“I can’t get that sound you make out of my head…”

July 11, 2009

That lyrical snippet is from Doug Martsch’s band Built to Spill. It’s from the track “I would Hurt a Fly” off of Perfect from now on. For a long time this was one of my favorite songs and albums out of the 90’s right next to White Trash Heroes from Archers of Loaf.

I really fell in love with how music could change my mood or make me feel with bands like The Pixies, Built to Spill, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Nirvana, Guided by Voices, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Pavement, Dinosaur Jr., The Amps, Madder Rose, Jon Spencer, and many more. This all occurred during the 90s for me. I started stumbling across all these artists, spending money left and right on CDs, LPs, and even *gasp* TAPES. I can thank this decade for forming my love/obsession with music. So this week, I’m going to play tribute to that, and ignore my urge to play late 70s, 80s, and recent stuff. I’m going to bring you some of the albums that came out in that decade of music that brought sound to my life.

Listen in this Wednesday from 8pm till 10pm, at KRUI 89.7 fm or online here.

I’ll bring you the playlist soon.
