1983

Album Rock

Machine-driven blues rock made by unshaven dum dums sounded like the worst idea ever in 1983 and it still sounds that way 50 years later. Still, ZZ Top made it work because the songs were genius-level stupid, sneakily underplayed and catchier than beard lice.

As Heard on Radio Soulwax, Pt. 2

June 18, 2002

Club/Dance

This glorious mashup from 2002 is a killer party starter. Tossing classics from ELO, the Velvet Underground, the Stooges, Dolly Parton, New Order, Salt-N-Pepa, and the Breeders into a blender with Peaches, Destiny's Child, Royksopp, Skee-Lo, Basement Jaxx, and many more, the Soulwax duo crafted a mix that stands tall fifteen years later. The Belgian siblings new Soulwax release, From Deewee, is a perfect reason to revisit this early aughts classic.
