Tangerine Dream, formed in Germany in 1967, have released over 130 albums worldwide - both live recordings and studio works. Their instantly recognizable synth-based instrumental music has had an immense impact on musicians across genres and generations alike, from Future Sound of London to Porcupine Tree's seminal video game soundtracks. Their music has even been featured on popular television shows like Stranger Things as well as inspiring artists such as pop duo Klaus Schulze or rock group Spiritualized.
Tangerine Dream has always been known for crafting music with an epic scale - as vast and elemental as a mountain. And their latest release, #LoverLiveFromParis Special Edition Heart-Shaped Vinyl, continues this legacy.
On their second album since founding member Edgar Froese's passing in 2015, the band continues to amp up their signature style of cosmic synth music. The 15-minute title track pays homage to 1972's Zeit with its shimmering Moog bassline summoning forth synth sweeps as potent as rocket fuel before Hoshiko Yamane's electric violin slowly emerges.
Thorsten Quaeschning, Hoshiko Yamane and Paul Frick continue to explore the concept behind their previous EP (Probe 6--8) through late night real time compositions with classic studio productions, sequencer driven haunting soundscapes and anthemic warm synthesizers. With full access to Froese's Cubase arrangements and Otari Tape Archive recordings from 1977-2013, they have created captivating late night compositions with full access to these rich archive resources.
Tangerine Dream's album, Raum, is a testament to Edgar Froese's vision and endless creativity. With their new live campaign set to begin in 2022, the band continues their rebirth with this album that proves even after Froese's passing they remain as powerful and resilient as ever before.
Tangerine Dream's latest record is an irresistible delight that you won't want to put down. Whether you're a longtime fan or just starting out, this heart-shaped vinyl is the perfect way to get acquainted with their work and become even more enamored with Tangerine Dream.
Vinyl records have seen a resurgence in popularity as more people than ever recognize the value of physical goods. With most vinyl collectors spending between $50-100 on their latest purchase, record companies are getting creative with their releases to keep us coming back for more.
For me, the David Bowie 'Heathen' Deluxe Edition (pictured) stands as one of the most impressive reissues, boasting several special features like an album cover slightly larger than usual and plenty of bonus content. Those willing to shell out the money will get one of the finest remasters of Bowie's classic album in addition to an incredible looking package that makes every penny worthwhile.
With the exception of Bowie's Heathen remaster, there isn't much choice when it comes to his latest reissues. The most prominent is undoubtedly the album sleeve-sized release, but that's about all you can get for fans of David Bowie. Fortunately for us all, there are plenty more worthy entries we won't mention here. To find the most captivating releases this year, be sure to explore various online outlets for inspiring picks.
Alana Haim is a Grammy-nominated pop-rock artist known for her talents on guitar, keyboards and singing in her Grammy-nominated band Haim. She and sisters Este and Danielle formed the group in 2007; their songs have been featured on major film soundtracks since then; now signed to Roc Nation.
Haim, a self-described Valley girl, grew up in the San Fernando Valley. She remembers spending her childhood days with her two older sisters at Tower Records, shopping at Sherman Oaks Galleria and celebrating special occasions at Sportsman's Lodge with family and friends.
Haim has a special connection to Israel due to her parents: Mordechai "Moti" Haim, an Israeli football player and drummer, and Donna Haim, a musician who won an episode of The Gong Show in the 1970s by singing a Bonnie Raitt song. It's only natural then that Haim should feel a strong affinity for her home state.
At age nine, Haim began writing her own music and formed the band with her sisters. Since then, they've become major forces in the industry with their debut album Days Are Gone (2013) and subsequent studio albums Something to Tell You and Woman in Music, Pt. III (2015) which were all nominated for album of the year at 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.
Anderson became a huge fan of Haim's music videos, so when he wanted to write and direct a film with her he immediately thought of her. Her sisters had previously collaborated with Anderson on some of their own videos, so they were already familiar with his style and knew they could deliver an honest performance for the camera.
Haim stars as Alana Kane, a twenty-something who becomes entranced with the confident and charming Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman, son of Anderson's late collaborator Philip Seymour Hoffman). She finds herself caught up in an intense love triangle that can be both painful and inspiring.
