Friday Random Ten

The Beatnigs "Jazzy Beats" The Beatnigs
Rhett Miller "The Believer" The Believer
XTC "Chalkhills and Children" Oranges & Lemons
Ani DiFranco "Shameless" Dilate
Glenn Gould "Allego molto from Sonata No 13 in E-flat major, Op. 27, No. 1" Thirty-Two Short Films about Glenn Gould
Camera Obscura "Come Back Margaret" Let's Get Out of This Country
Glenn Gould "Well Tempered Clavier, Book II, BWV 883 Fugue in F sharp minor" Partita Nos. 5 and 6
Pavement "Starlings in the Slipstream" Brighten the Corners
Van Morrison & the Chieftains "She Moved Through the Fair" Irish Heartbeat
Guster "Ruby Falls" Ganging Up on the Sun


Tom Verlaine "Shingaling" Songs and Other Things

If iTunes had to pop two Goulds, it picked a fine two. Plus the best cut from Verlaine's last, and faves by DiFranco and Pavement. Given what can happen in a random world, this isn't so bad.

We've got a mini-run on Langhorne Slim. That's always nice to see. He's touring, btw. I'm seeing him May 1 at the tiny IOTA in Arlington, VA. Should be fun.

Such lists!

I'm not as exotic as some but I love a deep groove.

Tom, when you hit Link Wray, I was done.
