In 2016 Justin Vernon a.k.a. Bon Iver and Aaron Dessner from The National launched a collective named People. The project’s goal is to create an independent space where artists can work and collaborate in a spontaneous manner, without constraints. The album Big Red Machine directly comes from this initiative, even though it started a long time ago. Ten years ago, Dessner sent Vernon a small audio file tweaked with instrumental sounds, as a joke. But after due reflection, his partner became much more interested. From this creative drive came Big Red Machine in 2018. This work made in the April Base studio is a surprising blend of indie rock, psychedelic electro and digital soul. A dozen thematic songs striving for a sensory search and leaving room for the imagination. Big Red Machine is the embodiment of independent music experimenting throughout the creation process. A potpourri neither spectacular nor perfect, but undeniably interesting for its research phase. With mellow beats right from the start (Deep Green), a delicate and sensual auto-tune on Vernon’s voice (Gratitude) and poetic lyrics, this multi-layered album goes through a multitude of phases, and tickles all kinds of genres and sounds. A very promising first creation from the People label! © Anna Coluthe/Qobuz

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.

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.

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.
