Descriptions du produit

Amazon.fr

Elisabeth Esselink, la Hollandaise qui se cache derrière Solex, est une originale qui ne s'en tient pas à la déclinaison appliquée de ses amours musicales, c'est-à-dire le blues, le garage, le surf et le bon vieux rock'n'roll. Elle est aussi allée piocher ailleurs, donnant du même coup un sacré coup de jeune à ce qui n'aurait pu être qu'un complaisant hommage en forme de musée. La production, franchement lo-fi, ajoute un grain qui sert à merveille l'utilisation de samples piqués çà et là, du côté de ces disques qui moisissent dans les bacs des soldeurs et auxquels plus personne ne veut jeter une oreille. Easy listening, jingles, émissions de télé et bouts de dialogues de films saupoudrent des compositions garanties "vintage" où le beau filet de voix de la chanteuse donne la réplique à l'orgue ou à l'harmonica. Du cinéma pour les oreilles parfaitement mis en scène. --Hervé Comte

Critique

Ethno Beat. Elisabeth Esselink pourrait chanter dans les Rita Mitsouko et Catherine Ringer aurait sa place dans Solex. Ça marcherait sans doute mieux ainsi. Quoique, outre-Manche, Q, NME, The Wire s’émerveillent devant ce bric à brac jazzy-popy où l’on saucissonne les sons, mixe les instruments, sous des éclats de voix frénétiques. Chez nous, à part dans La Revue du Son ou Technikart (même combat), on se demande qui se risquerait à décortiquer ce summum de l’avant-garde sonore. Pourtant, nous avons soutenu des projets plus ardus, mais là, le seul conseil que l’on puisse donner serait de bien écouter avant d’aller chiner chez votre disquaire. À moins d’y chercher de la matière pour vos samples  -- Compact

Par Suman - Publié sur Amazon.com

I've heard countless artists who do the sampling thing. It's all so predictable and limited. But listen to Solex. You absolutely cannot predict Elisabeth Esselink's next move. Not only is it fresh and appealing, it's unsettling, scary, humorous, passionate, naiive AND sophistocated without sounding more artier than thou. How does she pull this off? Say what you will, but it's huge talent. She's completely mastered this genre, and if it's a genre, it's completely invented by Solex. She winds her voice in and out of these complex-yet-deceptively-simple song structures based upon samples. Yet again, I reiterate that sampling can make anything easy if you are not a musician or an artist. The music Esselink creates from samples, however, is extraordinarily clever and well put-together, and takes a mastery that involves a lot more intellect than have the usual wannabes who seek out this type of music tool. Yet, she makes it sound so simple. That, my friends, is indicative of genius. And Elisabeth Esselink is that.

This album must be done justice, I'll be damned if the people of the world take a pass on this one because of some bad review. This is the work of a genius. "Low Kick and Hard Bop" sounds like the female version of 'Odelay'. In each song Solex succeeds in blending several different musical style together perfectly, she created this all with an old sampler and her singing. I haven't come across an album this infectious since Radiohead's Kid A, The Beta Bands Three EP's, DJ Shadow's Endtroducing, or Neutral Milk Hotel's Aeroplane... I can't stop listening to it. It probably spun 6 times yesterday just driving around with friends. Go and download the first song on this album, then buy it. It's amazing.

Solex is the nom de musique of the Amsterdam secondhand record shop owner Elisabeth Esselink, who in the nineties had been a member of indie pop act Sonetic Vet. At De C&D, her record store, the discount bins proved a valuable archaeological source of copyright free found sounds that could be plundered, deconstructed and rebuilt into Spectorised sound assaults, using her vintage eight-track sampler; impressive collages that form the basis of her delightfully surreal and exuberant stream-of-consciousness lyrics, multi-track vocals and left-field tunes. The results have little in common with other sample artists but have a quirkiness and humour that perhaps are closer to British plunderphonic artists such as People Like Us or Listen With Sarah.

