Music Rotation — 1 Oct

Posted in music at 8:02 pm by berzerkeleyan

This week, a lot of Folk. Am I aging? Well, yeah…

Ryan Adams “Love Is Hell, Pt. 2” (2003)genre: Folk Rock.
Magnet “The Simple Life” (2007)genre: Space Folk.
The Stills “Without Feathers” (2006)genre: Canadian Indie. I’ve tried many times to get into this album, but it just doesn’t do it for me. Their first is one the best albums of the past decade. This one is not.
Kings of Convenience “Riot On An Empty Street” (2004)genre: Norwegian Bossa Nova Folk.
Turin Brakes “The Optimist LP” (2001)genre: Modern Folk.
Marissa Nadler “Songs III: Bird On The Water” (2006)genre: Folk.
Mew “And The Glass Handed Kites” (2005)genre: Prog Rock. This has been in heavy rotation as of late. It’s so different from anything I own, yet I’m completely hooked.
Midlake “The Trials Of Van Occupanther” (2006)genre: Folksy Americana. This is a very nice album. It sounds both familiar and entirely original. They played at the Doug Fir last Saturday. But I, unfortunately, missed them.
Queen “News Of The World” (1977)genre: Glam Rock.
Amusement Parks On Fire “Amusement Parks On Fire” (2004)genre: American Indie Rock.
Frank Sinatra & Antônio Carlos Jobim “Francis Albert Sinatra & Antônio Carlos Jobim” (1967)genre: Bossa Nova.
