Whether Neurotica is where Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain and The Replacements' Paul Westerberg got the idea that it was cool to take punk rock into poppier territory is still up for debate. But there’s no question that the second album by the brothers McDonald is a toothsome, energetic mashup of guitar crunch and accessible melodic turns that embodied a new sound when it appeared in 1987. With Hawthorne, California, teenagers Jeff on guitar and vocals and Steven on bass out front, they began as The Tourists in 1978, before changing their name to Red Cross a year later. A lawsuit from the actual humanitarian organization forced a name change to Redd Kross which is what appeared on their 1982 debut Born Innocent, recorded before they were even out of high school.

Throughout the majority of her time as vocalist and frontperson for D.C. art punk band Priests, Katie Alice Greer was also working on far more experimental solo material. When her solo tracks, one-off collaborations with other artists, or EP releases cropped up occasionally, they often took the form of harsh, overblown electronics or slow-moving noise, a wildly different approach than the relatively straightforward, guitar-heavy bombast of her main band. When Priests dissolved in late 2019, Greer relocated from D.C. to L.A. right at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on solo work that would expand on the experimental spirit that incubated on those earlier releases.

Gaby Moreno is an L.A.-based, Guatemala-born singer, songwriter, and producer. After a wide-ranging handful of solo albums full of music that cuts across Latin and European traditions, blues, show tunes, country, and rock, she issued ¡Spangled! in 2019, a widely celebrated multilingual collaboration with composer/arranger Van Dyke Parks. It comprised songs from the three Americas, celebrating possibilities, perceptions, and cultural as well as economic roadblocks. The self-produced Alegoría offers a commanding lyrical palette no less authoritative and edifying. Moreno wrote these songs during the pandemic. Sung in English and Spanish, they reflect themes of desolation, nostalgia, hope, and love. She recorded them with a cast of her favorite session players.

Taneyev was a pupil of Tchaikovsky and a teacher of Rachmaninov and Scriabin. During his lifetime his chamber music was widely considered on a par with that of the great Viennese masters. The String Trio in E-flat major, originally scored for violin, viola and the rarely-heard tenor viola, is a mature work with echoes of Mozart and Beethoven. The Piano Quartet in E major is a large-scale, passionate work, sonorous and melodic, with a transfiguring beauty. It has always retained an honoured place in the Russian chamber repertoire.

Dussek led a restless life, travelling Europe as a keyboard virtuoso and settling in several European capitals, notably Paris and London, where he became a fashionable pianist and teacher. His close connection to piano manufacturer Broadwood resulted in important innovations, notably the extension of the keyboard to 6 octaves. Dussek’s style is rich, harmonically expressive and pianistically challenging, Classicism on the brink of Early Romanticism. Carl Friedrich Cramer writes in the “Magazin der Musik” in 1783: "These sonatas are the only ones of their kind. Rich in new thoughts and traces of the author's great musical genius. Very brilliant, and appropriate to the instrument. The accompaniment of the violin is so artificially combined with the piano part that both instruments are kept in constant attention; so that these sonatas require a violin player who is just as skilled as a piano player".

An Index of Metals est sans aucun doute l’une des plus grandes pièces du XXIème siècle. Avec cette pièce, Fausto Romitelli s’était promis de franchir un seuil. C’est ce dont témoigne une première note d'intention démesurée, truffée de mots extrêmes : rave party, messe des sens, limites de la perception, transe, rite initiatique, capture, immersion, assassinat.

An unapologetic ode to the audacity and playful cynicism of growing up, After The Head Rush emerges like the shadow of a sundial cast between two time zones - one in the past, and one in the present. Infused with belated coming-of-age wisdom it sparks the dawn of a new era - inspired by a move to his hometown and the thrill of rediscovering the music of his youth.

2021 was a big year for Jimmie Allen, who took home new artist awards from both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association, making him only the second black performer to do so at the CMAs (following Darius Rucker's win in 2009) and the first at the ACMs. There are, obviously, big expectations for his third album, Tulip Drive—the title of which, like Mercury Lane (bearing the name of the street he grew up on) and Bettie James Gold Edition (combining the names of his late grandmother and father), holds personal significance: It's the street where his grandma lived. Family and home are big influences for Allen, who tends to weave meaningful touches into his songs. "you won't be alone," a reassurance for his kids that he will always be there for them, starts with a sweet spoken message from his young son.

One of the most beautiful recordings of the St. John Passion.
Bach’s sacred music was a constant preoccupation for Michel Corboz, who recorded the main works of the Leipzig Kantor throughout his career: masses (no less than three times for the one in B minor!), cantatas, and of course oratorios including the Passions. The St. John Passion from 1977 with his fellow Lausanne ensembles feature some of the most brilliant soloists such as the inimitable Evangelist of tenor Kurt Equiluz, Felicity Palmer or Philippe Huttenlocher.
