Tracks of my years The Divine Comedy - Love What You Do The Divine Comedy's twenty-first century reboot was both bold and brilliant, but not the commercial success Parlophone had hoped for. >>
Tracks of my years Coldplay - Yellow There are no guilty pleasures: only pleasures. Yellow is one of them. >>
Tracks of my years Blur - Tender Tender was the lead single and opening track on Blur's 6th studio album, 13. Co-written and co-sung by Coxon and Albarn with backing vocals from the London Community Gospel Choir, it couldn't have felt much less Blur. >>
Tracks of my years Air - La Femme D’Argent The seven-minute instrumental La Femme D'Argent is the first track on Moon Safari. You can't love me ironically, it seems to say, with its funky disco basslines and thoroughly un-modern synthesiser sounds, because I am already too ironic. >>
Tracks of my years Belle & Sebastian - Lazy Line Painter Jane Lazy Line Painter Jane itself is undoubtedly the pick of Belle & Sebastian's 1997 EP output, featuring a glorious guest vocal, swirling organs, guitars turned up, and a noise and energy that the band had kept mostly hidden up to this point. >>
Tracks of my years Suede - Picnic by the Motorway Picnic By The Motorway is not one of the poppy, "attractive in an obvious sort of way" songs on Coming Up. It's probably the least new-Suede song on the album. And yet it was one of the first songs that Oakes and Anderson wrote together. >>
Tracks of my years Tindersticks - Tiny Tears Tiny Tears is the crowning moment of the orchestral feast that is Tindersticks' second album: strings have seldom wept so sweetly, or contrasted so dramatically as here with Staples' gravel-tones and the warbling organ. >>
Playlist Tracks of my Years Part 2 Behold! Part 2 of my attempt to pluck a single song from each of the years 1974-2014 and hold it up as an example to the world of what might be. Or at least what was, roughly speaking, going on in my musical world at the time. >>
Tracks of my years Oasis - Supersonic Supersonic hit the charts three places below PJ & Duncan. It was an inauspicious start to a scarcely believable career. >>
Tracks of my years The Boo Radleys - Lazarus Near the end of 1992, The Boo Radleys released a single, Lazarus, that was a world away from the layered obfuscation of Everything’s Alright Forever. 6 minutes long and change, it's eerie, spacey, and builds tension through a thrilling three minute intro. >>
In Depth 1992 – The Loved Albums Having made my choice for 1992's Tracks of my Years playlist, I was hit by a flood of thoughts of what might have been. This was the year that my music collection truly started to begin the burgeon; my purchasing power still lagged behind my curiosity, but as both grew, so did my library. >>
Tracks of my years The House of Love - Feel Babe Rainbow was a beautiful creation, but despite the melancholic splendour of The Girl with the Loneliest Eyes, the anthemic Feel, and the collapsing beauty of Yer Eyes, no-one seemed particularly interested. >>
