Dinosaur Jr. “Sludgefeast”

This is perhaps one of the most influential rock albums of the last 30 years. Even inspiring shoegaze bands by their couching pop melodies in a wall of pure volume. Best played LOUD.

The Hush “Grey”

Teenage Fanclub “The Cabbage”

Oh how I loved this song back in the day.

Jawbox “Savory” on Conan in 1994

Hot Snakes “Automatic Midnight”

This is a peel session from one of the best live bands on the planet. They said last night that they just recorded a new song yesterday too.With some of the best screamed vocals since Kurt Cobain.

Savage Republic “Film Noir”

One of my favorite bands (and certainly one of my favorite Los Angeles bands). They had a sound that was unique then (and now).

Thee Oh Sees “Encrypted Bounce (A Queer Sound)”

This song is a good way to start this (or any) weekend!
