Queens of the Stone Age, "You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like A Millionaire"

This is one of those songs where that little opening background riff will just pop into my head and stay there for hours and hours, just looping. It's not unpleasant! This album just smokes, front to back.

Gorilla Biscuits, "(Untitled Hidden)"

I think I've introduced this old-ass straight-edge hardcore band before, so instead, I'll just mention that they contributed personnel to Quicksand, which we heard from yesterday. As for the track itself, on my copy of Start Today, there is a series of little sub-10 second "songs" which are indistinguishable and unnamed. And, because of stupid tech limitations, I can't tell which one this is. So, I'll do another song today.

Drums & Tuba, "No Accomodation For Buffalo"

Pretty much what it says on the tin. Let's be totally honest: there's nowhere near enough tuba in music. The noble tuba has been relegated almost entirely to marching bands and oompah bands, and that's not right! We deserve its flatulent majesty in everything!

The Flaming Lips, "Sagittarius Silver Announcement"

I think every Flaming Lips album from The Soft Bulletin on has sounded like a high-concept record, even when they haven't necessarily been. Embryonic is no exception. Because it didn't really produce any big hits, it doesn't seem like anybody really brings it up, but it's a solid album, one that rewards some repeated listens.

Ugly Duckling, "Another Samba"

"A Little Samba" is probably my favorite Ugly Duckling song, but this remix/reimagining from a bonus disc for Journey to Anywhere just can't quite keep up with the original.

Screeching Weasel, "I Love To Hate"

I think you can guess what this song is going to sound like just from the description, but "Love to hate, I love to hate / deck the halls with Sharon Tate" is kind of brilliant in its own lowbrow way.
