The exotic, one of a kind Brazilian guitarist, singer, and rhythmic mouth and body percussionist has had a stop-and-start career with turns as mysterious and intriguing as her music. After splashing on the scene with her Chesky debut Solo in 1994, continuing the stir (including vast critical acclaim) with Rhythms (1995) and releasing Chameleon on Verve in 1997, Badi Assad suffered from a series of personal issues that drew her back home for a few years. Fans who were excited about her 2003 re-emergence on the trio date Three Guitars with Larry Coryell and John Abercrombie will be beside themselves with the long-awaited Verde, her first solo project in six years. Those expecting a typical Brazilian vocal album — she explains the title as « the shades of the Brazilian rain forest » — will be surprised by Assad’s versatility, which incorporates rhythmic textures from around the world. She opens with the very African-flavored voice and dense percussion call-and-response « Cheguei Meu Povo » and a vocal percussion pitter patter interlude before tapping into a sound more typical of classic romantic samba (« Basica »). That sultry side is balanced by her more aggressive vocal and guitar on the feisty « Nao Adianta, » which blends modern rock influences with indigenous soundscaping, complete with birdcalls. Other tracks have slight classical leaning, and there’s even a little avant-garde oddity apparent on the brief « Feminina. » More mainstream ears will be glued to her sly, sexy reading of U2’s « One » and soaring, folk- and chamber music-tinged take on Björk’s dramatic « Bachelorette, » which further confirms Assad’s incredible willingness to tackle exotic challenges. Though all the stylistic zigzagging is fascinating, Assad is first and foremost a vocalist of heartbreaking intensity, and tracks like the mournful « Bom Dia Tristeza » best reflect her ability to penetrate the heart.

Ceci est un album des Black Keys ; le nom de cet album est « Brothers ».

La pochette a le mérite d’être claire. L’incontournable duo blues rock de l’Ohio a récemment annoncé la sortie de son 6ème album, le 18 mai prochain chez Nonesuch Records, son label depuis 2006. Il s’agit là d’une nouvelle plutôt réjouissante car les multiples occupations de Dan Auerbach comme de Patrick Carney ne laissaient pas penser que les Black Keys pourraient de sitôt se consacrer à un nouveau projet commun, enregistré dans le célèbre Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, en Alabama.
« Brothers », donc, comme deux frères, qui se retrouvent, après l’album solo d’Auerbach « Keep It Hid » et la tournée qui s’ensuivit, la formation d’un nouveau groupe – Drummer – pour Carney, accompagnée de la sortie de « Feel Good Together », et leur collaboration à tous deux avec Damon Dash sur le projet rap/rock BlakRoc ; le tout en 2009 !
Toujours adeptes de la reprise, ils ont choisi dans cet opus de donner leur version de Never Gonna Give You Up du chanteur soul Jerry Butler. Enfin, ils ont assuré la quasi production de leurs 15 titres, n’en confiant cette fois qu’un seul, Tighten Up, aux bons soins de Danger Mouse, qui s’était chargé en 2008 d’ « Attack And Release ». On ne chôme pas chez les frères Keys.

Mos Dub by Max Tannone

Même si le gars derrière le projet à un nom de yaourt (ou peut-être à cause de ça justement), Max Tannone nous a sortit un mélange de style franchement très convaincant. Assez en tous cas pour que l’album tourne en boucle depuis quelques heures. Pourtant parvenir à intégrer les couplets du rappeur Mos Def sur des tracks dub/reggae n’était pas forcément gagné d’office, mais là ça s’avère assez efficace.

10 morceaux à consommer aussi bien en guise de réveil qu’en fin de soirée, ça dépend à quel moment de la journée vous cherchez la tranquillité ;) Petit coup de coeur pour le 3è titre, remix de Ms Fat Booty de Mos que je n’aurai jamais pensé voir adapté de cette façon.

Ce n’est pas le premier mashup du genre réalisé par Mr Dannone puisqu’on lui devait déjà la tape Jaydiohead qui cette fois mélangeait les textes de Jay-Z avec les musiques de Radiohead.

