Recommended Posts

http://www.dublab.com/index.asp

 

'ere is al list for different moods

theres a radio station inside garageband.com (garageband funk) too, but its a bugger to find.

my faves are jazzmusique on flaresound and nova, dublab is wicked if u catch the right show, but can be a little abstact. they talk a lot on radioactive which is sometimes good.

I always love it when this thread pops back up. Right now I am listening to Soundgarden's classic, Badmotorfinger.

 

In heavy rotation these days is:

John Mayer

Dashboard Confessional (have been listening to for a year now, can't get over em)

Audioslave

Chevelle

Coldplay

Sage Francis

Counting Crows

James Taylor

Radiohead's new one - Hail to the Thief (thx Mr.S)

Long Since Forgotten

Dave Matthews Band

 

I just bought tickets to the John Mayer/Counting Crows and Beck/Dashboard shows back home this summer. Plus soon I'll grab tickets to Lollapalooza with Audioslave, A Perfect Circle, Incubus and more. On top of that Both James Taylor and Dave Matthews will be coming thru my town (along with many more I imagine). So when I say I miss concerts, this is what I am talking about.

 

BTW I love my iPod. I walk all over Tokyo rocking out to jams.

It changes every day, but today is;

 

Rockers Hi-Fi, Chris Fortier, Thunderball, Les Hommes, and Sonique (hitting delete as I go with the latter).

 

Dashboard Confessional are a bit hard to listen to in places...

I have listened to the Zwan CD a few times. I enjoy it but I am not blown away. Of course I wan't ever a huge Pumpkins fan either. But I recognize it has potential. I think I'll give it another listen soon.

Isn't Sam Roberts that totally bland, boring guitar picker? If he's who I think he is, I've heard far better buskers in just about any train station in the world.

i cant really pin down what sort of "style" sam roberts is.

 

they play a hybrid of folk and rock. i guess similar artists would be pete yorn, ryan adams (NOT brian mind you), and hawksley workman.

 

011 sam roberts hasnt been around very long, and his music isnt just him plucking a guitar. sam roberts (http://www.samrobertsband.com) is just the name of the lead singer of the band as a whole. its quite possible that you have heard their stuff and if thats your opinion thats cool.

currently switching between Groove Armada-Love Box and DJ ANGEL-Angle, a local Japanese Drum n Bass artist. Really good use of samples in his work.

I'm grooving to Groove Armada at the moment too, and loving the track 'Purple Haze'.

 

Anybody else know of Blue States? That's some nice melodies and atmosphere.
