Releasing a dub album isn't exactly the likeliest of moves for Franz Ferdinand, but that's exactly why Blood is such a refreshing departure. Released less than half a year later than the group's third album, Tonight, Blood renames and reconfigures Tonight's songs in a way that's more sonically and conceptually interesting than typical remixes. Even at its best, Tonight tended to feel too careful, but if that album was a meticulously filled-in coloring book, then Blood is an abstract watercolor: spacious, free-flowing, and hypnotic. The thrill of a wild night out and its aftermath still make up Blood's heart -- if anything, the highs are higher here than they were on the original versions: "Feel the Pressure" spins "What She Came For" in an even more hedonistic direction, allowing Alex Kapranos' sly vocals to skip over heavy beats and stabbing synths, while "Die on the Floor" is nearly as bold, distilling "Can't Stop Feeling" into a sleek dancefloor filler. Blood's lows are also lower than they were on Tonight, particularly "The Vaguest of Feeling," which sets Kapranos' "Live Alone" vocals adrift in space, intensifying their desolation. And while some of the album's tracks retain their Tonight roots, like "Feeling Kind of Anxious," which is still clearly "Ulysses" albeit with sparer beats and dubby echo, others are almost unrecognizable: "Backwards on My Face"'s keyboard riff is the only clue that the song's vocodered slink used to be "Twilight Omens." "If I Can't Have You Nobody Can" is one of the deepest dub moments, allowing producer Dan Carey (who has also worked with such masters as Lee "Scratch" Perry and Mad Professor) and bassist Bob Hardy free rein to take the track to the outer limits. While not every song is a rousing success, Blood feels fresh and alive -- and underscores that Franz Ferdinand should take chances like this more often.

Il britpop in 10 album

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” Fu con questa frase di Damon Albarn del 1993 che ebbe inizio la nuova invasione inglese sulla quella scena dominata allora dal grunge dei Nirvana e di Seattle. Il britpop fu profondamente legato alle politiche locali e all'identità dei suoi membri ed emerse proprio mentre entravano in scena Tony Blair ed il suo New Labour. Il romanticismo inglese ritrovò il suo fascino a discapito del concorrente americano, considerato ormai troppo superficiale nel Regno Unito dei primi anni novanta. Fate largo alla "Cool Britannia".

E i Nirvana uccisero il rock ‘n’ roll

Trentadue anni fa nascevano i Nirvana: la dirotta punk più inattesa del XX secolo. Una carriera stellare, hits internazionali, orde di fan ed un tragico epilogo per questo fenomeno mondiale. E se la band di Kurt Cobain fosse l’ultima nella storia del rock? Il fenomeno di genere definitivo, se non il suo ultimo mito.

Americana, alle radici dell’America

Il nome saprà anche di trovata commerciale un po’ fumosa, ma il genere Americana designa da una ventina d’anni quel mix di rock, country, blues e rhythm&blues. E come in ogni grande famiglia che si rispetti, si ritrovano un po’ tutti i personaggi: la figlia ribelle, lo zio colto, il padre irrequieto, la cugina esaltata…
