    I was just reading the thread where someone was wondering how we find the songs we like, and I thought it would be a pretty good idea for us to list some new or good songs that we listen to. This would be a great opportunity to broaden our scope of songs and artists and allow us a chance to see what music you like.
    So here are some of my recommendations:
    Badly Drawn Boy - Hour of Bewilderbeast (album)[​IMG] [​IMG]
    John Mayer - Room for Squares (album)
    Scapegoat Wax - Okeeblow (album)
    OAR(of a revolution) - That was a crazy game of poker (song)
    The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist (song)
    Jimmy Eat World - Bleed American (album)
    Ben Folds - entire new album, especially the Ascent of Stan
    The KGB - Free Maryjane and Lover Undercover (songs)
    Red House Painters - all songs [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Sigur Ros - Svefn-g-englar (song) (trance type music)
    Fragma - Toca's Miracle (song) (trance type music)
    I'll list more whenever I hear some good ones! Hope you do the same! [​IMG]

    Hate Eternal - Conquering the Throne (One of the, if not THE, best death metal albums ever. I swear the drummer has 8 arms and 8 feet. It's a side project of somebody from Morbid Angel)
    Lennon - Just released her first album. Kinda hard rock/metalish. She's also really hot. [​IMG]

    She calls herself "Lennon?" Well I'm just going to start calling myself "Presley" and see if it gets ME any extra attention.

    I can't stop listening to "Solitary Shell" from Dream Theater's new album.

    Speaking of White Stripes, I just saw the "LEGO" Video (forget the name of the song, very short, occasional radio play). Very bizzare, but cool video, that looks like claymation with legos. [​IMG] OK, sorry, that has nothing to do with the topic....
    So Jasen, how is that album?
    I recommend:
    Orbital - In Sides (album, trance)
    Chemical Brothers - Exit Planet Dust (album, techno)
    BT - Rare & Remixed, IMA (albums, techno/trance/dance)
    Fiona Apple - Tidal (album)
    Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes, Under the Pink (albums)
    3 Doors Down - The Better Life (album, basic alternative rock)
    Tool - any album
    Nine Inch Nails - any album (my favorite is still Pretty Hate Machine)

    Let's see here...actually, my list looks similar to Jasen's.

    1. Bombay the Hard Way Volume 1 + 2 - Volume one is a compilation of Bollywood soundtracks mixed by Dan the Automator. DJ Shadow does some of the drum programming.

    Volume 2 is more DJ-esque, with Kid Koala, Dynomite D, and so on. No Automator or Shadow though.

    2. Aphex Twin: Selected Ambient Works 85-92 and

    Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2

    3. Anti-Pop Consortium: Arrythmia

    4. Dead Kennedys: Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables

    5. Flanger: Outer Space/Inner Space

    6. Jan Jelinek: Loop-Finding Jazz Records

    7. DJ Spooky: Under the Influence

    EDIT...I'll add another

    8. DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist - Product Placement

    The 2 of them dug out original 45's and mixed them all up. The CD is 2 tracks, each DJ going through 20+ minutes of material. Fun stuff.

    Any Fugazi album will do, but Repeater + 3 Songs or In On the Killtaker are good places to start.

    And I just got Negativland: Escape From Noise, but haven't given it a good listen.

    The New Pornographers - a wonderful "supergroup" of local Vancouver talent with the transplanted Neko Case. Poppy, upbeat rock with some catchy lyrics that keep you humming all day. Check out Mass Romantic, The Fake Headlines and Slow Descent in Alcholholism (and every other song for that matter). If you EVER get the chance to see them live (and at least like the music somewhat), make sure you do. They put on a great show, have a lot of fun on stage and Kurt Dahl, their drummer, practically does his own little one man show at the back of the stage.

    Unified Theory - Now broken up unfortunatly, but their single album will be treasured. Two of the members were a part of Blind Melon, which is noticable in a number of the songs. California is their best known single, but I recommend Instead of Running, Keep On and Not Dead.

    Blind Melon - Slight connection from the last band, but for anyone who only knows them from No Rain and the Bee Girl, you are unfortunatly missing out on what I think is/was a great band. Check out I Wonder from their first album, Toes Across the Floor and Soul One.

    Cardigans - One of the bands that has no place in my rather unvaried music collection. Except for a few misses, Gran Tourismo is a terrific album, and Deuce, which is on the X-Files soundtrack is one of my favorite songs. Except for a few select songs, their older stuff isn't really my cup of tea.

    Oh god, Sum 41 is on the radio.

    One of my absolute favourite bands of the past 5 years is Kent. They're Swedish but have a very brit-rock sound.
    They have several albums in Swedish. The last two have been re-recorded in English. Don't let that scare you off. Their lyrics are better than 99% of the crap written in English to begin with.
    Their first English endeavour, "Isola", is incredible. The material and the sound quality are too die for. It hasn't left my CD player for 4 years... I'm serious.
    Their second English album is worth getting if you like Isola. It's called Hagnesta Hill.
    Their third English CD will be out sometime this year, and will likely be called "Guns and Ammunition". The Swedish version is coming on April 15th, and it has been confirmed for release in English at a later date, TBA.
    I have turned a lot of people on to Kent. I highly recommend you try Isola. To check out their sound, try www.cdconnection.com and search for Isola. Alternatively, you can get to their band website (it's in Swedish, you'll have to navigate by guessing. LOL) by visiting www.ubl.com and searching for Kent.

    747 is a freakin' classic. One of my favourite demo tunes. [​IMG]
    Things She Said, Elvis and Celsius are all stand-out tracks. The whole album is great...
