Fake Empire
by The National
(183 plays) | (2 fans)

On this day in 2008, the single Fake Empire was released from The National's fourth studio album. The song is a commentary on a generation lost to disillusion and apathy. Vocalist Matt Berringer explained to The Quietus that it is about "where you can't deal with the reality of what's really going on, so let's just pretend that the world's full of bluebirds and ice skating." https://bit.ly/30edUVK Watch The National perform this song live at the Sydney Opera House: https://youtu.be/rzpC1AzO84Q

Push
by The Cure
(94 plays) | (1 fan)

During promotion for the record, Robert Smith stated that it was inspired by the albums Kaleidoscope by Siouxsie and the Banshees and Dare by the Human League. He wanted the album to be eclectic with different styles and moods: "It reminds me of the Kaleidoscope album, the idea of having lots of different sounding things, different colours." This album marks the return of Simon Gallup in the group; he had performed and composed with Robert Smith and Lol Tolhurst on the dark trilogy Seventeen Seconds, Faith and Pornography. Guitarist Porl Thompson, who had played guitar during the very early days of the band, and also played keyboards and saxophone during The Top tour, became an official member. Drummer Boris Williams, who had previously worked with Thompson Twins, finally joined the ensemble after playing with the band during the US leg of the 1984 tour. https://bit.ly/2giJFnb
