Time Machine

What political and cultural mystery explains the disco revival in 2020 mainstream pop? Chance is never a mystery, and future reviewers will probably see it more clearly than we do; in the meantime, we are excited about the squadron of bass drums, wah-wah riffs and Philly Sound strings in avalanches (re) launched by wannabe divas like Jessie Ware ("What's Your Pleasure?")."), Dua Lipa ("Future Nostalgia"), Katy Perry ("Smile") and soon Kylie ... read more

On the Sunny Side of the Ocean: Blind Joe Death's Ultimate Epiphany

Welcome, dear readers, don't forget to take off your shoes when you come in, leave your headgear at the door because here you are in the presence of the greatest John Fahey record that no one has ever heard of... At least until 1997. "What do you mean?" you'll answer me, connoisseurs of the blues that you are, "everybody knows that this is one of the most popular Big John albums!" And you're right to point ... read more

CFCE 87.8 FM Weekly Genre: Progressive Rock

*Zero the hero, for the last volume of his adventures, was getting too big for his britches....*

Time has passed since the joyful nonchalance of "Camembert Électrique". The Radio Gnome trilogy, the majestic french prog-rock project, both ambitious and uninhibited in its delirium, ends with this "You", more "space" than ever. But the stakes are far more complex than the simple making of an album; it is the last ... read more

Fahey in the Deep South: the land of the Blues that sweats, suffers... and dies.

1964 provides a breath of fresh air for John Aloysius Fahey. Freed from Berkeley, its degenerate hippies and the philosophy curriculum he didn't really like, he is invited to attend a university program about folklore, which leads him to move to the south of Los Angeles (he published his thesis on the bluesman Charley Patton a few years later). There, he made a few friends with whom he shares interests in the ... read more

An interminable night; a filthy, secret, downtown church with ancient architecture tarnished by time; a stale air; a heavy silence, only interrupted by the advance of insects approaching the place of worship; an echo of the future warning of the horrors to come in an enigmatic way, with blurred feminine features; an infection that spreads malignantly among the people capitulating in the temple; the most haunting fear there is : that of being afraid, of not seeing anything clearly hostile and ... read more

Merci beaucoup pour ces mots Math, c’est vraiment touchant ! C’est une étape symbolique que je n aurais pas pu atteindre sans des personnes comme toi qui m’ont soutenus dès le départ, je n oublierai jamais car ça m’a permis de me lancer à fond dans ma passion! Je te suis donc très reconnaissant
Et que dire de tous ces magnifiques albums et ses artistes qui nous font tous vibrer, c’est une passion commune et des échanges qui me donnent l envie d écrire ! En espérant un jour te rencontrer en vrai afin de pouvoir discuter de tout ça et de pouvoir continuer à bosser sur des projets communs ! Merci à nouveau <3

I'm trying to put together a list of scary album covers for a youtube video, and I'm needing some recommendations for this list - what are some scary (unnerving, gross, uncanny) album covers you've seen? Your recommendations will be credited in the video btw. Thanks in advance!

Hello, I have just released my second single this week called "Panacea" and I would be happy if you would give it a chance and tell me what you think about it, it might be just a simple rating.
If you haven't listened to my previous single Exosphere, you can do it sooner or later if you want:) They probably sound best on headphones but it is your decision how you will listen to them. Thanks^.^

Hello! I recently came up with the idea to make a small blog (site) like Pitchfork and etc for several selected people from AOTY (and not only) to share their reviews and opinions. Do you support this idea and are you interested in it?
