What (newish) music are you listening to these days?

Although not exactly new, yesterday I was jamming Balkan Beat Box for 8 hours of autocad.

Jollie Holland is amazing.

New artist by the name Darkside just put out a great album.

Alien 8

Red City Radio, RVIVR, Off With Their Heads… all three bands have released new albums this year and have maintained or surpassed the expectations they set with their previous releases. Also, I'm anxious for the Tony Sly tribute album to be released in a couple days, and Iron Chic's new album set for next week. 

For music without vocals, Caspian released something last year and have a new EP on the way.

Oct 28, 13 12:21 am

Alt-J, The Naked & Famous, The XX, Stars, Bloc Party, Austra, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Haim, Bastille, fitz and the tantrums, arcade fire.

Oct 28, 13 12:42 am

The Captain and Tenille.  Everything old is newish again...

definitely been on a bit of a Neil Young kick myself..

also Red Hot + Fela with a bunch of indie rockers (MMJ, tUnE-yArDs, Alabama Shakes et al) covering Fela Kuti songs is killer.

I have listened to this on repeat many time in last few weeks.

anyone been digging Shabazz Palaces, 'Lese Majesty' ?

Need to pick this one up... even more "out there" than previous album(s). Also, the photo is great!

Jul 28, 14 6:18 pm

LITZ4Formz excellent, I love alt-j. Can't wait for their next album this September. I also enjoy arcade fire. Neil young is great. I heard people hate his concerts however, because he doesn't play any

Jul 28, 14 6:19 pm

Continued; play any songs, he just jams on his guitar for hours straight. I see no problem...

NAM DID YOU SAY - The Sword....stoner metal or whatever the kids call it - Black Sabbath as a style... hell yeah. Check out Orange Goblin sometime if you like Sword, or Dozer, or Acid King, or Sleep. Just a dark cloud of metal!

Jul 29, 14 10:17 am

The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures, Beastie Boys, Gorillaz.

And I throw in some classical music sometimes too.

@sakshi definitely a fan of Chicano Batman!

Aug 6, 14 10:30 am

New music since the last post...currently working its way through my speakers. 

Warpaint, London Grammar, The War On Drugs(album of the year), Sylva Esso, Jenny Lewis, Cut Copy, Future Islands, Afghan Whigs, Todd Terje...

@CD.Arch, pre-ordered Alt-Js new album, love their new direction. I was honestly worried about how they would sound as a trio but it seems like they'll be just fine. I've seen them perform on 3 continents and I'll see them for the 5th time in November, amazing live band. 

Aug 6, 14 11:24 am

dont  judge me bur new beyonces album is really good :) for the rnb fans 

Aug 6, 14 11:28 am

LITS4FormZ I had no clue that they were only a trio now. I am very jealous that you got to see them play live. I heard Tesselate and Breezeblocks and I was hooked. I bought their album and listened to it for days straight. They are great!

Neil Young and Crazy Horses' Greendale - Grandpa's Interview

The noise was unfamiliar...
A walkie talkie squealed
Generators were runnin'
Vans parked in the field

Tv crews and cameras
They wanted to interview grandpa on the porch
They came through the gate and up on the lawn
Knockin' down edith's tiki torch

Grandpa saw them there
Looking through the venetian blind
"those people don't have any respect
So they won't get any of mine

I ain't gonna talk about jed...
I don't watch channel 2 or 6 or 9
I don't have time to talk that fast
And it ain't my crime

It ain't an honour to be on tv
And it ain't a duty either
The only good thing about tv
Is shows like 'leave it to beaver'

Shows with love and affection
Like mama used to say
A little mayberry livin'
Can go a long way"

(only 35 and feel this way already...)

No, you guys are way off – it’s “Speedo” by The Cadillac’s (1955). Just watched Goodfellas for the 15+ time where it was part of the soundtrack – any song that sings “Ba-ba-do-do-do” in its second line first verse is current to today’s societal sophistication. I’m not being critical but I wonder if people will still be listening to Chicano Batman 40 years from now or if its lead singer Bardo will be performing solo at 72 like Paul McCartney…evoking high school memories.
