Forging an uncharted pathway in that galaxy far, far away, creator, writer, and show runner Jon Favreau introduced a new character to the Star Wars universe in 2019 with The Mandalorian. Like fan favorite antihero Boba Fett, the streaming television show's protagonist was also a bounty hunter with questionable morals, bound to a professional code that was challenged by a vulnerable target that would change his life forever. Unbound from the restrictions of the decades-long Skywalker film saga and its beloved scores by John Williams, Favreau and composer Ludwig Goransson (Black Panther, Creed) embrace the relative freedom and push the Star Wars limits into fresh visual, sonic, and storytelling territory. For each episode (referred to as "Chapters"), Goransson crafted individual soundtracks that morphed alongside the ever-changing television series format, delving into wildly inventive (for the Star Wars universe) areas that incorporated electronic textures, hip-hop beats, and non-orchestral instrumentation like guitars and synths. In The Mandalorian: Chapter 1, Goransson introduces this new character to the Star Wars canon with an appropriately bombastic theme for the swaggering gunslinger. Both triumphant and instantly memorable, "The Mandalorian" is familiar enough to connect to the rich Williams legacy -- with all the fanfare and strings that entails -- but is just outside-the-box enough to establish a whole crop of future possibilities. Like "Rey's Theme," it's a welcome addition to the 2010s Star Wars era. Elsewhere, "HammerTime" boasts pounding drums and unnerving synth effects, while the tribal "Blurg Attack" harkens back to Goransson's excellent work on Black Panther. The clearest indication of how far the composer is willing to push the limits arrives on the skittering "Bounty Droid," which amplifies the dramatic bombast of the scene's intense shoot-out attack with something akin to '90s electronica mashed with Hans Zimmer's work in the Christopher Nolan movie-verse. This is not your grandfather's John Williams score. Rather, like the show itself, Goransson's work injects a much-needed freshness to the franchise that hints at the possibilities to come once the Skywalker saga ends with Episode IX. Synths, electric guitars, and hip-hop beats are now part of the Star Wars musical canon, bringing these soundtracks into the 21st century with Baby Yoda in tow.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds 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.

Iggy and the Stooges: The Dawn of Punk

In 1969, a group of self-confessed cretins dynamited rock'n'roll with a charge of distortion and nihilistic lyrics. At the head of these Stooges was Iggy Pop, a sort of obsessive, rebellious Nijinsky, who was destined to become the Godfather of punk rock.
