With credits like “Miami Vice” and Live Aid, Phil Collins personified the ’80s. Even so, let’s not write off the former Genesis front man.
After the Smiths, he worked with a number of artists – Bernard Sumner, Modest Mouse, to name two but now one of Britain’s seminal guitarists finally makes a name for himself as a singer-songwriter.
Andy Partridge and Colin Moulding weren’t the only XTC members who could write catchy pop-punk tunes. Keyboardist Barry Andrews has built a solid rep on his own with Shriekback and their new album “Why Anything? Why This?” is totally delightful.
This Grammy-winner has drummed for Fleet Foxes and written for Lady Gaga. Now, under his priestly pseudonym, Josh Tillman is releasing his fourth album (which is serving up some psychedelia).
This British folk singer has been compared to both Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen – but he has a tongue-in-cheek quality that’s unlike his elders.
