Play list: 08.27.06

Every once in a great while I come across music that is truly different, genuinely extraordinary, and original. This week I discovered The Dillinger Escape Plan's Calculating Infinity, and it certainly deserves special note. While it has certain medium-tempo minor-key noodly sections that loose my interest, when it burns, it's quite exceptional. Highly recommended for those who like their music on the noisy side.
  • The Dillinger Escape Plan, Calculating Infinity
  • The Band, Music From Big Pink

Play list: 08.20.06

I've been trying to think of something useful to do with this blog space, and it occurred to me that I could use it as a record of my weekly listenings--if nothing else, it'll be interesting to revisit as I continue in my grad program to see if or how my interests may change. I'm always fond of browsing such lists, so here's my contribution. As always, feel free to comment. I'll try to update every week.
