Honey  performed by Puffy  1998
Recommended by tinks [profile]

One of Puffy's Andy Sturmer productions, this track brings to mind things such as ABBA's "Fernando" with it's faux-Andalusian flavor...but those loopy sound effects and the theater organ solo just scream out Tokyo!

from Jet CD (Sony Japan)
available on CD - The Best of Puffy: Amiyumi Jet Fever (Sony Japan)

Eyes of Dreams  performed by Lewis Parker  1998
Recommended by tinks [profile]

Lewis Parker may not be well-known, either in the US or in his native England, but he has done more to elevate the quality of British hip-hop than anybody else. His philosophical lyrics combine with an impeccable sense of rhythm to give him a place as one of the freshest voices on either side of the Atlantic.

from Masquerades & Silhouettes. The Ancients Series One., available on CD (Melankolic/Astralwerks)

Broken Heart  performed by Spiritualized  1998
Recommended by tinks [profile]

A different version than the one that appears on "Ladies and Gentlemen We are Floating in Space", this one features a slightly slower tempo, a full gospel choir and some lushly arranged strings and horns. Absolutely beautiful...a longer instrumental version also appears on the EP.

from Abbey Road (EP), available on CD (Arista)

  11 May 01 ·delicado: this was on my list to recommend too...but I've only heard the album version...what an astounding track! Will have to check out the EP...
Over  performed by Alpha  1998
Recommended by tinks [profile]

Terrific downbeat with a very sparse feel. Great soundtrack-inspired piece of moody Bristol trip-hop, with nods to Barry Adamson and Jimmy Webb.

from Pepper: Remixes & Rarities (EP), available on CD (Melankolic)

Ears  performed by Cinerama  1998
Recommended by tinks [profile]

The first line says it all: "I've gone as far/as I can go with this crap". A classically lush pop tale of infidelity. This bitter duet featuring Emma Pollock of the Delgados has a brooding feel reminiscent of great orchestral pop of the past, especially that of Barry and Bacharach.

from Va Va Voom, available on CD (SpinART)

  11 May 01 ·delicado: I was a huge 'Wedding Present' fan, so I really should check this out, thanks.
  11 May 01 ·tinks: absolutely, cinerama's first album is excellent. quite a bit different from the wedding present, but very good in it's own way.
