The Postal Service – Give Up (Sub Pop)

I really thought someone would have already chosen this record for a previous edition of The Joup Friday Album. However, a quick search for “The Postal Service” in the search bar in the upper right column came back with nothing… so here you have it: The Joup Friday album comes from various parts of the world; The Postal Service’s only full length release on Sub Pop Records, entitled “Give Up.”

The Joup Friday Album: The Pixies – Doolittle

doolittleBeen away for a bit. Good to be back. In case you haven’t guessed from my stilted tone I’ve been drinking… and due to my trying like crazy to A) work 9 hours B) commute 2 C) edit my Twin Peaks Festival Video and D) drive to a friend’s to film a new Genesis of Preacher I’m also tired, so the 5 Downtown Browns I’ve consumed over the past 4 hours hit me like a fucking hammer and I’m realizing I volunteered to defib the Joup Friday Album at like 2 hours and 42 minutes (and counting) into Saturday. But I believe in this column, just like I believe in Mr. Grieves.

The Joup Friday Album: Jarvis Cocker – Jarvis

jarviscockerIt’s weird to think that we are rapidly approaching being 10 years removed from the first decade of the 21st century.  As a teen, the year 2000 seemed to be so far ahead, an exciting and unknowable future, and now it’s been left long behind in the proverbial dust.  I can only assume that the cultural and historical significance of that decade will begin to bubble over in essays, thinkpieces, and documentaries in the coming years, its influence slowly creeping into modern art, music, literature, and such.  But for me, it’s kind of hard to pin down what the 00’s were all about…well, musically at least.
