    New Music

    Anyone picked up any good new music lately?

    Went on a bit of a tear lately on allofmp3.com and snagged the following:

    - Arctic Monkeys- these guys are gonna be hot sh1t this summer, I can already tell after a few listens through the album. they're just regular dudes singing about regular things rather than the whiny woe-is-our-world stuff you're hearing from a lot of their counterparts these days
    - DJ Muggs vs GZA "Grandmaster"- the Cypress Hill DJ paired with GZA from the Wu, interesting stuff because the production is completely unique and totally different from what you'd expect if you've heard Liquid Swords.
    - Wu-Tang Meets Indie Culture- another random matchup that works. a bunch of raps by underground-type guys, paired with Wu (Dreddie Kruger) beats. This one's gonna get heavy play in the ol' Ipod.
    - MF Doom and Danger Mouse "Danger Doom"- this album is inspired by Adult Swim from the Cartoon Network. I don't watch that very often so I'm missing out on some of the references but it's catchy as hell, and I wanted to see what Danger was getting into after the Grey Album
    - Thievery Corp "Cosmic Game"- Saw these guys spin at their club in DC last weekend, and finally got around to getting one of their albums. It's pretty funky, down-tempo kind of stuff. Good background music for when you have people over for a couple of cocktails, grown-up style (not that I do that too often, but hey)

    I'm looking fwd to the Curious George sdtk by Jack Johnson, as well as Idlewild by Outkast. Anything else on the horizon people are anticipating?

    I'm loving the Arctic Monkeys as well. I got a CD of their's from their record company a month or so ago and I've been playing it a lot. I'm looking foward to the actual album. The CD I got has mostly demos.

    I got the new Strokes cd the other day. I really hated their first one because the guy sounded like he was singing into a megaphone, but this one is really good. I recommend it.

    Love the Arctic Monkeys. "Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweethearts" is a cool tune.

    I too am looking forward to the new Jack Johnson...he covered "We're Going To Be Friends", by the White Stripes, which is one of my favorite tunes.

    I've enjoyed DJ Muggs vs. GZA so far (my fav. tracks are Exploitation of Mistakes, All in Together Now, and Unstoppable Threats). I have yet to get the Wu meets Indie Culture album, heard it's good though.

    I'm not sure of what's on the horizon but I'm interested in "Killa Season" (out in Feb) now that I've heard Cam'ron's two jabs at Jay-Z. You either like Cam'ron or you don't I guess, I find him to be entertaining. Also would like to check out the new Thievery Corporation stuff. Didn't know there was a new Strokes CD out, gotta check that too.

    This is the iTunes library I have so far with my girlfriend...So far about 6200 songs but I have yet to input about 3000+ more songs. Nothing really new here but maybe you see some things like "oh sh*t I don't have that".

    I'll give you a pass on that because I know most of the music you like is good.

    yeah I'm thinking our new national anthem won't work in a professional environment.

    It's a Russian site, and I don't fully know the deal (or if I should even have brought it up). But songs are dirt cheap, and priced according to length (0.05 to 0.15 roughly). I think the deal is you are actually paying for the bandwidth, not the song itself. I like it because you can encode the songs into whatever quality and file format you like.

    What is their music like?


    Also, you guys should totally check out The Hero Factor. They are absolutely incredible.

    Ahhh ok thanks.

    Yeah I hear you, everyone's a bit paranoid of the RIAA and its' lawyers . However, they can kiss my ass, because I had 300 CD's stolen out of my car at school a few years ago...I had left em in the trunk by accident, I hope whoever did that sh*t dies a slow painful death. So yeah, 300 CD's at a rather conservative estimate of 12.99 to 14.99 each is $3900-4500 that I had spent over my lifetime ... so please forgive me if sometimes I don't feel like paying .99 cents to get a song from iTunes, usually a song that I had already paid for the f*cking right to listen to.

    You know I often wonder what most people thought when they first heard "Wait and Bleed" and went out and bought the album. For a while most of the radio stations in NY only played the radio-version of it which is quite different then the album version. Can you just imagine the look of horror when they heard (SIC)?

    I'm not overly fond of the 3rd album. If I wanted to hear Stone Sour type Corey I would have put on the Stone Sour album. Which isn't bad, but I expected Slipknot and those sounds are few and far between. It sucks that they took the turn they did. Corey had an awesome voice for that sound.

    The Fray is an EXCELLENT new band - They have one song on the radio right now called "over my head", but I recommend the song "How to save a life" - the song is about how the singer tried to save the life of a friend of his who was addicted to crack - beautiful song.

    Now that commercial radio is dead in New York and its virtually impossible to hear anything new, where does an old guy like me find a radio station that isn't mired in the mid twentieth century?

    I also find it very hard. I don't like much commercial radio but every now and then you find a diamond in the rough and now it's, like Wexy said, dead. And I'm tired of WBAB's same 25 songs. And The Bone doesn't come in for sh*t unless you live in the boonies on LI.

    We should be getting a new Godsmack album in 06

    "It will perk people's eyebrows up again," he said. "The first couple of records were kind of the same record, in a sense. They were sort of bordering that metal sound and then the third record had more rock mixed into it. [The Other Side] really softened up the sound. This one is more rock and roll, and some songs are very epic, in a Tool[-ish] sense.

    thanks though.

    My pick was "Catch 33" by Meshuggah. Followed by Children Of Bodom's "Are You Dead Yet?"
