Is that a stab at the White Stripes? 'Cause if it is, I will fight you.

I agree though, unless the effect is so awesomely mesmerizing that it can totally replace a story.

Also, even worse are videos that just depict the band playing. The Strokes do that mostly, unfortunately.

Sounds like U2 :. fail.

Aesop Rock. Abstract hip-hop, most incredible lyrics ever.
I've got his new album "None Shall Pass", and have listened to it three times in a row now, liking it more each time. Also, it has a song called "Bring back Pluto", which is reason enough to like him in my eyes.

Sufjan Stevens.

I like "Chicago", "Decatur", "Black Hawk War", "Casimir Pulaski Day", and "For the Widows in Paradise, the Fatherless in Ypsilanti".

Oh, and "The 50 States", something I've only found on live bootleg.

The iRussia Forward film clip was pretty cool. My favorite film clip of all time is E-Talking by Soulwax . Favorite song is probably buy me a pony by Spiderbait.

NOOOO! He was mine. However, I will add two more recomendations: "The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is Out to Get Us" and "John Wayne Gacy, Jr."

Also, you got the title wrong of one of those. actually "The Black Hawk War, or, How to Demolish an Entire Civilization and Still Feel Good About Yourself In the Morning, or, We Apologize for the Inconvenience But You're Going to Have to Leave Now, or, "I Have Fought the Big Knives...""

I love his song names.

Yeah, the latter is a great song. Creepy, but good. The former, I don't know if I know enough about the song to comment.

I know. I was just too lazy to write it out. :P

Yes. And they don't annoy me like the overblown titles of Fall Out Boy or Panic! At The Disco.

You know, I'd quite like the FOB/PATD song titles, if it wasn't for the fact that all they do is see some sentence they like in a book or movie, and then take it for themselves ("The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press-Coverage" is taken word for word from Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk for example)

I recommend Pete Philly and Perquisite. They are so awesome.

Grateful is my favourite song by them, but they have others, such as Insomnia (ever since I saw the video for that one I was hooked), Relieved (slightly different version than the one on the album), Mellow and they have a lot of songs from their second album on their myspace. So check them out!

It seems like everyone is posting what they've posted before - so I'll put someone I've talked about before as well. He goes by the name of Nujabes, and if you watch Samurai Champloo you might recognize him as doing some of the music for it. He's a DJ that mixes up Hip-Hop and Jazz, to some wowing effects, and for a sample of some of his music, look here. Everyone else has the bands I would've listed...

Pelican, "City of Echoes

I've seen labels like 'doom' and 'sludge' used to describe this band, but their latest album, at least, doesn't fit either bill. Uplifting instrumental music with a slight metal influence. Very easy to listen to even if you don't particularily like heavy music.

Funny you mention this artist. I don't know them, but right before your post I also posted a (very awesome by the way) mix of hip hop and jazz.

Well, shit. This is pretty damn good, and I'm guessing the combo is Perquisite :) Gonna have to find some more later, thanks for the group!

And Nujabes mainly does the beats and such, but the myspace link I had back there contains some of his best/my favorites. Aruarian Dance for no vocals, Lady Brown with.

Because i'm such an amazingly biased person on techno and anime. I will say Dj Sharpnel. And if you horridly despise him, well just fucking boo - hoo :lol:

In all seriousness, this guy just puts everything in to his music, even risking sounding too much of anything.

Let him be overplayed, let him be in any fashion dissed, cause i have *yet* to see someone top that fucking creativity, heart, and soul. Let him wane in power, i'll still listen to one of his 20+ albums, or one of his 300+ songs, that make me dream dreams. ^^;

I honestly wasn't going to, but since you checked out mine, I checked out yours :P This Nujabes guy is pretty cool as well. I like Luv Sic Shing02. Who's the MC, though?

I now realise I might've gotten the wrong myspace. I went to Nujabe's wikipedia entry and clicked the link for his myspace that was on the bottom, which is different from the one in the post above.

But thanks!

Technically he's Nujabes01, so Shing02 is a different person from Japan that probably does the MCing. Nujabes doesn't actually speak at all on his tracks (probably because he's not a good MC/doesn't know English), just focusing on the sampling.

well, if you're not listening to the beatles by now, you're messing your life up. Other than that, i'd say. . . . Neutral Milk Hotel has been my favorite band to listen to of the last year, even though they have only had 2 CD's and broke up 8 years ago. Either them or sonic youth.

Anyway, Pete Philly and Perquisite: their next album comes out on Monday. It's going to be awesome. If you want I can put it on rapidshare, together with their first album.

I had never heard of Steve Burns before (even with respect to Blues Clues). Do most of his songs have that Industrial/Electronic element to them?

Just the ones I posted. Largely, most of them are very quiet, folksey blues-rock, but most have a little bit of electronica, since he does everything himself.

From the new album!

Steve Burns - Lords of Cobble Hill <--- Excellent, quiet.

Steve Burns - The Unbeliever <-- Slightly more rocky

Now, I have both of his albums and all of his music. I will be happy to send people mp3s, but I urge you, if you like them, to buy the albums. Support this man.

Steve Burns - Henry Krinkle's Lament (only a snippet of the song)

He has a lot of nerdy songs, too. like Superstrings and Troposphere.

Of course he is, he does geeky songs.

Huh? Go to "The Albums", and scroll down to where it has a picture of the country you're from, and pick a site to buy it from.

The Velvet Underground. Sweet Jane, Heroin, New Age, and Pale Blue Eyes are good starter songs.
