Nearly 30 years after publishing his first album under the pseudonym Smog, Bill Callahan has become an icon of Americana, indie folk and alternative country. The fifty-something American songwriter has always excelled with his sharply disillusioned songs; however in recent years, the singer has gotten married and even become a father! Enough upheaval to give him material to make music from for the time being. Thus, Callahan draws material from his everyday life for the first time. Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest holds a few unknown details about his life at home, but Mr. Smog’s talent is such that he manages to convey these anecdotes with such precision that the music still has a real depth to it. He pairs this with a level of instrumentation that is pared back to the extreme: a simple folk guitar here, a touch of lap-steel guitar there, a dash of Mellotron or a few drops of double bass elsewhere… Relaxed, sensible but not necessarily too smooth, Bill Callahan enters this new stage of his life by delivering his most profound album yet. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

And then Nirvana Killed Rock ‘n’ Roll

Thirty-two years ago, 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.

Shooting Big Star

It took a short legacy of only two years and three albums for Big Star to enter the rock 'n' roll pantheon. Unsuccessful in the beginning of the 70’s, Alex Chilton and Chris Bell’s band is now acclaimed as one of the most influential of its kind.

Interpol, fade to black

At the dawn of the new millennium, when garage was king, the New York quartet that then became a trio exploded onto the scene by reviving the dark romanticism of 80’s post-punk. But over their six albums, would the grace that touched Interpol become obsolete?
