Matthew Sweet - 100% Fun
Mid-90's Alt-Rock. Loved the lead hit so I bought the CD. Some good songs, nothing great but as the title states... fun. Sick of myself, we're the same, Walk out, Super baby, Getting older.
Sweet Sensation - Take It While It's Hot
80's club/dance music in high gear. I was mainly a Rock guy during these years but...when out at the clubs on the week-ends this was the stuff. This music was also the choice for the guys with the big boomin woofers in their cars. This is probably some of the better music of the genre. Never let you go, Sincerly yours, Take it while it's hot, Victim of love, Hooked on you.
Also one of my favorite music videos too
Couple of EP's I found this week, taking me back to my dancing days back in the late 80's !
Billy Idol - Vital Idol
Who doesn't like Billy Idol? This collection leaves off a few of his biggest "vital" hits, but is a decent CD none the less. White wedding, Flesh for fantasy, To be a lover, Catch my fall.
The Sweet Taunts - Breathless
Local (Lodi Ca.) husband/wife duo's 2017 release. Dustin and Christine Taunton (hence the name sweet taunts) are good friends of mine and very good musicians. It's always fun to see and hear music that was made by local people that you know...especially when it's good music. This 9 track cd was also recorded locally at Nacnud studios. (shout out to Duncan) Breathless, Where were you, Man of faces, Hey you.
This video made me dizzy but it and the song are really, really good.
Switchfoot - Hello Hurricane
2009 release by SoCal band. Nice balance of edgy harder rock tunes and nice emotional ballads. This is a great CD. Mess of me, Your love is a song, The sound, Hello hurricane, Bullet soul.
Natalie Imbruglia - Left Of The Middle
This seems to be the "sister CD " to Alanis Morrisette's Jagged Little Pill. They are almost identacle in sound, structure and tone. That is a good thing considering that I think both cd's are excellent. The video for Torn was obnoxiously overplayed on mtv and vh1, but somehow I ended up with this cd and i'm glad I did. Torn, One more addiction, Smoke, Impressed, Intuition, City.
Incubus - Make Yourself
I liked the song "Drive" a lot so I eventually bought this CD, several years later. Every time I listen to it I like it more. This band incorporates some interesting dynamics and structures into the songs, and I really like the drummers style of playing. Not quite a great CD, but very good.Privilege, The warmth, Stellar, Drive, Pardon me, Nowhere fast.
Probably not what anyone would expect anyone to be listening to right now....but I am sick and tired of all the political conversations in my office and this drowns then out and relaxes me all at the same time. And as a MAJOR bonus I cannot hear any of the talk of Trump, Biden, Pence or Harris
Actually reminds me of my late mother-in-law who was a Pure Land Buddhist. When I was in her house in Beijing this was playing on a continuous loop 24/7...you get use to it after awhile and it becomes rather relaxing....
Information Society - Information Society
This 1988 release reflects a very popular sound of the time. Seems that there were several bands/artists that were making this electronic/dance music. These guys did it well..a very good cd. What's on your mind(pure energy), Repetition, Walking away, Tomorrow, Attitude.
Talk To Her(Habla Con Ella) - Soundtrack
Soundtrack to Spanish movie that I've never seen. I bought this Cd because I was under the impression that it features Flamenco guitarist Vicenete Amigo, as it turns out he is only on one track. This is actually some very nice, relaxing music. Mainly classical/chamber music stuff. with a tango(featuring some nice guitar playing), and some beautiful vocals on a few tracks. Habla con ella, Curcurrucuccu Paloma, Raquel, Por toda a minha vida.
Talking Heads - Popular Favorites (Sand In The Vasoline) Disc 1
First of a 2-disc set featuring Heads hits in chronological order. Some of these early songs are kind of week but there are half-dozen or so strong tracks and a few good ones on this disc. Take me to the river, Psycho killer, Burning down the house, Once in a lifetime, Memories can't wait, Swamp.
another one I had not heard in years, but heard tonight and I'm listening to now
