A really weird mix compared to what I actually listen to, but I guess that's going to happen when you have:

While I'm not shuffling my complete library currently, I am shuffling through a specific playlist right now:

There's also some early NoFX and Fugazi in there, but I don't want to break the "post first 5 songs on shuffle rule" any more than I already have

Awesome playlist.

I mostly use Spotify for my music right now and it's not nearly complete for my music collection but this is what I get:

Woody Guthrie - Grand Coulee Dam

Alkaline Trio - She Took Him To The Lake

Embrace - Money

Oasis - Up In The Sky

Judge - Warriors

Actually I'm pretty happy with that mix.

I'm liking this. I'm definitely seeing some bands I've never heard before and I have a feeling a lot of them are the kind of bands some of you guys might not consider "Everyone must know of them!" types but I'm diggin' em. On that Hail Mary Mallon track I hear Aesop Rock. Is he just guesting on that track or is he part of that group?

Hail Mary Mallon is Aesop Rock, Rob Sonic and DJ Big Whiz. Aes has been doing a lot of team-ups with other musicians recently. He has another side-project with Kimya Dawson that should be dropping soon under the name The Uncluded, in addition to a solo album coming out in a few months.

Heard this listening to an alternative station on itunes.
Never heard industrial big band before.

I get to be one of the cool cats for a brief moment.

A guy I know was involved in a photo-shoot for these guys and tweeted a link to this. I really enjoyed it, so I'm gonna put this here:

I discovered this band through the trailer for NFFTY

Bronze Radio Return - Everything Moves; NFFTY 2012 trailer:

Personally, I disliked my high school years outside of my circle of friends. For whatever reason though (might be the bottle of whine I had to myself tonight), I went looking for my high school's Facebook page, and subsequently found out that Sleigh Bells filmed one of their music videos in my home town and high school.

One of my favorite tracks from 2011 is a BRR track.

The new Beach House album is awesome (as expected).

I like that a lot, but listening to the previews, I'm not sure I could make it through the whole album in a sitting.

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned them at some point on this site, but Mucca Pazza is one of my favorite bands. Live they're more fun than Girl Talk or Matt & Kim. Seriously. Here's an article about them with their new (first?) video embedded. NPR article

Song's alright. Not as lively as some of their other stuff. Funny thing about the video is they often play on a stage that size but all at the same time. Though they regularly roam throughout the crowd and get on to of things.

One of the trombonists is in another band that's pretty good, too. Jon Drake & The Shakes - Side A (Free Download)

Yo, your musical tastes are good and Imma let you finish, but

Bravo. That was heavy and hot.

I can't get enough of this guy. Might have something to do with Hot Chip's Joe Goddard producing the music.

I heard about this project a long time ago and was recently reminded of it... so I looked it up.
If you click on Music there's a free download of the Soundtrack.
Re:Generation
Skrillex is a guilty pleasure of mine, so the inclusion of an alternate cut of Breakin' a Sweat alone is worth it. Listening to the rest now.

EDIT: I dig it. Loading it to my portable player to see how it fares at full volume on the Interstate.

My friend found an old Bear Vs Shark concert on youtube with great sound quality. I still miss this band.

Oh wow, that must have been awesome to see live. I miss Bottom of the Hill.

There are so many good First Listens on NPR Music right now.

New Sigur Ros, Regina Spektor, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Hilary Hahn, and Walkmen.

On a similar vein, J. Robbins apparently recorded a song in two days with Chris Walla:

I've never been there but one of (if not) my favorite live albums was recorded there.

The Lumineers - Ho Hey

Good song. Good album. I especially like the song Classy Girls.

Here's another round of Welcome to Shuffle: skeletontunes version.

Funny enough, after the list that Wipeout posted, this is the first song that came up.
Operation Ivy - One Of These Days

The Undertones - Wednesday Week

Malcolm Mclaren - Legba

Jeez, I almost hesitate to post this, it's such an obvious song, but for the sake of the game here it is.
Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall pt. 2

Beck - E-Pro

Not really too happy with this list. Blah.

Kimbra's "Vows" gets its U.S. release today. Most know her as "the girl on Gotye's 'Somebody I Used to Know.'" Many critics appear to be "meh" about it, but it's one of my top albums of the year so far. Put this thing on a good pair of headphones or speakers and her composition, layering, vocals, etc. all really shine. Great talent, great album, HIGHLY recommended.

I'm sure my wife's already bought it - she's been a fan for months, now, since she saw a link to Cameo Lover on twitter.

Nice - my wife's way into her as well. She swiped the copy I was able to find at my favorite local store yesterday this AM on her way to work, I had to pick up another.
