Blake Mills earned a reputation as producer and guitarist who prized authenticity in his work, which is what makes his 2018 album Look so startling. Consisting of five tracks of wordless, formless ambient music, Look is essentially a process album. Mills recorded the brief album -- at 25 minutes, it could conceivably be called an EP -- while learning how to play a bunch of vintage Roland guitar synthesizers, which explains why Look is amorphous and adventurous; the music keeps shifting shapes thanks to the new discoveries Mills made while recording the album. If Look doesn't quite reward close listening, it nevertheless provides exquisite background listening: the moods and textures shift slowly and seamlessly, providing a sense of forward motion, yet never quite straying from the spacy, slightly spooky, mood Mills establishes at the outset.

Kraftwerk, 50 Years Ahead of Their Time

Kraftwerk, the most influential electro group in history, founded by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, who died of cancer on May 6, 2020, have always been ahead of their time. Ahead of technology, composition and stage performance, the Germans proved to the public that robots were also capable of emotion and paved the way for techno, new wave and even hip-hop.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.
