BRACE! BRACE! : Controlled weirdness

Ecouter ...

PRESS

Inspirée par l'ouverture des chakras prônée par Timothy Leary autant que par la pop glam des 80's aux 2010's (on pense beaucoup à Red Kross, Holy Shit ou Unknown Mortal Orchestra), la musique de Brace! Brace! impressionne surtout par sa maîtrise mélodique et ses bonnes idées d'arrangements. En témoigne "Underground" morceau clippé qu'on vous présente ci dessous et petit milk shake vitaminé aux doux accents psychotropes, dont n'osent plus rêver Wayne Coyne et ses Flaming Lips depuis belle lurette.
The Drone

On savait la praline rose être une spécialité de la capitale des Gaules, force est de constater qu’ils ne sont pas maladroit non plus lorsque qu’il s’agit de grosses pralines rock comme en témoigne cet Underground, premier extrait aux subtiles notes psychédéliques du nouvel EP des lyonnais de Brace! Brace!
Wall of Sound

Quiconque prendra un instant pour écouter "Underground" le premier titre de ce nouveau disque , sera convaincu du bien fondé de répandre la bonne parole. En effet : mélodies pop malignes, son racé et maîtrisé, qualité d'écriture et goût du contraste, tout est là. Le clip animé minimaliste viendra vraisemblablement affirmer la différence du groupe et ouvre allègrement l'appétit pour la sortie de leur EP Controlled Weirdness. 
Villa Schweppes

Soucieux de tirer son épingle du jeu, le quatuor distille un garage à la sensibilité pop (ou inversement) qui montre un peu plus de cœur et de finesse que la moyenne des candidats actuellement en lice. A l’angle de la fronde qui file tout droit et de l’atmosphère langoureuse, se situe donc Brace ! Brace ! qui délivre avec retenue et subtilité des moments presque dream pop, comme suspendus autour du traditionnel vacarme de leurs collègues, qu’ils cautionnent par à-coups. Vite intégré, le groupe a déjà choisi son camp : celui de l'envoûtement, à coups de mélodies fines et de garage bleue.

BAD RELIGION : The empire strikes first

The Empire Strikes First... 14 songs that are fresh, focused, and absolutely alive in the way that great rock 'n' roll energizes everything it touches. It's been a long road from their early-80s beginnings, but these days, the primary concerns of Graffin and Gurewitz are not the band's intricate (and subtle) years-long evolution; they're first and foremost topical songwriters focused on domestic chaos and its global manifestation. Bad Religion is, after all, the outfit that, during the first Gulf War in 1991, shared a Maximum Rock 'n' Roll split seven-inch with radical MIT professor Noam Chomsky, who, like them, is locked into the tense present and dedicated to exposing the forces who lie and disguise to deepen and enforce human misery.

The truth is that after 20+ years, Bad Religion meet the present day not only unfettered by nostalgia, but hardwired into the moment. Fans take the band's growth and standards for granted. It's tempting to say-- though impossible to prove-- that the The Empire Strikes First is a such a terrific album because vocalist Graffin and guitarist Gurewitz, the band's most important creative forces, are responding to the death, desolation, and destruction of war, and to the concurrent attacks on the Bill of Rights; it seems more than just a happy accident that the band has just delivered one of its most charged and inspired records in years.

BAD RELIGION : True North

Punk rock Pioneers Bad Religion have released their new album True North on Epitaph Records. The new album, already a favorite among fans, has been greeted with worldwide critical acclaim and praise.

Produced by the band and Joe Barresi, True North celebrates the power of cogent punk in the face of personal pain and adversity. On the new album, the storied band deliberately revisits and refines the powerful and melodic Southern California sound they helped to define. “We went back to our original mission statement of short concise bursts of melody and message,” co-songwriter and guitarist Brett Gurewitz explains. “The intent was to record stripped down punk songs without sacrificing any conceptual density.”

BAD RELIGION : Age of unreason

Acclaimed Los Angeles punk rock band Bad Religion's new album entitled Age of Unreason is out now on Epitaph Records. Since the group’s formative years they have steadfastly advocated for humanism, reason, and individualism. Now, when these values are in decline and nationalism and bigotry are on the rise, Bad Religion’s message has never been more essential. Age of Unreason delivers a powerful and inspired response - a political and deeply personal treatise on all they believe in.  

“The band has always stood for enlightenment values,” co-songwriter and guitarist Brett Gurewitz explains. “Today, these values of truth, freedom, equality, tolerance, and science, are in real danger. This record is our response.”

The songs on Age of Unreason are both furious and meticulously crafted. There are references to contemporary events; racist rallies, Trump’s election, the erosion of the middle class, Colin Kaepernick’s protest, alternative facts, conspiracy theories, and there are homages to the literary and philosophical works that have long inspired the band.

The track “Chaos From Within” uses the band’s iconic fast, powerful and melodic sound to examine the current border wall controversy with the lyrics, “Threat is urgent, existential / with patience wearing thin / but the danger's elemental / it’s chaos from within.” As co-songwriter and lead singer Greg Graffin says, “Throughout history, walls have been used to keep the barbarians out, But it seems to me that the truly barbaric aspect of a civilization is the chaos that comes from within.” 

Age of Unreason is Bad Religion’s 17th studio album and was co-produced by Carlos de la Garza. It is a timely work of immense power and one of their very best. Society’s step backwards has propelled the legendary band decidedly forward. There is an elevated craft in the way the song “Candidate" vividly evokes the current president, “I am your candidate / I am bloody lips and makeup /I'm your caliphate, opioids and mutilation / a celebrity and my name is competition.” Another track, entitled “The Approach,” addresses the possible demise of democracy with the lyrics, “There’s a moral and intellectual vacuum / and you're right to be lookin' askance / philosophically moribund, revolution hasn't a chance.”

This record is both a dire warning and testament to resilience. The overall message being - seek truth about the world and oneself.  As Graffin, who holds a PhD in the history of science, says, “When I saw all these headlines about how terrible our world had become, I started doing a lot of reading. I read about the French revolution, the American Revolution, the Civil War, and I started to recognize that this is a pattern of history and something we should never venture into. There are ample warnings against it. Every school child should know this but it’s hard to get people to read about these things. Maybe this album can help. Because right now, with social media, we are just playing a version of kill the guy with the ball.”
