Led Zeppelin, "D'yer Mak'er"
Little known band out of the UK, Zeppelin presaged...uh, sorry, I can't do this.
Grandaddy, "Jed's Other Poem (Beautiful Ground)"
I really only have a couple things to say about most bands, and I'm legitimately terrified of just repeating them. Individual bands mostly don't come up often enough for me to really remember what I've said before, and goodness knows I don't go back and read previous entries before writing something. I'm not going anywhere here with this. I'm mostly just positing that I'm just a bag of random associations doing a stimulus/response over here, and I'm constantly concerned that I'm going to be revealed to be the worthless hack that I am at any moment.
Rocket From The Crypt, "Who Let The Snakes In?"
Fuck, that synth part is goddamn great. It reminds me of the deliriously wonderful "Manchasm" by Future of the Left. And yes, I paused making this entry to go listen to that tune before continuing. And then I came back to this song. Life is good!
Booker T. & the MGs, "One Who Really Loves You"
One of the fun things Booker T & the MGs did was put lots of covers on their albums. Hell, they covered all of Abbey Road once. So, this is the Smokey Robinson tune (recorded by Mary Wells), but with that MGs sound on it.
Rilo Kiley, "A Better Son/Daughter"
Have we had Rilo Kiley before? I'm not sure we have. Again, I'll be damned if I'm going to look! That sounds like work! Anyway, they were good.
