Radiohead - Man Of War

So apparently this was recorded during the OK Computer setups and just didn't make the album. Which would make it about 20 years ago. It's a bit crazy to think how well an unreleased b-side has held up over time. Heads of the radio indeed.

All Them Witches - The Death Of Coyote Woman

These guys are real good. Hint of The Doors about them. Everything is on point here, love the depth from the Rhodes. Think this would be killer live.

Beck - Colors

New album. Early opinion: decent. This track is funky enough.

R.E.M. - Strange Currencies

These guys just released a new re-mastered version of 'Automatic From The People', a classic album that's a must for any half-serious vinyl collection. This song, of course, is not from that album. It's still great though so I picked it instead.

Toto - Africa

I've posted this one before (like 7 years ago) but never this version so we're making an exception. This is a soundboard recording of the performance at Budokan on May 19, 1982. Nice job adding a touch of reverb to make it sound like a stage recording. This is definitely the best live cut of this song out there, no lip syncing here folks.

Jesse Stewart - Marauder

This is one of the greatest solo performances of all time. Fact.

Armand van Helden - The Funk Phenomena

This is actually some dope mashup of a boss tune. Nice work on the video too. It's Saturday. Put on your skates and let's have a dance party.

The Cranberries - Zombie

I haven't had much sleep this week, and the weekend isn't looking promising either.

Timecop 1983 - Moving On

You don't get much variation from this dude, but he's damn good as what he does.

The Day - Grow

Don't know anything about this artist, but this tune is pretty smooth.

Clutch - Electric Worry

It's Monday. Let's get loud. Southern metal rock supreme loud.

Dion DiMucci & Paul Simon - New York Is My Home

I first heard this as a 'bonus track' on the 'deluxe' version of the Stranger To Stranger album. Apparently it was actually released as a single previously. It's a good tune that would have been served better without the drum track in the background.

As an aside, the concept of 'bonus' tracks and 'deluxe' versions of albums grinds my gears. Either it's part of the album or it's not. If it's not, release it separately and leave it that way. 'Deluxe' implies you've left something out of the original release, like it's the 'cheapskate' version.

Marketers, you suck.

Chromeo - Juice

Big fan of the early stuff from these guys. I feel like they've drifted away from prime groovy in the last couple years, but this first single from the upcoming album is promising. Keep them juices flowin'.

Jinx The Cat - Season Of Change

Great psychedelic jam band out of New Brunswick. If you get a chance, check 'em out live. This video is from almost five years ago, so they've evolved a bit since then.

Knower - Overtime

These guys are relatively new to me. I like them. A lot.

Pond - Zond

Wait wait! Don't put your costumes away just yet! Check out the new Star Wars trailer and then dance around like a weirdo in space.

Annie Lennox - Love Song For A Vampire

I made it. One month of posting every day. It's been a long, long time since I managed that. Onwards and upwards. Let's close out the Halloween festivities with this gem from dear Annie. Think this could be pretty epic with a live orchestra.
