Defying easy definitions, Houston's Khruangbin (Thai for "airplane," or more literally, "engine fly") soar through influences as diverse as Thai pop, Morricone westerns, dub reggae and surf guitar with a constant undercurrent of 70s American soul. The result is an original hybrid awash in cutting edge psychedelia and atmospheric in the extreme—otherworldly instrumental "world" music expertly alloyed by the considerable talents of Laura Lee (bass), Mark Speer (guitar) and Donald "DJ" Johnson (drums). Their artistry lies in being an incredibly tight band making music that sounds loose and jammy.

And until now, the only voices heard on their records were repeated individual words, random conversational snippets and Lee’s soaring wordless vocals. Enter fellow Texan Leon Bridges, the guitarist and retro soul singer who shares Khruangbin's defining impulse to seek new horizons.

Bridges’ well-recorded, confident vocals are front and center in a broad and detailed sonic image, adding welcome new energy to the band’s usual chill moodiness. The closing refrains of the ballad "Conversion" has more than a whiff of Stevie Wonder and he lays his smooth vocals over a repeated, gentle guitar figure on "Midnight." A heavier, more full steam groove powers the EP's standout track, "C-Side," where Johnson’s synthesizer provides body and Chase Jordan's vibes add a piquant touch. This is a low key but promising collaboration that begs the question, why just an EP? © Robert Baird / Qobuz

Erased Tapes, a Not-so-classic Label

Since its birth in 2007, Erased Tapes has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative labels of the last 15 years and enjoyed great commercial success. Although some fail to see past its neoclassical shopfront (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), the London-based label explores the outer limits of ambient, electronica and experimental with a catalogue that's smoothly curated by the German Robert Raths. Qobuz takes a closer look.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.

Iggy and the Stooges: The Dawn of Punk

In 1969, a group of self-confessed cretins dynamited rock'n'roll with a charge of distortion and nihilistic lyrics. At the head of these Stooges was Iggy Pop, a sort of obsessive, rebellious Nijinsky, who was destined to become the Godfather of punk rock.
