PoPTV – SONGS FROM THE NEW MILLENNIUM

New-Mill

During a discussion with a student about pop music – which revolved mainly around me dissing modern pop – Raj (that’s his name) challenged me to cite worthy music from the new millennium (he was born in the late 90s, after all) and so, here are ten examples (and yes, many of these artists started before the year 2000, but why should that matter?). Enjoy.

BECK – THE GOLDEN AGE (2002)

JAYHAWKS – TROUBLE (2003)

THE FLAMING LIPS – YOSHIMI BATTLES THE PINK ROBOTS PT. 1 (2002)

NADA SURF – BEAUTIFUL BEAT (2008)

JOE PERNICE – PRINCE VALIUM (2001)

ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA – ORDINARY DREAM (2001)

WILCO – HATE IT HERE (2007)

KEANE – DISCONNECTED (2012)

THE SHINS – KNOW YOUR ONION (2001)

MAX JURY – CHRISTIAN EYES (2014)

… still there’s more …
