Playlist: Andy Williams (Every Time I Die)

The Every Time I Die guitarist reveals his current iPod playlist.
Root for Ruin—Les Savy Fav
“A perfect record from a band that gets better with every release. Probably one of the most underrated and underappreciated bands ever.”
This Is Happening—LCD Soundsystem
“James Murphy is this generation’s David Bowie. Bold statement, I know, but this guy is a genius. He can make any normal riff a catchy chorus because his voice is so good and the guy understands a hook.”
Heavy Breathing—Black Breath
“For me, metal has become safe and lame. I remember hearing Left Hand Path by Entombed and thinking they were gonna saw me in half and eat me. Well, that feeling came back when I heard this band and saw them live. Take the triggers off the drums, shove your 808-drops up your ass and buy this record. It’s perfect metal.”
Life Swallower—Alpha & Omega
“Crossover hardcore was a big part of my life. In the last few years, bands really let that slip. Alpha & Omega are the best of hardcore and metal. If this record had come out in the late Eighties, I would put their poster on my wall. Hell, if they had one now I probably would.”
Pony Express Record—Shudder to Think
“Guitarist Nathan Larson is a god. The melodies he wrote on this record are just retarded. The guitar tone is perfect, too: punchy, crunchy, and smooth when it has to be. Pony Express Record is a permanent fixture on my playlists.”
