In a little more than a decade, Vampire Weekend has taken it slow. After the eponymous Vampire Weekend (2008), Contra (2010) and Modern Vampires of the City (2013), Ezra Koenig’s band took a six-year break punctuated by the departure of the very influential Rostam Batmanglij who released an excellent solo record Half-Light in 2017. Their last album to date, Modern Vampires of the City, was a distinctive evolution in the works of the New York combo. The Talking Heads influence had been abandoned for a more refined and polished pop sound, found as much in the melodies and harmonies as in its style. Koenig, now the main creative force left in the group, has left New York and relocated to LA. Father of the Bride confirms his artistic ambition. His central style remains inherently pop, but each of the 18 songs in the album offer a different outlook. There is a bit of everything in this copious record; The Beatles, Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac, Supertramp, Paul Simon, Wilco, Grateful Dead and hundreds of other influences can be noted. The collaborators on the album are equally diverse: the pedal steel and impressionist guitars of Greg Leisz, the voice of Danielle Haim of HAIM, the guitar of Dave Longstreth of the Dirty Projectors, Steve Lacy of the Internet and even Rostam enters the fold on two titles. While listening to the record, one might ask themselves if Ezra Koenig has made a White Album (the most eclectic album by the Beatles) all by himself… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Labels have never been her thing… Jazz, pop, country, folk, world, Norah Jones has always played music that she has to blur boundaries. And that her collaborators include legends of jazz like Wayne Shorter, of soul like Ray Charles, of country like Willie Nelson, of rap like Q-Tip and of rock’n’roll like Keith Richards, this American has worked tirelessly to, above all, be herself. A serene and beautifully nonchalant voice capable of inhabiting her own themes as well as revisiting any song. Three years after the ambitious Day Breaks, this brief Begin Again (28 minutes, 7 tracks) is more than just a thrown-together collection of tracks. Instead, it’s a new self-portrait, alternating between assumed pop (My Heart is Full), expressive soul (It was You) and up-tempo jazz (Begin Again). To stay amongst people of taste, Jeff Tweedy from Wilco made appearances on the magnificent A Song with No Name and Wintertime. Surrounded as always by the finest musicians (Brian Blade's velvet drums are wonderful), Norah Jones masterfully guides us through this no-man’s land of a little bit of jazz, a bit pop, a bit soul. And it's as enjoyable as ever. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

What is my purpose? What will come of the legacy of those who have influenced me? And what will I leave behind? These are all the big questions that Jamila Woods asks herself going into her second album suitably named Legacy! Legacy!, a Qobuzissime album! Three years after the release of Heavn, the soul sister from Chicago brings together twelve songs all named after the artists that influenced them. Musicians, painters, writers, activists, poets, they’re all there! And the lucky few are: Betty Davis, Zora Neale Hurston, Nikki Giovanni, Sonia Sanchez, Frida Kahlo, Eartha Kitt, Miles Davis, Muddy Waters, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Sun Ra, Octavia Butler and James Baldwin. There is nothing obvious or didactic here as the young African-American who is ever-so attached to her native Chicago never does out-and-out covers but less subtle “in the style ofs” all while retaining her own distinct style. A poet one day (she acts as artistic director for YCA, a center dedicated to young poets) and a musician the other, she is even a teacher on bank holidays! As the worthy heir of Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill, all her words are wrapped around ultra-slick grooves with a modernized nu-soul twist. When it comes to features, Jamila Woods helps her local economy by inviting along friends that, for the most part, come from the underground scene of the Windy City: the trumpetist Nico Segal, MC Saba, Nitty Scott, theMIND, Jasminfire. Chance the Rapper’s protégé has mixed intelligence and class, commitment, enjoyment and groove into 49 minutes. Perfect. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

In the fourth song of her eighth album, Pink alludes to the “attic” in which she locks up everything she keeps secret. But if there is one thing that the Family Portrait vocalist wishes to get out in the open, it is indeed her love for music, regardless of the genre. Through the soul and retro infused Hustle and the electronic nature of Love me Anyway, Pink proves yet again that she is the queen of stylistic variety. For this last track, she pairs up with country singer Chris Stapleton, whilst for Can We Pretend, she is surrounded by electro trio Cash Cash, (who released the sensational Take Me Home in 2013). Among the (numerous) other features on this album are Wrabel on 90 Days, Khalid on Hurts 2B Human, as well as Beck on We Could Have it All. Pink not only adores music in the broad sense of the term, but also appreciates her fellow artists who help her to produce such eclectic musical pieces – much like the multicolored album cover. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

