Soundtrack to the Week

sensual world

Kate Bush, The Sensual World (1989)

Not one of my favourite Kate Bush albums, but it’s grown on me in recent years. Top track: ‘The Sensual World

lost in space

Aimee Mann, Lost in Space (2002)

I absolutely love this album. The songs are sad, but for some reason I find it comforting. Top track: The Moth

boatman's call

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Boatman’s Call (1997)

So much bellyaching about various relationship breakups on this album. Love it though, except for ‘Green Eyes’. Top tracks ‘Lime Tree Arbour‘ and, if I really want some misery, ‘Where do we go now but nowhere?’

cowboy junkies

Cowboy Junkies, 200 More Miles: Live Performances 1985 – 1994 

I first came across the Cowboy Junkies through the track ‘Me and the Devil‘ which was on the soundtrack to teen angst movie Pump Up the Volume (1990).  I thought they were so cool and my local library had this on CD, which was a surprise. Later, they turned out to be the first band that I went to see with my girlfriend – mainly because Mary Gauthier was also playing, but hey.  Top track: Sweet Jane.


Uh huh Her, Nocturnes (2011)

Fun lesbian electronica. Top track: Another Case
