When instrumental virtuosos who've spent much of their career as a hired gun sideman or a serial collaborator head towards a solo career—often making the extra leap into being a singer—the perils are many. The key is to play to your strengths and not try to do too much. Accordingly, as his official bio states, Steve Gunn, who's split his time between musical endeavors like the trio project GHQ and collaborations with Meg Baird and Kurt Vile, has "steadily processed his inspirations into a singular virtuosic stream." Translation: a solo career of increasingly likable singer/songwriter records. Breaking through to a larger audience with his 2014 album Way Out Weather, Gunn, with his supremely textural guitar playing, is a soft, feathery folkie for the new century. When forced to do more than just brilliant guitar playing, Gunn's songwriting is surprisingly conventional as in "Protection" where polyglot drummer Ryan Sawyer (who has played with Thurston Moore and Massive Attack among others) sets a steady beat for Gunn to minimally improvise around; "The Painter" has a cool-to-the-touch lounge jazz vibe. Produced by Rob Schnapf and Justin Tripp and engineered by Matt Schuessler, the sound of Gunn and the low-key accompanying quintet is appropriately detailed and layered. Some of Other You, which was named for Gunn improvising harmonies with a recording of his voice, is downright cheerful as in the lullaby soft "Morning River," where he sings an enigmatic love song: "Celebrate your magic/ Hermit of a sphere/ Floating through the stations with you/ Hear it loud and clear." The instrumental "Sugar Kiss" is a shimmering curtain of stringed textures including the sounds of a harp, electric guitar, upright bass and Gunn's 12-string acoustic guitar. While Gunn is never going to be a great singer, he has improved immensely, and has learned the essential skill of blending his songs with his vocal range, in the process becoming the best interpreter of his own material. In "Circuit Rider," his voice floats above descending chords of the verses with a knowing ease. As for his guitar prowess, Gunn prefers to make his lyrics heard over any string pyrotechnics, confining his guitarisms to short solos like that of his short, scuzzy statement in "Fulton." A quiet, confident folk whisper from a modern guitar icon. © Robert Baird/Qobuz

Arctic Monkeys, the English Holdup

It didn’t take long for the Sheffield quartet’s incredible riffs to escape the confines of their northern homeland and hit the charts. Following in the wake of the White Stripes, the Libertines and the Strokes, the band breathed new life into rock music and soon won over the entire world. Album after album, they’ve consistently proven themselves to be true all-rounders, comfortable with everything from soulful ballads to light, airy pop.

Interpol, Fade to Black

At the dawn of the new millennium, when garage was king, the New York quartet that then became a trio exploded onto the scene by reviving the dark romanticism of 80’s post-punk.

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.
