It’s Friday so we’re listening to something different. Today we’re revisiting some of the albums of Talk Talk frontman Mark Hollis, who passed away earlier this week at 64. Hollis made a couple pop hits and then retreated to a style that critics at the time couldn’t quite name. Spirit of Eden is brooding and cool, a free blues meditation with outbursts of rock. Hollis’s solo album, released ten years later, spans folk, pop, and free jazz. Both albums make beautiful use of silence.
Enjoy this day.
