The soundlounge office can be quite the cacophony of sounds from time to time, but there are days when the stars align and we all agree not to touch the eject button on the stereo receiver. This led to my favorite personal pastime, which soundlounge London will now open to the public: top five music lists.
This week we will focus on the currents -the discs that have yet to be shelved and still remain within an arms length of the stereo.
With respect to the author of High Fidelity, Nick Hornby, and the great cast from the film, especially John Cusack and Jack Black – we shall begin.
‘In no particular order’
1. Animal Collective – Merriweather Post Pavilion
2. Georgia Anne Muldrow – Olesi: Fragments of Earth + (Instrumentals)
3. Girl Talk – Feed The Animals
4. Fleet Foxes – Fleet Foxes
5. Flying Lotus – Los Angeles
Our music supervisior Sam’s wish is for some afterthoughts, so here they are:
Burial – Distant Lights
Little Joy – Little Joy
Ra Ra Riot – The Rhumb Line
Q-Tip – The Renaissance
MGMT – Oracular Spectacular
We will be back with more lists, but the committee will have to meet again.
