Four years after hinting at taking a more pop-focused direction, British singer/songwriter Melanie C finally took it to the dancefloor with her declarative eighth album, Melanie C. Without missing a beat, she took inspiration from her bold collaboration with drag collective Sink the Pink -- the LGBTQ Pride anthem "High Heels" -- embracing her fun, glam side with a tight collection of empowering dance anthems and defiant, R&B-inspired moments of introspection. Arguably the most skilled singer in the Spice Girls, her earthy vocals put a distinctive stamp on these tracks, which could also perfectly serve artists like Kylie Minogue or Dua Lipa. Setting her above any standard pop fluff, her lyrics concerning personal growth and existential epiphanies add substance and depth to the set. From the outset, she declares "I've got nothing left to hide/I'm comfortable with what's inside" on the rousing "Who I Am." Atop urgent, Robyn-styled synths, she confesses "when I look in the mirror/I finally like what I see" and "I'm ready to drop my armor." To hear a much-loved public figure make such realizations 25 years into a storied career is nothing short of inspirational. The edgy club track "Blame It on Me," the tribal march of "Here I Am," and the retro-dance-funk whirlwind "Good Enough" follow in the same pumped-up motivational vein. Elsewhere, she offers some time to breathe on moments like the woozy, mantra-packed "Escape" and the atmospheric yet ominous "Nowhere to Run." When Melanie C isn't encouraging self-confidence through personal reflection, she turns her gaze outward, bolstering self-worth and standing tall in the face of critics and detractors on the disco-funked "Overload," the sparkling "In and Out of Love," and the slinky, jazzed-up duet with English rapper Nadia Rose, "Fearless." Even on the moving closer, "End of Everything," she manages to spin a harrowing turning point into an opportunity for strength, delivering the strongest vocals on the album as she steps out on her own with head held high. It's a wonder how it took this long for her to make such an unabashed pop album and, with the addition of her emotional insight, her catalog is all the better for it. Relatable and reinvigorated, the catchy and confessional Melanie C is not only a reboot for the artist's sound, but a rebirth for the icon herself.

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.

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.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
