Strategies Against Architecture Album Club got its name from Einstürzende Neubauten and we're finally going to discuss their first album this week. The album was recommended by jackhammer:

Let's have fun! It's Pop Week!

"Pop music (a term that originally derives from an abbreviation of "popular") is usually understood to be commercially recorded music, often oriented towards a youth market, usually consisting of relatively short, simple songs utilizing technological innovations to produce new variations on existing themes. Pop music has absorbed influences from most other forms of popular music, but as a genre is particularly associated with the rock and roll and later rock style..." (Wiki)
What are your favorite pop songs? I'm sure you have them, you music snobs

It's Ska Week!

"Ska marked the true beginning of Jamaican popular music, coming to prominence during the early and mid-'60s right around the time the island was granted its independence. Ska ensembles were generally a blend of electric instrumentation and horns most popular in jazz (saxophone, trumpet, trombone). Although structurally simple, ska has a bevy of influences, synthesizing American R&B, jump blues, Jamaican mento, calypso and other Caribbean styles, big-band swing, Afro-Cuban jazz, pocomania and other local religious folk music, and European ballroom dances. Of those, the first three -- R&B, jump blues, and mento -- were the most important building blocks." (Allmusic)
Which one of the three waves of ska do you listen the most? Share your favorite songs here:

It's Folk Punk Week!

Like the name suggests, folk punk is a music genre that blends elements of folk music with punk rock. It may appear like an unlikely marriage at first glance, but on closer look these two music styles have a lot in common. Both are a sort of peoples music, simple, authentic and accessible, very often rebellious, with an independent mindset. From this point of view punk can be seen as a kind of urban folk. So when punks add banjos, violins, accordions etc to their electric guitars, it only seems natural. Let's post some great songs here:

ジェイポップ!! It's J-Pop Week!

"J-pop, an abbreviation for Japanese pop, is a loosely-defined musical genre that entered the musical mainstream of Japan in the 1990s. Modern J-pop has its roots in 1960s music such as The Beatles. The term was coined by the Japanese media to distinguish Japanese music from foreign music, and now refers to most Japanese popular music." (Wiki)
So, how many j-pop bands and performers do you know?
