Hearing "Packs of Three" begin Arab Strap's second full album with a gentle electric guitar strum and crisp drum beat is one thing, hearing Moffat softly sing "It was the biggest cock you'd ever seen, but no one knows where that cock has been" is quite another. Put the two together and that's Arab Strap in a disturbing nutshell, once again. With a number of guest performers on keyboards, strings, and other instruments, Moffat and Middleton once again create a series of tense, melancholy, and emotionally eviscerating numbers. Given the album title, meaning "fear of love," it's no surprise that happy-go-lucky tunes aren't anywhere to be found, but then again, that was never the Arab Strap M.O. in the first place. Lyrics as naked, realistic, and ugly as the cover paintings abound, their acid impact again, carefully shaped by the moody arrangements and steady pace throughout. The Albini-tinged production familiar from Week recurs here, but the songs themselves feel perversely gentler on the one hand, more anthemic ("Soaps" being a good example) on the other. The ear Middleton has for astonishing, subtle touches -- the soft reverb guitar loop ending "Here We Go," the combination of hum and crackle on "Islands," the piano/drum arrangement on "I Would've Liked Me a Lot" -- proves its strength time and again on Philophobia. Moffat's lyrics are printed in the CD booklet, a useful touch given his varying delivery, but what needs to be heard often comes through all too clearly for comfort, unless one somehow has always had a flawless life when it comes to love, lust, and their foibles. When it comes to the guests, Alan Wylie's trumpet work on "The Night Before the Funeral" is quite lovely, while Adele Bethel duets excellently with Moffat on "Afterwards." ~ Ned Raggett

Arctic Monkeys, rapina all’inglese

Il quartetto di Sheffield ha abbandonato le sue terre nordiche per scalare le classifiche a colpi di riff incisivi, banane fissate col gel e colpi d’anca assassini. Dopo White Stripes, Libertines e Strokes, gli ex-adolescenti si sono fatti una flebo di rock e messo d’accordo tutti quanti.

Tom Waits, gli anni Asylum

Prima di diventare una specie di Howlin’ Wolf punk da cabaret, il personaggio Tom Waits è nato come autore di canzoni ossessionato dal jazz, dalle melodie di Broadway e dalla Beat Generation di Kerouac. Tra il 1973 e il 1980, il californiano registrerà per l’etichetta Asylum sei album in studio e un live, ripubblicati di recente e rimasterizzati in alta risoluzione a 24 Bit. Retrospettiva sugli inizi caotici e appassionanti del barbone celeste più seducente.

Jack White al salvataggio del rock

Dagli White Stripes alla svolta come solista, Jack White ha suonato la campana a morto di un rock ormai andato a male. Dieci anni dopo «Seven Nation Army», il genio dai mille progetti profetizza che la riscossa del rock sta arrivando in forza. Nell’attesa, una retrospettiva sul fenomeno White.
