Sebastien Tellier is back with Simple Mind, an album made up of stripped back re-editions of his biggest tracks. This latest offering could easily have come straight out of the 80s with its abundance of CP80, clavinet and DX7 keyboards. Tellier’s vocal performances are unusual. Singing both in English and French with his signature French accent, the dark low rumble of his voice cuts through the tracks like sunlight on a foggy day. Opening with Domestic Tasks, ominous droning elements veer in and out of focus as a groovy, funk infused clavinet jams away in the background. Some would say that the version of Look on this album is somewhat lacking compared to the original. With the palm muted guitars and synth pads long gone, we instead get M83 Junk era sounds. We are greeted by a Yamaha DX7 laying the foundation before Tellier’s signature syncopated Yamaha CP80 piano joins the ensemble. Pitch shifted notes flutter in the width of the stereo field, creating a lush atmosphere that would be right at home in a melancholic 80s drama. Intromission speaks the language of Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein with a soft brass arpeggiated on a vintage synthesiser. But that’s as far as language goes, as the lyrics on this track don’t go beyond the word ‘ah’. This is perhaps slightly pretentious, but the beautifully sombre piano that comes in halfway through makes up for this. Stuck in the past, both in its production and rehashing of past works, Simple Mind is just that: simple. But simplicity is the key to great music! © Tom Oscar Adams/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.
