Originators of a dreamy, even spooky art rock that can be danceable or boldly proggy, Los Angeles's all-female Warpaint still have an undeniable energy and creative synergy, one undented by the six years since their last album. These serious musical talents look the part of rock grrls—jeans, cool guitars, attitude—but are really atmospherists, equal parts groovy dance beatmakers, prog rock drifters, and girl group flag wavers. Shoegaze and psychedelia are also major influences in the band's moody, sometimes synthy soundscapes. With the double barrel blast of guitarist-vocalists Emily Kokal and Theresa Wayman out front and a lithe, muscular rhythm section—who also sing—of bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg and drummer Stella Mozgawa behind, Warpaint brim with confidence and invention. Produced by Sam Petts-Davies who worked with the band on their 2014 debut, Radiate Like This was finished in California in early 2020 but like so many albums from the pandemic, it was massaged remotely in home studios for another year. Mixed by Davies, Ewan Pearson, and Tucker Martine, the results are more detailed than the band's past four albums, a quality especially apparent in the vocals which are more carefully layered in the choirs of "Stevie," the background choruses of the Christine McVie-influenced piano and strings exploration, "Trouble," and all the voices heard in the catchy, dancey bass-led lead track "Champion." The love song "Stevie," also showcases both the massed vocals of Kokal as well as her hilariously honest lyrical skills: "Dream lover lover/ Like no other other/ You're down and dirty/ You are one freaky mother." Warpaint's other frontperson Wayman shows off her keyboard and programming skills on "Altar." Having no obvious lead singer is a strength rather than a weakness as they prove on another love song, "Melting," as the four join together for a dynamic, three-part vocal chorus of, "I'm the gold/ You're the alchemy" and "The only way out from this cold unknowing/ is to radiate like this." Filled with songs that as Kokal says, "are about becoming honest, and owning what you're really feeling, and being vulnerable," Radiate Like This is much more interested in creating an uneasy feeling or a thought-provoking mood rather than easily identifiable melodies or hooks. This slyly potent quartet strikes again. © Robert Baird/Qobuz

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.

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.
