I didn’t review a whole lot of music over summer – but I did get hooked on some things, especially things related to books I was reading.
I wrote a whole lot more, just recently, about the summer rediscoveries – two of the things on that list were talked about in this segment.
First up I talked about Brian Eno – his biography On Some Faraway Beach and his recent compilation of film scores. And I played the song Under.
Then I talked about Bananarama – based on the book I’m currently reading. And the fact that this song keeps turning up – I rewatched The Karate Kid, I watched Hillbilly Elegy, I even wrote a poem about it as a result. So It was fun to play Cruel Summer live on air.
