Les Savy Fav – I.C. Timer

Hearing this for the first time when I was 19 had a huge impact on me… especially on what I started drawing because the lyrics are so surreal and visual.

 

Melt Yourself Down – We Are Enough

 

Proof that modern dance music needs more god damn saxaphone in it…. sheesh!

 
Safetyword – Pour Your Features Through The Mirror  

Sometimes your favourite band break up and you've just gotta get over it…. I'M STILL NOT OVER IT.

Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band – Circumstances

 

I judge everyone on whether they like Captain Beefheart or not…. 

 

Paul McCartney & Wings – Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five

I almost picked 'Live and Let Die' because whenever I listen to it I imagine Paul getting really excited when the fireworks go off at the beginning but I picked this instead. 

 
Shellac – Watch Song  

JUST TOTALLY TOTALLY BRILLIANT

 
William D Drake – Homesweet Homestead Hideaway  

The opening line of this song says everything I can't...

 
Angels Of Light – The Man We Left Behind  

Gruff man sings sad song.

 

PJ Harvey – The Devil

 

Incredible woman sings sad song. 

 

Tortoise – Charteroak Foundation

 

I have a few beautiful memories that this song is interwoven into and it makes my internal organs warm and happy when I hear it.
