    I've been listening to a lot of Gotye recently. His stuff is being played on the radio a lot over here, and I for one am very happy about that.

    Somebody That I Used To Know is an amazingly good song.

    This is something that I seriously don't understand. I mean, usually I can get music. Despite my own lack of fondness for most music I can still understand how other people would like things that don't appeal to me.

    But I literally have no idea as to why Gotye is so popular or why people enjoy Somebody That I Used To Know. It's weird; uncanny, even.

    Well it uses the tune of 'Baa Baa Black Sheep' so maybe it's some kind of nostalgia thing?

    Different people have different tastes, basically. It'd be kind if lame if everyone enjoyed all the same stuff.

    Eh, I'm not much of a GSY!BE fan. I've tried, but it just doesn't click for me.

    Discovered 2 awesome new female-fronted groups/people.

    CHAINGANG are arright. The one song I linked is pretty good. They don't have much stuff I can find though. Pretty straight-up female-fronted punk tinged rock.

    Emilie Autumn is just so amazing, and is one of the most interesting people ever. Her violin-work is pretty sweet too. Dark Cabaret.

    Not just interesting. Insane, yes. But she is an amazing musician, with a godly voice. I do enjoy her electric violin work as well. The "Unlaced" part of Laced/Unlaced in particular.

    Are you kidding? I Fight Dragons is in the lineup. Don't know if they are worth seeing live, but their albums are one of my favorite things to listen to. Who doesn't love the combination of rock/pop and the old video game hardware chiptune aesthetic?

    So many favorite songs. Which one to use as an example? Aw, just throw your cursor over one of the links and click.

    Hey there, thread for musics.

    I'm gonna leave some Ghost Box stuff lying around in here. Ghost Box is a pretty specialised label, but what it specialises in is goddamn great. Almost everything they release owes a heavy influence to 70s and 80s British public information films, particularly the work of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, but also has some really rather creepy undertones and occasionally a folky twist. It's a bit like slightly twisted British library music, except not actually library music. A few things, if you like the sound of that:

    The Advisory Circle - Now Ends the Beginning

    Belbury Poly - The Geography, from The Belbury Tales, one of the best albums of the year so far if you ask me. Unforgotten Town is good too. The video to it uses bits of The Wicker Man, and the song fits that kind of atmosphere perfectly.

    Broadcast and The Focus Group - The Be Colony, technically released on Warp, but The Focus Group is one of the founders of Ghost Box, so it counts, dammit.

    Oh, and they do occasionally stray from the typical pattern with stuff like Moon Wiring Club, who makes, as he puts it, 'Edwardian video game music' using only a PS2 and a copy of Music 3000.

    And on an unrelated note, I bought this today. Look at it. Just look at it. Feast your eyes on it. I think I'm pretty much set for life as far as drum kits go now.

    p.s. F#A# is best GY!BE album, but Moya is probably their best song.

    Insane. Like, IRL. As in, she got locked in an asylum for I don't know how long, and wrote a book about it from her diary that she wrote in red crayon that she got from a nurse after convincing her that it was alright, she wasn't going to use it to kill herself.

    I'm aware, yes. But if you read up on her history it gets a bit more understandable. I actually still want to read The Asylum. It sounds... eccentric.

    You know what I just realised? She's a real-life Malkavian.

    And wow, that lineup is awful. Funeral Party is the only one on there that might be good, but I'm not sure if I'm mixing them up with another band.

Which tends to be the way of it anyway with Warped.

    Streetlight Manifesto's drummer will be playing a DHP drum kit, so I'd like to go see that, but it says something about my liking of that lineup that a drum kit is the top attraction for me.

    Well, thanks for giving them a listen anyway. Personally, I feel a little inadequate in this thread. IFD is the only band I listen to that I can reasonably expect others not to have heard of and may want to listen to. As you can see by my last.fm page, everything else fits squarely within contemporary rock and/or pop (Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, etc.) or so-called oldies, like Electric Light Orchestra, Genesis, James Taylor, and Huey Lewis. Basically, stuff that has been heard and discussed to death already, of this I am almost certain.

    All that really leaves me with is showing off one or two gems I found on ocremix.org: a website devoted to remixes of video game soundtracks. Personal favorite: a remix of "The Synapse (Hong Kong Streets)" from the PC FPS RPG Deus Ex.
    Never played a game of D&D in my life, but I still love OotS.

    Don't worry about the hipster regulars here! The more you talk about the bands you like, the more other people who like those bands will come out and go "Oh hey, they don't only talk about dirty hipster bands in that thread!"

    Also. HEY CHUMLEY. I'M BUYING TICKETS TO GO SEE GOGOL BORDELLO TOMORROW.

    They're playing 5 days after my very last final exam. MY LIFE HAS SO MANY GOOD SHOWS. Sleigh Bells next week, Gogol Bordello in May, DFA1979/USS/Silversun Pickups in July... Still sad that I missed all the 19+ shows: Die Antwoord in February, Every single Die Mannequin show for the last 2 years. Oh, and I missed Flogging Molly last November, due to lack of interest on short notice from friends, and I missed Dropkick Murphy's in February because of scheduling conflicts...
    Ooooh, but I've already seen USS twice, Metric twice, Elbow, AWOLNATION, Dinosaur Bones, the Pack AD, a handful of local hardcore bands and one ******* hardcore band from Washington DC, Iggy Pop, the Raveonettes, Best Coast, Effed Up, the Descendents, K-os, Alexisonfire, Billy Talent, the Stills, the Arkells, even seen AFI, though they sucked, as well as OFF!, though I didn't really like OFF!. I THINK THIS IS QUITE DECENT LIST OF THINGS HAVING SEEN AT AGE 17.

    Well, of the above, Iggy Pop is just mind-blowing, as are USS and Effed Up and Elbow, and so WILL GOGOL BORDELLO AND DFA1979 be.
    Descendents, Metric, and K-os are also damn good shows. The other bands are all either only decent, or I've grown past them, or were just openers that I managed to catch. Oh, also can put Rusty down on there, I caught most of their set, was not impressed.

    OH and also forgot Stereokids who were arright, and Maestro Fresh Wes, who was boss.

    It's certainly more than 99% of kids my age, and of, in my opinion, rather high quality.

    Shows? I have seven to go to over the next 20 days. Spending a month in London for the Easter holidays, and now that I'm not at university in the middle of the countryside I'm going to make the most of it, god dammit.

    Demdike Stare, Oren Ambarchi & Charlemagne Palestine, Closure In Moscow, Agalloch, Maps & Atlases, Barn Owl, and the jazz boat. The jazz boat is a boat that is full of jazz. It is a wonderful and regular occurrence in London.

    Just saw mr. Gnome at a local club as they tour the country. Really great energy and imagination. Got it all on video, too, along with a couple of awesome local bands.
    I have my own TV show featuring local musicians performing live. YouTube page with full episodes and outtake clips here.
    I also have another YouTube page with local live music clips I've filmed on my own.
