I don’t usually play my iPod on shuffle, but yesterday I did, and here are the first ten songs that I heard. A good mix for a Saturday morning.
MP3 | Refused – Refused Are Fuckin’ Dead The Shape Of Punk To Come
A fantastic little number from the band that single-handedly gave hardcore a new sound in the late 90’s. Simply revolutionary.
MP3 | Jeff Tweedy – Bob Dylan’s 49th Beard Live At The Vic
Wilco’s main man singing all by his lonesome self.
MP3 | Clor – Love + Pain S/T
This bouncy and fun song is from (IMHO) one of the most underrated albums of 2005.
MP3 | The Vandermark Five – Strata Elements Of Style…
Ken Vandermark is the king of the improv/undergound jazz scene in Chicago. Hear him roar.
MP3 | Wilderness – Emergency Vessel States
Even if they aren’t, Wilderness sounds poised to someday rule the world, musically speaking, that is.
MP3 | State River Widening – Crown Cottonhead
A good chill out song that is a little electronic and a little acoustic.
MP3 | The Blood Brothers – The Salesman, Denver Max Burn Piano Island, Burn
This band sounds like it is on the verge of falling apart at all times.
MP3 | Spoon – I Turn My Camera On Gimmie Fiction
This song just sorta makes you want to move. It makes other people want to buy a Jaguar.
MP3 | Primus – Jerry Was A Race Car Driver Sailing The Seas Of Cheese
I haven’t heard this song in forever. Its amazing what can turn up in the digital nooks and crannies of your iPod.
MP3 | Nouvelle Vague – Guns Of Brixton S/T
This is easily one of the best Clash covers that I’ve ever heard.
