Words by Teeny Lieberson

Taste always changes, especially mine. I’m constantly looking for something new that will give me something to return to. I need a good singer, a strong melody, twists, explosions, and a pulsing, ever-changing mood. Pop within the wonderful confines of the abstract. Something I can understand, but might take me a minute to do so. I can also just like a good hook.

These are a few tracks that I’ve discovered in the recent years that I keep coming back to over and over again…

Tracklist:
1. Aphex Twin, “Ageispolis”
2. Dual Split, “Miles Away”
3. Cocteau Twins, “Fifty-Fifty Clown”
4. B-52’s, “Mesopotamia”
5. Funkadelic, “Hit It And Quit It”
6. Shamir, “If It Wasn’t True”
7. Little Dragon, “Brush the Heat”
8. Luke Temple, “Florida”
9. Alice Coltrane, “Jai Rama Chandra”
