Friday Random Ten

Drive-By Truckers "That Man I Shot" Brighter than Creation's Dark
The Shins "Pam Berry" Wincing the Night Away
King Crimson "Inner Garden I" Thrak
Pere Ubu "Caligari's Mirror" Datapanik in the Year Zero: 1978-1979
Sonny Rollins "Duke of Iron" Silver City: A Celebration of 25 Years
Peter Gabriel "Lazarus Raised" Passion: Music for The Last Temptation of Christ
Waco Brothers "White Lightning" Cowboy in Flames
Glenn Gould "Partita IV in D Major, BWV 828: VII. Gigue" Partitas Nos. 3 and 4
The Breeders "Cannonball" Last Splash
Booker T. & the MGs "Jelly Bread" The Complete Stax-Volt Singles 1959-1968

Yo La Tengo "Let's Be Still" Summer Sun

And iTunes plays a little joke, for after popping 5 of the first 10 songs at two-and-a-half-minutes or less, it pulls a plus ten minute cut for a bonus. It also shows its range. Special props for a driving anti-Iraq War song to start, a post-punk classic from Kim Deal and the gang, and the always welcome instrumental stylings of Booker Jones and his gang.
