Earl Sweatshirt, "Grief"

Odd Future was a whole thing that is one of the earliest pop culture things that I might have liked but that I feel totally missed me. I know some vague things about it, that Tyler, the Creator was kind of the center, and that Frank Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt were involved. But, I dunno, I guess the rest of it all just sailed right past me. That said, I really like Earl Sweatshirt's stuff, so I probably should go back and listen to Odd Future. I mean, if there are records with the collective on it. I dunno, man, I'm out of touch here.

Dead Kennedys, "Hellnation"

While I would come to realize Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables was their best record, the first Kennedys album that I really figured out was Frankenchrist. I think the variation in musical styles on the album let fifteen-year-old Josh have an entry point into the record. These days, I don't listen to it much, but I should fix that.

Fog, "Fuckedupfuckfuckup"

A bit of electronic weirdness, I'm pretty sure I just got this because I was a big fan of Ninja Tune records at the time. I dunno, I appreciate oddball stuff, but I never really listened to this much even at the time.

Amon Tobin, "Bridge"

Yeah, Amon Tobin is in fact a big reason why I was a Ninja Tune fan.

Actually, hang on, ignore all that. Let's go with: inside you, there are two Ninja Tunes...

The Coup, "Outro"

Just a little reprise of the intro, a tiny morsel of funk for you.
