Two and half years after the release of his masterpiece Carrie & Lowell, Sufjan Stevens offers a follow-up consisting of alternative takes, remixes and demos. Centred around the death of his mother in a resolutely folk mood, the American songwriter returns to a sort of source on this record which he tries here to rub out in order to take things forward into slightly more experimental and electronic territory. The exercise is sometimes a little redundant (like on Death With Dignity whose Helado Negro Remix does away with the original’s virginal beauty) and at other times really quite stunning (with a new lease of life for Exploding Whale thanks to the Doveman Remix). Those left cold or frustrated by the remixes will still stumble across the unreleased song Wallowa Lake Monster. Ultimately, Greatest Gift is fundamentally for Sufjan Stevens fans or completists. © MD/Qobuz

Norah Jones in 10 Songs

Even though her albums are released on jazz label Blue Note, Norah Jones’s music has never simply been jazz, just as it has never solely been pop, nor folk, country or soul… Since the early noughties, the American singer and pianist has embraced many styles, often breaking norms in pursuit of her own unique sound, a sound she loves to share through collaborations with different musicians of diverse origin and style. Discover the world of Norah Jones in 10 songs.

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.

Daniel Johnston, A Troubling, Troubled Icon

No one ever sounded like Daniel Johnston. The little known depressive artist found fame thanks to his peers’ recognition. He passed away on September 11th, 2019, at the age of 58; his discography has slowly become the symbol of naïve, lo-fi and hyper-emotional music. It’s never too late to (re)discover this bona fide underground genius, and his heartfelt, authentic music.
