This time on 14tracks:

“14 tracks: temporal pop dissolution”

This week we're talking experimental, inverted and odder songcraft, from unexpected cover versions to histrionic, beguiling wave-pop by a bunch of genuine auteurs and outsiders. It's a mixed bag of intentions and emotions full of unique accents, philosophic lyricism and twisted spirits, with a particular lean towards dissonant, anachronistic accents. At one end of the spectrum there's Bruce Springsteen's brilliantly woozy interpretation of Suicide's 'Dream Baby Dream' and Widowspeak's heart-breaking cover of 'Wicked Game', contrasting against the ambiguous passion of Autre Ne Veut and the timelessness of Patrick Burke's 'Trace By Trace', while the eternal well of Italo inspiration resonates through Fred Ventura into the cerebral synthpop of John Maus. Wheeling along the dial, we tune into the nuanced fusions of James Pants, the lo-fi craft of Ivan Mairesse and Bobb Trimble's psyche-pop, to esoteric electro from Tomutonttu and wave variations from Miracle and Tunnels, zig-zagging across the wonky fringe of outsider pop.

“Whoa”

I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd see Bruce Springsteen make it here.
