Well, be careful what you wish for, daddypig … this week’s set is definitely eclectic – taking us from primordial ooze to Jah himself. Or herself, depending on your point of view. Anyway, have at ye and keep sending those worms to firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks to all.
Mudhoney – Chardonnay (Live) – panthersan: The return of Mudhoney has been nothing short of triumphant and they seem much better now than they were the first time around. In this short, sweet number he really really doesn’t like Chardonnay!!
The Sugarcubes – Birthday – CaroleBristol: This is the Icelandic version of “Birthday” by The Sugarcubes. I am sure that this was most people’s introduction to Bjork, it was certainly mine and this song never fails to excite me. No one else does what Bjork does.
Wakey! Wakey! – Crazy – debbym: I love this cover, with its minimal piano intro and heartfelt vocals and wild, wild strings. I believe they’re way crazier than Gnarls Barkley.
Redhead Kingpin & The FBI – Do The Right Thing – DsD: DANG, but this is a stubborn little worm. Been refusing to leave my head since the Elastic Bands R-week. I refuse to be infected on my own.
Disrupt – Selassi I Continually – Shoegazer: New series: Dubtronica
Dennis Brown – The Existence of Jah – goneforeign: Another Jamaican Rasta song about Jah, this one by Dennis Brown, possibly the most popular singer in Jamaica during the 80’s, a serious and dedicated Rastaman. I love the bassline in this song, it’s by Lloyd Parks, probably Jamaica’s greatest bassist.
