Page 1 of What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)
Stickied in Music Forum
Thought I`d put some album recommendations out there, after just scanning what I`ve been listening to the last few months through last.fm.
Arcade Fire- The Suburbs (started thread on that so won`t say anything else here)
Tracks to check out: We Used To Talk, The Suburbs, Month of May
Phoenix- Wolfgang Amadeus Bit of dancey indie mix, gutted I didn`t see them at Glastonbury, but Snoop Dogg was on and I made the judgement that Phoenix would probably be better in a normal gig in the future whereas Snoop Dogg would be awesome on the Pyramid stage (I was right ;) )
Tracks to check out: 1901, Liztomania, Fences
Broken Bells- Broken Bells It`s a side project from the lead singer of The Shins and Dangermouse. Really good album, I liked a few songs at first but couldn`t get into the album overall, but after giving it a few tries got really into it.
Track to check out: The High Road, Ghost Inside, Vaporize
Yeasayer- Odd Blood- Broklyn Band that`s again got a bit of a dancey feel to some tracks and are a bit hard to get into (actually thinks some people will really be put off by the first track and possibly Ambling Alp on first here) but definately give Ambling Alp a few listens as it`s one of those songs that gets stuck in your head.
Tracks to check out: Ambling Alp, O.N.E., Madder Road
Band of Skulls- Baby Darling Doll Face Honey- UK band that sound very similar to White Stripes but are really good, another that I haven`t managed to see live yet, but would imagine are very good.
Tracks to check out: Death By Diamonds And Pearls, I Know What I Am, Patterns
The Dead Weather- Sea Of Cowards Worth checking out even if you didn`t like the first album, as bit like The Raconteurs who`s second album was much better after they`ve "found their sound." It`s a bit dark and grungy but I really like it.
Tracks to check out: Blue Blood Blues, Die By The Drop, Hustle and Cuss
Two Door Cinema Club- Two Door Cinema Club Really they have all the makings of a band I shouldn`t really like, but they do have some really good songs. Quite chart friendly, but have seen quite a few people say that they are a band they like but don`t know why.
Tracks to check out: Undercover Martyn, Something Good Can Work, I Can Talk
I got quite a few random recommendations for good music on here over the years, so thought may aswell give a bit of plug to some slightly off mainstream bands. :D
Monster Magnet, various albums as seeing them in a couple of months, haven`t seen them live in about 10 years !
my mate just sent me this
which sounds good if you like your hardcore/punk/metal, and in return I sent him this, which is brilliant
Teenage Bottlerocket "Bigger Than Kiss"
which a friend of a friend suggested, more pop-punk/metal :)

I`m not very musically adventurous but really enjoying the new Iron Maiden album, The Final Frontier.
I`m currently enjoying the fantastic ZTT remastering of Propaganda`s A Secret Wish album...
The new Rick Ross album is pretty good if it is your kind of music.
