Smile Passionate For Music!

I Love so many genres and time periods; particularly enjoy artists who either defy categorization, or mix-it-up. Will list some favorite bands (currently!)

The Strokes/Jet/Mando Diao
K. Flay
The Blue Stones
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Razorlight/The Kooks
Billy Boy On Poison
Social Distortion
Catherine Wheel
The Charlatans (UK)

I listen to current music, too and am always on the lookout for new stuff (for the most part, lately, I usually end up listening to British or Canadian bands). I also like discovering music I either wasn't aware of, or around for. I usually can't listen to any particular band for over several years, with the exceptions of INXS and Oasis, who I can still return to, just less excessively.

Particularly love British.

Welcome! I'm hip to Garbage, The Strokes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, INXS and Oasis. Are you into any hip-hop / rap music?

Smile Hip-Hop/alt/rock

Not too well-versed in hip-hop, but I do like some crossover stuff. Tom Morello (Audioslave and Rage Against The Machine)-Exceptional guitarist. RAGM is too angry for me; like Audioslave better. TM put out a new release a couple months' ago "Atlas Underground"and there's some rap artists on it.

Also, Mike Shinoda's new release might interest you: "Post Traumatic", since he's part rapper and singer of Linkin Park. This is his solo working through his grief over Chester Bennington (RIP) and it's some outstanding accoomplishment.

From hearing MS song "Make It Up As I Go" w/K. Flay I purch. her "Everywhere Is Somewhere" CD. She's genre-defying (and I like that). Since you like Garbage, too, I think you'd definitely like her. One reviewer described as If Garbage, Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) and Lorde had a baby, it would be K. Flay! and I think that's as good as description as any, b/c she really is unlike anyone before her!

Since you like Oasis, I hadn't listened to their last release all that much and have just pulled it out again. Dig Out Your Soul. I'm enjoying all over again.
While they called it their most psychedelic, I really think it's more of their most rockin' record, with just 2 songs really sounding psych. When I think of psych., in today's music, I think of Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Black Angels (not a particular fan; I don't much like psycheldic).

I've also currently been into Catherine Wheel (90s throwback). They were sometimes pegged as "shoegaze" but not really. I don't like shoegaze, but I do like them. I've also been big into Kasabian, Razorlight (esp. "Olympus Sleeping" new October '18) and Metric (esp. newest "Art of Doubt") and Blue Stones (Black Holes..Solid Ground) over last couple of months. Hope some of this info's helpful....I came here to discuss and share info!

I've seen you posting about Kasabian a bit. What's your favorite album by them? I've never heard them before.

Welcome to MB!

Used to listen to some Garbage as a kid, don't really remember a thing about them though. Maybe I should try listening to them again.
