Recent musical discoveries/current obsessions


What are yours?

I rediscovered Hell Is For Heroes last night...they remind me of being thirteen, but I'd forgotten how good they were. Shame they've split up because I'd have loved to see them live.

Currently also: Four Tet, Iron And Wine, Death Cab For Cutie, The Joy Formidable and Soundgarden.

I am currently obsessed with Alabama 3. They make (in their own words) Sweet Pretty Muthafuckin Country Acid House Music.
You should click that link and read their bio, because they say it better than I ever could :)
Tracks you should try first: Woke Up This Morning, Cocaine Killed My Community, How Can I Protect You, Monday Don't Mean Anything.

They have all their music on Spotify, if you have access to such a thing.

INXS.
I wouldn't call it an obsession, but I'm starting to gain a lot of respect for them. Everyone thinks "Yeah, yeah, Need you tonight, never tear us apart, whatever", but they actually have quite a few good songs.

Aww, florence and the mahcine are ace!
My most recent discovery and current obsession is "dark cabaret". Pre-Last.fm i thought there was no-one like the Dresden Dolls but there's a whole genre!

IAMX because the new album is absoloutely stunning. I also think Lady Gaga is pretty cool, even if her songs get annoying after a while :)
Oh, and Sue And The Unicorn! It's Sue Denim from RiD's solo project and she's pretty good. Her songs are very accoustic and laid back...good for de stressizing.

I have been racking my brains but I can't for the life of me work out who Steve is?! This is what comes of only referring to musicians and actors by their last names.

I looove Imelda May, just bought her album :)

White Lies. Fawking amazing.
And I re-discovered Tyr. Faroese lyrics = awesomeness.

Edit: Listened to some Vernian Process today. Steampunkish dark ambient. Yum. Yum.

Just wanted to say how nice it is to hear someone bigging up Alabammy 3. All of Brixton used to go to their house parties, they were right local lads! My favourite song is 'Mansion on the Hill' (my number 1 song for starting a revolution). And I like "U don't dance to techno anymore" which is very poignant. Also a big fan of "Ain't going to Goa'. Just get on down to your tabernacle and SING.

Which will make sense. If you listen to the track.

Currently thinking the sexiest song ever is Dogs of Lust by The The.
