When We Are Inhuman is a dense but not complicated collaboration between Bonnie "Prince" Billy, the National's Bryce Dessner, and the contemporary classical outfit Eighth Blackbird. Split between old Will Oldham songs and murder ballads drawn from Dessner's ongoing excavation project, When We Are Inhuman has the bones of folk tunes but an urbane presentation. It's prickly and provocative, even when the melodies are gently lulling. This tension between the past and present lends the album some life, and even if the record drifts toward the cerebral, culminating in a 16-minute excursion through Julius Eastman's "Stay on It," the lasting impression is one of warmth, not cold. The musicians find a common ground within the eerie mysteries of old folk tunes and turn those strange sounds into something reassuring, if not quite comforting. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

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.

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”.

The Golden Age of American Indie Rock in 10 Albums

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.
