Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Moral Distortion

"all their songs sound the same to me but i like the song they do."

Broadcast - Tears in the Typing Pool

"My fave song off their album tender buttons, the rest of the album has some sick thick sawtoothy synths but this tracks a wee break from that."

Micachu and the Shapes - Guts

"the final tune (apart from hardcore which is cheekily hidden) off one of my favourite albums 'jewellery' the production and arrangement choices throughout this album are amazing and at times rlly chaotic like the end of the world i guess."

Godflesh - Like Rats

"i heard the mark kozelek version of this before the godflesh one, this is much scarier."

Boredoms - Super You

"so heavy."

The Cranberries - Ode to My Family

"classic cranberries tune, a mellower sadder choice i guess, love dolores o'riordan's voice and how you can hear her accent which can be a rarity. picked it cause at the end of the world youd maybe wanna b with your family ? i dont know."

Sun Kil Moon/Jesu - Good Morning My Love

"i really love it when mark sings with heavy guitars."

Carpenters - Goodbye To Love

"i reckon this is the nicest guitar solo i've ever heard."

Stiff Little Fingers - Suspect Device

"the first song of inflammable material their great debut album ! picked it cause its about bombs sorta and maybe that'll be how the world ends."
