Uncommon music criticized by the common man. (Or, exercises in futility masquerading as critical thought.)

Hipster Shuffle

It seems my iPod is in a very hep cat mood this morning. Here are the first ten songs it played:

Dysrhythmia "Touch Benediction"
Pavement "Old To Begin"
Pepe Deluxe "Salami Fever"
Public Enemy "Don't Believe The Hype"
Teenage Fanclub "Older Guys"
Damon & Naomi "The Great Wall"
Gnarls Barkley "Crazy"
Superchunk "Garlic"
Elliott Smith "Waltz #2"
Pixies "Bone Machine"

(And the 11th song, playing as I type this, is New Pornographers. I'm a Ted Leo song and funny pair of shoes away from being me three years ago. Except I don't actually own any Ted Leo albums.)

The year end list is almost complete and will be posted later today. Another fine year in music.
