I can only imagine. Lots of really good artists signed on their Eighteenth Street Lounge Music label. I'm especially a huge fan of Federico Aubele.

My wife and I went to Louisville last week to see My Morning Jacket play in their hometown. That was our third MMJ show we've seen this year, but the Louisville show was one of the best concerts I've ever attended (and I've been to a lot).

It's great to see that a lot of people have similar tastes. So with that...

I'm a fan of The Black Keys, and I've been fortunate to see them at least 3 maybe 4 times. They're great live, and "Brothers" is indeed a great album. The album is a great mix of blues, rock, and old fashion R&B. It might be their best album yet.

Dear God 2.0 with Monsters of Folk
That's a good version of the original "Dear God 2.0" by Monsters of Folk, whose album I really, really like.

Not sure if anyone else on this board is into this stuff.
I'm not a big Stars fan. I was at one point, but after seeing in concert a few times and listening to their music more closely, I'm starting to lose interest. The music isn't bad, but they use the same formula over and over again. Their lyrics are also not great. In a lot of ways, Stars and Metric are similar. It's time for both of these bands to try something new.

If you like Tame Impala, check out Avi Buffalo for that "surfer-indie pop" sound.

Two other bands to consider are The Dum Dum Girls and Best Coast, which are best described as lo-fi, 60s pop. Good stuff.

The National is very good. I wasn't a big fan of their earlier stuff because their music was extremely brooding and overly melodic, but their last album is great.

I'm not too familiar with Tallest Man on Earth, though.

Arcade Fire always put on a good show. I've seen them twice this year (Ottawa and Montreal) and twice previously, and they have never disappointed.

I, too, saw Massive Attack and Thievery Corporation in Montreal with two friends and my wife. It was the opening show of their tour, but both bands were great.


Other musical suggestions for people:

- Demander. A Brooklyn-based trio that plays garage rock. Very similar to Sleater Kinney.

- Throw Me the Statue - If you like Yo La Tengo, you'll like these guys.

- Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes - Folk, country, rock all mixed together to form a great, great sound.

- Maximum Balloon - Debut album by TV on the Radio's David Andrew Sitek is very good. It's almost like listening to part two of "Dear, Science".

- Erland and the Carnival - Another folky album from this band from Manchester I think (somewhere in England anyway). I like them way more than Mumford and Sons, who have received some airplay on US and Canadian mainstream radio.

- Xavier Rudd - One of my favourite musicians. He was once a one-man band from Australia, who played the didgeridoo, stomp balance, various guitars, etc. He now plays with a South African band (well two guys - a bass player and a drummer), and the three perform a fantastic live show.

Check out these tracks. He really has mad skills for a white boy from Alabama.





Also, a few bars from the 'Hometown Hero (remix)':

"Alabama homie, I wear it like a hat
I'm a small town boy, I'm so proud of that
Some people leave it, they fall til they fall flat
I just wanna bring it home, and give it all back
Cause given all that, what's been given to me
A successful rapper, huh?, I might as well hit the lottery
So instead of becoming a diamond-wearing novelty
I rock beads and buy my mama some property"


Pretty impressive imo. He was also on The Jason Ellis Show and is a very humble dude.

I listen to a lot of progressive, post-rock. Been listening to a band called animals as leaders a lot lately.



and for the hip hop lovers some stuff from MF Doom one of my favorite MC/producers

On another note, I can't remember if I've brought this up over in the hip hop thread, but have you checked out ESQ & Chikaramanga's album, The Succession yet? If not, you should.

Yea I think you posted it in the HHT before cause that beat is very familiar. Or I've heard it before, or that beat is sampled. But that is a hype beat! I'm really diggin it. Solid flow too. How's the rest of the album?

I get what you're saying about Stars, The Five Ghosts isn't really a great album, and just kind of feels like a less-interesting version of their past efforts. I just thought if anyone on here was going to have similar music interests as me, Stars would be a good band to bring up. That and I saw them the other night, and it was one of the better shows I've seen in a long time. I seriously didn't expect them to be so good.

I already know of all three (Avi Buffalo, The Dum Dum Girls and Best Coast). I haven't really listened to Avi Buffalo that much, but I like what I've heard. I don't really love that 60's Lo-fi sound, but I do really like Best Coast's Crazy For You.

I love the National, High Violet is seriously too good, maybe my favourite album of the year, next to The Tallest Man on Earth's The Wild Hunt. I would really suggest checking that LP out if you have any interest in folk music at all.

The rest of the album is pretty good.


Here are two more tacks from the album:

wasn't a dis... just saying he is different (and better) than everyone else out there... he brings up Kanye, Dre, Eminem, Lil Wayne... he has another song on the album where he actually calls out Jay-Z for doing a NY tribute song with Alicia Keys

CoRD, I just picked up this gem of an album on vinyl. I know if anyone can identify the sample, it's you.

Damn those new Ice Cube tracks are bumpin,

For me, I like alot of different music, All the way from Eazy E, The Game to System of a Down, Sublime, etc.

I love the System of a Down Toxicity album (old i know), but for the last while I've been into the Game's Brakelights Mixtape;
The Way The Game Goes


Stadium Music


Really love the whole Mixtape, not a big fan of the mainstream stuff (Drake, etc.)

Necro, Die Antwood, Royce Da 5'9 also among my favs.
Enter The Ninja


Beautiful Music for you to die to

Ho - ly - ****! What a track! Gave me goosebumps. And the sample has to be '3030' if I'm not mistaken. Brilliant song man. Great find.

Edit: noticed ppl in the YT comments said it was Deltron... no I did not look.

Yeah, I had been looking for this album for quite some time but didn't realize the Deltron 3030 sample came from this. Soon as I heard it I was like, "Holy ****, Deltron!" lol
