In my early teens I wad a huge fan of bands such as Good Charlotte, Linkin Park, Killradio, Sum 41 and Billy Talent. The pivotal point for me was, I think, when I was introduced to Metric. That was when I "allowed" myself to listen to things that weren't all rock / pop punk, as lame as that sounds. Then came the Unicorns.. and I was instantly enthralled with twee and indie pop and the like. and it was only about a year ago that I got into more folksy things, such as Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhart etc. Now I'm into artist like Final Fantasy, Animal Collective, Ohbijou (!), Seabear, Beirut and The Acorn. I've become a pretty big CanCon whore too,
I'm not so much into Metric anymore, though, they've lost their appeal for some reason. Maybe I'll re-introduce myself, it's been ages since I've listened to them. I think the only band I still listen to from my earlier "musical stage" is Death From above 1979. They always have, and always will get me in the mood ()
did they die in a dry-hump fire, years before me were born?
