With each album, Tove Lo finds increasingly stylish ways of presenting her unvarnished confessions. The contrast remains potent on BLUE LIPS, the companion piece to 2016's gritty Lady Wood, but where that album's haze reflected altered states of consciousness, this time Lo depicts the connection between lonely strangers -- and its aftermath -- with a clearer, crisper sound. She continues to riff on the persona she defined with "Habits (Stay High)," particularly on BLUE LIPS' first suite of songs, "LIGHT BEAMS." On "disco tits," she's on the prowl, setting her frank sexuality to shimmying beats and strobing synths that tap into '70s and '80s drama, territory she dives deeper into with "stranger" and the unapologetically queer "bitches." However, she remains a master of balancing boldness with vulnerability on songs such as "shivering gold" (which boasts the quintessentially Lo lyric "I'm out on the dancefloor/Drinking my tears"), "shedontknowbutsheknows," and "dont ask dont tell," all of which deliver a heady mix of mystery and potential danger. Similarly, Lo tempers BLUE LIPS' heartbreak beats on its second suite, "PITCH BLACK," where she looks back on her dysfunctional affair with fondness and surprising self-awareness; on an album full of dead-end love stories, "cycles" is one of the few songs that sounds truly romantic. Likewise, the hopeful melodies on "bad days" and "9th of october" hark back to the confessional pop that made Queen of the Clouds so well-rounded and appealing. On BLUE LIPS, Lo refines her unmistakable sounds and moods more satisfyingly than she did on Lady Wood, and transforms betrayal and denial into some of her finest songs.

Iggy and the Stooges: The Dawn of Punk

In 1969, a group of self-proclaimed numbskulls unleashed their distorted rock ‘n’ roll and nihilistic lyrics to the public. Fronting the Stooges was Iggy Pop, a guy whose dance moves almost seemed to resemble Nijinsky’s—only far more wild and far more rebellious. No wonder he was destined to become the godfather of punk rock.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their electric, guitar-soaked music has become its own category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard, as Western rockers continue to be drawn towards this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

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.
