She sounds a bit like the singer from Blonde Redhead. Being tortured with a hot poker.

Does nobody else love Stylo? Maybe it’s just me, but that would be in my Top 3.

Something really special happened when these guys were playing together– and this is a writeup worthy of their output– they had only the most tangential of connections to Britpop and were all the better for it. Life’s an Ocean, Space and Time, and Velvet Morning are the ones not on this list that hold up best for me.

In It for the Money is not just one of the best Britpop albums but one of the best albums of the ’90s, period. Totally uplifting– a perfect Friday night record with not a single sliver of filler.

It took about 5 seconds for this to be the best thing I’ve heard this year so far. Just brilliant

And so is Out of Tune, and so is Puzzles Like You… Totally crazy just to dismiss the band as bland Americana, they were far more sophisticated than that and put out some perfect tunes. I doubt anyone would care about a Slowdive reunion if MBV hadn’t come back last year

Two of the Cave recordings I listen to most are The Secret Life of the Love Song, a vivid insight into his life & writing process, along with stripped-down versions of classics like Sad Waters; and B-Sides and Rarities which is spilling over with brilliant little nuggets that didn’t make the albums (a cover of the Pogues’ Rainy Night in Soho, Come into My Sleep)
