How about some more jazz oriented stuff? Big fan of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Quincy Jones, Yoko Kanno,
I play guitar as well, and am hugely inspired by Trey Anastasio and Larry LaLonde.
I'm a big fan of Phish and Primus, most Claypool solo projects, Tom Waits, Cat Stevens, Neil Young, Moody Blues, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Loreena McKennitt, Sarah McLachlan, Warren Zevon, The Clash.

Recently I've also been been getting into some Utada Hikaru, Modest Mouse, Mulatu Astatke (thanks to director Jim Jarmusch's 'Broken Flowers'), Dresden Dolls, and some Blonde Redhead.


Tons more I could go into, but anyone have any thoughts so far?

sorry dude, only knew like two of all those guys you mentioned. If you like jazzy blues check out "son of dave". the album's well worth getting, the stuff this guy does is unbelievable, I only just saw him live yesterday.
www.sonofdave.com

if you can get the whole songs...it's only one guy playing and doing all the beats and voices...sounds like a 5 piece band by the end of his songs!

Hey I checked that stuff out, pretty interesting. Unfortunately I can only listen to those 30 second clips on the web site, I don't have the cash to purchase the album right now, but it's definitely something I'll scope out when I have the oppurtunity.

Do you live near London? I noticed that most of his shows were based around the area. Sounds like it would be one interesting kind of show.

No, I live in Manchester. We drove down to Leeds, which is about an hour away, just to see this guy. Luckily the gig was free so we had nothing to lose. It was a pretty strange experience, as he's a pretty strange guy, but the music was incredible and his live performance was just as good as the records. Add a little banter and humour, and it was one of the best gigs I've been to recently.

Unfortunately the 30 second clips don't do the songs true justice, as throughout each song he builds up many layers by looping his own voice or melody. So if you can find the whole songs they're well worth listening to.

Looking back over this ancient topic, I realize I might have been the only one in the thread who didn't have long hair or own a concert T-shirt. Laughing

I've been doing something else with regards to finding music to listen to- over the years, my tastes tend to lean towards older artists... and the downside to that is that there usually isn't any new material coming out.

Sooner or later, you find yourself tiring of the same stuff, so you search for more. Nowadays I have a radio station tha either plays new stuff from new artists and/or older artists that I still listen to.

It's not a bad system. Wink

Making your spam link too small for people to actually see kinda defeats the purpose- doesn't it, asswipe?
