Two for the show today. One is a shuffle of recent acquisitions (which is what we did on IIRTZ today) and the other I never got around to posting last Friday. But I had to let George see the title of the Jurado song that shuffled up out of the depths of iTunes' despair.

The Books featuring Jose Gonzalez, "Cello Song" Dark was the Night: A Red Hot Compilation

Ah, Ahab, a very apropos Jurado song title.

And did you fork out the money for that entire Merge anniversary box, or did you land the covers CD separately somehow?

Ninja Gun, "Front Yard Screamers, Kitchen Kissers," Restless Rubes

Brian Jonestown Massacre, "Mansion in the Sky," Tepid Peppermint Wonderland: A Retrospective

Sarge, "Dear Josie, Love Robin," Distant

Bootsy's Rubber Band, "Pinnochio Theory," Live in Louisville 1978

Brian Jonestown Massacre, "That Girl Suicide," ditto

Los Camesinos!, "Between an Erupting Earth and an Exploding Sky," We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed

Harper, "The World Starts Loving You," Down to the Rhythm

Rilo Kiley, "Spectacular Views," The Execution of All Things

Billy Bragg, "The Passion," Talking with the Taxman about Poetry,

Ola Podrida, "Cindy," Ola Podrida

Bonus: Gillian Welch, "Whiskey's Girl," Hell Among the Yearlings

Starts strong with Ninja Gun, then bumps around that good Sarge tune, then ends with a nice set from Rilo on.

If you don't know my friends from Ninja Gun, check out this interview. If Coody's answer to the first question doesn't make you a rabid fan, nostalgia for Rove has taken over your brain.

Now Pavement. The nice run continues. . . (blog coming, George; they replaced my computer this week and I'm adjusting.)

oops. Los Campesinos! Just a segue song, but a great band. Oh, and Ninja met Willie Nelson by chance.

Still don't know why breaks are doubling. If I don't type in
it all runs together.

The line break thing is fixed. I previewed, saw that, and had to tediously remove the br tags.

George, I thought you'd like the Jurado title. And I got the plain old Merge 20th anniversary CD. I forget how. It was a limited edition, I think. I've been on a CD tear for months, it's all fading together. I'll share it with you. I finally read some mail and even paid my bills a couple of days ago, so music chores are next. Honest.
