Forgotten Music, Rediscovered

If you read this blog, you know that I’m a film score fanatic.

What I don’t write about very often is my love for other styles of music. Well, today I’m going through my library and recreating a playlist containing music that isn’t film music, or classical.

In creating this new playlist, the greatest thing about it is rediscovering music that has been sitting in iTunes for a long while gathering digital dust.

Today, I rediscovered some old albums that are really great, but I haven’t listened to in a long while.

Lagwagon – Let’s Talk About Feelings

(iTunes) (Amazon)

So many great songs on this album. I love the “muzak” section in the first song separating the punk with something a little softer.

cKy – Infiltrate.Destroy.Rebuild

(iTunes) (Amazon)

For my money, this is cKy’s strongest album. Every song is tight, and seems well worked out with all the other songs on the album.

Refused – The Shape of Punk to Come

(iTunes) (Amazon)

An album intended to be a through experience from beginning to end.  I was sad when punk didn’t go in this direction… and when the band split.

Reverend Horton Heat – Holy Roller

(Amazon)

Shame on me for losing touch with my rockabilly soul. This album is full of everything one could ever want of this genre. From satire, to same sex cowboys.

Incubus – S.C.I.E.N.C.E.

(iTunes) (Amazon)

The heaviest and different than what came before. My second favorite next to Make Yourself. But how can you not love an album that begins with the sound of a didgeridoo?

And the awesome rediscovered single…

The Avalanches – “Frontier Psychiatrist”

Enjoy!

  1. “Frontier Psychiatrist” is one of my favorite songs! Except I think the video for it ruins the magic. The video SHOULD be a mashup of vintage western clips with psychedelic visuals. You oughtta look up the video for “Since I Left You” though! Amazin’.
