I like all kinds of music. Country, rap , rock , classic rock, alt rock, jazz, metal rock, etc.....
right now I'm into "theory of a deadman". I've got a Rhapsody account and like to change my music to fit my mood. For the past week I've been into "theory of a deadman" Bad Girlfriend. which is an excellent song by the way..

But my question is ...What are the other Planetteers listening to???

holy shit could Theory of a deadman's new song be any more of a rip off of the cult firewoman. I can't even do my shtick on this thread. I burned a crapton of my morning jacket, Karate, Rush, sick puppies, me you and the gimmie gimmie's, unwritten law, and because I like to drink and put on stupid hats and dance like a fool

I'm always all over the place, but the thing that has most recently been blowing up my earholes is electro and French house stuff. You know, mostly. Boys Noize (****ing love Boys Noize), Danger, Justice, DatA, and so on.

But I've also been listening to Regina Spektor, who is probably at the top spot of my "people I want to grow up to be" list. And some Living Colour, because someone gave me rep for posting a "Cult of Personality" video and I really like them.

I haven't gotten my hands or head deep in a bunch of stuff lately, because I work alot, and do other projects, but I plan on really giving a good listen to new stuff because I am trying to not go out drinking and doing dumbass shit. My next project will be to give a long listen to some other stuff. It is crazy how much you like a band if you can get your guitar or snare to sound remotely like that band.

I've been listening to a lot of the same stuff recently. I saw Wolf Parade in concert about a month ago, and they put on a great show.
Also just got into Yeasayer, Port O'Brien, Firewater, Lykke Li, Santogold, and the Walkmen's newest album. Also been re-listening to some M.Ward.

Haven't really found that much in the way of new hip-hop lately to attract my attention other than the Lil' Wayne album, which still isn't as good as his other stuff. I did get the new Nas, but I only like a couple of the songs on the album.
Because of that, I've been going back an listening to older Lupe Fiasco, Madlib, Atmosphere, and David Banner (but not his newest album). I was watching an episode of The Wire and it made me want to go through and re-listen to Ludacris just for the funny lyrics.

This week, I came across one of the Van Halen best of albums. So I got that going. I hadn't listend to "Everybody Wants Some." in a while. So I had to!

Otherwise nothing new or released in the past year. (I generally try and find something new from either an old favorite or try and take a chance on something I've never heard.)

Andrew WK
Baroness -The Red Album (my head is still trying to wrap around this album.)
Colisium
Dillinger Escape Plan-Ire Works (Usually it's blast beats, however they slowed it down w/ good songs that sound like a heavier Faith No More.)

I recently bought Dr Dre's the Chronic. I forgot how awesome that record was.

Every Time I Die-The Big Dirty.---These guys probably write the best guitar riffs of the decade.

Otherwise I have a heavy dose of George Thorogood, Misfits, Unsane, Black Flag and the Bronx.

I highly recommend seeing them live. They're incredibly (still an understatement) physical in their show w/ how they move and just w/ how violent they are when they play. Yet they still sound awesome.

I caught them in Springfield a couple years back, and the singer just randomly started breathing fire at the end of the show. It was like........WTF!!??!?!?

Recently, a lot of Madlib production, from Dudley Perkins (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0HonymaKbM) to Quasimoto (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Q5Bsm4uliY) to Madvillain (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcDa38nlYSQ) to Percee P (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxuHQPMD7AE) to Erykah Badu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hCtjoq3KG4) to his solo, non-Quasimoto shit (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkgfXv9WTwE).

I really like the first two tracks off of the new TV on the Radio album.

As (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hCtjoq3KG4) usual, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZs8OZpmJq8) Slow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFysVQ3NZUI) Motion (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fF7pK1oQBIw) Soundz (http://fairtilizer.com/track/strictlybusiness) which I wish had better management so they'd get wider exposure. (http://gvsbchris.com/bamagettinmoneydiplo.mp3)


And, as always, a ton of really shitty prog trying to find a unique sound here or there to use in a beat.

Anarchy Club - yeah, not great musicians/songwriters, but some of their stuff just sounds good - Enemy Ace....Behind The Mask....Collide

System of a Down - been really getting into them in the past 9 or 10 months (Hypnotize & Mesmerize). Yeah, I know those albums are 3 years old. So I am not a young hipster. :p
Funny thing about my discovery of SOAD. I didn't know much about them and never gave them much thought until one day when my son found a cd (Hypnotize) on the sidewalk. It was scratched up but you could still play most of the songs. I quickly became addicted to that album. I ended up downloading the uncensored version of it and Mesmerize a couple months later. Some of my favs on these are Attack, Kill Rock N Roll, Holy Mountain, Vicinity Of Obscenity, B.Y.O.B., Cigaro, Violent Pornography, and if for nothing else but the title, This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song.
I just downloaded Toxicity and Steal This Album last week. While not quite as good as the latest 2 albums, they do have some very cool songs. I love this band because they are so different than most metal or rock bands. Some of my favs are Toxicity, Aerials, Chic N Stu, Prison Song, & Chop Suey.

