Friday Random Ten

Feist "Gatekeeper" Let It Die
The Embarrassment "Train of Thought" Time for a Change--Bar/None Sampler #2
John Cale "Fear Is a Man's Best Friend" The Island Years
Sleater-Kinney "One More Hour" Dig Me Out
Yo La Tengo "Night Falls on Hoboken" And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out
Ed's Redeeming Qualities "Falls Church, Virginia" It's All Good Times
Magnetic Fields "The Things We Did and Didn't Do" 69 Love Songs
The Minus 5 "Bought a Rope" The Minus 5
Matthew Sweet "I Wanted to Tell You" (live) Son of Altered Beast
Superchunk "Foolish" Incidental Music 1991-95

Moebius & Roedelius "Grenzganger" Apropos Cluster

Lots of goodness here after the first two okay-nesses get out of the way. Great Cale into S-K, the YLT is lengthy but interesting, the ERQ one of my fave lyrics, the Magnetic Fields and Minus 5 surprisingly strong out of their album context, then a great Sweet song done well enough live and a Superchunk song that's normally pretty buzzed and blurred. And Cluster closing with Germanic noises--why not?

From what I read, the title The Death of Quickspace was originally intended to be literal, though they released singles in 03 and 05. They always deliberately kept a low profile. Not sure why.

Hope the Leonard Cohen show was spectacular, George. My friend in Austin said it was the best show she'd ever seen, and she's seen everyone.
