Following touring in support of a 2015 debut album that blended the hazy textures of dream pop with a buoyant, anthemic pop, Philadelphia's Cheerleader went on an indefinite hiatus. Founding member Chris Duran parted ways with the group, and though bandleader Joe Haller began writing songs again in time, he did so for himself without any intention of them serving Cheerleader. However, he eventually did present some of the darker, more reflective material to bandmates, who ultimately embraced the not-so-subtle tonal shift. Recorded with producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Foals), the resulting Almost Forever is a spaced-out, psychedelic outing that still puts a premium on glistening atmospheres but moves them into a more introspective setting. Beginning with a crash and a wistful verse involving pretending, altered states, and dreams, "Flight Tonight" sets the stage with a Lennon-esque melancholia and trippy soundscape built from ringing guitars, vintage synth and organ timbres, and fluttery effects. Its restrained melody and floaty feel are soon contrasted by the livelier "Domestica," which continues to reside in fluid, echoing atmospheres. Elsewhere, "Non-Stop Flight" ventures into bass-driven post-punk, "Chimera" buries vocals in effects amidst a swirl of Cure-like synth rhapsody, and "Things We Regret" approaches a more-refined '80s pop, if one that maintains reflective surfaces. Sharing some of the opener's ghostly noise effects, closer "All That's Left" bookends the album with another spacy narrative concerned with dreaming and regret, though it seems to drop off listeners at a station somewhere in space, far removed from the opener's airport. Along the way, catchy entries like "Everyone's Wearing Skin" and "Providence" provide lasting mementos from the journey. ~ Marcy Donelson

Warp, 30 Years of Groundbreaking Music

Warp, the record label which led to the blossoming of some of the most boundary-pushing artists of the electronic music scene, such as Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre, and Squarepusher, now has their catalogue available on Qobuz. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the history of Britain’s best-respected independent label.

Iggy and the Stooges: The Dawn of Punk

In 1969, a group of self-confessed cretins dynamited rock'n'roll with a charge of distortion and nihilistic lyrics. At the head of these Stooges was Iggy Pop, a sort of obsessive, rebellious Nijinsky, who was destined to become the Godfather of punk rock.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.
