And we’re back! It’s about goshdarn time we introduced a new round of Throwback Thursday albums, lovingly curated by our team of music experts @ Murfie HQ.
Dance Dance Dance: The Best of Chic – Chic
“These are the good times…” – Philip
Stop Making Sense – Talking Heads
“David Byrne’s created plenty of music and art since its release, but it still gets regular play on my turntable!” – Glynnis
The Best of Depeche Mode, Vol. 1 – Depeche Mode
“Depeche Mode is one of the most prolific New Wave groups that has influenced everyone from the Pet Shop Boys to The Killers.” – Will
Closer – Joy Division
“Closer is the last of two albums released by the British “post-punk” band Joy Division, just two months after the suicide of the group’s lead singer Ian Curtis. Joy Division single-handedly defined the post-punk genre with Closer.” – Corey
Sentimento Brasileiro: Music from the Brazilian Heart – Various Artists
“Amazing tunes from the Tropicália movement in Brazil circa 1960s; this disc features the psychedelic rock band Os Mutantes, as well as Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Bebel Gilberto. Definitely great lounging-around music!” – Daniella
Pretty Hate Machine – Nine Inch Nails
“Both poppy and abrasive, NIN’s debut album really laid the foundation for their later works. What would industrial have become without classics like ‘Head Like a Hole’? Also, ‘Terrible Lie’ proves angry can be catchy too.” – Evan
