Sharon Van Etten observed a binding interplay between the experience of loss and growth over the last 24 months as our world has shared innumerable tangible and metaphorical endings and beginnings.  We've Been Going About This All Wrong, is her 10-track meditative blueprint to make sense of the connective human experience, while immersed in societal trauma, and the resulting transformations. One of Van Etten's many songwriting talents is her distillation of emotional complexity into innately resonate lyrical passages. 2010's Epic demonstrated the simple, pliable prowess of her songcraft; We've Been Going About This All Wrong is an assured extension to this. "Darkness Fades" opens with soft fingerpicking, and Van Etten's smooth, warbling melodic voice crooning for life's metaphoric night to end: "I'm dreaming of a place/ I held close in a state/ Darkness fades." Frustration and gnarly, synth-backed instrumentation fuel "Anything" and "Headspace" with anxious, innocent curiosity leaning to overwhelmed, dissociative numbing. "Come Back" longs to reconnect with a distant partner. "Darkish," an album highlight, fuses lyrical sentiment and akin sonic textures. Backed by chunked suspended guitar chords and Van Etten's solo vocal, a message of resilience resonates abound. Throughout a decade-plus career, Sharon Van Etten has offered a body of work swaddled in empathy, companionship, and vulnerability. We've Been Going About This All Wrong is a new chapter that carries a bespoke urgency embracing a strewn, beautifully messy portrait of life. This record reminds us that solace is cultivated where the gradients of light and dark revel, and where our mending hearts have the space and time they need to heal. © William Card/Qobuz

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.

My Bloody Valentine, the Inner Experience

Thirty years after its release, My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless" remains the craziest album of the 90s. This electric monument in the form of a wall of sound was a product of Kevin Shields' deranged mind. It turned the history of rock upside down and remains a major source of inspiration for many musicians from all walks of life.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.
