The Australian group Thigh Master have a perfectly cheeky name and a sometime off-kilter lyrical outlook, but they aren't a joke band. Unless you find spiky, jangly guitar pop in the vein of classic Flying Nun mixed with some (very) early Yo La Tengo and in the general ballpark of more modern bands like UV Race and Twerps to be particularly funny. Their second record, Now for Example, follows a few years after their promising debut, Early Times, and it sounds like maybe the band got a little looser, a little weirder, and fuzzy around the edges, though the songs are just as hooky and fun. Singer/songwriter Matthew Ford proves adept at crafting memorable little tunes and the words he sings detail modern everyday life in fine slackerly fashion. The crack band do a fine job bringing the sounds to life and giving them a vital zap of energy just before the tapes start rolling. The upbeat songs like "Entity" and "Mould Lines" fair jump out of the speaker with nervous energy, the classic indie rockers with tangled guitar play and shouted vocals come across like a less drastic Parquet Courts, and the couple of slower tracks show the band doesn't have to be itchy and twitchy to score points. One of them, "Claps for Clats," is a highlight; "Porto's Lullaby," which sounds almost exactly like a lost Clean classic, is another. Really, though, the entire album is a highlight reel for anyone looking to recapture the lo-fi, high pop IQ glory days of Flying Nun or anyone trying to keep up with the ever-growing wave of great guitar pop bands from Australia. Laugh at the name once to clear it out of your system, then focus on the energetic jangle, the joyous clang, and the glorious pop that the band lay down on Now for Example. ~ Tim Sendra

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.

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.

Soul Music, a nod to the past

Since the start of the Teenies, many voices have resurrected the soul from the sixties and seventies with albums recorded “the old way”. With Amy Winehouse, Leon Bridges, Sharon Jones, Michael Kiwanuka and Curtis Harding, to mention a few, the vintage groove has made a flamboyant comeback.
