I really like her New York track.

Pretty solid in a Buzzcocky sort of way.

Good way to describe it. And, damn. Superchunk has been around a long time, now!

Rage Against The Machine being eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame really makes me feel older than most of the other nominees for some reason and I can't really put my finger on why. Maybe because their debut album kind of came out of nowhere compared to a band like Radiohead (who were following in the footsteps of Britpop bands like Oasis, Blur, etc. -- even if Radiohead then and now would prove to be vastly superior.)

But I'll always have a soft spot for RATM. How can you not love a band whose record label (Sony) asked them to contribute a song for the soundtrack of Godzilla, a summer blockbuster being produced by Sony and they offered the song No Shelter, which had these lyrics:

Hospitals not profit full
Yet market bulls got pockets full
To advertise some hip disguise
View the world from American eyes
The poor adore keep fiendin' for more
The thin line between entertainment and war
They fix the need, develop the taste
Buy their products or get laid to waste
Coca-Cola is back in the veins of Saigon
And Rambo too, he got a dope pair of Nikes on
Godzilla, pure motherfucking filler
To keep ya eyes off the real killer...

Cinema, simulated life, ill drama
Fourth Reich culture, Americana
Chained to the dream they got ya searchin' for
The thin line between entertainment and war


(Though to their credit, Sony put the song on the soundtrack.)

Think it says something that pretty much every side project by a member of Bon Iver is pretty awesome. I really dig this song.

Bon Iver - Justin Vernon + a dash of Americana

I'd add "+ Red House Painters" to your equation.

Also, that's quite a lot of Packers imagery for a Lions fan to be posting.

Currently making my way through the expanded, 3 hour, 50 minute re-mastered edition of Wilco's Being There.

Me gusta.

This is kinda interesting (and a quick cautionary tale about getting caught up in either labeling certain types of music or reading too much into the way some music writers are constantly trying to spin a narrative).

10. The only song on this list I had to look up to know what it was
9. ... something is just off with them like you can hear their sellout turn happening before it happens or something
8. I hate this song
7. Really good (and I was sure it was Japandroids for a few months)
6. Is part of a weird trend of older bands still making solid music
5. Sucks
4. Really, really good (and I was sure it was Carseat Headrest for a few months)
3. The good version of a band who I probably dislike as often as I like
2. Top 5 song this year for me
1. How was it only played 36 times?

Fill in DJ's generally don't play the Friday Song. And if they are doing a special day (like International Clash Day, for example) they'll skip it as well.

Absolutely amazing stuff. The entire album is great.

Just had a full-on Keyzer Soze = Verbal Kint moment when I read that Shabazz Palaces is the lead dude from Digable Planets.
