With each Black Marble album, Chris Stewart's music has gotten warmer and nearer to his listeners. On It's Immaterial, his melodies grew bigger and sweeter while holding onto the quintessential aloofness of his coldwave and synth-pop influences. The gradual thaw of Black Marble's music quickens on Bigger Than Life, Stewart's Sacred Bones debut. Where his previous album was literally a departure -- he wrote it in Brooklyn while planning his escape to Los Angeles -- this one is an arrival that celebrates his new life in the City of Angels. Since Stewart wrote and recorded all of the album on his own, it could have easily sounded cloistered, but there's a feeling of reaching out on Bigger Than Life that makes it special within Black Marble's body of work. As a singer and musician, Stewart sounds more confident and more vulnerable than ever. Without the security blankets of echo and reverb that cloaked his vocals on his previous releases, his voice rings out when he sings "I'm just living more" on the title track and on "Call," the album's closing wish for intimacy. There's a greater clarity to Bigger Than Life's sound as well, relatively speaking -- on songs like "Daily Driver," the hazy twinkle of his analog synths calls to mind sunbeams fighting their way through smog and glass. Stewart also brings his audience closer with bittersweet, deceptively simple songwriting. On the standout "One Eye Open," the story of a restless tightrope walker echoes the way Stewart teeters between intimacy and distance throughout the album. Similarly, "Grey Eyeliner" plays like a Craigslist missed connection set to song, hovering between mystery and approachability with a lilt that recalls the Magnetic Fields. Stewart is at the peak of his powers on "Feels," where the oddly poignant hook "I used to have a radio show" expresses the need for connection that makes up the heart of Bigger Than Life. His choice to reveal more and explore a feeling of belonging instead of sticking with the trope of the tortured, isolated artiste is one that pays off richly: With its surprising warmth and immediacy, Bigger Than Life is some of Black Marble's most affecting music. ~ Heather Phares

Fabric, una institución inglesa

Desde 1999 Fabric constituye el centro neurálgico de la escena electrónica británica. A partir de ese año sus series recopilatarias Fabric y FabricLive han llegado con regularidad a las tiendas para goce de los amantes de la dance music de calidad, mientras los clubbers destrozan sus zapatillas bailando cada fin de semana en sus tres salas, todas con una programación de ensueño. Una mirada a la historia de esta institución característicamente inglesa.

Kraftwerk, 50 años por delante de su época

Kraftwerk, el grupo de música electrónica más influyente de la historia, ha ido siempre por delante de su tiempo. Por delante en términos de tecnología, de composición, de presencia en escena. A la vez, los alemanes no han dejado de demostrarle al gran público que las máquinas son capaces de despertar emociones, abriendo camino al techno, la new wave e incluso al hip-hop.

De cómo el reggae lograría conquistar el pop norteamericano

Nunca el reggae había alcanzado tanta popularidad desde los tiempos de Bob Marley. El caso es que desde hace tres años los éxitos de las estrellas norteamericanas del pop han abrazado las sonoridades jamaicanas. Beyonce, Rihanna, Drake o Justin Bieber son solo algunas de las que han puesto recientemente su voz en algún tema de dancehall, versión «club» del reggae que el mítico productor King Jammy se sacó de la manga a mediados de los 80 con Sleng Teng, primer reggae electrónico de la historia. Repasemos el calendario de tan excitante invasión.
