Out To Lunch Friday Playlist

Today out to lunch, a spirited grit sandwich. It started when I was listening to this new Vandermark 5 record Beat Reader this week, and was wondering who played the screaming guitar bits at the five minute mark in the song Speedplay below. Well, of course, that's no guitar, it's cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm. And it's pretty freaking beautiful.

Let's roll that track around in our mouths with some kindred vintage(?) tracks from Bikini Kill and Minor Threat, a song from the punishing Behold... The Arctopus 2007 guilty pleasure Skullgrid, and another oddball from last year: Charlie Hunter and Bobby Previte welcoming John Medeski to their third outing as Groundtruther.

We'll head into Super Bowl Weekend with another track from Beat Reader that somehow harnesses the powers of Willie the Pimp, the Funky Drummer, and Mr. Bungle's Platypus within the first two minutes. And then things get kinda weird.
