Joseph Mount, aka the brains behind Metronomy, wrote their new 2019 album all by himself in the English countryside. It comes three years after Summer 08 and ten years after Nights Out, the album that first unveiled the band to Europe and which was re-issued in February 2019 with an assortment of unreleased demos and B-sides. Although nights out are a thing of the past for Joseph Mount since he left Paris to settle down with his children in the countryside, he still manages to conjure up that same feeling of drinking and dancing on a warm summers evening in this new album. The sneak previews that he had been dropping since springtime in anticipation of the album also seemed to follow the same timeless style, notably on Salted Caramel Ice Cream with its retro synth, as well as Lately and Wedding Bells.
The rest of this jam-packed album (with a whopping 17 tracks) has a mix of electro, rock, pop, funk and even deep house (like in Miracle Rooftop), with plenty of hits that will get you up on your feet. But is it enough to get Metronomy into the realm of Blur, Oasis and Elastica? Joseph Mount certainly hopes so as he revealed in an interview with the English press that he is saddened about how the band is not as well-known in his own country, “At what point do you become embraced by the country? You’re stood behind a window, waving frantically. 'We’re here! We’ve been here for ages! Let us in’. And all the time, you see people coming and going and people held up, and you’re… still there. [..] Its only at the very end of your career that they’re like ‘Oh yes, great band. I’ve always liked them’, which is a shame”. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Daniel Johnston, A Troubling, Troubled Icon

No one ever sounded like Daniel Johnston. The little known depressive artist found fame thanks to his peers’ recognition. He passed away on September 11th, 2019, at the age of 58; his discography has slowly become the symbol of naïve, lo-fi and hyper-emotional music. It’s never too late to (re)discover this bona fide underground genius, and his heartfelt, authentic music.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

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”.
