What's everyone listening to these days?

Like Amorette, I'm pretty bored with the political discussions here these days too. Its summer - time to fire up the barbie and listen to some hot tunes. I've been listening to a lot of country these days, and as of yesterday afternoon the following CDs have been in my carousel (it holds 5):

1. Slobberbone - Everything You Thought Was Right Was Wrong Today
2. Drive-By Truckers - Decoration Day
3. The Bottle Rockets - 24 Hours a Day
4. Robbie Fulks - Country Love Songs
5. The Waco Brothers - New Deal Blues

Good stuff all. I just hit the shuffle button and let'em fly.

Then yesterday afternoon some friends came over for dinner - Mexican night, we had green chile and chicken enchildas (made with Big Jims from Hatch, NM!), antelope carnitas tamales, served with rice and beans, homemade red chile sauce, pico de gallo, homebrew and Pineapple Margaritas. That warranted loading the changer up with reggae:

1. The Wailers - Soul Rebel
2. Desmond Drekker - Best of
3. Toots & the Maytalls - Best of
4. Third World - Reggae Embassadors
5. The Wailers - Burnin' (cause you can't play enough Bob!)

So what else is everyone playing to beat the heat?

I listen to alot of country these days. During the school year I listened to more rock/pop/punk/alternative type stuff. (Cause we actually have radio stations that play music other than 80's crud...) I don't have VH1 or MTV at home either, so I pretty much am limited to 92.5 or one of my very few CD's.

I fully agree with Brady. Well, the earlier entry about Shea Stewart.

I've greatly enjoyed what music I've gotten the chance to listen to on Fridays at Veterans' Park and Shea has been one of the best to catch. This kid hasn't been playing all that long, either, which really impresses me. For anyone who hasn't gotten the chance to sit in on the event you really should take the time. It is a show-up/listen/leave anytime you want deal. As for young Mr. Stewart, he can play.

As for music -- first I'm a big fan of Apple's iTunes, but I can't afford an iPod (birthday gift hint. Hmmm.) Now, I don't care what anyone thinks I'll say it -- I like the Dixie Chicks. That's right, buddy, so get off my back.

Take a look at one of these. The same hard drive (Ipod) size will cost you $50 - $100 more (depending on whatever it is the determines the prices on this website - I got mine for $192 and now they are $250 something). At any rate, this machine has a nice little color screen that plays back video. You can also hook it up to your TV, it's very cool. Plus, for you Dixie Chicks fans, it's made in France.

Oh my, what have I done? Anti-American band and Anti-Apple Computer in just one little comment. Quick, close the box lid. Acutally I don't listen to anything. I, ahh, whistle a lot making the songs up as I go . . . using no electronic musical device.

All time favorite band -- okay here goes -- Earth, Wind, and Fire. And, technology was a bad thing for them. When they started putting down the brass instruments for electronic, that was a mistake.

I'm a great fan of the Christian group "The Second Chapter of Acts" They are no longer together, but they made some amazing music. Two Sisters and their brother. Almost all of the music and lyrics were written by Annie Herring, the soprano in the group. The music was arranged by her husband Buck. It is hard to lable. Not really rock, not really jazz, not typical praise music. I classify it as Classical music. Just as Brahms, Beethoven et al created (then) modern music for the church, using currently popular instruments, These people create modern music for the church using currently popular instruments. I have most of their music on cassette tapes, and really should transfer them to CD, before I wear them out. If you can find them, (Probably have to ask your local christian bookstore or music outlet to order them. Mostly on the Sparrow lable I think.) You will be uplifted if not by the lyrics, by the arrangements, and beauty of the songs. O.K, I know, I know, brevity... But what can I say? I'm a fan.

At work I like to tune in to one of my two favorite Canadian radio stations, Jack FM out of Calgary and Z99 out of Regina. Can't beat that Canadian Content!! The first album of "The Barenaked Ladies" was the best, but unfortunately it never made it to the US.

I am really loving the Jamband Music Mcene these days...Sirius Satellite Radio has a Jamband channel (or 2) if you want to check it out-among the bands are Phish, the Dave Matthews Band, the String Cheese Incident, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Moe, Martin Medeski and Woods-when you go to see a performance you expect to see INCREDIBLE musicians. They have a sound somewhere between Rock, Jazz and Country and Western (a lot of their covers are American Folk Music with a Bluegrassy twist). I grew up listening to the 70's bands just mentioned, and think these modern musicians/bands can definitely hold their own with the great musicians of all time.

