What do you get when you cross a torch song with Nietzsche? Chaos and a Dancing Star. The title of Marc Almond’s 24th album is in fact inspired from this phrase from Thus Spoke Zarathustra: “One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star”. Chaos can birth creativity and can lead to a positive and brilliant feeling. It’s this double-edged feeling that runs through the 13 tracks written composed with the former Soft Cell member, in tandem with Chris Braide (Sia, Lana Del Rey, Halsey…). One of the most emblematic songs of the dichotomic philosophy of the album is without a doubt Hollywood Forever, the name of the famous cemetery to the stars in Los Angeles. Under the shining and utopian surface of Hollywood hides a certain decadence represented by that place. But ghosts seem to continue inspiring artists, and Marc Almond is certainly one of them.

The star mentioned by Nietzsche is often expressed through music, notably on the tracks Slow Burn Love, Cherry Tree and Fighting a War. With their playful pop-rock beats and melodies in the major key, they form brilliant counterpoints to the dark romanticism of the lyrics. The musical positivity is very often accentuated by generous arrangements which blend piano with sparkling layers of Mellotron, the result accompanied with a generous dose of camp as is often the way with Almond. The opening song of the album, Black Sunrise is one of the highlights of the singer’s entire career. The fluttering flute in Lord of Misrule is another highlight, as well as the vibrant choirs which interject at various moments over the course of the whole album. Finally, Marc Almond is not only a fan of the golden age of Hollywood, but is also clearly influenced by aesthetic and horrific images from the Italian giallo genre of cinema. There is a certain level of homage to this style of film, including a celesta solo in the finale, the melody of which is a heartfelt nod to the soundtrack of Dario Argento’s film Suspiria. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Indie Rock USA in 10 album

Dopo i “sintetici” anni '80, le chitarre hanno fatto il loro ritorno violento nel decennio successivo, infiltrandosi dappertutto nel rock indipendente. Indipendente da un sistema e dalla massa. Come una corrente alternativa ereditata dallo spirito sovversivo e dal "do-it-yourself" di quel punk che troviamo già nei Velvet Underground di Lou Reed o negli Stooges di Iggy Pop. Panoramica dei 10 album che hanno marcato quei densi anni '90.

John Barry, il genio è nella varietà

La musica per il cinema richiede sensibilità e destrezza speciale per poter far fronte ad ogni stile con dignità: dal suono disco per una scena da night-club ad un madrigale per un film d’epoca, il compositore cinematografico deve essere in grado di cimentarsi in ogni stile. John Barry ha dimostrato, una e più volte, d’essere stato uno dei più grandi autori di colonne sonore, capace di abbracciare tutti i generi nel cinema e nella musica.
