Today is Record Store Day, please go spend accordingly at the little indy store in your urban hellhole.
Out of over 15,000 songs in my iTunes files maybe 300 are downloaded digital files, the rest come from artisanal CD’s lovingly hand-downloaded onto my Mac.
Now ten songs more or less lovingly selected by a soulless machine:
Rusty Cage – Johnny Cash
Kill All Hippies – Primal Scream
Spiritual – Charlie Haden & Hank Jones
See Fernando – Jenny Lewis
You’re Always The Sun – Supreme Beings Of Leisure
Round & Round – New Order
Not Even Stevie Nicks... – Calexico
You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go – Bob Dylan
You Turn Clear In The Sun – Telekinesis
Rakim – Dead Can Dance
and…. Thrasher – Engineers
This performance gives me goosebumps:
There is a Dead Can Dance box set that contains the entire concert that the above was taken from, and it is worth it for the DVD alone.
