With Luminous, no-one could have accused The Horrors of resting on their laurels. Each album from the Southend group takes the breath away by its self-reinvention - more than can be said for many bands. With this fourth work that came out in 2014, the Brits cooked up a record which managed to be homogeneous in spite of all the styles it lifts: from psychedelia, new wave, shoegaze, goth, krautrock and even electro. Three years later, V preserves this eclecticism, driving it onward into more poppy terrain. Because, twelve years after their birth, The Horrors are hungry! Now done with the underground's chiaroscuro, Faris Badwan and his bandmates want to taste stadium-level fame and see the top of the charts. But where the fifth album succeeds is in its ability to play the commercial card, all the while maintaining its identity. So The Horrors are not selling their soul to the devil, but rather in refining its choruses and melodies, rounding off certain angular guitars and putting the accent on their music's groovy potential, with the result of a record that at times evokes Bowie. People who do labels will talk about a mature album. Everyone else will just talk about a perfectly-mastered rock record. © MD/Qobuz

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

Thirty-four years ago, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.

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.

Kraftwerk, 50 Years Ahead of Their Time

Kraftwerk, the most influential electro group in history, founded by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, who died of cancer on May 6, 2020, have always been ahead of their time. Ahead of technology, composition and stage performance, the Germans proved to the public that robots were also capable of emotion and paved the way for techno, new wave and even hip-hop.
