Over the past decade, Colorado's The Lumineers have well proven that they are much more than the twee novelty of their hit "Ho Hey." Though they were originally lumped in with bands like Mumford and Sons, their brand of Americana folk is a more stark, incredibly intimate affair. Sometimes that can translate into an echo of Springsteen, like on the majestic title track—buzzing guitar, pomp drums, jangling tambourine—with its evocative lyrics: "I could see it in the air/ Every word was like smoke from a cigarette." At other times, there is a loose feel of Tom Petty circa Wallflowers, as on the sweet and low piano ballad "Big Shot." Produced by Simone Felice of the Felice Brothers, Brightside mostly opts for subtlety (barely plucked guitar, a wisp of piano on "A.M. Radio") that invites you to lean in and really listen. Vocalist Wesley Schultz has learned how to play his delightfully ragged voice over the years, too. To deliver the poignancy of the lyrics "Find a love, I was leveled at the sight of you/ You were wrong, what I needed was a little clue" on the great "Never Really Mine," he pushes it to a higher register—the song conveying swagger and a desperation all at once. On the daydreamy "Rollercoaster," floating lightly on piano and organ, Schultz punches unexpected words, making you think about what he really means: "I wish we could start it over, have another child." It's not so much traditional poetry as someone plainly sharing real human emotion. The Nilsson-esque "Birthday" is a bittersweet head-bob, and "Where We Are" is ready-made for a TV commercial: sentimental, folksy, warm-hearted, reassuring ("I don't know where we are/ But it will be OK," Schultz sings, with just a slight catch in his delivery). Closer "Reprise" is a treat: Starting off with a driving determination, the sub bass is lifted joyously by piano from Jeremiah Fraites. "I'm headed for the lights/ I'm headed for the bright side, baby, tonight," Schultz promises, the backing vocals rising and falling as if at sea. © Shelly Ridenour/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.

Female Jazz Singers: 10 New Names to Know

When it comes to jazz singers, Billie, Ella, Sarah, and Nina may be firm favourites, but this vocal style is sprinkled with an array of exceptional singers ready to make their mark on this legendary genre. Can we still call it jazz? Or is it just that jazz as we know it is changing? Either way, it doesn’t make these vocalists any less incredible. So, without further ado, here are ten women who are making an impact on the world of jazz.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
