Sharon Van Etten observed a binding interplay between the experience of loss and growth over the last 24 months as our world has shared innumerable tangible and metaphorical endings and beginnings.  We've Been Going About This All Wrong, is her 10-track meditative blueprint to make sense of the connective human experience, while immersed in societal trauma, and the resulting transformations. One of Van Etten's many songwriting talents is her distillation of emotional complexity into innately resonate lyrical passages. 2010's Epic demonstrated the simple, pliable prowess of her songcraft; We've Been Going About This All Wrong is an assured extension to this. "Darkness Fades" opens with soft fingerpicking, and Van Etten's smooth, warbling melodic voice crooning for life's metaphoric night to end: "I'm dreaming of a place/ I held close in a state/ Darkness fades." Frustration and gnarly, synth-backed instrumentation fuel "Anything" and "Headspace" with anxious, innocent curiosity leaning to overwhelmed, dissociative numbing. "Come Back" longs to reconnect with a distant partner. "Darkish," an album highlight, fuses lyrical sentiment and akin sonic textures. Backed by chunked suspended guitar chords and Van Etten's solo vocal, a message of resilience resonates abound. Throughout a decade-plus career, Sharon Van Etten has offered a body of work swaddled in empathy, companionship, and vulnerability. We've Been Going About This All Wrong is a new chapter that carries a bespoke urgency embracing a strewn, beautifully messy portrait of life. This record reminds us that solace is cultivated where the gradients of light and dark revel, and where our mending hearts have the space and time they need to heal. © William Card/Qobuz

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. However, each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.
