In My Life
helluva write-up. guess i’m gonna have to check out your music now.
I really shouldn’t have to say this in 2013, but AdBlock is your friend
The name of Rustie’s album is Glass Swords, and it came out in 2011.
A pretty glaring omission
Can’t wait for these guys to assault my earholes again
I would switch #1 and #2 – but it’s a minor quibble.
The 4 album Rod/Faces run of Every Picture Tells a Story > Nod> Never a Dull Moment > Ooh La La is one of my favorites in rock n roll.
great pick for album of the week.
one album which deserved to be included in the notables is Haiku Salut’s impressive debut, Tricolore.
An all-female instrumental trio from England, they offer up the clumsy self-description of “Baroque-Pop-Folktronic-Neo-Classical-Something-Or-Other” – but I can’t do any better.
The album is filled with uplifting, complex-yet-accessible compositions perfect for springtime. And it’s available on Spotify.
Blue Monday is the greatest song of the 80s IMO.
I was a bit iffy about Breakers at first, mainly because of how produced the “oooh”s sound in comparison to the vocal harmonies on GM. Then I saw this acoustic performance of it & was won over.
