Tune on, baby!
This intern playlist comes to you from Kevin Leonard at the Digital Services desk in Boston. The last show he attended was Tycho. Tracklist & commentary below.
1. “I Sat By the Ocean” – Queens of the Stone Age
I’m a huge fan of QOTSA and everything associated with them, so this whole list could easily be all songs of theirs. This is a single off their newest album. It’s new without abandoning roots. Good stuff.
2. “The Gravedigger’s Song” – Mark Lanegan
My day wouldn’t be complete without a little Lanegan growl.
3. “It All Means Nothing” – Screaming Females
I discovered these guys recently. This song’s been stuck in my head for weeks.
4. “Montana” – Tycho
A great morning commute song, when it’s too early for lyrics.
5. “Saeglopur” – Sigur Ros
Just a beautiful song. Really anything by Sigur Ros.
6. “Trick Pony (Boys Noize Remix)” – Charlotte Gainsbourg
I’m not usually crazy about remixes, but I really dig this. Involuntary head bumps.
7. “Is That Your Life” (ft. Francesca Belmonte) – Tricky
Just a bomb beat.
8. “Rose Part I & II” – King Pleaxure
A friend’s project from college. He does some really great genre-blending stuff. Check it! This one’s stuck.
9. “Things I Don’t Remember” – Ugly Casanova
A side-project of Modest Mouse, just a lot of ridiculousness/weirdness/awesomeness.
10. “Make It Wit Chu” – Queens of the Stone Age
This song always makes me laugh. Fun stuff.
