Random 10 for October 29, 2008
1. Chris Cornell, “Ground Zero.” You know how it is: you download out of unquenchable curiosity, then the horror begins – the garbage just keeps jumping out at you like it’s being propelled out of a trash cannon. This is from Cornell’s upcoming disc with Timbaland, which is turning out to be the “Cop Rock” of musical amalgams — prepare to recoil. Speaking of “Cop Rock,” this clip prominently features material from the thoroughly enjoyable “Life on Mars,” also known as my new “Journeyman.”
2. Wilco, “Ashes of American Flags.”
3. Eisley, “Ten Cent Blues.”
4. Voxtrot, “Kid Gloves.”
5. Neon Neon, “I Lust You.” This electro-pop sideline from Gruff Rhys is so excellent, I might be forgiving if he waits awhile for the next Super Furries disc.
6. Portishead, “We Carry On.”
7. Ben Harper and the Blind Boys of Alabama, “Pictures of Jesus.”
8. The Autumn Defense, “Estate Remains.”
9. Dennis Wilson, “Time For Bed.”
10. Fun Boy Three, “Our Lips Are Sealed.” As unabashed New Wave geekoids know, Jane Wiedlin (Staticblog Rock Crush 1982) and former Specials leader Terry Hall were all kissy back then, and the long-standing result of that romance was “Our Lips Are Sealed.” The Go-Go’s hit it huge with the song, and then Hall recorded it with Fun Boy Three two years later, with production by David Byrne.
