Zelfverzekerde en volgroeide debuutplaten als die van The xx zijn zeldzaam. Maar er is dan ook niets doorsnee aan deze band. De inspiratiebronnen zijn heel divers – sporen van postpunk, droompop, dubstep, indiepop en R&B kunnen elk moment de kop opsteken – maar zijn samengebundeld in nummers die zowel simpel als uniek en mysterieus zijn. De beat klinkt meer als een hartslag dan een klap, de gitaren worden behendig beplukt en betokkeld en de zang komt zelden boven een droefgeestige zucht uit. "Crystalised" is waarschijnlijk een van de heftigste nummers, maar voelt nog steeds aan als een openhartig gesprek tussen twee geliefden. xx is een opmerkelijk debuut dat vele luisterbeurten verdient en de luisteraar laat smachten naar meer.

Kamasi Washington, the Sax of Angels

After his major success with a triple album, he went on to repeat this with a double one! Kamasi Washington charms and intrigues well beyond the jazz sphere. Working with Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg, and most importantly as the head of the West Coast Get Down collective, the charismatic saxophonist from Los Angeles brings an incredible wave of excitement to the contemporary jazz scene.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, 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.

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.
