I have been listening to a lot of indie music lately but I recently fell in love with Dan Mangan and Elemint
I've been on a Deep Purple concert last week and absolutely fell in love with the band. I've been listening to their older, classic albums such as In Rock, Machine Head, Made in Japan and Perfect Strangers.
Other than that I listen to metal mostly; Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, that sorta jazz.
After all the mentions on IGN podcasts I just picked up Tech N9ne "Everready" and have been really liking that, I still switch it up in the afternoon commute for a mix disc of Me First and the Gimme Gimmes 80s songs, show tunes, and random other punk covers. This very moment my kids for some reason are listening to a dance class CD with Beyonce's "Halo" song which is what reminded me to check Giant Bomb. I was imagining this song playing over a ballet interpretation of a Halo game with Master Chief doing spins and leapswith a blaster while badly costumed Grunts and Elites get shot down each time he comes out of a spin or leap and above him is a woman in a Cortana costume spinning and kicking in a hula hoop suspended from the ceiling like in a Vegas show. This thread topic couldn't have appeared on the front page at any better a time.
Big Sir's new album! It's a trip-hop duo composed of Lisa Papineau and Juan Alderete (the bass legend of Racer X and Mars Volta fame).
Best song in this thread. Veckatimest is the most hauntingly beautiful and mysterious album I've ever heard, and has been in constant rotation over here since I discovered it.
Just got my hands on the Hanna soundtrack. I'd say I'm surprised people didn't praise it more because it's so much better than Daft Punk's Tron Legacy score but then expecting North Americans to know who The Chemical Brothers are was always going to be a step too far.
