New Music?

Post by c-dog »

Does anyone here have any reccomendations of new music?
I'm itchin' to introduce some new sounds to my bored eardrums. Any suggestions of new stuff, recently discovered old stuff, music you can't live without, Bulgarian Folk ditties that are too die for, whatever you think is worth a listen....

I've just been listening to some Mojave 3 on the iTunes.

You may or may not enjoy Bob Lind as well (the mp3s on that site are recent demos -- the 60s stuff and the upcoming album are where it's at).

Oh, and I've been telling people high and low about the Ditty Bops, who have a wonderful site with an album's worth of streaming music. Their songs are like a cross between That Dog and the Squirrel Nut Zippers, and the site looks like it's been designed by the same people who did Rasputina's site.

And Camper Van Beethoven's new album is necessary listening.

Although I have mentioned it elsewhere, the new Will Johnson solo "Vultures Await" is brilliant. And I dig the new American Music Club, 7 years in the making.

I just saw the aforementioned Will Johnson and American Music Club on Monday night! Oh, how I've missed Mark Eitzel and Co.! They rocked as much as a band mainly dedicated to quiet ballads about drunken loneliness can.

I'm digging the Neko Case live album as well. But then again, I love Neko.

The new Paul Westerberg record is OK, but that's one where I'm afraid my love of the Replacements is coloring my opinion of it. (Then again, he has made some pretty craptastic solo records. This is definitely on the "better" side of the spectrum.)

I guess that's good to hear. Come Feel Me Tremble was such a disappointment. Anyone heard the new Nick Cave? Also, I heard somewhere that part of the reason Mark's been outta the music biz for awhile is that he was getting a PhD in Biochemistry. Or maybe I made that up.

I just bought The Weakerthans' "Reconstruction Site" It was released last year and I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to pick it up....it's fantastic.

Yes, I love the Weakerthans, and the Wannadies also-so cute!

The one I felt bad about being so late on was Los Halos "Leaving Va".

The Wannadies? Are they related to the Weakerthans? Or Propaghandi?

No not related, but for some reason I link them thematically. They are completely irresistible.

good music

Post by rocklikemom »

I listen to a lot of:

ratatat, american analog set, beulah, nada surf, juana molina, broken social scene, nina simone, jon brion...


if you havent checked out audioscrobbler (http://www.audioscrobbler.com), do so now. they log everything you listen to and make a statistics page for you which displays your most played bands and songs... and from there you can find new music and new friends who like the music you like. it ALSO has this really great thing where you can listen to a streaming radio of your favorite stuff which oftentimes plays music you've never heard and will probably like...

The greats:

Death Cab for Cutie
Dismemberment Plan
Decemberists

if you've already exhausted this list, then I recommand:

Kind of Like Spitting
Rilo Kiley
Minus the Bear
Nada Surf
Harvey Danger
Netural Milk Hotel
Shins
John Vanderslice

if you find any and all related material by these musicians, then I think you will be happy.

Pffft, these DEFINATELY belong in "the greats".

Also, I recomend Of Montreal. Are any of you fans? They were part of the Elephant 6 Collective, along with Neutral Milk Hotel. I believe they are the last remaining band. Anyway, after loads of damn good albums they released what is being considered their best yet, not too long ago.

Check out a couple mp3s here http://ofmontreal.net/audiolounge.html

yeah, I like what I've heard from Of Montreal, tho I don't own any.

Bladerunner, isn't that list a bit, oh I dunno, a little Seattle/Pacific Northwest-centric? (Not that it ain't good stuff, n all.)

I forgot to mention The Eagles of Death Metal and (from Scotland) The Sluts of Trust. Especially if yer lookin fer somethin to piss off the parental units.
