thought i'd post something non photography related

last week i saw beck in st. paul for his tour of his new[er] album, modern guilt. if you've ever listened to beck and liked him, this album rocks. took awhile to grow on me but i love it now.


feel free to suggest anything you'd think anybody would enjoy listening too. i'm sure there's a very, very wide range of music being listened to throughout the dpg and everybody loves finding good new music.

I recently downloaded Murs on DubSwede's suggestion.
I highly recommend these:

Murs - Murray's Revenge
Murs - Murs for President

Blackstar - Blackstar

The Roots - Tipping Point

I am on a hip hop kick right now

I'm eagerly awaiting the day that encounter a kareokee DJ who has this song in his line up. One of my all time favs.

People should check out Tegan and Sara. They're playing this weekend in the cities, some top notch Canadians. Also, Flight of the Conchords are funny enough to be mentioned 3 times.

Kip, Nick Cave makes me think of Volkswagens. He sold one of his songs to them on the early 2k's

Well, I don't have much to offer, since I assume that everyone here already listens to Brian Eno, The Velvet Underground, The Stooges and David Bowie.

For that matter, I suppose everyone has a good Elvis Costello collection and at least a working knowledge of the Pixies. Right?

I've been in a bit of a musical lull lately, so I've been listening to music that makes me sentimental. You know, Radiohead, The Shins, Neutral Milk Hotel, Wilco... Belle & Sebastian...

Don't forget Beethoven's 9th symphony. The entire thing, not just "Ode to Joy" which is the 4th movement -- the second movement is da bomb.

Murs' End of the Beginning is the best if you ask me.

I too really liked The Roots' Rising Down. really hard and much grittier than their usual stuff.

I'm a really big Radiohead fan as well; thought In Dreams was great after a few listens. Also Thom Yorke's solo album had some gems on it.

The first few Queens of the Stoneage albums are fantastic if you're in that kind of mood sometimes.

Wilco is awesome along with Jeff Tweedy's solo tour on CD. fantastic rock/alt-country folky business. i hate all the genre label crap but there's no other way to describe it.

Find deep tracks (read: songs you don't already know) by both Bruce Springsteen and Gordon Lightfoot and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Two of the best, in my opinion.

Sigur Rus. Amazing ambient kinda stuff. Check out anything from the '()' album. It's sung in iceladic giberish, and is meant for you to interpret as you hear it.

i'll recommend the "Garden State" movie soundtrack. An awesome arrangement of music. Currently my favorite cd.

Six Pence Non the Richer- but ONLY the "Beautiful Mess" cd. extremely different sounding from their more current pop crap.

Nickle Creek


last night i was in the store holding a "flight of conchords" cd, feeling like i knew who they were and that i might like their music. but i didn't buy it.

Pink Floyd, especially the "less heard of" albums, Meddle and Obscured By Clouds are 2 favs. Relics is a nice "Greatest Hits".

Atom Heart Mother is by far the strangest, but still awesome.

"Atom Heart Mother is by far the strangest"

But "Summer '68" is sooo worth it.

Also, are you forgetting Ummagumma? Can anyone make sense of "Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Groovin' WIth A Pict"?

Ooh, big fan of Meddle and other non-popular Pink Floyd. have that on vinyl.

Been listening to some electronic/sorta dj stuff lately.

Diplo or (Diplotocus) is pretty cool.

Saint Germain is too. both great ambient hip hoppy sorta electronic.

Portishead seems to find it's way into my ear pretty often. If you like Massive Attack at all Portishead is worth a listen.

I agree with listening to other, non-pop Gordon Lightfoot. along with Tom Waits (although not at all similar), there are so many great songs by these guys that weren't popular.

Another question arises: How many of you still listen to vinyl?

I really want to find some Floyd, but I think that would lead to others, and I dont have the room/money for another hobby right now.....

Anybody else for "At The Drive-In"?

I still listen and buy vinyl... I have over 600 records at home.. I got my brothers collection with all the Stones, Zeppelin, and Floyd.

Ya the new Portishead is great.

"Another question arises: How many of you still listen to vinyl?"

Myself, I have over 400 LPs :-). Not very much new vinyl, though, because new records usually cost a premium. I try to catch old records at estate sales; I'm mostly enhancing my Blues and Jazz collections these days.

A music thread? I'm in.

Lately, i've been on a pandora kick, listening to 'Aesop Rock Radio'.

If you don't know what pandora is, www.pandora.com
You type in an artist, and it will play similar music, and you can customize the station by adding artists, say which songs you like and don't like... Very very useful for finding new artists.

I've also been listening to a lot of ambient, experimental stuff such as Battles and Boards Of Canada. Amazing stuff.

Nate, At The Drive-In is one of my favorite Texan prog-rock (ish) bands. I only own Relationship of Command and the Vaya EP, but they're both awesome.

We should take notes from it. I find that a much more ethical way to provide educational funds then making kids deal with IEDs.

Nature of the beast, and I think a thread about music is more prone to it then others. Once you cutt of the segment of songs that are about breakups & relationships, a lot of what is left is often socially & politically motived.

Mentioning a song, and not being able to comment about what the artist is saying, but only the time signature & key to me is odd. Its like looking at Nachtwey's Rwanda series, and only being able to comment on his lens sharpness & bokeh.

But, I'll digress and stand down. I think prostitution is better then bombs. Thank you.

Thanks, I appreciate it. I have no problem with discourse in almost any vein, but I find that online it devolves into bitter diatribes more quickly, and keeping DPG a friendly place is a (not entirely unselfish) goal of mine.

"the shins will change your life"

If you dig The Shins, you should probably take a listen to Neutral Milk Hotel. In fact, everyone should just listen to Neutral Milk Hotel in general. The record to get is "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea".

Cloud Cult (Indie from the Cities, amazing stuff!)
The Faint (Electronica infused Punk from Nebraska)
Mewithoutyou (Spoken Vocal masters, Very melodic instrumentation)
Morphine (Three piece jazz group (90's) involving a slide bass, a tenor sax, a drum set, and drugs)
Portugal the Man (Amazing mix of pop, electronica, and indie)
Ratatat (Mostly instrumental, epic catchy beats)
The Sounds Of Animals Fighting (A supergroup formed, and this group is so technically sound. Amazing riffs, breaks, and the vox)
The Whore Moans (From the Seattle area. They played a show here two years ago, and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Awesome grunge post punk style)
