Sparklehorse "It’s a wonderful life"

   Bizarre de dire que “la vie est merveilleuse” en ce mois de septembre 2001… Et pourtant, quand Mark Linkous le dit dès la première chanson de son album, cela paraît moins incongru : il faut dire que le dérangé leader de Sparklehorse, qui enregistre au fond de sa tanière (où il a convié John Parish, le comparse de PJ Harvey, à venir mettre un peu d’ordre), a inventé la comptine pop pour grands enfants.

sparklehorse its-a-wonderful-life-4e8062eb270c0   Une comptine qu’il exécute lui même, qu’il chante à travers un vieux micro qui rouille jusqu’à sa voix plaintive. “It’s a wonderful life”, une chanson sur laquelle il a collé de petits bruits (il le fait aussi en concert), comme un enfant colle des gommettes sur son dessin : ça ne sert à rien, mais ça personnalise… “Gold day” avec son orgue, son melotron, est un hymne, mais un hymne qu’on fredonne pour soi, en secret. Polly Jean Harvey est venue (elle chante sur “Piano Fire” chanson un peu plus remuante, et sur “Eyepennies”, ballade servie par quelques notes de piano. Adrian Utley (guitariste de Portishead) et Nina Person (chanteuse des Cardigans) aussi sont venus. “Dog door” commence par un son sorti de nulle part, et un bruit grinçant, avant qu’une voix comme on en entend surtout dans les disques de métal, ne vienne définitivement planter l’ambiance. Quand on dit “planté”, chez Sparklehorse, ce n’est pas péjoratif : c’est parce qu’elle est plantée (et aussi pas mal barrée) que cette musique va droit au cœur. Attention album habité ! Hanté devrait-on dire… Car le son sort de partout, dégouline des enceintes, la production est riche, mais fragile. Elle est signée Dave Fridmann, c’est dire si c’est un gage de qualité. “It’s a wonderful life” est un de ces disques qui prennent une ampleur monstre la nuit, comme les “Blue moods of Spain” de Spain. Un disque monstrueux justement, qui balaie en quelques dizaines de minutes rondement menées, la plupart des disques qui nous accompagnaient ces derniers temps. S’il ne fallait retenir qu’un disque, un seul, en ces temps de WTC bombardé, donc pas tellement gais, ce serait celui là. Mark Linkous, qui vit pas très loin de New York (il est voisin des Mercury Rev, qui vivent dans les Catskills Mountains), signe la B.O. idéale pour le spleen d’un monde chancelant, qui doute sous les bombes, qui vit avec la menace.

  3. Certainly, the most well-known roulette games include American Roulette, French Roulette, and European Roulette. These are the classic roulette games that were invented over a hundred years ago. Welcome bonus: If you play online roulette for real money, a welcome bonus is usually the largest type of promotion you will find. To claim your bonus, you must be a new customer and have made your first deposit. Your deposit is matched 100% by the casino in the form of bonus funds. A rollover requirement is applied to the bonus funds total, sometimes as much as 35-50x. That might seem high, but it is standard as this is free money that the casinos are taxed on and they want to ensure players don’t just take the money and run. Choose your bet – we recommend that you treat your free money like it’s real money. Why? Because when you decide to move from free roulette to cash roulette you’ll have the right betting habits to make sensible wagers. Over the years, many variations of this game have been introduced and can sometimes be found at some of the casinos.

  4. Effects: This is more powerful than some other common mushrooms, with a psilocybin rate of .85. For some reason, this mushroom is known to have a very varied effect, and even mushrooms from within the same patch can have very different impacts. The most common are strange colors and a heightened sense of fun, but some bottlecaps can create terrifying visions. Again, much of this depends upon the individual, but perhaps more than any other species in the genus, there’s a wide variety of strength. The edible products contained significantly less mushrooms than the other options, as the candies, gummies, and capsules contained up to 400 milligrams each. The chocolates — which came in milk, dark salted , coffee, or dark mint — contained as much as four grams. Cultivation of this mushroom has employed thousands of people in Asia for centuries. These mushrooms are popular because they make great culinary companions in addition to their medicinal properties. For best results, incubate your shiitake in hardwood logs without making ground contact, and cover them with a tarp or burlap sack. In a dense wooded area they can continue to fruit for up to six years with no extra effort, making it a perfect beginner mushroom to grow at home. However, psychedelic research was not always so popular. Although research into psilocybin and other related drugs began in the 1950s and ’60s, the federal government’s war on drugs during the 1970s stigmatized psychedelic drugs and made them illegal. The federal government declared them Schedule I drugs, meaning that they have a high potential for abuse and no accepted medical use. Psilocybin is a drug that occurs naturally in some types of mushrooms that grow throughout the world, including in the Pacific Northwest. It is a hallucinogenic at larger doses, which means it causes visual and auditory hallucinations. Taking psilocybin can also distort someone’s sense of time and how they perceive the world around them.   de Mattos-Shipley KM, Ford KL, Alberti F, Banks AM, Bailey AM, Foster GD.
