Ten Songs for the tenth month

New Music

Dinosaur Jr. – Farm – I’ve been reading good things about this album for a while, and I had listened to a few of the songs and liked them. Having bought the album, now I can say that it is really good. I mean really good. I just enjoy listening to this one, so many good songs and great guitar moments. This is definitely my favorite Dinosaur Jr. album that I’ve heard, with the best songs being ‘Pieces’, ‘I Want You to Know’, and ‘Over It’.

Random 10

  • One Big Holiday – My Morning Jacket – It Still Moves
  • Hey Hey What Can I Do? – Led Zeppelin – Immigrant Song Single
  • Sleeping Beauty – A Perfect Circle – Mer de Noms
  • Old School Hollywood – System of a Down – Hypnotize
  • Slither – Velvet Revolver – Contraband
  • Pushit (live) – Tool – Salival
  • Tomorrow – Silverchair – Frogstomp
  • I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow – Soggy Bottom Boys – O Brother Where Art Thou? Soundtrack
  • The Interview – AFI – Decemberunderground
  • Omaramor – Matt Haimovitz (composed by Osvaldo Golijov) – Anthem

I do get a little excited whenever cello music (like #10) shows up to break up the rock and roll.

Friday Music – May 29

Dinosaur Jr. – Bug – This is more music that came out of my newfound interest in the 1980’s.  Freak Scene is a fantastic track and my favorite of the album.  I got this a while ago, but I’ve been a little tardy in really giving it a chance in the CD player, so I’ll have to make an effort.  Overall, I would say I like Dinosaur Jr’s sound, you can see where it leads into a lot of the early 90’s rock music that I grew up on.

Random 10 Songs

Your Touch – Black Keys – Magic Potion
Chop Suey – System of a Down – Toxicity
Monkey Gone to Heaven – Pixies – Doolittle

Let’s see, we’ve got some NIN, some 80’s stuff and a dash of Zeppelin and techno.  I’d call that a pretty solid Big Mak music list.
