Abs n Beans n Sputnik n anybody else who likes kind of the same stuff that I do, I've been out of the loop for a while, so if you could rec some of the best stuff you've heard in last 9 months or so, I'd be chuffed. That's right, I was in my second gestation. Didn't expect it so soon.
Hmmmm. Not sure we really have the same tastes, but check my post history in this thread. I don't know what you already know and not so here's a brief list of bands I've been listening to recently that have released something recently:
(italian funk/'70es movie soundtrack band)
(Swedish crust band)
(intense German crust or metal or whatever band)
(black metal. If you like Wolves in the Throne Room you'll like thantifaxath)
-Ree Yees (VERY noisy drum duo that sounds like Lightning Bolt: http://www.mediafire.com/?lt9z2c8ymqzt1z5
-Bass Drum of Death
(excellent garage duo)
-Hella released a new album (Tripper
), it sounds like Hold your Horse Is but I personally don't like it as much, but I still think it's very good and worth a listen. I have an irrational love for anything Zach Hill or Spencer Seim, though...
-And speaking of Spencer Seim, he's involved in some new projects: Crock
(although I think Eat your Heart Out is the only good track on the album) and Amaranth
. These are pretty pop rock so you might like them.
-Secret Chiefs 3 are touring like mad and have released two 7 inches (click
and click again
). The latter two sound like gooseberry fool because they have only been released on vinyl, there's no proper digital version anywhere. Also a new awesome as yet unreleased track called Tistriya
-Jungle Brothers released some new unedited master tapes or something from the '90es and they kick ass: http://www.theunheardmusic.org/2011/12/ ... christmas/
-Also hip hop, even though they're pretty unique: Death Grips
-Soul Jazz just put out two nice compilations that I instantly bought based on the samples and did not regret one bit: Bossa Jazz
and Black Caribs of Belize
-Almost forgot, Black Joe Lewis & Honeybears released a new album. I prefer their first one but this one's also good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxlBzG6avHY
Southern blues funk garage.
But mostly I take my time to listen to all the old stuff I keep discovering.
