we_built_a_tree: You might enjoy Pere Ubu and Magazine. Probably worth investigating post-punk if you haven't already.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

I really like the collection, I think you are missing the Brian Jonestown. Methadrone, Take It From The Man, and Give It Back should be on there
#124
This is the rec thread right?

Anything you can suggest that's African-themed, somewhat tribal, yet possibly optimistic sounding?
Cheers.
#125
The other two Velvets albums, Lust for Life, Wilco's Being There, and Room on Fire all deserve to be on there

Anything anyone can suggest that sounds alternative like from the 90's, but are a newish band would be awesome. I'm curious to what's out there for alternative music nowadays.

On The Beach is his best

uh huh.

but yeah, the ones that we have do seem a bit odd at first glance. i think that in the context of alternative and indie music, they might make the most sense.

while on album swapping, would anyone else approve of switching Chairs Missing in instead of Pink Flag?
#134
Maybe I'm just missing something...neither Cursive- The Ugly Organ or Domestica are not on the list. Not saying both are necessary but I mean, I don;t know I consider The Ugly Organ an a GRADE A classic.

Nah. Pink Flag is better

In addition to though, as said above, would be preferable
#136
Could someone please suggest me some good post-hardcore similar to Aficionado and La Dispute and some bands that are similar to Dungen?
#137
I think Fleet Foxes' album should be added to 2008. Also, The Velvet Underground's self-titled is probably their most "indie"album. .......

Not sure if this is the right thread to post in or not but I'm looking for some band recommendations.

Currently I'm listening to MBV, Carissa's Weird, Built To Spill, Big Scary, Slowdive, Ride, Beat Happening, Pavement.

I know there is quite a mix of bands there but I'm not very well versed on Indie bands in recent times as I do listen to heavier music but am now starting to get back into some bands I used to listen to when I was younger.

Thanks for any replies and recommendations.

I think the Fleet Foxes' newest album is better and should be added ahead of the other one. And the Self-titled is my favorite VU album, but Nico is more essential and influencial.

Real Estate and Ringo Deathstarr. They both released albums this year and you should like them.

I'm a newbie and I might get beaten to death verbally here, but does an album like Arctic Monkey's Whatever... not fit on this list?

EDIT: Anyway, I just found this part of the forum ( ), and looking forward to checking off the albums I haven't already heard.

IDGAF what haterz say, Whatever People Say I Am is fan-flippin'-tastic. Not sure it should be on the list (not that I really care), but it is indeed good.
#146
Pretty much everything besides their early demos and debut blow imo. Whatever... used to be my jam tho.
#147
I **** with the monkeys. I like the direction they're going in too, at least it's more creative than how The Strokes went.
#148
Whatever People Say I Am... and Is This It are both among my fav albums ever, but my oh my how each of those bands went startlingly downhill.

With the Monkeys, though, I can see how lots of people would enjoy their last three albums. I totally get the appeal. The Strokes' last three albums are filled to the brim with uncreative banal garbage (not like I'm a shning example of creativity, but WHATEVER BRO); like, they're truly a chore to listen to. Room On Fire sucks but I can actually enjoy it sometimes I guess.
#149
Yeah man exactly what I'm saying. The Artic Monkeys sound like a different band these days.

You are a shining example of creativity Due, never say that.

Copied out of the talking heads thread cause it doesn't get much traffic:

What is the best Talking Heads album to start with? I'm looking to buy my first.
You should know that I can't stand any sort of processed or sequenced sounding drums, which Iv'e heard in songs on all there albums after the first three on you tube. I also will oddly enough get into weird music faster than poppy music and am looking for weirdness. I'm a big fan of psychedelia, for example.
I'm leaning towards fear of music, BTW.

You've probably already downloaded something but 'Remain in Light' is their best album.

There should at least be something by Beat Happening - either You Turn Me On or Jamboree.
