    Default Standard OT "Music: What should we be listening to" thread

    I always seem to get some great new music from OT days....so this time I'll start the thread. What music should we all be listening to?" Maybe state your favorite/typical genre so if it's in our complete "yuck" category...we can skip right over it. I'll start the ball rolling:

    Genre: Indie/Alternative/Alt. Pop

    1. Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers - a tad on the country side (think Wilco) but with melodies that will make you smile and lyrics that will touch your heart. Nice guys to boot.

    2. Frightened Rabbit - I'm seeing them on Thursday...can't wait!

    3. The National - Check out Boxer (Apartment Story, Slow Show and Fake Empire for an introduction.)

    I might be WAY behind the times, but a friend just gave me the Mumford and Sons album Sigh No More, and it is fantastic!!! If you've never heard them before, definitely check it out.

    I love Band of Horses. "No One's Gonna Love You" is so good.

    How about:

    the Decemberists - "July,July!" and "The Crane's Wife" to start

    Josh Radin - "The Fear You Won't Fall" and "One of Those Days"

    M. Ward

    Bloc Party -

    The Whitest Boy Alive - "Fireworks"

    I am actually not sure what genre it falls into (alternative?), but I loooveeee anything Andrew McMahon. That is... Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin.

    How can you not love a guy who can play the piano like that?

    I listed to mainly punk rock, alternative, and bluegrass.

    Haven't heard much new music the last few years...mostly listening to older stuff.

    I just got an Uncle Tupelo CD for my birthday, listening to that a lot, (but I think it's a 1994 album so not exactly new).

    Against Me, Smashing Pumpkins, Bouncing Souls, the Epoxies, Modest Mouse, the Ramones, and the Jayhawks are on my playlist right now.

    Also MC Chris....I recently discovered there is a "nerd core" type of rap......LOL. I have to listen to a lot of rap at work and I HATE most rap.... but this "nerd core" is hilarious.... rapping about Star Wars and computers and being a geek. An example (and I suppose I should at a "Parental Advisory" to it):

    Not sure how many people here watch Aqua Teen Hunger Force (it took me forever to get into that stupid cartoon but now I love it) MC Chris is the voice of "MC Pee Pants" the spider....

    Also, totally different from the above link, but on NPR's World Cafe I heard a kind of neat song the other day- it's a folk band called "Among the Oak & Ash" and the song was "All the Pretty Little Horses" (which I think is based on an old lullaby). This is their MySpace page, you have to scroll down and pick the song:

    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done".

    Don't let this one die....I need to update my ipod!!

    Just learned about The Avett Brothers while at Rolex....good stuff.

    I think everyone should listen to John Frusciante. He's amazing. And prolific. Start with Shadows Colide With People and then if you like it....get the rest as it is even better.

    Scot Joplin, Bix Beiderbecke, Count Basie Paul Whiteman - I could go on!

    Love Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Ruth Etting, Ella Fitzgerald etc too.

    I have a thing for Chico Marx's piano, so I've downloaded some of his pieces too

    On the flip side,

    I also like some NERD, and LMFAO really amuses me...
