Big Thief songwriter and frontwoman Adrianne Lenker's aesthetic falls somewhere between rough edged Appalachian Mountain music filtered through an urban Brooklyn sensibility, and something further out, more individualized, and in the end, not completely expressible. While stanzas like "When I say celestial/ I mean extraterrestrial/ I mean accepting the alien you've rejected in your own heart/ When I say heart I mean finish/The last one there is a potato knish/ Baking too long in the sun of spud infinity" might make you smile, her lyrics often seem like they're only scratching the surface of what she's thinking and feeling. Her voice, which can shade into a Hazel Dickens kind of portentousness, often strains to reach a place that only she can visualize. But the overall effect is a rigorous, engaged, and inviting musical experience. Recorded in four locations—Topanga Canyon, Upstate New York, Colorado, and Tucson, Arizona—there's nevertheless a cohesion thanks to Lenker's singing. "Red Moon," with guest Matt Davidson of Twain on fiddle and harmony vocals, is the band at their most Americana-esque. The album's sweetest melody is found on "No Reason" with Buck Meek on twelve-string guitar and guest Richard Hardy on flute. The only misstep is "Love Love Love," where Lenker's voice wobbles and nearly breaks in spots. At times the foursome (rounded out by bassist Max Oleartchik and drummer James Krivchenia) do get noisier, as in "Little Things," where Meek's electric guitar chimes and reverb gives Lenker's voice extra force; guitar effects and electronics add a textured bass thump to "Flower of Blood." You may wonder if this double album would have been tighter and less indulgent condensed into a single, but Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You justifies its length, staying steady until the goodtime honky-tonk closer, "Blue Lightning." © Robert Baird/Qobuz

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.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.

The Black Keys in 10 Songs

From 2001, The Black Keys have been reminding the world about the real roots of the Blues, cutting away all the frills and unnecessary solos. Their music has always been untamed, abrupt and minimalist. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney developed this unique style over the course of two decades, without once selling their souls to the devil at a Mississippi crossroads. Here are ten songs to prove it.
