Released just a year after the full-length Thank You for Today, 2019's The Blue EP finds Death Cab for Cutie benefitting from working with a smaller canvass. The central tune of this five-track EP is "Kids in 99," a song written in tribute to three children who died in an explosion on the Olympic Pipeline in 1999. It has clean lines but a nervy energy, and its hushed outrage provides an emotional keystone for the record, which also contains the coiled "Before the Bombs." Death Cab doesn't depart from the cool textures and subtle melodies that distinguish Thank You for Today, but that added grace note of despair, outrage, and quiet urgency does give The Blue EP a subtle and welcome emotional resonance. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Do any of you miss Led Zeppelin? Don’t worry, Rival Sons are here to do more than just fill the void. That said, it’d be too simplistic to reduce the Long Beach gang to clones of Robert Plant and Jimmy Page’s group. Especially as over the past ten years these hairy Californians (who are led by Jay Buchanan) have done more than just dip their blues and heavy rock in molten lava. Rival Sons are here to celebrate eternal rock with a contemporary sound. Produced by Dave Cobb, this sixth album doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel, but instead makes it spin at a thousand miles per hour. Above all, Feral Roots proves that Buchanan is a great singer and Rival Sons are the best ambassadors for their style. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

Abandoning all modern trappings, Brett Eldredge chooses to go the full Frank Sinatra on his 2016 seasonal affair Glow. Leaving behind the R&B rhythms that underpin his hit singles is a bit of a risky move for Eldredge, as it pushes the spotlight directly onto his vocals. Eldredge may not take many risks on Glow -- he's determined to adhere to string-saturated tradition, so he never plays with his phrasing -- but he's warm and charming, which gives him enough swagger to ride the snazzy big-band arrangements on Glow. Often, these tunes -- everything is familiar apart from the newly written title track, which is designed to pass without notice among the standards -- are so overheated they suggest a Vegas revue, but that's also the appeal of Glow. Eldredge plays with the schlockiest aspects of show biz, but his tongue is never in his cheek: he believes in this bluster, and that's the fun of Glow. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Death Cab For Cutie’s eighth album, Kintsugi, highlighted the band’s multiple fractures. Guitarist Chris Walla was leaving the project and Ben Gibbard’s marriage was collapsing. Two divisions that led to a negative and burdensome atmosphere for the group, and to an interesting but rather dark album as a result. Three years later, the sad times finally seem to be over. Thank You for Today offers more cheerful aspects and unites the long-time teammates: Ben Gibbard, Nick Harmer, Jason McGerr and two studio partners, Dave Depper and Zac Rae. Like for Kintsugi, the album is produced and mixed by the talented Rich Costey, known for his productions of Muse, Franz Ferdinand and Fiona Apple. A strong background that comes through on the very first listen.Death Cab For Cutie’s greyish phase truly seems over. Optimism is taking over for a quiet rebellion. With I Dreamt We Spoke Again, the band starts off with a game of distortions that covers Gibbard’s voice in a retro style. Then comes the track that best represents the band’s new mind-set. Gold Rush (somewhat reminiscent of Primal Scream’s Screamadelica) borrows its melodic line from Yoko Ono’s Mind Train. More pop, catchy and airy, Death Cab For Cutie are not breaking the elements like on Kintsugi. They rely on a thorough work of modelling and rebuilding from their own experiences and inspirations to reach this at once retro and contemporary rock atmosphere. © Anna Coluthe
