Following their 2017 electronic comeback, Weather Diaries, Ride have been hard at work. Barely two years after the 90s shoegaze titans reformed, Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Loz Colbert and Steve Queralt are out with This Is Not A Safe Place. The band’s new lease on life was anything but a fluke: their 6th studio album finds a calculated balance between dream pop, krautrock and electronic samples. Risk-taking, as implied by the title, is frequent, starting with the introduction, R.I.D.E. The nightmarish welcome blends in maniacal whispers that are simultaneously an invitation (Ride!) and a statement (Ride!). Then, the mood shifts considerably: Future Love promises budding romance over bittersweet shoegaze and jangle-pop guitar leads. The contrast between heartfelt rêveries and 80s style industrial bangers carries on through the rest of the album: Repetition anchors the latter style through a Juno-6 bass line which lends it a near-Kraftwerk vibe. Andy Bell had a few words about the song himself, saying “It was one of the very first songs written for the album, and has always felt to me like one of the best songs I've written.”. Well Andy, you could’ve said that about most of the songs on this record, and we’d be hard pressed to disagree. © Alexis Renaudat/Qobuz

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”.

The Black Keys in 10 Songs

From 2001, The Black Keys have been reminding the world about the real roots of the Blues, cutting away all the frills and unnecessary solos. Their music has always been untamed, abrupt and minimalist. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney developed this unique style over the course of two decades, without once selling their souls to the devil at a Mississippi crossroads. Here are ten songs to prove it.

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.
