Vos pronostics pour le score Pitchfork?

Si Ch. Gainsbourg est à 8.7, selon mon calcul du sens du vent, Utopia devrait être au moins à 9.2 (j'espère secrètement un 9.4-9.6)

Pitchfork semblent en paix avec Bjork depuis Vulnicura (apres le 5.8 de Volta et le 6.2 de Biophilia)

 

Comme 'The Gate' et 'Blissing Me' ont été les 'tracks of the week' je m'attend a un 8+.

Inclassable et difficile à appréhender, souvent, mais toujours très attendue, Björk sort vendredi son nouvel album, "Utopia", disque étrange mais passionnant de renaissance après des mois de douleurs personnelles

https://www.francetvinfo.fr/culture/musique/musique-utopia-la-renaissance-trouble-de-bjork_2481729.html

 

Citation

 

Utopia est une renaissance. Une découverte des applications de rencontre, une quête sex-positive et féministe, où le corps se réapproprie ses envies et son instinct, comme sur “Body Memory” par exemple. Le titre (peut-être le meilleur de ce long album) évoque le moment où, quand l’esprit oublie tout, le corps se souvient — comment être mère, comment être femme, comment être amante

encore une interview pour Fact cette fois et tiens elle parle de la session avec le Wu Tang

 

Citation

Homogenic recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. Here’s something I’ve always wondered about that era in your career, as a big Wu-Tang fan: RZA is said to have recorded with you around that time, but the sessions never saw the light of day. What happened?

Ha! You know… I don’t know! I think what happened was… I wanted these kinda Icelandic, volcanic beats, and I was kind of struggling with it. I had done beats on my albums, but it takes me a long time to make them. And sometimes I get impatient and I want other people to do it, so I sit there and describe to them what I want them to do. So, I was in Spain, and Wu-Tang Clan were supposed to come to Spain. RZA was supposed to come. But then months passed. Then the album got finished and I delivered it. Then RZA was like, “I’m ready! Shall I come to Spain?”

Instead, I went to New York. We wrote a couple of songs together. And I just felt… sometimes when you do things and you don’t plan them it’s magic. And I really think what we made was magic. But I think because it wasn’t part of the whole Homogenic thing and it wasn’t part of what Wu-Tang were doing at the time, it was better as an idea, if that makes any sense?

We met a few times though – my favourite moment was when I did an in-store at Tower Records. I’d never done anything like that before. I turned up – and seven of the Wu-Tang Clan turned up to, like, protect me! I was signing books for an hour, and they sent some of their team, standing there with me. That was one of my all-time favourite moments: I had been on my own, so when they turned up I felt very protected. It was magic. In my eyes, they’re punk. We are definitely [similar] – we do things in, like, a ritual way. The good thing was that I got to hang out with them. I got to see Wu-Tang’s version of New York. Which was pretty cool. A very specific angle on that city that I feel very blessed to have experienced.

 

mais je veux écouter cette magie :bave:

ça fait 20 ans qu'elle nous tease avec cette session

 

et une explication sur le côté multi-couches de l'album

Citation

 I just wanted to disappear and become one of the instruments and lose that heavy narration. All the first songs I wrote [for Utopia] had three or four lead vocals and not one of them was in the front. Part of it was because I was doing a lot of VR and I wanted to do something where my vocals were around you. But also emotionally, I’d just OD’d on the self-importance of the narrator. So a lot of the melodies have like five vocals and none of them are lead vocals. They’re like musical statements.

et aussi, elle est un peu plus honnete sur le "sample" d'arca d'arisen my senses :ange: :

 

Citation

The first song we did was the first song on the album [‘Arisen My Senses’]. I actually found a loop of a mixtape or a SoundCloud thing that [Arca] had done three years prior. I just thought it was the most happiest firework that he’d ever done. I didn’t tell him about it – I just sampled it, sang it to him and he just exploded, you know? I wasn’t really conscious of what I was doing. I was reaching for the most euphoric, antigravity moment that he’d done, and then I exaggerated that by looping it and writing a harp arrangement around it and singing on top of it these ecstatic lyrics. After we’d taken the saddest coordinates of each other and combined them into Vulnicura, we were doing the opposite now. And that was kinda the starting point.

C'est quand meme enorme ce qu'elle a fait. Le sample d'Arca tout nu c'est sympa mais ca casse pas 3 pattes a un canard non plus, c'est comme Mark Bell, ils font des jolies boucles mais ils savent pas quoi en faire.

Bjork en a fait futur tube planetaire.

Je viens de tomber sur une critique relativement dure d'Utopia du site du magazine Le Temps. :furieux:Je trouve que l'article est un peu sec et injustement argumenté. Cela me fait toujours sourire lorsqu'on reproche à Björk de ne pas toucher "le grand public" tel qu'elle pouvait le faire du temps de Debut, Post ou Homogenic.:duel: Comment pourrait-elle faire les mêmes choses maintenant à  52 ans que ce qu'elle faisait à 27 ans. Veuillez pardonner à Madame Guðmundsdóttir  d'évoluer avec l'âge comme le plus commun des mortels... Marre de ces pseudo journalistes qui ne prennent même pas le temps de comprendre le pourquoi du comment d'un album de Björk. La critique doit et peut avoir lieu mais elle doit être argumentée de manière juste.

 

Bonne lecture. voici le lien
