And that's a creepy video.
I guess this is as good a place as any to post this. I was hoping someone might consider using this in a hype video for the football team this year.
I've been following the Dirty Heads for over 5 years. They have a pretty diverse sound that ranges from reggae to hip hop to slow acoustic jams. Some songs have NSFW language while others are more like radio pop.
This is the title track off their new album which was just released a few weeks ago. I think there is a lot of imagery in the lyrics that could be used for our football team.
For those that listen to 89X, their song "My Sweet Summer" is played about 83 times a day.
Yeah they are really trying to force that as a summer hit song. It's not even in my top 5 favorite songs on the album unfortunately.
so you don't currently work for her, but this will be used as a part of your resume/portfolio.
When you've joined the Medicare Generation, resumes and portfolios won't be an important consideration for you.
You claim to have eclectic musical taste, but when it comes to sports you're as narrow-minded as they come.
Not that interesting
I'm so glad you said tupac is the greatest rapper ever and not the greatest lyricist who ever rapped...
I like boff o dem
Above & Beyond blew me away at EDC this year
Who else had a song tagged by Pac and biggy?
Pac and biggy autocorrects to Pat and boggy, which falls into the Irish genre you mentioned
G funk had some definite classics and Pac is one of the greatest. Above the Law's Black Mafia Life and Uncle Sam's curse are soo damn funky. Dj Quik, SCC, Dre and Snoop, Warren G, Dangerous crew, were all dope. Pac was one of the greats, and his first few albums, Strictly for my N*****, 2pacolypse and Me against the world are incredible. I liked All eyes on me, but half of that album was garbage, the other half classic. How can you diss the east coast though? Give me Gangstarr, Wu-Tang, Rakim, Krs and Tribe any day of the week. Even down south used to be dope as hell. 8ball and MJG, Scarface, Big Mike, UGK. Every coast back in the early 90's was legit in my book
Wants to get funked up!
Sam Hunt was the QB at Middle Tenn ST & UAB. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA_e2OK9Nf8
I prefer this one.
Too many screaming women! I like rock music from '00s and before but in the past two to three years it has gotten worse. A few good bands are out there like five finger death punch but a bunch of junk is out there now!
I'll put Lzzy Hale against any current rock front man though
If you like country I suggest Brantley Gilbert's latest album Just As I Am. I've gotten into country lately as a change of pace and have really enjoyed it.
Try Jamey Johnson for a more authentic country sound and Sturgill Simpson is a new guy getting some attention after a couple really good albums. Country radio has changed alot as the majority of it is pretty much pop now.
I like Brantley's style because it's more rock than anything else. I'm not huge in the traditional stuff. There definitely is a huge variety of country sounds.
Sturgill Simpson is a badass.
I love when these threads come along... I'll recommend almost anything except country.
Alternative/Indie Rock: Spoon (new album dropping the fifth of Aug.), Cold War Kids, The Shins, Vampire Weekend, St. Lucia, Future Islands (more of a synth sound), Phoenix, Portugal. the Man, MGMT (trippy), Arctic Monkeys, Magic Man, Foster the People, Broken Bells, Bon Iver, Avett Brothers (folk/bluegrass rock sound), Bad Suns, Franz Ferdinand, and The Black Keys
In terms of synth rock: Chvrches, Broods, Purity Ring, John Maus, Rudimental, and the Naked and Famous
I saw the listing for hip-hop, so hopefully that includes rap... Not a huge rap guy, but here are the guys that I listen to: Danny Brown, Childish Gambino, Earl Sweatshirt, A$AP Ferg, and Kendrick Lamar.
One of the advantages of having been born when Harry Truman was President of the United States is that I've enjoyed listening to the evolution of popular music and getting introduced to music from all over the world.
While I'm no fan of country, rap or opera, and the only classical album I've ever bought was one that had a recording of the 1812 Overture, I'll give almost any kind of music a try.
Agreed on St. Lucia, they're an incredible band based in NYC. Kind of a mix of m83 & Passion Pit. Just saw them a few weeks ago in Michigan and they put on a hell of a performance too.
Their entire When The Night album is fantastic.
Danny Brown's alright... he's odd-looking, but he spits okay... earl sweatshirt's pretty nice lately, especially now that his voice has bassed-down a bit... I can't do anything with Kendrick Lamar, though... I'm trying to figure out what the hype is about... perhaps I'm too old to understand why his skills are seen as superior to and more marketable than somebody like pharoahe monch...
If you're into folk/indie music, everybody should check out the new album from Australian duo, Angus & Julia Stone.
New album is produced by Rick Rubin and comes out August 1st (digital) or August 5th (physical).
Note: I can't make the same disclaimer OP did, but I'm confident in the quality of this record. It's one of my favorite albums of 2014 so far...
Ultraviolet Hippopotamus (from Grand Rapids), Widespread Panic, Greensky Bluegrass, The Mantras....
Just saw the Mantras at the Tonic Room in Chicago on Saturday night. Pretty damn impressive show- they took maybe 90 seconds total across 3 "set breaks" but basically played non-stop for 2+ hours.
Is performing at Meijer Gardens tomorrow night, for all you "west siders"
Also for the Westsiders: if you're into folk, go see The Crane Wives at Founders on Saturday
Has nice tits
Nothing More. Play on repeat until you or your machine breaks, whichever comes first
That hype video was the start of hype videos for me...still watch it and "2010 michigan football pump up" before the season and games...still gets me, everytime
It's probably not quite hype video worthy, but I have been rediscovering my rather impressive collection of Tangerine Dream albums lately, as well as Yellow Magic Orchestra. Definitely dated stuff by today's techno / progressive rock standards, but these two groups were innovators back in the day. I actually had Tangerine Dream's 1981 album "Exit" playing a little bit ago...
For hype video music I've suggested a song by Steve Wynn, a founding member of the Los Angeles based 80s band The Dream Syndicate, from his album Static Transmission with The Miracle 3, Amphetamine.
There's a good version of Amphetamine on YouTube from a live set played at SXSW in 2011.
If hip hop has gotten bland to you, a fresh voice that most people have never heard is homeboy sandman... no two songs he's made sound the same and he's quite the clever linguist... and you could always try Aesop rock (not a$ap fucking rocky), who's not new by any means, but is also lesser known commodity...
I got turned on to Homeboy Sandman through his collaboration with Kalae All Day (now Kalae Nouveau) on this song:
2014 albums I've bought:
1. Beck - Morning Phase
2. Black Keys - Turn Blue
3. Jack White - Lazaretto
Beck's and Jack White's are amazing. Black Keys' is different from their norm...
I saw Jenny Lewis's show recently. It was swell.
Good little mashup that will stick with you. https://soundcloud.com/djearworm/dj-earworm-hands-only-cpr-mashup
The latest Old 97's, anything by The Bottle Rockets, Neil Young International Harvesters, anything by Alejandro Escovedo and the first Stone Roses
Only Built For Cuban Links. Best album ever put out by the Wu-Tang Clan.
the purple tape...
Yep. You just press play and sit back and listen. It almost plays out like a movie in your mind. To this day, whenever it rains Rainy Dayz gets stuck in my head.
