Snobcast: For Fans Of Maudlin Music

Written by  //  February 19, 2009  //  The Conservatory  //  No comments



I put this Snobcast together a couple months back but never had time to post. Not all the songs here would fall under the term maudlin but the title track to Camera Obscura’s great new album My Maudlin Career is the cornerstone of this month’s Snobcast. Trouble Andrew brings the mood up a bit with a remix of Santigold’s “Shove It”.

The next block of songs are anchored by three hood internet bangers and two uber-electropop-earworms in the form of “Kalemba (Wegue Wegue)” and “That Beep”. After Kanye West and the Chicago Bears jam with Wilco, New Order comes in with “Dream Attack” to kill the dance feelings.

From there the emotion meter is set back to sentimental by the king of weepy himself, Morrissey. That maudlin feeling lasts until close to the end when Tribe steps in to snap us out of it, if just a little bit.

Finally, I end this month with something rarely heard on the Snobcast, reggae. So ’til next month, keep listening.