These bands are not usually hugely commercial-don't choose to fit in with a "Pop Music" format so don't get much airtime on the Clear Channel Radio Monopolies. Still, they draw large crowds when they perform (125,000+ at the "It" Festival, sell out Madison Square Garden in New York in 1 hour, average large crowds and even have a Grammy Catagory now) They are great live- they play at a variey of Music Festivals across the U.S. such as "Bonaroo" , "Limestone", The "High Sierra Music Festival" and the "Telluride Bluegrass Festival" in Colorado.(I've heard of a couple in Montana and Idaho but don't know the names)

One thing I like about these bands (this scene) is that they want to make the music accessible to everyone. They refuse to cash in on sold out shows and their popularity by raising ticket prices above $35. People who love them refuse to screw over other people by scalping extra tickets at sold out shows at huge prices. Lots of people at the shows have a caring, sharing attitude and even give away tickets if they think someone waiting can't afford them.

Anyway, just wanted to get the word out about a HUGE "Underground" scene I've gotten in on......

I listen to a lot of music, and I don't even own an iPod. When my attention span is confronted with my laze, my laze usually wins out. That is why I defend records as the greatest medium. And that is not even taking sound quality into consideration, the two cannot be compared. When you throw an LP on the turntable and sit down to your computer, you probably let it play through. I like hearing the whole album. The fact that people don't is destroying music. No one could get anything done if they put a Brittney Spears record on the turntable. I would recommend everyone of these albums to anyone wanting to listen to a good album.

Home at lunch, the wife gone at Missoula, time to crank up the volume. In the 5-CD changer on random were:

Southern Culture on the Skids - "Liquored Up and Lacquered Down"
Man or Astro-man - "Live"
Meat Puppets - "II" (dang, i have something in common with pulmonade)
and the Essential Clash - Discs I and II

I have one of those elliptical trainers at home, which i work out on with the head phones. After many months, I would have to say that the Clash are about the best workout music of all time. Ted Nugent's "Tooth +Fang & Claw" comes in a distant second.

8.) AC/DC (something I share - GASP! - with The IWMK, at least from back in the day)
9.) Any classic guitar blues-based rock (Cream, old Aerosmith, the Kinks, The Rolling Stones, etc.)
10.) This slot is on a randomly-rotating basis, currently occupied by Pantera as I am feeling nostalgic. This slot has recently been filled by The White Stripes, Foo Fighters and Beethoven. Hardcore early-90's gangsta rap also periodically appears here.

I have been stuck on the newest AFI since it's release on June 6th. December Underground is the title. Not for the faint of ear, it is very loud and raucous, but like most AFI it's also the dark and dirty side of rock and roll. It may be better than their last release, Sing the Sorrow, which I thought just might be the best CD I have heard in many years. An amazingly powerful band. I am trying to arrange a road trip to see them perform live this summer, as I suspect that show could be just huge. And nothing beats the large rock and roll when it's live. Anybody have any good live concert stories to tell? Who? When? Where?

GOOD LORD!!!!!

I am just returning to my senses after last night's Hank III show. So, I gotta admit, last time I saw this guy I didn't stay for his death metal band AssJack, who plays last. Well, I stayed last night and all I can say is GOOD LORD!!!! I don't know how many of you are death metal fans but this stuff gave Slayer a run for their money. I usually don't find myself listening to this sort of thing, but I was intrigued by the lead singer bludgening himself with his microphone as Hank Williams III soaked the front rows of the mosh pit with the sweat from his hair spraying as he head banged. One poor bastard walked out of the show holding his gut...shirt soaked in blood. looked liked someone stabbed him. Ambulance showed up and got him out of there. Crazy.

I think in the future, I will enjoy the country set of a Hank III show and then get as far away as possible before the AssJack onslaught follows.

Next Up for the slayer: Earl Scruggs and Sam Bush Band at Rocky Grass in Lyons, CO July 30th. I doubt anyone will get stabbed at that show.

Copyright infringement laws prevent them from directly naming any part of their act with the Beatles, but otherwise it is an astonishingly faithful note for note covering of all of their hits, including Strawberry Fields Forever and A Day in the Life which the originals never could do on stage.

They mix their repertoire with each appearance just enough to make it interesting. If you close your eyes you would think it is the real thing. They are faithful in their impersonations down to the last detail, including the man who does Paul plays a left handed bass guitar.

They have a home base in Las Vegas if you can't catch one of their concerts. They also have a website @ thefabfour.com.

"just noise with peitistic lyrics"

Isn't that a pretty good description of most Christian popular music?

