I've been listening to a ton of Hank III, oh and the Nick 13 (tiger army) solo album has been on regular rotation.

Also have been revisiting some of the old punk rock and hardcore I listened to as a teen, for example the escaped, a band in Portland that was pretty big in the early 2000's.

The Sturgill Simpson record from this year is good. What else from this year? Lavender Country reissue is worth hearing. All country songs about bein' gay. Do you want stuff not from this year too?

I been listening to DeepChord, Adult Jazz, The Feelies, and Mission of Burma.

Listened to Adult Jazz earlier, dunno how I feel, it's kinda cool and slick and interesting but kinda self-indulgent too, or at least I was bored a few times

Gf got me You're Dead! on vinyl, it's a beauty

The self-indulgent thing is interesting to me because i hear that, but it also seems like a calculated move. There's something of a self-consciousness hanging over the album.

Thanks.

heard of some of those but never gave them a proper listen with a few exceptions (I've always respected and on rare occasions listened to Kris Kirstofferson, for example). My opinion towards country was always 'I like the genres it draws from and there's probably good stuff out there' but what I've had forced down my throat my whole life was the bad stuff that actually isn't country.

These should be good listens. I'd love to see the genre for what it really is.

Thanks to you too uhh me; brad's was newest so that's what I read first wasn't overlooking you promise.

A lot of Lifter Puller and the Hold Steady lately. I've been in love with Craig Finn's narratives for a long time, but only recently have I been obsessed with them, especially the ones in LP lyrics.

This is one of my favorite songs right now i think some of you guys would like it if you haven't given gladys much of a listen. the "you beg her to love you, but me you dont ask" moment is gold. My housemate was listening to the bruno mars song when i was your man and it reminded me of this tune a bit so i had to show it to her


Been listening to a lot of Stephen Steinbrink and Emperor X lately. Emperor X crashed at my house last year and came on my radio show and stuff so I went up to see him in DC a couple weeks ago. Such a great show. He's a brilliant and friendly guy too. Probably one of the most interesting and important-feeling artists I've come across these past couple years. Western Teleport is a fantastic album and a great place to start if you're interested in him at all. He's got this spazzy brilliance in his songs, sort of hits technological/geopolitical themes and intense intimacy at the same time. It carries a lot of emotional weight for me anyway.

This is a great album from Stephen Steinbrink, it's called arranged waves. I really like the production on it. Gets the songs across nicely. I got it with an iTunes gift card ( ) and the itunes bonus track "try to believe" is actually great too.
http://stephensteinbrink.bandcamp.c.../arranged-waves

Here is a video i just uploaded from the D.C. show. I'll put some other Emperor X vids in spoilers if anyone's interested.

I'm probably one of the most diverse music fans there is. I can find stuff to enjoy from every genre of music except "Rap", which I absolutely detest. I do find myself listening to a lot of instrumentals lately. I'm a guitarist so I'm big on guitar instrumentals.

Check out my favorite guitarist.





If I could I'd join his road crew just so I could listen to him a lot even though I am an old white-haired man.

Update: Jesus! I was listening to the videos I posted and "Over the Rainbow" made me cry again.

your second statement renders your first statement (which is arbitrary and pretentious) false

No it doesn't. I have no idea how many different genres there are but there are a lot of them. One genre out of however many is a pretty small percentage. You are obviously a fan of "Rap" and you're holding my tastes against me. I would never hold it against you that you like "Rap". We are all entitled to our own opinion.
