For me, it's The Black Keys. I gotta rep these guys. They're a 2 piece band and play some absolutely rugged blues rock. Check them out.
it's a major award
The Victors by Michigan Marching Band. Some of you might have heard it before.
I was enjoying some of that a bit earlier myself.
Still can't hear 'em...
But the crowd "Hail" gives me goosebumps. Go Blue.
God, I already miss Michigan football.
Did you guys notice the number of MMB members wasn't mentioned this year? As in, "...presenting the 234-member Michigan Marching BAND...bannnnnnd take the field!" This year it was just, "...presenting the Michigan Marching BAND! Bandddddd take the field!"
Definitely not them. Angry rock! YEAH!
the Coffee House- acoustic stuff.
I like that channel a lot too.
The Bouncing Souls
Hilltop Hoods and Nine Inch Nails
Haven't been as sold on some of their others.
Lately I've been listening to Guided by Voices, Robyn Hitchcock, Slayer, the Fall, Jay Reatard and St. Vincent.
Jay Reatard RIP.
I thought you were messing with me until I googled it.
Well, that sucks.
Tony Lucca is in the player now.
Acoustics sound so good on Paradigm speakers =)
We Came As Romans
The Black Keys are awesome. First time I heard them was on NHL 08 i think "Just Got to Be" was on the soundtrack and it was awesome so i downloaded more of their stuff. Definitely one of my favorite bands. They recently just came out with a collaborative album with some rappers, most notably Mos Def, where they play the background music for the rap..its called Blakroc and its pretty interesting.
Other than that:
New Vampire Weekend (and old too i guess)
Explosions in the Sky
mostly the self titled album and both of the ...real boy albums.
(ok, not really lately. More like for the last 3-4 years)
No. I desperately wanted to, though.
Also, I didn't mention it above, but I've also been listening to a lot of Jonathan Coulton lately, because he's awesome.
Band of Horses
Panic at the Disco- Pretty Odd Album, took me a while to get into it, it reminds me of Srgt. Pepper. Not saying they are close to the Beatles.
& The Shins
which Panic! album? I find "Pretty. Odd." (their most recent album) to be much different and much better than their first album. I haven't been able to get enough of that album for the past year or so now.
Pretty. Odd is the album I'm talking about.
Whole lotta GangStarr and Jimi Hendrix.
Mine has to be "Work".
I stopped discussing this kind of thing when a kid tried to choke me while I was in my bunk at a summer camp for telling him he should listen to more oldies. The conversation went like this (not exaggerated whatsoever):
"You haven't lived until you've listened to oldies!"
*While trying to choke me* "You don't know anything about my life! You don't know how many times I've tried to kill myself!"
That might do it for me, too. I'm not a fan of choking... most things.... But seriously, that's a messed up camp experience. Isn't camp supposed to be all about team building and fun?
It was an interesting week. The whole situation became incredibly hilarious after the fact, and it makes for a good story.
As far as the music goes, if pressed, I'd probably recommend the band "fun." right now. Fantastic music with more thoughtful lyrics than most. Not for everyone, but I like it.
I go for some Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Definitely my favorite band. I'm a fan of the Foo fighters, too. Kanye West is always good. Other than that, I throw in some rap and other classic rock songs from here or there. RHCP is where it's at, though. Can't go wrong there.
The Outlaws, Marshall Tucker, The Allman Brothers, and who else but, l-en-erd sk-yn-ryd. And listen to who will become the greatest guitarist of all time, Derek Trucks.
TOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!........and Vampire Weekend
A lot of Architecture in Helsinki lately for some reason.
Solid band. I get on kicks for them as well.
Explosions in the Sky
We Were Promised Jetpacks
Shout Out Louds
The Twilight Sad
Kings of Leon - Youth and Young Manhood and Aha Shake Heartbreak
For those wondering, yes it was necessary to single (double?) out those 2 Kings albums. I could be stranded on an island with only Aha Shake Heartbreak and be perfectly content with my situation.
Pandora stations around Steve Miller Band, RHCP, Jay-Z. I also love 90s rock.
And say what you want, but I'm hooked on beyonce's "Sweet dreams" song, I have to hear it at least once... or maybe it's the video....
Yes, that just happened.
No, dude, that song is fantastic. The video doesn't hurt.
But with Alicia Keys after she sang "Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart" on SNL this past Saturday. Dear heavens, it's not fair.
Alicia Keys in the "no one" video is absurd. I thought she also looked amazing in the live performance before one of the WS games in Yankee stadium.
Do these still exsist? Everytime I flip past "the MTV" it is always some gut wrenchingly distasteful "reality" show.
Shpongle - Never heard of them? Check out the Nothing Lasts album.
Rage Against the Machine
Buddha Bar Mix Series
During the holidays I couldn't get enough of the Sufjan Stevens Christmas album.
The only Christmas music I can ever listen to, but I look forward to Christmas every year just for a good reason to.
Zac Brown Band
I listen to virtually nothing but Muse
Why do I love Muse so much
I was going to say basically the same thing. Why as I write this post I'm listening to Citizen Erased. I'm really hoping this "school" stuff helps me pass the time until March 13 when they're at the Palace.
Michigan's spring break coincides with the East Coast swing of The Resistance Tour. I'm from DC; I was planning on following them from DC to Baltimore to Philly to Madison Square Garden from March 1-5. Then I realized that trip would cost like $6,000 so I settled on two tickets to the Patriot Center woo
We'll be back in school by the 13th...hmm...and it's a Saturday...
