In the late 90s Modest Mouse made angry-young-man music that was the spitting, alt-noise id of frontman Isaac Brock. By 2004's Good News for People Who Love Bad News the band found buoyancy — but refused to get too comfortable. Surprise hit "Float On" perfectly captures the new m.o., layering on haunted sound effects (cartoon boings, needling rhythm guitar) that are weirder and darker than the almost nursery-rhyme-like melodies suggest. Likewise, "Ocean Breathes Salty" pairs sun-dazed guitars with mournful organ. Throughout, Brock's lisping, serrated vocals veer wildly from a falsetto to a bark, often in the course of a single song. But even the off-kilter touches from the radio hits can’t prepare you for the campy and calamitous "Dance Hall," cowpoke cautionary tale "Bukowski" ("Who would want to be such a control freak?") or aggressively Tom Waits-y "The Devil's Workday." But when Modest Mouse borrows a bit of Pavement’s laconic vibe for “Blame It on the Tetons” and do a little sci-fi disco on “The View,” it’s pretty magical. © Qobuz

The Golden Age of American Indie Rock in 10 Albums

After a decade dominated by synthetic music, guitars made a vigorous comeback in the 90s. They made their way into all corners of independent rock, independent from the system and the mainstream. An alternate style that was born out of the subversive and homemade spirit of punk found in Lou Reed's Velvet Underground as well as Iggy Pop's Stooges. Let’s take a look at 10 essential indie rock albums from the 90s.

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.

Norah Jones in 10 Songs

Even though her albums are released on jazz label Blue Note, Norah Jones’s music has never simply been jazz, just as it has never solely been pop, nor folk, country or soul… Since the early noughties, the American singer and pianist has embraced many styles, often breaking norms in pursuit of her own unique sound, a sound she loves to share through collaborations with different musicians of diverse origin and style. Discover the world of Norah Jones in 10 songs.
