Heralding the addition of singer/guitarist Meriel Barham, who would become the Pale Saints' focal point following the exit of original frontman Ian Masters, Half-Life bridges the gap between the soundscapes of the band's debut LP, The Comforts of Madness, and its more conventional, pop-oriented follow-up, In Ribbons. Helmed by Wedding Present producer Chris Allison, this four-song set nevertheless manages to explore the altered states of the Pale Saints' earliest and strongest work, particularly on the vivid "Baby Maker" and the eerie "Two Sick Sisters." The closing "A Revelation" is anything but, however, its bland production rendering the group indistinguishable from countless other guitar pop outfits.

In your panoramas...
Shoegaze, the calm & the storm

The two faces of shoegaze, the rock current that lit up England in the early 90s, couldn’t be more fundamentally opposed: a fierce battle between violent guitars and silky vocals. From its precursors like the Cocteau Twins and Jesus & Mary Chain, to its godfathers My Bloody Valentine, Ride and Slowdive, shoegaze is always on the move and many of their heirs still strum their guitars and create electric sounds.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, “Lhasa” de Sela still made her unique mark on contemporary popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are all accomplished works in their own right and open the door to a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dream and reality. Full of both light and darkness, these songs are imbued with the genuine feelings of an artist whose heartfelt vocals reach out and pull the listener in, creating an intimate relationship with the audience. Looking back at the life of “Lhasa” de Sela, the makings of a legend are visible like chapters in a novel, complete with all the emotion that comes with a beautiful but heartbreaking storyline.
