The first Crowded House album in 11 years can be seen as a homecoming of sorts. Standing alongside bassist Nick Seymour as always, Neil Finn welcomes his sons, Liam and Elroy Finn, as official members along with Mitchell Froom. The producer of the first three Crowded House albums is back to helm Dreamers Are Waiting in addition to playing keyboards in the group. This is a fairly dramatic shift from the Crowded House lineup who recorded Intriguer back in 2011, but the results wind up being richly textured and subtle, an album that finds its subdued groove quite early, then proceeds to find variations within it. The emphasis on quiet and space isn't far removed from Lightsleeper, the collaborative record Neil and Liam released in 2018, yet there's a heightened sense of songcraft here that makes the muted guitars, rounded riffs, and waves of keyboards embed tunes into the subconscious. Songwriting has long been a strength of Neil Finn, but the notable thing about Dreamers Are Waiting is how he's spread the songwriting wealth, collaborating with the full band on a couple of tracks, writing with both of his sons as well as his brother Tim, who once was in Crowded House, and also gives Liam a solo spotlight. The communal effort naturally emphasizes the group's communal voice, one that salutes and tweaks classic pop forms in equal measure. Echoes of loneliness float through Dreamers Are Waiting, but this isn't a melancholy album. The melodies are insistent, as are the dampened rhythms, giving this album a warm, palpable heartbeat that can be felt even if the record is all captured in soft focus. It's this gentle, reassuring touch that makes Dreamers Are Waiting a balm, an album that offers familiar comfort even if it doesn't precisely sound like any previous Crowded House record.

In your panoramas...
And then Nirvana Killed Rock

Thirty-four years ago, 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.

Shooting Big Star

It took a short legacy of only two years and three albums for Big Star to enter the rock 'n' roll pantheon. Unsuccessful in the beginning of the 70’s, Alex Chilton and Chris Bell’s band is now acclaimed as one of the most influential of its kind.

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.
