True enough…this was supposed to go up yesterday, but mad thunderstorms and a power outage pushed it off. Oh well.
If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music. Then tell you about it.
This first track makes me so happy I can’t stand myself. It’s J.D. McPherson and “North Side Gal” from the album Signs & Signifiers. If you don’t like this, then I honestly don’t know what to do with you. It’s that simple.
So speaking of amazing stuff: here’s Son House performing “Death Letter” live. Not sure where this was shot, but it’s pretty damn fantastic. Rob sent this over for your edification via Dangerous Minds.
Another pick from Rob, this is Richard Thompson with a live rendition of “Bad Again.”
So I ran across an old episode of “Zoe Radio,” in which a young lady who had better music knowledge than you threw awesome tunes at your head. Found a lot of bands through her. And this being an episode I hadn’t heard from 2005, I thus discovered One Block Radius. This is their song “Look Out Below” from the album Long Story Short. No idea what the hell that image is for in the vid, BTW.
Doc hadn’t heard of this either, so I got +5 points for getting to an awesome hip-hop song before Doc. Then got -5 points because I was beaten to the bunch by a teenage girl six years ago. So. The album’s available from Amazon as a CD.
A pick from Rob placed into the mix here, it’s Pop Will Eat Itself and “There is No Love Between Us Anymore.” You can find this on the 2003 re-issue of Box Frenzy.
That’s still considered an import apparently, so I recommend if you want it (it does come with nine bonus tracks), snag the MP3 download version from Amazon.
And you can say what you want about Sucker Punch, but the soundtrack will improve your workouts. This remix of Bjork and Skunk Anansie doing “Army of Me” is fantastic. I love how the second half of the song morphs into the Anansie-backed version and Bjork ups her vocals to compensate for the additional rawk. The end result is a song that tries to bite you on the face. Brilliant.
Amazon has an MP3 version of the soundtrack, but it’s missing tracks. So your best bet is the CD version.
