After Austra's Olympia tour finished, Katie Stelmanis moved to Montreal for a change of pace that ended up feeling more like solitary confinement than solitude. However, the unexpected isolation may have been a blessing in disguise for her music: Future Politics is a direct, affecting set of songs about intimacy, technology, and above all, hope. The group strips back a bit from Olympia's lavish sounds, trimming down from a six-piece to the trio of Stelmanis, drummer Maya Postepski, and bassist/sound designer Dorian Wolf. Though there's nothing superfluous here, Austra's influences are wide-ranging, spanning Star Trek, Naomi Klein, and electro cumbia (a discovery Stelmanis made after leaving Montreal for Mexico City), which leaves its stamp on the haunting finale, "43," a song inspired by the 2014 kidnapping and massacre of 43 men in the Mexican city of Iguala. By acknowledging darkness, Stelmanis makes her idealism that much brighter -- a duality she uses brilliantly on Future Politics. She channels it through her vocals and beats, the forces driving Austra's music since "The Beat and the Pulse." The delicate waver in her voice does a lot of heavy lifting, carrying the pain of the present and hope for the future on songs like the slow-burning opener "We Were Alive" and "Utopia," where her tentative optimism is more poignant and powerful than a straightforward anthem. Later, the operatic purity of her high notes adds to the uncanniness of "I'm a Monster," while her tender delivery on "I Love You More Than You Love Yourself" reaffirms that no matter how conceptual it gets, Austra's music always has a personal element. The rhythms that animate Future Politics are just as expressive, adding defiant danceability to the title track, a crisp edge to "Gaia"'s swooning chorus, and an alluringly mechanical sensuality to "Angel in Your Eye." Austra may have traded some of Feel It Break's compelling rawness for a more polished approach on Olympia, but Future Politics' rare balance of poise and intensity makes it their most accomplished and emotionally satisfying album yet.

Los Grandes Angulares...
Objetivo la luna: The Dark Side Of The Moon

Álbum clave en la discografía de Pink Floyd, The Dark Side Of The Moon es el fruto de una elaboración relativamente lenta que se remonta prácticamente a 1968. A Saucerful Of Secrets (la canción principal del álbum del mismo nombre) fue, para Nick Mason, el punto de partida. Un tiempo más tarde, Ummagumma permitió la expresión de unas personalidades que se tendrían que amalgamar para conseguir el éxito. Pink Floyd continuó su búsqueda del disco ideal con Meddle, en el que la banda acentuó su dominio del trabajo en estudio, y Atom Heart Mother, antes de alcanzar el nirvana con The Dark Side Of The Moon, cuya perfección aún no ha sido nunca erosionada.

Moby, y se hizo la luz

No hay muchos artistas como Moby que hayan pasado del punk al techno/house y al pop, sin dejar de componer música ambient. Con motivo de la publicación de Reprise, el álbum que celebra sus 30 años de carrera, Qobuz echa un vistazo a la trayectoria de un artista que ha tenido múltiples contratiempos antes de encontrar finalmente un camino artístico más tranquilo.

Sofia Coppola on Air

En su nuevo film, La seducción, Sofia Coppola cuenta de nuevo con la colaboración de Thomas Mars, cantante del grupo francés Phoenix, habitual en las películas de la realizadora. Una buena ocasión para revisitar algunos de los mejores pasajes musicales en la filmografía de la hija de Francis Ford, y en particular la banda sonora de culto de Las vírgenes suicidas, firmada por el conjunto versallés Air.
