After a short summer hiatus here are some records from the previous months that are worth checking out. Every end of the month we are releasing a round up of reviews of recent releases that touched us the most. These are the personal reviews of hand-curated gems our team dug up (and the occasional chart topper). This time including Beyoncé, Xênia França, Interpol, Maggie Rogers, Hot Chip, Julia Jacklin, Kolinga, Working Men's Club, and Ben Shemie.
In the lovely tradition of the past years we gave the task to pick the year's best music video to two true experts - Award-winning Berlin-based video artists Schall & Schnabel. They got the right eye and a year-long expertise when it comes to this art form so these 15 picks (plus two additional short films) give a great overview about the state of the art form in the year 2019. And yes, it's looking good.
Reflection time, girls and boys. As the year is heading for its final moments we take a moment to look back on the best songs of 2019. These are the fifty tunes you should definitely know before this decade ends, so hurry up and have a listen.
Consider your next party saved with this grooving and uplifting selection featuring Lizzo, Metronomy, Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, The Weeknd, Peggy Gou, Arctic Monkeys, The Chemical Brothers and more funky floorfillers.
A few weeks back, British house formation Hot Chip released their seventh studio album 'A Bath Full Of Ecstasy'. The record differs from their former works and is worth talking about - so we caught up with the band members Joe Goddard and Felix Martin.
