Music Rotation — 2 Aug

Posted in music at 10:46 pm by berzerkeleyan

Last week, the following:

Rush “Moving Pictures” (1981)genre: Progressive Rock.
The Specials “The Specials” (1979)genre: Ska.
“Ken Burns Jazz, Disc 1” (2001)genre: Jazz.
Echo & The Bunnymen “Ocean Rain” (1984)genre: Post Punk.
Sara Watkins “Sara Watkins” (2009)genre: Country Folk.

…<yawn>…

Spiritualized “Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space” (1997)genre: Space Rock. I have heard a lot about this album over the years, and am only just now listening to it. I can hear why it’s so highly regarded.
Lloyd Cole “Antidepressant” (2006)genre: Folk Rock.
Brett Anderson “Slow Attack” (2009)genre: Chamber Folk. Oh boy, this is downright funereal. Way too heavy for me at the moment. I’ll have to come back to it when I’m in the mood.
Stephen Malkmus “Stephen Malkmus” (2001)genre: American Indie Rock.
Villagers “Becoming A Jackal” (2010)genre: Chamber Folk. In very heavy rotation at the moment.
Young Knives “Superabundance” (2008)genre: Power Punk. I’m finally getting around to listening to all the albums I’ve accumulated over the past few years. This is one of them. Excellent, excellent, excellent, excellent stuff. Fans of Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs, etc. should give this a listen.
Oasis “Dig Out Your Soul” (2008)genre: British Rock.
