Pixies – Surfer Rosa -The Pixies are just a little bit off-center.  It’s a different sound than anything else in my collection.  This one is a little bit more odd than ‘Doolittle’ but I like quite a few of the songs.  ‘Where is my mind’, ‘Cactus’, and ‘Broken Face’ are favorites so far.

Random 10 (or Help me, Nine Inch Nails is taking over my iPod)

Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) – Marilyn Manson – Lest We Forget, the Best of Marilyn Manson
29 Ghosts IV – Nine Inch Nails – Ghosts
The Wretched – Nine Inch Nails – And All That Could Have Been
22 Ghosts III – Nine Inch Nails – Ghosts
Sigh Your Children – …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead – Madonna
Miss Murder – A.F.I. – Decemberunderground
Self Esteem – The Offspring – Smash
Born As Ghosts – Rage Against the Machine – Battle of Los Angeles
Catch Without Arms – Dredg – Live at the Fillmore
Would? – Alice in Chains – Dirt

Nothing too remarkable in those 10.  Instead I have something interesting in the third half of this post.

Zoe Keating, a cellist previously featured in one of these music posts has composed some soundtrack music for a documentary entitled “Ghost Bird”.  The trailer is below, and it doesn’t feature her music but it still ties into this post musically.

Here’s one of Ms. Keating’s compositions for the soundtrack.  Zoe Keating – Flying and Flocking

Weekly Music Post

Continuing my recent fascination with music from the 80’s, I bought two new albums this week:

Jane’s Addiction – Nothing’s Shocking

Pixies – Doolittle

So far I like them both, although neither is entirely what I expected.  I guess I always thought of Jane’s Addiction as much more punk than they actually are on this record, so I liked the hard rock of Nothing’s ShockingDoolittle is full of quirky songs, but there are some good ones on there.  I haven’t listened to either album enough to form anything more than a first impression, so other thoughts will have to wait.
