If Lana Del Rey’s 2021 album Chemtrails Over the Country Club felt like the atmospheric post-script to her 2019 master statement Norman Fucking Rockwell!, Blue Banisters comes off like the addendum to the post-script. Released just seventh months after its predecessor, Blue Banisters isn’t too far removed from the midtempo, woozy tones that defined that album.

On her big-league debut, Billie Eilish makes a bold entrance into the mainstream, leaving the fringes behind to embrace her role as an anti-pop star for the disaffected Gen Z masses. With a youthful, hybrid blend that incorporates elements of indie electronic, pop, and hip-hop (assisted by brother Finneas O’Connell), When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? captures the late-2010s zeitgeist by throwing conventional boundaries to the wind and fully committing to its genre-blurring self.

A subtle triumph in the face of overwhelming pressure and expectations, Happier Than Ever is the sound of an artist coming into their own. Without losing any of the experimental, genre-blurring spirit of her Grammy-conquering debut, Billie Eilish elevates her trademark sound and expands her scope with the assistance of her producer-brother Finneas.

Rod Stewart didn’t devote his new millennium solely to the Great American Songbook — he dallied with classic rock and soul — but it sure felt that way, with Rod delivering five collections of standards in just under a decade.

In 1975, Munich was quickly becoming one of Europe’s top cities for disco. That year, the Giorgio Moroder/Pete Bellotte team produced Donna Summer’s breakthrough hit “Love to Love You, Baby” in Munich, and it was also in 1975 that the Munich-based Silver Convention Continue reading “Silver Convention – Save Me (1975) [2014, Remastered]”

When Daft Punk announced they were releasing a new album eight years after 2005’s Human After All, fans were starved for new material. The Tron: Legacy score indulged the duo’s sci-fi fantasies but didn’t offer much in the way of catchy songs, so when Random Access Memories’ extensive publicity campaign featured tantalizing clips of a new single, “Get Lucky,” their fan base exploded.

Four long years after their debut, Homework, Daft Punk returned with a second full-length, also packed with excellent productions and many of the obligatory nods to the duo’s favorite stylistic speed bumps of the 1970s and ’80s. Discovery is by no means the same record, though. Continue reading “Daft Punk – Discovery (2001) [2014 Japanese Limited Edition]”
