very chill and relaxing music, which is what i'm really into these days.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Not a bad album, but I probably heard the best 3 songs ("Faithless," "Tradition" & "Messiah") before the album was released. I kinda ruined the experience for myself and had my hopes up based on those 3 songs. I really liked "Hurting" outside of the aforementioned songs, though.

Speaking of Beach Fossils, their new album leaked awhile back ago. Not bad, but it's more of the same. I always find 1 or 2 songs on their albums that blow me away than the rest of the album never catches my attention. Oh well.

I can't believe it's been since 1991 or so since their last album & they come back like gang busters... Love the new album.

i wish artists these days would wait longer in between releases, maybe not 2 decades..laugh.gif

 

but at least give themselves enough time to grow musically..

 

but yeah, this album is crazy.. i'm in love with it.

James Blakes new track, "retrograde" is just premiering. SOunds amazing, can't wait for him to drop a new album, one of the most anticipated albums of the year for me, after his self-titled debut record.
RIP Mike Szabó aka my godfather.

Little Dragon x Clams Casino - Ritual Union (Duncan Gerow)

Starvin' for some new Little Dragon...




Edit - interesting story about Phoenix's forthcoming album.

http://pitchfork.com/news/49468-phoenix-bought-the-recording-console-used-for-michael-jacksons-thriller-to-make-their-new-album/

Quote:
This week's issue of The New Yorker has a nice little nugget of contemporary music trivia: Phoenix's upcoming record Bankrupt! was mixed on the fabled Harrison 4032 solid-state recording console used to make Michael Jackson's legendary Thriller.

According to The New Yorker, Phoenix guitarist Laurent Brancowitz found the console for sale on the eBay page of owner Clayton Rose, who owns a Christian music studio in Fullerton, California. Upon consulting with the band, they decided they "had to have it" because they "liked the idea of working with a consecrated artifact, as well as having something strange upon which to fixate between albums."

"The most mysterious part to me was that no one else-- no nerd or music engineer or memorabilia freak-- seemed to want it," frontman Thomas Mars told The New Yorker. "There was something a little spooky about him [Rose]. He was very pushy. It seemed like a scam. " After a prolonged and skeptical online back-and-forth with Rose, Mars committed to the console for a price of $17,000 (the original asking price was $32,000) and shipped it to Paris to begin mixing Bankrupt!.

A couple more tidbits from the piece: The Harrison is as "long as a Ping-Pong table and weighs eleven hundred pounds" and Bankrupt!'s original working title was Alternative Thriller. (This seems to be a trend.)

Jim James - A New Life

Vid was just released. I guess the Jim James solo album was released already. I'll pick it up tomorrow when I go to buy SkyFall.

I like the new James Blake song too.

post #599 of 1424
smokin.gif .. I actually just got into some Indie music last night when I was bored and tired of listening to the same stuff over and over. I listened to Gotye's 'Making Mirrors', Goldfrapps 'The Singles' mix, Kimbra's 'Vows' and Chromatics 'Kill For Love'.

As a guy who mainly listens to Rap and Hip Hop I absolutely love this genre of music. Out of the music I listened to last night I think I liked Gotye's. Wasn't really feellin' Chromatics. Goldfrapp had a couple songs that I'd listen to again, and I only got a couple songs deep into Kimbras so I cant give an opinion on that one.

I'm a complete newb to the genre and will read through this thread (that I was excited to see was on here) but does anybody have any recommendations or must listen to songs and/or albums? I prefer a more uptempo approach but appreciate good music either way so any input is appreciated.

i personally recommend,

 

beach house-bloom

wild nothing-nocturne

grizzly bear-shields

purity ring-shrines

grimes-visions

crystal castles-II

how to dress well-total loss

tame impala-lonerism

the xx-xx

toro y moi-causers of this 

neon indian-psychic chasms
