I’ve been revisiting Madvillain’s 2004 behemoth of an album, Madvillainy this week. It’s difficult to choose a single track, but All Caps seems as good a place to start as any. Scott Walker’s 30th Century Man and Matthew E White’s Will You Love Me are stone-cold classics and feel appropriate for this almost-spring we’re enjoying. From there, you get an indie song, Bibio’s Curls, from this year, some Biggie, Mingus and polishing it off, a cover of Arthur Russell by Peter Broderick.
