A cool, often cold, sound created in the 1970s (thanks Kraftwerk, Bowie, Devo, Moroder, Vangelis, Jarre, and Roxy), synth pop ended up defining the ‘80s with a mix of percolating bloops, sublimated emotions and robotic dance moves. A few US groups got into the act but it was a UK-dominated field and ended up working its way into various genres, from new wave, neuro and post-punk to electro-funk, rap and today’s electro-pop. In our MU Synth Pop playlist, we collect the genre’s defining songs by artists like New Order, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Pet Shop Boys and more.

Listen to the MU Synth Pop Playlist.

Madden 15: Friday Night Gamers

With the beginning of the NFL season and the new Madden 15 game released last Friday, it’s all about football this week. Check out this week’s Friday Night Gamers playlist full of tunes to get you pumped for the big game.

Intro to…House

With roots in both the deepest, funkiest disco cuts as well as the coldest machine-driven electronic sounds, house music has emerged as one of the driving musical sounds on the planet. Indoctrinate yourself in the healing way of house music with this selection of classics and new dance-floor killers.

Remembering Gerald Wilson

Composer, arranger, bandleader and musician Gerald Wilson enriched the swing, bop, soul-jazz and fusion eras and collaborated with everyone from Ray Charles and Sarah Vaughan to Duke Ellington and the biggest jazz musicians on the West Coast. Wilson composed everything to classical works and Hollywood scores but his greatest love was jazz, which he devoted his artistic life to from the 1930s until his passing in 2014.

1959 Rewind

Popular music was wide open in 1959 with radio stations finding equal space for Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash and Dave Brubeck. R&B and doo-wop were now mainstream pop (even Bo Diddley’s pre-rap jam “Say Man” became his biggest hit) while the likes of Miles Davis, Bill Evans, and Jimmy Smith were creating the sound of the ‘60s.

New Releases, September 2014

Holy cow! What a huge week for new music – tracks from Robert Plant, Weezer, Ryan Adams, Interpol and so many more. Don’t miss the EP of doo-wop-inspired pop from chart sensation Meghan Trainor.

Emo Deep Dive

Originally an offshoot of hardcore punk in the ’80s, emo has developed into a hugely popular genre with plenty of mainstream success. Bands Jimmy Eat World and Taking Back Sunday fuse aggressive indie rock and raw feelings and have ended up in the Billboard charts. Not bad for a genre whose roots lay in the music of Black Flag and Minor Threat.

Rock and Roll Stories_Marley_p212_1.jpg

Bob Marley’s musical life started in the soulful grooves of ska and rocksteady, finding his voice in early cuts with The Wailers. That voice developed into something more commanding and genre-defining as he found the right mixture of political outrage and soul-searching spirituality. He became the de facto reggae ambassador, blessed with an amazing backing band, timeless songs and a spellbinding live presence. Decades after his death, his legend as the ultimate dreadlocked rasta has only grown.

Listen to the Bob Marley MU Icon Playlist.
