Mix Master Mike, "Supa Wyde Laces"

We had a track from Hello Nasty yesterday, today we've got a track from the DJ that joined them with that record. Mix Master Mike was a member of the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, the most successful DJ collective around. This is from his solo record, which came out the same year as Hello Nasty, and which at the time, I liked more. Probably wouldn't be true these days.

J Church, "8:28"

It's another 1998 release! And it's yet another comp from J Church! They produced so many scattered singles, EPs, comp tracks, and other miscellaneous stuff that it made a lot of sense to gather them up every couple of years. Unlike lots of bands, they didn't reserve their best material for their "proper" albums, so the comps were no worse than any of their other releases.

Einstürzende Neubauten, "Nnnaaammm"

I know we've had this track before, but I'm still delighted.

sexual jeremy, "Big Monday Burger"

When Bandcamp was doing a giveaway for charity last year, lots of people posted interesting lists of bands. Someone was posting lists of their favorite noise rock, and this band came up. And despite the appalling band name, it's fun stuff, sounding something like Shorty hanging out with Squirrel Bait. Yes, I know nobody is going to like that reference.

The Fiery Furnaces, "Asthma Attack"

Brother and sister duo The Fiery Furnaces were one of the most explicitly artsy acts around, but this is a somewhat rare straightforward track from them.

Mighty Mighty Bosstones, "You Left Right?"

Post-fame, the Bosstones have just kept on keeping on, releasing a series of albums that have mostly escaped notice, critical or otherwise. They're mostly fine. Nothing particularly stands out, but they know what they're doing, and they travel down their well-worn groove. You really only want to end up with them after you've listened to their peak material a ton, which describes...well, me.
