It's back to school for Idles. Six months after chomping down the chunky Brutalism, our five Bristol dropouts, standard-bearers for a no-frills punk revival, have spat out Joy As An Act Of Resistance. And once again, Joe Talbot's crew has done a good job. References to the classics (Love Song, Television), England's ills – immigration on Danny Nedelko which brings to mind the social satire Danny Darko, Islamophobia on Great and masculinity on  Samaritans, Idles howl their disgust at a disgusting modern world. It's a (self-)portrait inspired by love, and it is itself modern. And above all, it's joy. There is no breathing space on the tragic Slow Savage ("Cause I’m the worst lover you’ll ever have") but plenty of "I fucking Love You"s. Even more striking still is the brilliant cover of Cry To Me by Solomon Burke, who is well worth his weight in gold. It's in the same vein as Brutalism, with big bass, broken-backed drums, overpowered vocals, guitars sidelined... This second work confirms Idles' raw genius, as well as a certain English disease which is also carried in the jaded yet fresh punk of Eagulls, Fat White Family, Insecure Men, Shame, Sleaford Mods and others. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. However, each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

Thirty-four years ago, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.
