After their sophomore LP, 2013's Twosomeness, Pascal Pinon -- twin sisters Ásthildur and Jófrídur Ákadöttir -- spent significant time apart for the first time. Still teenagers, Ásthildur left to study music in Amsterdam while Jófrídur worked and toured with her other band, Saramis. The siblings reunited for Sundur, which translates to "apart," a reference to the Icelandic phrase "sundur og saman," "apart and together." The potential psychic toll of such a separation for twins can be heard on Sundur, which diverges from the fleshier arrangements and whimsical palette of their previous album. Here, the tone is more forsaken, with a sparser sound and more experimental detailing. The piano piece "Jósa & Lotta" opens the record with the words "Two hearts at separate pace" sung in breathy harmony. The song leads into "53," a gentle acoustic guitar ballad that's accompanied by piano and glitchy electronics. The latter culminates in distorted wind effects. Switching the source of glitch, "Babies" relies on organ, with clattering metal and other percussive objects. Also mixing organic sounds and warped noise that together seem like part of a natural world, if not our own, are two instrumentals. "Spider Light" is marked by an electronic drum sample and keyboards, while "Twax" offers tubular bells and other mallet percussion, along with mechanical engine noise. In keeping with the album's themes of separation and togetherness, the track list alternates between these instrumentals, solo vocals, and two-part harmony. Sundur's delicate poignancy is certainly darker than on prior albums ("Nothing ever stays the same"), but it's just as fascinating, and has the potential to be deeply affecting.

In your panoramas...
The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.

Alice Cooper Doesn’t Run from Danger

The Alice Cooper story is, first and foremost, an extraordinary tale of “split personality”. Like something straight out of “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, singer Vincent Furnier surrendered to the domination of showman Alice Cooper. But by his own admission, the man who always speaks of “Alice” in the third person in interviews remains a simple, completely normal guy in private, far from the stage where he enacts his excesses and provocations. Throughout a career stretching over 50 years, there is an evident streak of schizophrenia in his many stylistic changes. While we credit him with the invention of shock rock, he has ventured into almost every genre with varying degrees of success, from pop to nascent hard rock, with forays into heavy metal, new wave and industrial…

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.
