Dance Hall Crashers, "All Mine"

Oops! All harmonies!

Holy Fuck, "The Pulse"

Holy Fuck play a sort of instrumental rock that, in its use of primitive electronics and hypnotic grooves, has more than a little in common with krautrock. It's really delightful stuff, a recognition that some blips and a bitchin' beat will take you a long ways.

Idles, "Mother"

I think the last couple times Idles has come up, I've mostly waxed on about how punk this record is. And, you know - it really is. There's an immediacy and urgency to this that really calls back to the spirit of punk. This is one of those albums that just gets better the more you listen to it.

Bob Marley & The Wailers, "African Herbsman"

You know what? I'm just now realizing that I never really rolled around this summer bumping Bob Marley in the sunshine. Probably because I never really went anywhere, but that was a huge mistake! It's one of the true pleasures of the summer.

Polyrhythmics, "Lord of the Fries"

I should really put this on the stereo when I play Lord of the Fries with the kids. It will mean nothing to them at all, but it'll amuse me. And honestly, that's all I'm ever going for anyway.
