The frontman of Icelandic band Sigur Rós, Jónsi, had tried his hand at a solo career ten years ago with the album Go. In order to get the ball rolling in this direction again, it took an offer from A. G. Cook, the founder of PC Music and Charli XCX’s creative director... Being one of the most sought after producers around, A. G. Cook’s offer was hard to refuse. Why would Jónsi say no to a collaboration that would attract alt-pop, prog rock and experimental fans? The album kicks off with Exhale, a track with an apt title that uses synth samples modelled on Jónsi’s breaths. Then we’re thrown into the future with Hold before being taken in the complete opposite direction with the very 80s Cannibal (featuring Liz Fraser from the Cocteau Twins). Apart from the dancefloor track Salt Licorice with Swedish icon Robyn and a few moments that are a bit ’too much’, Shiver is an album made for tripping out under a duvet. There are haunting ambient passages and amazing atmospheric songs like Granade and Beautiful Boy on which Jónsi brings out his famous falsetto. This is certainly a record that lives up to its promises. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

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, even forty-five years after its release.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

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.
