ATUM is a rock opera presented in three acts by inimitable American rock band The Smashing Pumpkins. The album tells an epic interplanetary story set in the not-too-distant future, though the songs themselves respectively stand on their own in the Pumpkins pantheon. This is the final instalment in a concept album trilogy, which began with 1995’s Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness and then continued with 2000's Machina/The Machines of God. The album features three original members of the band—William Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin—as well as long-time guitarist Jeff Schroeder. Corgan had been developing the idea for the rock opera for years, and the pandemic gave him the time off the road to meticulously complete it in the grandiose way he had intended.

"The question of the quality of joy seems to me today to be increasingly vital — it is intrinsically linked to the way in which humour can find its full expression in a world that constantly limits access to lighter moods." Fabrizio Cassol The secret of Aka Moon's longevity lies in their unceasing explorations of both melody and rhythm, and in the expansion of their knowledge and horizons through their encounters with musical cultures from all over the world. At a time when travel and concerts were no longer possible, Fabrizio embarked on an inner exploration in search of the fragmented memories of all his past musical experiences. It was subtle work, focused on the emotions linked to these intonations and then on the paths and the melodic and harmonic doors that they opened. The instrumental line-up includes a permanent base of harmonic instruments in addition to the trio of accordion, guitars, cello) as well as guests (trumpet, voice, brass ensemble) on some tracks. The music is accessible, shareable, lyrical and melodic.

Genre: Country / Label: Six Shooter Records Inc.

Whitehorse is the prolific partnership of Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet. Uninhibited by expectation, boldly adventurous and categorically talented, Whitehorse's signature sound is always guitar-heavy, harmony-plentiful and lyrically deft. "I'm Not Crying, You're Crying" shows Whitehorse venturing deeper and further into Americana/country sounds and stylings than ever before. A twist on the 'pandemic' album, Whitehorse distilled and transcended the gloom and uncertainty with a collection of classic country poetry about heartbreak (not just romantic) and loyalty. The songs are playful yet profound, masterfully simple and timeless. When everything was stripped away, this turn to the universality and simplicity of classic country was the answer. With I'm Not Crying, You're Crying, Whitehorse venture deeper into country music than ever before, a move that is both a homecoming and an evolution of their sound.

Never Going Under is the band's highly anticipated fifth record, and the encapsulation of a continued upward trajectory for Circa Waves over the last decade. Becoming one of Britain's most influential and adored guitar bands, the four piece's dedication to constantly developing their sound has seen them secure increasingly high positions in the Official Album Charts, as well as amassing an army of dedicated fans. Speaking about Never Going Under, frontman Kieran Shudall says: "Never Going under speaks to that uniquely modern phenomenon of genuinely not knowing what type of world our kids are going to find themselves in in 30 years. Physically, environmentally, politically we are completely in the unknown. That scares us all but ultimately we know we can never give up on the future because how can you? The songs on the album are written differently from the previous work we've put out. They are written from the perspective of my son and also from my own current experience of the climate today.
