    What are you listening to?

    Post by Tryouts on Wed Nov 04, 2015 5:06 am

    Right now I've been listening to a lot of Bon Iver. I find myself coming back to both records every so often. They're both very nostalgic feeling and there isn't a bad song on either one.


    I've also been getting into James Blake for the first time. I had heard a bit from his second album, which wasn't quite for me, but his first album is really great. Lindisfarne (I and II) is definitely the highlight of the album for me. It's pure genius.


    The new Grimes singles are really great and I can't wait for the new album. The first single, Flesh Without Blood is really pop-y, which I'm sure is jarring for some of her fans, but I think it's really catchy and fun.

    Oh jeeze I'm glad you're getting into Blake's first record, it's definitely the best. A good track that (for some reason) is included on my copy is "Enough Thunder."

    For me, it's all Kraftwerk and The Knife lately, baby.

    Ahhhhh Computer Love is so good. Definitely one of my favourite songs from Kraftwerk. The Knife is always good too, though I still haven't been able to get into Shaking The Habitual unfortunately.

    This Stereolab album is sweet. Thanks for sharing it. flower

    I'm with you there. I do like Shaking the Habitual, but I'm more of a Silent Shout guy myself.

    I found this video of Four Tet explaining how he made a couple songs from There Is Love In You from start to finish, and that inspired me to really look at that album again. He seems like such a modest guy as well



    Other than that I've been on a math rock kick for a while, mostly Don Caballero. I just love how they manage to seem laid back despite the mathy-ness.



    Also I don't know if having "Since I Left You" stuck in my head for months counts. But shout out to the Avalanches in general

    Wow, just got a chance to listen to all of this. So much talent in that band. Also the green screen is excellent

    Bruce Cockburn all day



    Mike Patton's EP with DEP is actually so good too, just let it happen. Not for you? No, it totally is.

    Can't say I'm a fan of Ol' Bruce, but that ep is killer!

    A LOT of Depeche Mode recently. It's so 'naff' as my Dad would say, that's why I love it so much.

    My friend put this up on Youtube a few years ago out of nowhere and it still blows me away every time I watch/listen to
