What are you listening to..?

Just for fun. Always seemed to do quite well in the past.

So, what artists, albums, songs is everyone listening to as of late?

Currently:

Dream Theater "Black Clouds & Silver Linings"
Heaven & Hell "The Devil You Know"
Mastodon "Crack The Skye"
Fleetwood Mac "Live In Boston"
IKO "I Am Zero"

Always been a huge audio/ music junkie... so I like a lot of variety.

I'm a guitarist, so anytime you ask me what I'm listening to, you're likely to get a list of guitar-oriented stuff that has a touch of old-school to it.

The Elms are a band out of Indiana that are straight forward - old-school - bare bones - rock & roll.

Andy Timmons... Funky... groovish... metalish... instrumental rock

Today, I'm listening to Kraan, a German band from the 70's. The disc is Andy Nogger (from 1974). Kraan defies labels; I have seen them called Krautrock, Jazz-rock, progressive, fusion, but none of them fit. It's more power-pop-ish than anything, but the band draws influences from a wide range. Their bass player is outstanding.

Here's a sample... the song is Nam Nam... there is a smokin' sax solo :AOK

Loving it JustJeff. Good Stuff.

Also, when it comes to guitars.. I've been a big fan of "Buckethead." Does countless projects with other musicians. Techno. Rock. Easy-Listening. Alt. You name it.

His Newest song:

Regardless of the MJ tribute. Great tune.

Every so often I go retro and pore through my old stuff and give it a whirl. Right now that means Husker Du, Meat Puppets, Dinosaur Jr, and Pavement.

I live in a musical vacuum, though, so I like this kind of thread that can give me new ideas (for when I return from reminiscing). Keep it up.

Hatebreed is a little heavy at times... perfect for when I want to punch someones head in. :roll:

That's good stuff Greenie, far removed from what I am used to from Buckethead.

Buckethead fans (and any shred fans et al),

You MUST have a look at Guitars SUCK. It's a twenty minute tribute to guitarists that are not very well known in mainstream music culture.

Here's a link... Guitars SUCK

Gonçalo Pereira is a Portuguese guitarist who is one of the first featured players - in the second or third clip, he does some outrageously melodic tapping/soloing. The Buckethead clips start a clip or two later. Guthrie Govan, blazes some country stuff in one clip (not his usual style), Other players include Shawn Lane, Dave Martone, Rusty Cooley Neil Zaza and Bumblefoot (a friend who I met through a forum is in that clip on rhythm guitar).

Overall, it is a little too shreddy for my taste, but I definitely appreciate the talent. I still watch it about four or five times a year.

Jeff, all that does is tell me that no matter how good I get at guitar, I'll never be famous. :wink:

I love to play, but I'm pretty laid back with it at this point. As an undergrad I was all about needing to play fast and furious, which I can't say I ever mastered. Now I'm all about being able to fingerpick a good rhythym and melody, which I can't say I've mastered. :wink:
