There’s something pretty rad about finding a band/artist and getting knocked on your ass by the first sounds you hear. Of course nowadays few people actually listen to whole albums, so the experience may be a bit old fashioned. I spent two minutes flipping through the iPod today and found five that nail it. There would have been six, but I forgot N.W.A. had another album before ‘Straight Outta Compton.’ First, my favorite of all time:
‘Welcome to the Working Week’ Elvis Costello
And the others, though it appears YouTube is actually starting to crack down on uploaded versions of copyrighted music.
‘My Name Is Jonas’ Weezer // ‘Windfall’ Son Volt // ‘Ol’ 55’ Waits // ‘Mojo Pin’ Buckley
