For anyone who went to hip dance clubs, Covenant's "Dead Stars," from 2000's United States of Mind, was inescapable. Its synth pulses made the song irresistible for fans of EBM (or "future pop," if you prefer) and anyone who likes to dance. The follow-up falls just short of anything as noteworthy, though Northern Light, produced by Jacob Hellner (Rammstein), still has its fair share of strong arrangements. "We Stand Alone" and "Call the Ships to Port" illuminate the record, with Covenant's recognizable deep vocals and rolling rhythms and nods to Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb. But like contemporaries VNV Nation, the Swedish trio has learned to write songs that dip below 100 beats per minute. "Invisible and Silent," accompanied by a chorus of children, is a moving but strange moment for a band who usually layers stringent dance beats. Aside from these slow moments, the group's fifth album provides more than a few join-in-the-chant anthems.

When Burwell visited the Coen Brothers

Carter Burwell has just put the finishing touches to the soundtrack of “Wonderstruck” by Todd Haynes. So this is a good opportunity to take a look back over the highlights of his career, which link him to the great work of the Coen brothers.

The Beatles in 12 Albums

Barely seven years spent in the studio. An immeasurable heritage that still has a very strong influence today. The Beatles are a unique case in the history of popular music. The sixties music scene was an era of huge transition. With the Fab Four- helped by Bob Dylan on the other side of the Atlantic- rock music left its carefree adolescence and began adulthood. The four bubbly, naive boys from Liverpool would be transformed into independent artists, a life we follow through their discography.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.
