Noel Gallagher

Of the Oasis brothers, I’ve always preferred Noel to Liam.

Noel’s High Flying Birds continues to prove that he was the creative force of Oasis.

Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot, the Russian punk political collective, deliver a deceptively sweet sounding song with an ominous message.

Released on the anniversary of Trump’s electoral victory, “Police State” is self-explanatory.

Charlotte Gainsbourg

Charlotte Gainsbourg is one of those rare artists whose career is primarily in film but is also a successful musician. (Zooey Deschanel and Jared Leto come to mind.)

Many movie stars dabble but so few create substantive music.

Rest is Gainsbourg’s stunning 5th album.

“Deadly Valentine”

“Deadly Valentine” (Soulwax Remix)

Nilüfer Yanya

I’ve been hypnotized of late by the song “Baby Luv” by Nilüfer Yanya.

Trusting that this 22-year old Londoner will continue to enthrall.

Awaken I Am

Awaken I Am, a rock quintet out of Australia, recently released their album Blind Love.

The song “Black Dreams” soars with melodic power.
