Nicht einmal der kühnste Optimist hätte Gossip vor drei Jahren eine solche Chart-Karriere zugetraut: nachdem das Trio Beth Ditto (Gesang), Nathan Howdeshell (Gitarre) und Hannah Blilie (Schlagzeug) mit seinen Veröffentlichungen hierzulande zuvor keine Notierung in den Hitlisten verzeichnen konnten, startete die Band im Sommer 2009 einen beispiellosen Triumphzug. Ihr viertes Studioalbum Music For Men erreichte die Top Ten der Media Control Charts und verkaufte sich alleine in Deutschland bis dato mehr als 400.000 (!) Mal (= Doppelplatinstatus).
Neue Maßstäbe setzten die Drei außerdem mit der Single Heavy Cross : fast hundert Wochen, also über zwei Jahre lang, wurde der Song in den deutschen Single-Charts gelistet, peakte auf Position zwei und fand in dieser Zeit weit mehr als eine halbe Million Käufer. In der Folgezeit absolvierten Gossip hierzulande zahlreiche ausverkaufte Tourneen und Festivalauftritte (u.a. bei Rock am Ring ). Bei Award- und TV-Shows wie Bambi , Echo , Schlag den Raab! , TV Total , Wetten Dass..? stahlen sie allen Anwesenden kurzerhand die Show. Kurz gesagt: Beth Ditto und Co. vollzogen innerhalb kürzester Zeit den Sprung von gefeierten Indie-Darlings zu Multiplatin-Superstars.
Im Mai 2012 ist es nun endlich soweit: mit A Joyful Noise erscheint fast drei Jahre nach Music For Men das mit Hochspannung erwartete Follow-Up-Album von Gossip. Produziert wurde der fünfte Studio-Longplayer von Pop-Genie Brian Higgins, der in den vergangenen Jahren u.a. mit Kylie Minogue, Girls Aloud, Saint Etienne, Texas und den Pet Shop Boys gearbeitet hatte. Die erste Single mit dem Titel Perfect World feierte am Freitag, den 16. März, ihre Radiopremiere.
Die Aufnahmen zu A Joyful Noise fanden in Higgins Xenomania-Studio in England und den KBC Studios in Portland, Oregon statt. Gemeinsam entwickelten sie einen Popsound, der nach wie vor alle liebgewonnenen Gossip-Trademark-Features beinhaltet, den die Band andererseits aber auch als eine wesentliche künstlerische Weiterentwicklung empfindet. Die mitreißende Energie des Albums führt Beth Ditto auf ihren Musikkonsum in den vergangenen Monaten zurück. Ich habe das ganze Jahr nur Abba und überhaupt kein Radio gehört , erklärt die Sängerin, deren neue Makeup-Kollaboration mit MAC Cosmetics im Sommer an den Start geht.
Gossip fanden sich ursprünglich 1999 in Olympia im Bundesstaat Washington zusammen und machten mit ihrer unwiderstehlichen Mischung aus Soul, Gospel, Rock, Funk, Disco, Leidenschaft und Rebellion schnell Furore. 2006 gelang ihnen mit dem Album Standing In The Way Of Control und der gleichnamigen UK-Top-Ten-Single der Durchbruch in Großbritannien. Der vorläufige Höhepunkt ihrer Karriere erfolgte drei Jahre später: das von Kritikern gefeierte Album Music For Men überschritt die weltweite Verkaufszahl von einer Million Exemplaren. Ihre Auftritte bei Mega-Festivals wie Coachella in den USA und Glastonbury in Großbritannien zählten zu den Highlights der Konzertsaison und brachten nicht zuletzt den britischen NME ins Schwärmen: Es ist die größte Punk-Rock n Roll-Disco-Soul-Band auf diesem Planeten. Jeder muss diese Band hören und tanzen, als ob es kein Morgen gäbe.
Ihr Auftritt beim diesjährigen SxSW-Festival in Austin, Texas, bildete den Auftakt der Gossip-Live-Saison 2012, die sie in Kürze auch nach Europa führen wird. Für Deutschland stehen bislang Auftritte bei den Festivals Rock im Park und Rock am Ring (1. bis 3. Juni) fest.

Opening is the sublime and fuzzy "Melody Emergency", followed by the absolutely adorable "Perfect World" with pulsing synths, trilling guitars and Beth Ditto's emotive vocals soaring above it all, like something from the eighties.
The album is laden with winners; "Get A Job" is a groovy number with a spoken intro and gut-juddering bass ("It was adorable when you were in your twenties, not so cute anymore now that you're pushing thirty, you better get a job" she urges some freeloading party girl), "Into The Wild" is dark and downbeat. "Get Lost" is a slice of quivery House music, truly spectacular! "Involved" is shimmery Pop, "Horns" is a Funky horn-sprinkled Red Hot Chili Peppers-style rocker, while closing is the airy Rocker "Love In A Foreign Place".
