Music Rotation — 10 Mar

Posted in music at 7:45 pm by berzerkeleyan

This week:

Magnet “The Simple Life” (2007)genre: Space Folk.
Patrick Watson “Close To Paradise” (2006)genre: Canadian Indie Rock. The Jeff Buckley comparisons are inevitable. Watson has that same lilting, delicate falsetto as Buckley, and the songs are almost as unconventional. He’ll never replace The Master, but Watson’s sloppy seconds aren’t half bad.
Devendra Banhart “Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon” (2007)genre: Freak Folk. It’s taking me a while to get into this. I’m still working on it.
Terence Trent D’Arby “Wildcard” (2001)genre: Rock/R&B.
Turin Brakes “Dark On Fire” (2007)genre: Folk.
Starsailor “On The Outside” (2006)genre: BritPop.
Ryan Adams “Easy Tiger” (2007)genre:
The Stills “Logic Will Break Your Heart” (2003)genre: Post-Punk Revival.
Isaac Hayes “Hot Buttered Soul” (1968)genre: R&B.
