Random Ten – Now with Unnecessary Vulgarity

New Music

Neil Young – Tonight’s the Night – Been feeling a little bit bleary lately (waking up before the sun will do that, can’t wait to gain an hour this weekend), so it seemed like a good time to try this album out.  Neil Young has never been a polished singer, but even after hearing from others how raw this album was, I guess it was still more than I expected.
Fuck Buttons – Tarot Sport – Noise music, it’s actually pretty close to the minimalist orchestral kick I’ve been on recently.  The opening track ‘Surf Solar’ is my favorite, although the finale ‘Flight of the Feathered Serpent’ is also pretty cool.  Yeah, the band name is dumb, but that’s pretty easy to ignore.

Random 10

  • Drunk with Power – Puscifer – V is for Vagina
  • Consequence – Incubus – Make Yourself
  • With Teeth – Nine Inch Nails – With Teeth
  • The Greater Good – Nine Inch Nails – Year Zero
  • Speedway – Counting Crows – This Desert Life
  • My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue) – Neil Young – Rust Never Sleeps
  • Fern – Zoë Keating – Natoma
  • Space Mountain – Fuck Buttons – Tarot Sport
  • A Bower Scene – The Decemberists – The Hazards of Love
  • Pocket Symphony, B – Eighth Blackbird – Fred: Music of Frederic Rzewski

Even with more songs on my bigger iPod, it’s nice to know that I can still get back-to-back Nine Inch Nails.
