There’s no shortage of pop albums that explore the theme of self-acceptance. The Gods That We Can Touch sees singer Aurora boldly bring her own ideas to this overcrowded table, doing so through the prism of Greek mythology. “Long ago, when the concept of gods and goddesses began, they were more human, almost palpable. Most importantly, they had flaws”, says the Norwegian singer who is often compared to Björk and Kate Bush. Aurora recorded the album with her usual producer, Magnus Skylstad, and it features guitarist Fredrik Svabø, pianist Askjell Solstrand, and bandonionist Per Arne Glorvigen. She also sings a duet with French singer Pomme on the track Everything Matters. Aurora’s celestial voice paired with the melancholic melodies perfectly encapsulate the album’s theme. The singer’s somewhat Baroque-style wistfulness (Artemis, This Could Be A Dream, Exhale Inhale as well as Blood In The Wine, which seems to be at least partially inspired by Morricone’s work) often gives way to a dance, even a club vibe (The Innocent, Giving In To The Love, A Temporary High and Cure For Me, with the latter nodding to the famous accompaniment of Aquarela do Brazil). Aurora’s “human gods” are sensitive, mysterious and jovial, and her third album is a shrine dedicated to their unique and secretive nature. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Guns N' Roses, the greed justifies the means

As the sales of the legendary Appetite For Destruction approach the 20 million copies in the United States, who remembers today that it almost never saw the light of day? Not only the bonds uniting Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler were fragile, but fate seemed set against this band which seemed to be slow to catch on to Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella or Dokken. This is almost as a kindness that David Geffen had accepted to welcome this homeless band on his label. He would not regret his altruism…

Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.