I mean, they're not exactly writing "Amazing Grace" anymore, are they?

I just saw the Black Crowes w/ Robert Randolf, and the Drive-By Truckers at Red Rocks on Sat. night. Amazing. Chris Robinson is the definition of the term ROCK STAR. Great Show...Marc Ford and Rich Robinson played great. If you get a chance to see 'em...do it!

XM Radio, mostly.....KIKC (Forsyth) for the 'local news'.

XM.....lets see #06 - the 60's, original Stones, Beach Boys, Supremes, Aretha, Brenda Lee, etc.
.......#13 - Hank's Place, traditional good-old country from the 50's, 60's, & 70's, Loretta, the Possum, Little Jimmy, Grandpa Jones, et.c.
and all the other channels, at some time during the month.....Classical, Jazz, R & B, NASCAR, all except 'Rap' or 'Hip-Hop'!


What more do we need??

Yeah.. who's CRAZY idea was it to appeal to a younger, not so stiff collered, enthusiastic group of truth seeking individuals!?

Though speaking of 'Amazing Grace' my music library does contain a smashing instrumental 'punk cover' version.

The one by the Dropkick Murphys?

I was talking about the "Jesus Is My Boyfriend" style that seems so popular, to say nothing of lyrics that are full of I's and Me's, but never an Us or a We.

"to say nothing of lyrics that are full of I's and Me's,"

I couldn't agree more!

Most of the lyrics of so called christian music have become the 7-11 self-justification varity.

They sing 7 words 11 times usually starting with "I just wanna....."

I haven't heard his new CD, but his first two were pretty thought provoking. While the first link is for Christianity Today, I haven't heard any of his music on christian radio. The second is just googled

My MP3's are all over the place... I make no apologies for my current set list:

Luciano Pavarotti: Ah! Mes amis (9 high C's!)
Pac Man Fever (not sure how that one got in)
Billy Joel
Pretty Maids
Van Halen
Matchbox 20
Men at Work
Dio
Slade
Europe
Patti Austin
Monks of Santo Domingo
Def Leppard
Bon Jovi
Eddie Rabbit
Heart
Iron Maiden
...and I think there's some Santana and Y&T mixed in there somewhere.

I am with my husband, especially since he is the one in control of loading my MP3 player. I did just listen to some older stuff the other day, Temple of the Dog and Spin Doctors. Mostly 80s hard rock though.

2006????

I'm listening to Bob Dylan's "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid Soundtrack"

I've decided it is the best record (at least top 5) that I have ever heard.

This album truely defines "my taste" in music...sure there are a few others out there, but nothing better.

I can't use it any more....too dark to see....knockin' on heaven's door.........

that long black cloud is coming down.......

good stuff.

When I drove home from Thanksgiving, I dug out a cassette I hadn't listened to for at least 10 years (I don't do cassettes any more, but my wife's car is limited in musical options). I listened to the old Todd Rundgren album, "Something/Anything" in its original doulbel LP entirety. Now there is some old classic rock that sounds great, as it is not played to death by today's FM classic rock radio. It sounded fantastic, especially the old album sides 3&4.

Now if I could only get my friggin' stereo digitizer turntable to work, I could digitize "A Wizard, A True Star"...another great Todd Rundgren album from the good ole days.

I just bought a "best of" album of Elvis Costello' early days. Reminds be of my stint as a DJ at the campus radio station. Other than that I'm pretty limited to NPR and a local station called X96 that plays bands such as Sublime, The Offspring, Kink, Ludo, Green Day, Weezer. And some older alternative stuff such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Lots of Red Hot Chile Peppers.

My wife's dad just gave us the second half of his record collection last night (around 100 albums)...I've been jamming Aretha Franklin, Beach Boys, Rod Stewart, the Band, and Rare Earth all morning.

I also picked up "California Jam 2" (double lp) and the Georgia Satellites first alblum at the record shop the other day. Cal Jam 2 has a 3 song set by Aerosmith which really shows them at their peek.

Hank III's new album is pretty dark. I'm guessing he'll be dead in 5 years at the rate he's going. Johnny Cash's America is a decent compilation I picked up from the library. I also burned Kenny Chesney's latest (Jimmy Buffet part II), and the Grateful Dead in Egypt '78.

I gotta say that there is no comparison for how vinyl sounds compared to digital. The sound of vinyl is 10 times more rich and textured compared to listening to an mp3 or a CD. So I suggest that you continue to 'spin the black circle' Milestown!
