The wave of lockdown albums continues into spring 2021 with English group Morcheeba, one of the pioneers of the English trip hop scene that ruled that charts during the 90s. A duo since Paul Godfrey's departure in 2014, the combo of Ross Godfrey (production) and Skye Edwards (vocals), freed from their touring schedule, took their time to meticulously fine-tune this tenth studio album. We find almost all of the group's hallmarks on this record: downtempo beats, a soulful vibe, rock guitars that don't intrude too much (the single Sounds Of Blue—pure 90s trip hop—or the instrumental Sulphur Soul with its heavy drums) but instead escape into the orchestration of the songs. An example of these hallmarks are the Californian guitars of Oh Oh Yeah, accompanied by steamy vocals, or Skye Edwards' chorus on Killed Our Love which conjures up the languid atmosphere of a deserted beach. It's as if lockdown has provoked a desire for wide open spaces in the duo, American in nature perhaps, with these little folk/country moments as on Falling Skies where the vocals are drenched in reverb. A record of true elegance. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.

Alice Cooper Doesn’t Run from Danger

The Alice Cooper story is, first and foremost, an extraordinary tale of “split personality”. Like something straight out of “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, singer Vincent Furnier surrendered to the domination of showman Alice Cooper. But by his own admission, the man who always speaks of “Alice” in the third person in interviews remains a simple, completely normal guy in private, far from the stage where he enacts his excesses and provocations. Throughout a career stretching over 50 years, there is an evident streak of schizophrenia in his many stylistic changes. While we credit him with the invention of shock rock, he has ventured into almost every genre with varying degrees of success, from pop to nascent hard rock, with forays into heavy metal, new wave and industrial…

“Thriller”: The Anatomy of a Masterpiece

With "Thriller” in 1982, the best-selling album of all time, Michael Jackson broke down the boundaries between styles, races and audiences. However, most of all, it was an album that completely shook up the pop music industry of the 20th century.
