Need some ideas...

YOO

I am having trouble getting new ideas for some new music to listen to.

I'm a huge RH fan, U2 fan, PJ fan.. arcade fire, Interpol, Smiths, pixies, Hip, Franz F, REM, Stereolab, muse, neil young, Zeppelin, Beck, Weezer, Tool, Pumpkins, etc..

anyways..

What are some new albums (or even some great old ones) that you guys can recommend for me? I am having serious cravings for some new thought provoking, and headwobbling music

thanks!

Placebo. Seriously. Go out and get Once More With Feeling: THe Singles 1996-2004. Now. Run, don't walk.

And was the PJ Pearl Jam or PJ Harvey? Either way, you should listen to both.

PJ Harvey... hard to describe really. Album by album a bit different. She's got a very weathered voice, confessional and biting lyrics, and the music ranges from raw grungy rock to trip-hop-esque depending. Her most important album is probably Rid of Me, her most well-known song ("Down by the Water") is on To Bring You My Love, and her most accessible is easily Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea. Stories has a duet with Thom Yorke which is just chilling, a good place to start since you're a RH fan methinks.

I will continue to shamelessly plug this until someone takes a flyer on it.

Brian Jonestown Massacre, Tepid Pepermint Wonderland. Very trippy, neo psycho shoegazey kind of music but any kind of catchall phrase doesn't do it justice. Peter Hayes of BRMC is a former member, even directly nicked that "she's so ha-ha high" verse from BJM's "If love is the drug".

Echo, Baby!

I may have missed a post, but you've got to check out Echo & the Bunnymen.

The old stuff is awesome, but amazingly the newer stuff is really good too.

You won't regret any time spent listening to them.

If you are a fearless downloader, which I am not, I believe you can sample plenty from their website. Come one! Come all! Sample the Kool Aid, drink til your cup runneth over!! You won't even miss your old life!

I'm not much of a downloader (really slow dialup is part of the reason), but I'll be quite willing to buy a cd or two once I finish moving (too much crap to move already!).

I actually like buying a cd to check out new music anyway. It makes me more apt to really give the album a thorough listen (since I paid for it ). And I have a thing about wanting to financially support the bands/artists I listen to.

So your shameless BJM promotion has worked on me!

...now, be a good poster and go check out my shameless promotion of my favourite band....
