The departure of Peter Koppes reduced the Church down to a core duo of Steve Kilbey and Marty Willson-Piper, though on the bright side the drum slot was finally permanently filled by Tim Powles, whose excellent playing easily matched up to Richard Ploog's best work, if not bettering it. His skill at producing and mixing, which would later prove crucial, isn't used here, but he's still off to a fine start. Best thought of as a collection of experiments and new songwriting approaches than a cohesive release like Priest = Aura, Sometime Anywhere still hits the spot more times than not, showing that the key vision of Kilbey and Willson-Piper remains strong. Kilbey's quietly compelling visions and singing remain at the heart of the group, his bass playing is as fine as ever, while Willson-Piper's guitar work contains all the fire and edge one would expect. Atmospheres, as always, are key to the Church sound, with some extremely textured and lovely keyboard sounds and buried samples adding to the mysterious flow of many of the songs. The songs that employ dance rhythms, like the murky, distorted hip-hop punch of "Lost My Touch" and Willson-Piper's charging vocal standout "Angelica," don't have the weak, johnny-come-lately feeling that bedevils rock artists dabbling around. It's not their forte, just something to work with to see what happens, and more often than not it turns out very well. Other numbers like the slow build of "My Little Problem" and the delicate then crunching, Willson-Piper-sung "Fly Home," meanwhile, shows the band still in fine overall form.

WES SIDE STORIES: The best musical moments in Wes Anderson’s films

Anderson's films can be polarizing: Charming or cloying, depending on your point of view. But if you're a fan, you no doubt appreciate the director's (and frequent collaborator, music supervisor Randall Poster's) obvious love of music—some of it as well known as Paul Simon or the frequently used Rolling Stones; some of it if-you-know-you-know cult classics.

The Beatles in 12 Albums

Barely seven years spent in the studio. An immeasurable heritage that still has a very strong influence today. The Beatles are a unique case in the history of popular music. The sixties music scene was an era of huge transition. With the Fab Four- helped by Bob Dylan on the other side of the Atlantic- rock music left its carefree adolescence and began adulthood. The four bubbly, naive boys from Liverpool would be transformed into independent artists, a life we follow through their discography.

1968/1972, The Stones’ Four Aces

Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street: in five years, the Rolling Stones sign their biggest records. Four masterworks that would shake up the history of rock ’n’ roll…
