The Mars Volta, "Eriatarka"

I say this with genuine love, I really do enjoy the Mars Volta, but this is just the most dork-ass band ever, isn't it? That's not a bad thing necessarily, but even if you really like the band, it's impossible to not recognize that the correct location for them is inside a locker.

No Age, "Glitter"

When I got this album on release day, Sonic Boom had some Sub Pop shirts to give away to people who bought it. But by the time I got it, they were down to just, like, toddler shirts. So, in the most []("cool dad raising daughter on media that will put her entirely out of touch with her generation") moment I've ever had, I stuck it on my oldest and then took a photo of her holding the CD (she was baffled but game). I hope I have the photo somewhere, it's very stupid.

Uniform, "Alone In The Dark"

Like old Unsane, squared.

Public Enemy, "Tie Goes To The Runner"

Public Enemy's 1992 release, Greatest Misses, is a forgotten record. Released pretty quickly after Apocalypse '91...The Enemy Strikes Black, it was half new songs and half remixes. The remixes really kind of hurt the release in my memory, as they're unnecessary. If it had been released as an EP with just the new tracks, I think I'd probably even consider it a decent extention of PE's golden period. As it is, though, it's a flawed release, but I recommend having a listen and then just stopping after the first six tracks.

Fishbone, "Bonin' in the Boneyard"

Partyin' 80s style! Hard not to be charmed by the pure energy here.
