Boogie, "Save Me"

God only knows how I heard about this, which is the debut from Boogie but was self-released. Therefore it's a surprise that it found its way to my old, out-of-touch ass. It's good, though, kind of sunny with the beats and with contemplative lyrics.

Webbed Wing, "Perfect"

I think this is a record that a friend told me about, maybe they knew someone in it? I'm having trouble recalling, but they're from Philly, so it's a decent bet. Anyway, assuming that that's correct, you all should get this!

The Four Tops, "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)"

A repeat, but I'm not going to complain.

Iron Maiden, "Run To The Hills"

Number of the Beast, man. Maiden's breakout album, powered by Bruce Dickinson's arrival, featured some of their iconic songs. At the front of that group is probably this one, a dramatization of the conquest of Native Americans complete with their trademark gallop and soaring vocals. I'm required to use the word "gallop" when describing Maiden.

Ugly Duckling, "Left Behind"

An urgent pace, a fun piano loop, and some mic trading makes this song one of the highlights of Bang for the Buck. The high spots on this album are just plain fun, although when the songs aren't hitting they wind up feeling pretty repetitive.

Piss Vortex, "Those Who Labor"

I try and throw in an extra track when I spot a repeat (although I forgot to do that with the Bricks song the other day). Today, that extra song is 44 seconds of grindcore mayhem. Enjoy!

(Feels sacrilegious to have Piss Vortex and the Four Tops in the same playlist.)
