Music Rotation — 21 Jan

Posted in music at 12:41 am by berzerkeleyan

For the week:

Patrick Watson “Close To Paradise” (2006)genre: Canadian Indie Rock.
Turin Brakes “Dark On Fire” (2007)genre: Folk. First listen of their new album…they’ve expanded their instrumentation, including a little synthesizer into their trademark acoustic sounds. And the magic’s still there. This duo has created another quality album.
Dr. Dre “The Chronic” (1992)genre: Hip Hop.
Martin L. Gore “Counterfeit²” (2003)genre: Electronic Emoschlock.
Embrace “Drawn From Memory” (2000)genre: Emoschlock.
Ryan Adams “Easy Tiger” (2007)genre: alt.country.
Band Of Horses “Everything All The Time” (2006)genre: American Indie Rock.
Catherine Wheel “Ferment” (1992)genre: Shoegazer.
Ryan Adams & The Cardinals “Follow The Lights” (2007)genre: alt.country.
Hard-Fi “Once Upon A Time In The West” (2007)genre: British Arena Rock.
Stars “Set Yourself On Fire” (2005)genre: Canadian Indie Rock. It took a couple of years, but this album has finally clicked for me. It must be the result of my current mental state. Outstandingly bittersweet.
Magnet “The Simple Life” (2007)genre: Space Folk.
Death Cab For Cutie “Transatlanticism” (2003)genre: American Indie Rock.
