5ive Style, "Father Time"

Composed of folks from various post-rock bands such as Tortoise and Isotope 217, 5ive Style are themselves very post-rock themselves. They have a looser, groovier kind of vibe compared to their parent bands, however. Overall, their two albums are both pretty fun.

Chemical People, "I Gotta Know"

From their self-titled record. It's kind of funny to listen to this stuff now. It's a little hard to see exactly what I saw in this back in the day. This song is just a by-the-numbers tribute to really old rock. It's fine?

(NB: the song starts at 28:20.)

J Church, "Asha Blake"

Even a tossed off J Church song sounds more genuine than the last track, for instance. Yes, the recording on this is a mess, but it doesn't matter, it's still a more engaging listen.

The Coup, "Foul Play"

Another track from Kill My Landlord, this was when the Coup wasn't quite as funky as they would get. It's still good stuff, though.

Negativland, "The Piddle Diddle Report: A Future Confronting The Past Which Is Our Future, Last Call From Howland Island, Eaten by a Black Hole, Returned to your Rightful Channel"

Sometimes, I wonder about myself.
