Tyson Meade – A Return to the Old Way of Thinking: Not sure if this is really the title of the song, but from a show recorded around 2007 between Meade’s two solo albums.
Replacements – You Lose: Yelling from Hootenanny.
Archers of Loaf – Fat: Still slightly buzzed from the great show they put on in DC about three weeks ago.
Mogwai – Christmas Steps: From the Come On Die Young when I was most interested in the band.
Replacements – Black Diamond: Second song from the best band ever!
Archers of Loaf – Sick File: Okay, I’m really hoping Mogwai is next.
OOIOO – Uda Hah: Part Boredoms, all crazy.
Sparklehorse – Someday I Will Treat You Good: Great song from the late Mark Linkous.
The Everly Brothers – The Brand New Tennessee Waltz: iPod not very focused on waking me up first thing in the morning.
Merzbow – Wild Pair: That’s better.
Merzbow – Om Electrique – Part 1: Getting a good feel for how the morning will roll.
Miss Violetta Beauregarde – We Had a Riot Doing Diacetylmorphine: Continuing the chaotic mood.
Edith Piaf – Le Disque Use: Back to a certain level of culture.
Ondar – Kargyraa Rap: The morning was missing throat singing.
Tom Waits – T’ain’t No Sin: For any Waits head, I got a teaser email regarding “new music” to be announced on Waits’ Anti Label website on the 23rd.
So Percussion and Matmos – Cross: So ends a very unique Random Eight selection.
Jeff Buckley – I Know We Could Be So Happy Baby (If We Wanted To Be): From the great, if not sad, posthumous Sketches release.
Carter USM – Closedown: Slow, quiet song from Carter.
Ministry – Jesus Built My Hotrod: Not a slow, quiet song from Ministry.
The New Blockaders – Falten (Part 1): Noisy noisy.
Replacements – Merry Go Round: Very poppy tune from the band’s last album.
The Velvet Underground – Sister Ray: The lengthy rambling track from the band. Note that my long-time wish of having the entire Random Eight appear in alphabetical order by artist name has held true so far, but I’m going to need some luck with W, Y, and Z’s to finish the last two songs appropriately.
Warren Zevon – The French Inhaler: A great song, not to mention keeping with the alphabetical dream. However, it leaves little room for that eighth spot to be in compliance.
Robyn Hitchcock – Tell Me About Your Drugs: Sigh, not a Z in sight.
Boredoms – Double Circle: An album with songs named by icons, not words. But good Boredoms nevertheless.
John Cale – In a Flood: I think Black Acetate is one of Cale’s strongest albums in years.
Tom Waits – Down There By The Train: Classic Tom.
Isis – Over Root and Thorn: Good tune from the heavy droners.
Yo La Tengo – Blue Line Swinger: One of my favorite Yo La Tengo songs, showing how brilliantly they can mix beauty and chaos.
Merzbow – Strange Strings: And loud. And noisy. And Lengthy.
The dB’s – Suspicious Minds: Holsapple cover of the corny song.
The Clash – The Call Up: I woke up with a Clash song in my head (not this one, but still…).
