Five Songs, 12/3/2017

I really like this set a lot.

Live Human, "Quick Eleven"

We just had DJ Logic a few days ago, and Live Human is a similar premise: a trio of a bassist, drummer, and DJ. There's the same kind of loose, jazzy, improvisational feel to the proceedings. DJ Logic tends to be more towards the jazz end than the hip-hop end compared to Live Human, but they're really very similar bands.

Shudder To Think, "Rag"

Goddamn, listen to that song. Shudder to Think, where have you gone? (looks) Apparently Craig Wedren did some soundtracks, cool.

They Might Be Giants, "Fingertips 10"

I think I've reached a milestone when I have to resort to a search engine to find something on my own site. Anyway, yes, I've discussed the Fingertips songs before..

U.S. Maple, "Open A Rose"

When the vocals come in, I can't help but crack a smile. I'm so glad I live in a world where U.S. Maple not only existed, but lasted long enough to put out five albums of their inimitable nonsense.

Jan Jelinek, "My Favorite Shop"

More warm, glitchy electronic music from Jelinek, who here is credited as "avec The Exposures", but everybody just seems to credit the album to him.
