At the end of the 90s, Jason Lytle, Gradaddy’s leader, created his band’s second album with the Y2K glitch in mind (the predicted havoc that would ensue when the clocks turned 12 on 01/01/2000). Of course, the computers didn’t crash. And The Sophtware Slump became Grandaddy’s best hit, as well as a milestone in American indie pop. Like Ziggy Stardust from the post-grunge years. In 2020, The Sophtware Slump’s 20-year celebration takes the album full circle. Spending lockdown at home in Spring, Lytle re-recorded this album almost fully by himself, singing at the piano. It’s the fruit of coronavirus. On the original versions, the piano is surrounded by guitars, drums and a lot of retro-futuristic space sounds. The music sounds like it’s floating at the edge of a black hole. It comes back down to earth here, but Jason Lytle’s head is still in the sky. The stripped-back versions bring the likes of Daniel Johnston or Sparklehorse to mind. They’re fragile and melancholic, though they still hold a kind of innocence. There’s a numbed atmosphere. The feeling of being somewhere else. As a man who loves vintage analogue synthesizers, Lytle sure knows how to work the piano. For the ultimate psychedelic experience, you can listen to the original and the piano version at the same time. © Stéphane Deschamps/Qobuz

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.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.
