Still driven by original members Daniel Ágúst Haraldsson, Birgir Þórarinsson, and Stephan Stephensen, along with relative newcomer Högni Egilsson, GusGus continue to refine their song-oriented approach on Mexico, their third album for Kompakt. More direct than 2011's Arabian Horse, one of the Cologne label's top sellers of the late 2000s and early 2010s, Mexico plays it straight throughout. All but one selection -- the tugging, gnashing title track, far from a breather amid the album's succession of emotive voices -- is a full-blown song. Just over half the tracks are merely well-produced, enjoyable if not all that stimulating, while others deal knockout blows. Above all others, the ecstatic "Another Life" ("I'm in a daze from your love") is one of the group's best all-time productions, where strings dart around bass drums and hi-hats arranged for a brilliant clamp-and-stomp effect. The immaculate "Airwaves" is an unabashedly festival-ready trance-pop monster that builds momentum in subtle fashion. Taut drums, sparkling synthesizers, and a sweetly spaced-out falsetto chorus make the electro-R&B of "God-Application" as dizzying as anything from Luomo's The Present Lover. Finale "This Is What You Get When You Mess with Love," the only song that doesn't fall within the five- to six-minute range, is lonesome, subdued shuffletech that would fit on a third volume of Kompakt's long-dormant Schaffelfieber compilation series. When GusGus joined Kompakt, the association seemed odd -- almost charitable on the label's part -- but now it makes total sense.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.

Kraftwerk, 50 Years Ahead of Their Time

Kraftwerk, the most influential electro group in history, founded by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, who died of cancer on May 6, 2020, have always been ahead of their time. Ahead of technology, composition and stage performance, the Germans proved to the public that robots were also capable of emotion and paved the way for techno, new wave and even hip-hop.

New Order: From Darkness to Dance-floor

How does one Mancunian group move from perhaps the gloomiest band of the punk era to a master of the dance-floor? In the early eighties, straight out of Joy Division’s ashes, New Order marked one of the first successful unions of rock’n’roll and dance music. A perfect soundtrack for a morose, Thatcherite England.
