Being in a job for 28 years changes a man. It often pushes you to return to simpler, calmer things. In Ben Harper’s case, it’s been ten years since he explored his folk and blues roots. It’d be difficult to make Winter Is For Lovers any more unpretentious. The singer no longer sings. He plays guitar. We only hear his lap-steel guitar and it takes us all around the world, as the tracks’ titles suggest.


A song, a place, an idea. Ben Harper creates an atmosphere that he develops, repeats and varies without ever losing its core essence. Each song does just that. There are those that play with silences, like The Joshua Tree or Lebanon and those that give way to arpeggios and bigger chords, like Inland Empire and London. They all have one thing in common: that simple, intimate sound that focuses your attention solely on the instrument and Ben Harper’s hands. You hear the sound of the bottleneck on the strings and all the perfect inaccuracies... Between Americana à la Ry Cooder and tributes to the genre’s pioneers such as Leo Kottke, Winter Is For Lovers brings us incredibly close to the artist while at the same time managing to propel us towards other spheres. © Brice Miclet/Qobuz

Shooting Big Star

It took a short legacy of only two years and three albums for Big Star to enter the rock 'n' roll pantheon. Unsuccessful in the beginning of the 70’s, Alex Chilton and Chris Bell’s band is now acclaimed as one of the most influential of its kind.

The Talking Heads Revolution

Forty years after its release, David Byrne and his band’s album “Remain in Light” has held on to all of its mad and funky allure. The album’s merging of intellectual post-punk with cosmopolitan dance music influenced groups such as LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend and Arcade Fire. On this fourth album produced by Brian Eno, the Talking Heads revolutionized their sound, but also that of rock itself.

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”.
