Not long after the release of 2011's underrated Computers and Blues, Mike Skinner capped off a remarkable decade of work by retiring his influential British rap project the Streets and succumbing to the softer dramas of life as a family man. He kept his finger on the pulse mentoring younger acts, running a label, and playing the occasional DJ set, but aside from a couple of collaborations with Rob Harvey as part of the D.O.T., it seemed like his last rant on laddism and the absurd mundanities and trials of U.K. life had been made. Then, seemingly out of the blue, a pair of Streets tracks dropped online at the end of 2017, marked of course by the familiar Clipper lighter that became the band's visual icon. As the floodgates opened and more new material followed, it was clear Skinner was building up to a legitimate comeback. Released in July 2020, None of Us Are Getting Out of This Life Alive is the Streets' first long-form release in nine years. Billed as a mixtape rather than an LP, the highly collaborative 12-song set plays less conceptually than most of the first-wave Streets outings with Skinner swapping partners on every single track. He re-enters Britain's musical landscape not as the club-culture lad-informant of his twenties but as an early-middle-aged rapper with a different set of concerns whose still-innovative productions are bolstered by current stars from the generation that he himself influenced. Although the debauchery of youth may be diminished by fatherhood, Skinner is still neurotically wrapped up in the intricate details of his social existence, phone ever in hand; two songs -- the Tame Impala-assisted "Call My Phone Thinking I'm Doing Nothing Better" and "Phone Is Always In My Hand" featuring Dapz on the Map -- are devoted entirely to smartphone culture and both are excellent. Other highlights include the sprightly "I Wish You Loved You as Much as You Loved Him," a mix of classic Streets melodicism and homemade grit with strong guest spots from Donae'o and Greentea Peng, and the Hak Baker collaboration "Falling Down." His showcasing of youthful talent is well-chosen and adds a freshness to the production that blends a raw D.I.Y. aesthetic and left-field beats with the oddly sweet cascading piano lines and charmingly singsong hooks that Skinner made his career on. While not quite on par with his best work, it is nonetheless a welcome and surprisingly fun return by one of Britain's great voices who has lost none of his wit and panache.

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.

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, “Lhasa” de Sela still made her unique mark on contemporary popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are all accomplished works in their own right and open the door to a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dream and reality. Full of both light and darkness, these songs are imbued with the genuine feelings of an artist whose heartfelt vocals reach out and pull the listener in, creating an intimate relationship with the audience. Looking back at the life of “Lhasa” de Sela, the makings of a legend are visible like chapters in a novel, complete with all the emotion that comes with a beautiful but heartbreaking storyline.

Warp, 30 Years of Groundbreaking Music

Warp, the record label which led to the blossoming of some of the most boundary-pushing artists of the electronic music scene, such as Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre, and Squarepusher, now has their catalogue available on Qobuz. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the history of Britain’s best-respected independent label.
