It's always good to grab music ideas from other people.  What is your current favorite music?

I've been listening to the Garden State soundtrack a lot recently - fantastic downbeat indie rock.  I love the song Winding Road, by Bonnie Somerville (who, by the way, is a hot actress: WTF singing a song??).  Dipping into my girlfriend's 'EzCheese' genre, I've been digging Suddenly, by The Bogmen, too.

Random, yes, but those are my highlights.  Anybody who is into mellow indie music and hasn't heard the Garden State soundtrack should check it out.

Must have listened to "Forever" by Papa Roach about 30 times this last week, went out and bought the cd just for that song. It really hits home with my ex still trying to get back into my life after all this time.

You know the background music in the Geico caveman commercial? Röyksopp is the group that sings that. Melody A.M. is the album.

I'm still on an Opeth kick and listen to Ghost Reveries at least once a day.

I've also been listening to a lot of industrial in preparation for shows the next few weeks.  Seeing Frontline Assembly on May 15, Skinny Puppy on May 29, and VNV Nation on June 20.  Gonna be an incredible few concert weeks!

I forgot to mention that... I freakin love that album.  (The second album stinks, by the way.)  The man singing in that song is from the downbeat band Kings of Convenience, from Bergen, Norway.

The song in the commercial is Remind Me.  The version that I prefer is called Remind Me (Someone Else's Mix) and is featured the music video, which is my favorite video ever.  In fact, I threw it up on my (new) blog the other day: http://phasetwelve.com/2007/04/28/my-favorite-music-video/

The new Bright Eyes album.

It's a lot more alt-country-ish, but I'm digging it.

The Tossers put out a great Irish folk/punk album, Agony. For anyone who likes the Pogues or Flogging Molly, they're definitely worth checking out.

I'll definitely have to check that out.  I've been listening to Flogging Molly for the last week straight.

That one won't be out until the middle of June, so I haven't heard it yet but I will certainly buy it.  Jack is also working on a new Raconteurs album due out early next year I think.

Rise Against.

Both The Sufferer and the Witness and Siren Song of the Counter-Culture have commanded presence in my car CD player for ages now.

And at home I've been listening to a lot of Nine Inch Nails. The Downward Spiral, The Fragile, and of course the new disc are all getting repeat plays.

In a new and surprising twist I've really been digging alt/rock-country and classic country.  It's actually inspired me to set up my recording gear and start writing songs again:

Cross Canadian Ragweed
Drive-By Truckers
Reckless Kelly
Slobberbone
Steve Earle
The Old 97's
Uncle Tupelo
Willie Nelson

Also picked up new releases from:
Air
Kings of Leon
Modest Mouse
Wilco (well, it's out in a couple weeks anyway, but I'm looking forward to it)

I haven't picked up anything new lately, so it's pretty much whatever plays next on my iPod/WinAmp.

Wow. Good batch of names, there. If you like those singers and bands, you may also want to check out Buddy Miller, Kevin Welch and Robert Earl Keen. They're maybe a little bit more "country" than "alt", but along the same lines.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I've heard of Robert Earl Keen as he's a local favorite.  I'll have to check these guys out on iTunes.  I do tend to favor the more rock focused bands, but I'm not adverse to some quality country, either.  I'm not ashamed to admit I'm a big fan of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Dwight Yoakum.  And Hank Sr. just goes without saying.

I swear, Golden State is probably the most popular soundtrack ever...

I've been enjoying 'The Bicycle Thief' and I'm going to pimp Ataxia again, the new album should be out in a week or two I think.

I'll +1 Queens of the Stone Age, I've been listening to Kyuss more lately though.

I think I read it in the most recent Rolling Stone.  I don't remember exactly what it said but they are going for a bit of a different vibe (country-ish?) with the next album I guess.
