There’s no shortage of pop albums that explore the theme of self-acceptance. The Gods That We Can Touch sees singer Aurora boldly bring her own ideas to this overcrowded table, doing so through the prism of Greek mythology. “Long ago, when the concept of gods and goddesses began, they were more human, almost palpable. Most importantly, they had flaws”, says the Norwegian singer who is often compared to Björk and Kate Bush. Aurora recorded the album with her usual producer, Magnus Skylstad, and it features guitarist Fredrik Svabø, pianist Askjell Solstrand, and bandonionist Per Arne Glorvigen. She also sings a duet with French singer Pomme on the track Everything Matters. Aurora’s celestial voice paired with the melancholic melodies perfectly encapsulate the album’s theme. The singer’s somewhat Baroque-style wistfulness (Artemis, This Could Be A Dream, Exhale Inhale as well as Blood In The Wine, which seems to be at least partially inspired by Morricone’s work) often gives way to a dance, even a club vibe (The Innocent, Giving In To The Love, A Temporary High and Cure For Me, with the latter nodding to the famous accompaniment of Aquarela do Brazil). Aurora’s “human gods” are sensitive, mysterious and jovial, and her third album is a shrine dedicated to their unique and secretive nature. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

1972: The Album’s Golden Year

1972 was a monumental year for albums. From the The Rolling Stones to Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin to Big Star, there was an abundance of artists releasing career-defining and redefining music. Here we make our case for ten of the best.

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.

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.
