Name a Band / Song We Should Know About

Saddened to hear of the passing of Julie Cruise, best known for her collaborations with David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti. Her album Floating Into the Night was played on repeat and my VHS copy of "Industrial Symphony No. 1: The Dream of the Broken Hearted" was well watched.

Rest in peace.

Awww... Bummer. I have some Twin Peaks vinyl and will have to give that a listen.

Gonna get this album on vinyl. Never clicked with Angel Olsen until this new album:

I got the vinyl of this from the local record store this evening. It's such a good album. I love everything going on with it.

Don't know that this is a "recommendation" but this is definitely a thing I have listened to and now you have to also

I actually like this a lot.

Whoah. New Mars Volta...

Very impressive.

Cory Branan, one of my all time favourites, released the first single off his forthcoming album. I'm really loving it! A lot of the sound (like the brass, strings etc) are a bit of a new thing for him, but it's still unmistakably Cory Branan. And if anything, is probably him letting out the Memphis in him.

And if you're unfamiliar with Cory, here's an old video of one of my most favourite songs.

After dropping singles for almost a whole year new full album dropped today (Vaxis – Act II: A Window of the Waking Mind)

So many good Glastonbury 2022 BBC videos...

Brains are stupid. I frequently forget what day it is or when a bill is due but this song from a band I haven’t listened to since high school back in the 90’s randomly appears on Pandora and I know every single word:

EDIT: oh hey another blast from the past that I haven’t heard in over two decades but can still sing along with:

Been listening to a lot of 80’s/90’s punk this week and wondering why I ever stopped.

From the first couple of chords I knew The Humpers were West Coast. Good rollicking old school fun.

Just heard them for the first time today. Reminded me of the Hu. This band is from Siberia AFAICT.

New Gorillaz is funky

New song by Brian Eno. New album coming in a few months.

Gorillaz always truck in the right goods.

Saw Eve 6 live last night at "Rock the Lake" multi-band live event here. I only really knew one of their songs from 20+ years ago.

This one I didn't know before but was great live. It's newer. Had to look it up:

This is unsurprisingly the old song of theirs I recognized:

Apparently this is another of their popular older songs but I didn't really know it:

I was there for Tea Party, Bif Naked, and Moist. I've seen Tea Party live before. They are amazing live. I'm also a bit biased since I own physical copies of nearly every album and EP they've ever released and have been regularly listening to their music for 25+ years. Regardless of all that they are just a great live rock band and I highly recommend you see them if you have the chance now that they are actively touring again. It's really unfortunate a political movement used the same name as the band.

Lineup tonight is Trooper, Nazareth, Chilliwack, Kings, and Rough Trade. Trooper should be good live. Love Hurts from Nazareth live! Brian Wilson (of Beach Boys) was supposed to perform but had to bow out due to health issues.

Friday had Flock of Seagulls, The Motels, Five Man Electrical Band (you might know their song Signs), and the Spoons.

Les Claypool's bass playing is so distinct and cool

I watched them at multiple festivals back when they broke onto the scene. They're good live. Same for Spoons, Bif Naked and Flock of Seagulls

That's quite a show! I learned the chords for Inside Out when it was popular.

I don't think I've heard about Bif Naked in over 20 years. I recall having her 1998 album, but didn't know she was still around.

Danger Mouse and Black Thought, Strangers

New Arctic Monkeys is fantastic:

Because I name-checked this song in another thread it made me go and find the video on Youtube. It's been at least 20 years since I last saw/heard this and it's even more bonkers than I remember it.

The KLF - Justified & Ancient

KLF was fun. I kind of miss them.

It showed up in a Music League recently, and I googled it and found out that it's about Discordianism (praise Eris!) which makes SO much sense in hindsight.

Been so busy I missed that Viagra Boys released a new album this summer.
