Music Rotation — 17 Aug

Posted in music at 11:27 pm by berzerkeleyan

This past week:

Villagers “Becoming A Jackal” (2010)genre: Chamber Folk.
Spiritualized “Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space” (1997)genre: Space Rock.
“Ken Burns Jazz, Disc 3” (2001)genre: Jazz. I’ve moved past the Swing era and am now listening to Bebop. This is the subgenre of Jazz I find most difficult to enjoy. I appreciate the technical brilliance of all the musicians. But boy, it sure is dense material. As Joseph II tells Mozart in Amadeus, “…too many notes.”
Everything But The Girl “Eden” (1984)genre: Pop Jazz.
Air “Love 2” (2009)genre: Electronic Chill.
Lush “Spooky” (1992)genre: Shoegazer.
