|More like LINESburn, Ohio: it's '80s time ROCK YEA|
Oft-maligned decade, even by me -- which is weird because heaps of my favorite bands emerged from the epoch but also I'm hugely bored at work so i'm continuing my motif please love me
One Too Many Salty Swift And Not Goodbye
1980. Free Jazz par excellence. Rivalled only by
Remain in Light
personally i adored David Byrnes cameo on Joanna Newsom's new album... some of his strongest work
1981. Epochal in so many ways, the opus of androgyny, infinitely better than actual nightclubbing. An exercise in accessibility and pop nous failing to obtrude a lingering sense of disquiet, which isn't to say you can't groove out to it because, I mean, it's Grace Jones.
1982. I've used this joke before but: more like decolletage music bc this album is the tits. Musique Concrete.
Confusion is Sex/Kill Yr Idols
1983. My favourite Sonic Youth and I look very dashing in the t-shirt too, the debonair hipster you can take home to meet your parents!!!!
1984. I think it resonates because I too am a Queer Icon. Bookended by two of the best ballads of the century.
A Portrait of Kaija Saariaho
1985. I am a parvenu and dullard who can't talk about classical music but I like the evocative sounds i guess, and the way the steely scandanavian iciness is juxtaposed against lush soundscapes? Probably Havey's real mum.
World of Echo
1986. Haveing a thicke, creamey weep to this is the closest you'll get to God. There is no other. ALTHOUGH Color of Spring was released this same year and it is the second-best Talk Talk soooooo
Come On Pilgrim
1987. tfw you'll never cum on a pilgrim :'(. EP; my LP of choice would be
|10|| ||Yasuaki Shimizu|
Music for Commercials
this proto-vaporwave compendium of jingles; like J Dilla's Donuts for those into a s s t h e t i c
1988. Two of my favourite bands release
their respective capital-s Statements; noise drips from every wall in hip neighbourhoods. ROCK N ROLL BABEY HELL YEA *spanks own ass while walking away lasciviously, leaving my boss to clutch his head in his hands and wonder why he agreed to a 3-year contract*
Oh and you should listen to this too it's so fucking beautiful you won't regret it... 30 days satisfaction or your money back!!!!
This is how the decade ends; not with a bang but with a grungy, disaffected whimper
Blood Upon the Altar
...although there were bangs to be had too :).
