Chromeo – Business Casual

Origine du Groupe : Canada , North America

Style : Electro-Disco , Pop

Sortie : 2010

On n’a pas si souvent que ça l’occasion de baisser les vitres de la 309 GTI ,de mettre l’autoradio à fond et de faire cracher le boomer en écoutant un bon vieux disque de dance music. L’occasion
nous en est donnée avec le troisième album de Chromeo  qui se présente, tout simplement, comme le disque le plus fun de la rentrée 2010 !

Composé de deux canadiens, Chromeo joue une musique electro funk disco retro, assez irrésistible, comme a pu l’être en son temps celle des Rythmes Digitales sur l’album Dark dancer, ou encore
l’electro pop régressive et jouissive du moins connus, mais non moins fameux, DMX Krew.

Après un fameux « DJ Kicks » paru en 2009, dans lequel le duo « Dave 1 + Pee Thug » faisait valoir ses références disco 80’s, Chromeo revient dans les mêmes dispositions avec un album produit cette
fois par Zdar, alors que les deux précédentes l’avaient été par Tiga.

Guitares Rock FM, rythmes disco endiablés, synthés vintage, refrains et gimmicks hits des clubs estampillé 1985, le duo s’amuse comme un fou avec les clichés 80 ‘s et persiste dans un genre où il
est passé maitre, à savoir l’art du recyclage toujours à la limite du mauvais gout. Mais justement, leur grande force est de ne jamais sombrer dans le mauvais gout et de toujours trouver le
parfait équilibre pour que leur musique reste parfaitement écoutable et digeste de bout en bout. Résultat on écoutera « Business Casual » en boucle encore pendant une paire de jours.

Clinton Fearon – Faculty Of Dub

Origine du Groupe : North America

Style : Dub , Reggae Instrumental

Sortie : 2008

From Official Site :

Step up to higher education…Clinton Fearon has scaled another musical summit with the release of his eighth album and his first purely dub CD. Faculty of Dub is a higher education in sound. If
his previous work established Fearon’s tenure in the reggae world, the 15 lessons on this album reveal a deeper mastery. They teach us to transcend melody and lyrics, into direct experience. Your
heart and bones will understand-without taking notes.

I’ve been thinking about this album for a long time, Clinton reveals. In Faculty of Dub he gives vent to creative experimentation that builds upon his previous work. The layered sounds, echoes
and reverberations blend into songscapes evocative of the legendary Jamaican sound system engineers. You may recognize some rhythms from earlier recordings, but this album is original in every

Recorded in Seattle with the Boogie Brown Band, he teams especially strongly with singer and musician Ire, whose experience hails from Culture, and Winston Watson of Meditations fame. Horns,
flute, and lead guitar are key ingredients, and respect is due to every member of the band for consistently strong performances. But when Professor Fearon picks up his bass, partnered with ex
Burning Spear drummer Nelson Miller, watch out! You will see why he is also known as Basie, a name earned during the Studio One and Gladiator years. The lessons set forth by these combined
talents will stay with you for life. Clinton Fearon has once again put together a remarkable album that will also be available on vinyl. Your assignment: listen with all your senses. Douglass
Colbert, Rootsbeat International House of Dread, KSER FM Everett, Washington.

Asobi Seksu – Acoustic At Olympic Studios[0]=images/products/TPLP1013CD.jpg&

Origine du Groupe : North America

Style : Folk , Pop

Sortie : 2009

What a start to the year Asobi Seksu are having! Not content with releasing the incredible ‘Hush’ album and undertaking a mammoth tour, they slip in a low key release to boot, talk about keen.
‘Acoustic At Olympic Studios’ isn’t technically a full release, it’s only available at the bands shows and the One Little Indian website so truthfully this is a release specifically for the

I’d heard about this a while before I received it and have to say that I was sceptical on the whole. Asobi Seksu acoustic? How would that work? Considering the first two albums are chocker full
of multi-layered guitars and the newly released ‘Hush’ is awash with big sounds and sugar coated production it wouldn’t work, would it? The answer is yes and no, the band sound great but you are
left wondering whether some of these tracks really suit the acoustic mould.

It takes a while to acclimatise yourself to the contrast in sound, tracks like ‘Familiar Light’ and ‘Walk On The Moon’ that usually soar into the echelons are now condensed and fragile,
exhibiting a different side to their persona. ‘Gliss’ and ‘Blind Little Rain’ work well as acoustic numbers, Yuki’s haunting vocals are perfectly suited to the minimal arrangements. The acoustic
element allows the music room to breath and the listener to explore aspects perhaps unavailable previously. My only issue is with the BIG songs that somehow seem incomplete without the wall of
sound accompaniment, they feel like they are built to reach that crescendo so when they don’t it’s slightly frustrating.

For the unfamiliar ‘Acoustic At Olympic Studios’ will not endear you to the band and would obviously be a bad place to start. For fans of ‘Hush’ this serves as ideal accompaniment that should be
sought out and persevered with.

Travellers – Black Black Minds

Origine du Groupe : Jamaica

Style : Reggae

Sortie : 1977

BLACK BLACK MINDS: While this isn’t exactly the gold nugget suggested by producer King Jammy’s (who presumably came across these tapes while spring cleaning), The Travellers’ one and only long
player is the sort of roots reggae that you just don’t hear anymore. There’s no need for any gimmicks – though the original release is augmented in the usual Pressure Sounds style with DJ cuts
and dub versions. Okay, so The Travellers’ might not have been the most versatile vocal group of their time, and their harmonies are sometimes stretched a little thin, and no, there’s nothing
particularly innovative about the songwriting or the fairly standard roots rhythms, but there’s definitely an element of quintessential reggae goodness at the heart of BLACK BLACK MINDS, and it’s
this that really recommends The Travellers’ record for re-release. It’s the middle of winter here, right now, but I have a feeling that this one is going to sound very nice in the yard when
summer moves in.
