Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 8/26/09

Like Eddie Cochran and countless others after him sang, there's just no cure for the summertime blues. A rude awakening this morning with the fire alarm triggering off the house alarm, waking the baby two hours ahead of schedule in a house with broken a/c and a lovely clammy, hot air about the place. How other folks do it, I dunno, but my sincere respect goes out to you all.

No banter this morning, sorry, but here's my playlist for the week:

Michael Jackson - Thriller
Rammstein - s/t
Bigelf - Cheat the Gallows
Byzantine - Oblivion Beckons
Redd Kross - Neurotica
Lynard Skynard - Street Survivors
Halloween II (Rob Zombie) soundtrack
The Accused - The Legend of Martha Splatterhead
English Beat - Beat This! The Best of the English Beat
Andreas Kisser - Hubris I & II
Machines of Grace - s/t
Viatrophy - s/t

Mule, I love seeing David Crosby in that mix! I really dig Witchcraft too.

Anon (TB), good to see you! Keep it coming from Michigan. I'm still waiting for anyone to best Mastodon for album of the year.

Mark, for Dpth's benefit, would you agree there's a heavy lean towards King's X in sound? I like it a good bit; kinda mellow, not overly-engaging, just dials in and plays in a King's X groove. Dpth, can't wait to spin the new Ahab myself.

Yeah, a friend lent me the Atlantic/Rhino reissue of that David Crosby album. If you're into CSNY and early Neil Young, this is like a missing chapter from that whole scene. Great!

Witchcraft must be putting out something new soon. It's been too long!
