Need New Music



Bored with everything in iTunes today, resorted to listening to The Strokes' career highpoint. Any suggestions? Nothing to folky but nothing with loads of gun talk either (for being somewhat indiscriminate, I'm kinda picky).

From my experience, you can never go wrong with Bloc Party. Any and all Bloc Party. "Mercury" or "Ares" in particular. Sorry couldn't recommend anything new. New music scares me.

The Bamboos have been tearing up my iPod lately. Check out their album '4.'

The Twelves or Classixx or Duck Sauce.

The xx or Transferance by Spoon - not sure your tastes.

Michael said...

surfer blood! their whole album. "swim" is my favorite.

Jamie said...

He's been plugging the xx for a while now. I still haven't warmed to the new Spoon, but I keep going back to it to give it another chance. I'll probably end up "discovering" it six months after the fact like I do with every album Interpol releases. But it's the first Spoon album that hasn't grabbed me right away. By the way, for another Austin band that sound like Spoon Jr. (with a touch of Elliott Smith), check out Wiretree.

Second Michael's suggestion. It's been a while since the last new guitar band that didn't sound painfully self-aware of their retro-ness. Surfer Blood just play their instruments well.

SF asking me for music recommendations? what is this, Bizzaro World?

just finished my new record. not your kind of thing at all, despite multiple Depeche Mode references... not that that will stop me from linking to it:

If you like the Strokes, you might like The Airborne Toxic Event, esp. their song Does This Mean You're Moving on? Good stuff, imo.

Wild Beasts.

Sly said...

Check out Broken Bells.

"this town needs guns" or "we were promised jetpacks"

their names give them a bad first impression, but they are truly great up and coming bands.

White Lies.

Alan said...

May I suggest something completely different?

I love 60 & 70's Jamaican ska & reggae. Listen to some Maytals, Desmond Dekker, old Bob Marley & The Wailers, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Justin Hinds & the Dominoes, Prince Buster, the Skatalites, The Crystalites, Laurel Aitken, Jackie Opel, King Stitt, The Ethiopians, The Paragons, etc.

Look for Trojan (Records) Box Sets on iTunes for a start.

Julian Casablancas from the Stroke's solo album is damn fine

Best Coast or No Age.
