Radiohead, "True Love Waits"

Hmm. I guess maybe Radiohead used Conlon Nancarrow?

Elvis Costello, "(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea"

A friend used to do a bit where he'd refer to song titles or whatever with synonyms or just slightly wrong words, and it always killed me. Two of his titles from This Year's Model always stuck with me. "Inflate It" and this one, "Chelsea (Fuck It)".

Report Suspicious Activity, "Goldstein"

Yup, that's J Robbins in yet another one of his bands that put out a couple albums before calling it good. It's a good one, but that's kind of redundant. Where does it rank in the list of bands? Probably below Burning Airlines and Jawbox, but probably above Office of Future Plans and Channels.

Windhand, "Pilgrim's Rest"

We don't really call bands grunge bands if they didn't exist outside of one very specific scene. But, maybe that's kind of bogus. I think you could make a case for Windhand being pretty grunge. Jack Endino producing this record is, of course, a good head start towards the sound. But this tune could easily have sat alongside plenty of classic grunge records. Let's bring it back, people!

Rainer Maria, "Ears Ring"


Joshua Buergel
