Default Music Thread

VFK & I enjoy discussing music so I thought I'd start a thread to discuss whatever music interests may be out there.

Some recent reviews:

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Stadium Arcadium is decent. There are some fabulous songs on it but a double disc of 28 similarly sounding tunes is overkill. The sum of the parts is greater than the whole.

Pearl Jam - Pretty good - their best stuff in years but to me - that's not saying much

Gnarls Barkley - great, fun CD. I call it the Gorillaz meet Outkast

not really.

i don't dislike her but i'm not going out of my way to listen to her. I prefer my female singers with less "soul".

dickau - are you on favorite10 yet?

Vin - as for your female singers - did you see Tift Merritt has an album coming in June?

oh really? I'm definitely on that.

Tift Merritt is really underrated. I dig her stuff a lot.

So much good stuff coming out right around now:

The National - High Violet (just another completely awesome album from these guys)
LCD Soundsystem - This is Happening - has some great, great tunes on it that rank up there with his/their other efforts
Band of Horses - Infinite Arms - this is really good as well. It may beat out Cease to Begin although it doesn't top Everything All the Time
Jonsi - Go - if you liked the last Sigur Ros album, this one won't disappoint.

I feel old,I haven't got a clue what the hell you are talking about.I spent the winter getting reaquainted with my classic rock and blues albums,putting some on CD,but basicly building a library on the media player.I would say the artist I've been listening to the most is Roger Chapman,Roger Chapman and the Shortlist, In his band Family and another band of his ,Streetwalkers and a band he guest starred in ,Box Of Frogs .Box of Frogs was formed by some exYardbirds.Some cool tunes if you like funky blues and rock n roll.I just dig Chapmans raspy voice,it sounds like he chain smokes with whiskey shots between drags.Dug out some old Janis for the times I want to here a woman belt out the blues.

musicman - if you want to hear some modern day music that harks back to the era you are talking about, give Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings a listen. She has an incredible voice. It's more R&B than blues but she has a voice you can appreciate like Janis Joplin. Plus it will give you hipster cred!

I don't think they'll ever top Everything All the Time. The Funeral, Part One, Monsters, St Augustine, and my favorite: I go to the Barn. If you're a music fan, you must have Everything All The Time.

I think the lyrics on Infinite Arms is a little subpar but it's great to have the BoH sound with new stuff again. Highest in my rotation.

I like the High Violent album but I just don't dig the guy's voice.
