Tuesday Random 17

Because I feel like it.

1. Tu n'appartiens qu'a moi - Nous Non Plus
2. Ny Batteri - Sigur Ros
3. Falling Slowly - Glen Hansard from the Once soundtrack - Just fucking go see this movie already. Stop being a dork and go see it.
4. Hot Bat - Man Man
5. You Got Me - Elk City - I must have downloaded this, but I don't remember when. Upbeat but not annoying, I could hear more.
6. Meu Destino - Thievery Corporation - I am surprised it took this long into this list to show up.
7. On Fire - Sebadoh
8. Got Me Wrong - Alice in Chains - Why did I buy the Clerks soundtrack? Probably the Chewbacca song.
9. Until the Morning - Thievery Corporation - Emiliana Torrini sings on this one. She has a voice I like.
10. The World Looks Red - Sonic Youth
11. Seein Thangs - David Banner - From DJ Shadow's hip hop album The Outsider. I like a variety, alright? Fuck you, Pinko Punko, I like what I like.
12. Wolves - Josh Ritter - I wish this was a higher quality version, but I will just have to burn it and listen to it on my CD player instead of my computer.
13. Sleep - The Dandy Warhols - I am not a huge fan of this song.
14. Hopscotch Willie - Stephen Malkmus - I know he is some sort of indie rock messiah, but this recording blows. The fault of that lies entirely with the fact that is a bootleg, I think.
15. The Spark That Bled - The Flaming Lips - I still like this album, even though I feel that At War With the Mystics is better and Transmissions from the Satellite Heart is more genuine.
16. A Boy Named Sue - Johnny Cash (written with Dylan, I think) This is and always will be a great song. Maybe one day, I'll get to murder it in a horrific kareoke performance.
17. The Essence - Herbie Hancock - It's good.

Herbie Hancock?

You are such a commie.

Chuckles said...

I am a commie in a certain way. Communism is essentially about being better than we are. In that regard, I am very much a commie.

In regards to music, you are fucking phillistine, AG.

Briana said...

I see you are rockin' the Bjorn Toroque alter ego... Excellent pix. I think EVERY mix should have Flaming Lips and Stephen Malkmus, but then again, I'm stuck in the 90's.

Kathleen said...

I like how you started out with the links, but then gave up. my kind of blog post.

if someone were interested in buying a Sigur Ros album, which would you recommend for a first-timer?

Kathleen said...

I'm asking for my friend. She lives in Canada, you wouldn't know her.

Chuckles said...

I was recommended Aegityr Fishnuts or whatever. It has a bluish cover with a Space Angel Fetus on the cover. You'll know it when you see it. I describe them in the words of Questionable Content: Whale song as performed by Finnish squirrels. Darn good.

Sorry Chuckles, but you've been tagged. I am passing on the meme that tagged me this morning to you.

Rules are at my place. And... it's supposed to be facts about you, not your wang.

In honor of teh Supreme Court Reaming we are taking, I am listening to SY the rest of the day.

Get your head out of your ass!

AG is going tomorrow night to hear Low and Wilco play in the outdoors, so she'll be a fair bit dephilistinized. At some point after hearing Spoon, Clientele, Shins, and Beach House, she might actually have just the smallest amount of indie cred.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

So there, ya munch!

Chuckles said...

I don't know if you can call it cred if it has been forced on her.

Chuckles said...

By the way, I gave up on the links because I figured that the rest of the bands were big enough that most would know them.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

He cannot rape concert me! Dork.

Porterhouse said...

Who's going to the air guitar regionals in SF tonight?

Kathleen said...

air guitar in SF?! no way. Alas, it clashes with Buffy at the Parkway.

Chuckles said...

EVERYONE SHOULD GO TO THE CHAMPIONSHIPS IN SF TONIGHT!!!
