Pixies, "Here Comes Your Man"

A classic. Also a member of the group of songs where I can play both the bass and drums for it.

Fugazi, "Waiting Room (version)"

Another classic! Sounding like my dorm room in here today. Except this isn't from 7 Songs, it's the demo version from First Demo, which is a huge amount of fun if you're a big Fugazi fan. Which I am!

Andrew Bird, "Polynation"

Goddamn! Really hitting some of my favorite artists here! However, this is a just a little interstitial tune from Break It Yourself.

Witch Ripper, "Swarm"

Seattle's own Witch Ripper here, throwing out some serious sludge for their 2018 full-length Homestead. I enjoy supporting local acts, and this record really rocks pretty hard. And Witch Ripper is a hell of a good metal name.

Simon & Garfunkel, "The Only Living Boy In New York"

Simon & Garfunkel is another one of those acts that is probably not worth dwelling overmuch on, as far more has been written by far more talented writers than me. So I'll just note that this is such a sweet tune, it's hard to see how you could resist it.
