Music Rotation — 27 Apr

Posted in music at 9:51 pm by berzerkeleyan

This week:

Patrick Watson “Close To Paradise” (2006)genre: Canadian Indie Rock. He’s coming to the Doug Fir next week. And I, unfortunately, will be away on a business trip. Crap.
Ben Kweller “On My Way” (2004)genre: American Indie Rock.
Pet Shop Boys “Yes” (2009)genre: Techno Pop.
Holly Throsby “Under The Town” (2006)genre: Twee Folk. My friends Stu and Keith were three of about six people who went to see Holly Throsby play at a small bar in Wellington. She was great. The added intimacy of the show no doubt enhanced the appeal.
Sara Lov “Seasoned Eyes Were Beaming” (2009)genre: Twee Folk.
Teenage Fanclub “Bandwagonesque” (1991)genre: British Alternative Rock.
Gomez “Split The Difference” (2004)genre: British Indie Rock.
Hard-Fi “Stars Of CCTV” (2005)genre: Britpop.
Doves “Kingdom Of Rust” (2009)genre: Britpop. One of my favorite bands over the past few years. Though excellent, this one ranks as my least favorite of theirs. However, it beats out 99% of what’s out there.
