I've recently been going all out to find new music and thought we could use a thread giving each other a head's up on new music we may not have heard of.By new I mean to you,since we have such a variance of ages here I'm sure that some of us may be aware of the artists mentioned but nonetheless I'd like to get an idea of other stuff out there.

If you'd like to add a link or copy and paste an article that'd be great.


I'm going to start with Earl Slick and I can't say enough good about his project Zig Zag.10 songs in all the project includes a few instrumentals as well as some special guest singers including David Bowie whom Earl has played with.My personal favs are the songs 1735 and Zig Zag.

Here's a little more about him. (http://www.musictap.net/Interviews/SlickEarlInterview021004.html)

Earl Slick: Six String Outlaw

The image of the journeyman guitarist is one of modern day rock and roll folklore. The idea of the lone gunslinger, a six string outlaw that brings their magic to all the world's stages before riding off into the sunset leaving us to wonder when they will return.

Earl Slick has been an in demand guitarist for the better part of 30 years having played on the most pivotal of albums by none other than David Bowie (David Live, Station To Station), John Lennon (Double Fantasy, Milk And Honey) and Ian Hunter (Overnight Angels). However, after years of constant touring and recording, Earl was exhausted spiritually and creatively and headed off for a much-needed break in the early 90s.

Disappearing for a few years, Earl was on the road once again with David Bowie in the summer of 2000 and has remained with the band touring numerous times and appearing on Bowie's "Live At The BBC Theatre" and "Reality" albums.

Having his creativity sparked by this recent activity, Earl began writing in earnest, the results of which produced his sterling new album "Zig Zag". Eager to talk about his first solo album in 12 years, Earl Slick graciously spoke to MusicTAP recently before finishing the first US leg of Bowie's "Reality Tour"

In a related story, Earnest said that he wishes people would stop doing things in him. It is giving him ulcers and indigestion.

This is a great thread idea that's getting no love. So, I'll pimp something that I expect exactly zero people to like.

I discovered this band called Tenochtitlan. They're from Russia, and the write songs about the ancient Aztec, Mayan, and Inca civilizations. The lyrics are in Russian and broken Mayan and Aztec. The song titles are mostly in Aztec.

They play a sort of atmospheric/ambient tranquil jungle music that really evokes South America, and they mix that with elements of doom metal. It's weird fun stuff that's worth a listen, I guess...

...especially since you can download both of their albums, "Chac Och-Ut," and "Epoch of the Five Suns" for free(!) @ http://www.realmusic.ru/albums/3568/ and http://www.realmusic.ru/albums/3353/

Yeah,I was hoping to make some new discoveries through this thread.

As for Tenochtitlan I listened to one song,an instrumental(I'm still on dial-up until next week so it took forever)and it reminded me of a movie score.Not to compare the two groups but I was reminded of a movie called Sorcerer that Tangerine Dream did the score for while listening to the instrumental.

I wouldn't say I didn't like it,but I'd definitely have to hear more to make a final call,in fact after next week I'll revist it and listen further.

Thanks,hopefully we'll get some more contributors for some new music.

The second track from the album you d/l from is more representative of what they do. I don't believe that I'll listen to them much, but it's original. Which is impressive in this day and age.

As for this thread, it's probably my favorite idea on the boards right now. More people should participate.

They're definitely good, but they're such an over the top homage to 70s rock that it almost moves into the realm of parody.

As for "new" stuff I've been listening to:
M.I.A. Arular. English female rapper from Sri Lanka who mixes heavily political lyrics with groovy beats that sometimes sound like they were made on a $25 keyboard salvaged from a dumpster (which they probably were).

Yup. The Black Metal thing probably comes from people comparing them to Black Sabbath, which also isn't Black Metal. They're like a 70s throwback to the darker psychedelic rock and roll.

It helps to listen to it on a good quality stereo cranked up very loud. It's textural and multilayered. The thing I probably find the most interesting is how something that starts as chaotic noise in the background will eventually work its way into the forefront and becomes the driving melody for the song.

Of course, Sabbath has nothing at all to do with black metal, thus making your use of "although" unnecessary.

I think there's 3 instrumentals of the 10,Slick used to play with Bowie among others so the rest of the songs all include guest singers Bowie being one of them.

"It's brilliant. - the Tangent has just broken away from the pack and is now sitting in that small, rarified circle of prog bands that matter."

"The Tangent - progressive rock supergroup - will be releasing their new album, A Place in the Queue, in early February. It's been touted by many as a masterpiece. And I agree, it is."

"the 25 minute track develops itself into one of the most ingenious epic tracks that recent prog history has thrown up."

"...is worthy of direct comparison to King Crimson and it's not often you can say that."

"I'll go as far as saying that A Place in the Queue may be the best progressive rock album since the 1970's."

The Black Angels

Formed in May 2004 in Austin, TX, The Black Angels' psychedelically induced rock n' roll evokes the spirit of the 1960's while awakening the heavy droning rhythms inspired by The Velvet Underground. Picture a red moonlit night, deep in the heart of Texas, with the ghosts of Nico and Timothy Leary being called back from the dead to guide you on a journey through Heaven & Hell and back again.