A Joyful Noise indeed.
Beth Ditto is gorgeous, glamorous and grotesque all in the same collision of fashion and performance art. Her voice works great when fronting monster rock songs like "Standing in the Way of Control" - but then on Simian Mobile Disco-produced The Beth Ditto EP, she proved those pipes could just as seductively slink around a dance groove.
The Gossip - much like the Yeah Yeah Yeah's are no mere backing band. They are musicians at the top of their game. From shredding guitars to thundering bass and now heavenly keyboards they create intense, euphoric sonic soundscapes.
Brian Higgins house of Xenomania has produced most of my favorite pop albums of the past 5 years: 5 perfect albums and 22 CD singles by Girls Aloud, Gabriella Cilmi's stunning "Lessons to be Learned" and the two amazing St. Trinian's soundtracks.
Combined, they have created a dance pop masterpiece. This is audio candy for the ears - the production is crisp, the songs are solid, passionate, intimate and massive. The sound evokes as much Girls Aloud as it does Robyn (the funky, twisted Get a Job), early 80's new wave, latter era ABBA and Donna Summer.
A triumph and on track to be the soundtrack to a funky, fabulous summer.
The opening song, "Melody Emergency" is a catchy tune that is mostly flared from Rock/Pop music. Lighten with the poppy drums and beats, with the fun and outrageous guitar riffs, and Beth's voice and lyrics, makes this song an instant favorite. The song uses catchy references like, "So you're not a rock 'n' roller, and there's nothing wrong with that" and "You can't deny the animal in you" from the already amazing verse, and then booming out into a oldies "Ooh" and she spats "Animal" and "Emotional". The bridge becomes a soft-pop melody, with a small keyboard in the background as she softly sings (For Beth), "Each of us loyal to the night" and then shouts back out into the dancy chorus. This song is an instant for me.
"Perfect World" is a soft Seventies Rock-N-Roll, song, but also mixed with modern Pop/Rock music. She starts singing with a deep vocal, "I put a wish in... Made it my mission" and then shouts out, "Relax, it's only dreaming facts" as the chorus booms in. And by the time it reaches the next verse, it is a soft bass-drums style like the first verse, as she sings, "A church, a place to fit in, a new religion", and then booms out back into the chorus. And then the bridge is too epic to stand, as her loud vocals mix with some drums and strings and some synths, "Don't get mad, you did your best and now it's all in the past to stay" and then she booms back out into another beautiful chorus. The song then fades out as she's humming melodically. Absolutely beautiful single.
"Get A Job" is a fun song, about a "Poor little rich girl" who doesn't know "Where the money went", as she stays out partying, living everyday like it's a weekend. It's a put-down song, as Beth uses her powerhouse voice with soft beats and bass. And then when the chorus comes, it becomes a disco-pop song, with a hint of Rock. As she confronts with, "Girl, you better get a job!" and with the epic guitars in the backing track, the song becomes instant flavorful. Then it calms down into the next verse, as she spits more put-down lyrics, and then back into the chorus as she almost seems to feel sympathy as she sings, "I know it's hard". Then she begins the talking intro, "I'd love to stay and party, but I gotta go to work", and then it goes into the calmest part of the song, the bridge, but quickly boosts itself into the catchy chorus before fading down. Awesome and catchy.
"Move In The Right Direction" is a fun twist on modern dance music. At first it almost sounds disco, as she sings about herself "Moving in the right direction", and then she spats into the chorus. The chorus sounds just like stuff you would hear from the radio, as she sings, "I'm doing fine, getting better one day at a time". And then it goes into a heavy (Pop) instrumental. Her backing vocals are awesome in the song, and as soon as you listen you will remember it. Then after the next chorus and verse, it goes into an epic guitar verse, before just a vocal on synth bridge, "Never say never, starting over, it's not perfect but it's getting closer" (Memorable). And then it goes back into it's epic chorus before going out into guitar solos and then slowly fades. Awesome single!!!
"Casualties Of War" is the most "Ballad" of the album, as it starts with drums and slow guitar, and Beth's vocals comes and instantly makes the song. "Not quite but close, as though I'd seen a ghost", but then when it goes into the chorus, "How are you? I'm doing well..." and my favorite line, "When you fall down do you hear the sound of broken dreams hitting the ground?" and then it goes back into it's slow-rock verse, as she sings about "A good fight" and "What goes around comes around, tenfold", before boosting itself back into the beautiful chorus, "Baby, please, we're casualties of war...". And then it goes into a Poppy bridge as she whispers, "A lost cause, I knew it was", before quickly becoming the melodic oldies song into the chorus, "I'm not as strong as you thought I was". The chorus repeats before the song ends. It is memorable favorite (Even the ending with the bouncy synths).
