The Avett Brothers — led by siblings Scott and Seth — have the rare gift of understanding the voice as a musical instrument and not just icing on top. Nowhere is that more clear on their 10th album than the Simon and Garfunkel-esque "Tell the Truth." And it's always worth listening to what the lead vocals have to say. Folksy "We Americans" wonders if you can be patriotic while also wrestling with the ugliness of slavery and "the arrogance of Manifest Destiny." "C Sections and Railway Trestles" uses childbirth for clever wordplay: "You came out looking like a Smurf in a battle/Me in the nosebleeds, mama in the saddle." The piano pop of "Bang Bang" makes a gorgeous bed to lament about moving to the country for peace and quiet — only to live next to armed neighbors "pretending to be Rambo." Perhaps the most delightful surprise is the opener: The Avetts doing '70s rock might suggest some Southern jam session, but with stomping drums and searing guitars, not to mention a piano breakdown and epic build back up, "Bleeding White" is worthy of Queen. © Qobuz

Woodstock: 50 Years Later

Woodstock wasn’t the first gathering of its kind dedicated to music. At the time, Newport was already a regular meetup for fans of the new rock & folk music that had come crashing upon the youth (American and otherwise) like a tidal wave. Festivals such as Monterey (California) or the Isle of Wight (U.K) had been all the talk of the previous summers. But Woodstock was by far and large the most memorable of them all, due to its unbridled, spontaneous nature, as well as its long list of famous performers. Case in point: 50 years later, eyes still light up when it’s mentioned.

New Order: From Darkness to Dance-floor

How does one Mancunian group move from perhaps the gloomiest band of the punk era to a master of the dance-floor? In the early eighties, straight out of Joy Division’s ashes, New Order marked one of the first successful unions of rock’n’roll and dance music. A perfect soundtrack for a morose, Thatcherite England.

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”.
