as bit parts from Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Rebecca Gates (Spinanes), and Robyn Hitchcock help keep the focus off Meloy's affected vocals, but it's the music that drives this beast into the forest. Producer Tucker Martine has beefed up the band's sound even more than he did with Christopher Walla on 2006's Crane Wife, channeling more reverb into the acoustics and a whole lot more brimstone into the electrics, resulting in what is easily the band's best sounding record to date. Hazards of Love won't convert anybody who already wrote the band off as overly precious bookworms with a Morrissey/Victorian ghost story fetish, but fans who have dutifully followed the Decemberists since their 2002 debut get to take home bragging rights this time around.

Nashville au féminin

Pas facile de jouer des coudes sur la scène de la machiste Music City, berceau de la country music, lorsqu’on est une femme. Au fil des ans, certaines ont tout de même réussi à faire bouger les lignes et les mentalités. Comme ces dix-là, pionnières et révolutionnaires ayant posé – et imposé – leurs santiags sur la table de Nashville.

Le jazz nordique en 10 albums

Hiver, grands espaces, nature en majesté… On réduit vite la Scandinavie aux éternels mêmes clichés. Le jazz n’échappe pas à la règle. Pourtant, le Danemark marche sur les brisées de la tradition nord-américaine, la Norvège est attirée par l’expérimentation et la Suède préfère ne pas trancher en s’immisçant entre les deux. Malgré ces différences, on parle invariablement de jazz scandinave comme d’une grande famille. Depuis le début des années 70, les musiciens venus du froid ont imposé une singularité perpétuée par la génération actuelle. Coup de zoom sur cette vraie fausse famille en 10 albums choisis avec subjectivité dans une discographie vaste comme un fjord.

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.
