Wilco, "Kicking Television"

This take is from Alpha Mike Foxtrot, the collection of rarities, live versions, and alternate takes that covers the first twenty (!) years of Wilco. "Kicking Television" appears on a bonus EP with A Ghost Is Born, and was also the title track of a live album, so it's a familiar song from them, but this is an alternate take here.

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, "Hell"

Apparently, we're doing rarities collections today. Works for me! Bring it the fuck on!

Mayhem, "A Grand Declaration of War"

So, we've been over this before, but Mayhem: bad people! Probably shouldn't have them here, but I guess here we are.

The Skatalites, "Hanging Tree"

Much better! Let's keep that going! (Also, this is another compilation!)

Although, there's something grim about a song called "Hanging Tree" coming right after Mayhem. Let's move on!

Khruangbin with Leon Bridges, "Texas Sun"

From a delightful collaboration EP between Khruangbin and Leon Bridges, which I suppose you probably can derive from the title line there. Adding a soul singer to Khruangbin's funk grooves turns out to be a tasty match.
