The Strombo Show Playlist (Partial) & G12 Count Down:
May 02, 2010
I was able to tag some of the tracks while listening to the show 2x on Sunday, May 2nd.
But since I was hosting the chat session as well, I missed tagging a few as I was distracted & also a number don't render themselves to be "Shazam'd", as they are too new. Which, in a way is good.. as we listen to the Strombo Show for new music!
I'll put up the full/complete list as soon as I can, or get one.
Any Errors and/or Omissions are totally my fault!
IF.. you have any corrections or info that I'm missing, please comment or ping me & I'll update the blog list!
The partial playlist is below after the G12 Count Down, which is complete as it was taken from
The Strombo Show Website:
G12 Count Down
[ My NOTEs in italics ]
#1 Band Of Horses - Laredo
Band Of Horses – "Laredo" Free Download at Stereogum.com:
#2 Damian Marley & NAS - As We Enter
[ I haven't been able to embed it here for some reason.. working on that.. but here's The Official YouTube Video for:
Damian Marley and NAS - As We Enter.
(Personally.. I like the song w/out the video, but it really makes me want to spin fire in a massive way.. that's some dirty, sexy, hot, nasty, awesome music! };> ) ]
#3 Gord Downie - The East Wind
#4 Circle Research - Rock Creek Park
#5 M.I.A. - Born Free
[ NOTE: I've included the link for the new "M.I.A. - Born Free" video below... if you can watch it!
The video is highly NSFW (NOT SAFE FOR WORK) & should come with a fairly strong content *WARNING* as it would be considered extremely violent.
I believe this is MIA's Website?! Not sure as the video starts playing in full screen as soon as the page loads & then loops in right away again. NOT ideal (kinda bad website etiquette actually), but you should be able to scroll down & pause it if you need to before anything nasty comes up.
This is the Official MIA Bornfree Video: http://www.miauk.com
I think there are other versions floating around out there. I didn't hunt them all down. ]
#6 Crystal Castles - Celestica
#7 Morning Benders - Excuses
[ The Morning Benders made a: video for "Promises", (located on the Stereogum's website).
"Promises" was a former Morning Benders song on the G12 Count Down which was bumped off by the new one here.
And I'm searching for a free download link I thought I had for "Excuses"... if you know of it. Let me know! ]
#8 Dead Weather - Gasoline
#9 Darwin Deez - D.N.A.
#10 Yeasayer - O.N.E.
#11 Regina Spektor - No Surprises
#12 Tokyo Police Club - Breakneck Speed

G12 - #11: Regina Spektor - No Surprises
[ Not sure if there were other songs in here.. the 1st one I had tagged was "Yeasayer - O.N.E", I'm fairly sure all three were played in sequence.. (but don't quote me on it)!]

Janelle Monae (feat. Big Boi) - Tightrope
[ Rich Terfry was away this week, but his wife Emily (whose previous picks were VERY well rec'd) was here to share 3 of her selections with us.
She started off with a song that was her & Rich's wedding song:

Just like she seems! We like Emily's song's... she's cool. ]

Tom Waits - Jesus Gonna Be Here
Dead Boys - Ain't It Fun
[ Fan request for the Pumpkins.. ]

[ NOTE: The Album Side:
It was a unique one tonight.
A compilation put together by David Byrne & Fatboy Slim featuring ~22 other artists & it was an Imelda Marcos Tribute Album! Interesting.
It's titled "Here Lies Love" and here is the Wikipedia information for it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Here_Lies_Love.
Based on the track listing... we heard Side 1. ]

Tori Amos - You'll Be Taken Care of
Martha Wainwright - The Rose Of Tacloban
[ I think the "Big-Lie Down" started here approx. here: ]
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy & The Cairo Gang - Merciless And Great
Jeff Buckley - Lost Highway
[ End of the partial Playlist (as I know it..) ]
Also to come.. probably about 1x/week/~2 weeks (depending on my time commitments), I'll post one of the old Strombo Show playlists I have going back to ~May last year.. 2009 (or earlier if I can find them). So hopefully one old & one new playlist will make it up here on a semi-weekly, if not monthly basis.. (as I also have chat summaries to get up still. Eek).
Check the archives for those older playlists, as I will "post-date" them to the day after the original show "airing" date.
Thanks for your patience all.
As George says "#RecordsForRecordLovers!"
Yours in musical awesome-ness,
