On their dark album Nights Thoughts that appeared in 2016, Suede released twelve tracks carved from a Bowie-esque marble. It was grandiloquent and impeccable, although a little bit past it at times, as suggested by the opening track “When We Were Young”. Following their reformation in 2010, we find Blue Hour, a gloomier part three of the triptych – preceded by Bloodsports (2013) and Night Thoughts (2016). Brett Anderson, the singer of the group, remarked “I think Suede should be unpleasant, that’s the point of a band like Suede.” The group fully inhabits “Suedeworld”, a universe “set in a rural landscape, on the hard shoulder of the motorway, among the B-roads and among the rubbish that’s been fly-tipped. It’s set by a chain link fence with a dead badger lying rotting in the ground.” Anderson aims to push back the borders of Suede, a rare survivor of the still appetizing Brit Pop. This is how he renews himself and finds “new ways to be Suede”. From As One to Flytipping, the London band grab their strings, guitars and synths to celebrate a mass that is sometimes mournful (The Invisibles), sometimes dirty (Beyond The Outskirt). It’s both poignant and caricatured. Though perhaps troubling at first glance, Blue Hour is an endeavor to be explored further. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

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”.

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.

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.
