If anyone’s going to lull you into their dream world, it’s Lykke Li, and she’s not the kind of person who dreams the same dream twice. After experimenting with alternative folk (Wounded Rhymes in 2011) and electro pop (So Sad, So Sexy in 2018), the Swedish singer-songwriter appears to have reinvented herself yet again, releasing a concept album that focuses on reflections on love. Recorded in her bedroom in Los Angeles with help from her friend Björn Yttling, the album addresses all the emotions associated with the subject matter: from passion and desire to attachment and rejection. However, you’d be forgiven for thinking this is all just a pretext for Lykke Li to do what she does best: bringing fantasy and reality dangerously close together. Whether her songs draw their inspiration from film as an art form (5Dü&i) or fairgrounds (Carousel), the artist’s signature dreamy sound constantly collides with flawed reality. This cat-and-mouse game between artificial wellbeing and painful reality is particularly evident in Happy Hurts, a track that flits between reassurance and anxiety. Highway To Your Heart is about hard-hitting truth, with morose lyrics such as: “Get high, but it won’t last – I’m still alone”. With her latest concept album, Lykke Li reinvents herself whilst paradoxically staying exactly the same. This neurasthenic, ghostly music gives listeners an insight into her tormented and melancholic world. ©Nicolas Magenham/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.

My Bloody Valentine, the Inner Experience

Thirty years after its release, My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless" remains the craziest album of the 90s. This electric monument in the form of a wall of sound was a product of Kevin Shields' deranged mind. It turned the history of rock upside down and remains a major source of inspiration for many musicians from all walks of life.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.
