Stax 50th Anniversary compilation. Memphis soul, good stuff.

Les Paul and Mary Ford: The Best of the Capitol Masters.

Also pulled out my old Ramones albums since I'm in my first year of guitar and that stuff is pretty easy to play by ear.

Aw, Gig, you're such a girlie girl…

Continuing my not-even-close-to-shoegaze mood:

Modern Industry by Fishbone and One Step Beyond by Madness never fail to pick me up.

Just discovered the "additional content for registered users" page at The Witcher site, and I'm listening to the four MP3's they've got available. This is my fave ( off youtube):

Rootwater - "Born again"-
The other three:
Beltaine - "Bring to the Boil"-quite the medieval sound
Skowyt - "Running away"-sounds like an american band here? good cut
Lal - "They want to Suck" and they do—give it a nine on the creepiness scale.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.

How about some upbeat dreampop with some tasty vocal harmonies?

Well, here are some songs and albums that I've been listening to recently:

Samamidon has a very beautiful folk song on his MySpace-page. It is called "Tribulation". And I recommend it deeply.

Then there's the great pop song by Feist called "1234". It's quite catchy.

Albumwise I've been listening a lot to Beiruts recent album "The Flying Club Cup". "A Sunday Smile" is perhaps the best song off the album even though the whole album is fantastic.
They've created videos to all the songs from the album, which can be seen here. Try picture #1.

Have I forgotten something? No, I guess that's that.

Yes, my thoughts exactly on Lal! I also didn't like Skowyt because it's not my type of music. Rootwater on the other hand rocks! And the Beltaine bit is also very cool.

Not quite sure what I'd call this. Catchy, certainly…

Noticed that Ether Aura put up some Christmas tune-age and couldn't resist sharing:

Couldn't quite get my ears around the vocals, Jabber. Could have been a mood problem, though.

Goth for me today:
"How It Came to Be This Way" and "A Waiting Time" by Autumn
(it's sort of a mandatory one-two punch off the Hating Tree cd…track one sets the table and track two snarls right thru ya in the pre-chorus)

Hmm.. the music reminds me of a couple of forays into the Goth world that The Cure did, which is a good thing, but I just couldn't get into the vocals. I'm like Sammy - When it comes to female vocals I listen for ones that could summon an angel and a devil all at the same time… This to me wasn't feminine enough.

Yeah, Julie's got a very strong, operatic voice. Not much silk to go with the steel. Can't do linkies from work, but you might take a spin with "Cold Sea" by Autumn's Grey Solace. Pretty sure it's on their Myspace page.

Autumn's Grey Solace linkie
(it should be noted that "Cold Sea" isn't really typical of the band, which is pretty obvious if you try any of other tracks)

Silver Screen for me today. He's only got one track from the cd up and unfortunately I'd say there are 2 or 3 that should have been picked over "Something to Prove", but I guess ya get what ya get.
