New Music

Recommended Posts

I know we all listen to some music, and not everyone listens to the same stuff. I am looking for some new music to listen to, and add to my playlists. I like to have music playing in the background when I am working in my shop, playing on the computer or going for my runs.

Anyone have any suggestions for me?

I will listen to just about anything. At least give it a good try before I delete it off my playlists. :)

By give it a good try before I delete it off my playlists, I mean that I would only delete it if it turns out that I don't enjoy that particular tune. LOL

Tim Barry is always worth checking out. Rivanna Junction is my personal favorite album. Joey Knieser from Glossary (TN) released a solo album last year that is incredible. The name escapes me at this time. Just google his name and solo record. Its free to download on his website along with his sisters album.

Listen to Blood for Blood. That's mandatory.

what type of stuff are you into?

I usually listen to alternative, or rock. I have hip hop and reggae, with some country. I have some heavy metal and rockabilly. as I said I like all sorts of music.

try turntable.fm or spotify. plenty of ways to discover new music via those free sites/services.

I think my Itunes has a radio function I should check it out and write down names of bands and songs I like! LOL thanks for the reminder on that I totally forgot.

i listen to john frusciante often, his solo stuff, not all his albums are to many people's tastes but i highly recommend the empyrean, shadows collide with people and the will to death. they are slightly more listenable in a work environment.

Recently I was told about the XX, they only have one album out but it's awesomely chilled out and a bit goth which is always good in my book. UNKLE's War Stories is also great, chris goss helped produce it.

Beck has a big bunch of awesome albums too, Boards of Canada's Geogaddi, also check out Basil Poledouris' Conan the barbarian OST, I listen to it a few times a week at least, so good!

I agree, you should check out spotify for finding new music, the 'similar artists' bit really helps find new music. i use the paid for spotify service which allows 'offline' mode so you can play saved playlists and radios on your iphone/ipod. really worth the money and then some. good luck!

ps. Fragile by Yes

I was getting. . . not tired of the regular music I listen to but more afraid of the songs I listen to becoming over played and wanted to throw in some new tunes to switch it up a bit

Kelly Kneiser is actually Joey Kneiser's ex-wife (i think they have two kids together). and don't listen to D about Blood for Blood. they're not mandatory.
