Following up Holy Fire can’t have been easy ... And to do so, Foals fling themselves headlong into a rock ‘n’ roll tsunami. With What Went Down, the Oxford gang retain their unique rock essence whilst also aiming for a wider audience. This, their fourth studio album, is undoubtedly another radical change for the band. In reaching a larger public, one might think that Yannis Philippakis and his band would have to sell their souls to the devil… The truth is quite to the contrary. What Went Down possesses a sound that hits home at the end of the first listen; the album’s guitars are rhythmic, colossal as mountains. The title track, in particular, is a force that sweeps away everything in its path, helpfully aided by the vocal charisma of Philippakis. Dark and oppressive, the album never loses sight of the importance of song structure. Raw power is an asset, a weapon for Foals, and never simply an end in itself. So much the better. This is a strong contender for the title of best indie rock album of 2015…

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit, even forty-five years after its release.

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”.

Daniel Johnston, A Troubling, Troubled Icon

No one ever sounded like Daniel Johnston. The little known depressive artist found fame thanks to his peers’ recognition. He passed away on September 11th, 2019, at the age of 58; his discography has slowly become the symbol of naïve, lo-fi and hyper-emotional music. It’s never too late to (re)discover this bona fide underground genius, and his heartfelt, authentic music.
