​On the back of a few laidback, anecdotal albums, Kurt Vile has well-established his disillusioned, distinctly American voice, as Leonard Cohen and Jay Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. did in times gone by. With b’lieve i’m goin down…, his sixth record, Vile’s songbook continues to draw on the riches of classic folk and album rock. Like his Philadelphia comrades The War on Drugs, KV wears his influences on his sleeve, passing through Crazy Horse, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and acoustic Beck; but, like any great artist, he is much more than just the sum of this, forging a style that is entirely his own. No one spits their cracked poetry of the everyday quite like Vile. His songs, which on this new record can feel more discontent, more to do with wanting than the contented Wakin on a Pretty Daze, inhabit their own universes. Throughout b’lieve i’m goin down, Qobuz had no idea whether we were in 2015, 2005, 1995, 1985, etc. There is a little banjo here, a little piano there, many driving guitars – nothing that revolutionary, on the surface of it – yet after repeated listens, the album wormed its gentle way into the depths of our skulls. A powerful potion, and a fantastic addition to the talented Vile’s ever-growing catalogue. © CM/Qobuz

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

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.

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.
