For her third album, the eclectic Australian Sarah Blasko took her sound even further than before. Previous records centered somewhat more around the guitar, while As Day Follows Night starts off on a more piano-driven path. The result is a surprising one. Blasko's voice is at once fragile and careful, holding a lot of breathy similarities to contemporary female singer/songwriters (including Feist and Sara Bareilles), while the music incorporates many contemporary touches from the meeting points between electronica and folk. Though there are pieces of tinkling, lilting modernity throughout, there are also massive throwbacks to sounds that, in today's world, are seemingly lost and gone. "All I Want," the first single released from the album, has a slight Western thump mixed with a vocal delivery that's equal parts Shirley Bassey and Portishead's Beth Gibbons. "Bird on a Wire" takes a turn toward jazzier territory. Meanwhile, "Lost & Defeated" uses a hollow-sounding piano with an orchestral backup for a sound that seems to emanate from a historic beer hall as much as it does from a modern studio. Throughout her temporal and stylistic ramblings, Blasko (in combination with veteran Swedish producer Björn Yttling) keeps a steady hand on the rudder, which results in a full album rather than a series of singles. It's a very nice listen, with enough intricacy and musical surprise to enchant a listener into more runs through the material.

Female Jazz Singers: 10 New Names to Know

When it comes to jazz singers, Billie, Ella, Sarah, and Nina may be firm favourites, but this vocal style is sprinkled with an array of exceptional singers ready to make their mark on this legendary genre. Can we still call it jazz? Or is it just that jazz as we know it is changing? Either way, it doesn’t make these vocalists any less incredible. So, without further ado, here are ten women who are making an impact on the world of jazz.

Nebraska: When Bruce Springsteen Laid Himself Bare

In 1982, at the height of his glory, the Boss surprised the world with “Nebraska,” a stripped back and entirely acoustic album. A timeless masterpiece bathed in echoes and reflections. An album that describes an America from the margins, and that many consider his best.

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”.
