Call me Crazy. Subnet's band list beyond U2

Ok guys so I was thinking of putting together a list of bands I've been listening to lately. I don't really categorize music so I'm open to quite a bit out there. Here's just a taste:

PAPA
The Colourist
Cold War Kids
St Lucia
The National
San Cisco
Family of the Year
Dan Croll
The Neighbourhood
Magic Man
Sea Wolf
Blondfire
Two Door Cinema Club

It's funny how U2 have slowly made their way back to the top of my list since I got a fast internet connection (more recently than you would believe). I just mentally ignore pretty much everything post-2000, and it's sweet.

Ok, so aside from that:

The National
Radiohead
Arcade Fire
Orbital
Sleater-Kinney
Massive Attack
(some) early Van Morrison

Very few artists that I care enough about to pursue even one whole album. I mean, I have 'listened to', and enjoyed, both David Bowie and Patti Smith in the last year too, but we're talking about exactly two records and they don't get played that often... so I'd feel a bit of a hack claiming to be a fan.

Here's what I've been digging:

Mastodon
Red Fang
Spirit Family Reunion
Clutch
Hot Leg
Christian Mistress
Harry Nilsson

A rather metal phase, which makes the Spirit Family Reunion & Harry Nilsson sound very refreshing.

That's a rather dynamic mix from hillbilly to metal.


Here's a track from Magic Man:
http://soundcloud.com/magicmansounds...an-nova-scotia

And a track from The Colourist remixed by Magic Man:
http://soundcloud.com/thecolourist/t...-yes-yes-magic

I'm on this analog synth trip probably cuz I appreciate the big beats of the 80s and early 90s

I didn't know they had a new album coming out - thank you!

I saw them open up for the Cocteau Twins at the Wiltern in LA way back in 1990. Sure my mind may have been under some "strange" influences - but they were mesmerizing live.
