With each Black Marble album, Chris Stewart's music has gotten warmer and nearer to his listeners. On It's Immaterial, his melodies grew bigger and sweeter while holding onto the quintessential aloofness of his coldwave and synth-pop influences. The gradual thaw of Black Marble's music quickens on Bigger Than Life, Stewart's Sacred Bones debut. Where his previous album was literally a departure -- he wrote it in Brooklyn while planning his escape to Los Angeles -- this one is an arrival that celebrates his new life in the City of Angels. Since Stewart wrote and recorded all of the album on his own, it could have easily sounded cloistered, but there's a feeling of reaching out on Bigger Than Life that makes it special within Black Marble's body of work. As a singer and musician, Stewart sounds more confident and more vulnerable than ever. Without the security blankets of echo and reverb that cloaked his vocals on his previous releases, his voice rings out when he sings "I'm just living more" on the title track and on "Call," the album's closing wish for intimacy. There's a greater clarity to Bigger Than Life's sound as well, relatively speaking -- on songs like "Daily Driver," the hazy twinkle of his analog synths calls to mind sunbeams fighting their way through smog and glass. Stewart also brings his audience closer with bittersweet, deceptively simple songwriting. On the standout "One Eye Open," the story of a restless tightrope walker echoes the way Stewart teeters between intimacy and distance throughout the album. Similarly, "Grey Eyeliner" plays like a Craigslist missed connection set to song, hovering between mystery and approachability with a lilt that recalls the Magnetic Fields. Stewart is at the peak of his powers on "Feels," where the oddly poignant hook "I used to have a radio show" expresses the need for connection that makes up the heart of Bigger Than Life. His choice to reveal more and explore a feeling of belonging instead of sticking with the trope of the tortured, isolated artiste is one that pays off richly: With its surprising warmth and immediacy, Bigger Than Life is some of Black Marble's most affecting music. ~ Heather Phares

Obbiettivo la luna: The Dark Side Of The Moon

The Dark Side of the Moon, album-chiave dei Pink Floyd fu il risultato di un lungo processo creativo iniziato intorno al 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (il brano principale dell'omonimo album) fu, almeno per Nick Mason, il punto di partenza. L'album successivo, Ummagumma (1969), diede a ciascun membro della band l'opportunità di creare un brano solista, anche se avrebbero dovuto unire i loro talenti per fare davvero il jackpot. I Pink Floyd hanno continuato a cercare il disco perfetto con Meddle, un album che ha messo in evidenza le loro abilità in studio, e Atom Heart Mother, prima del tanto atteso nirvana con The Dark Side of the Moon. E la perfezione di quest'opera non è stata intaccata nel tempo, nemmeno a quarantacinque anni dalla sua uscita.

Neoclassica: un nuovo mondo ai confini dell’elettronica e della classica

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Da qualche anno tutti questi nomi alla moda sono stati raggruppati sotto la vasta ed eterogenea etichetta “neoclassica”. A dire il vero, questo “panorama” somiglia piuttosto ad una banda eterogenea di artisti indagatori, che mescolano strumenti classici e produzione elettronica – in connessione cosciente con i pionieri del minimalismo americano – che deliziano i sensi ed aprono nuove prospettive da entrambi i lati del loro spettro musicale.

Il reggae alla conquista del pop americano

Il reggae non era mai stato così in vista dai tempi di Bob Marley. Negli ultimi tre anni, le hit delle pop star americane si sono arricchite di sapori giamaicani. Da Beyonce a Rihanna, passando per Drake o Justin Bieber, sono sempre di più i cantanti che usano accompagnamenti e musiche dancehall, la versione «elegante» del reggae, resa popolare dal leggendario produttore King Jammy alla metà degli anni 80 con lo Sleng Teng, il primo reggae elettronico della storia. Una conquista praticata con guanti di velluto: ecco com’è andata.
