Friday Random Ten

Modest Mouse "Tiny Cities Made of Ashes" The Moon & Antarctica
Red Dirt Rangers "Idabel Blues" Vol. 1--Full Tank
Emmylou Harris "Cup of Kindness" Stumble into Grace
Laurie Anderson "Tightrope" Bright Red / Tightrope
Leo Kottke "Three/Quarter North" One Guitar, No Vocals
Esquivel "Lazy Bones" Space Age Bachelor Pad Music
Pavement "Brink of the Clouds" Wowee Zowee--Sordid Sentinels Edition
Elvis Costello & The Attractions "Busy Bodies" Armed Forces
Kate Bush "Deeper Understanding" The Sensual World
Big Star "Baby Strange" (live) Keep an Eye on the Sky

Jon Langford "Buy It Now" Gold Brick

Methinks iTunes is hating on me of late. Pretty blah. Do like that Big Star T-Rex cover, and the box set is so wonderful it's good to see it in the list. That's a lovely, sneaky cynical song by Jon Boy to go out on, too.
