Orange Juice - You Can't Hide Your Love Forever

The first LP released by Orange Juice with the band's original lineup. This album is full of delicious twee/post-punk jams and youthful Glaswegian energy. A nice midpoint between the other bands apart of scene then like: Josef K , The Pastels , and Scars. I dig the rest of the band's and Edwyn Collins' work but this album is the closest to my heart. The keyboards are subdued, if not nonexistent and the guitars are bit more sloppy and jangly.

Dig A Pony

The fact that a song from a band so over saturated in my life and in the culture around me can still make my eyes teary is just amazing. That has to say something about the power that all those individuals together produced. More powerful than selling records and merchandising. More powerful than the opinions of the listeners. It's nice to just shut off my mind and bask in the glow of it.

Ghost - Live With Me

I'm really on a Japanese Psychedelic and Metal kick right now. This band is just the tits. Their sound has a little for everyone depending on which album you choose. Anyways, trip out on this song which is the absolute best Rolling Stones cover ever recorded. A triple threat of Engrish, Xylophone and Michio Kurihara's guitar work.
