During the winter of 2007, it started with this:

List six songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions along with your six songs…

I liked writing it, reading others’ lists, and the ensuing conversations so much that I wrote one weekly, every Tuesday, for a year or so. After a job transfer and its related upheaval, I abandoned it, but now… I’m bringing it back!

So without further ado, the Tuesday Six for 2/15/11. Won’t you post yours?

White Lies – Bigger Than Us
( and Holy Ghost …aaaand Turn the Bells. Ok the whole album.)
Completely enamored with this album. I’m very wary of mainstream radio playing the crap out of it and making them the 2010-11 answer to She Wants Revenge (what happened to them, anyway?)

Mumford & Sons – Thistle & Weeds
Have come back to this album after an intense initial crush (and subsequent cooling) last year. This track just stands out for its slight…creepiness.

Killing Joke – Depth Charge
Great for running sprints and thinking about how humanity is ruining itself. …I kid. (sort of.)

Metallica – Wherever I May Roam
Recently heard this on the radio, and suddenly it’s back in rotation.
Do you really need a link?

Covenant – Lightbringer (Speedrun remix)
Sucker for swedes in suits… when they’re making good music. SWEEEEEDISH STYLE! *throws bacon*

Amon Amarth – Guardians of Asgaard
(or as I like to call it, “Guardians of Ascot”)
Unapologetic viking metal. Literally. Kind of hilarious. Great for rampaging through small villages.
