Pieces are mid length to long format, and all focus on specific aspects of pop music aesthetics, history and cultural meaning. The authors are French but also Australian (Tim Finney), German (Diedrich Diederichsen) and British (Paul Purgas, Simon Reynolds).
Its editorial line is halfway between an academic review and a hi-fi fanzine.
Some pieces tends to be objective analysis of musical ideas and practices (ie, the aesthetics of remastering in house music), but some others express personal ideas and bias towards particular objects (ie, a personal history of the rare rock song, or the uselessness of the album review).
The whole idea behing this project is to cover pop music in a non-journalistic way, but also neither in a purely academic manner.
