Get Better Soon, Laura

My sister has been sick recently, and seeing as she is a New York rock queen, here's some mp3's for her benefit (and everyone else's too). I don't buy much rock music these days, so these are all kind of old, but I like them, and hopefully you will as well.

Sonic Youth - Chapel Hill - From their 1992 album Dirty, a melodic one with Thurston Moore sounding whingey. I like it.

Husker Du - Books About UFO's - From the 1985 album New Day Rising, which was Husker Du's big switch from their older hardcore punk styles to a more melodic thing. This is about a girl who reads books about UFO's. And it even has pianos. Fun.

Fugazi - Turnover - Shouty stuff from the Washington DC hardcore legends Fugazi. Off the 1990 album Repeater.

Dinosaur Jr. - Start Choppin' - From the 1993 album Where You Been. Main dude J. Mascis does his strangled cat voice, some pretty riffs , and a monumental guitar solo.

Good God, Pearsall! You've just posted the other soundtrack to my early 90s. What a great selection. A little weird too because I was thinking of doing a hey all you downloaders, why don't you leave some comments once in a while post on my blog, and I was going to use Dinosaur Jr's "Out There" and A-Zone's "Calling All the People."

Haha, I was going to use 'Out There' but chose 'Start Choppin' instead at the last minute.
