Joan Shelley waited until she had recorded her fifth album before self-titling it with her own name. A way for the Kentucky folk artist to show that this record is the one that says the most about her? To be sure, it is her most personal and intimate work. With a great austerity that highlights the beauty of her voice and the tenor of her words, this 2017 offering marks a first collaboration with an artist from outside her habitual circle. And not just any artist: Jeff Tweedy. Wilco's wisdom has seen this album produced with care and sobriety, succeeding in bringing out each note, each word, each arrangement as if it has been delivered direct to the audience's eardrums. Even the levels on the acoustic guitars are handled with care. This superb folk record is above all marked by space and silence. We could name Shelley the spiritual daughter of Sandy Denny, Vashti Bunyan or Linda Thompson; but the quality of her self-titled record makes her an artist in her own right, and it would be right to leave behind the kind of confidentiality in which she has been unjustly confined.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

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.

The Prince of the 80s

Within the family tree of funk, Prince Rogers Nelson, who passed away in April 2016, was a branch all of his own. In the course of a career spanning almost forty years, he managed to blend together the heritage of the founding fathers (James Brown, Sly Stone and George Clinton) with other influences, from rock'n'roll to electronica to jazz. He produced an exuberant, attention-grabbing groove, and his star shone brightest between 1978 and 1988…
