Sometimes the best Fall songs don't land on Fall albums, as this 2016 EP proves. The title cut of Wise Ol' Man is an instant Fall classic. It throbs and snarls with a sense of purpose that sticks in the head, thanks to Elena Poulou and the sweet, yet stern, chorus she delivers. "All Leave Canceled" is one of those sprawling epics from the group that entrances the whole way through, and there's the new-meets-old medley of "Facebook Troll/No Xmas for John Quays," a gift for fans and a fierce, captured-in-the-studio example of what the on-stage Fall can do with old tunes. Add remixes and instrumentals and this short set gets knocked down a peg, but it's a classic EP in its own way, jumbling brilliance with clearing-house stuff, and ending up a desirable package, instrumental and all. ~ David Jeffries

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.

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.
