The Joup Friday Album: Suede – Coming Up

Suede Coming UpThough it may seem unlikely, the arid and dusty oil town of Midland in west Texas was a hotbed for Britpop music…or at least that was the case in the bedrooms, car stereos, and headphones of my friends and me in the mid 90’s. As the once mighty grunge scene of the Pacific Northwest began to putter out, we found ourselves on a quest for a new scene, a new group of almost familial bands to nod our heads and tap our feet to. Britpop got there just in time.

The Joup Friday Album: Secret Machines – Now Here Is Nowhere

secretmachines I honestly had no idea what record I was going to write about for today’s Friday Album. Over the last several months, I’ve written and reminisced about so many different albums that are “special” to me on my 35 Albums in 35 Years weekly column, and with the final home stretch of that column now on the horizon, I was at a loss. So, to remedy my situation, I just grabbed a handful of CD’s from the shelf that I haven’t listened to in a long while and started jamming them in my car while driving to and from work. Albums that I forgot all about. Albums that time forgot. Albums I should have been paying more attention to.
