Nearly Random Ten

"Quick, Let's Bury the Sawyer Post!" Edition

1. "Helicopter," Bloc Party
2. "Make War," Bright Eyes
3. "Sleeping In," The Postal Service
4. "Pills for Sara," Winterpills
5. "Game for Pricks," Guided by Voices
6. "Academy Fight Song," Mission of Burma

9. "Greenday Massacre," Dean Gray
10. "Murr Murr," Mugison

I've put a bunch of stuff into heavy rotation that I've either recently bought or acquired once upon a time and never really gave a chance to. So instead of the usual 4000 song play list, we are down to about 10% of that.

Like Redhorse, I've gone music hunting lately. Unlike Red, I like a fair amount of what Square Records stocks. I'm paying a premium there, but if I can pay extra to eat organic, if I can hate on Wal-Mart, I can certainly shell a little extra to keep a local business going. The latest purchases there have been Mission's Signals, Calls and Marches; Neko Case's The Tigers Have Spoken; and Greatest Hits packages by Yo La Tengo and Guided by Voices.

Yes to Black Keys honk who keeps commenting; I tried to pick up one of their EP's but, get this, no disc inside. Right now Square's stock of Keys is pitiful. I'll try again in a week or so. Meanwhile, if you have a particular disc I should check out, drop it in comments.

ON EDIT: I erroneously labeled #9 as a Green Day song. It's in fact from American Edit mashup artist Dean Gray.

neko case, eh? perhaps I'll have to take a closer look around Square sometime soon.

Big Box also had Shooter Jennings new get up. Might have to look into that.

You can order anything you want, too, from Square. No extra charge. They just can't afford to keep tons of stuff in stock.
