This is a new mutation of King Gizzard! The ten tracks on Butterfly 3000 see Stu McKenzie and his team develop their cryptic language. Against a dazzling concept-album background whose tracks run into one another, forming a whole, this 18th album goes in for psychedelic modular experiments, like the sublime synth progression on Blue Morpho with its kaleidoscopic chorus or Yours, which introduces the over-powered rhythm section. Stu's Passion Pit-style lead vocals flood these ten compact tracks, each one just under the six-minute mark. The result is a new journey into his overflowing musical imagination. As ever, there are many influences at work here. The oriental strings on Interior People evoke an 80s synthpop which is perfect for live performances; the influence of Tame Impala and MGMT has never been more prominent (Catching Smoke, Ya Love);  later we find the simple keyboard sounds of Japanese videogames (Dreams)while the progressive stylings of Hawkwind offer a backdrop.

Butterfly 3000 is the first remnant of modular synthetic loops which the artist began in 2019, while writing the film-concert Chunky Shrapnel, whose release was thrown into disarray in early March 2020 by the pandemic. The piece was then reworked amid the gloom of lockdown. So while the distortions of Black Hot Soup immerse the work in drama, the climax of the album, 2.02 Killer Year and the voice of Ambrose Kenny-Smith brings closure to a record that is bursting with hope "Hope you can see the beauty within the grim world's ugly mess", a rare mood for KGLW. This is a successful, if facetious, tour de force for the audacious Australians, in which the electric gives way to the synthetic. © Charlotte Saintoin / Qobuz

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

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”.

Daniel Johnston, A Troubling, Troubled Icon

No one ever sounded like Daniel Johnston. The little known depressive artist found fame thanks to his peers’ recognition. He passed away on September 11th, 2019, at the age of 58; his discography has slowly become the symbol of naïve, lo-fi and hyper-emotional music. It’s never too late to (re)discover this bona fide underground genius, and his heartfelt, authentic music.
