Turner

I come down pretty hard on the awfulness of Europop but every now and then I stumble across something that transcends the mundanity Kylie Minogue and Westlife. It's particularly bad here in the valley where we don't have much selection on the radio dial.

We do get one sometimes interesting station. Yesterday, I heard an funny little tune called "After Work" by Turner. The lyrics were so odd - there was a bit in there about how "I recycle, separating my trash and the green waste goes in one bin..." It was like a vaguely sarcastic description of how all good mainstream liberals live their lives.

I went hunting for an MP3 (or at least the lyrics so I could confirm what I thought I'd heard) and via the Ladomat label, I found Turner's site.It's moody and pop at the same time. Be sure to click on the My Airplane Mania dropdown. The Sunday Morning Version is the noise that suits my state of mind.

Save some time for the Ladomat MP3 page - there's some other yummy things there - I like the Tocotronic Sailor Man track.
