Earl Van Dyke, "Soul Stomp"

We're in 1964 here, with a well-named song, as this really is quite a stomp. The organ is just fantastic.

The Beastie Boys, "Fight For Your Right"

I think that more than half of the times in my life that I've wound up in some stranger's car, aimlessly wandering towards or away from a party, either this album or Paul's Boutique was playing. It's basically the soundtrack to unfocused teenage ennui to me.

The Mars Volta, "Drunkship of Lanterns"

I think this might be my favorite song on Deloused in the Comatorium. Which, I swear to god, is the first time I've ever read that album title properly. I had always read it as "Crematorium", because I'm a breathtaking dumbass.

Gojira, "Space Time (Live)"

Gojira's first album, Terra Incognita, is the least interesting thing they've put out. It really sounds far too much like Pantera for my tastes. This just doesn't really do that much for me. I actually sort of ignored the band for years after this record until the good reviews wore me down for The Way of All Flesh, which is much more interesting.

Chaser, "Coda"

An artist last year was posting some of their favorite noise from Bandcamp while the site was doing a fundraiser for trans rights, and so I picked up some stuff. And it was all pretty enjoyable! Except I don't remember listening to this record. Fun freakout here, though.
