Posted in music at 8:44 pm by berzerkeleyan

For the week:

“O Brother, Where Art Thou?” Soundtrack (2000)genre: Bluegrass.
The Bird And The Bee “Interpreting the Masters Volume 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates” (2010)genre: Bliss Pop.
Turin Brakes “Outbursts” (2010)genre: Folk. Turin Brakes go back to simpler arrangements with this one. Nice, though not spectacular.
Oasis “Don’t Believe The Truth” (2005)genre: Brit Pop.
Kent “Röd” (2009)genre: Swedish Electro Pop. This falls flat for me. I simply don’t feel the magic here.
Metric “Live It Out” (2005)genre: Neo Wave.
Vadoinmessico “Vadoinmessico – EP” (2009)genre: Folk. This has been the nicest revelation this year. The band members are from all over the world. Consequently, their sound is a unique international spin on traditional folk music. Very highly recommended.
Serena-Maneesh “S-M 2: Abyss In B Minor” (2010)genre: Shoegazer. This is the latest from one of my favorite bands at the moment. Though it’s not blowing me away just yet, I have a feeling it’ll grow on me.
‘Til Tuesday “Welcome Home” (1986)genre: Anti-Prozac Pop.
White Lies “To Lose My Life…” (2009)genre: Neo Post Punk.
The Cardigans “Gran Turismo” (1998)genre: Electronic Pop.
The Cars “Candy-O” (1979)genre: New Wave.
Department Of Eagles “In Ear Park” (2008)genre: Freak Folk.