Mélina Kana, qui est une chanteuse grecque que j’ai découverte en l’an 2001. Elle possède une voix puissante et tendre très expressive qui me fait fondre de bonheur. Je ne me lasse pas d’écouter ses chansons dont les airs semblent dès la première écoute étonnamment familiers

Bien que de consonance grecque, l’instrumentation de ces chansons est variée: le bouzouki fait place au traditionnel piano puis à l’insolite cornemuse.

Le luth et le baglama accompagnent avec bonheur la voix cristalline de Mélina Kana. En s’entourant de grands compositeurs grecs, elle a réussi à créer, comme Arvanitaki, un passage entre la culture musicale de la Grèce méditerranéenne et celle de l’Asie centrale orientale

Pretty Lights – Making Up A Changing Mind

A self proclaimed combination of an “epic fist pumping dubsteppy downtempo saga,” Pretty Lights’s newest album Making Up A Changing Mind does not disappoint. Opening with the driving beat of “Still Rockin” Pretty Lights, brainchild of Derek Vincent Smith, combines elements of hip-hop, electronic driven sounds, and old school samples to create an electronic journey through time and space. Pretty lights is unlike any other band I have listened to, with a satisfying blend of solid beats with innovative electronic sounds that create an airy-atmospheric feel to all of their songs. It is as if you are transported to the main deck of an alien spacecraft, entangled in a passionate space tango that has endured for all of eternity. Many of the tracks have an echoey feel that was reminiscent of Iannis Xenakis’s “Interlude” for the Philips Pavilion in Brussels. Their songs often include samples of both old songs as well as sounds from nature and the world around us. In this way they follow and extend the legacy of music concrete in this new generation of electronic music.
The first track on the album is “Still Rockin,” and it sets the pace of the album. They sample real sounds from the world, such as people speaking. But they also create the feel of recreation of real things through electronic synthesis. For example they include this steadily rising, chirping, that sounds much like a bird flying up and away would, were it made by a computer. There is also a signature “wha-wha” type effect employed in many of their sounds. It creates a rhythmic feel as well as a distinctly electronic wavelength feel to the songs. This is accompanied by what sounds like someone tapping on a metal pipe in an empty cavernous room. It then shifts instantly into a retro-funk type of horn riff, followed by more heavily altered sounds. They are hard to identify as they are unlike most anything I have heard in non electronic music.
Many of the songs follow a similar formula to the first, with various variations throughout. However one thing I found most compelling about nearly every piece was the coherence in sound and tempo throughout each individual piece. It was as if each song had a theme and each sample and electronic sound fit perfectly into an intricately woven electronic tapestry of unrivaled beauty. There is a level of hip-hop and soul that melds into an almost glittery extravaganza. The twinkling or tinkling sounds, something like running your hands through a bowl of tiny metal beads, are reminiscent of the crackling of glass in Xenakis’s interlude. The sounds are often cloud like and certainly ambient, as Pretty Lights layers on sound after sound until it is difficult to distinguish one from the other or the origins of either.
I had the pleasure of seeing them live at the National in Richmond, VA last fall and it was an experience I will not soon forget. One unique aspect to the show was the combination of the main electronic elements with a live drummer providing the drum track. Smith manned what appeared to be some sort of MIDI controller along with the requisite turn tables of any DJ. It was refreshing to see an actual performance, by both man and machine, and not simply a man behind a laptop pressing play. Pretty Lights takes the foundations for electronic music, laid by Xenakis and others, and draws from it and adds to it to create an entirely new and exciting sound.

Faisant suite à « Wyred Folk » ; premier EP sorti en 2005 puis au récent « One By One EP, le premier album de 2econd Class Citizen sort enfin, l’occasion de vérifier si les espoirs entrevus dans les deux précédents essais se confirment sur ce long format intitulé « A World Without ».
Dans un style downtempo/hip hop légèrement psychédélique, assez bien fichu, avec notamment un flow très agréable (featurings de Ceschi, James PHoney, Reindeer) et une instrumentation foisonnante, « A World Without » rappelle par certains aspects, les productions abstract de la fin des années 90 de DJ Shadow, UNKLE ou Dan the Automator
Sans être forcément génial ni pour autant anecdotique, « A World Without » devrait combler les amateurs de hip hop mélodieux. et en guise de mise en bouche, un megamix de 10 minutes réalisé par Phonatic est disponible sur le site du label Equinox Records ou écoutable directement ici.
