I love this thread. You guys have introduced me to some really great new music lately! In particular, I would like to endorse:

Sun Comes Up Again by I Am Arrows
- Nice Try
- Far Enough Away
- So Long Ago
- No Wonder

Queen of Denmark by John Grant
- Where Dreams Go to Die
- Sigourney Weaver
- Silver Platter Club
- Queen of Denmark

Wasted in Jackson by Lauren Pritchard
- Stuck
- Not the Drinking
- I Hope it's You
- Painkillers
- Hanging Up

I would like to recommend an album called The Valley by a band of sisters named Eisley.



In particular check out:
- The Valley
- Watch it Die
- Sad
- Oxygen Mask
- Ambulance
- Better Love


.... Looking back through the posts it seems that all the albums I liked best were recommended by JezB, so I guess we must have similar tastes.

Wow...I have been really missing George since I saw that show...

..so today I have been listening to....



I love Rain. I have seen them a couple of times when they have played Toronto. They do terrific renditions of The Beatles' tunes and I usually cringe at Beatles covers. It just a great night out listening to some to the best tunes ever written. And the guy who does George does a great job on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".
Beady Eye - The Beat Goes On

I used to be a huge Oasis fan back in the day...but fell off the Oasis wagon over 10 years ago....I knew the band split up a couple of years ago, but only learned yesterday that both Gallagher brothers have new projects going on. Well, I sure did have my doubts about a "Noel-less Oasis", but I just cannot stop listening to this track by Liam's band Beady Eye. (What an awful name for a band. *laughs*) I also cannot believe that after more than a decade of me paying no attention, that both Gallagher brothers look exactly the same as they did in 1995. *laughs*
I don't know if I would say it's instantly forgettable....

While it didn't knock me out, as much of Noel's early stuff did, I found it much more listenable than anything I'd heard from Oasis in the past ten years.

It's okay. He can do better. But I'm encouraged...if only because I have been secretly wishing for a Noel Gallagher solo album since 1996 or so. Wink
I got the new Lindsey Buckingham album today, and there is a song on there called End of Time that is seriously knocking my head off. I have been listening to it incessantly all day on and off.

I am seeing Lindsey in about 3 weeks and I honestly have not been so excited about a concert in several years.

I CANNOT WAIT!!

I can't believe that the one and only time I've seen Lindsey Buckingham live was over 30 years ago with Fleetwood Mac. Oy. *laughs*

So excited to see him, and End of Time is blowing my head off!!
Well here we go...

The Pajama Club:- You may have heard of this new trio...

The Cold Chisel Remasters Catalogue:- Or to be more precise their studio albums 1978-1984. The first album was a revelation.

Icehouse - White Heat:- God this is so good. A genuine greatest hits collection.

Judas Priest - Single Cuts:- Look, I do love me metal. Old school, that is.

101 Country Classics:- No I'm not being funny or ironic. I just love these songs and I surprised myself how many I knew very well. A so-called guilty pleasure, if you'd feel guilty about this sort of thing which I don't.
Mostly listening to plenty of regional Texas bands of the pop/rock variety :

The Blurries - Paper Cuts
top notch, jangly 12 string guitar goodness

Wiretree - Make Up
Austin indie/power pop with a hint of alt-country

Leatherbag - Yellow Television LP, Patience EP
really great Austin based songwriter - Elvis Costello meets Jonathan Richman and Tom Petty

Quiet Company - We Are All Where We Belong
Austin based band recently signed to Grooveshark - think Ben Folds Five and Guster meets Death Cab for Cutie

Wilco were fab Smiler

As a last-minute effort to get even a little bit familiar with their stuff I had the new album on repeat on Spotify the morning of the gig, while doing AAARRGH housework - yet on the night they were absolutely spellbinding. A testament to the band/musicianship/songwriting craft/performance that one can be completely captivated by the performance while not being familiar with the material.

Great audience too - 99% devotees and a demographic reassuringly similar to Finn gigs, i.e. my age plus or minus 10 years Big Grin

Expecting my wonderful postlady to deliver The Whole Love this morning Smiler
