Dorian Concept – Joined Ends


Her Pears Taste Like Ears



On a tous croisé dans notre vie un gars sympa, un type gentil. Celui qui est au fond de la classe, mais qui ne fout pas le bordel. Il est discret, un peu rêveur, pas assez charismatique pour être le jeune loup ni assez brillant pour être le binoclard du premier rang. Il passe presque inaperçu durant l’année, évitant questions pièges et mises en avant. Au boulot, c’est le mec planqué derrière son ordinateur, à ne jamais faire de vague, un peu suiveur, mais toujours là pour rendre service ou faire une heure supplémentaire histoire de te dépanner. Tu ne ferras pas ta vie avec, tu ne l’inviteras que peu lors de tes soirées délurées, et pourtant, à chaque fois que tu le côtoies, tu passes un moment vraiment agréable, à rêvasser en regardant le ciel, avec des silences dans la discussion, pourtant jamais gênant. Un mec normal.

Dorian Concept, c’est un peu ce type-là, qui avait sorti une galette en 2009, gentille digression bass music qui sortait en pleine bourre “nu-abstract”  avec les Nosaj Thing, Depth Affect ou Flying Lotus, qui se sont depuis réfugiés dans d’autres genres. When Planets Explode  était un bon disque, qui n’avait rien de spécial, qui pouvait presque être qualifié de suiveur, mais qui déroulait une recette sacrement réussie et maîtrisée, avec un axe fort sur les mélodies (ce qui est toujours une bonne chose). Le musicien a depuis opéré une quasi-disparition à part quelques éparses EP, pour revenir sans prévenir avec un album qui semble à mille lieux de son prédécesseur, en mode brochette de douceurs.







Dorian Concept ne va quasiment plus s’embarrasser avec ce fameux nu-abstract qui sonne désormais plutôt poussiéreux. L’album sera blanc, lumineux, optimiste. L’introduction The Sky Opposite, drôlement belle, suffirait pour résumer la direction prise par ce nouveau LP : Un croisement entre Kettel, Baths et un Run Into Flowers de M83, de la mélodie qui s’emballe et des synthés guillerets, une approche quasiment pop d’une tirade electronica à sourires. C’est léger, beau comme tout, ça rappelle autant Gooom Records que les teen movies américains passés en slow motion.

Et toute la première partie de disque ne se déparaitra jamais de cette légèreté ô combien nécessaire pour nos palpitants trop souvent enchainés. Ann River, Mn est un pur diamant de pop bricolée, d’electronica dansante, avec petites voix cachées et mélodie entrainante. Manège cassé et nostalgique, plein de couleurs chaudes et de chants guillerets, on frôle le petit tube de chambre, le morceau que l’on va écouter le matin pour se remettre sur pied, à chercher l’espoir perdu dans un quotidien morne et décérébré. Comme si Mûm se décidait de jouer sur la répétition plus que la chanson, ce deuxième morceau commencera une fresque heureuse, entre longs morceaux insouciants (Mint), cavalcades ouatées (Nest Nest) et abstract heureux à la Bibio (l’euphorique et imparable Clap Trap 4, qui rappelle Ambivalence Avenue, mais de façon plus rieuse).

Sur la première moitié du disque, seul Draft Culture donne des coups de latte et sort du carcan “electro joviale”, malgré une introduction toute champêtre. Le morceau mute rapidement en bombinette dancefloor un peu sale, à coup de bassline bien grondante et mélodie de milieu de nuit. Oui, la mélodie papillons-dans-le-ventre sera bien de la partie, et les oiseaux tournent toujours autour des têtes, mais ici, l’objectif est plus de fracasser des nuques plutôt que de courir dans les hautes herbes. Morceau de folie en constante mutation, un des highlights du disque, sandwich club abritant un cœur de guimauve dégoulinant et sucré.




Mais alors, est-ce que Dorian Concept a abandonné toute velléité abstract / bass music ? Pas tant que ça. Ça balance du son bien massif, des instrues qui claquent, mais cette fois, on est dans le bigger than life, dans la mélodie rouleau-compresseur, dans l’émotion quasi trop présente. Mais quand c’est bien fait, pas besoin de bouder son plaisir. The Few est aussi dans l’imparable, dans le tube, dans l’entêtant, là encore proche des exercices de Bibio. Wrong Rythm Studies, bonus track japonaise bizarrement placée en milieu d’album, ressort les anciens exercices de Dorian, avec une bass music plus agressive et saccadée, bien plus portée sur le beat que la mélopée à chanter sous la douche, et fait du bien entre deux fresques sucrées. Trophies, qui commence comme un Clark cassé, fait aussi plaisir dans sa progression, plus calme mais tout aussi syncopée. Les apparats sont plus électroniques, moins pop, plus directs. Longue montée d’arpèges qui s’enroulent à n’en plus finir, c’est beau, et c’est dans cet exercice que Joined Ends excelle.

Et après le morceau uptempo de la première moitié du disque, Dorian Concept nous réserve une autre petite surprise avec 11.04.2012, morceau house fantomatique superbe, mélodie attrape cœur bouffée par le brouillard, soirée en club passée avec l’oreille collé au mur de béton, à tenter d’écouter ce qui se passe dans la salle voisine. Synthé qui pleure et track qui ne démarrera jamais, laissant les fantômes chialer leur peine en buvant des shots, aveuglés par de tristes stroboscopes. Peine de vit et vies cassées, on ne savait pas Dorian Concept capable de voler les cœurs avec de la house simplissime, mais belle comme jamais.

Le disque finira sur une tirade ambiant mélodique portant bien son nom, Tried (Now Tired), reprenant les gimmicks ensoleillés de l’album, mais sur un mode plus las et lent, légèrement à bout de souffle, même si épique (avec un petit clin d’œil à Secret Of Mana peut-être ?)




Oh, clairement, cet album (au bien joli titre) n’invente rien. On est dans l’accessible, dans le gimmick mélodique qui marche à tous les coups, dans la progression sucrée frôlant le fan-service. Joined Ends est facile, assimilable dès la première écoute, presque sans réelle surprise. Et pourtant, que l’écoute est belle. Le plaisir est simple, direct, dans fioriture. Comme depuis des années, Ninja Tune n’est plus dans l’innovation, mais sort encore un disque sympa, lumineux, réussi de bout en bout. On n’est pas là pour marquer l’histoire, loin de là. Mais nous coller quelques papillons dans le ventre c’est certain, et c’est déjà ça.
