After a politically engaged third album released three years ago (Future Politics), Katie Stelmanis, the brain behind Austra, has gone for a different approach on HiRUDiN, locking herself up for three days in a studio in Toronto with musicians she had never met before, including part of the contemporary music improv group c_RL, the duo Kamancello (a cello and a kamanche) and an all-female kulintang ensemble (a Filipino percussion musical instrument). Having become a kind of LGBT+ indie icon, Katie Stelmanis opens up a little more on this album and deals with more intimate themes such as the consequences of toxic relationships and insecurities linked to her sexuality. The new wave influence is also more drawn-out in the orchestration which is imbued with classical touches (her passion when she was younger), carried mostly by the cello and piano. More pop than synth, like the first Supertramp-esque track Anyways, Austra releases a flock of powerful hits (Risk It, with its broken beat and cello skank, the catchy It's Amazing, Mountain Baby with its children's choir or the danceable I Am Not Waiting) which could well send her up a level. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 Years of Electronic Music

To celebrate his 50-year-long career, Jean-Michel Jarre has released the edifying compilation Planet Jarre, a collection of 41 tracks that highlight the path set by the pioneer of electronic music. It’s a wonderful opportunity to look back over the five decades during which the Frenchman expressed himself as an artist, a mad scientist, a visionary, a sucker for record breaking spectacles, an activist and now the torchbearer for artists struggling for fairer pay online.

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, even forty-five years after its release.
