For me and the people I knew at the time as a college senior, the harbinger was Stankonia, which came out at the end of October 2000, a few weeks after Kid A. "B.O.B." had come out in September, and I literally drove off the road the first time I heard it! Power music, electric revival!
Bjork has a very striking visual sensibility, obviously, which makes her videos and vinyl art work so fun and interesting. Here is my breakdown of Bjork album art, coming from someone who has spent a troubling amount of time leafing through her LPs while stoned: 9. Volta (world's most Scandinavian Christmas ornament) 8. Homogenic (she's wearing Alexander McQueen! this one reads too 90s shiny for me though) 7. Vulnicura (chest vagine) 6. Biophilia (she looks like the winning poodle on an episode of Pooch Perfect, in a good way) 5. Vespertine (looks like a still from an Ingmar Bergman movie) 4. Medulla (she shoulda sold Covid facemasks with this S&M Superhero look) 3. Utopia (I love the color palette, and how she's holding a flute on the cover) 2. Debut (gemstone eye makeup and fuzzy sweater get me every time) 1. Post (I love the motion and how she's in the center looking like it's 5:45 a.m. and she's halfway through a night of clubbing as the city vibrates and teems around her)
I love the picture here. It is like the Insane Clown Posse mixed with the Rite of Spring!
This is a reasonable list and as long as people are listening to Bjork, I am good. But I am a little surprised that Debut didn't get more love in the list or the comments here. It is my favorite, and it is a monster record for so many people from the 90s. "Venus as a Boy" might actually be the most beautiful piece of music ever recorded. I think it is a damn shame that people don't mention Bjork when they start discussing the very greatest pop musicians of the last 30 years as well the all-time great musical explorers. Whenever people mention OutKast or Radiohead or Kanye West or David Bowie with reverence, they should mention Bjork.
I legit thought that the photo with the story depicted Slowthai with a new flat-top
If we can't joke about a mass murderer killing a bunch of innocent people at a concert, then what can we joke about?
PPS Williams released another new album, the Tom Petty tribute "Running Down a Dream," in October of last year.
Is he wearing a couture balaclava in the cover photo?
They play ping-pong in a hot spring as they're soaking and drinking milk? I am reading this right? Japan is truly a world away. Here in California, we mostly relax by destroying our brains with drugs and alcohol and staring into a tiny screen.
Judging solely on the track suit, Noel is turning into a Cockney crime lord from a Guy Ritchie movie
Time for me to go back to Hudson University and enroll in the J.D. program!
This band simply must be a bunch of Kid Rock-style pro-Trump science-deniers if they are planning a tour right now! Someone could get sick! (clutches pearls)
How did the judge accept a plea deal from someone who refuses to admit responsibility for his actions or apologize to the victim? I thought these were fairly common conditions for a plea? (Obviously I base this on years of Sam Waterson, not law school . . . )
It seems like that's basically how they're selling it, with the "Music*Bourbon*Equine" getting equal billing. This is pretty close to a beer festival or one of the concerts they do on race day at Del Mar or somewhere. Still it's a pretty decent bill and if those dudes can bring their wives and they have fun, too, more power to them. This will be also probably the first weekend of a post-pandemic, hopefully, semester at Univ. of Kentucky but I would bet none of these bands would draw much from college students (sorry Tanya Tucker!) and would be out of their price range anyway.
Everybody is eligible for a Covid vaccine right now, and I doubt the vigorous teenagers thru mid-40s crowd gathered here has anything to worry about with Covid any more than it would the flu or lightning strikes or NYC street crime. Plus, this is a free country where people should be able to take their own risks, and if these folks are truly vulnerable and want to risk their health for this music, that is not a public issue to me. The destruction of the park via unauthorized vehicles, amps, and stages is the problem here. Not cool! (Although I could just be speaking as the spouse of a Parks & Rec professional.)
Oddly, between What's Your Pleasure, Roisin Machine, and How I'm Feeling Now, 2020 might have been my favorite year for dance music in quite a while, despite its locked-down dreadfulness. I had What's Your Pleasure? on last night as I was making dinner and cannot wait for the extra tracks.
I would love to see Midland at more festivals like this. I am glad to see Japanese Breakfast expand their reach also; I wonder how her stuff will go over in a mainstream crowd like this one promises to draw.
Consider this your trigger warning 4 U if you ever read a tracklist or lyric sheet from Prince
Her golden goose is her incredible musical talent and overall artistic ability
Irish Heartbeat? I personally would put that just after Astral Weeks as my #2 Van joint of all time.
