Mental sweep [Buffalo Daughter, Monster Island Czars]

Over the past week I have been listening to two songs at least once per day. They're pretty different.



#1) Buffalo Daughter - "Mirror Ball": I really did not know that Buffalo Daughter was this into repetitive jams. It's always impressive to hear how much noise three people can create, I really like the bass line of this song. It's kind of long but there's a good payoff. I need to listen to more Buffalo Daughter, this song is very Kraut-sounding but made with a clean, alternative rock sound.



#2) Monster Island Czars - "Escape From Monsta Isle": This is a track produced by MF DOOM, featuring his posse. The beat is great and the rappers are actually really good, even though most B-team posses are lame. How's that for a backhanded compliment?

It's what they're best at. Check out their album Pshychic, it's the best krautrock album ever produced. Guaranteed to blow your mind.
