Yo La Tengo, Out the Window, 1 992

The song starts with a riff and a drumming intro which are very close
to the one of the famous ‘n fantastic My Sharona by The Knack, then a
heavy and not very original bass follows the hard blues riff. But Yo La
Tengo have so many surprises in their lovely box…very soon (0.50) the
talent appears in the composition and the vocal melody.

Then (1.40) a heavy and quite useless passage restarts….and the brilliant passage comes back (2.35). All
in all, a mixed feeling, for a song (from a record that I recommend,
from which the great film-maker Hal Hartley took several songs for his
soundtracks) that might whatsoever stick in your head.

Neumann, Moon
Thanks so much to my talented, gentle, full of love, sensible and clever mainly monochromatic German friend Martina Millen aka Viktoria King for this fantastic musical discovery ! As I wrote it in the mag with her last fantastic selection,
the piano ending is particulary brilliant. But the whole song is
excellent (and making me think of several songs that I can’t get back in
mind now – I just have Where the Wild Roses Grow by Nick Cave (with
Kylie Minogue) for the moment).

The Stone Roses, Love Spreads, 1 994

In the rock/pop field, difficult to do more groovy than what the Stone
Roses did with this second record of theirs, which had been awaited for
years after their first one which had been a massive success (quite
exaggerated to me, in spite of some incredible tunes like I am the
Resurrrection)
, released in the greatest year of rock ‘n roll History, 1
994, same year than the Blue Album by Weezer, One Hot Minute by the Red
Hot Chili Peppers, Mellow Gold by Beck, Wowee Zowee by Pavement, and so many other stunners.

This one (Second Coming) is austere, without compositions that stand
out, without pop choruses, without evidence. The songs are hard to
differentiate, but the mastery, the long instrumental cavalcades, the
stupendous union of the technical masters are unique.

Bases of
blues in mood ‘n composition except a few songs like Ten Storey Love
Song
, this record is a color rather than any collection of hits. All
over, the feeling of testifying a phenomenon : the guitar quality of
extremely high level of John Squire, who is also a stunning visual
artist.

Two records, this one being the last, a stunning success
for such a small discography, and a huge trace let in music History.
Afterwards, the leader Ian Brown never managed to reach the former
level, getting old so soon under the effects of “some substances”.
