  • What are you listening to?

    I'm constantly looking for new music, digging through dirty piles of records (at the only two music stores around me that actually sell records), and searching the internet for anything that is pleasant to my ears. So I thought it would be cool if we had a thread to post what we are currently listening to an enjoying.

    For me, recently snagged..

    The Best of Vangelis
    Frank Sinatra - Watertown
    Frankie Knuckles - Tears
    some 12" singles off Chicago Trax label
    DJ Sneak - Fabric 62
    Ministry - the 12" Singles Collection
    Bill Evans - The Village Vanguard Sessions
    DJ-Kicks - The Exclusives

    I highly recommend the DJ Kicks album to anyone looking into that new "deep house" thing that's going on.

        Today, listening to a new song I started writing on Monday.

        Otherwise, I have about 10k of songs on iTunes and have made a playlist that plays any songs I haven't listened to in four years or so. Sometimes it's interesting, sometimes not. This was yesterday's afternoon naptime playlist:


        Coleman Hawkins -- Make Believe
        Chet Baker -- I Get Along Without You Very Well
        Chet Baker -- Ponder
        Chet Baker -- My Buddy
        Chet Baker -- A Night On Bop Mountain
        Chet Baker -- This Is Always
        Duke Ellington -- Hot Feet
        Eddie Cantor -- Margie
        Feist -- Lonely Lonely
        Feist -- L'Amour Ne Dure Pas Toujours
        Rosco Gordon -- Booted
        Bing Crosby -- Where the Blue of the Night (Meets the Gold of the Day) [1948 Single Version]
        Bill Evans Trio -- Blue in Green
        Gus Elen -- Arf a Pint of Ale
        Chan Romero -- The Hippy Hippy Shake
        The Golden Gate Quartet -- Daniel Saw The Stone
        Gus Elen -- It's a Great Big Shame
        Blossom Dearie -- I Won't Dance
        Susannah McCorkle -- I'll Take Romance
        North Alley -- Walking Down the Street
        North Alley -- Freddie Meets His Inner Flock
        Hi Mom!

            I'll just put down a handful of serious recommendations from yours truly.

            Alasnoaxis - House Plant
            Jakob Bro - Balladeering
            Jakob Buchanan - I Land In The Green Land
            Helge Lien - Natsukashii
            Christian Scott - Yesterday you said Tomorrow


            Lots of bloody interesting things stirring in jazz right now.

              Been pulling out classical music LPs recently. Went on a Stravinsky binge, pulled out pile of "contemporary" chamber music issued on Nonesuch in the early 70s from composers like Elliot Carter, Ruth Crawford Seeger, Milton Babbitt, etc.



              and right now as I type I'm amidst a Berlioz orgy :thu:

              I cheated a bit and snuck in the first two Hawkwind LPs this morning :rawk:



              In the car, I've been spinning a few of the Ethiopiques CDs.

                  I'am hardly listening to anything lately. Either I'm in a rut or just don't have the patience or time for much these days. I did purposely get the Franck albums to try and relax while doin other things.

                            lately?

                            been really into a label from the Ukraine called 'Kvitnu', all their artists/releases are fantastic. Com Truise over and over, really digging his stuff the past couple months. various Skinny Puppy related projects, as always. Autechre, as always ('Oversteps' and 'Move of Ten' in the past few weeks). broke out some Legendary Pink Dots the other day, been a while since i've listened to them (unfortunately).

                            probably some other stuff that i'm forgetting...
