'Spreadheads should be delighted by this anomaly in Widespread Panic's catalog. Recorded live in Myrtle Beach in November of 2003, Über Cobra is the first set of the concert, and is now an "acoustic" album by the Southern jam rockers. The reason the word is in quotes is because the organ is still used and it's electric as hell, and John Keane, the band's producer, plays pedal steel on four tracks. That said, this is one of the most cohesive live dates the band has ever recorded. Full of the space and texture that only acoustic instruments can provide, the playing is tight and inspired. The flowing nature of the band's sound -- instantly recognizable even without electricity -- lends itself well to the relaxed, "unplugged" atmosphere. The effect of this set is anything but back-porch laid-back. The music is high quality, full of crackling energy and gorgeous dynamics. What's most revealing here is just how great a singer John Bell is. On the band's other live outings, he is forced to growl into the maelstrom of swirling instruments. Here, the subtle nuances in his voice are exposed up front and extend the musicality of the proceedings. The track selection is wonderful, too, including originals like "Wonderin'" and "Nobody's Loss," with Keane's sweet, loping steel in the background. And as satisfying as these and other tracks are, it is in the covers that Widespread Panic reveals its true strength as a band. Revisiting the Talking Heads song catalog, the band delivers a gorgeous extended version of David Byrne's "City of Dreams" that captures the dreaminess of the original and adds an authentic kind of rural Southern soul. The read of Willis Alan Ramsey's "Geraldine & the Honey Bee" offers a wonderful tension between the relaxed honky tonk stroll of the original and Bell's country blues vocal. Likewise, Vic Chesnutt's "Expiration Day" is a tender, deeply moving ballad that literally drips with emotion. "Mercy" rollicks like the road tune it is, strutting its minor-key rambling acoustic rock into snarling intensity. And just before the closer, Widespread Panic trots out its reverent yet trademarked take on Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home," all the more poignant because of its hushed volume. Bell's voice wrenches all the desolate anguish out of Stevie Winwood's lyric as the hand percussion and guitars and organ slip around him like a well-worked glove. "Papa Johnny Road" closes the set, with George McConnell's killer sharp National Steel licks filling the verses and underscoring the vocal lines. This is one of the Panic's very best live recordings not only because of its eclectic presentation, which is part of the draw, but also because this band plays so exceptionally well in this setting -- it would be a delight for a studio album to be done this way as well. ~ Thom Jurek

Le monde selon Peter Gabriel

Porte-drapeau du rock progressif britannique avec Genesis, Peter Gabriel est ensuite 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. À l’occasion de l’arrivée de tout son catalogue sur Qobuz, retour sur le parcours d’une pop star pas comme les autres.

Nick Cave, mauvaise graine de star

Nick Cave et ses Bad Seeds restent l’une des aventures les plus prolifiques de l’ère post punk. Dès la fin des années 80, le magnétisme caverneux du chanteur australien atteignait un certain paroxysme, entre reprises furibardes, ballades au piano et rock’n’roll en sueur. Au fil des ans, le Cave s’est fait de plus en plus crooner, entre un Frank Sinatra punk et un Johnny Cash austère...

Jimi Hendrix, le ciel a fini d’attendre

Malgré une carrière éclair, Jimi Hendrix a eu le temps de réinventer le blues en repoussant les limites sonores du genre, grâce à sa Stratocaster et à la liberté électrique de son inspiration. Son troisième album posthume <i>Both Sides of the Sky</i>, une compilation d’inédits cinq étoiles, offre un panorama étonnamment large de l'épopée courte mais fulgurante du Voodoo Child.
