Music Rotation — 24 Aug

Posted in music at 6:14 pm by berzerkeleyan

For the week:

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros “Up from Below” (2009)genre: Freak Folk.
Portishead “Third” (2008)genre: Electronic Paranoia. In heavy rotation at the moment.
Arctic Monkeys “Humbug” (2009)genre: British Rock. My six word review of Arctic’s Monkey’s latest: “When did Morrissey join the band?” I’m hoping this album will reveal itself over the coming weeks. But at the moment, it sounds as if adulthood has caught up with the lads from Sheffield. And I, unfortunately, miss their youthful sound.
The Bird And The Bee “Ray Guns Are Not Just The Future” (2009)genre: Techno Twee Pop.
Camera Obscura “Let’s Get Out Of This Country” (2006)genre: Twee Pop.
Calexico “Hot Rail” (2000)genre: American Southwest Indie.
Band Of Horses “Everything All The Time” (2006)genre: Americana.
Judas Priest “Screaming For Vengeance” (1982)genre: Metal.
Ash “1977” (1996)genre: Britpop.
