Some artists just fit into the whole 80s revival genre effortlessly. Vintage synths, saxophone solos and gated reverb have never been further away from cheesy than with Lost Girls by Bat For Lashes. Maybe because those tools are at the root of a baroque electro-pop sound that’s been brewing for over a decade. Natasha Khan’s ever-changing approach to music started with Fur and Gold (2007)’s lascivious chamber-folk: the seeds of her 5th album were already planted by then – an astonishing soprano, an overactive imagination, and colorful instrumentation. Comparisons with Kate Bush came one after the other. These days, it might be easier to reference contemporaries such as CHVRCHES or Ladytron, thanks to her recognizable synth groove signature.


However, that first comparison still stands today, despite some stylistic changes. Bush and Khan have the same propensity for ambivalence: the ambiguity of desire, or melancholy and feminine strength, in addition to being a major theme for both singers, is manifested through tasteful vocal nuance that allows each to glide between whispers and sky-high melodies. The voices on Lost Girls are characterized by that same sense of restraint, but the instrumentation doesn’t necessarily follow in the same stride. For example, on the barely camouflaged sexual allegory of The Hunger (supposedly about vampires …), Khan combines the majesty of a reverb-drenched organ with a syncopated funk bass line, communicating a very on-point sense of urgency. As far as albums go, this one is enjoyably retro, bringing the listener far away from 2019 and any socio-political turmoil. Some much-needed escapism for “interesting” times. © Alexis Renaudat/Qobuz

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

Shooting Big Star

It took a short legacy of only two years and three albums for Big Star to enter the rock 'n' roll pantheon. Unsuccessful in the beginning of the 70’s, Alex Chilton and Chris Bell’s band is now acclaimed as one of the most influential of its kind.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.
