    Default What Are You Listening To At The Moment?

    Ok, I thought it might be good to have a music thread where you share what you're listening to / good albums / things other people might not have heard of or gotten round to listening to yet.

    My favourite albums I have on just now are

    Grizzly Bear - Shields (brilliant melodic album, with some hints of John Lennon Instant Karma era stuff in there, beautiful melodies and vocal lines)
    Alt-J - A Different Wave (just won the Mercury Music Prize, not that that means anything anymore, but its a good album, some will hate it)
    Deerhoof - Breakup Song (this is completely off the beaten track, very different but immensely fun and brilliant musicianship)
    Graham Coxon - A+E (Blur's guitarist is so much more than just being Blur's guitarist. Love his new album)
    Jack White - Blunderbuss (He's just brilliant, Jack White. Bits of Motown, the blues which I ordinarily don't like, and his own unique slant on lyrics and guitar playing. Brilliant)
    Richard Hawley - Standing at the Sky's Edge (He's usually a crooner, but has turned up the guitars loud. Very atmospheric)
    Tame Impala - Lonerism (it sounds like 70's prog rock with massive synths and guitars!)
    Guess who's back...

    Same as for last 35 years. I swear no music has been written since 1976

    What did you listen to 35 years ago?

    Its funny, I went through a phase of denying new stuff too. I was sure that everything I needed to listen to had been written int he 90's. I was wrong

    I had Yes - The Yes Album on today.

    They wrote music in the 1990s? Chris Kristofferson today.

    Anyone listening to anything new then? I'm enjoying Currents by Tame Impala. Especially the opening track Let It Happen

    Last night it was Husker Du's "Zen Arcade" and the first two Moby Grape albums (first one's great, second not so great).I may just be going through a phase of listening to bands with ridiculous names.
