Fin de journée, tranquille pépère, un petit EP bien cool, facile à écouter comme celui-ci , ça ne se refuse pas. Il est l’œuvre d’un jeune homme qui officie sous le nom de  Superpoze pour le
compte du netlabel Freezec. Sur ce premier essai, elle propose 4 titres hip hop qui rappellent des gens comme Le peuple de l’herbe, Dj Cam  ou le producteur anglais Blockhead. Rien de bien
nouveau dans ce mélange de samples et de beats, mais ça s’écoute sans faim… alors pourquoi se priver ?

V.A – Introducing Townes Van Zandt Via the Great Unknown

https://i1.wp.com/i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa80/forthesakeofthesongltd/FRONTCOVERMedium.jpg

http://www.myspace.com/thetownesvanzandtproject

Origine du Groupe : V.A

Style : Country/Alt-Country & Americana, Country/General, Folk/General

Sortie : 2009

The ideas simple, get a eclectic bunch of unknown (mostly) indie artists together and record an album of Townes van Zandt songs, we’ve already had one van Zandt tribute recording this year from
the great Earle senior, which I blogged about back in March.

Do we need another one ? Absolutely and this one is coming at it from a different angle, does it work – in a word yes. Why? Well the power of Townes writing tends to transcend most music and in
this instance the covers are not half bad either.

The packaging for the CD is great too, the accompanying booklet giving plenty of information on the unknowns encouraging the buyer to go do some research, unknown of course is a relative term and
there are of course some recognisable artists on the CD, here’s the full tracklist.

El Tumbao de Juana – Maqueta

http://eltumbaodejuana.squarespace.com

http://www.myspace.com/eltumbaodejuana

Origine du Groupe : Spain

Style : World Music

Sortie : 2009

From Official Site :

In part by coincidence, in part from years of friendship, at the end of the year 2008 the band El Tumbao De Juana was born. The members (from different parts of Latin America) met each other in
the musical metropolis Barcelona and since then have been mixing their different musical influences. This mixture of Vallenato, Cumbia, Champeta, Raggae and the Catalan folk music has lead to the
incomparable music of El Tumbao De Juana.

That the concept of the band, to spread sensation and lust for life, works well, can be seen in the streets of Barcelona. With their incredible energy, charisma and enthusiasm the band gives
daily concerts in the streets and presents day by day an unbelievable spectacle: Pedestrians from all over the world that have never seen each other before dance, sing and celebrate together the
music of El Tumbao De Juana.

Tracklist :

01 Pajarillo

02 Saco Roto

03 De Lunes a Domingo

04 Que Linda

05 La Reina

06 Pajarillo (Bonus Track)

Féfé – Jeune A La Retraite

Encore un qui va poser des problèmes aux disquaires ! Où ranger Féfé, ex-Saïan Supa Crew ? Trop groovy pour rester au rayon chanson, trop mélodique pour être raccord dans les bacs hip-hop. Le
trentenaire livre un premier album, Jeune à la retraite, gorgé de bonnes ondes. A ranger, sans hésitation, sur l’étagère des belles surprises.

Sac à dos vissé sur les vertèbres, look de tortue ninja, Féfé (ou Féniksi) a tutoyé le succès avec son groupe, le Saïan Supa Crew. Mais, après la séparation du collectif rap éclectique en 2007,
ce trentenaire originaire de Clichy-la-Garenne se trouvait un peu trop à l’étroit dans le strictement hip-hop. Il avait envie de soul, de reggae et de chanson. Envie de retrouver l’ambiance de
ses dimanches en famille au son de Fela Kuti, Bob Marley ou Sam Cook. Envie de faire plus que « jouauter », à l’oreille, avec les instruments qui lui passent dans les mains.

Et l’artiste a travaillé. Dans la lignée de G padpo sur le premier album du Saïan, Jeune à la retraite propose une alliance détonante entre guitare sèche, batterie bien en avant, cuivres
chaleureux et voix mi-rapée mi-chantée. Fils caché de Tété et Outkast, Féfé n’a pas fait les choses à moitié. Il est allé solliciter Dan The Automator, producteur mythique et co-créateur de
Gorillaz. Leur collaboration va laisser des traces tenaces sur les pistes de danse : Dans ma rue et son gimmick reggae ou C’est comme ça, véritable éruption de bonnes vibrations.

