Every bit as refreshing and even more insightful than her debut, Norwegian pop star Sigrid delivers another near-flawless effort with her sophomore album, How to Let Go. Coming of age with a platinum LP and a handful of hit singles in the rearview, the growing artist opts for the positive, affirmative route with the songs on How to Let Go, which merges shimmering dance-pop gems and arena-sized midtempo ballads. Just 25 years old at the time of release, Sigrid displays a wisdom and confidence beyond her age, packing an abundance of journal-cover quotables that makes it near impossible not to feel uplifted and motivated to live one's best life. This is not to say that How to Let Go is schmaltzy fluff. Rather, she goes beyond just spinning the negative into a positive, learning from the tougher experiences in life and making the best of it all. On the Sia-meets-Natasha Bedingfield throwback "Risk of Getting Hurt," she declares, "It's just not a thing worth doing/if there's no risk of getting hurt," while the KT Tunstall-esque "It Gets Dark" soars with anthemic guitars as Sigrid proclaims, "It gets dark/so I can see the stars." The strong messages continue throughout. "Bad Life," an earnest duet with Bring Me the Horizon's Oli Sykes, pulls listeners out of whatever funk they might be in with the refrain, "It's just a bad day, not a bad life." Meanwhile, she inspires the heartbroken to move on with heads held high on the pulsing "Thank Me Later" ("Let it go/cause when you know you know") and encourages self-confidence on the deep electric groover "Mirror" ("Just fell in love with the person in the mirror"). That latter track is one of a handful of infectious disco-revival moments on par with the sounds of Dua Lipa, Miley Cyrus, and Kylie Minogue circa 2020, opening up the dancefloor with additional synth-heavy highlights like the shiny, glitter-blasted anthem "Burning Bridges" and the breezy "A Driver Saved My Life," which shimmers atop handclaps and swirling electro-groove. On the contemplative side, Sigrid's vocals shine on the moving "Last to Know," the clever soft rock breakup tune "Mistake Like You," and the tender, Coldplay-channeling acoustic standout "Grow." She opts to close the set with the aptly titled "High Note," a stirring declaration of purpose that drops a shiver-inducing key change to maximum effect. Hearing the jump from Sucker Punch's youthful, innocent pop nuggets to this confident and mature statement is an inspiration in itself, simply because it's so heartwarming to witness her artistic growth. But taken just at face value, How to Let Go is an album that a more established act would be proud to call their own.

Tropicália: the Story of a Brazilian Revolution

In the late 1960s, a group of young Brazilian artists rose up against the ruling military junta by fusing local popular music, rock and avant-garde. Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes and their friends invented tropicália, one of the most original musical adventures of the 20th century.

Hip-Hop: 8 Legendary Producers

Can we imagine Guru without DJ Premier and De La Soul without Prince Paul? Behind every iconic rapper and cult group, there is a visionary producer who learned from his predecessors and developed his own sound. From the pioneer Marley Marl, who laid the foundations for modern production by showing what could be done with the first samples, to the shooting star J Dilla who, before his death at the age of 32, managed to leave a lasting mark on the genre, not to forget Bomb Squad’s sonic revolution and Dr Dre’s undisputed dominance on the West Coast. Here’s an overview of the studio masters that have ruled the hip-hop world for thirty years.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.
