Leave insular bedroom pop to the kids. Kings of Leon (millennials approaching middle age) are back with their first album in five years, and it's as big and grand as ever. In fact, When You See Yourself feels like an '80s throwback: huge. Credit that in large part to the phenomenal rhythm section of bassist Jared Followill and drummer Nathan Followill; the punchy bass, in particular, on this record is as much the star of the show as Caleb Followill's unmistakable voice. It imbues irresistible opener "When You See Yourself, Are You Far Away" with a bouncy island quality, while bursts of charging drums punctuate the verses. It throbs so deeply on "100,000 People" that, combined with slinky guitar, you might think you're listening to a Peter Gabriel track circa '86. Meanwhile, "The Bandit"—driven by galloping drums that match the open-sky lyrics ("Chiseled their names in stone/Heavy the load you tow/ And the red horse is always close/ And the fire don't burn below")—glows bright with guitar that can only be compared to Joshua Tree-era Edge. When KOL came out of Nashville in 2003—three sons of a Pentecostal preacher plus their cousin from Mississippi—who ever would have predicted they would be the heirs to the anthemic arena rock of Springsteen and U2? (Especially since they looked like Molly Hatchet throwbacks, all shags and mutton chops and flared jeans.) The only problem with being so big that you're a festival favorite is getting written off as having lost your edge: phoning it in, married to models and living in mansions. Those last two points may be apt, but KOL are far from phoning it in. If anything, they're still growing—actually getting better as a band, coming up with thoughtful new ways to manipulate their instruments—and still full of surprises. "Stormy Weather" rumbles like a funk track cut with swooning guitar. "A Wave" comes on as a ballad, all moody piano and sustained organ, before erupting into a Springsteen-like bop, Caleb's voice bright like a searchlight. And while Caleb has always had a way with words, he's trying his hand at poetry this time around. "There's a glow at the face of the canyon/ And a sound blowing 'round/ Says you're nowhere you've ever been before," he sings on "Claire & Eddie"; it's not especially deep, but it is an evocative match to the loose-limbed desert drums and ghostly guitar. "My heart's hard of hearing/ My head's full of sand/ Feet point both directions if you need a hand," he sings on "Echoing," which, with its majestic marching drums and livewire guitar, feels most like the band's earliest spitfire singles (think: "The Bucket," "Molly's Chambers"). The record fades out with "Fairytale," a dreamy, strings-laden song practically floating in space. "Heard your little cause playing on the radio/ It's getting good, real good at getting old," Caleb sings. That's nothing he needs to worry about right now. © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz

CARNAGE

Nick Cave

CARNAGE Nick Cave
In your panoramas...
The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

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.

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”.
