Friday Random Ten

Beck "Movie Theme" The Information
Beck "The Horrible Fanfare/Landslide/Exoskeleton" The Information
Alison Krauss & Union Station "Cluck Old Hen" Live
John Doe "Dyin' to Get Home" Meet John Doe
The Bently Boys "Down on Penny's Farm" Anthology of American Folk Music
Kronos Quartet with Foday Muso Suso "Tillboyo (Sunset)" Pieces of Africa
David Byrne "Princess" Look into the Eyeball bonus CD
Lloyd Cole and the Commotions "Perfect Blue" 1984-1989
Talking Heads "Love → to Building on Fire" Sand in the Vaseline
David Byrne "The Red House" The Complete Score from "The Catherine Wheel"

Carmaig DeForest "Kiss Me Seven Times" El Camino Real

I promise this popped out from 20,474 songs. Yes, two cuts that actually run in the same order on one CD to start off. And then the David Byrne obsession, but there are worse folks to get focused on, especially if "Love → to Building on Fire" is in the mix (cut o' the week). And we've had the Carmaig DeForest conversation before--turns out every blogger I know knows him.

Carmaig is a guy's name? At least I'm one person that doesn't know this guy.

Carmaig went to high school with someone I know in SB, college with a blogger in SF, and has some friend connection with another SF blogger. The guy plays a mean ukulele and is connected.
