10 records t
By Scott Sedia
Daily Arts Editor
We can only hope this reaches you in
time, kids. Before you pack. Before move-
in day. Before the entire dorm sees you
unload that box of Smash Mouth and Reba
McEntire CDs, before you hang that
washed-out O-town poster above the bunk
beds, before you ask the DJ at that first
house party to put on some Air Supply.
This is college damn it, and long past
time you found some decent tunes. Cam-
puses have long been havens for independ-
ent, cutting-edge music and you owe it to
yourselves to catch up before it's too late
and you find yourself haplessly trying to
explain to your own kids what you ever
saw in Saliva. You deserve better than the
trite slop Top 40 radio and MTV have
been force feeding ya'.
So start hitting up Ann Arbor's famous
used record stores, start listening to stu-
dent radio, start going to little shows in
small dirty places where only 15 people
come. Start caring.
Here are 10 lesser heard, field-tested
dorm room classics to help you jump start
your new found taste. A present from your
wiser, older brothers at Daily Arts.
"Look under your bed. It'll set you
free." One day you will be cool indeed.

Big Star - #1 Record / Radio City
(1972 / 1974) One of the greatest two-for-
one deals ever repackaged for CD, here we
have the first two albums by Memphis'
brilliant but chronically unlucky power-
pop shoulda-been superstars. R.E.M., the
Replacements and Jack White made
careers of ripping Alex Chilton off, and
"Thirteen" and "September Gurls" are the
perfect soundtrack to everybody's post-
adolescence.
Pixies - Doolittle (1989) Cliche Alert!
Cobain listened to this band! His songs
sound like Black Francis'! These Boston
noise junkies polished their often-copied
soft-loud dynamics and screamed like
crazy about Salvador Dali movies and
monkeys ascending to heaven.
Tribe Called Quest - The Low End
Theory (1991) You should seriously con-
sider writing your thesis on this flawless
blend of finely aged bebop samples and
forward thinking rhymes. Mr. Busta steals
the show on closer "Scenario" when he
growls like "a dungeon dragon."
Husker Dii - New Day Rising (1985)
Hardcore punk's finest moment is strange-
ly also its popiest. Dueling songwriters
Grant Hart and Bob Mould remember the
Ramones' love of '60s bubblegum as
much as their raw metallic crunch.
U.N.K.L.E. - Psyence Fiction (1999)

rom Creed
Thom Yorke, Mike D, Badly Drawn Boy
and Richard Ashcroft all guest on this
spacey trip-hop masterpiece from DJ
Shadow and Mo' Wax's James Lavelle.
This experimental pop culture blender
pures the best parts of hip-hop, electroni-
ca and Britpop into one delicious and
nutritious listen.
Elvis Costello and the Attractions -
This Year's Model (1978) Costello plays
his angry, heartbroken nerd persona to
the hilt through classics like "No Action"
and "Radio, Radio," while the fresh-off-
the-road Attractions miraculously gel
into a dangerously tight band capable of
doing EC's bitter epics justice.
Handsome Boy Modeling School -
So...How's Your Girl? (1999) The two
giants of hip-hop production, Prince
Paul (De La Soul) and Dan the Automa-
tor (Gorillaz) combine forces to create a
jaw-dropping set of sonic ground break-
ing, genre-jumping tracks. By turns
hilarious, insightful and sexy; brilliant
throughout.
The Flaming Lips - Clouds Taste
Metallic (1995) The height of this Okla-
homa band's crazed Neo-Psychedelia
guitar period. Beneath the squall of trip-
py noise, eccentric production and goofy
song titles ("Psychiatric Explorations of
the Fetus with Needles") lies an oddly

Courtesy o,
So good it should have been mine.

comforting slice of unpredictable
humanity and vision.
Sleater-Kinney - Call the Doctor
(1996) This Northwest punk trio defined
and then obliterated the 'riot grrrl' label
with their sophomore release. Feminist
tirades are braced by undeniably excit-
ing and powerful rock 'n' roll.
Spoon - Kill the Moonlight (2002)
One of last year's best, these Texas indie
kings finally get over the death of alt-
rock and being dropped by Elektra.
Dirty organs, dense word play and
smiles abound.
