PJ Harvey and John Parish
In a stone inn in rural Dorset, PJ Harvey and long-time collaborator John Parish talk the rapture, beauty and disgust of new album A Woman A Man Walked By. Plan B peruses a menu, will pass on the chicken livers, if it's all the same to you.
Cut free from parent band The Knife, Karin Dreijjr Andersson is Fever Ray, a faceless sculptress shaping strange pop geometry from polished surfaces and ghostly matter
In thrall to religious visions, borne up on ambitious, baroque productions, the songs of this Laurel Canyon composer levitate far beyond flower child whimsy, and still resonate today.
In Praxis: Hauschka
For the latest in our ongoing series on the process of music-making, Plan B petitions experimental pianist Volker Bertelmann for a peek under the lid.