The story of this album’s genesis is both a sad and beautiful one. Sad because it is the band’s 8th and final album (in their initial line-up at least), but beautiful because we get the pleasure of hearing the voice of Dolores O'Riordan once more, who died suddenly on 15th January 2018. It’s thanks to demos recorded a few weeks before her passing that this musical resurrection has been possible: Noel Hogan, The Cranberries’ guitarist, had started working on the tracks in May 2017 while on tour, before recording eleven demos with the singer a few months later. It’s with the support of the O’Riordan family that the bandmembers came back together once more to complete the songs. Strangely, the titles and lyrics are often about loss and endings in these songs that pack significant emotional impact, not only because of the tragedy that surrounds them, but also because the melodies and arrangements are often intrinsically melancholic. The strings that surround the finale of a piece like Lost, or the litanic piano of Catch Me If You Can, only reinforce the chills that flow through the listener when listening to In the End. But as they have often demonstrated over the past three decades, this Irish band never loses sight of a certain hope and energy; the lyrical melodies of Got It (with its overwhelming bass), and Summer Song are here to prove it. The ballads Illusion and In the End have a kind of twilight quality, but of the softest and most benevolent sunset there is. With this album recorded in London by producer Stephen Street (having already been at the helm of Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? in 1993 and No Need to Argue in 1994), The Cranberries bow out with elegance and modesty. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

"Piano Book" is a compilation of post-Bach piano music’s greatest hits. Lang Lang puts together a retrospective anthology beginning with J.S. Bach’s Prelude in C major from the first book of the Well-Tempered Clavier. The piece, in fully written arpeggio, which every piano student has studied to practice fingering, articulations, and harmonic tiering is followed by Beethoven’s Lettre à Elise. Lang Lang then invites Mendelssohn (La Fileuse), Chopin (15th Prelude from Opus 28), and Mozart (Allegro from Sonata "Semplice" or Variations on "Ah, vous dirai-je Maman") The record also includes lesser-known repertoire from such composers as Badarzewska-Baranowska, Czerny, or Clementi and a few Chinese classic and traditional / popular songs from diverse parts of the world. Lang Lang has fun, especially when he plays French music. Performing Debussy’s Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum, he enjoys each afterbeat, plays with the basses, and even sings. © Qobuz

Between the release of their next studio album and their last LP Blue and Lonesome, the Rolling Stones give us Honk. Revisiting their work from 1971 onwards, this umpteenth compilation features great classics (Start Me Up, Brown Sugar, Tumbling Dice, Angie, It’s Only Rock’n’Roll (But I Like It), Fool to Cry, Miss You, Emotional Rescue) but also some rarities. To remind us how the old rockers still have it in them, the record also contains ten live tracks some of which feature the likes of Dave Grohl (Bitch), Ed Sheeran (Beast of Burden), Brad Paisley (Dead Flowers) and Florence + The Machine (Wild Horses). A must-have for fans. © Charlotte Saintoin/ Qobuz

Is this album a soundtrack of a future imaginary film?  For their fifth studio album, Cage the Elephant decided to take a very cinematic approach. Social Cues was conceived at a time where the band’s leader, Matt Shultz was going through an emotional break-up. These songs therefore have a cathartic motivation, and the band chose the aesthetics of John Carpenter’s horror films to translate this dwindling love. Recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles, the American six-piece’s album describes a dull interior landscape, which is reflected in a little gem like Goodbye, in which a classical orchestra (in particular a piano and strings) mixes with pop rock instruments. The other surprise of the album was the duet with Beck on Night Running, in which dub is mixed with rock guitars. Outside of Carpenter, Shultz would also have been influenced by Fassbinder while writing Social Cues. The emotional power of these two directors’ films can be felt in songs requiring a thick skin (Ready to Let Go, House of Glass, Tokyo Smoke, and especially Broken Boy with its aggressive rhythm…), while Skin and Bones and Love’s the Only Way offer up some hope in this half-horrific half-depressive work. Another influence - of a different kind – is a tribute to David Bowie’s Ashes to Ashes in the chorus of the album’s titular song. For a young man burnt by love, it was probably the perfect reference. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

