Thursday Evening Jams

Old School Reggae Selection:
Here's some relatively old school reggae but it's a classic and I can't stop listening to this song lately. Taken straight off wikipedia (sorry I'm being lazy): "'Israelites' is a song written by Desmond Dekker and Leslie Kong that became a hit for Dekker's group, Desmond Dekker & The Aces. Although few could understand all the lyrics, the single was the first UK reggae number one and the first to reach the US top ten. It combined the Rastafarian religion with rudeboy concerns, lyrically comparing the travails of the Israelites with the overwhelming toil of modern-day poverty, to make what has been described as a "timeless masterpiece that knew no boundaries".


Experimental Rock Selection:
LCD Soundsystem:LCD Soundsystem is the musical project of American producer James Murphy, co-founder of dance-punk label DFA Records. The group's style is a mix of dance music and punk, along with elements of disco, experimental rock, and other styles. They have released three critically acclaimed albums, with 2010's This Is Happening also charting in the Billboard Top 10.
