Death From Above 1979, "Black History Month (Josh Homme Remix)"
Death From Above 1979 made only one proper album during their initial run, but there was also a remix album. Which is as inessential as basically every other remix album. There is something interesting about Josh Homme doing a remix of a dance punk band's song, but eh.
Robustos, "Nigel Thornhill"
Totally forgotten third wave ska act the Robustos had even been basically forgotten by me up until this moment.
I like the trumpet.
The Skoidats, "The Tempest"
Totally forgotten third wave ska act the Skoidats had even been basically forgotten by me up until this moment.
Hang on, I have two albums from them?
The Four Tops, "Love Has Gone"
Oh thank god. The Four Tops are, of course, one of the pillars of Motown, and have tons of recognizable hits. This song comes to us from 1964.
Mudhoney, "If I Think"
A track from Mudhoney's classic debut EP, Superfuzz Bigmuff (named after their two favorite guitar effects pedals), which later appeared on a compilation along with a couple of their early singles. I think that this record is the quintessential grunge record, and if I could suggest only one thing to listen to to get the sense of grunge, this is it.
