OT: What are you listening to?

Submitted by YakAttack on May 14th, 2018 at 10:29 PM

I haven't seen one of these in a while, so here we are. My favorite rapper, Royce Da 5'9'' has released two albums recently. Prhyme 2 and The Book of Ryan. I also like moody indy rock.

I always toggle between Boneyard, Hair, Lithium and Turbo. I used to like classic vinyl but they went a lot lighter with easy 70s music, I miss hearing the harder LZ songs on classic vinyl. Turbo has the new good rock from the 90s through 2010. Back when I use to listen to Octane but the new harder rock sucks. Sometimes I'll switch to liquid metal but some of those songs are just too growly but you may catch some Metallica or Slayer.

***Cigarettes After Sex sounds alot like Mazzy Star only not as good***

I added his station back to my Pandora shuffle. I had forgotten how much I like his music.

And like Kudasai above, I listen to Big Head Todd. That's probably a top 5 band for me.

I listen to lot of Langhorne Slim, Drive By Truckers, Jason Isbell, The Wood Brothers, Houndmouth, Pearl Jam, The Kinks, Tom Petty, Gaslight Anthem, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys. The list could probably go on for a while but that’s a pretty good representation of my rotation.

The R&R HoF induction ceremony was on HBO this weekend. I understand why Bon Jovi got the headliner treatment, but I think The Cars, The Moody Blues, and Dire Straits are equally deserving. And now that I am not 17 years old anymore, I'd rather listen to any of the three latter bands. I mean, how can you do better than Nights in White Satin?

Solid class. Moody blues are more than deserving to headline. Days of future passed is just an all time classic album that needs to be listened to on a record player. Favorite song of theirs, Question.

would be my favorite MB song. I remember first hearing it on CKLW 800 AM rock station back when I was 7, probably came out in '69 or '70? I remember hearing the old LZ songs on CKLW, use to be the top rock station before they changed formats in '74. Then WRIF became my favorite rock station. I wonder if Arthur P is still on the air?

Whitey Morgan and the 78’s; some good Flint boys. I don’t like the majority of new country music, but these guys don’t play that pop country bs. Give em a look if you’re into that 70’s outlaw country sound.

I’ve been listening to a lot of the Jocko Podcast as well as The Joe Rogan Experience. As an avid outdoorsman I’ll listen to the MeatEater podcast with Steven Rinella too.

I will wait for GVF to develop their own sound before I like them. They sound like a Zep cover band, which I know is not an original knock on them. I think when they mature a bit they will find it.
