Hi-Res
For over fifty years, the Mael brothers Ron (the one with the moustache) and Russell (the one with the shaggy hair) have been writing sophisticated baroque-pop songs that border on kitsch. Sparks are one of those bands who were never really popular with the general public but have been greatly admired by many famous musicians. Their reputation seems to traverse all styles and genres, from Depeche Mode, Björk, New Order and Kurt Cobain through to The Smiths, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Sonic Youth, not to mention the kooky Franz Ferdinand with whom Sparks recorded an album entitled FFS (for Franz Ferdinand Sparks). This 24th album, A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip, is equally as brilliant as its predecessors. It features fourteen synthetic pop tracks and is surprisingly contemporary for a duo of brothers who are both over the age of seventy. As ever, the pair inject humour into their music with tracks like iPhone (“Put your fucking iPhone down and listen to me…”) and Lawnmower (about a “showstopping” lawnmower) but the album ends on a more touching song with choral vocal effects, entitled Please Don’t Fuck Up My World, in which the gravity of their message comes through the seemingly lighthearted music. This is the perfect album to listen whilst waiting for the release of Sparks’ musical comedy directed by Leos Carax, which is out soon. © Yan Céh/Qobuz
