Simon & Garfunkel, "Cecilia"

I know that it is, literally, Boomer-ass music, but Bridge Over Troubled Water is really very good. Can I call this song a jam? I think it might be a jam.

The Scorpions & Saif Abu Bakr, "Forssa Saeeda فرصة سعيدة"

Speaking of jams! Also, it's time for Petty Grievances With Josh: there was no way I was going to figure out how to type that, but stupid Plex won't let me copy and paste song titles from it directly. I had to inspect the element in Chrome and copy it out of there! What kind of hell is this!

MAGAS, "Chicagocide"

This record came to me when Radio Shock did a thread on Twitter highlighting some noise artists during one of the Bandcamp days. And, sure, I'm always down for some noise. It's pretty fun, why not!

Steely Dan, "East St. Louis Toodle-Oo"

Sometimes we're all over the map, and sometimes we're really all over the map.

I was playing this album in the car the other day, and the boy had fun trying to identify the various instruments. I got to talk about sound effects with him, so that was a good time, he really shows a lot of curiosity about sound and music.

J-Zone, "Stick Up"

This is a track from the last J-Zone rap album, Fish-n-Grits, which is notable primarily for his smoking drums. This track in particular really pointed towards the Du-Rites, which is the band he would form after this album was released, and where he's playing still.
