Between Dave Schramm's stints in both Human Switchboard and Yo La Tengo, Ron Metz's years with Human Switchboard, and Al Greller's work with Peter Stampfel, the Schramms had plenty of miles under their collective belt when they recorded their first album, Walk to Delphi, and if the results suggest the band was still fine tuning their musical personality, there's no arguing they play with tremendous skill and authority on these sessions, and Dave Schramm leaves no doubt that he's an unusually gifted guitarist and songwriter. The striking balance of pop, rock, and folk that the band found on Little Apocalypse was still a few years down the road, and in many respects Walk to Delphi is lighter and hookier than much of what would follow from this band, though it manages to fall a bit short of "radio friendly" -- as tuneful as Schramm's tunes are here, and as winning the performances may be, there's a dark undercurrent to songs like "Out of the Earth," "He Has Got a Gun," and "The Way Some People Die," which belies their seemingly upbeat surfaces. But for a band taking their first turn at bat, the Schramms sound remarkable confident on Walk to Delphi, and with good reason, given the quality of the material and the easy skill Schramm and his bandmates bring to these recordings. Like much of the Schramms' body of work, Walk to Delphi slipped through the cracks on its first release in the United States (the band would fare better in time in Europe), but it's certainly a record that demands rediscovery, and fully rewards the search. ~ Mark Deming

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.

David Byrne, a burgeoning mind

He was the leader of the Talking Heads, he recorded punk funk and South-American music, republished gems of world music, spent countless hours cycling through large cities throughout the world, and dabbled in dozens of other activities. What is truly going on in David Byrne’s head?

Erased Tapes, a Not-so-classic Label

Since its birth in 2007, Erased Tapes has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative labels of the last 15 years and enjoyed great commercial success. Although some fail to see past its neoclassical shopfront (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), the London-based label explores the outer limits of ambient, electronica and experimental with a catalogue that's smoothly curated by the German Robert Raths. Qobuz takes a closer look.
