Enjoying a bit of a renaissance, Pennsylvanian chamber folk trio the Innocence Mission return with See You Tomorrow, their ethereal second outing for Britain's Bella Union label. There's a remarkable consistency to the work of Karen Peris and her husband Don, who, along with longtime bassist Mike Bitts, have more or less revisited the same very specific sonic world over and over since the late '90s. A balance of happy/sad intimacy and tranquil daydreaming marks their now-familiar bailiwick where lightly picked acoustic guitars, double bass, and distant strings, melodica, piano, and other unshowy ornamentations build a cozy gossamer glow around Karen's fragile vocals. From its general subject matter (compassion, family, spirituality, love) to its hushed delicacy, See You Tomorrow does little to deviate from this pattern, though it's hard to find too much fault in that. The group's signature sound is a home-built concept, gently refined over their three decades together, and their steady cultivation of it is their gift to the world. As far as Innocence Mission albums go, See You Tomorrow offers a bit more experimentation than some of their recent releases. Recorded at the Perises' home with Karen playing the bulk of the parts, there's a certain freedom to the song structures and overall feel, with tempos shifting lazily across a landscape populated with occasional instrumental bouquets that flash her craft as an arranger. A mostly even mix of piano- and guitar-led songs, highlights include "On Your Side" and "St. Francis and the Future," the latter of which shines with a particularly unique radiance and subtle complexity. Later on in the album is the excellent "Mary Margaret in Mid-Air" a rare cut that features Don Peris on lead vocals amid the pleasant rattle of old film projector sound effects. It's these little details and the quality of the writing that help push the boundaries of what otherwise sounds like a quintessential Innocence Mission album.

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”.

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.

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.
