Kate Bush - Hounds of Love (1985)

For Trevor's first pick of 2021 for an album that has "been around awhile," he chooses Kate Bush's 1985 album "Hounds of Love." This is Bush's 5th studio album and shows her expanding her use of the Fairlight synthesizer creating lush landscapes on an album with two distinct halves. The first side of the album, also called "Hounds of Love," depicts love and communication between men and women, mother and son, and father and son drawing upon literature and interweaving audio clips from movies which she drew inspiration. The second half, titled "The Ninth Wave," is a concept album about a woman lost at sea floating alone with nothing but her imagination and a small light on her life preserver. Shane and Trevor have fun unpacking these lyrics but also just enjoy the music of the innovative queen of art pop herself. They also discover that much to Trevor's jealousy, Shane has Kate's phone number and periodically texts her when he has questions about the album...or so he says.
