The History of the Albums – n°303

This Californian rock band recognized in the 60's is typically the kind of band I like. Not as popularly recognized, often neglected to its true value today and distinguished by an atypical style/content. While it particularly smells of acid, generously swallowed by these individuals and imagined in an underground rock/proto-punk garage, the Seeds are known to have been one of the first pioneers of Psychedelic Rock at the same time as the Yarbirds or ... read more

Approaching a new Indie Rock aesthetic and releasing a more diverse and elaborate instrumentation, Little Oblivions sounds like a new, more pop turn for Julien Baker. In spite of the limits, she can always count on her particularly harrowing and hard-hitting writing.

The History of the Albums – n°301

[I also recommend that you read my previous reviews on Bob Dylan, Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited, to better understand the context and this one].After a tumultuous yet prodigious year 1965, Bob Dylan had already reached the glass ceiling, marked by the break with his old traditional folk fan and his rise to commercial success with his new Folk Rock/Blues Rock formula. So after the 2 classics Bringing It All Back Home and Highway ... read more
