I am in a crunch for time and need some music ideas

OK so I have been pretty busy as of late with working 2 jobs all summer and now school, work and volunteering. I have not had as much time as I would like to catch up on music as of late. So I am wondering if anyone has some ideas of stuff for me to check out.

thanks...

Since you're the one who told me about digitally imported, as far as electronic stuff goes, I'd recommend some BT to you if you aren't already into him.

Also, in fulfillment of my office as resident Placebho, I'd recommend you pick up Placebo's greatest hits, which is coming out in October. Good pure rock music.

If you havent checked out The Fiery Furnaces yet, you probably should. Not sure if you'll like them, but they're at least worth knowing about. HeartlandGirl and I saw them open for The Shins in May. Their latest album, 'Blueberry Boat' has gotten some majorly good reviews (see Pitchfork). I'm still not sure if I prefer 'Blueberry Boat' or their first album, 'Gallowsbird's Bark', but they're both very good. Their first is a bit more standard songwriting, their most recent has very long songs that pretty much include 3 to 4 songs/melodies in each. Very interesting stuff.

I'll agree with HeartlandGirl about BT along the electronic music lines, and I'll also recommend DJ Tiesto (I'm sure she will too). I've really been digging him lately.

I also better agree about Placebo, or I'll get in major trouble. Seriously though, their most recent album 'Sleeping With Ghosts' was amazing. The Greatest Hits CD should be a good bet too.

Here are some other bands/albums I've been digging lately that I think you may like:

Dismemberment Plan - 'Emergency & I' & 'Change'
Cursive - 'The Ugly Organ'
Cooper Temple Clause - 'Kick Up the Fire, And Let the Flames Break Loose'
Bjork - 'Greatest Hits' & 'Medulla'
The Cure - 'The Cure' & 'Disintegration'
Beta Band - 'Heroes to Zeroes'
M83 - 'Dead Cities, Red Seas, & Lost Ghosts'

skeek what did you do. i can never access jack on that program. I am guessing its due to router configurations which i never bother messing with....