The Decemberists - much more mellow and folk sounding stuff than what I usually get into, but it is progressive (which is right up my alley) and they are very solid musicians. I find them to be very addictive.

Some of my favs on these are Attack, Kill Rock N Roll, Holy Mountain, Vicinity Of Obscenity, B.Y.O.B., Cigaro, Violent Pornography, and if for nothing else but the title, This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song.
I just downloaded Toxicity and Steal This Album last week. While not quite as good as the latest 2 albums, they do have some very cool songs. I love this band because they are so different than most metal or rock bands. Some of my favs are Toxicity, Aerials, Chic N Stu, Prison Song, & Chop Suey.

The Decemberists - much more mellow and folk sounding stuff than what I usually get into, but it is progressive (which is right up my alley) and they are very solid musicians. I find them to be very addictive.

I get into a "SOAD mood" every few months. Definitely a cool band (but boy do they suck live!).

I turned the opening riff of "Attack" into a ring tone :D

If you don't have obZen yet, GET IT!!! It's on par with I and Chaosphere IMHO; some of the songs I would rate as their best (Combustion, Bleed, obZen, Pravus, Dancers to a Discordant System)

I have not listened to obZen yet, looking at the discography I've missed a few. The last one I bought was "Chaosphere" in 98 (my fav) and "Destroy Erase Improve" is the only other one I've had before that. If it wasn't for seeing them with Tool in 2001 I probably would have never heard of them. The live performance just blew me away, amazing skills these guys have.

Chaosphere is really good.

Some people don't like Catch 33, as it is a bit slower/grinding, but I like it.

"My problem is that politics is the first thing that defines who I am. It's like, "You're just The Other, you're this thing. You have evil thoughts about the world." When I watch President Bush on the telly going, we need to fight the axis of evil and kill these terrorists by all means necessary, I just go, "Shit, poor Dad." In the 70s all Dad wanted to do was be a revolutionary like Bob Dylan. He had idealistic views about changing the world for the better and fighting for people who don't have a voice - the same thing that Bob Dylan wanted to do. Now, he's like this straight-up, evil terrorist; a gunned masked man with a semi-automatic ready to take down and behead people. "

It's a catchy tune, but I can't get past her radical political lyrics.

Maya Arulpragasam or M.I.A (Missing in Action), is the daughter of a major figure in the Tamil Tigers of Sri-Lanka.

As terrorist groups go, it has quite a résumé:

Perfected the use of suicide bombers;
Invented the suicide belt;
Pioneered the use of women in suicide attacks;
Murdered some 4,000 people in the past two years alone; and
Assassinated two world leaders—the only terrorist organization to do so.
No, it’s not al Qaeda or Hezbollah or even HAMAS. The group is called the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) or the Tamil Tigers for short.

Needless to say, the Tamil Tigers are among the most dangerous and deadly extremists in the world. For more than three decades, the group has launched a campaign of violence and bloodshed in Sri Lanka, the island republic off the southern coast of India.

I agree that MIA supports the Tamil Tigers, that's been known for a long time. That being said, I interpret her comments about her dad differently. She's saying that, to her, her father is someone who wants to help people and change the world ala Bob Dylan. Now, with Bush's policies and the "war on terrorism", her dad is seen as some masked terrorist who beheads people. She isn't saying that her dad actually beheads people.

Also, as with many rap lyrics, I tend to separate the artist from the narrator, just as with poetry. Just because a speaker in a poem is espousing a particular point of view or claiming a particular lifestyle, doesn't mean that the author is speaking of him or her self. In other words, I think she's writing that lyric from the point of view of someone who hustles, doesn't give a shit about other's lives, and wants nothing but money, not that she herself participates in that or feels that way. I won't try to give some positive twist like people used to do for gangster rap and say that she's trying to raise awareness of these people and the problems, but I will say that it's will within artistic license to assume a persona when writing that is separate from one self.

Nice.

Did the reminiscing thing tonight and listened to Cowboys from Hell. Saw them in concert in '91 with Suicidal and Exodus. One of the best shows I've ever been to.

Been just getting back into new music for the first time in a decade or more. Really diggin' on Dimmu Borgir's In Sorte Diaboli. Also really like that Uneath song they play a lot on Sirius, My Will Be Done.

So much awesome new metal out now I feel like a kid in a candy store. All these new labels for types of metal is a bit much though. I mean, come on (in my best bloods/crips accent), do we really need a classification for "atmospheric metal". Shit, when I was a kid there were two kinds a metal. Toke Metal and Blow Metal. Up or Down. Thrash made it's occasional appearance whenever some fuckers from doodah drove through town, but that was about it.

:shake:

Might as well go catalog based on album covers. Teals this way, Mauves that way, blah, blah, blah. Oh well. Some good shit out there, and I really don't care what label it is.

How you liking the new Metallica? I'm having trouble getting used to James' vocal changes. Started with St. Anger and continues on this album. I can't quite describe it, but his voice has changed from previous work and it feels like nails on a chalkboard.

