Heard this on the way home tonight.
For the most part, yes. But there are plenty of kids around who love the classic sounds. I myself liked doo wop back when I was a pre-teen, and it had come out before I was born.
Wow. I had never noticed even when looking at their Wiki page that Planet P Project had a brand new album. Actually, I forgot that they had more than two albums. I have both the self-titled debut and it’s follow-up, Pink World. Great stuff, as I am a huge prog rock fan.
Avett Brothers,Black Keys,Jack White
I have listened to all of the Black Keys albums and I can’t remember hearing any songs that I didn’t like much. Good stuff. Modern, but with an authentic lo-fi garage rock sound.
Yeah, my friends and I were all about Zeppelin, Hendrix, Allmans, Floyd, Cream through high school, and this was in the early ‘90s. Then I branched from there into electric blues from the ‘60s mainly, and then vintage funk and R&B.
The other day I discovered this song...
I had my clock radio tuned to a local college station and woke up to it. It was so cool I got up and ran to the phone to ask the DJ what it was. I was hoping it was new but of course it was 1974. I bought the LP on eBay earlier this evening.
Not bad. Very mellow.
In the last five years I discovered Marshall Crenshaw, Stan Ridgway, The Waterboys and others who were cutting killer tracks in the '80's and '90s totally unbeknownst to me....
In my own very biased opinion I think Michael Ackerfeldt and Steven Wilson are as close to musical genius as I've heard in a long time.
I remember the first time I heard "Sultans of Swing" on my car radio.
Yeah, by now it's worn out its welcome, but man, what an ASTOUNDING breath of fresh air it was back then in '79.
I actually pulled off the road to listen to the whole thing, and said to myself, dear God, can this decade of crap music finally be coming ot an end???
LOL then you're not going to like those recommends in #210.
If you like southern rock, there are a few contemporary bands that do the style justice.
Black Stone Cherry (from Edmonton, KY)
Preacher Stone (from Charlotte)
Hogjaw (Not actually southern but from the Phoenix area)
BTW, Hogjaw has a great song that pays tribute to the 2nd Amendment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82h2hyM4DTM
For tough as nails, southern styled metal, Texas Hippie Coalition (from Denison, TX) is pretty good.
Wow, how sad. Something obviously went wrong with you somewhere.
Tony Carey bailed on the world. All of his stuff is self released on his own website, and he lives in Germany so shipping is pretty pricey. He did a trilogy Go Out Dancing (G.O.D.) which is kind of biography of the boomer generation, the first 2 are amazing the 3rd is lacking something (he almost died of cancer inbetween). And he said that was going to be the end for PPP, but then he decided G.O.D.3 was too much of a downer, so he did Steeltown about a town occupied by the Nazis, so much more cheerful. Amazingly talented guy, his non-PPP stuff is good too but he puts that extra pop in for PPP.
Apologies to any of the thread posters who may not have wanted to try some/any of the new music posited here, but for the rest, you can all use GrooveShark to see if you like the music artists that many of the folks here recommended without having to otherwise chase down the music.
Again, GrooveShark is free and can be used to find music by Artist Name, Song Title, Album Name if not a few other ways.
Try it without the dubs...
I love grooveshark.
If it can’t be found on 8-track, it ain’t worth crap!
