You know how it is. Sometimes you get so hell bent on getting things done that you forget to let yourself wander. And you probably know what a relief it is when you just succumb to goofing off. Then you will understand that instead of the usual half assed cornucopia of mp3 links, videos and the like; today I am just going to strongly recommend a blog that has a ton of good stuff, Nitro-Retro. A whole mess of soul, funk, international, beat, and mod type stuff, and the majority of it relatively obscure and really good, worthy of an entirely random click. The first three below were found on two back to back posts from September 2010. That should give you an indication of how much stuff is on there. The fourth song below is the original version of "Ramblin' Rose," the song the MC5 covered. All four, grade A stuff. Really, you should just budget a couple hours, go there and get lost. I did, and it felt good.
