Crave is the debut of French musician Léonie Pernet, who spent ten years as a touring bandmember, DJ, arranger, film composer, and emerging solo artist before endeavoring to write and produce her first full album. While a prior EP previewed the deadpan vocal delivery and experimental edge to Pernet's atmospheric indie electronica -- then centered around electronic keyboards, piano, and live rock drums -- Crave relies on danceable beats and reveals a more cinematic and cosmopolitan synth pop. To the latter point, English, French, and Arabic are on the album, which includes songs titles like "African Melancholia" and "Auaati." The latter features rumbling synth bass, atmospheric keys, hand percussion, and Arabic psalms sung by Rikk Hanaa Ouassim. Pernet handles most of the rest of the album's vocals, at least the lead ones, but further borrows lyrics from the poetry of François de Malherbe ("Rose") and from Marguerite Duras on a cover of Carlos d'Alessio's "India Song," from Duras' 1975 film of the same name. Tracks like "Butterfly" and "Nancy" present a more straightforward, post-punk-flavored album core. A onetime touring percussionist for Yuksek, Pernet's arrangements highlight rhythm and textured percussion in addition to programmed drums, which all contribute to the Crave's off-balance, anxious tone. The album is nocturnal and sometimes confrontational but has the intangible coolness of many of Pernet's French film idol inspirations, making for an intriguing debut. ~ Marcy Donelson

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.

Marc Ribot, the anti-guitar hero

For thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

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. But a decade on from "Seven Nation Army", the genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. And while we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.
