Mysterious, feminine, experimental, and always compelling, Jenny Hval has been pushing the musical envelope forward since 2006 (initially as Rockettothesky before releasing music under her own name). True to its title, The Practice of Love emphasizes warmth, lushness, and softness, quite unlike 2016’s Blood Bitch which connected menstrual blood to vampire imagery or 2015's Apocalypse, girl and its sardonic opening question, "What is soft dick rock?" (yes, really). That said, The Practice of Love retains Hval's signature use of occult imagery, spoken word poetry, and experimental electronic sonics, while introducing 80s-come-2019 synth grooves (some you could even dance to!), free-jazz inspired saxophone licks, and atmospheric vocal backdrops. The cohesive sonics are in part thanks to Hval’s cast of collaborators, with musicians Anja Lauvdal (synths), Espen Reinertsen (saxophone) and Lasse Marhaug (electronics) and guest speakers Vivan Want, Laura Jean Englert, Félicia Atkinson forming a group that sharpens and draws out the best in her sound. © Eric Benoit / Qobuz

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.

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”.

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.
