I am a huge Sinead O'Connor fan

She has one of the most intriguing voices I have ever heard and she's not afraid to try anything with music. She's done so many styles and worked with so many artists.

I also respect her musical honesty... she does just what she wants to do and makes no apologies.

Anyway, she's one of my favorite artists that I don't see mentioned around here very often, except in ridicule.

Not too obscure, but I must say...

Iron & Wine is one of the best contemporary artists out there. "Our Endless Numbered Days" is an absolute masterpiece.

I agree! She's got a gorgeous voice and has balls to boot.

I've been listening to her greatest hits lately. Great stuff.

I will back up the Sinead O'Connor and Waterboys love.

I'm all excited because I just learned Robert Cray is coming to my town to perform. We don't get that many people where I live that I'm actually interesting in going to hear. I listened to some of his stuff last night in anticipation. I remember first hearing his music almost 20 years ago and being absolutely floored. I think he was my introduction to the blues, a genre a grew up pretty ignorant about.

I saw him perform at the Crossroads Festival in Dallas last June. That's one day I'll never forget for the rest of my life. All those legends on one stage.

Everybody ought to check out the Olympic Hopefuls. They're a fantastic kinda local band... maybe a little too pop for some but not half bad.

Bash & Pop too. The band Tommy Stinson formed after the Replacements broke up... only put out one CD and did half a tour before breaking up but that one CD is awesome.

I don't see a Velvet Underground thread in the B&C band index... I'm assuming most people know who they are though, Lou Reed, John Cale, wrote some of the greatest songs ever and influenced basically every modern band?

Right, they rule. My personal favourite is their third album which I believe was just called "VU." What Goes On, Pale Blue Eyes, Murder Mystery...

Other bands I've been listening to lately include Rage Against the Machine, Bright Eyes, Bloc Party, Interpol, Outkast, The Killers, and Alien Ant Farm. All fairly recent bands (except RATM which are obviously split up and Outkast has been around for about 10 years).

Only heard a bit of stuff by the Waterboys, but I don't mind 'em, no. "The Whole Of The Moon" is a great song . Sinead's not bad, either .

One band I've been getting into within the last year or so has been Squeeze. Don't see much talk about them here-anyone else got any thoughts on them? I really like what I'm hearing by them, too. And I will state once again that "Tempted" is really one of the coolest songs I've ever heard .

There's also all the Finn-related stuff-Crowded House and Split Enz and them that I'm loving, too...but I know quite a few people here like them as well, so... (actually, this place is one I credit in part with getting me into that music. You guys who love those artists talked about 'em enough that I got curious and kept an eye out for any songs related to them, and the rest is history. So, yeah, thanks ).

Angela
