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.
Jolie Holland, Hazmat Modine, and a little Trombone Shorty.
Jollie Holland is amazing.
New artist by the name Darkside just put out a great album.
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.
Alt-J, The Naked & Famous, The XX, Stars, Bloc Party, Austra, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Haim, Bastille, fitz and the tantrums, arcade fire.
The Captain and Tenille. Everything old is newish again...
Chicano Batman (out of LA), Sword (out of Austin), Town & Country (out of Chicago I believe) and Rudresh Mahanthappa (out of NYC). Also been digging more mainstream Miguel, Drake et al...
Of course some Lou Reed in last 24 hrs!
There is no there - the Books
Cheyenne Marie Mize
Rage Against the Machine
My Morning Jacket (MMJ)—Circuital
New Pearl Jam album and a generous helping of Neil Young.
At work: Radiohead, Tom Yorke's side projects, Thievery Corporation, RJD2, Bonobo, Caribou
to name just a few!
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.
usually turn on kcrw (either streaming or their daily spotify list) and just listen...
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!
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
Continued; play any songs, he just jams on his guitar for hours straight. I see no problem...
Nice pic Nam, and he as at the swapmeet.......Was at a wedding this weekend and Sleepy Labeef played and bought two albums so far.....Nils Frahm....Worakls - Live act 2013 is on serious repeat....had dinner with the wife and kids to Jim Morrison's American Prayer the extended addition which rolled into Frank Zappa's - Gumbo Variations and Jimi Hendrix's Villanova Junction (the 30 minute version) last Thursday ....last night some good old cheesy Italian techno while drinking with the wife: Gigi D'Agostino - Blah Blah Blah
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!
The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures, Beastie Boys, Gorillaz.
And I throw in some classical music sometimes too.

Wish all the Wars Were Over
Every Day is Three
(unfortunately the best stuff isn't on the web, the albums are worth checking out)
The Bombay Royale
NehruvianDOOM (new MF DOOM collaboration)
Alexander Walter - The Boiler Room stuff is always great - good set by Ben Klock...if you like that and want more minimal and pounding check out Jon Asher mixes
this guy seems to be becoming more popular every month - Vintage Culture
Temples, thanks, it's a nice find.
Listening to lots of Jethro Tull this past week...
Jethro Tull - bad ass flute players - nice jla-x!
since Mr. Walter got me thinking after the Ben Klock set....anything from
Jethro Tull runs into Nehruvian Doom at some acid techno club where Temples and Kompakt have a hallucinogenic DJ battle
Looks like my answer from last October is still accurate today. Still rocking the Neil Young.
not sure why, but as i have aged i like Neil young more and more...
also that Zakk Wylde is pretty good GUITAR player! thanks for the h/t
The longer you live and work hard the more you feel the Neil Young... love this track Neil Young and Crazy Horse - Grandpa's Interview: http://youtu.be/ovZIFtXixcQ
@sakshi definitely a fan of Chicano Batman!
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.
dont judge me bur new beyonces album is really good :) for the rnb fans
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!
this AM listening to Tycho - Dazed Mix
I rocked STP's debut album (1992's CORE) this morning on my walk to the office.
Giacinto Scelsi: Complete Works for Double Bass (Robert Black)
still rocking in a free world
Neil Young and Crazy Horses' Greendale - Grandpa's Interview
The noise was unfamiliar...A walkie talkie squealedGenerators were runnin'Vans parked in the fieldTv crews and camerasThey wanted to interview grandpa on the porchThey came through the gate and up on the lawnKnockin' down edith's tiki torchGrandpa saw them thereLooking through the venetian blind"those people don't have any respectSo they won't get any of mineI ain't gonna talk about jed...I don't watch channel 2 or 6 or 9I don't have time to talk that fastAnd it ain't my crimeIt ain't an honour to be on tvAnd it ain't a duty eitherThe only good thing about tvIs shows like 'leave it to beaver'Shows with love and affectionLike mama used to sayA little mayberry livin'Can go a long way"
(only 35 and feel this way already...)
This is the only man that matters in Dance Music Right Now
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.
Been rocking some Bad Brains this past week...
cant forget about this.
That One Guy.
Welcome Home by Radical Face is my new favorite song.
Blue Rodeo Five days in May
