An underrated album!

Heavy

Although "This House is Condemned" would have been better left as a B-side, this is truly a wonderful album, especially if you enjoy the dance sound employed in later Pulp releases. Standout tracks for me include Love is Blind, Don't You Want Me Anymore, Down by the River, and Countdown. But my favorite is Death II. If in doubt, start with that one!

25 Bands to See at Coachella 2012

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

There is every other music festival and then there is Coachella, the California-desert weekend that, in many ways, set the template for all that followed. The first U.S. festival to boast big-ticket reunions and all-over-the-map booking, Coachella continues to maintain its distinctive, idiosyncratic personality. Needless to say, navigating such a wide array of music can be tricky. We've picked 25 acts worth making time for. more »

Icon: Pulp

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

Some artists take a while to find their mature voice, and few have taken quite as long as Pulp. Founded by singer Jarvis Cocker in 1978 as a spirited if unfocused post-punk band, they spent their first 16 years or so experimenting with styles and attitudes, releasing a slow trickle of increasingly accomplished, witty and thoughtful singles and albums that eventually came to treat desire and frustration as their prime subjects. Then, in the mid… more »

New This Week: Sleigh Bells, Frankie Rose & More

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

When it rains it pours, and this month has been a veritable flood. There are more new, great albums than I know what to do with. I need about 15 extra hours each day to listen to them all. Chances are you will, too. HERE WE GO. Sleigh Bells, Reign of Terror: This is probably where we have the discussion about how bands almost never sound good on Saturday Night Live. Artists we know are great… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Separations is the birth of the modern Pulp. Not only does the record feature the lineup that would eventually break through into the mainstream, it is the first album to contain the fusion of pop, dance, and rock that would take them to the top of the charts in the mid-’90s. More than anything, the influence of acid house and raves weighs heavily on Separations, as the band stretches out into the disco groove of “Countdown” and the long jam “This House Is Condemned.” But what is especially noticeable about Separations is how Pulp is finally starting to write some fully realized songs. “My Legendary Girlfriend,” the song that earned the band its first Single of the Week in NME, is the leader of the pack with a brilliant, sly lyric and vocal from Jarvis Cocker, and an appropriately melodic and slightly dirty instrumental backdrop from the band. “Countdown,” with its insistent beat, is nearly as good, as is the loping opener, “Love Is Blind.” Pulp isn’t able to keep the pace throughout the album — there are several weak spots, particularly the awkward stab at house, “This House Is Condemned” — but Separations is the first album that illustrates the band’s potential and exactly what it could accomplish. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
