Knut - March: March the month? March the action of walking? March of war? Ides of March? Thing is, with a 20 minute metal track starting off the morning random eight, there is plenty of time to contemplate the answer.
Flaming Lips - Lightning Strikes The Postman: But then who will the dog bite?
Tomorrow is Already Here - Favorite Son: Hey, Garret makes it to the random eight two weeks in a row.
Blind Willie McTell - Broke Down Engine Blues: I find something comforting in these old tracks sometimes. I think the perfection in recording and producing these days has a tendency to take a spontaneous creativity out of music that sitting on a chair with a microphone and guitar can only provide. I probably couldn't listen to stuff like this continuously for the rest of my life, but it is fun to go back to how "popular" music really started in America.
The Boomtown Rats - House on Fire: Another blast from my high school past, but as I've said before, the Rats have held up very well for me.
Howard Hello - Follow: A pleasant enough track. I guess, when dissected, all music is kinda pointless, but this seems even more pointless than a typical song. Pointless isn't bad...it's just...pointless.
Toshira Mayuzumi - ???: I have no idea what I'm listening to here. It came from a various artists from Japan recording that I have no recollection of now that a lot of the relevant metadata is removed from my ipod display. That said, this is a goofy electronic track that is a pretty fun listen.
Dalek - Voices of the Ether: You're not going to find much hiphop on my ipod (or triphop, a category this probably falls into), but the mix of loud guitars and harsh beats keeps me listening to Dalek. Although this track is older, now is a good time to promote the latest release, Gutter Tactics, which is really a remarkable collection of songs.
