Listening to a classic album I'm surprised is still on the board but it's a bit of a downer and I think I'll pass on it too.

There's one band(s) that is always well-represented in these type of drafts that is shockingly undrafted.  I'm seriously considering them with my next pick even though I've only listened to them in fits and starts.

16.29 Os Novos Baianos, Acabou Chorare (1972)

Preta Pretinha
Tinindo Trincando

I'd be shocked if it was on anyone's draft radar, but given my level of comfort with the chances my other favorites will last, it's time for some Brazilian music. Acabou Chorare is one of the better-known and most highly-regarded albums in Brazilian pop music, and for good reason. It's 39 minutes of pure manna from heaven, and picking the two songs for the playlist was probably the toughest one so far for me. It's genuinely great from start to finish. Brasil Pandeiro, just like "Preta Pretinha", is an all-time classic and emblematic of Brazilian music as a whole. Mistério do Planeta is beautiful too. Ended up going with "Tinindo Trincando" to pair with "Preta" to feature two different sides of their sound.

RIP Moraes Moreira (passed away in April)

(alliteration in both playlist picks and in the singer's name, yo)

Bloody Kisses - Type O Negative (1993)

another 90s highlight for me, Peter Steele took the piss outta every/anything in his way - gloom, doom, sludge, thrash, goth, metal - all under one roof!

the Drab Four cranked out a sickly savage slab of black humor, tongue tucked firmly in Pete's steely cheek - can have this on loop and never be disappointed - winner from first listen - it's one of the more unique platters i've ever heard. 

Black No. 1  greatest poke at the scene gurls one could ever hear ... i was there, some (many?) deserved this dress down (note, this is the 4+ minute vid version - included here to give Pete his due).

Summer Breeze  because who never said "if they slow Seals and Crofts down to a dirge it would be THE most intense sounding ####!"  who?  blowwwwwing ... with the Jazzzzmin ... in my miiiind

R.I.P.  PETE ✌

 

Big Brother is doing work. Live Type O popping up on an afternoon scroll through Facebook. Couldn't help but laugh.

You're all going to get ads for mulch and for Mrs. R's favorite restaurants.

16.ee - at Budokan - Cheap Trick (1979)

When I was in college many moons ago, Cheap Trick was one of the few bands that could unite the Clash/Costello and Journey/Styx wings of the dorm.  We're all alright, we're all alright.

If you listen to the album at low volume, it sounds distant and kind of muddy but magic happens when you turn it way up, especially the all killer/no filler side 2.

Ain't That a Shame

Surrender

Alright, with @wazoo11 already drafting the other one and @rockaction doing hip hop and the pop music drafters otherwise maybe few and far between, this may be an overdraft but this album is pretty much perfect IMO (though I may also have taken Melodrama first) Plus if Mrs. NV is on the island with me she needs it there and she helped mulch this afternoon.

Also, 'Ribs' is the best Lorde song by miles. 'Royals' is like the 7th best song on this.

Lorde - Pure Heroine (2013)

The drink you spilt all over me
'Lover's Spit' left on repeat

Tracklist

1.    "Tennis Court"    3:18
2.    "400 Lux"    3:54
3.    "Royals"    3:10
4.    "Ribs"    4:18
5.    "Buzzcut Season"    4:06
6.    "Team"   3:13
7.    "Glory and Gore"    3:30
8.    "Still Sane"    3:08
9.    "White Teeth Teens"    3:36
10.    "A World Alone"     4:54

I've always wanted to give non-Royals Lorde a spin, looking forward to this.

Glory and Gore lyrics... timely?

There's a humming in the restless summer air
And we're slipping off the course that we prepared
But in all chaos, there is calculation
Dropping glasses just to hear them break
You've been drinking like the world was gonna end (it didn't)

RIP Moraes Moreira (passed away in April)

I'm gonna go west coast with my round 16 pick. I'm trying to avoi compilations, but I can't pass this one up.  This is a collection of songs recorded between 1968 and 1978, so not sure what goes in the spreadsheet.  

16.04:  Sicodélicos, Los Destellos ... To this day, Peruvian psychedelic Cumbia still does not get enough love.

JFC, I'm about 5 minutes into posting (gathering links and whatnot - lots of whatnot) and my computer is doinking the eff out with new replies to this thread. Breathe, y'all.

Anyway, as always, difficult narrowing down to two songs.  Highly recommend listening to all of it.

Onsta la Yerbita

El Oasis ... choose this song because you can hear the source of Deee-Lite's famous riff.

So...much...chalk...

16.34 Eagles - Hotel California

It's so overplayed, but an all time favorite of mine.  No brainer here.

Songs are Try and Love Again best song off the record imo.

And Hotel California.  Skip it if you are sick of it. 

 

@wikkidpissah is ITC

This is one of the two I mentioned a couple of years ago - when we started this draft - as being surprised it's still out there. Nice pick.

I need something a little more recent since I’m pretty much all 70s/80s/90s on my island. It’s got a couple bigger hits, but I like the whole album for a chill vibe. Yo Mama selects:

 

16.22 - Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (2009)

1 - Lisztomania

2 - 1901

3 - Fences

4 - Love, Like a Sunset, Pt. 1

5 - Love, Like a Sunset, Pt. 2

6 - Lasso

7 - Rome

8 - Countdown

9 - Girlfriend

10 - Armistice

 

The tribe has spoken and narrowed my song choices from 4 down to 2:

Lisztomania

Armistice

 

 

Updated song choices

Start in the upper left corner and highlight all the quotes you want.  A box will pop up on the lower right saying "quote selection."  Click it.

Alright. This #### has gone on long enough. 

16.33 Mothership Connection - Parliament (1975)

Time to get funky on Smith Island. I'll take it easy on the playlist and pick two shorter songs.

"Mothership Connection"

"Tear The Roof Off The Sucker"

 

That's the one I was referring to about 30 minutes ago.  It's right there with Iggy Pop on the nerd favorite rankings.
