The Mad Conductor - Renegade Space Rock

Ex-lead singer of No Cash's hip-hop project. It's truly eclectic, stylistically and lyrically. Really clever rhymes coupled with tons of mixed genres and influences. In the first track alone, you'll have first wave ska, funky bass lines, what seems to be an accordion, and a constant unexplainable genius that continues throughout the whole album. Or if you already know this, enjoy my favorite album by them.

1. Venom
2. Bayou Moon Stompin'
3. Reactor Number 4
4. All Things Considered
5. Mr. Cacciatore
6. Feed the Beast
7. Destapadores
8. Cot in a Wormhole
9. Delirium Aquarium

The Misfits - Walk Among Us

I'm seeing the Misfits for the third time in my life tonight, and in honor of that, I'm posting their arguably most classic LP, Walk Among Us. As far as their live show now: they may lack Danzig, and a few things may have changed, but they are still super fun, and nothing beats singing along to "Braineaters". Mr. Danzig is a shitbag now anyway.

1. 20 Eyes
2. I Turned Into A Martian
3. All Hell Breaks Loose
4. Vampira
5. Nike A Go Go
6. Hatebreeders
7. Mommy Can I Go Out & Kill Tonight? (Live)
8. Night of the Living Dead
9. Skulls
10. Violent World
11. Devil's Whorehouse
