What have you been listening to lately?

  1. For some reason I've really gotten into honky tonk sorta Texas country the last couple years. Started w/ Townes Van Zandt and now it's moved on to guys like Ryan Bingham, John Prine, Hayes Carll, Robert Earl Keen, Guy Clark... It's nuts, man. I've been a punk rock/metal guy my whole life and always hated (and I mean hated) country... Damn near as much as dance music, but not quite. Anyway, that's it. Totally getting into country now and it's weird. Good, but weird.

    Cool, bro! I don't much care for country music, but can totally dig branching out to "foreign" music. :bassist:

    Try The Derailers and Jason and the Scorchers.

    Maybe Hank Williams III or Deertick.

    I've been listening to Led Zeppelin lately. I found their 4 CD box set really cheap last week.

    Lately, I've been wanting to check out Yes. Any good places to start?

    I recently got into The Who. I have learned almost every song I can find by them. Extremely fun on The RIC.

    Yes Fragile. Learn to play south side of the sky. You'll be glad you did. Then try Long Distance.:D

    Fragile all the way. Close to the Edge if you have time. Awaken and Sound Chaser are great songs I like in relative isolation (I'm not as much a Yes fan as others).

    As for myself, I'm getting into Type O Negative again, along with more Fates Warning and some Dave Brubeck. Can't get enough of the drum solo on Take Five!
  16. I absolutely LOVE The Meantraitors' "Psychobilly Land" album, although the singer sounds like a cross between Peewee Herman and Spongebob.
  17. Something awful has happened recently, so I've been listening to a lot of Dead Meadow and early Pink Floyd for some mellow escapism. Particularly Dead Meadow's Feathers album.

    Scott Walker's new album Bish Bosch. Not exactly what you'd call easy listening, and I can quite see the point of those who deem it a pinnacle of artsy-fartsy pretentiousness. I still like it, because of 1) the free-ranging semantic and sonic imagination, 2) the subliminal humor, and 3) the recorded sound.

    Miles Davis - Kind of Blue (hat tip to TBers for suggesting this to other people curious about jazz)

    Trying to hear what the big deal "real jazz" is all about. So far I really like listening to it (love So What and All Blues) although I probably have no idea what's going on musically. "OK here's the deal, we start off with a catchy tune, then you, tenor sax guy, play a solo, then it's my turn, then the alto sax guy goes, and finally the cat playing the piano takes a shot." Seems as formulaic as your average rock song even if the music itself is way over my head right now.
