Death Cab For Cutie’s eighth album, Kintsugi, highlighted the band’s multiple fractures. Guitarist Chris Walla was leaving the project and Ben Gibbard’s marriage was collapsing. Two divisions that led to a negative and burdensome atmosphere for the group, and to an interesting but rather dark album as a result. Three years later, the sad times finally seem to be over. Thank You for Today offers more cheerful aspects and unites the long-time teammates: Ben Gibbard, Nick Harmer, Jason McGerr and two studio partners, Dave Depper and Zac Rae. Like for Kintsugi, the album is produced and mixed by the talented Rich Costey, known for his productions of Muse, Franz Ferdinand and Fiona Apple. A strong background that comes through on the very first listen.
Death Cab For Cutie’s greyish phase truly seems over. Optimism is taking over for a quiet rebellion. With I Dreamt We Spoke Again, the band starts off with a game of distortions that covers Gibbard’s voice in a retro style. Then comes the track that best represents the band’s new mind-set. Gold Rush (somewhat reminiscent of Primal Scream’s Screamadelica) borrows its melodic line from Yoko Ono’s Mind Train. More pop, catchy and airy, Death Cab For Cutie are not breaking the elements like on Kintsugi. They rely on a thorough work of modelling and rebuilding from their own experiences and inspirations to reach this at once retro and contemporary rock atmosphere. © Anna Coluthe

Pavement's Not-So-Secret Genre-Making History

Thirty years ago, Pavement set a road map for '90s indie rock—lo-fi, whip-smart, Gen-X cynical—with their career-defining Slanted and Enchanted. (And yes, the band came to define the term "slacker rock.") You can still hear their influence on artists like Courtney Barnett, Deerhunter, Beabadoobee, Parquet Courts, Kiwi Jr., and many more. And, of course, they famously, majorly inspired Blur's 1997 self-titled album, in effect changing the face of Brit-pop without even meaning to. As Pavement continues on their first tour since 2010, here's a look back at the band's history through their epochal records.

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.

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.
