When he brought out At Least For Now, Benjamin Clementine made an entrance that was mad as hell and at the same time very much reserved. The vocals were deep. Well-trained. Almost warlike. The young Brit proved that he had, above all else, one hell of a voice. It was a voice worthy of Nina Simone, to whom he was quickly compared. A strong personality behind a tightly-controlled piano, who impressed and took one's breath away. This first album was a solid, demanding effort, especially in terms of the musical styles whose boundaries it confounded with a sweep of the hand. Jazz, soul, folk, blues, classical or pop, Benjamin Clementine doesn't discriminate, preferring to play a stateless kind of music, alternating between the nudity of a simple piano and the fulsomeness of a violin section. No less mercurial, I Tell a Fly is if anything even harder to define. More theatrical than before, this is a record that takes the world by storm - an album solidly on top of its game. In short, a work of its time interwoven with timeless instruments. On Jupiter, Clementine surfs on a relaxed pop, whereas on One Awkward Fish, he lets loose, mixing the sound of a harpsichord with funky, minimalist drums. That's just one of the many wide strides that mark out this album. Demanding, and above all stunning. © MD/Qobuz

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, Lhasa de Sela left a unique mark in the history of modern popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are distinct and accomplished works, revealing a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dreams and reality. Her light/dark songs carry the genuine emotions of an artist whose sensitive singing offers a pact of intimate complicity with the listener. Lhasa de Sela’s life contains all the ingredients for a legend, all the steps of a novel, all the emotions of a beautiful and overwhelming story.

Warp, 30 Years of Groundbreaking Music

Warp, the record label which led to the blossoming of some of the most boundary-pushing artists of the electronic music scene, such as Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre, and Squarepusher, now has their catalogue available on Qobuz. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the history of Britain’s best-respected independent label.
