Music Rotation — 4 Feb

Posted in music at 3:33 pm by berzerkeleyan

For the week:

Depeche Mode “Playing the Angel” (2005)genre: Synthpop.
This Mortal Coil “It’ll End In Tears” (1984)genre: Goth.
Belle & Sebastian “The Boy With The Arab Strap” (1998)genre: Twee Pop.
Cocteau Twins “The Pink Opaque” (1987)genre: Dream Pop.
Mogwai “EP+6” (2000)genre: Post Rock.
Foo Fighters “One By One” (2002)genre: Power Rock.
Magnet “The Tourniquet” (2005)genre: Space Folk.
The La’s “The La’s” (1990)genre: 60’s Mod Revival.
Stereophonics “Performance And Cocktails” (1999)genre: BritPop.
Sting “Nothing Like The Sun” (1987)genre: Pop.
Radiohead “In Rainbows” (2007)genre: Prog Rock. This is such a vast improvement over their last album, “Hail to the Thief.” Whereas that album was like a piece of modern art — inasmuch as someone had to explain why it was good, as opposed to just knowing it — this album doesn’t hide its brilliance. Add to that the fact that I negotiated a $4.50 purchase price when it was first released, and it is indispensable.
Isaac Hayes “Hot Buttered Soul” (1968)genre: R&B.
Garbage “Bleed Like Me” (2005)genre: Angy Grrl.
Turin Brakes “Dark On Fire” (2007)genre: Folk.
Hall & Oates “Rock ‘n Soul, Pt. 1” (1983)genre: Pop.
Maps “We Can Create” (2007)genre: Electronic Indie Fuzz.
