Alternatif et Indé - Paru le 3 février 2017 | New West Records

Plutôt habituée à l’Americana et la country alternative, l’écurie New West Records accueille parfois des poulains 100 rock’n’roll. C’est le cas de ce Ron Gallo, jeune chevelu énervé qui, après s’être fait les crocs au sein des Toy Soldiers, obscure combo de Philadelphie, sa ville natale, se lance en solo. De Nashville où il a désormais jeté l’ancre, Gallo ravive la flamme d’un rock’n’roll garage sans fioriture, nerveux comme il faut et avec une pointe de honkytonk. Entouré du bassiste Joe Bisirri et du batteur Dylan Sevey, il réussit à faire tendre les oreilles malgré une musique qu’on croyait éculée. Car Heavy Meta est rempli de ses refrains jouissifs et sans chichi qui collent instantanément à la peau mais aussi de sa saine dose d’humour à l’image des titres des chansons (Why Do You Have Kids?, Young Lady You're Scaring Me, Put the Kids to Bed, Can't Stand You, All the Punks are Domesticated).

Being stuck all by yourself can change how a person does things. Ron Gallo has learned a bit about that; he was planning to stay in Italy with his new bride to make music and enjoy life when the COVID-19 lockdown of 2020 forced him to go back to his home in Nashville, which meant a lot of time spent in an empty house with only his home studio for company. While most folks would have gotten seriously bummed out under these circumstances, Gallo somehow got happy...well, kind of. 2021's Peacemeal, cut in bits and pieces before and during quarantine, is a significant departure from the scrappy but rootsy garage-influenced sound of 2017's Heavy Meta and 2018's Stardust Birthday Party. Though guitars still play an important role in the arrangements, Peacemeal is at heart a pop album, with the artist embracing electronics in a new way and absorbing the influences of contemporary R&B and hip-hop. Filtered through Gallo's sensibilities, that means many of these tracks sound like the work of a nerdy white guy with some keyboards and rhythm programs, but he's one with a pretty good sense of groove and enough cool passion to make his songs of love and longing connect. More than a little pining, frustration, and isolation is audible in this set of songs, though the layers of keyboards, filtered vocals, and digital sheen give the record a feel much closer to self-therapy than wallowing in a bad mood. The all-to-common annoyances of losing your health insurance ("Cancelled!"), the perils of boredom ("Saturday"), and finding out your friends are in worse shape than you are ("You Are Enough") fuel these songs, and as much as Gallo struggles in his lyrics, he's not giving up. Lines like "Thank you for giving me no choice but to believe in myself" and "The topic of life should never be political, it's the one thing we all have in common" are addressed to himself and his audience with equal fervor. If the remake of "All the Punks Are Domesticated" is sadder and more resigned than the original on Heavy Meta, it's also more urgent, and full of the belief that the status quo must be changed. At 29 minutes, Peacemeal has the feel of a starter project where Gallo is still working out the kinks in a new style, though the adventurous feel and eagerness to look into his own soul more than compensates, and this could be the beginning of an exciting new chapter in his life and career. © Mark Deming /TiVo

Sous ses airs de chérubin romantique, Ron Gallo cache un personnage bien plus extravagant et diabolique. Une fois sa guitare pluggée et le micro en main, le jeune Américain se métamorphose et se dévoile sur un garage punk-rock stupéfiant, accompagné de ses deux sbires Joe Bisirri et Dylan Sevey. Nashville accueille aussi les 100 % mordus du rock, et à l’heure où les pop stars dominent les punks, Gallo ne se soumet pas ! Evoquant la frustration humaine sur son premier album Heavy Meta, c’est vers l’exploration de soi qu’il se tourne sur ce deuxième disque. Stardust Birthday Party est une méditation psychédélique tout à fait curieuse. Incarnant une jeunesse révoltée, pleine de fougue et de sensibilité, Ron Gallo aurait bien sa place sur les scénarios burlesques de Phantom of the Paradise ou autre Rocky Horror Picture Show 2.0. Le jeune prodige joue pourtant avec urgence, conscient que ce mouvement punk se meurt progressivement. Ce qui ne l’empêche pas de rassurer l’audience avec le tubesque It's All Gonna Be OK. Guitares grimpantes, distorsions cosmiques et lavage de cerveau par ces mêmes mots répétés, Gallo hypnotise par ses boucles électriques. Si It's All Gonna Be OK réconforte, c’est aussi pour affronter des thématiques plus personnelles. Stardust Birthday Party c’est une confrontation du punk avec ses angoisses, l’anxiété et le fait de se dévaloriser. Une sorte de « therapy album » mais qui place toujours la musique et le divertissement au sommet. Pesant les pour et les contre, en alternance avec les ondes négatives et positives, il rend même hommage à John Coltrane qu’il réveille sur Love Supreme (Work Together). Une soirée d’anniversaire qui traverse les humeurs et s’achève sur une sublime ballade : Happy Deathday. Suave et mélancolique, assurément poétique, voilà un talent que le label New West Records n’est pas prêt de lâcher ! © Clara Bismuth/Qobuz

After releasing two albums and doing his share of touring, Ron Gallo has clearly learned a few things about the music business, and some of them are pretty funny. Gallo and his band (also known as Ron Gallo) have chosen to share some of these valuable lessons, and 2018's Really Nice Guys is a biting and witty eight-song EP about some of the pitfalls of the musician's life. In the title track, Gallo confronts the dilemma faced by nearly everyone who has been in a band -- what are you supposed to do about your musician friends who are fine people but woefully untalented? In "I'm on the Guestlist," he imagines himself as a too-cool-for-school muso who is happy to see other struggling musicians play, as long as he doesn't have to pay for the privilege. On these two numbers, Gallo and his band (bassist Joe Bisirri and drummer Dylan Sevey) connect in terms of both music and humor, and "The East Nashville Kroger Conversation" is a spoken word skit that re-creates a remarkably cliché-ridden chat between two singer/songwriters who bump into each other while buying groceries. Elsewhere, the EP isn't quite as strong, but "YouTubular" is a nice surf music pastiche, "Emotional Impact for Sale" is a dreamy pop tune with fine harmonies, and "Related Artists (For Fans Of...)" is a short but funny bit of punk ranting. Oddly enough, the EP is at its weakest at the beginning and the end -- the opener "Rough Mix" is over before it really has a chance to sink in, and "Pull Quote" is a hard rock guitar workout fogged by the presence of a sleazy industry type who talks over the whole thing. Still, there's more to like than not on Really Nice Guys, and the best stuff suggests Ron Gallo is having no problems working up material for his (or their) next album. © Mark Deming /TiVo
