It’s already been ten years since the Fleet Foxes’ debut eponymous album and the birth of their pop-folk vocal harmonics. Ten years following in the footsteps of Brian Wilson, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young never once falling into the trap of a bland imitation. For the occasion, the quintet from Seattle look back on their younger years with a four-disc box set featuring around thirty tracks: Fleet Foxes – First Collection: 2006-2009. On the programme: The Fleet Foxes EP (2006), the eclectic Sun Giant EP (2008) and the album Fleet Foxes (2008), not forgetting the hit single White Winter Hymnal, a gospel serenade filled with a cappella. It’s a profusion of sweet acoustic chants, titles overflowing with pastoral poetry and mystical reverbs. 

Vocals resonating in echo as if in a church (Oliver James), folkloric tambourins (Mykonos), and catchy choruses: comforting warmth emanates from the record and the listening experience quickly becomes irresistible. Then, on the third disc, the guitars are plugged in to pick the album up a bit and unveil some delightful pop themes (In the Hot Hot Rays). The crew give the album a certain floaty weightlessness, even on Joan Baez’s legendary Silver Dagger. Overall, 100 minutes of astonishing folk music that provides a great insight into the Fleet Foxes’ staggering evolution and their undeniable songwriting talent. A box set that ends in a climax with previously unreleased demos, including English House (basement demo). A holy moment. © Clara Bismuth/Qobuz

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, even forty-five years after its release.

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”.

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.
