The muses of La Musa: Jessie Ware

On her fourth studio album, Jessie Ware looked to tap into the club sounds that inspired her. The result is What’s Your Pleasure?, a musical time capsule of sorts that chronicles decades of house. This ode to the ’70s-, ’80s- and ’90s-era club sounds fuses together under the watch of collaborator James Ford to create a cohesive collection of dance-inspired tracks.

 

Divus Julius presents: Yves Jarvis

Montreal’s Yves Jarvis has announced his third album, titled Sundry Rock Song Stock. The album will be released digitally on September 25 and on vinyl on November 13. Alongside the announcement, he’s also sharing new track ‘For Props’ with its accompanying video.

On Sundry Rock Song Stock, Yves Jarvis continues to refine his creative approach to the core of his being, where music and life intertwine in harmonious fashion. His latest album fuses genre elements into a symbiotic relationship where wistful folk, tender R&B, pastoral prog, and musique concrète experiments feed into one another to grow lush new forms. Though he maintains an air of mystery with his lyrics, Jarvis’s whisper-soft words can be interpreted as both deeply personal and politically motivated in ways we haven’t heard from him before.

Best Covers: Brendon Urie “Under Pressure”

Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie joined The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon for a cover of the Queen and David Bowie classic “Under Pressure” from the safety of their homes.

Introducing…TTRRUUCES

TTRRUUCES’ debut album is a dream-like adventure, simultaneously euphoric and disorientating in both mood and execution. At its core is the story of a Sad Girl and a Lost Boy, whose quest to acquire a new drug named TTRRUUCES takes them on a mind-altering journey. The album’s sound is equally audacious. The Anglo-French duo — Natalie Findlay and Jules Apollinaire — are full of starry-eyed ambition, and have crafted a saturated fusion of symphonic pop, boisterous beats and reflective ballads.

4Ever Songs: Mazzy Star ‘Fade Into You’

Mazzy Star’s dreamy 1994 lullaby Fade Into You is considered one of the most iconic songs of the decade, and the magic behind it is simple.

The alternative piece of dream pop became a teenage soundtrack, with it’s repetitive words of heartache and longing on top of lingering slide guitar and piano. But the band’s guitarist and producer David Roback said they never planned on writing a song that would help define a generation.

When it was released, the fuzzy, dark tune from the Californian band wasn’t a number one hit. In the US, it peaked at number three on Billboard’s Modern Rock charts. But 24 years later, it has featured in 28 movies and television shows.
