As Joe Strummer once told us, anger can be power, but what Joe didn't mention is that it tends to burn hot and fast. Once it's gone, what's left? At what point do you run out of productive rage and find yourself weighed down by the ashes of hopelessness and defeat? When the Drive-By Truckers wrote and recorded 2016's American Band, the United States was a nation ankle-deep in the rising waters of racism and division, with the presidential campaign of Donald Trump just a troubling roadside curiosity. In the truest sense, 2020's The Unraveling is the companion piece to American Band, an update where tragically little has gotten better four years on, and our national malaise is greater than ever. This set of songs is rooted in frustration with a broken culture, where our leaders put children in concentration camps, mass shootings come and go with only the most futile gestures towards a solution, the rich get richer and the poor work harder for their scraps, folks turn to opiates to block out the pain and the noise, young men give themselves over to misogyny and race hatred, and no happy ending is visible on the horizon. On The Unraveling, the Drive-By Truckers stare deep into America's soul and report what they've seen, with genuine compassion but no illusions. Simply put, this is the darkest and least fun album the DBT's have made to date, one that makes American Band look light-hearted in contrast, and more than ever before, they struggle with the weight of questions that aren't just important, they're necessary, but with no simple answers offered by themselves or anyone else. Musically, The Unraveling is superb, delivering some of the most potent and nuanced performances this band has ever summoned, with Patterson Hood's and Mike Cooley's guitars speaking as clearly as the lyrics, drummer Brad Morgan and bassist Matt Patton laying down rhythms like the footfalls of an angry ghost, and Jay Gonzalez keying up the texture with his keyboards and guitars. While Hood and Cooley, the DBT's songwriters, have always impressed with their gift for telling stories and creating vivid characters, they've rarely merged words and music quite as skillful as they have here. This doesn't rock very often, but it's a hard-edged and vivid work that packs a tremendous emotional punch. The Unraveling is a dire yet vivid depiction of the American zeitgeist at a crucial time in the nation's history, and a decisive collection of songs these musicians clearly wish they didn't have to write. ~ Mark Deming

Americana, l’Amérique par les racines

L’étiquette a beau sentir le coup marketing fumeux, l’americana synthétise pourtant bien depuis une vingtaine d’années cette fusion du rock, de la country, du blues et du rhythm’n’blues. Et comme dans toutes les grandes familles, on y croise à peu près tout le monde : la fille rebelle, l’oncle cultivé, le père agité, la cousine habitée…

Le trip hop en 10 albums

A l’aube des années 90, la vague trip hop submerge la Grande-Bretagne avec une électro influencée par la musique jamaïcaine et les beats rap. Rythmiques chloroformées et ambiances oppressantes, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba et quelques autres inventent une sorte de soul music sombre, futuriste et parfois très cinématographique. Coup de zoom en 10 albums sur un genre aux frontières floues mais à l’influence nette.

David Byrne, tête chercheuse

Il a piloté les Talking Heads, enregistré du punk funk et de la musique sud-américaine, réédité des pépites de world music, passé des heures à pédaler dans les grandes villes du monde entier et fait des dizaines d’autres choses. Mais que se passe-t-il donc dans la tête de David Byrne ?
