The 100 Best Albums Of The 2010s

This post was originally published on this site

The 100 Best Albums Of The 2010sA decade is an arbitrary measurement. They seem confined, these neat little symmetrical 10-year runs, but it’s only in hindsight that we define them, that their signifiers and trends and shorthand become codified. In reality, there are bleeds, the timbre and events of one chunk of time sliding over the border into another. If you’re … More »

Arca’s Mutant;Faith Was A Captivating, Challenging Display Of Experimentation

This post was originally published on this site

“Performance art” can be a dirty word. “Pretentious” and “impenetrable” are terms that may come to mind. But what about performance art by one of our most unpredictable electronic music provocateurs? If Arca’s recent Mutant;Faith performance series had to fall on one side of “concert” or “performance art,” it would be the latter. With that … More »

Björk announces limited-edition cassette reissues of her studio albums

This post was originally published on this site

Proud owners of cars manufactured pre-millennium, rejoice: Björk is reissuing her nine studio albums — from Debut to Utopia — as limited-edition cassette tapes! Let me rewind and hit you with that again (wait, hold on, give me a minute…); yes, that’s right: you can finally collect Björk’s nine timeless albums on the most archaic music format still in mass production!

Here’s what you can get: Debut, Post, Homogenic, Vespertine, Medúlla, Volta, Biophilia, Vulnicura, and Utopia (R.I.P. Selmasongs) individually or in a bundle as stunning colored cassettes. They’ll look incredible on your shelves! (Or, more realistically, the Discogs Marketplace.)

For fans who love Björk as much as they love inconvenience, lack of durability, and low fidelity, you can pre-order one or all of the cassettes here, with an official release date of April 26. Individual tapes cost £8.99, while the bundle will run you £69.99, which Google tells me is currently equivalent to 92.91 United States Dollars (or 10,972.77 Icelandic Króna!), which is honestly a steal. Just remember these bad boys and girls are limited, so you gotta get in there before you get stuck with Volta or something. (I’m sorry, I didn’t mean that. <3 )
