What I’m listening to this week

I suppose I ought to be giving a rat’s ass about the new NIN single, but it’s not doing anything for me. And if we had a time machine and took these two tracks back to 1994 Trent, I think it’s safe to say they would have been trashed, not even making it as deep album cuts or even B-sides.

Instead I’ve been on a Guns n Roses kick, which lead to discovering Izzy Stradlin’s solo albums from the last 10 years or so.

Including the following two singles from last year, which I’m digging way more than the new NIN thus far [I do have my fingers crossed that NIN album cuts will agree with me more once the album comes out, but it’s looking like a long shot].

“Upside” in particular has been stuck in my head for days.

Izzy Stradlin: still the hottest member of GnR after all these years. Er… I meant to say something non-sexist about his playing ability. Yeah. That’s what I meant.
