Music Rotation — 25 Aug

Posted in music at 5:52 pm by berzerkeleyan

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything. But there’s been a lot of good stuff on the rotation lately, and I felt compelled.

Donald Fagen “The Nightfly” (1983)genre: Progressive Pop Jazz.
Heliocentrics “Out There” (2007)genre: Hip Hop Free Jazz.
Dillard & Clark “The Fantastic Expedition Of Dillard & Clark” (1968)genre: Country.
Yeasayer “All Hour Cymbals” (2007)genre: Indie World.
Wu-Tang Clan “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)” (1993)genre: Hip Hop.
Neutral Milk Hotel “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” (1998)genre: Indie.
The Verve “Forth” (2008)genre: Britpop. This sounds more like a Richard Ashcroft solo album than the Verve. But there are a couple of tracks that evoke their glory days. This will be in heavy rotation for a while.
The Veils “Nux Vomica” (2006)genre: Emoschlock.
The Style Council “Confessions of a Pop Group” (1988)genre: Pop Jazz.
Coldplay “Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends” (2008)genre: Emoschlock. A friend of mine had a debate the other day about this album. Is it insipidly pompous, or pompously insipid? My answer: yes.
Bon Iver “For Emma, Forever Ago” (2006)genre: Folk.
Badly Drawn Boy “About A Boy” (2002)genre: Emoschlock.
Kent “Tillbaka Till Samtiden” (2007)genre: Swedish BritPop.
