The G-Man Random 5


With all the music we have collected over the years it is easy to sometimes lose track of great albums that lie dormant in our collections. Every week I place my mp3 player on random and list the first five songs to appear no matter how odd they may be. Results can vary but that is the magic of...

The G-Man Random 5


1. Song : Hole
Artist : 65daysofstatic
Album : Hole (E.P.)
Year : 2005

One of the best live instrumental acts out there and the title track of their 2005 E.P. cuts straight to the chase of what the Sheffield boys are all about.



2. Song : Christina's Farm
Artist : Antony And The Johnsons
Album : Swanlights
Year : 2010

A dramatic change of pace here with Antony slowing everything down .



3. Song : Untitled #6
Artist : Sigur Ros
Album : ()
Year : 2002

You either "get" Sigur Ros or you do not. Personally I can find no fault with this band. "Untitled #6" (a.k.a. "E-Bow") shows a darker side of the band from Iceland.




4. Song : Butt-House Blondies
Artist : Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Album : Before Today
Year : 2010



5. Song : Hope
Artist : Bjork
Album : Volta
Year : 2007

The version below is live from Glastonbury and features Malian legend Toumani Diabate.
