Desert Isle Discs 

Joshua Jesty, singer-guitarist for This Is Exploding, offers five essentials.

1. Afghan Whigs,
1965

The bass slides, the drums kick in, and from there on out it's tight grooves, catchy lyrics, and a dirty, soulful feel.

2. Weezer,
Pinkerton

There's something about it that's not immediately accessible, but it grows and grows on you, until one day it feels like a friend you wish you'd known sooner.

3. Matthew Good Band,
Beautiful Midnight

It's everything a rock record should be and more.

4. The Dismemberment Plan,
Emergency and I

Everything a power-pop record suffering from severe dementia and a desire to be atonal yet groovy should be.

5. The Police, Message in a Box
Great unreleased songs about murder, cannibalism, and terrifying, dark love.
