Pop Briefing: What you need to hear

write Every Tuesday, the music editors Ane Hebeisen and Benedikt Sartorius in this new column about pop music. And with a Spotify Playlist price, what are the Songs you listen to.

The first music in this new, weekly Popkolumne is listening to

very quiet. It comes from Jessica Pratt, a Californian who can sing with a helium-high voice, very slow and very tender and also very spooky. So it appears that your Album "Quiet Signs" appears as familiar as foreign: The guitar chords strip the classics of the Folk as well as Brazilian Bossa Nova, and when you then listen to, for example, in the Single "This Time Around", where she sings: "It makes me want to cry", then breaks, not in tears, but it stays stirred.

Quiet Signs by Jessica Pratt

Jessica Pratt is here not only not a musician, expresses in a spectacular position on the lacrimal gland. Rather, she sings calm Songs that you want to listen to again and again, especially when the weather is as gray as last weekend, and you can tolerate a bit of heat. Who can't wait until Friday: The US radio station NPR has the album stream. It's worth it.

is disputed, The Super Bowl halftime show, which this year from the California prosperity rockers Maroon 5 was far more famous Stars said, out of solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, was quickly settled. Also, because the Show in Atlanta, has not given a lot of material for Memes or other Internet passports and musically simple no matter was. Policy? Did not take place in the appearance of this Band. Perhaps suggest it again politically.

Anyway, you could ask yourself the bigger questions, for example, of whether artificial intelligence will ever be able to write a good Song. The question comes from Peter from Ljubljana, and he introduced her to Nick Cave, and answered on its Website, The Red Hand Files catch frases of all kinds. Cave relies in its reply on the best-selling authors Yuval Harari, says that AI could one day write better songs than we humans. Because of course: Algorithms, the measure of our feelings, they can certainly write in the near future, Songs that correspond to our Feeling of sadness or happiness: "When we are sad and happy want to feel, we hear our tailor-made KI-lucky song, and the wars," writes Cave in his reply, which was printed in the "süddeutsche Zeitung" and translated. And he comes to the conclusion: "AI would have the ability to write a good Song, but not great. The nerve is missing."

You should have this answer in the back of the head, especially now, in the play lists of the streaming services only focus on the "Mood" of the User.

The misunderstanding

It is the Winter of 2019, and the inside sounds still, or better: again, the summer hit from the year 2017. How come? Luis Fonsi has just released his first Album, since he has invented with "Despacito" one of the biggest Hits of the recent music history. And because the Streaming royalties are ringing, at least with him still so beautiful, contains "VIDA", the Album's called, is also equal to both "Despacito"-versions.

If the other Songs are also heard, including the already known "Échame La Culpa"? Now, the time has changed since the "Despacito"-summer already. How Latino Pop currently sounds, namely, Fonsis puerto-listen Rican colleagues, Bad Bunny. Bad Bunny appears on his debut album "X 100Pre" as a singer, the frightens off any hint of summery lightness to his voice. Fits better for the season.

What is bloom

"Thank U, Next" – the new Album from Ariana Grande to appear on Friday. So there's already a few months after the "Sweetener" new music from a singer who has been in the past year to Superstar. You can, at the latest, then discuss further whether or not Grande for their current Hit "stole 7 ring" really is and whether you should not leave the hands of Rap.

On the other side of the Popspektrums the Golden lemons wait with their new Album "More Than a Feeling", a title that is ideally suited to Nick cave's AI-reply. For the first Single, "Useful catastrophes" was looking for the Band that has adopted the Funpunk their early days a long time ago and always new paths to addiction, the Hamburger Kunsthalle. There, the "Mona Lisa hangs" as in the Louvre, the recently Beyoncé and Jay-Z visited, but after all, "The Wanderer above the sky of the sea".

The piece

the Band Is a discontinued model, as is always claimed? Not if you listen to Black Midi. About you, although not very much is known, except that the Band in London is established, and, more recently, from the influence of Rough Trade Label range has been put under contract. Now Black Midi have released a new Song: "Speedway" is the title of this one and is not characterized by a latent uneasiness that explodes. To listen the Song is currently only on Youtube, where the Song is accompanied with three free Remixes. On the "Speedway": The Song and the Remixes of Black Midi. Video: Black Midi (Youtube)

The soundtrack

What keeps the beat of the week? For example, this song from the new year – of the above already claimed Jessica Pratt on Lana Del Rey to Anna Aaron or King Pepe, the Swiss music year opened very appealing.
