Pick Me, Pick Me, Everyone Is Waiting

New Music

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead – The Century Of Self – Somehow I’ve managed to acquire a lot of Trail of Dead albums without really trying.  There are some good songs on this one, I like “Bells Of Creation” and “Insatiable” so far.

Because you asked – Groups with the most albums on my iPod

Nine Inch Nails (11), Led Zeppelin (8), Nirvana (8), Offspring (8), Trail of Dead (7), Foo Fighters (7), Tool (6)

Random 10

Mars Volta – Eriatarka (Deloused in the Comatorium)
Nirvana – Big Cheese (Bleach)
Onesidezero – Never Ending (Is This Room Getting Smaller?) – Drum Solo!
Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun (Superunknown)
Rolling Stones – Live With Me (Let It Bleed)
Nirvana – Dive (Incesticide)
Everclear – Heroin Girl (Sparkle and Fade)
Aphex Twin – Lornaderek (Drukqs)
Butthole Surfers – Who Was In My Room Last Night? (Independent Worm Saloon)
Dredg – Brushstroke: Reprise (El Cielo)

If you haven’t ever had Richard James’ parents start singing “Happy Birthday” into an answering machine in the middle of your random 10, let me tell you, it’s a little jarring.

Two Videos

Nirvana – Big Cheese

I figure two weeks in a row with a double-shot of Nirvana warrants a video

Neil Young – Light a Candle

New album, Fork In The Road, comes out one week from Tuesday (4/7)
