Tracks in Brief
"You're A Woman, I'm A Machine"
Death From Above 1979
Hard-rocking and fun. Here's a sample: Romantic Rights
Les Savy Fav
Compilation disc of the year.
"Wet From Birth"
Hands down the catchiest album of the year. Electronic with a mostly hard rock edge.
"Happiness in Magazines"
Blur's guitarist has released a great solo record.
"Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes"
TV On The Radio
Winner of the Shortlist Music Prize for best indie CD of the year, this is a rock album with a rhythm and funk sound.
"The String Sessions"
The stripped-down versions of 3 of Lord's songs, all featuring the Section Quartet, is an acoustic wonderland.
"Cast of Thousands"
Band's sophomore outing features more moody, lush rock.
