Music Help Needed
« on: February 14, 2010, 01:33:27 am »
i recently suffered a virus that made me reformat my hard drive. now i have the tedious
task of rebuilding my music library.

I want to build it in a new direction from what i had, and i'd like recommendations.

My only criterion is that it be something i haven't heard before.

(my tastes are diverse, but my exposure is fairly limited, so it shouldn't be too hard for some
of you)

Ya' stupid Yank.

Wolf Parade.  They have two albums, the first is Apologies to the Queen Mary and is fantastic.  The second is At Mount Zoomer and is only slightly less so.

EoC, you are the bane of my existence.

EoC doesn't make creepy.

EoC makes creepy worse.

Fo' realz? That sounds like it's just too much awesome for one track! I have to check this out.

On topic: I've been switching up my musical tastes these days, so here's some stuff I've been listening to lately that's a bit more "progressive," I guess.

Chrome, The Melvins, Jesus Lizard, The Locust, Nick Cave.

And if you like a post classic punk-rock kind of sound, check out any of Greg Lowery's bands. It's not mind blowing music but it's good clean fun.
