John Cale's Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood. Most famous for being the co-founder of the Velvet Underground about half a century ago. Fans of The Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees will love his music.

The Script just came out with some new stuff.

I am obsessed with Sweden's iamamiwhoami.

There's enough old school stuff to keep you busy for years. There's nothing new that isn't crap.

Now get off my lawn!

I can tell you what I'm NOT listening to and that is anything having to do with country music. Country music is to music as shit is to toilet paper.....

The latest by: First Aid Kit (still on cloud 9 after their concert), The Walkmen, Brandi Carlile, Stars, Devin Townsend. And really warming up to the new Muse.

You have to leave the US market to get decent tunes these days. the USa is all Teenbeat or Country.

Here are a couple of new tunes (less than 24 months old)

Something light: Rumor: Slow

Something club: Zedd: Stars Come Out

Something hard: Dimmu Bogir: Gateways

Something sinister: Blutengel: Engelsblut

Tame Impala's new record "Lonerism" is getting a lot of great reviews.

by Anonymousreply 1410/13/2012

Warning: I've never been deep or cutting edge.

Hugo: His version of 99 problems on 'Fright Night' led me to 'Old Tyme Religion'. Five great songs.

Fun: It's pleasurable music as long as you stay away from the radio - overplayed.

Eric Hutchinson: Lovely voice.

Sia: Titanium is not hers and she gives good music.

Just listening to some tunes from Guillmont (Southern Winds) and Geographer (Blinders). Thanks to their new release I am also checking out Dragonette's latest album (love Ghost).

The new disc from The Script is very disappointing.

I love Muse's "Madness," Mumford & Sons "I Will Wait," Adam Levine's "Payphone," and Imagine Dragons "It's Time."

Just when I thought that good, original, meaningful music was gone, there are so many artists who are proving the corporate music industry wrong.

Thank goodness.

Muse, Mumford & Sons and Adam Levine (as if he isn't as manufactured as Rihanna) are on large, corporate record labels. You might not have heard of them otherwise.

I didn't like it so much at first, but now I am addicted to CAT POWER's new album, Sun. I saw live last week, and she did what she does live: a bit of awkwardness, a bit of charm, some off key singing, but then she killed it with a couple of tunes too.

Also, I love the new GRIZZLY BEAR album (at the link):

Thievery Corporation and Massive Attack (Mezzanine).

Why I'm back into the old school ambient I don't know.

I'm also listening to depressing, but haunting classical music: Satie's gnossiennes and nocturnes, Gorecki, etc.

Valleys, Ordinary Dream

Cult With No Name, Breathing

Mel Torme

"The Seventeenth Century," a group Glasgow.

Listen to 'The Gregorian Calendar' or 'Countryside.'

Another vote for Rudimental - Feel the Love.

Was looking for some classical music on i-tunes and discovered

150 All time greatest, most important absolutely essential classical masterpieces!!!

Really for $9.99 you get all of these pieces. Some are 10, 15, 20 minutes.

Really good deal. Lot of bang for your buck! 150 tracks for 9.99 WOW!!!

If you're a fan of 90s electronica, check out Saint Etienne's latest "Words and Music". I was not a huge fan of theirs but just caught their live show and was really impressed.

by Anonymousreply 4110/28/2012

New Saint Etienne and Hot Chip have been my most played albums this year.

Silencio by Laetitia Sadier is very good.

For some retro (but new) music in the jazz/blues of the 20s, 30s, 40s genre, Lavay Smith will do nicely, if you like that sort of thing.

Listening to Susanna Hoffs new solo stuff. I love her sound. Very 60's California vibe. Nice video for her song "Picture Me", she's ageless.

by Anonymousreply 4611/18/2012

Another nod to both the new Grizzly Bear album "Shields", and Kurt Vile's "Smoke Ring For My Halo". And I really like Gold Leaves "The Ornament".
