Friday Random Ten

Danny Thompson "Idle Monday" Whatever
The Handsome Family "My Beautiful Bride" In the Air
The Wailers "Out of Our Tree" Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era
Los Lobos "The Word" Good Morning Aztlan
Charlie Parker "Hot House" Ken Burns Jazz: Charlie Parker
Calexico "Mazurka" Spoke
New Order "True Faith" Substance
The Pine Valley Cosmonauts (with Sally Timms) "Right or Wrong" The Majesty of Bob Wills
Jack Logan "Teach Me the Rules" Mood Elevator
The 6ths (with Dean Wareham) "Falling Out of Love (with You)" Wasps' Nests

Brian Eno "Out/Out" The Drop

Starts with a killer instrumental, ends with a great one from the mind of Stephin Merritt, and let's consider the 2 minute Eno coda the music over the end credits. Quite a range in here, quite a range. You could say I'm home on it.

I thought you were away from blogging for the weekend. Sneaky.

Pavement, "Sue Me Jack," Slanted and Enchanted, L & R
Tom Waits, "I'm Still Here," Alice
Buzzcocks, "Walking Distance," I Don't Mind the Buzzcocks
New Pornographers, "Jackie, Dressed in Cobras," Twin Cinema
Pavement, "Brinx Job," Wowee Zowee, SSE
Jason Richie and New Blood, "Doin' Time in the Blues Penitentiary," Live 05/06/05
Muse, "Sunburn," Showbiz
Arcade Fire, "In the Backseat," Funeral
Guided by Voices, "Wished I Was a Giant," Live in LA Video (from GBV website)
Interpol, "PDA," Turn on the Bright Lights

Bonus: Guided By Voices, "The Top Chick's Silver Chord," Tonics and Twisted Chasers

The second random ten, as I type, is sounding more appealing than the first, above. Weird list, with that "passionate and loud" (RS) Muse coming back two weeks in a row, the odd instrumental Buzzcocks, and a tasty live Jason Richie. Tom Waits sad by his piano save it for me, and the "Jackie" is good, because I can here Neko Case in the background. George's list provides a nice balance to all the classic heavy hitters today.

Good job hitting on songs I really really like that generally aren't considered folk's highlights--"Just Like You" has long had a soft spot in my heart and I like "Jackie" not just for Neko but for Dan Bejar. His songs are always highlights of NP albums.
