Thread: What Are You Listening To At The Moment?

  1. #1

    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.

    The 1982 extended play of Soft Cells, 'Say Hello, Wave Goodbye.' Love it!

    Earlier, I was listening to a live gig by Alice Cooper from 1986.
    Followed by Tarkus by Emerson Lake and Palmer.
    I'm now halfway through Transformer by Lou Reed - I need some easy listening stuff every now and then.

    Some cool easy-listening muzak there, ianmac. No Bon Jovi in there though??

    Anyway, this week I have mostly been listening to Halestorm:



    Seriously, if this voice doesn't crush you into crumbling dust, then you're dead to music:

    "It makes my blood burn with metal energy..."

    Yeah, good voice. Can't say the same for the songs tho !
    And I'll leave Bon Jovi and other wifey rock to yourself.
    I am proud to say that I do not own any Bon Jovi recordings.

    They're one of the worst bands ever to record music! But each to their own

    I went to see Bowling for Soup last month.

    One of their support bands was called Patent Pending (I had never previously heard of them).

    I really liked them. Singer was very charismatic. They played a really catchy tune called douchebag. I bought their CD for a fiver on the way out. It has been in my car CD player since then.

    I love it when I unexpectedly discover a new band that I like.

    Best of Blur
    Sigur Ros - Takk
    Alt-J - A Different Wave
    Muse - The 2nd Law

    My son went to see them on their recent tour as well. I was amazed because he generally spends ALL his time listening to Muse.

    Do you like Blur? Reason I ask is that the "Best of" compilations they release are nowhere near as good as the album tracks across the whole lot... I can do you a great Blur playlist - they're my favourite band really.

    Today - the new Soundgarden one - absolutely awful
    The Beatles - Abbey Road (the best medley ever )
    Guess who's back...

    Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine

    the scary thing is - it still sounds fresh, musically and politically...!

    Just been listening to The Impossible Dream by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band.
    Fantastic album by a Fantastic (Sensational) band.

    Well, it is St Andrews day.
