The snow in New York City falls in a fugue. A light dust, barely perceptible, begins the progression, growing in quantity and consistency as winds pick up over the waterways. […]
In the voluminous chambers of the Knockdown Center, there is no hope for any physical contribution filling the vacuum between the walls. As Britt Daniel found when he visited us […]
Quelques jours avant le début de leur longue tournée française, on vous offre une troisième vidéo bonus du Concert à Emporter de St Paul & The Broken Bones tourné en mai dernier.
There’s something preternatural in finding oneself practically alone in a museum. You don’t see the artwork the same way. You take more time to look at them, to analyze them. […]
It was a recurrent topic with the Staves. They had this desire, almost an obsession, to give to their music a heavier, deeper sound. They were seeking to distance themselves […]
A month ago, these two tracks would have had a different echo. We would have seen them just for what they were : two songs from an album – the […]
I could have turned off my television and the constant flow of horrific and nerve-racking images that goes with it, and scream “I don’t give a shit, I’m gonna go […]
The Chapelle des Beaux-Art de Paris. The tortuous and deconstructed pop of Alt-J. The stars aligned.
Addiction is generally a bad thing, except in music. It was, by the way, this process of immediate dependence that started when I saw The Districts onstage for the first […]

We decided to pay homage to the Blue Note label. Here’s the result.
Hundreds of steps lead to our position, a concise visual icon of contrapuntal activity leading to vertical arrangement, voice set on voice set on voice in the elegant harmonies of […]
Efterklang, with a philharmonic orchestra, a choir, guests, unreleased tracks… It all makes for an exceptional concert given by the Danish band last February. Vincent Moon was on center stage with them. Today, we present to you the film that resulted from this unique event.
Soul singer is a full-time job. With its little rituals, its necessary discipline: warming up your voice, grasping a new terry towel and lowering your head before entering the stage, […]
In the life of a musician in New York, to have found some modest success in your field is to be perpetually absent from the city you spend such labors […]
Picture a gigantic warehouse; above you the ceiling reaches excessive heights, below you the ground is still soaked from the hundreds of ice-filled polystyrene crates that were there just hours […]
Treasure Island sits halfway between two very different cities, San Francisco and Oakland, in San Francisco Bay. It’s got a fairy tale name and offers gorgeous views of the city, […]
