The Flaming Lips, "Turn It On"

I tend to listen to the albums from Soft Bulletin on more than anything, but that's kind of a mistake. The Ronald Jones albums (he left after Clouds Taste Metallic) are a different beast than the more symphonic stuff later, but that extra crunch goes really nice. This is a great tune! Now, if you go prior to In A Priest Driven Ambulence, you're really getting some dodgy stuff, but this era (this is the opener to 1993's Transmissions From the Satellite Heart) has lots to recommend it.

The Slackers, "Minha Menina"


Bosse-de-Nage, "The Industry Of Distance"

I'll spare you all the repeat lecture from yesterday! Bosse-de-Nage is from San Francisco, also home to Deafheaven, making San Francisco something of a hot spot for bands playing around with the black metal formula. Bosse-de-Nage is much closer to the metal end of things than Astronoid is, but definitely play with influences from non-metal places. There are aspects of this tune that sound more hardcore than black metal, for example.

Beck, "Nausea"

Say what you want about Beck, he can certainly put together a fine groove.

The New Golden Ring, "Sam Gone Away"

I don't know a lot about the background of this, other than I believe it comes from the folk community that Megan's family has been involved with for a long time. A nice change of pace from the usual noise around here!
