Album Suggestions from September 2011

You will find Todd Rundgren next to The Sex Pistols (that does make me giggle) and Duke Ellington next to Queens of the Stone Age (“Songs for the Deaf” on a hi-fi? Why not?).

Album Suggestions from Camp Bestival

In the meantime, check out this list of albums suggested by the Camp Bestival attendees. It has some of the usual greats along with a lot of new suggestions (from The Congos to The Dead Kennedys). Another great read…

Album Suggestions from July 2011

Maybe the most versatile suggestion list from the past month’s session - from pop to soul to metal to rock to new wave to new age to electronic to house and even our first alt country suggestion (Flying Burrito Brothers - yeah!).

Tim Rushent on Martin Rushent

“Music is the closest thing we have to real magic. Sometimes it comes easy … sometimes it takes a little bit more time and a lot more patience. Both these albums were a labour of love for Dad."

Album Suggestions from June 2011

Wow - some nice jazz suggestions here. Love the Pat Metheny and it has to be said that anything on the ECM label is like sonic nirvana! He and Lyle Mays have a lot of great albums but this one is truly special.

Album Suggestions from May 2011

An interesting read spanning the scope of the “credibil-o-meter” from Joni Mitchell at one obvious end to Girls Aloud on the other.

Album of the Month: Grace Jones “Nightclubbing”

Album of the Month: Kate Bush “Hounds of Love”

Kate Bush's self-produced fifth album was a highly structured song cycle where conceptual experimentation was married with pop conciseness.

Album Suggestions from April 2011

Here are the suggestions that were made at our fantastic Syd Barrett “The Madcap Laughs” listening session at The Idea Generation Gallery as well as our monthly April CAS session.
