Computer Love: An Interview with Milosh

The Body Electric.

Milosh’s fourth album, Jetlag, is an exploration of intimacy. He talks about his songwriting and the journey he has taken making electronic music.

Move In Spectrums • Au Revoir Simone

Released September 23, 2013
Au Revoir Simone, on their fourth album Move in Spectrums, remain dark, mysterious and a little self-indulgent.

Andrew Darley talks to Marco Lawrence, the man behind Hall of Mirrors, a new voice in electronic music.

Flush the Fashion • Alice Cooper

Released April 28, 1980
With Flush the Fashion, Alice Cooper reinvented himself and his music, embracing a punk and electronic edge.

The Multi-Dimensional Sound.

Jonna Lee talks about the development of online multimedia sensation iamamiwhoami, and what that means to the evolution of music in the digital age.

Crossing Borders: Susanne Sundfør Interview

Dramatic Electronic Pop.

Susanne Sundfør on collaborating with M83 for the soundtrack to Oblivion, her work with Röyksopp, and the UK release of her back catalogue.
