Following on from Helter Seltzer (2016), it’s the sixth studio album from We Are Scientists and the duo are still having as much fun as ever before. Megaplex is a flamboyant indie pop record that merges 80’s synths with distorted guitar chords, drawing listeners to compare them to sounds we associate with groups like the Naked & Famous. The vocal lines are at times banal, but still hold weight as they ring over the accompaniment, with the New Yorkers tacking us on a sonic adventure over the 31 minutes of music. The LP boasts a strong opening with One In One Out, with a catchy synth lead and a chorus that will be engraved in your brain after a single listen. The 9 other tracks move from 80’s influenced tunes, like on Heart Is A Weapon, to classic indie rock sounds with Now or Never. It’s without doubt a playful record that is bright, snappy, and will get you up off your feet. It’s a credit to the duo that they are six albums in and are still having as much fun as their early years (Safety, Fun & Learning, 2002). An infectious record, here’s hoping they keep the good times coming! © Aidan Nickerson/ Qobuz

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. Though each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.