I used to be a regular on the Dream Theater board, and I got introduced to them there. When I first listened to their albums, I found them talented, but underwhelming. But the way the DT fanbase kept gushing about them as if they were godlike helped to nudge me from "underwhelmed" to "can't friggin' stand them!" Same goes for Pain of Salvation.

(IMO) I played it at a gig last weekend, and had a lot of questions on what song this was and who sang it. A mushroomhead fan had never heard it before, and really liked it. :rockon:
I still haven;t heard anything off of their new album, becaus ethe have a new viocalist. I loved thier old stuff, tho.

I never could get into Trivium. Dragonforce is good, and Henry Li is one badass little British Chinaman, one of the better speed players out there. The only problem I have with them is that there is an overriding sameness to about 95% of their catalogue, a problem that admittedly afflicts a lot of power and speed metal bands.

You didn't let me down with Mac n Cheese matched up with a peanut butter sandwich, so I am going to really check these guys out.

Are you still listening to them? Which album should I start with? Snow looks like it's their "masterwork"



I have to be honest here,I've downloaded a little bit of all their music and made a couple of compilation cd's of the stuff I like the best.I do have a concert DVD they put out not along though on my Christmas list.

As for some other music I've come across lately that I'm really liking

Heh. I had a similar experience with the Gourds. I actually like them okay, but I've liked them quite a bit less since I almost got into a fist fight with the banjo player one night at a show. Dude was a total asshole.

All these drunken frat kids were yelling for "Gin and Juice", and I told them to shut the **** up and let the band play what they wanted to play. The banjo player then, evidently, thinks I'm the one yelling for Gin and Juice and goes into this huge rant about it while on stage and telling me to **** off and such. I try to approach him afterwards and explain the mixup, and he continues to be a gigantic prick.

BTW, I don't care that much for Itunes. I love Amazon's service. They just started it a few months ago. They didn't have a very large selection early on. However, they have really increased their selection over the past few months.

This is a great thread idea that's getting no love. So, I'll pimp something that I expect exactly zero people to like.

I discovered this band called Tenochtitlan. They're from Russia, and the write songs about the ancient Aztec, Mayan, and Inca civilizations. The lyrics are in Russian and broken Mayan and Aztec. The song titles are mostly in Aztec.

They play a sort of atmospheric/ambient tranquil jungle music that really evokes South America, and they mix that with elements of doom metal. It's weird fun stuff that's worth a listen, I guess...

...especially since you can download both of their albums, "Chac Och-Ut," and "Epoch of the Five Suns" for free(!) @ http://www.realmusic.ru/albums/3568/ and http://www.realmusic.ru/albums/3353/


I like to listen to new and very different music... But man, I can't see how anybody could listen to this and actually enjoy it. I'm sure not criticizing your music taste -- to each his own. I wouldn't mind trying to understand what about this does anything for you though.

It's a strange sort of atmosphere. I never listen to this band apart from the occasional time a song of their comes up on shuffle mode. They're sort of fun in short, occasional bursts. Though, you have to enjoy doom metal in the first place to find dense, atmospheric music to be "fun" as I have described it.

Reminiscent of Billy Bragg, Damien Rice, taking cues from The Band at times, and early Stones at others, shades of ballady Radiohead when the feedback or mellotron makes an appearance.

I broke down and bought the Vampire Weekend CD, and I'm loving it. I'd heard some songs off of it before, but the album stands up in its entirety.

Also listening to Panda Bear's album "Person Pitch", one of the geniuses behind Animal Collective. Good stuff.

Got Tom Petty's "side project" Mudcrutch as well. I'm digging it. Definitely a little different side of Petty.

Currently playing Jay-Z's "American Gangster." Solid stuff from the jiggaman as always.

Finally Steve Earle's "Washington Square," is probably one of his more solid albums to put out in a while.

Didn't know if you knew but Mudcrutch was the name of Petty's first band and if you're a big fan I strongly suggest checking out the documentary by Peter Bogdonavich called Runnin' Down A Dream,it's a full 4 hours and 2 thumbs way up.

I also have the new project Mudcrutch and am absolutely diggin' it as well.

You know, I was really pretty dissapointed by this cd. I think my primary complaints are first, there are far too many vocalists and no one really gets a chance to stand out much, and two: lyrically.. it just sucks. I've never been a big fan of his lyrics but this cd presented me with a lot of "I can't believe he/she actually just said that" moments.

check out my solo project Mr. Slick & the Satellites (http://hypnotizedmonkey.org/OsborneGallery/Mr_Slick_and_the_Satellites/Mr_Slick_and_the_Satellites.html)...

I got tired of being in bands and having to rely on other people/ putting up with douchebag industry types, so i decided to lock myself in my laundry room and put together some experimental art rock concept albums where I could let my artistry be the main focus. I don't know of many people who could pull off doing entire albums by themselves like this... interesting to say the least. I recorded all of it with GarageBand on a Mac, played all the instruments and sang.. nobody touched the project but me. (influenced by the beatles, radiohead, science-fiction, and herb.) I dunno how active this thread is but I figured I'd throw it out there! Working on forming a band around it this year so I can play live and design crazy stage setups and just go crazy. Holler at it and let me know what ya think!
