As he continues to release albums, Mark Lanegan increasingly becomes a lone wolf, always wandering off to experiment with new things or aggressively change gear. After Blues Funeral in 2012, the old singer for Screaming Trees has reentered the solo game no longer content with his years among Queens Of The Stone Age or his (sublime) duos with Isobel Campbell. Straights Songs of Sorrow shows us again how kaleidoscopic his art can be. Here we are met with contemporary grunge, electro rock, austere blues, unusual folk and shamanic ballads. Led as always by his charismatic, baritone voice, his 2020 offering is, for the first time, entirely autobiographical. Fifteen songs inspired by his personal history as told in his memoir, Sing Backwards And Weep, released alongside the album.


His youth in the state of Washington during the grunge tsunami, his drug addiction, death, but also hope and humour, all is there in this feast of intimate delights. “Writing the book, I didn’t get catharsis,” explains Lanegan “All I got was a Pandora’s box full of pain and misery. I went way in and remembered shit I’d put away 20 years ago. But I started writing these songs the minute I was done, and I realised there was a depth of emotion because they were all linked to memories from this book. It was a relief to suddenly go back to music. Then I realised that was the gift of the book: these songs.” Finally, Straight Songs of Sorrow merges the writing strengths of Mark Lanegan’s first solo albums like the brilliant Whiskey For The Holy Ghost (1994) with the upfront complexity of his more recent works. An intense fusion that is successful with the help of guests among the likes of his old partner Greg Dulli from Afghan Whigs, the Bad Seeds’ Warren Ellis, Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, Portishead’s Adrian Utley and even Ed Harcourt. A fantastic rock’n’roll offering worthy of being experienced. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.

New Order: From Darkness to Dance-floor

How does one Mancunian group move from perhaps the gloomiest band of the punk era to a master of the dance-floor? In the early eighties, straight out of Joy Division’s ashes, New Order marked one of the first successful unions of rock’n’roll and dance music. A perfect soundtrack for a morose, Thatcherite England.
