New Year’s Eve 5 Song Shuffle
Why not have a New Year’s Eve shuffle? I have no idea what that has to do with anything, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Baroness – Take My Bones Away
A bit of sludgy hard rock to kick things off. Why not?
Dave Porter – You’re All They Talk About
From the Breaking Bad soundtrack, here’s a representative tune. Quiet, somewhat ambient, somewhat eerie, I’m afraid this show was so good it kind of overwhelmed the stellar work done by Porter on the soundtrack. Even if you didn’t watch the show, you should give the soundtrack a listen, as it’s a masterpiece of minimalistic mood.
Buke and Gase – Hard Times
I bought this “single” online for charity, but it turned out I rather liked this little piece of slightly emo art rock.
Nothing – Downward Years To Come
Ah! A little shoegaze-y rock to break the mood. A bit more propulsive than your average shoegaze, but with that glossy sheen I associate with the genre.
Russian Circles – Burial
And now we finish with some hard driving instrumental music by the masters of crushing you with their amplifiers, Russian Circles. (Yes, that’s a compliment.)