This is going down in history. Queen B surprised us with the release of a live album taken from her two dazzling concerts at Coachella in 2018, chronicled by a Netflix documentary. B performs a retrospective, revisiting 40 tracks from her 22-year career. There are no new songs here, but there is a studio cover with Tay Keith of Before I Let Go, the Frankie Beverly and Maze 1981 soul track. Other Destiny’s Child members Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland make bonus appearances on Lose My Breath, Say My Name and Soldier, husband Jay-Z on Déjà Vu, sister Solange on Get Me Bodied, and her daughter sings Afro-American anthem Sing and Lift Every Voice. This performance effectively explains why it was nicknamed ‘Beychella’, as this makes its mark on the festival’s history. And that was the goal, with 200 people on stage, colossal high-budget visual spectacle in this immense two-hour performance highlighting afro-feminist empowerment; Beyoncé has earnt her throne. “When I decided to do Coachella, instead of me pulling out my flower crown, it was more important that I brought our culture to Coachella.” To the sound of the second lines of a New Orleans brass band, a revamped drumline, Malcolm X on Don’t Hurt Yourself and amidst multiple references to African-American history, the queen of pop inhabiting the Queen Nefertiti reminds us of the importance of her discography in the 3rd millennium. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Dido’s fifth studio album Still on My Mind was produced with her elder brother and long-time partner in crime Rollo Armstrong (who is also co-founder of the electronic group, Faithless). “It was made in such an easy way, all the vocals recorded on the sofa, a lot of it recorded at home”, the famous performer of the hits Thank You and Here With Me explained. Over the course of 12 songs the two artists tried to encapsulate all the musical styles they loved, from 90’s dance and dream pop to folk and hip-hop. Putting the finishing touches to this colourful array of genres are stunning background vocals (Give You Up) and a melancholic piano (Walking By). The lyrics of the album generally revolve around the theme of love, whether in a positive light relating to the power of music (You Don’t Need a God) or being hurt by someone (Give You Up). Dido (whose real name is Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O’Malley Armstrong), dedicated this collection of songs to her young son which is perhaps the reason why these tracks almost seem like lullabies, especially Still on My Mind and the beautiful melody in Some Kind of Love. Accompanied by a simple acoustic guitar, her gentle voice performs wonders. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
Founded in 2015 by Swiss conductor and trombonist Lorenzo Ghirlanda, the German-based Vox Orchester is made up of around twenty young professional musicians from ten different countries, who have all grown up learning instrumental techniques and modes of playing characteristics of baroque music. Lorenzo Ghirlanda’s credo is that listening – and playing – ancient music is like discovering “new music”, because the young musicians’ fervour safeguards them from any form of routine or preconception. And it is precisely in this spirit that the Vox Orchester’s musicians author this album dedicated to Purcell and Locke’s music written for Shakespeare’s plays. While his texts have long conquered the entire planet, English music has often remained confined within the island’s borders. Recorded in 2018 in the auditorium of Radiotelevisione svizzera in Lugano, this music is the work of two English composers, prior to Handel’s arrival in London. Ghirlanda and his musicians’ interpretation aims to highlight the international nature of baroque music at that time, and more precisely the Italian influence Monteverdi, and later Corelli, had on European productions. © François Hudry/Qobuz

The brilliantly inventive Francesco Tristano Schlimé is having fun with these Tokyo Stories. The Luxembourgish pianist’s numerous references shine through with primed balance, as if rejuvenated by the artist’s mastery of multi-style collages. While very contrasting, each title flows naturally to the next. Although a minimalist, almost repetitive style is used to full effect, it never hampers the very clear desire to constantly renew rhythms, like in Insomnia, or Electric Mirror that becomes a beautiful tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach, one of Francesco Tristano Schlimé’s idols. The more fragmented style of Pakuchi, with its overlapping layers and light jazz rhythms, appears to veer towards territories of contemporary creation rarely explored by “electro” artists. Tokyo Stories rarely explores – to our great delight – the spacey and meditative atmospheres so popular to the overwhelming neo-classic-pop piano scene. Only momentum and impetus matter here. A stellar album that truly highlights Francesco Tristano Schlimé’s multifaceted musicality at the highest level. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz
