"I've always said that all of our records are political but..that 'politics is personal,'" Drive-By Truckers' Patterson Hood has stated of the band's 12th release. "With that in mind, this album is especially personal.” Every blight on the current American landscape is name-checked, from immigrant mistreatment ("Babies in Cages") to incels ("Grievance Merchants") to the hopelessness of mass shootings ("Thoughts and Prayers"). "21st Century USA" is a list of modern-day devastations: pay-day loans, wage inequality, credit-card debt, evangelical hypocrisy, pain pills. "With Big Brother watching me always, why must I always feel so alone," the lyrics intone over an amiable country-rock beat. The bleak portraits are often set against Americana sounds that recall Uncle Tupelo's heartland fervor ("Slow Ride Argument"), Springsteen's red-blooded rock 'n' roll ("Armageddon's Back in Town") and "Murmur"-era REM's earnest twang ("Thoughts and Prayers"). Appropriately, on "Heroin Again," a fed-up lament of the current opioid epidemic that echoes the drug damage of the '90s, the bass stomps and guitar chugs like a lost grunge anthem. The Unraveling isn't the feel-good album of the year, but it sure does sound good. © Shelly Ridenour / Qobuz

Americana, America Through its Roots

The title may sound like a nebulous marketing ploy, and yet for about twenty years, Americana had been summarizing this blend of rock, country, blues and rhythm ‘n’ blues. And like in every big family, you’ll find almost every type of person: the rebellious daughter, the cultivated uncle, the agitated father, the driven cousin, etc.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

In France this summer for the Rencontres musicales d'Évian, where he conducted the Symphonic Orchestra of La Grange au Lac, Finnish acclaimed conductor and prolific composer of over 60 albums, Esa-Pekka Salonen discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in studio.

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”.
