Friday Random Ten

Elephant Micah "Dream Feedback" Loose 4: Start Your Own Country
Archers of Loaf "Web in Front" Icky Mettle
Shane MacGowan & The Popes "The Snake with Eyes of Garnet" The Snake
Charles Mingus "Solo Dancer" Ken Burns Jazz: Charles Mingus
Pavement "Home" Westing (By Musket and Sextant)
Emmylou Harris with Fayssoux Starling "Beneath Still Waters" The Very Best of Emmylou Harris--Heartaches and Highways
Richard Buckner "Stutterstep" Impasse
SF Seals "Still?" What's Up Matador?
John Wesley Harding "Hitler's Tears" Why We Fight
Cornershop "Coming Up" When I Was Born for the 7th Time

Richard Thompson "Why Have My Loved Ones Gone?" 1000 Years of Popular Music [live]

Lots of class, two instrumental interludes, and two killers--"Web in Front" remains one of my favorite 2 minute shots of adrenalized rock and "Hitler's Tears" is as catchy as catchy pop gets, with the classic line "he was fascist before it was cool" to boot.

Bonus: Palace Brothers, "You Will Miss Me When I Burn" Days In the Wake

Another way above average shuffle for me. I've been on a great roll lately. Elk City is a promising band I found on one of the Loose CDs or some other compilation.

This one's all over the map, with the math/goth Junius "segueing" into Joey's classic blues, 2 GBVs, parenthetical Malkmuses (early and late) and three that reflect my i-lists recent Ahabization, speaking of which, two Hayden songs have followed the random list, and I've really enjoyed that cd.

I'm really glad you like Hayden, Marty. He's one of my favorites. I'm hoping for another album from him soon. It's been like three years.
