Share that music you are currently listening to Catch-All

I tried my hardest but I couldn't find a general music thread. Point it out if there is one, otherwise, post that tune that's got you currently bobbing your head. I don't care if it's top 40 trash or hipster garbage. Lets hear it.

I'm currently on a bluegrass kick.

I just pulled the top five most recent songs from my most played playlist so there’s not a lot of thematic or genre consistency here:

AJJ - Kokopelli Face Tattoo (probably my favorite song from one of my favorite bands)

Open Mike Eagle - Headass

Orville Peck - No Glory in the West (I normally dislike country but Peck is making me reconsider)

Doomtree - The Bends (hands down my favorite band)

Leftöver Crack - Last Legs

Mudbunny just sent me back to college with those first two.

ruhk, if you are giving country another shot, go through my list. If you like Peck you will probably like a few of those. Also, since you like Open Mike Eagle, hopefully you know who Run the Jewels are.

I mean, I think I know who they are since they’re one of the biggest current rap groups.

I’ve actually been listening to El-P since ‘99 when I heard Co Flow’s 8 Steps to Perfection playing in a record store in Madison. It was a sad day last year when my last Def Jux hoodie finally fell apart, now that it can’t be replaced.

I've been listening to hip hop since the mid 90s and I never heard of them until I moved to Atlanta. To me, they are still an under appreciated group.

Did you watch their concert over the weekend?

Everglow - La Di Da
The 80s meets Sin City

Jessi - Nunu Nana
Jersey attitude meets Kpop

Red Velvet - Psycho
This song is single-handedly getting me through 2020. Hey now we'll be okay. Hey now we'll be okay. It's alright.

Honestly I’m actually a little on the outs with RTJ right now because it’s really hard for me to listen to Killer Mike spit bars about revolution and insurrection after hearing Michael Render clutch pearls over property damage during the protests earlier this year. I still like RTJ and even Mike’s solo stuff, but I’ve needed to shelve it for a later date.

Yeah, I do like to hear Mike talk, but I totally get that.

They really have that KPop formula down. Probably a dumb question: Is there such a thing as indie Kpop?

Of course. I'm not as well versed in their indie scene but here's a couple examples:

Standing Egg - Little Star

Stella Jang - YOLO

COVID-induced torpor has slowed down my music consumption, but one track that managed to stir me was this crazy, 22-minute, retro prog track from Daniel Romano, Forever Love's Fool. I had pegged Romano as an alt-country guy, but this year he's released hardcore punk, power pop and freak folk. He's had a ridiculously prolific 2020, releasing 9 albums to date.

The song sounds like George Harrison fronting a '70s band like Nektar... And although it doesn't resemble anything Tool has recorded, the track features that band's Danny Carey on percussion.

Mostly stuff I've been practicing for my weekend jam band.

Returning to the office has brought back my commute, for which I have dusted off some old school funky James Brown

Also digging the Sleaford Mods for that austerity post-punk

EDIT oops double post
