Behind the long title, a long album: in fact, this is two albums run together. This release brings together the last two works from this singer, writer and musician. Angel’s previous two albums, All Mirrors (2019) and Whole New Mess (2020), were written as one double album, before finally coming out separately (as it happens, Whole New Mess was recorded before All Mirrors, even though it came out later... go figure). Indeed, these two records are twins, with some tracks appearing in different versions on both. This new release sees them reunited at last, accompanied by alternative studio recordings, B-sides, a cover version and some remixes. Angel Olsen has explained that this is her way of bringing a certain period of her life to a close before starting a new chapter. On this work, she is setting forth her own vision of a deconstructed style of folk: the effect is something of a mix of Cat Power and the more lyrical flights of Lana Del Rey (take, for example, (New Love) Cassette or (Summer Song) on Whole New Mess).  Having stepped out beyond her earlier, smaller audience made up of just a "happy few", she is now flirting with a rather more mainstream crowd, as her selection of remixes suggests. The likeable Johnny Jewel, mastermind of the Chromatics, who featured on David Lynch's Twin Peaks: The Return (2017) lends a cool sound and some dancefloor beats to All Mirrors while master of hits Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars) brings a darker hip-hop touch to (New Love) Cassette. Another novelty here is the rather simple cover of the Roxy Music hit, More Than This, which has a whiff of karaoke about it. It may even be a deliberate nod to the version sung by Bill Murray in Sofia Coppola's classic film Lost In Translation. Songs of the Lark and Other Far Memories is a kind of big cake: a sumptuous birthday cake marking Angel Olson's transition out of the smaller circles of indie rock and out into the big wide world. © Yan Céh/Qobuz

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.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.
