Album Oriented 89: Air and Sleater Kinney

Album Oriented has made it to the 80s of our two top 100 lists! You know what that means, don’t you? We’re living in the 80s! Like Killing Joke, by day we run and by day we dance. We do. Erich takes us on a Moon Safari, the 1998 album by Air, the electronic French duo, aka Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel. EDM, IDM, and paying actual money to watch people behind turntables and/or a laptop is discussed. Daniel gets his riot grrrl gear on and discusses Sleater Kinney’s 1997 masterpiece, Dig Me Out. Erich’s Mid-Year Kicker Pick from the 1997-1998 era will be as elliptical and retro-futurist as our listeners might expect.
