Pink Floyd, "Eclipse"

I know that Pink Floyd is probably regarded as hopelessly stodgy and dad-ish by people today, avatars of the leaden excesses of 70s rock that sparked punk. And, yeah, this is some ornate shit and all. But dammit, I love it, I sincerely do, whether because it was largely inescapable growing up in Spokane or just because I am also stodgy and dad-ish.

Logh, "The Smoke Will Lead You Home"

I got this as part of a Hydra Head album grab bag, and it's awfully different from the usual Hydra Head fare. This is really more on the emo side of the fence than anything else. It's pleasant enough, I suppose.

Helm, "Capital Crisis (New City Loop)"

Helm is an experimental project of Luke Younger, with a series of abstract and often pretty ambient records to his name. This, for instance, is the kickoff to his 2019 record, Chemical Flowers, so you know, he's not really jumping in with big energy. But it's usually interesting stuff, for the right mood.

The Notorious B.I.G., "B.I.G. (Interlude)"

It's an interlude. What is there to say? It leads into "Mo Money Mo Problems" where Biggie absolutely blows Mase and Puffy out of the water.

Einstürzende Neubauten, "Abfackeln!"

Yeah, baby! Time for some old Neubauten! The best part? My buddy and I who were both big into Neubauten both agreed when we first heard it that Zeichnungen Des Patienten O.T. (the second Neubauten album, at least as we understood it) was a considerable step forward in tunefulness from Kollaps. Anyway, this is awesome, groundbreaking stuff, Neubauten rules now and forever.
