It wasn’t so long ago that Andrew Bird was recording his music onsite for his Echolocations series, but it seems since then he has had a change of heart. With the series still unfinished, he has released the bold new album My Finest Work Yet whose cover was inspired by the famous 1793 painting La Mort de Marat by Jacques-Louis David. This time, the album was recorded live in studio and produced by Paul Butler, the champion of retro sounds who now brings us folk-rock road-trip tunes like Sispyphus with its 60’s vibe. The album’s lyrics are overtly political and make an appeal against Trump’s America as Bird started writing it after the elections had taken place. Upon listening to the music, it soon becomes clear that the title of the album is more of a humble truth than an attempt to brag as Bird is truly at the top of his game. Plush, sophisticated melodies are enhanced by vocals, whistling, strings and piano which all come together to produce a delightful sound. Although it may be America’s favourite instrument, in all but the folk ballad Bellevue Bridge Club the album favours a greater instrumental variety than just the violin. Well-produced and rich yet still light, we would have to agree with Bird – this is his finest work yet. © Charlotte Saintoin/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.

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.

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”.
