Number One

Yo, fuck this new bullshit- what happened to the good ol’ days? I’ll tell you, I’m sitting in them now. Carrel 2-S-15- good and old. Trying to write a paper, for sure, but I have this one class and for some reason, anything I try to listen to is really distracting for this one class, except for CAN. They are the Killers of Kraut. This song is called Mushroom from the 1971 release Tago Mago. It is all 100% Fuckin’ A.

Can – Mushroom

RIYL getting into the zone, smokin doobies, and freaking out

Number Two:

Why should I listen to old shit? I can’t waste my time going backwards. Onwards and upwards! Always marching into the future! So listen to this new shit that sounds like old shit. Murder By Death has been around for the better part of this decade, but their new album is just as good as their other stuff, if not better- certainly a more mature sound, which fits for degenerate-Americana or Gothic country, whatever you p-reefer. Dark and gloomy lyrics with a moody string section, yet it somehow doesn’t come off as campy; vocalist/guitarist Adam Turla’s voice often walks the line between Johnny Cash and Nick Cave. (If I had Slim Cessna’s new album Cipher, that would be what went up, but maybe I’ll post about that when I hear more than just a few traxxx.)

RIYL: Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, southern exposure, and burbon at 10am

Number Three:

This isn’t new or old, because it is from like a half a fuckin’ decade ago already. But that doesn’t even matter, because it is heavier than time. This is Dead Meadow. Sure they’ve been around the block a few times, but they have a new record that is pretty gnarly. Did you smoke all of your weed listening to the last two tracks? Well that’s fine, because Dead Meadow is music for sitting in your friend’s attic huffing glue. Not for writing dumb papers. No, this isn’t the mind crushing heaviness of the Melvins, nor is it the rambling phrenia of the Boredoms, but this band isn’t afraid to lay some thick groves for cutting through that haze.

Dead Meadow – Good Moanin’

RIYL: dropping out, Sabbath riffs, and Royal Tru
