Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Souvenir is an extensive anthology that inevitably appeals more to collectors than to casual listeners. Discs one and two of the physical box set gather the singles dating back to the Dindisc version of "Electricity," one of the most bracing post-punk-era debuts -- much more so than the amateur Kraftwerk thievery OMD have claimed it to be -- through the fresh "Don't Go," perhaps the sharpest A-side of Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys' admirable second run. (The singles portion was also spun off separately as triple-vinyl and double-CD editions under the same title.) The third disc is a set of previously unreleased material consisting primarily of experiments and incomplete songs. McCluskey says they were wise to abandon and shelve it all, with only the circa 1990 "Flamenco" retroactively judged worthy of B-side placement. "Violin Piece" would at least be appropriate for a neo-noir film set in the early '80s, if potentially mistaken for the work of Ultravox. Over half of these excavated tracks were made from 1981-1983, making the component of special interest to those who value the more experimental aspects of Organisation, Architecture & Mortality, and Dazzle Ships. Discs four and five are live. First is a high-spirited 2011 date broadcast by BBC Radio 2 from London's Mermaid Theatre. The set list emphasizes the previous year's The History of Modern and covers a fairly broad spectrum of hits carrying into the Humphreys-less '90s. Disc five is filled to capacity with a Hammersmith Odeon gig from 1983, two months after the commercial suicide-turned-cult classic Dazzle Ships arrived to a mix of delight, bafflement, and repulsion. After six minutes of that LP's clanks, whirs, and partly spoken audio collage, they kick into the oldie "Messages" (their first of 12 Top 20 U.K. hits) with McCluskey announcing that "This is the last gig on this tour, so we don't care anymore, you know? It's just gonna be a good time." The next number is "She's Leaving," but hold on; the mood lifts and tends to remain up as they hurtle through other past favorites and most of the new stuff (minus "Genetic Engineering"), closing in terrific form with the oil-refinery ballad "Stanlow," the oddly moving conclusion of their second album. A pair of DVDs offer almost two dozen U.K. television appearances (well over half from Top of the Pops), concerts from 1981 (London) and 1985 (Sheffield), and the long-form video for the latter year's Crush. The object itself is a sturdy, neatly designed 10" case with gatefold sleeves and a hardcover book containing recording info, pictures of the duo, images of all the sleeves for the singles, and notes from McCluskey and fellow Northerner Paul Morley. There's also a stack of displayable memorabilia that you can slide out and scatter across the nearest surface.

Moby, 30 Years in Search of the Light

Moby is that rarest of artists, a songwriter who has evolved from punk to techno/house to pop, all while continuing to compose ambient music. To mark the release of Reprise, a collection of covers celebrating 30 years of songwriting, Qobuz revisits the career of an artist who has constantly kept the music world off-balance – sometimes even wrong-footing himself – before finally finding his artistic sweet-spot.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.
