After a jump to Sub Pop, Omni return with their most precise, most melodic, and best-sounding album yet. Like their first two, Networker was recorded in rural Georgia with Nathaniel Higgins and the sound is very similar. Frankie Broyles' guitar is a slashing, twisted ball of nerves, his drumming is spare and punchy, Philip Frobos' basslines are jabbing and melodic, and his vocals are cheerfully monotone and just barely poke their head out of the mix. What's different this time is everything is a little more jagged, the guitars have more restraint, and there are hints of avant-garde jazz and Television throughout. One of the album's better songs, "Courtesy Call," is a good example of how things have been altered. While at its core, it's still the kind of jumpy post-punk the band mastered earlier, here there are little Verlaine-esque guitar filigrees dotting the arrangement, a couple of sustained chords that hang in the air like they were played on piano, some actual piano providing some drama and a majestic melody that Frobos almost croons. It makes for a small sonic upgrade that moves the band forward a bit without losing any of their strengths along the way. The rest of the album follows that plan perfectly; balancing moments of arty brilliance with hooky, almost pop that really pops thanks to the tighter sound and tenser arrangements. Tracks like "Sincerely Yours" and "Flat Earth" have extremely sticky hooks and choruses that lend themselves to humming long after the album stops spinning, "Skeleton Key" has a little bit of Thin Lizzy-ish strut, and "Moat" has the squirmy twists and turns of an early Feelies classic. Their new approach lends itself well to the quieter songs, too; "Genuine Person" has a gentleness to the sound and melody not heard on an Omni record before, and the title track's keys and soft chord changes show that the band don't have to be nervy and angular to impress. They drop these moments of calm in among the energetic numbers just often enough to give the record some breathing room and make it their most well-rounded listening experience yet. It's also the record where the promise of their first two efforts comes to fruition. Those albums were undeniably good and filled with songs that bobbed and weaved like a champion lightweight boxer; on Networker, they land blows like a middleweight. Punching with more focus and power, by the time the last note fades they emerge from the ring with the post-punk revival title belt slung around their triumphant shoulders. ~ Tim Sendra

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.

Marc Ribot, l'antieroe della chitarra

Per 35 anni, il nome di Marc Ribot è apparso sulle copertine di album firmati da Tom Waits, Vinicio Capossela, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso e una miriade di altri musicisti. E quando non presta la sua atipica chitarra ai più grandi, il newyorkese si diverte a smontare rock, jazz, funk, musica cubana e tutto ciò che gli capita a tiro.

Soul Music, uno sguardo al passato

Negli ultimi anni, dopo il 2010, parecchie voci fanno rivivere il soul degli anni ’60 e ’70 a colpi di album registrati «alla vecchia maniera». Con Amy Winehouse, Leon Bridges, Sharon Jones, Michael Kiwanuka e Curtis Harding, il groove vintage ha il suo ritorno di fiamma.
