Almost ten years after "Mr. Brightside" helped turn the Killers into new millennial rock sensations, the time has come for a hits collection. Calling the compilation Direct Hits -- a punning title that feels timeless but has rarely been used before, a nifty encapsulation of the group's style and attributes -- the Killers cannily use the singles-centric conceit to showcase the band at their overblown best, emphasizing their arena-sized neo-new wave just slightly over their Springsteenisms. Both are on display on the two new songs -- "Shot at the Night" and "Just Another Girl," songs that sound as if U2, Springsteen, and the Cars created a supergroup in 1988 -- but the main benefit of Direct Hits, especially for those listeners who have always doubted the skills of the Killers, is how the operatic ambitions of Sam's Town feel not so extravagant when bookended by selections from Day & Age and Battle Born. All three of the albums -- which are represented by three cuts a piece -- sound strong here but what really has lasted are those singles from 2004's Hot Fuss, especially the initial breakthroughs "Mr. Brightside" and "All These Things That I've Done," which now seem to capture a particular moment in time and yet also transcend it.

Tausendundeine Stimme aus dem Orient

Es begann mit dem Gesang des Muezzin und der Musik aus der vorislamischen Zeit und reicht bis hin zum Schrei aus dem palästinensischen Underground und zum elektronischen Chaabi aus Ägypten – hier finden Sie einen Überblick über die Klänge, welche die unendlich vielfältige Musik der arabischen Welt bereichern.

Erased Tapes, ein nicht allzu klassisches Label

Gleich bei seiner Gründung im Jahre 2007 machte sich Erased Tapes als eines der innovativsten Labels der letzten fünfzehn Jahre einen Namen und hatte beim Publikum großen Erfolg. Da es manchmal allzu schnell auf seine neoklassischen Aushängeschilder (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds) reduziert wurde, suchte das Londoner Label nach neuen Ideen an der Grenze zu Ambient, Electronica und Experimental, wobei der harmonisch zusammengestellte Katalog dem Deutschen Robert Raths zu verdanken ist...

Americana, die Wurzeln Amerikas

Der Name mag nach einer verrauchten Marketing-Strategie klingen, tatsächlich verbirgt sich hinter dem Wort „Americana“ jedoch ein Musikstil, der seit mehr als 20 Jahren Rock, Country, Blues und Rhythm’n’Blues miteinander fusioniert. Und wie in allen Großfamilien treffen wir auch hier auf die unterschiedlichsten Personen: die rebellische Tochter, der kultivierte Onkel, der zappelige Vater, die tratschende Cousine…
