Inspired by my new Tunabunny acquisitions, I’m only listening to music that’s allowing itself space to breathe today.

The following tracks are all taken from my current iTunes library (which was completely overhauled less than a month ago). Just one song from each featured band, otherwise it would be getting ridiculous.

Sonic Youth – The Diamond Sea (25.48)
Now. This. Is. How. You. Do. It. (It’s still a pop song!)

Kraftwerk – Autobahn (22.43)
A four-minute version was a US Top 40 hit. Some songs you don’t ever want to stop. (The following is taken from their Tomorrow’s World 1975 performance)

The Dirtbombs – Bug In The Bassbin (21.22)
Taken from the forthcoming album Party Store, this track will have you begging for release long before it’s finished. It’s no ‘I Feel Love’, that’s for sure. Oddly, however, most of the rest of the album is: a solid-gone, stripped-back disco groove. The ghost of Chic lives on.

Can – You Doo Right (20.27)
The greatest rock’n’roll song ever recorded. My one complaint is that it’s not long enough. Seriously.

Tunabunny – Outer Space Is The Center Of The Earth (19.05)
Demented and extravagant and often impenetrable space rock imaginings from Athens’ finest former Pavement tribute band. It really gets going around the 13-minute mark. Taken from the split 12-inch with Hulaboy.
