Album of the week

The 1975 - Notes On A Conditional Form

This is an album I expect people will talk about. An emotion stirring arrangement of Greta Thunberg speaking over a minimal soundscape. I imagine as I listen half remembered scenes from Fern Gully: The Last Rainforest and Pink Floyd's The Wall: crumbling ecospheres giving way to dystopian smoke stacks. But thats just the first track. After that a rock hard punk track brings the energy level back to the top.

The diversity on this album is what locked it in my mind as shoe in for this week. However, the truth is there was just so much good music released this week that I've decided to implement a Runners Up section for each week. I haven't quite figured out what that means today, but check back soon for more from this week, future weeks, and perhaps even a retcon of sorts.
