Cool A Small Intro

I do not like introductions very much but allow myself to give you a small idea of who I am!

My name is Finn, I am 17, and I am from Melbourne, Australia. Just like everyone, I have been listening to music for all my life, but in the past year I have really taken this interest to a new level. I listen to 3+ albums a day now, depending on how much time I have. I'm always interested in finding new music, and occasionally I find something incredible. If I had to numb my favourite albums down to three picks, they would be Kind of Blue by Miles Davis, Endtroducing... by DJ Shadow and Loveless by My Bloody Valentine (oh, and perhaps Pink Moon by Nick Drake).

I am very much more inclined towards the genres of hip hop, alt. rock, electronica, experimental (all kinds), art rock, trip hop, bossa nova and jazz.

Despite my interest in music, I want to be a film director/screenwriter in the future, and also pursue film constantly. My favourite film is La Dolce Vita.

That was a lot longer than I expected. Hello to all!

Welcome to MB, Finn. I hope your stay leads to a wide swathe of new music! Have you listened to anything else from Miles?

Yeah I have! Not too much though. I've listened to In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew, both of which I loved (IASW more notably than BB though). Any recommendations?

Anything of his that's live is brilliant, and I really love On The Corner, though I find the drumming to be a bit monotonous. He's one of those rare artists that is almost always good, so you can hardly go wrong with any album of his.
