Josh T. Pearson picked up pared-down rock’n’roll just where it had been left by Jeffrey Lee Pierce of the Gun Club and the Nick Cave of the Bad Seeds. Up until now, Pearson has been defined for many by his masterpiece, the double-barrelled, messianic work, The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads that he brought out in 2001 with his trio Lift To Experience. He brought out other pieces as part of the same outfit, and also some solo works (Last Of The Country Gentlemen en 2011), but that was really his moment of glory.

With The Straight Hits! (every track has the word "straight" in it), which he says he recorded in just a few days, Josh T. Pearson is returning to rock'n'roll with a Bible in his left hand and a guitar in his right. Like a man possessed, the Texan vomits out blues, rockabilly, psychedelia, country and plenty of other gobbets of whatever he has been digesting. What's more, he loves to quote scripture (surely quite without realising...), like on Give It To Me Straight where he apes the Jagger of Rocks Off or on Straight At Me where he takes off 96 Tears by ? And The Mysterians. But it's not all sound and fury, and Pearson throws in a good brace of depressive, beautiful ballads (Straight Down Again, Whiskey Straight Love and A Love Song (Set Me Straight)) which lend even more credibility to this finely-played and written rock'n'roll project without sugaring the pill or rounding off the hard edges. © Marc Zisman/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.

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. However, each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.

Norah Jones in 10 Songs

Even though her albums are released on jazz label Blue Note, Norah Jones’s music has never simply been jazz, just as it has never solely been pop, nor folk, country or soul… Since the early noughties, the American singer and pianist has embraced many styles, often breaking norms in pursuit of her own unique sound, a sound she loves to share through collaborations with different musicians of diverse origin and style. Discover the world of Norah Jones in 10 songs.
