The Time Machine stops in 2006 this time. The year the world first learned of Amy Winehouse. We were all whistling along to “Young Folks” by the Swedish trio Peter Bjorn and John. There were big debuts from Lupe Fiasco,  Lily Allen, and Arctic Monkeys, who released the fastest selling debut album in UK chart history. Guitars were still in style with albums from The Hold Steady, and the sorta supergroup the Raconteurs. It’s 2006, our year on Time Machine.
