Touché Amoré, "Limelight"

Now, I'm kinda sitting here wondering what it would sound like if Touché Amoré covered Rush. Or the other direction! Maybe a split single, with them covering each other. I'd listen to that.

Harvey Milk, "Brown Water"

Just had Harvey Milk the other day, this is nice. Well, not nice exactly. It's nice they came up again? Anyway, it seems like I don't even see much discussion of the band, they don't seem to be anybody's touchstone or point of comparison. I guess I don't really know why that is, except that I suppose I don't ever reference them either. Anyway, this record (Courtesy and Good Will Toward Men) is excellent, you should listen to it.

Kool & the Gang, "Winter Sadness"

To my ears, Spirit of the Boogie is the last essential Kool & the Gang record. As they moved away from funk and more towards disco, they stopped clicking with me, but that still leaves a half-dozen or so great records.

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, "Tralfamadore"

It's never not funny.

Drive Like Jehu, "Do You Compute"

A masterpiece. Old farts like me won't shut up about Drive Like Jehu, and in my defense, they extremely rule and I'm right to not shut up about them. If Drive Like Jehu isn't playing, the other people in the room should be asking "why is Drive Like Jehu not playing?"
