The premise for "Repeat Offenders" is simple--take 7 songs that I have played continuously over the course of the past week, and share them with you. Classics, new tracks, hits, rarities--anything goes, as long as I couldn't get it out of my head! Now to the songs, in no particular order.
Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings - "How Long Do I Have to Wait For You? (Remix)"
The original version of this Daptone Records classic is fantastic in its own right, but this remix has reeled me in even more.
Bob Dylan - "Isis (Live)"
One of my all-time favorite live renditions of a song compared to its original
Frank Black - "Headache"
Black Francis reverted his stage name for throughout his post-Pixies solo work, but the style remains the same--and that's a great thing.
Pavement - "Range Life"
Announced as Pitchfork headliners last week, the year of Pavement is now in full swing!
Arthur Russell - "A Little Lost"
Underrated musician, unheralded master of pensive and melancholic songwriting
Realpeople (Beirut) - "No Dice"
Zach Condron's electronic bedroom project received some playtime during the Superbowl (GMC commercial)
El-P - "The League of Extraordinary Nobodies"
With the announced hiatus of Def Jux last week, my favorite Def Jux track has been in heavy rotation
