Sounding Out Pop : Analytical Essays in Popular Music Paperback / softback
This title brings together a diverse collection of voices to explore a broad spectrum of popular music.
The nine essays in ""Sounding Out Pop"" work together to map the myriad styles and genres of the pop-rock universe through detailed case studies that confront the music from a variety of engaging, thought-provoking perspectives - from historical to music-analytic, aesthetic to ethnographic, with several authors drawing liberally from ideas in other disciplines.
The bands and artists covered are as vast and varied as the fifty-year history of popular music, from the Coasters and Roy Orbison to Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, Beck, Genesis, Tori Amos, and the Police.
Together these diverse essays cover a broad spectrum of studies ideally suited for classroom use and for other readers interested in gaining a deeper knowledge of the way popular music works.
