Prolific is the word. King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard are out with their 15th studio album in 9 years of existence (!): 34 minutes of pedal-to-the-floor heavy metal, set to a climate apocalypse sci-fi storyline. “There is no Planet B!” is Stu Mackenzie’s message. The Mad Max-ish vibe, fueled by thrash guitars and a supercharged rhythm section, is a strong contrast to the timid blues-rock-boogie on Fishing For Fishies, released barely 4 months earlier. The key to this 180° turn is a lighter team: the album was recorded with 3 musicians instead of 7. Mackenzie’s vocals are absolutely possessed; he played guitar and bass in tandem with Joey Walker. Michael Cavanaugh is the unrelenting piston behind the drum kit. The references on the record are many: Slayer, Kreator, Sodom – 80s thrash metal legends are a large source of inspiration. The fire and fury of Self Immolate is punctuated by the story of a spaceship dweller who commits suicide by throwing himself into Venus’ atmosphere; these thought-provoking statements about climate change reach their high point on Hell: we are the architects of our own demise. © Alexis Renaudat/Qobuz

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music.
