A first album that served as an uppercut to the chin. A second one that felt like a knee to the groin. And for their third album, Metz aren’t yet considering being kind or tender… The hard-core trio from Ottawa remain an impressive concentrate of rock’n’roll violence. In the spirit of the relentless and binary hard-core rock imagined in the 90s by Nirvana (in Territorial Pissings), Shellac and, most importantly, Jesus Lizard, Metz always go straight to the point. With concise compositions. Extreme and pure guitar riffs. And ruthless and extremely tight rhythms… Leaning against their beautiful wall of brutal and ferocious sound, Alex Edkins, Hayden Menzies and Chris Slorach have entrusted the production of Strange Peace to one of their idols: Steve Albini. While the acoustic violence remains intact, the three Canadian terrorists introduce a few more melodies under their electric tsunami. Furthermore Metz are also leaning towards PIL’s depressive post-punk (obvious on Sink and Caterpillar). All in all, despite some slight course changes, the listener comes out of this severe beating with the same warning message as for the first two albums: not suitable for the faint hearted, get the women and children to shelters! © MZ/Qobuz

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.

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.
