Give This Stuff A Shot (Sept & Oct '08)

10 random albums you should at least give a solid listen.
1 Man or Astro-Man?
Destroy All Astro-Men

Surf awesomeness with some weird samples thrown in from 50s/60s television/movies. If you dig this, also check out their album EEVIAC: Operational Index and Reference Guide. I like Destroy All... just a smidge better but they are both stellar. Their later works gets a little more experimental and strays away from the surf style.
2 Oingo Boingo
20th Century Masters: The Millenium Collection: Best of Oingo Boingo

As awesome as Oingo Boingo is, their individual albums aren't the epic awesomeness you could hope they are. So this greatest hits collection is awesome.... who doesn't love the theme from Weird Science?

I was never huge into Emperor, but this solo release from Emperor's frontman is an AWESOME black/progressive/experimental metal album. A guest appearance from Opeth's Mikael ?kerfeldt (on the track Unhealer) doesn't hurt either...
4 A Place to Bury Strangers
A Place to Bury Strangers

Pseudo-Industrial noise rock. Energetic and frightening at times, and yet mellow and beautiful at others.
5 Zeke
Dirty Sanchez

Fast, dirty, pissed off, disgusting punk. Most of the songs clock in under 1 or 2 minutes - perfect for a short trip to work.
6 Bobby Bare Jr.
Young Criminals Starvation League

Country that doesn't suck. Savor it.
7 Copper Box
Sunny Days

Uh... polka rock? Kinda folky, kinda indie, kinda unexplainable...? Not intrigued? Check out their cover of Comfortably Numb for starters....
8Fuck Buttons
Street Horrrsing

For fans of Tetris. Not only are there 8-bit sounds galore, but each song is meticulously built up by small pieces over a fairly long time (most of the songs clock in at about 8+ minutes). Sounds slightly chaotic at first, but then you hear how the distorted vocals sit cozily (and creepily) underneath everything, changing your first impressions on the 8-bit ass-kicking you just received.
9 Herbie Hancock
Head Hunters

Funky. Jazzy. Killer. Sounds like the interludes on the Cosby Show, but better. ;) Except these songs are about 300 times longer and take you on a little trip.
10 Kinski
Alpine Static

Instrumental. Sometimes psychedelic, sometimes on par with Sabbath-quality heaviness. This album flows more with the latter, but their entire discography is something worth checking out! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!
