In the summer of 2021, who of us is not exhausted by the world we’ve conjured into being? Who still believes a linear story can explain society’s trash-fire circumstances—whether the present rot, its misrepresentative history, or our own individualized grief? On her second L’Rain album, the singer-songwriter-conceptualist Taja Cheek addresses the weariness, while contemplating the process of forming unifying narratives about it. The resulting work is fractured psychedelic art-pop steeped in Black music traditions, but also a collage guided by notions that are, at once, sprawling and highly personal. Fatigue is a collection of songs, vignettes and transitions about what it means to be stuck inside the new roaring ’20s (with the humanist blues again), minus the pompous art aspirations of speaking for anyone but the thirtysomething Brooklynite. Which is funny, considering how many different voices Cheek uses to do so. Amidst a gorgeously mixed procession of symphonic bedroom-pop sonics, a litany of sampled friends, bystanders and back-up singers (including Jon Bap and Anna Wise) preach and pontificate, get caught in off-hand moments of exuberation, or in a crowd. From the sheer number of vocal tonalities, Fatigue feels like it is a work of group-subconsciousness, with Cheek’s voice and guitar its undeniable narrator. One of its most complete representations comes on the wonderfully mid-tempo "Find It" where the guitars and a chorus of voices unfurl a stately melody with a chorus ("Make a way out of no way") that attempts inspiration, but in context, actually questions such pop-psychology impulse. And yet when the latter half of "Find It" transitions to the pews of a church, there’s a singing reverend in the midst of eulogy, succeeding at inspiration ("All of my good days/ Outweigh my bad days") while an organ, a drum set and a chorus of voices build and explode all around him. In that moment, the fatigue at the album’s heart is fought with, and held at bay. Yet the feeling remains—that while we may not be alone in battling its effects, the struggle is infinite. © Piotr Orlov/Qobuz

A Guide to Five Lesser-Known Metal Subgenres

The great oak tree of heavy metal contains more than meets the eye. Its mighty branches, visible to the average rock fan, consist of thrash, hair, nu, black, 'core, and death metal—all arguably the genre's more iconic iterations. But beneath its tremendous trunk are ever-growing roots that stretch endlessly into a vast underground of niche stylistic offshoots. There are literally dozens of subgenres—and many subgenres within those subgenres—throughout the heavy metal lexicon, and it would take a lifetime to become fully versed in all of them. Here we zoom in on five unique and compelling lesser-known metal subgenres that aren't obvious entry points for the average headbanger, but every fan of aggressive music should be familiar with these sounds.

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.
