The former leader of Supergrass, Gareth Michael Coombes a.k.a. Gaz Coombes, went back into hibernation in his Oxford studio to record his third solo album, in co-production with Ian Davenport, with whom he had already collaborated on Matador. Following his half-melancholic half-psychedelic pop exaltations cradled between Goat and Radiohead, World’s Strongest Man features eleven tracks of lavish yet nebulous orchestration (Wounded Egos, Weird Dreams), even strange at times (The Oaks). On Oxygen Mask, Gaz Coombes reminds us he can also produce a classy, minimalist ballad. Relying on an emasculated lyricism close to Cascadeur’s or Woodkid’s, where galloping rhythms jolt into other loops, Gaz Coombes continues his formidable solo breakthrough. And deals with his anxieties and chronic depression. While at first hard to apprehend, the opus reveals his richness over multiple listens. Complex and radiant. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

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”.

A Guide to Five Lesser-Known Metal Subgenres

The great oak tree of heavy metal contains more than meets the eye. Its mighty branches, visible to the average rock fan, consist of thrash, hair, nu, black, 'core, and death metal—all arguably the genre's more iconic iterations. But beneath its tremendous trunk are ever-growing roots that stretch endlessly into a vast underground of niche stylistic offshoots. There are literally dozens of subgenres—and many subgenres within those subgenres—throughout the heavy metal lexicon, and it would take a lifetime to become fully versed in all of them. Here we zoom in on five unique and compelling lesser-known metal subgenres that aren't obvious entry points for the average headbanger, but every fan of aggressive music should be familiar with these sounds.
