Name a Band / Song We Should Know About

In 2014 I had my first child and a new job, so forgive me that I missed this but...rum buh bum.

I often listen to music as a fall asleep. Sometimes I want something relaxing to drift off to. Usually something like Brian Eno's ambient stuff fits the bill.

But, sometimes I want the music to wrap me up and consume me. That's where Zola Jesus's album, Stridulum, comes in.

That Handsome Devil - Savages

Nice. I'd really only heard "Rob the Prez-O-Dent" from That Handsome Devil (because of Rock Band 2).

New "The Presets" album out.

Apparently I missed that Alison Wonderland has a new album earlier this year too.

Has a cool sound to it

I saw some Jason Isbell earlier. I am a fan, but for my time, I think that Amanda Shires is where it is at. Those two are just shining stars in Americana right now.

Sudan Archives is my current favorite summer band:

Also this awesome Kendrick cover:

We need some New Zealand music in here

Classic

Classic drinking song

Third classic lucky!

Just had to share that I saw my second live show of The Regrettes in six months. They're amazing, upbeat and powerful.

Awesome!!!

Gonna have to go pick up this record today.

Whoa, I thought she looked familiar. This is a really cool shift from her meekakitty comedy stuff that I completely missed!

I've been listening to Sheena Ringo for a long time and she moves easily from rock to jazz to pop to orchestral to noise to tapping into some horror-type-genre of her own making, (some of her songs are downright spooky), so I'm not sure I can put a label on her. If you're looking for a very emotive vocalist and musician who holds nothing back, give her a listen.

Song: Tsumi To Batsu
Artist: Sheena Ringo

A 16 year old friend of the family decided to start putting some music out on youtube looking for feedback and tips on how she can get better. All her stuff is mainly electronic and chip tunes with no vocals.

Habibi you can drive my car....

The singer has a great story too: https://www.standswithimmigrants.org/nano-raies/

I love Gunship. I frequently listen to their music on repeat while I game. This isn't their best but I def enjoyed it. New album incoming this fall. They've been described as "80s’ cyberpunk nostalgia".

Cartoon violence warning....

Some "exotic" music from Eastern Germany released in 1977. It's a shortened version and you don't really have to be able to speak German to enjoy it. In fact, the lyrics aren't even making too much sense if you do speak German.

Love Meg Myers! Motel is one of my favorite songs.

Never heard of her before and now I’m hooked. Thanks for sharing!

This one is my favorite of hers. Didn't know people didn't know about her or would've posted her old stuff long ago.

Amanda Shires new album is on NPR's First Listen.

There are posts about Prince and A Perfect Circle a few pages back. I'm pretty sure anything goes.
