"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
OT: Friday POSBANG (what are you listening to?)
Our son was born this week;) Listening to a lot of Casper Babypants and waves crashing.
Hit up the caffeine early and often. You're going to need it!
slept in from day one. 'Course, she took long afternoon naps, but so do I. Downside was that I never saw a movie or went out evenings for several years after she was born, but. . .
Pierce the Veil - Collide With the Sky
Surprisingly complex and melodic screamo album. Well worth a listen.
From your listen thus far? I think Selfish Machines is very good and Bulletproof Love and Caraphernelia are excellent tracks from that album.
His final two albums - Figure 8 and From a Basement on a Hill.
Pixies - Dig For Fire
I've been on stand by at work since Saturday, just getting paid to hangout at home!
Band of Horses, The Decemberists, Spoon, The Bird and the Bee (her voice is fantastic), Motion City Soundtrack, and Motor City pop-punk band Search the City, among others
There's a guy outside my window playing the saxophone for tips and I have half a mind to go out there and punch him in the throat. He's not even that bad but after 60 minutes its downright annoying.
Billy Talent, Shinedown, and Cage the Elephant.
The Rolling Stones Exile on main street, re-release. My Morning Jacket (Does anyone have an opinion on the new Jim James album? Not really my style but not terrible), Frontier Ruckus, and recorded lectures covering various topics such as anesthesia, orthopedics, etc.
Animal Collect - Centipede Hz....currently in the middle of listening to all 3 of Arcade Fire albums. Probably going to move on to Foals - Holy Fire somethime since i cant get those songs out of my head.
Local Natives just came out with a new album and it's fantastic. I cannot stop playing it. Saw them at the blind pig a few years ago, and it was so good. They're skipping mi and my current city of stl this year but I'm going in Nashville.
Anyway, it's hard to explain them, but the new album is called Hummingbird. They're like indie rock with a lot of ambient harmonies. Someone described them as Wave, but I don't even think that's a real genre.
Yeah I'm with you here. I like it a lot more than Gorilla Manor. Saw them at Roo a couple of years ago and they killed it. About to see them again in about a month. Pretty pumped for it.
Flipping between 80's on 8, 90's on 9, The Blend, KISS FM, and The Highway. Every once in a while i check in on Blue Collar Radio for some comedy.
Is a great station!
It's my favorite station. One of the DJs is a UM grad too. My wife hates it. She likes KISS, but i can't stand Ryan Seacrest. He's such a tool bag.
if any of you old-timers remember that place--sh*t ages really well. And Donny Hathaway, soul singer who died too early. Also a Rodgriguez best of, some Wayne Shorter, a Neko Case best of that I compiled, and Iggy Pop's American Caeser (Ann Arbor Pioneer boy of just before my vintage who I used to sometimes see downtown). All these because amazon sent an email saying that I could access mp3s of CDs I had purchased in the past.
The new albums by Guttural Secrete and Defeated Sanity. Both albums are superb. \M/
Shoot, I could listen to Defeated Sanity all day. In fact, I probably will.
If you're a metalhead. Some screaming/singing. They released their EP The Call Out. They are A Day to Remember esque. Plus they are from south eastern michigan.
The music is easier to find and listen to on facebook. Boooo kenny chesney lol.
That's quite the band! Thanks for the heads-up!
Dissonance is your friend
Hopslam. Listening to Hopslam.
currently in my players:
Rotating in my car is: Chris Thile and Michael Daves, James McMurtry, Darrell Scott, and the Lone Bellow.
At home on the turntable: Don Williams, Waylon Jennings, and The Punch Brothers...
Americana/Country is my sanctuary.
I love James McMurtry. "Choctaw Bingo" should be the national anthem.
I've been listening to Billy Joe Shaver's Salt of the Earth and Chris Smither's Hundred Dollar Valentine a ton lately.
Also the Flaming Lips At War With The Mystics, which has nothing to do with country blues.
Choctaw Bingo is a great tune....I love his "Childish Things" album, the songs "Holiday", "Six Year Drought", "Memorial Day", "Pocatello", "Elephant" and "Charlemange's Hometown" are song writing masterpieces.
Still haven't made it to Billy Joe Shaver yet, I know my dad was a fan, so I'm sure I would love him.
Just got done listening to some Gangstarr- daily operation and Raekwon's Only Built for Cuban Linx. Now I have Killer mIke's RAP music album on, and then going to listen to my advance copy of Czarface(inspectah deck and esoteric).
Pandora has been coming up with some good ones lately...
The Band: Issues
King of Amarillo
Was a big fan of the band Woe is Me, and was chapped when they broke up - but the lead singer is now the lead for the band Issues...and it's really good!
Trombone Shorty and The Decemberists.
...and the "Autopsy of Detroit NPR interview mentioned above.
Found some unreleased Imagine Dragon songs and have been checking those out lately. Danzig - Mother, When in Rome - The Promise (think Napolean Dynamite), Led Zeppelin - Bron-Y-Aur Stomp, Hot Chocolate - Everyone's a Winner, Unknown Mortal Orchestra - So Good at Being in Trouble, and a new Theophilus track featuring Rihanna - Jump.
I'm listening to the Deadpod.
I have Pandora on Eminem.
Listening to some beats by Apollo Brown. Megaphone has to have the hardest drums ever.
Apollo Brown is dope. I loved The Left-Gas Mask. Great album. If you like hard beats and dope raps, check out the Czarface album. It is so sick.
Some Jack White before a night out on Ann Arbor
Dropkick Murphys: Signed and Sealed in Blood
At Work-Robert Randolph & the Family Band. He plays a 16 string pedal steel guitar and rocks out.
They have rock/funk/soul feel.
They have opened up for Santana, Eric Clapton, and The Dave Matthews Band.
Now at home-Ol' Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra.
You can't go wrong with Frank Zappa.
Survival of the Fittest, because it's just been one of those weeks.
