Everyone agrees that diversity is the spice of life, and since it’s long been established that my musical tastes are the most diverse of all the Blocland staffers (and honestly, maybe the most diverse of anyone who has ever lived), I’ll be proving it taking it upon myself to post some wonderful musical picks every Friday from now until eternity.

Two songs a week…one old, one new, both EXTREMELY diverse in their sonic appeal. Do you like metal? Me too! Do you like folky stuff? So do I! How about Radiohead? Hell yeah! Pop??? …MmHmm.

With that, I invite you all to shed the chains of your narrow-minded musical prisons and join me on this journey through a little thing called diversity. Now, let’s Rock N’ Roll! (and some other genres too).

Volume 1
Something Old: The Walkmen – Another One Goes By

Something New:  Abadabad РTen Fingers

  • DFrye

    Needs more didgeridoo.

    • Doris Montgomery

      do you realize the cost? if you did you wouldnt say this

      • DFrye

        I don’t but I’m guessing they ain’t cheap. I assume that because hippies always have the most expensive stuff, ironically. Your question also suggests this is the case. I coined the phrase “deductive reasoning” to describe this phenomenon.

    A Hundred Miles Off is truly underrated.

    • LeMonjello

      My least favorite album of theirs, but may be time to reevaluate.

  • LeMonjello

    Fun Story: I saw The Walkmen when they were touring this album, and the band Mazarin were opening, so I got to hear the original and the cover of Another Goes By. Fun right? way fun.

  • Cooolin

    That is the best stock photo I have ever seen.

    • meat

          • LeMonjello

            I think you’re the one taking that squeezebox a *little* too seriously.

          • Blochead4real

            Perhaps this is why I don’t sleep well.

          • meat
