Got something in my eye.

Every time I hear this it gives me chills.  He goes from E2 to A4. That's an interval of 2 octaves and 5 semitones.

post #903 of 997

I'll see your 2,5 octaves and raise with this:

 

 

Gives me chills every time he goes from A major to A-WESOME.

Great voice! Got a touch of the younger Hetfield about it, only with a far bigger range. Like Hetfield mixed with Vedder and Cornell.

Between the Mellotron, Whetton's soulful vocals, and Fripp's mournful guitar, this song just makes me want to cry every single time.

Then it turns into four thousand different kinds of kickass.

And it still makes me want to cry at the end there.

God damn.

I was always a big fan of the MC5, but I never heard anything from the spinoff group Sonic's Rendezvous Band until recently . . .I've been listening to their song "Electrophonic Tonic" on a loop:

Have any of you heard of Jukebox the Ghost? They're a fantastic power pop band out of D.C. my girlfriend introduced me to. A brilliant blend of catchiness and real musicianship.

I'll post videos when I'm using a more amenable mechanism than my phone.

This is, as the kids say, everything

post #910 of 997

So Liam Gallagher's decided he should actually use his God-given vocal cords for a change, instead of doing whatever the fuck he did on the last Beady Eye album. And with a pretty great video to boot.

Digging the absolute shit out of this.

 

WARNING: Video is Pixelated NSFW. Song's great though.

Have never heard of this band, but have heard the music from time to time. Totally addicted to My Name is Human.

post #914 of 997

Because Spotify resolutely refuses to put the correct mix up under this name (they put the Vince Clarke remix as the "Think About the Future" one), I've been rinsing this on yatube

 

Loved it as a kid, still great now.

 

 

Turns out I don't listen to any new music anymore (unless it's EDM and even then I don't know who it's by or the track list)

post #915 of 997

Who needs new music anyway? This popped up in my shuffle last night and it's not leaving my head anytime soon:

I've been playing their 'Making Movies' album a lot lately.  Just some great stuff on there...it's a nearly perfect album.

post #917 of 997

It says a hell of a lot about Brothers In Arms that its weakest tracks are its megahit singles.

Speaking of Dire Straits: here's another tune that has become an earworm for me:

 

Mark's lyric delivery and phrasing is simply awesome on this song.

post #919 of 997
Putting brass and punk together can go really, really wrong, but ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT always got it really, really right.

I was never big on the Cali-punk thing that blew up in the wake of Nirvana's power chord revolution, but this was one band from that scene who blasted their way into my heart and have never left.

Undeniable You just broke me. I just got engaged two weeks ago, and this puts every single feeling I have into words. Simple, I know, but sweet Jesus did it just reach in and make me go all blubbery...

Hey Sean Blackwell, big congrats on making the big move man!

You sold me.  That intro gives me a Madonna Lucky Star vibe. 

post #923 of 997

Speaking of pop influenced by the past, I'm a big fan of the dance vibe of the new single off Lorde's new album: 

 

And while it takes a little bit to get going, Arcade Fire of all people wrote probably the best straight-up disco song since the whole of Random Access Memories: 



(got a major "If I Can't Have You" vibe off this one.)

Tigers Jaw new album is stunningly good. I can't get enough of this song right here.

Thank you, sir. It's been a good 2017, so far. Engagement, a pending career switch to teaching, and discovering Jukebox the Ghost. #blessed

Wow, I'm glad you liked it so much! Jukebox the Ghost is one of the few bands my girlfriend and I can agree on when we're picking stuff to listen to. :) (Her tastes are mostly contemporary and pop-y, while I'm oblivious to most music released after 2000, if not earlier.) And muchas congrats on the engagement!

post #927 of 997

Lorde's Melodrama. All of it. 

 

This is a goddamn masterpiece. 

post #928 of 997
I may or may not have 'Supercut' on repeat. I'm glad this album was great, as my anticipated pop album from the previous week was...less than great.

No reason:

Was it the Harry Styles one? I have to say, I've been generally been happy with the pop I've heard this year so far. I was slightly disappointed with Charli XCX's "Number 1 Angel," but I loved Betty Who's "The Valley." 

 

Melodrama is everything I thought the Styles would be. 

post #931 of 997

More like this:

I have flexible expectations, relative to past output/overall mindset of the artist, blah, blah, blah, but this was pretty dreadful.

post #932 of 997

I deliberately avoided the Katy Perry because I didn't want to be disappointed. 

post #933 of 997
My taste in music isn't sophisticated by my own admission, but yeah, you made the proper call on that one.
post #934 of 997

Mine isn't either. I have to rely on the 20 somethings I went to college with (I graduated in 2015) for that. 

post #935 of 997

 

Jesus Christ.  

post #936 of 997

The new National single is straight fire. It's got a sort of Boxer meets High Violet feel to it. The mixing and arrangement of the beat is a bit Radiohead-esque. Can't wait for the rest of the album.

Yes. I'm here for that. 

post #938 of 997
Stretching (literally) the definition of the word 'song', but I was listening to a podcast interview with Brian Eno earlier and they mentioned this track I'd never heard of. Listen to the first five minutes of the composer explaining the backstory:

...then hear the track itself and get ready to be affected:

Catchy, catchy.

Sexy.

The new Gary Numan track is my jam right now.

 

 

Yes...THAT Gary Numan.

post #942 of 997

The child genius (well, he's 20 now, but he was writing, recording and producing albums at 16) and his honey-voiced angel of a sister has decided to put a light, Summery EDM spin on his brand of acoustic indie whatever it is he does.  And of course, he makes that work, too.  Sky's the limit for these kids . . . it's gonna be real interesting to see where life takes them.

Digging the music itself. Iffy on the vocal delivery thus far.

post #944 of 997

Don't know what got me on a Gary Numan kick but whatever...I'm on it.  

 

I've been beating 'The Pleasure Principle' into the ground over the past week.  It's most notable for the song 'Cars' (his one big hit in North America) but the whole album is really, really solid.  It helps that he had real musicians on it vs doing everything electronic (there are no guitars, just keyboard, bass guitar, and drums).  Having a real drummer gives the album a certain gusto that it wouldn't have had otherwise.

 

Anyways, this instrumental has been on a nearly constant rotation for me:

post #945 of 997

I went back and listened to the first Bleachers record, Strange Desire, again this week. It's crazy good, and is excellent eighties pop pastiche. What I also learned was that they did an album the following year where each song on Strange Desire was covered by a female artist. This version of "Rollercoaster" by Charli XCX has been kicking my ass - and not just because it's an excellent eighties pop Springsteen pastiche, too: 

post #946 of 997

Charlie XCX hits a lot of buttons for me. Only a few of them are musical.

I feel the same way about her and Lorde. Then I remember that they're 25 and 20, respectively. 

post #948 of 997

New Quicksand song. Album is coming in November.

 

post #949 of 997

 

post #950 of 997

That new Taylor single?

 

It's fine.
