A Swedish take on Leonard Cohen: why not? A few months after the death of the titanic artist on 7 November 2016, the sisters Söderberg, Johanna and Klara, aka First Aid Kit, gave two performances at the Royal Dramatic Theater in Stockholm to pay tribute to him. It must be said that the two Swedes have always had a passion for covers, and their career was launched by their rereading of Tiger Mountain Peasant Song by the Fleet Foxes in 2008, when they were only fifteen and eighteen years old respectively. This performance opened their path to success, a deal with a label and a first album. The latter, which they wrote themselves, attracted a fair bit of attention when it was released in 2010. They have not forgotten their taste for covers and in that same year they were invited by Jack White himself to his studios to record their versions of a few songs, including Universal Soldier by Buffy Sainte-Marie and It Hurts Me Too by Mel London and Tampa Red. The result was a record produced by White and released on his Third Man Records label. In 2011, at the Polar Music Awards gala in Stockholm, they performed Dancing Barefoot in front of that year's winner, Patti Smith. Smith was moved to tears to see that cover of one of her songs... Other covers followed, including a moving version of America by Simon & Garfunkel on the set of David Letterman's Late Show in 2015, and covers of pieces by Bob Dylan when he won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016. So it should be clear: covers come as second nature to First Aid Kit. This 2017 concert is more than just a tribute: it is a celebration of Leonard Cohen, with more than twenty of his best-known songs. Note that the two Swedes are not alone on stage. They are joined by a long delegation of musicians and friends from the great family of contemporary Swedish music, from Loney Dear to Jesper Lindell or Maja Francis, but also actresses, including Maia Hansson Bergqvist, famous for her role in David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (on a spellbinding You Want It Darker). Also present at their side are a string section and a choir of twenty people... The talent of First Aid Kit is to offer something unique of their own every time, appropriating the songs with variations and changes in arrangements, moving away from the original version to make their performance an experience rather than a simple cover. To begin with, their vocal tone is far removed from the late singer's dark voice. Some purists will probably not like this way of doing things, and others will welcome this change. In their deconstructions of Everybody Knows or The Future, the latter becomes unrecognisable. More classical covers follow, of Chelsea Hotel #2 with Jesper Lindell, or of the monumental, the legendary Hallelujah. In the end, a sincere love letter, exotic and not lacking in charm. Leonard Cohen would surely have approved. © Yan Céh / Qobuz

Metallica, the Path to Glory

Having sold 125 million albums across the globe, including some 30 million copies of their “Black Album”, Metallica is among the unlikeliest of pop sensations to come out of the last half-century. So how did a heavy metal band with such a convoluted song structure end up on par with music from the likes of Madonna and Michael Jackson? By following their instincts and sheer determination. Let’s return to the roots of the most famous heavy metal band in history.

Joni Mitchell: the Blue Period

An immaculate masterpiece of 70's folk, 'Blue' celebrates its 50th birthday this year. And it hasn't aged a day. But why are artists the world over still so fascinated by this fourth, intimate album by the Canadian singer-songwriter?
