Purchase log picks, February 2020

[Robyn - Body Talk, Pt. 1]

Various Artists, Studio One Rockers

The Studio One compilations planted a notion that maybe I didn’t hate reggae music after all. My coworkers at Waterloo Records would play these compilations, and I would find myself liking what I heard. Dawn Penn’s “No No No” left a particular impression, but many years would pass before I learned the song’s title. The only reggae music I heard growing up was sifted through a Hawaiian music filter, and I didn’t like it.

Robyn, Body Talk, Pt. 1

OK, fellow gays, I understand why you all love Robyn now.

The Faint, Danse Macabre

I stocked so many copies of this album during my Waterloo shifts, I got sick of it, having never heard a single note. If it’s that popular, it had to suck, right? Maybe in my more judgmental days …

Tyler, the Creator, IGOR

Another 2019 release up to which I am catching.

Soundtrack, This Is Spinal Tap

It’s not satire. Fight me. (It’s totally satire.)
