Title: Describe Your Jam
Post by: eschaton47 on December 22, 2010, 09:17:05 AM
Lately I have been listening to the two albums by Bottomless Pit, the group the surviving members of Silkworm formed after their drummer was killed.  Women's 'Public Strain' and James Blake's forthcoming full-length.  Jason Trahan sent me a huge box of Urbo Sleeks CDs, so I've been having daily listenings to 'Near the Water.'  Vince Guraldi 'Charlie Brown Christmas' and some Bill Callahan/Smog.

I just watched "The Town". (Great movie.) The song at the end is beautiful. "Jolene" by Ray LaMontagne. First thing I've heard by him that really grabbed me. Gorgeous.

That movie looks good.  It probably could have been helped by a more compelling title.

I've been listening to Horslips a lot lately.

As much as they've been compared to Jethro Tull, I really like their songcraft. Even at the point when they started becoming more commercial (Aliens in particular, not as much on The Man Who Built America, though that title cut I like).

And on "Dearg Doom", the collection of riffs from Johnny Fean are solid IMO.

Philippe!

Aside from their "hits", there are some Thin Lizzy songs I like.

You might get one karma point from Dallas Griffith for your acknowledgement of Peter Gabriel.

I'll PM you with the "what's going on" shizzle. Which would have nothing to do with Marvin Gaye.

I have been listening to the new PJ Harvey a lot.  The best thing I've heard besides that is this gal who sounds kinda like PJ Harvey called Anna Calvi.  Her record is pretty awesome.

I'm also digging the Anna Calvi. And the PJ Harvey. She continues to impress me with the width of her musical range and her fearlessness to release new-sounding things. Admittedly, though, I still like "Dry" the most.

Also been jamming to:

Hoobastank
Paramore
Staind
Blink 182
Justin Beiber
Jonas Brothers (can't believe they didn't win an Oscar for their 3-D film)
Miley Cyrus
Carrie Underwood
Snooki
J Wow
Chris Brown (dude can sing AND kick a girl's ass - how cool is that?)
Seether
Selena Gomez (I don't actually listen to the CD. I just stare at the cover. With one hand.)
Garth Brooks
Demi Levato
Rebecca Black (I like Fridays too)
Whitney Houston
Taylor Hickman

And a bunch of freedom songs that they play on the evening news. I don't understand the lyrics - they're in Libyan - but the singers seem very passionate!

And of course the new Britney Spears - how did we survive so long without her?

Gotta go. "Glee" is coming on.

Oh yeah...almost forgot to mention...dude on eBay sold me over 100 Creed bootleg concert CDs for only $2,000.00. So if you're in the mood to jam to some Creed - and let's be serious: how could you not be? - come on over.

Bring chips.

There is a band that is a Ween cover band, oddly enough here in this small city with a population of 30,000. The name of the band is Code Brown, and they are very committed to the material.

Richard Lloyd-The Radiant Monkey


Lloyd does three tracks of Strat straight into amps, as well as bass. Chris Purdy is dialed-in on drums, save a guest appearance by TV drummer Billy Ficca on "Kalpa Tree".
