Less talk, more...rock? today.
Negativland, "Seat Bee Sate"
This is another track from an Over The Edge compilation, this time Volume 8: Sex Dirt. Still nonsense, of course.
Pinkerton really is their best album, y'all. I still don't know why I have four of their albums.
Broken Social Scene, "Lover's Spit"
Another good song from Broken Social Scene. I guess I have to pay more attention to them, huh? We're all learning around here! I'm learning I like bands I already own music to, and you're all learning that Five Songs is run by a dumbass!
This is the same song. Dumbassery abounds.
Polvo, "Missing Receipts"
Just some fuckin' around from Polvo.
Wilco, "Dark Neon"
This comes from one of my favorite latter day Wilco albums, Wilco (The Album), and also appears on the rarities collection Alpha Mike Foxtrot in a slightly different version. It's a good song, I wish they'd explore this sound further.
(NB: there are subtle differences between the versions, and this one is slightly different from the one I listened to.)
Jean Grae & Quelle Chris, "Waiting For The Moon"
Two underground hip-hop stars got together this year for a collaboration, Everything's Fine, and it's considerably better than fine. I wasn't actually familiar with Quelle Chris before this album, but I've been listening to Jean Grae for a while, so I was excited to get a new album from her. And it's really excellent, one of my favorites of the year so far.
