With Fuck Buttons and as Blanck Mass, Benjamin John Power has always had a gift for channeling intense emotions with instrumentation that's often thought of as cold and clinical. In particular, his solo work for Sacred Bones uses electronics to plunge into compelling moods -- the surprising sensuality of Dumb Flesh, the outrage of World Eater, and the juxtapositions of grief, horror, and humor on Animated Violence Mild. That album title is both a warning and a promise: The violent streak in Power's music is well-known, and extremely well-represented here by "Death Drop," a lengthy assault that incorporates the relentless thrust of industrial metal's double kick drums and throat-shredding vocals and some of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's whooshing sound design into a juggernaut full of crazed intensity and deadpan wit. However, Power is just as skilled at finding the beauty in destruction, and that side of his music takes the lead on Animated Violence Mild. Huge, immediate synth melodies dominate tracks such as "House vs. House," which even adds actual verses and choruses to Blanck Mass' music with results that call to mind HEALTH's doomsday pop, and "No Dice," where crashing beats and chromatic percussion twinkle like broken glass. As on his previous albums, Animated Violence Mild showcases Power's mastery of complex combinations of sounds and moods. "Creature/West Fuqua" shifts from a deluge of synths to harp and the fractured vocal samples Power used so well on World Eater to fascinating effect; while it's the album's shortest song, it might be the most unnerving. On the standout "Love Is a Parasite," Power reimagines "Death Drop"'s fury as a club-ready banger with a lunging beat and surprisingly jaunty handclaps. He brings the album full circle with "Wings of Hate," a finale that sounds anthemic and furious in both senses of the word. In many ways, Animated Violence Mild feels like the inevitable sequel to World Eater. Where that album used the full force of Power's music to rail against the world's injustices, this one reflects the resignation, frustration, and emotional overload of its time in its startling and moving tracks. ~ Heather Phares

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 Years of Electronic Music

To celebrate his 50-year-long career, Jean-Michel Jarre has released the edifying compilation Planet Jarre, a collection of 41 tracks that highlight the path set by the pioneer of electronic music. It’s a wonderful opportunity to look back over the five decades during which the Frenchman expressed himself as an artist, a mad scientist, a visionary, a sucker for record breaking spectacles, an activist and now the torchbearer for artists struggling for fairer pay online.

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, even forty-five years after its release.

Kraftwerk, 50 Years Ahead of Their Time

Kraftwerk, the most influential electronic music group in history, have always been ahead of their time. Ahead of technology, composition, and on stage performances, the Germans proved to the public that robots were also capable of emotions and paved the way for techno, new wave and even hip-hop.
