10 For the Road

Traveling to St. Louis today.  Spent the evening searching for driving music (I think Mrs. Mak will lose it if we listen to Farm one more time).

  • Come to Daddy – Aphex Twin – Come to Daddy EP
  • Milk It – Nirvana – From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah
  • Stupid Girl – Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Zuma
  • Quotes – Dredg – The Pariah, the Parrot, the Delusion
  • Dead Leaves and Dirty Ground – The White Stripes – White Blood Cells
  • 02 Ghosts I – Nine Inch Nails – Ghosts
  • Immigrant Song – Led Zeppelin – How the West Was Won
  • Let it Loose – The Rolling Stones – Exile on Main Street
  • Doesn’t Remind Me – Audioslave – Out of Exile
  • Rocking Horse – Dead Weather – Horehound

[11:30 PM UPDATE – We have a decsision!]

Eighth Blackbird – Fred – I know next to nothing about this one.  Saw the group on the Minnesota Orchestra webpage, thought they sounded interesting.  We’ll see.  This is a collection of works composed by Frederick Rzewski.  ‘Coming Together’ based on a letter written by a prisoner during prison riots at Attica is the piece that really caught my eye.
