I can't recall the last music thread here, so...

I picked up Beirut's Gulag Orkerstar CD for Christmas, and it grows on me every time I listen to it. It's a 19-year-old ukelele- and trumpet-playing college student from New Mexico backed by assorted horns, percussion, mandolins and accordions. The result is something that sounds like some kind of brass band from the Balkans, but it really works. And "Postcards from Italy" is probably the prettiest song I heard all last year.
Their Myspace page, with 4 songs. Seriously, check out "Postcards."

The only new CD I've bought recently is Holly Cole - Temptation.

Other than that, just some older stuff transferred to my iPod.

Wilco - Being There
Belle & Sebastian - Dear Catastrophe Waitress
Led Zeppelin - Early Days & Latter Days Greatest Hits
Sonic Youth - Dirty

Oceanic, Panopticon, and In the Absence of Truth, all discs by ISIS.
At the Soundless Dawn and Every Red Heart Shines Toward the Red Sun, both by Red Sparowes

And that's pretty much it. My music listening has been a steady rotation of those five discs for the last few weeks.

There's a shocking amount of good hip-hop coming out of the Pacific Northwest at the moment, so I've been listening to these guys:

and

http://www.myspace.com/commonmarket

and also...

http://www.myspace.com/thesaturdayknights

All put on great great live shows.

Recent purchases for me were:

Mogwai - Mr. Beast



and



I got turned onto Mogwai from Miami Vice and it has a couple of great tracks on there. I'm new to The Shins, and I gather that this album goes in a bit of a different direction for them, but after a few listens it's already become a new favourite. Great sounds and songs throughout.

Nina Nastasia's latest is amazing.  She has finally put a good ALBUM together (she's had her moments, but her CDs were wildly inconsistent up until this point).



Regina's earlier stuff >>>>>>>>> her later stuff (although "On the Radio" is incredibly catchy).



And the latest from The Sounds (real cover not shown because it's NSFW).  It isn't blowing me away, but "Painted By Numbers" is a great song.

I bought 3 CDs around Christmastime -- Aimee Mann, Sarah McLaughlan, and James Taylor's Christmas albums, and realized I was old all at the same time.  Beyond that, have not bought a CD in ages -- which is odd since I used to regularly get 1-2 a week, and at one point thought my collection of 600+ CDs was a lot.

This thread did help remind me that Springsteen's Pink Cadillac somehow got stuck in my head.  To my MP3s!

Hey, tell me how it is...

I've been listening to the new Apoptygma Berzerk album.  It's interesting - their music has definately evolved (many would argue 'devolved').  I like it though!

People have said the same about SP's new stuff.  I personally really enjoy it, but it's certainly completely different from their nightmare-inducing intensity of "Too Dark Park" or "Last Rights". 

There's a bunch of 45 second song samples here.  Pretty similar to their last album, but a bit more dark and menacing (which is a good thing).  They're supposed to be touring starting in April, and I can't wait to see them again!

I downloaded the Armin Van Burren Year End mix CD1 and 2 that was played on DI and if anybody likes trance it is the best of 2006. Great CDs.
Also found a new DJ, Andy Gregory, who has some good mixes also. Along with another new DJ, Iqy, who has some good vocal mixes if you're into that.

Mostly just been listening to the shows on DI.

I don't really know why I post in these though, nobody else likes trance music.

Ehhh....really depends on my mood and how repetative the trance music is.

Straight trance?  Or other genres of Electronica?  In the trance vein, I can listen to the big names quite happily:  Oakenfold, Sasha, etc.  I just have more experience (and interest, honestly) with trip-hop and downtempo stuff.

Name some bands.  Any of these sound familiar?

-VNV Nation
-In Strict Confidence
-Neuroticfish
-Assemblage 23
-Apoptygma Berzerk
-NamNamBulu
-ATB
-Das Ich
-Covenant (you might really like them)
-DeVision
-Dismantled
-Hanzel und Gretyl (very hard, just thought I'd throw that in there..)
-Informatik
-Melotron
-KMFDM (and the MDFMK release)
-Seabound

All of those are in the industrial/futurepop/electronica/techno sort of style of music.  Of course, Oakenfold / Sasha & Digweed / etc. are trancey.

I would put most of those bands squarely in the Industrial or EBM camps, but ymmv.

Wait a sec...ATB is a band too?  Is there anything he can't do?!  slywink

I've heard of ATB and KMFDM the rest I haven't heard of. ATB has a lot of trancey songs.

I like a good portion of the main stream trance stuff:

Blank and Jones
Ferry Corsten
Paul Van Dyk
DJ GT and Project C(Vocal)
Agnelli and Nelson
Cosmic Gate
Junkie XL
John O'Callaghan
Marco V
Tiesto(standard)
Voodoo and Serano(Might like them, the song that was in the 1st blade I believe they did. Or they remixed it)
Sylver(Also vocal)


A problem with this genre though is you get a lot of one hit wonders, and there are so many good DJs and bands that it is difficult to find anyone. If you want more though I could keep listing people I like that is just some of the major ones I think with quite a few songs that I like.

Not really that different, but their sound has definitely matured over their 3 albums.  I've been a huge fan since well before Garden State or McDonald's ever got a hold of them.  icon_biggrin  One of my favorite bands, though, and I'm really enjoying the new album.

I really like The Black Keys, also, but I think I am liking each new album a little less than the last.  They are going from a really raw sound to leaning towards a more refined blues that I'm not as big a fan of.
