The sixth studio effort from the mercurial Nashville psych-rockers, Nothing as the Ideal sees All Them Witches reunite with Dying Surfer Meets His Maker producer Mikey Allred for a bold and bracing collection of songs that plays to all of their strengths. Paired down to a trio after the departure of keyboard player Jonathan Draper, the band have crystallized their signature amalgam of improvisation and songcraft into an exclamation point where every soaring lead, snare crack, and mechanical whirr feels essential. Recorded at Abbey Road in London, the eight-track set makes good use of the legendary studio's analog infrastructure, peppering the proceedings with fragmented loops and rewinding reels, all the while maintaining a radiant classic rock core. It's also the group's heaviest outing to date. Bruising opener "Saturnine & Iron Jaw" arrives via a wash of wheezy electronics before locking into a meaty Kyuss-meets-Masters of Reality groove. The propulsive "Enemy Is My Enemy" follows suit, peddling its Sabbathy wares with precision and sonic might, while the nearly ten-minute "See You Next Fall" emerges from its Twin Peaks fever dream of an intro into a burly existential blues odyssey fleshed out by some truly wonderful guitar work and a trippy drum solo finale. ATW have always maintained an impressive command of atmosphere, and the immersive Nothing as the Ideal is no exception, with the hymn-like instrumental "Everest" and the eerie mountain-folk fable "Children of Coyote Woman" (a callback to a pair of cuts from 2013's Lightning at the Door) conjuring mood with shamanistic prowess. "Rats in Ruin," which feels like an omnibus of everything that precedes it, closes the album in spectacular fashion, delivering a ruminative stadium-sized waltz that descends into a droning musique concrète-inspired midsection, before reassembling itself as a Category 5 hurricane intent on making landfall in the nosebleed section.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, “Lhasa” de Sela still made her unique mark on contemporary popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are all accomplished works in their own right and open the door to a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dream and reality. Full of both light and darkness, these songs are imbued with the genuine feelings of an artist whose heartfelt vocals reach out and pull the listener in, creating an intimate relationship with the audience. Looking back at the life of “Lhasa” de Sela, the makings of a legend are visible like chapters in a novel, complete with all the emotion that comes with a beautiful but heartbreaking storyline.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.
