The Dillinger Escape Plan, "43% Burnt"

I dunno, I'm 100% burnt now!

Neutral Milk Hotel, "April 8th"

I learned about a podcast called Neutral Cider Hotel the other day, and I have to say, I was probably way more amused than I should have been.

Superchunk, "Break the Glass"

Despite being a huge fan of Superchunk from the release of No Pocky For Kitty, I never once managed to catch them in concert until the tour for this record, 26 years after I started listening to them. And you know what? It was a total delight. I was just entranced watching Mac do his thing up there. I wish I could have seen them more often, but at least I got there once.

Mary Wells, "My Guy"

Hard to get more 1964 than this tune, honestly. How can you resist this? I wonder what my kids would do if I started playing a lot of Motown around the house?

Critical Mass, "Give It Up, Let It Go"

Title track on their 1997 album, this is yet another forgotten late-90s third wave ska release. And, it's fine, but I don't think it's outstanding in any way that I'd suggest tracking it down.
