Desert Island Discs 

by Kate Rambeau, Spokane


From dark to light, laughter to soul, these albums are essential works of art


that are integral for survival.


To start, Kind of Blue by Miles Davis is a beacon of pure genius. With a eline groove and an immaculate sense of style (not to mention John Coltrane sharing the credits), Miles channels the unspeakable to our ears.


Ready to challenge musical perceptions, Tricky's Maxinquaye is a darkly savory recipe of scratchy beats, hip-hop, working class divas and mutated soul. Guaranted you'll always hear something new upon repeated listens.


Spiraling inward, Disintegration by the Cure dreamily seduces you to the dusky side of pop music. Ulimate nightmarish enchantment.


Neil Young's After the Gold Rush will always be a classic. Here,his skillful songwriting, diverse subject matter (from aliens to hillbillies), and wounded vocals make this album the jewel in his creative crown.


And for sheer talent, storytelling and unequaled wit, might I offer Nighthawks at the Diner by Tom Waits? Hs street-wise, wise-cracking, cigarettes & amp; coffee style will leave you laughing, intelligently entertained and musically satisfied.
