Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, "You Spin Me Round '86"

The rare Shadowy Men track with a voice on it! Very little, mind you, but judged on a curve, it's a ton.

Pond, "Magnifier"

Great stuff so far today! I've sung the praises of Pond repeatedly in this space, but seriously: this album (The Practice Of Joy Before Death) totally rules. If you want to listen to more, you can hit up the tag, but just fire up the album.

Wilson Pickett, "In The Midnight Hour"

Hell yeah. A stone cold soul classic, you've all heard this before. This is his first big hit, a #1 record, with the Stax house band backing him up here.

Lightning Bolt, "Caught Deep In The Zone"

Well, that's jarring. This wave of mostly formless noise is from the first, self-titled Lightning Bolt album, when they were still kind of sorting themselves out. Really kind of for completists.

Polvo, "Tragic Carpet Ride"

One of the EPs that Polvo put out in the mid 90s, during their peak period, this is from Celebrate The New Dark Age. This really captures them in all their twisty glory, and if you like this, you should really seek out a bunch of Polvo stuff.
