    new music

    Sign in to disable this ad
    i just ordered some cds from amazon, and was thinking of a little game we could play.

    1. list the type(s) of music you're into

    2. list the last 10 albums you've bought, listing them in order from favorite to least favorite.

    here's mine:

    1. progressive, metal, fusion.

    2. meshuggah "obzen"
    opeth "watershed"
    the ocean "precambrian"
    benea reach "alleviat"
    neurosis "given to the rising"
    behold the arctopus "skullgrid"

    unrankable, since i just ordered them:

    the ocean "aeolian"
    at war with self "torn between dimensions"
    intronaut "void"
    collapsar "integers"

    the object here is to hopefully get turned on to some music i wouldn't have found on my own. i'm always looking for something new.

    GO!!!

    You could go to an indie site and stream some music for free.

    You're always welcome to go to mine. Hmmm, with your choice of genres, I'd have to say that fusion is as close as I come. I'm about as metal as tin foil.

    But I do fuse harp, git, flute, bass, drums and organ together.

    Listen to:
    "End of Days"

    "Low Down Dude"

    "All There Is" use to be called Xeries. That one and "Get There" are nice spirituals that kind of rock.

    They're free to stream, but if you want a CD, I could mail you one. Just pick a dozen songs out of the 55 that I park at Soundclick. A few are remixes, so call it 50 songs.

    My favorites are kind of eclectic, like "Dogs On The Beach" and "Catwalking On Keys"

    Thank you! Now I have a concise way to describe that kind of singing/screaming. (Probably old news to most, but I've never heard that phrase before; fits perfectly.)

    Folk/Rock/Indie

    Bright Eyes - Cassadaga (just some very well written songs)
    Bob Dylan - Modern Times (a collection of blues songs, nice to play in the background while drinking a coffee and reading a book)
    The Band - The Collection
    The National - Boxer
    Ryan Adams - Easy Tiger (NOT Bryan Adams. Some darn good songwriting)
    The Felice Brothers - Tonight at the Arizona (a study of solid americana songs)
    Wilco - Sky Blue Sky (very warm sounding, reminiscent of grateful dead)
    Bruce Springsteen - Magic (very good comeback, mix is kind of "wall of sound" - ish)
    The Arcade Fire - Neon Bible (I can only describe it as "interesting". Kind of bowie-ish at times, lots of reverb, recorded in a slew of old churches mostly in Budapest, Hungary)
    Blitzen Trapper - Wild Mountain Nation (an interesting blend of country, rock, and certiain kinds of electronic elements)
    The Wheat Pool - Township (ass kicking alternative country rock. Reminiscent of early Wilco with more zing to it).

    My reccomendation if you want to try something new, The Arcade Fires "Neon Bible" or Wilcos "Sky blue sky". In fact, if you are interested I can send you a copy of either cd (burned, but no worries, I have the originals, I dont donwload) all for the sake of spreading around new music.

    Do you see the flags of freedom, what color are they now? Do you think that you believe in yours more than they do in theirs somehow? - Neil Young
