The works of Lord Byron, John Keats, Thomas Hood, Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Wordsworth and Alfred Tennyson are not just for tortured young men in frock coats, wandering alone across rainy hills. Far from it: a 74 year-old woman, battered by excess, illness, and a full life, has also appropriated this feverish 18th-century poetry. Marianne Faithfull, weighed down by the experience of surviving Covid, brings great intensity to her recitation of these verses, and makes them very much her own. She has called on the reliable Warren Ellis, a former Bad Seed, to cut a musical backcloth which offers both restraint and grandiloquence. Ghostly synths and heavy strings wrap around Dame Marianne's craggy vocals. These songs are wreathed in a dreamy twilight that stops just short of the macabre; the landscapes roll by, and the poetry of these past greats steps out into our troubled present. Nick Cave brings piano and percussion to most of the tracks, and Vincent Segal his cello. Even Brian Eno comes in to play clarinet on The Bridge of Sighs. The result is a gorgeous backdrop for a magnificent album, and one which confirms that Marianne Faithfull, a fixture of the rock scene since the early 60s, is still a great and unique artist. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus

What a difference 50 years can make! By early 1969 rock music had become a leading cultural force: The Who had just recorded Tommy; Cream packed Royal Albert Hall for their farewell concert; Janis Joplin became a solo act; Led Zeppelin performed for the first time. And after four months of recording, The Beatles (aka The White Album) was out and climbing the charts. To understate the obvious, rock music was awash in talent and standards were high.

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.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.
