I appreciate you guys doing my homework for me

So - I have been fairly out of the music loop since early this year - got a new job and voila, no life. I don't even have an Ipod...just a little MP3 player that I listen to the radio on while running. I lose, I know.

I'm getting a better handle on things now so would like to have some new tunes/bands/scene to listen to when I have a long commute a few times a week - WHAT HAVE I BEEN MISSING OUT ON THESE LAST FEW MONTHS????

Who have I not heard of and should be aware of? Who is just rocking socks these days and I should be mortified to not know of yet?

Please...shame me....school me...and if it's going to be painful let me know so I can pad my ass with cotton first. Thanks blue people.

It would be nice if you could clear some space so I could send you something.

I am sad for music.

gaslight put out a new record, brandon flowers is to release one next month, but i think most of the tracks have been leaked. i think you'd really like the new stuff from the black keys. as well as new pearl jam and arcade fire, but i suspect you've caught the last 2 live recently?

congrats on the new job, btw.

I'll listen to anything to decide if I like it - I wouldn't dismiss something based on genre before I've heard it - thanks B212.

Thanks for the lists - if/when I get a chance I will try to find these...I haven't gotten any new music since.....sometime last year Is Itunes still the place to go or has that been replaced by something newer and better?

I'm so out of the loop Mia that I've only seen PJ in Buffalo earlier this year and that's it. Would have loved to catch the AF Island show but was too busy - the new job is contract till March, Is it March yet?????

I've heard nothing from the Black Keys either. So. much. to find.

Thanks again peoples!

iTunes is still a happenin' place, but I use Amazon's music store these days. Just way better experience all around. Plus, on occasion, they have amazing deals on albums. I bought the Suburbs for.. 3.99 on there? Yeah, I think that's how much it was.

Plus, Plus, they have huge sections of $5 albums.
