28) "The Mid-Morning Recording"             Declan McKenna-'Zeros'
I recently bought a copy of this 2020 album, and it has certainly become an album that I've listened to a lot in 2021. This is Declan's second album, and I'm still surprised that he's not bigger in the music world already. This album is so strong and you can tell that he poured his heart and soul into the recording of it. There's a bit of glam rock in there ala Bowie and T-Rex, and also some attention to arrangment details ala Jeff Lynne and E.L.O. There is a bit of other influences as well. I do love the spacey atmospheric anthems, and this album is not short on those. The single "Be An Astronaut" has become one of my favorite songs of all-time really. It's pretty perfect. The whole album is well crafted, and almost any song could be a single. Certainly looking forward to seeing him perform live at some point in the future. A performance to add to the bucket list. - "You said I could be just what I wanted. They said you're lying. Well, you were born to be an astronaut and you'll do that or die trying. What a way to live and die" - Michael - MFL

32) "The Mid-Morning Recording"     Everything but the Girl-'Walking Wounded'
A bit surprised we hadn't played any album from Everything but the Girl before. I like several of their albums, but I think I like this one even a little more than what many would consider their masterpiece with "Amplified Heart". This is where Ben Watt really turned to electronic and downtempo tones which matched Tracey Thorn's voice so well. Like so many great bands of the mid to late 80's, I was introduced to EbtG through a soundtrack to a John Hughes film. I had heard a few tunes from them on MTV and college radio, and I liked pretty much everything I heard from them. However, I really started paying attention to the duo after Tracey collaborated with Massive Attack for their masterpiece "Protection". Dance remixes of singles from their 1994 album "Amplified Heart" propelled the band into a bigger audience, especially in the U.S., so they were getting played more and more. "Walking Wounded" completely reflects these collaborations with electronic artists of the early to mid-90's. I can certainly appreciate a band that evolves. This was also their highest selling album in the U.S. Going back to 1996 for this one. (Shouts out to Ross for providing his digital copy of the album to play on the show. I have a vinyl copy that he also gave me.) - "Tonight I feel above the law, I'm coming into land" - Michael - MFL