Entouré de musiciens solides, le trentenaire caresse aussi bien la funk (Mes héros) que le reggae (Ride Home en duo avec Patrice). On comprend pourquoi il aura mis dix ans pour accoucher de ce
premier disque. Quelque soit l’habillage, limite Yelle sur VPC ou complètement acoustique avec Être père, Féfé reste juste, à la fois sensible et espiègle. La preuve, grâce à ce Jeune à la
retraite, que ça a du bon de vieillir.

Soundpool – Mirrors In Your Eyes

https://babylonburnradi0.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/soundpool-mirrorsinyoureyes.jpg?w=300

Origine du Groupe : North America

t’s pretty amazing that a music scene as short-lived and ill-defined as “shoegaze” could have such a lasting effect. Named, to the bands’ chagrin, for the disinterested way they would look down
at their feet while playing, the “shoegazers” created ethereal, often majestic sounds by camouflaging their guitars with layers of effects until they sounded more like synthesizers.

The style had its roots going back to texturalists like Brian Eno and Robert Fripp, and was more directly influenced by boundary-pushing indie pop bands like Felt, Cocteau Twins, Kitchens of
Distinction, and the Jesus and Mary Chain. The British “indie dance” craze of the early 1990s gave the shoegazers a ticket to brief stardom, in the UK at least. The sculpted guitar haze worked
surprisingly well with the then-prevalent shuffle rhythms. You could count the major shoegaze bands, all of them British, on one hand. Ride, Slowdive, Lush, and Chapterhouse are the usual
suspects, though there were others, some lumped in erroneously because the critics had nothing better to do. When the Happy Mondays and Jesus Jones faded from public favor, the shoegazers
followed. The scene was dead faster than you could say “Britpop”.

Yet it never exactly died. The original bands split up, but others started to spring up in the mid-1990s. Curiously, many were American. There seemed to be a consistent audience for bands that
inverted the guitar noise of hard rock and turned it into something pretty and ponderous. The rise of electronic dance music gave these bands a new platform for their effects racks and reverb.
And that’s pretty much where things stand, 15 years later.

The New York band Soundpool have been compared to Slowdive, but that really wasn’t fair. On the evidence of their first two albums, Soundpool simply weren’t nearly as good as that. You can’t just
take a mysterious, pretty girl with a pretty voice, add those guitars, and end up with something substantial. Yes, you still have to have songs. And few of Soundpool’s made a lasting
impression.

With Mirrors in Your Eyes, Soundpool have decided to emphasize the disco beats that have always been an element of their music. A good, clean beat that you can dance to can cover a lot of
songwriting shortcomings, but leaders John Ceparano and Kim Field have improved in that area, too. This is still mostly in-one-ear-out-the-other stuff, but it provides a pleasurable, danceable
experience while it’s there. Mirrors in Your Eyes is a very cool-sounding album, and that goes a long way. It could have come out ten years ago, or 15 years ago. Whether that’s a compliment
depends on your perspective.

A crucial key to Mirrors in Your Eyes is that the electronic rhythms work. They’re crisp, sharp, and well-produced, retro rather than dated. Soundpool have gone all-in with the dance thing, too.
These are big, club-ready beats, and better for it. The title track opens the album with a blast of filtered noise and what sounds like an actual synth, before the beat and a surprisingly funky
disco bassline kick in. Field’s thin but beguiling voice slots in beneath the barrage, just where you’d expect it. This is the formula from which Soundpool work for the rest of the album, and
most of the time it succeeds.

The centerpiece is “Makes No Sense”, which finds the all the album’s strongest elements coming together in one three-minute capsule of bliss. With a pounding four-on-the-floor rhythm, acid
bassline, melancholy synths, and interplanetary guitars, the song sounds like someone held up a tape recorder in the middle of a packed club in 1992 while Saint Etienne was blaring. In other
words, glorious. Elsewhere, “Kite of Love” and “Listen” work a more jazzy vibe, while “I’m So Tired” spins out into space in almost gothic fashion.

Inevitably, Mirrors in Your Eyes begins to suffer from some the tracks’ similar template. Some songs go on too long, lost in their own haze. But the only real dud is the limp Jesus and Mary Chain
redux, where Ceparano takes over the vocals. Otherwise, Soundpool’s dancefloor excursion makes a pretty good case for shoegaze’s longevity.
