Being a settled down, cherished and serene artist certainly doesn’t prevent certain works from bursting out into much more intense moments. With this in mind, Rest is not just another album for Charlotte Gainsbourg. Rest isn’t just for the dead, but the living too! And for siestas… And the rest as well… Four years after the death of her sister Kate, she lays down all her cards on the table from her 46 years in this world. At the heart of this record we find the weight of a heavily charismatic father (Lying With You) as well as the watch of others (I’m A Lie) and recent tragic deaths (Kate), giving birth to an album with a rare emotional force. Clearly, Charlotte Gainsbourg has the gift of manipulating all this internal nitroglycerine with care. And, at any moment, we’re tempted to call the pathos police… To accompany her on this work of cathartic cambers, she has invited along Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo from Daft Punk with whom she co-signed the single Rest but above all, for the rest of this fifth album, she is joined by Sébastien Akchoté a.k.a. SebastiAn, a virtuoso from the electro clan Ed Banger, who has tailored here a perfect array of instrumentals. A dress made from Gainsbourgian fabrics like never before, that Sebastian sews in his own way - modern, but not too modern… One track from a certain Paul McCartney (Songbird In A Cage) and two from Connan Mockasin (Dans vos airs and Les Crocodiles) come to complete this multifaceted work that is without a doubt the most personal by the author. © MZ/Qobuz

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.

Female Jazz Singers: 10 New Names to Know

When it comes to jazz singers, Billie, Ella, Sarah, and Nina may be firm favourites, but this vocal style is sprinkled with an array of exceptional singers ready to make their mark on this legendary genre. Can we still call it jazz? Or is it just that jazz as we know it is changing? Either way, it doesn’t make these vocalists any less incredible. So, without further ado, here are ten women who are making an impact on the world of jazz.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