By the time of this third album (the others being Solex Vs. The Hitmeister in 1998 and Pick Up in 1999, both recommended), Solex had honed her art and toured extensively with live musicians who had helped translate her found sound concoctions into the context of an onstage performance, so that this becomes a notable progression from the earlier albums, and features Geert De Groot on guitar and Robert Lagendijk on drums, whilst retaining the sense of fun and spontaneity that typifies her musical approach.

On her website Solex describes her found sounds as "Old vinyl, crappy un-sellable CD's (again), television (Wheel Of Fortune!), the `better looking' talk show hosts (they seem to sound better as well), noisy deaf people, films, bootlegs (again), radio, street-noises and animals. The noisy deaf people were my favourites. They do know what they're talking about, but don't have a clue what they sound like (opposite to most musicians)."

In lesser hands, it couldn't work, but Solex has a real gift for creating works of art from these unlikely audio fossils, and is never less than engaging, providing here over 40 minutes of fresh musical weirdness.

Par KRossHoff@aol.com - Publié sur Amazon.com

Solex is, like, that girl who doodled all the time, that you never knew quite what to make of. Her wholesome would-be sex appeal was kind of at odds with her clothing, which was ratty and second-hand enough to qualify as thrift-store chic, but always a little too colorful. You wanted to write her off with epithets like "spunky" and "cutesy," but weren't sure whether she would reject them with an indignant glare or maybe just smile lopsided and pixie away. She's gotten a lot more self-assured, and it's clear that the coolness side of the equation is winning out, though still with that hefty slice of dorkiness which, let's face it, was what cool was all about anyway.
Actually, Solex is the nom du disque of Elisabeth Esselink, whose approach to sample-based music is, if nothing else, unique. For her third long-player, the satisfactorily titled "Low Kick and Hard Bop" (it sounds right, don't bother about what it might mean), she has apparently abandoned her working method from the last record, of bootlegging her own copyright-free samples from live performances, and returned to salvaging bits from "unsellable" CDs at her Amsterdam record boutique, along with found sounds and folderol. We're talking about tiny snippets - a few xylophone notes here, a fragment of a horn riff there - culled wittily, but wielded musically. Whereas someone like Beck might use a sample for its humor value, but fall back on live instrumentation, Solex sculpts Beck-like music beds with nothing more than a live drummer and an array of carefully placed samples. Take the album's opening title track as an example: Esselink's oddly Asian-sounding voice (reminiscent of Cibo Matto's Yuka Honda) intones "Elisabeth!" repeatedly, as though to renounce the first two albums' excessive reliance on the Solex moniker as a source for wordplay. Then we get a percolating drum stutter, jumpstarted by a bluesy harmonica blast, which repeats and is soon followed with a slinky guitar slide, before the drums burst into a funky loping groove. The drums here strut and shuffle, but later on they're just as likely to swing or bossa nova, and the musical accompaniment might be equally varied.
Complementary, but somehow also in opposition, to Solex's modernist-retro sound collages are her loopy lyrics. Take the full text of the tune "Ease Up You Fundamentalist!": "They were all using the mirrors to study their mouth movements for themselves/They were all learning that the curve is the thing when making up lips." These are absurd nonsense stories delivered with an earnestness and quizzicality that we usually associate with children or foreigners. Esselink does fall into the latter category (and her pride in her Dutchness is evident in titles like "Amsterdam is not LA" and "You Say Potato, I Say Aardappel"), but there is certainly something self-consciously childlike here as well. Is her English accent really as awkward as her bizzarely stressed deliveries would have us assume? Doubtful. No, she's a crafty one. Odd, because a lot of the appeal of Solex's music is it's charming disingenuousness. Clearly, a lot of it is calculated. Come to think of it, that doesn't make it any less charming. (6/10)

The songs on this album are entirely made from samples, except for the vocals (most of them). It's hard to describe an album that is literally a music collage. Its a melting pot of hip-hop, jazz, reggae and folk. This could also be the product of Sister Nancy and The Shaggs making an album together. This is intellectual and sophisticated pop with lyrics and sounds that will either annoy you or intrigue you.
