Being a settled down, cherished and serene artist certainly doesn’t prevent certain works from bursting out into much more intense moments. With this in mind, Rest is not just another album for Charlotte Gainsbourg. Rest isn’t just for the dead, but the living too! And for siestas… And the rest as well… Four years after the death of her sister Kate, she lays down all her cards on the table from her 46 years in this world. At the heart of this record we find the weight of a heavily charismatic father (Lying With You) as well as the watch of others (I’m A Lie) and recent tragic deaths (Kate), giving birth to an album with a rare emotional force. Clearly, Charlotte Gainsbourg has the gift of manipulating all this internal nitroglycerine with care. And, at any moment, we’re tempted to call the pathos police… To accompany her on this work of cathartic cambers, she has invited along Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo from Daft Punk with whom she co-signed the single Rest but above all, for the rest of this fifth album, she is joined by Sébastien Akchoté a.k.a. SebastiAn, a virtuoso from the electro clan Ed Banger, who has tailored here a perfect array of instrumentals. A dress made from Gainsbourgian fabrics like never before, that Sebastian sews in his own way - modern, but not too modern… One track from a certain Paul McCartney (Songbird In A Cage) and two from Connan Mockasin (Dans vos airs and Les Crocodiles) come to complete this multifaceted work that is without a doubt the most personal by the author. © MZ/Qobuz

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”.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.

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. But over their six albums, would the grace that touched Interpol become obsolete?
