Before moving to the white-noise shoegazing tendencies of There's Always Someplace You'd Rather Be, Sianspheric seemed fairly dedicated to the more ambient end of dream poppy -- as its title suggests, Somnium has a slow, hazy feel that draws from the most sleepy work of bands like Slowdive and Kitchens of Distinction. This sound is utterly pleasant in and of itself, and will doubtlessly appeal to adherents of the most blissed-out pop genres, but Somnium gets most interesting when its constructs its guitars around off-kilter songwriting -- tracks like "This Window" actually resemble some of Red House Painters' dreamier work, and it's in spots like this that Somnium offers something truly inventive.

My Bloody Valentine, the Inner Experience

Thirty years after its release, My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless" remains the craziest album of the 90s. This electric monument in the form of a wall of sound was a product of Kevin Shields' deranged mind. It turned the history of rock upside down and remains a major source of inspiration for many musicians from all walks of life.

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. However, each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.