Stupid lyrics like "make you more strong" really turned me off to, but so far I've only heard the 2 songs they play on Sirius. Neither of which I could get into. I don't mind stupid content or even childish crap like SoaD used to do, but some things just grate. That "make you more strong" line just makes me cringe.

On a side note, I decided to start buying a new album every payday now that I enjoy music again, went with Trivium's Shogun tonight. Mostly because of Kirisute Gomen. That song ABSOLUTELY FUCKING ROCKS. Unfortunately, the rest of the album is kind of blah. Considering I was one of the few people that seemed to like Crusade, I guess I shouldn't have expected the rest of the album to follow. The music is pretty good, but much more laid back than I expected, and way too much singing.

Guess I should have gone with one my other choices of either Unearth or Amon Amarth. It's not a bad album, just not what I was looking for, or expecting.

I ended up grabbing the Unearth album anyway. I figure Trivium's one good song on the album shouldn't count. So far enjoying every song on The March.

Unearth's The Stings of Conscience is as good as metalcore can get. I didn't care for TOS or anything after. I had a chance to see them a handful times, twice at the El Torreon and once at The Spitfire (now Korruption), by far one of the better metal shows I've seen. I'm an old timer as well, and the subgenre catagories can get a bit ridiculous, but with the hundreds of metal albums that come out each week, the sub-catagories are necessary to keep me from wasting my time on something I know I won't like.

Right now I'm revisiting Engorged's Where Monsters Dwell in prep for their '09 release House of Cthulhu. For some old style thrash I'm jamming Funerot's Invasion From The Death Dimension.

Some of the sing-song stuff. Serg (however you spell it) has got great vocals, but he uses it like a kazoo at a carnival some times. Pretty much all the stuff off Mezmerize would be a good example. I actually like the album, but I don't get into it. It's kind of like a Weird Al type of music for me. Something good for a chuckle and a quick smile that I might listen to when the player is on random.

Yeah, I guess metal is no longer a bunch of bootlegged tapes getting passed around between fans. In high school we used to go to this tiny ass little place called Pirate Records. Seriously, it was maybe a 30' by 10' store with nothing but used tapes and some of the new stuff that you could actually buy like Metallica and Slayer. Absolutely nothing but metal. That was pretty much it. There really was no music scene where I was.

There was really no need for different genres. We pretty much listened to everything and categorized as suck and not suck.

Oh well, I'll have to check out some of Unearth's earlier stuff like Stings of Conscience. So what the hell is "metal-core"? I checked out some reviews of Straight Line Stitch because I liked the song she did with the guy from Hatebreed (jasta?), but everybody panned it as "nu-metal". Sounds like I'm a fan of "pop" or something.

So what the hell is "metal-core"?

Too me metalcore is what the name implies, a form of metal with elements of hardcore. Unearth is a good example with use of metal riffs with some breakdowns and occassional gang vocals. It seemed to evolve as hardcore bands started to become more metallic with their riffs. I like both metal and hardcore, but I like them both seperately, its hard for me to find metalcore bands that I like, old Unearth is one of them. Both metal and hardcore purists can get rather pissy when it comes to the blend in styles.

I also used to trade tapes back in the day and I also relied heavily on the section in Metal Maniacs where people would write in and list the bands that they were into.

God help me, but I rented two Panic! at the Disco CDs from the library, and I'm liking it at this point in time. I like eclectic music that draws from diverse genres, and they're fitting the bill at this point in time.

You're taking the first steps down the slippery slope of emo. Be careful.

The National's last CD, Alligator, and the latest from the Hold Steady have been in steady rotation.

I don't remember that piece in the movie, but to be honest, I don't remember much about that movie. ;)

What appeals to me in the piece is its interweaving lines. Mozart basically split the orchestra into multiple sections, not just down instruments, then had each playing a different sheet than the others. When played together, with an excellent conductor (I recommend Karajan), it comes together brilliantly.

I am more of a fan of Beethoven... Symphonies 1,2, and 9 being my favorites.

I like Beethoven's Ninth especially Ode to Joy. Of course everyone knows his 5th and Fur Elise too well, which I also like but can get tiring if played too mcuh. I'm not as crazy about him as I am others like Vivaldi even his concerto's for instruments.

Beethoven was the guy who say 'eff you I'm going to do things my way and you're gonna listen as opposed to being a hired hand like the others before him.


I love this piece for the lute. ( 'cause I had to draw a lute for a playbill for the Sound of Music and was looking up lutes)

Fur Elise is my favorite piano piece. I'm a sucker for minor scales.

Mozart used a healthy dose of both; the major scales are probably what people are referring to when you hear them say his work is "happy".

I'm not sure what the deal is about the copyright. I've gone and seen a lot old punk bands that I'm not old enough to have seen in their prime and while it's not the same as being there back in the day it's still been worth it. The new Misfits instruments were so loud you couldn't hear any of the vocals. You'd think having two ex-black flag members in your band (Dez Cadina and Robo) they'd have enough sense to end the band.
