Im going to second JJ Grey & Mofro. They have a down and dirty southern sound that is perfect to sit back and enjoy. Ive been jammin to them a lot since the new album came out.

New Daft Punk. Can't escape it all summer, and I don't mind a bit.

I listen to music the same way Philippe Starck does (I tried it out and I love it). I just create a huge playlist with only my favorite songs, and that's all I listen to all day every day, like one big ritual. Sometimes I'll discover something new and I'll add a few songs, but I'm very very selective. It cuts down the time I spend searching for new music. At the moment it's an enormously eclectic mix, a lot of uptempo a la Daft Punk/Faithless/Jamiroquai/Fatboy Slim/Zuco103, some jazz, and a lot of calm, meditative music from india, deva premal, Air, Scandinavian music.

Something I've started doing a lot lately is listening to the original scores to films and video games. Video game soundtracks especially seem to be designed to give you something interesting to listen to without being distracting.

Here are some examples:

I listen to funk / electronic / indie, whether on the radio (Fm4 in Austria) or through websites like:

Le Tournedisque // http://www.letournedisque.com/home

RedBull Music Academy // http://www.rbmaradio.com/

Boiler Room // http://boilerroom.tv/

The artist usually are Daft Punk (Discover, Homework and Human after all), French Kiwi Juice, Nicolas Jaar, Darkside, Kartell, Cezaire, Flume and Digitalism. I also like to dig into 50s and 60s jazz or soul. Usually something that puts you in a good mood and proactive.

This was last week going on and on while skething

I am with you with the one playlist technique. I don't think I am all the way into that approach (I mainly organize playlists by a few artists but end up listening to the same few playlists exclusively).

Mentioning Scandinavian music, do you know A-ha? They are one of my favorites, but I have found that not many people here in the States know of them outside of their one hit here, but they have some amazing other stuff.

One of the nice things about talking with designers who have more experience than me is that they sometimes actually know what I am listening to:

Alphaville (known for Forever Young, Big in Japan, who have an awesome mix of catchy dance tunes, deep ballades, etc.)

A-ha

Depeche Mode -- has seemed to survive very well, good amount of people here know them or grew up with them. Even searching the Core, they have been mentioned a few times.

Duran Duran -- some of their stuff is amazing, others is pure garbage.

The Human League

Talk Talk

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD)

Pet Shop Boys

nice, I'll have to check him out.

To make the youtube imbed thing work, click the youtube button in your post and then past the ID number of the video in there. The ID number is basically the very end of the share link.

This is good sample of their live handiwork, the true test of a good band.

Perhaps NSFW.
