Unlike Patrick Watson's previous release, the home-recorded Adventures in Your Own Backyard, Love Songs for Robots was recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles and Studio Pierre Marchand in Montreal. While the result may not be quite as sparse or intimate, despite a much shorter list of instruments and collaborators, it's at least as intense and melancholic. Also unlike Adventures, synths are featured prominently on the record. Love Songs for Robots' overriding emotion is one of yearning, with minor keys, sobbing electric guitars including slides, and wistful, dissonant synths, such as on the eerie "Good Morning Mr. Wolf" ("Getting tired of wasting worries/Why not let the worries worry for themselves for a change"). Similarly, emotive vocals and guitar affect the stunning, distorted blues lament "Turn into the Noise." Bending, humming pitches from all instrumentation create a more ambient setting for the album and an otherworldly effect, like a fictional chamber pop band from the Twin Peaks universe. The elegant, meandering "Hearts" mixes acoustic and electric tones to slowly develop a sweet folk tune into a driving, modulating art rock piece, and whether on the Abbey Road-like "Grace" or the beautifully atmospheric "In Circles," Watson's wispy falsetto blends with mournful guitar like a sibling act with a chip on its shoulders. In the end, Love Songs for Robots is well represented by its title: weird, heartfelt, haunting, stimulating, and unexpectedly sultry; it holds much for humans to appreciate, too. ~ Marcy Donelson

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of electronic experiences, Nils Frahm’s talent has managed to get everyone to agree for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.

New Order: From Darkness to Dance-floor

How does one Mancunian group move from perhaps the gloomiest band of the punk era to a master of the dance-floor? In the early eighties, straight out of Joy Division’s ashes, New Order marked one of the first successful unions of rock’n’roll and dance music. A perfect soundtrack for a morose, Thatcherite England.
