Radiohead multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood has done more than prove his mettle with film score composition throughout the 2010s. Right off the back of his Academy Award-nominated score for Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread, he delivers his score (and second collaboration with director Lynne Ramsay after 2011's We Need to Talk About Kevin) for the thriller You Were Never Really Here. Where the rumbling, discordant bass of There Will Be Blood and the majestic, sweeping strings of Phantom Thread make up the lavish soundscapes of some of Greenwood's catalog, You Were Never Really Here is undeniably a stark thorn plunged into that aural canvas. Matching the unsettling atmosphere depicted onscreen, the album is a plethora of different kinds of organized chaos. "Sandy's Necklace" presents out-of-tune strings chiming with stuttering electronics before moving into mid-paced organic percussion, resonant viola, and palm-muted guitar riffs. "Nausea" is composed of thudding electronic beats, scuzzy synth leads, and completely out-of-time snare drums that seem to almost catch up to the bar change before abruptly disappearing again. Album highlight "Dark Streets" is composed of minimal 808-esque percussion, arpeggiated synth bass, and washes of filtered chords that punctuate every other bar. Its reprise opts for more organic percussion fed through distortion -- almost sounding like a totally deconstructed Amen break -- while rough bass cushions the familiar synth riff. That isn't to say that the score is without its softer moments. The album is bookended by "Tree Synthesizers" and "Tree Strings." The former is a beautifully composed piece with jangly strings that swim like wind chimes while swirls of ambience surround it, bringing some of the work of William Orbit to mind. The latter builds upon this with wonderfully strummed harp and resonant cello while a viola moves throughout the mix, tumbling around it like a slowly spinning feather. You Were Never Really Here is yet another example of Greenwood's unlimited creativity, innovation, and fearless approach to film score composition and music-making in general.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.
