Portishead – Machine Gun
Their late 90’s “Dummy” was very popular as music to make-out to in our highschool.
Beth Gibbons and the guys packed themselves with explosive beats for “third” – one of the best comeback albums of the decade.
Tricky – Five Days
His mid 90’s “Maxinquaye” was very popular as music to go-all-the-way to in our highschool.
00’s saw tricky recycling himself to boredom, but BlowBack was still a fine album, and in this song he collaborates with the one and only Cindy Lauper.
(same lauper that in the early 80’s possibly supplied one of the popular diy songs, she bop.)
Zero 7 – Destiny
They had potential, with Sia, a wonderful singer, but unfortunately only one good album, after that, – zero 7 dissolved into thin, well, Air.
Kate Bush – How to be invisibile
When originality is your thing however, you last forever, quirky kate bush’s “aerial” comeback album, as well as her older tracks remixed and covered again and again, proves kate’s superiority over the kid’s tables.
Bat for Lashes – pearls dream
Another member of the over weird over theatrical over talented women’s faternity.
Yet, Beautiful music.
Bang Gang – Something wrong pop strings enhanced intimate impossible to choose one track from this album so i went with the title track, composed by iceland talented bardi johansson (also lady&bird). This and Torrini’s are the ultimate crossover albums between iceland’s too alienish bjork, mu’m, amina etc’s interesting sounds, and the rest of us ordinary folks.
stars – on peak hill
from the beautiful “nightsongs”.
Unfortunatelly other then the comebackep ep Their latter lps were not even half as great.
Chicks on Speed (Will Save Us All) – Glamour Girl
Ever changing ensemble of alternative dudes doing Electroclash, performance art, costume design and what not.
M83 – Up!
french electronic one man band mercenery and breathtaking songs
Arcade Fire – Keep the Car Running
It is one annoying bunch of theatrical people, but they do make amazing music.
