According to the press materials, Bernhard Fleischmann "wants to criticize a state of mind that subordinates human beings to a logic of economic utilization." A noble sentiment, to be sure, but not the kind that necessarily leads to the production of enjoyable music -- let alone two full discs of enjoyable music. Luckily for those whose musical tastes have not yet succumbed to the dialectical imperative, Fleischmann's compositions are mainly instrumental, and for the most part they are not obtrusively political in content. The first disc is the most conventionally enjoyable of the two; its 11 tracks run the gamut from a glitchy electronica setting for a German translation of Thoreau ("02/00") to a slowly rocking and deeply harmonically weird composition for piano, guitar, and drums titled "Letter From Home" and, best of all, a little number called "Waiting for You to Come" that consists of little more than a mellow, laid-back piano overlaid with jittery, drill'n'bass drum programming. The second disc is a single, 45-minute-long track entitled "Take Your Time." This piece is almost cinematic in scope, starting out as a jumble of musique concrète, then passing through phases of country-tinged steel guitar, dubwise phase shifting, and a sort of glitch-jazz before finally turning into twisted a kind of song. Politics or no politics, this is radical music in the best sense of the term.

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.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

Fabric, a British Institution

The beating heart of the British electronic scene, label/club Fabric made a name for itself with epic nights out and legendary compilations, which have been a regular fixture in the lives of record stores and lovers of quality music since 1999. Here we take a look back at the history of a truly British institution.