"Into the Wild" is a darker song, with a bass-on-vocal verse (With Hannah's drums), "And I quickly became your worst fear", before it bursts into "In the wild, to the wild, we'll self-destruct together, I'm part of you now..." and then it goes back into the slow verse. Beth's voice is high-pitched and booming as usual (Good thing), talking about "Home", and then goes back into the beautiful and melodic chorus, before going into an instrumental break. Beth's enchanting vocals in the bridge are impressive, "Taking it to far" and "I existed for you". The song instantly becomes a put-down song, before coming back into the chorus with, "It's all over now", and then slowly fades out. The song is easy to not forget.
"Get Lost" is a House and Disco type song, with it's sixties flare, as it goes "Something I could look forward to" And into the chorus with, "You're dancing to the beat of a different drum", and "The past won't do it now", before slowing down to a bouncy synth as she sings, "Is this desperate enough?", and then it goes on with the dancy piano as she sings, "Don't get caught up in the past", before going back into the powerful chorus, "You could never feel where I was coming from". The song slows down as it goes into an instrumental break. The heavy synths and drums make it House, Trance, etc, etc, before it goes into it's disco chorus, with the keys and the synths and drums and beats... The song is catchy, and won't leave your head until the next song gets in your head. The song is one of my personal favorites.
"Involved" is the next track, with a slow-pop, dark sound, as it gives off a distinctive feel of the eerie album art. The song begins with bass and heavy beats, as she sings, "I'm beginning to wonder what you look like" and "You were full of yourself, assuming and cold", before it goes into the bouncy and catchy chorus, as she sings, "I tremble when we touch" and "I'm not above the rest of us" as her powerful vocals shout out into a gorgeous and glamorous bounce. The next verse becomes a bit less dark, and more bouncy, and groovy, as she sings, "A bad mistake, and that's putting it nice", before screaming back into the chorus with, "Who did you think I was?" as her vocals become irresistibly desirable. Then the song takes a more House inspired feel with the bridge, "All of the nights I sat at home and cried" and "You took more then you gave". The song then bumps out into the dancy chorus and becomes completely irresistible. The song is one of my favorites, also!
"Horns" is the next song, as it goes all out with a Garage Rock, Party song, about how "The beat goes on". The song becomes an awesome and lively epic, in the chorus she shouts "A real rude awakening". and then calms down into the verse, as she sings, "Anything can sound absurd, depends on how you listen" the song is the most song that is meant to be a fun-dancy song, I assume, as she screams back into the chorus, "When the fires gone, oh, no, no..." in a R&B almost sounding tone. The song is street-music material, and it fades out into the first verse again, as she sings, "I heard it from a little bird". The song is a fun and dancy addition to the Gossip song family.
"I Won't play" Is a dance-pop song, as it's bass and light guitar and drums as she sings, "It's a mystery how you sleep at night". Before it goes into the catchy chorus with "I'm on a first-name-basis with your victims of love", and then she goes back into the calm verse, "Common decency, imagine the nerve" and then quickly it bursts into another chorus, "Then I won't play if it means losing to you". The song becomes almost a common rock song as she screams, "And if blame is the name" and "Is the name of the game", and then the song fades out with her common, "Oh, woah"'s. The song is one of the most epic songs of the year!
The closing song, "Love in a Foreign Place" is an epic, modern Dance-Pop song, but still a flare of Rock-n-Roll. The verse is almost a robotic melody as she sings, "They look right through me as I'm passing by", and "I put my makeup on and head for the other side of town". The song then bursts into a booming heavy Dance pre-chorus, "The city speaks to you" and "The end is coming, beginning is near", then the song becomes a dancey-yet-oldies song with, "I fell in love in a foreign place, I could stay forever", but quickly turns to an epic dance song with, "It's now or never". The song then dies down into the next verse as she sings, "Nowhere could ever tie me down", before powering up into the pre-chorus again, "So much to live for, so much to lose" and "Anything you look for, you'll find it here" before repeating the chorus, but with a new addition, "I fell in love as the world was ending/ Not getting any younger/ I feel life taking over", before repeating the second verse, "All I ever wanted was so much more then life in a small town". The song then goes into the epic chorus again, as she does her "Woos" in the background, until the song slowly and epically fades out.
And that's the album. I recommend you buy it. You don't need a Mp3 for "Perfect World" or "Move in the Right Direction", for all of the album is phenomenal, and will not disappoint you. <3
Beth Ditto, Nathan Howdeshell and Hanna Billie. <3
