Name a Band / Song We Should Know About

Awe, man! Did you use google again?

Actually I'm just now belatedly watching "Hip-Hop Evolution", and like two days ago I got to the bit where they show early videos of Eminem battling, and I was struck by how young he looked, and then I checked and realized he's a couple years older than me

Yeah. Em has always had that baby faced look. Even today.

Hip-hop Evolution! That is a great show. I love the first episode. They casually gloss over the story of how DJ Hollywood may have invented that original late 70s rap cadence. There are many who make that claim, but I like Hollywood’s story. It seems extremely believable to me.

The KRS1 episode is great. The tribe called quest and De La Soul episode is great. The East Coast versus West Coast gangsta rap episode is awesome.

And since this is the post a song thread, here is the song that DJ Hollywood says inspired him to create that original late 70s rap cadence.

The Shat has a new album of blues standards with legendary guitarists guesting on every track. The production is top notch.

I have a CD called Golden Throats: The Great Celebrity Sing-Off! with Shatner's Mr. Tambourine Man AND Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds.

This is the full track list:
"Proud Mary" - Leonard Nimoy
"It Ain't Me, Babe" - Sebastian Cabot
"Blowin' in the Wind" - Eddie Albert
"Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" - William Shatner
"A Whiter Shade of Pale" - Noel Harrison
"I Can See for Miles" - Frankie Randall
"Try a Little Tenderness" - Jack Webb
"Twist and Shout" - Mae West
"House of the Rising Sun" - Andy Griffith
"Mr. Tambourine Man" - William Shatner
"You Are the Sunshine of My Life" - Jim Nabors
"Like a Rolling Stone" - Sebastian Cabot
"White Room" - Joel Grey
"If I Had a Hammer" - Leonard Nimoy

Apparently they also released Vols 2 through 4 of this series but I never got around to checking the the rest out. I think one volume of this was more than enough for me.

This song certainly is not new, or something that hasnt been heard before, but this version takes it to another level. He still has amazing voice

Spotify just hit me with this. I could not stop listening to this album back then...

Thanks, Warner Music Group. It was "All is full of love" by Björk.

Happy birthday, John Lennon.

New full length LP from Black Thought and it’s great.

Really funky groove. I need more of this kind of sound in my life.

Older song but I just heard it while watching Helstrom. Also comes up in Dark but I haven't gotten to that episode yet.

I also thought this guy did video games. He sounds like someone that sang in a video game but can't remember which one. I didn't see any game credits for him though.

Every time I see Zombie by Cranberries online, people say "oh, nobody can ever cover that song because Dolores O'Riordan's voice is what makes it, and her voice was unique."

And largely, I agree with them. Her voice was one of a kind.

But a few days ago, Miley Cyrus covered Zombie at the Whiskey-a-Gogo in L.A. She didn't try to copy the vocal style of O'Riordan, and her performance is pretty amazing:

New-ish Aesop Rock. He continues to own.

Somebody left a note complimenting one of my audio projects, saying they were going to use it to make sound clips for their synth music, and when I went to check their bandcamp I found it very pleasant.

It's glitchy and ambient and pseudo-random sounding (though not actually random or procedural, I don't think).

We were basking in his glow a page or 2 back.

She's been on a roll with her covers lately. Covering Pink Floyd, The Cure, Blondie and like this one knocking it out of the park.

I also enjoy this cover of Zombies that was supposed to have O'Riordan in it but she passed.

So we were. And, like, 2 posts above my RJD2 video. What even is memory and/or recall?
