9 of the best – sounds of 1996

A compilation for the weekend. My favourite 9 sounds of 1996, the year before OK Computer, The Fat of the Land and Homework were released, wiping the sound slate clean.

Mansun – Wide Open Space

Red House Painters – Have You Forgotten

Ocean Colour Scene – The Day We Caught The Train

Wilco – Sunken Treasure

Fiona Apple – Criminal

DJ Shadow – Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt

Fugees – Ready Or Not

Chicane – Offshore


Honourable mentions also go to: Super Furry Animals for ‘If You Don’t Want Me To Destroy You‘ and ‘Hometown Unicorn‘; Primitive Radio Gods for ‘Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand‘; Eels for ‘Novocaine For The Soul‘; Mazzy Star for ‘Look On Down From The Bridge‘; Beck for ‘Where It’s At‘; and The Prodigy for ‘Breathe‘.
