Released just a year after the full-length Thank You for Today, 2019's The Blue EP finds Death Cab for Cutie benefitting from working with a smaller canvass. The central tune of this five-track EP is "Kids in 99," a song written in tribute to three children who died in an explosion on the Olympic Pipeline in 1999. It has clean lines but a nervy energy, and its hushed outrage provides an emotional keystone for the record, which also contains the coiled "Before the Bombs." Death Cab doesn't depart from the cool textures and subtle melodies that distinguish Thank You for Today, but that added grace note of despair, outrage, and quiet urgency does give The Blue EP a subtle and welcome emotional resonance. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

The Golden Age of American Indie Rock in 10 Albums

After a decade dominated by synthetic music, guitars made a vigorous comeback in the 90s. They made their way into all corners of independent rock, independent from the system and the mainstream. An alternate style that was born out of the subversive and homemade spirit of punk found in Lou Reed's Velvet Underground as well as Iggy Pop's Stooges. Let’s take a look at 10 essential indie rock albums from the 90s.

Shooting Big Star

It took a short legacy of only two years and three albums for Big Star to enter the rock 'n' roll pantheon. Unsuccessful in the beginning of the 70’s, Alex Chilton and Chris Bell’s band is now acclaimed as one of the most influential of its kind.

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.
