The always wonderful Onion AV Club debuted a great feature today. They ask folks they like to genuinely and truly put their iPods on shuffle and describe the attraction of the tunes that come up.
Among the participants…
Jethro Tull, “Up The Pool”
EM: I have lots of Jethro Tull because I also am mad at organized religion. When I was in high school, I really liked Jethro Tull, and I still enjoy it. I think that I really loved and identified with their brand of arrogant orchestral rock…
And David Cross
DJ Shadow, “Changeling”
DC: God, what a fucking great… I have amazing taste in music! This album is unbelievable, fucking great, not one bad second on there. If you played it now for people that are doing stuff influenced by DJ Shadow, it’s still better than that stuff.
Oddly, the guy from Modest Mouse has an Andre Nickatina track on his iPod. I can’t decide if that makes sense or not. One way or the other, Andre Nickatina creeps me out.
