Jawbox, "Static"

With Novelty, Jawbox added a second guitarist to the lineup and the fuller sound really brought them to another level. While I like Grippe, this is the album where Jawbox became Jawbox. "Static" is one of my favorite songs on the album, with my fondness bolstered by the fun novelty 7" they put out as a split with Tar, where each band covered the other band's song named "Static".

Prefuse 73, "Busy Signal (Make You Go Bombing mix)"

The first minute or so of this track sounds like the feeling of holding in a sneeze.

Louis Armstrong, "When the Saints Go Marching In"

I generally don't have a lot of older jazz in my collection, as I have to draw lines somewhere. I can't listen to everything! Anyway, this comes from a career retrospective of Armstrong put out to accompany the Ken Burns documentary, and I guess I have to assume it's a decent single-disc overview. But I'm a jazz idiot, so maybe it sucks. Well, Armstrong certainly doesn't, so I guess I'm rambling.

The Fearless Flyer, "Introducing the Fearless Flyers"

I covered who the Fearless Flyers were last time, but: Vulfpeck, Snarky Puppy, other jazz projects. It's just good time intrumental funk.

Claude Fontaine, "Our Last Goodbye"

A fitting end for today.
