Mike Watt – Beak-Holding-Letter-Man: The Hyphenated-Man release is a bit of a theme where every song is named after some type of man. This mostly instrumental tune doesn’t really capture the annoyance of all the beak-holding-letter-men I pass on the way to work everyday.
The Paper Chase – It’s Out There And It’s Gonna Get You: But it is under a minute long, so it probably isn’t too bad.
The Afghan Whigs – You My Flower: Finally, finally, the Whigs have announced their U.S. tour!
Nico – Evening of Light: Always enjoy songs from The Marble Index.
The Paper Chase – A Nice Family Dinner For Once: Another brief transition track from the band of complete misery.
The Kinks – You Really Got Me: Ah the sounds of my youth.
Motorhead – Killed By Death: More sounds of my youth…although these are a bit louder.
Chemical Brothers – The Riot / Trip Harder / Everything Must Go / I Think I’m In Love: One-fifth of the bouncy and fun Brothers Gonna Work It Out, including the great Spiritualized ending.
Back from the short hiatus.
Amon Tobin – Proper Hoodidge: Just don’t shoot him.
The Dead Milkmen – The Big Sleazy: Starting off with a part of an ongoing story from Metaphysical Graffiti, and then to a song about hating Philadelphia radio…one of many hangups the band had to croon about.
R.E.M. – 9-9: Just a touch on the wacky, disjointed side from the early days of the band.
John Cale – Heartbreak Hotel: A live, piano/voice haunting version of the popular tune.
The Replacements – Unsatisfied: Not a bad trip from the time machine today.
Cursive – Double Dead: As happy as ever.
Amon Tobin – Precursor: Very bouncy with even more peculiar sounds than normal.
Shinji Masuko – Woven Music for Silver Ocean: And it is, oddly.
DJ Shadow – Untitled: Short intro track to the Endtroducing album.
Peter Holsapple and Chris Stamey – I Want To Break Your Heart: Doesn’t seem like a nice goal.
R.E.M. – I Believe: We should be in the 19th century in no time.
Stereolab - Working Title (The Pram Song) (Seeperbold): From ABC Music the Radio 1 Sessions.
Steve Westfield and The Slow Band – Ain’t Gotta Reason: Very short, very yaahoo’ish song.
Barn Burning – Dead Horse Waltz: A song that remarkably sounds like its title.
Thuja – Track 2: Short piano track from The Deer Lay Down Their Bones.
Amon Tobin – Nakatali Closing out what might be the shortest-length Random Eight ever.
