Friday Random Ten

Patty Loveless "Sounds of Loneliness" Songcatcher
Buena Vista Social Club "Orgullecida" Buena Vista Social Club
Brian Eno "Ali Click" (Darkly Mad Mix) Ali Click ep
Sleater-Kinney "Funeral Song" One Beat
Tommy Page "I'll Be Your Everything" Just Say Sire: The Sire Records Story
Pavement "Grounded" Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain: L.A.'s Desert Origins
Lloyd Cole & the Commotions "From the Hip" 1984-1989
Built to Spill "Car" There's Nothing Wrong with Love
Gumball "Butterfly Potion" Wisconsin Hayride
My Morning Jacket "Anytime" Z

The Clash "Ghetto Defendant" Clash on Broadway

Built to Spill takes the best of show prize--all that great guitar and a wonderful woozy lyric--then there's an odd take on some elsewhere better presented Pavement, a raucous Eno remix, solid Sleater-Kinney and Lloyd Cole.

But that Tommy Page. I've got a lot of digging to do to get out of that uncool hole.

Langhorne Slime? Well that's unfair. Creativity is not oozy, Marty. Or a matter of muck.

My bad, Ahab. Apparently the typo, which had nothing to do with Langhorne Slim (one of the gems, actually), was more prescient of the flu I've started to come down with this weekend.

I'm touchy when it comes to Langhorne, Marty, that's all.

Hope you're feeling better soon. Or that you at least get some time off out of the deal.
