Right now I'm liking this group called Duo Denim. A couple of guys from Portland. They don't really fit into a convenient genre :

Justin, missed your post... thanks!

Definitely a stand-and-deliver, Joplin-esque, old soul bubbling up in there.

Lew,

She is pretty bad ass. I saw her live couple months ago. She did not disappoint.

Another great songwriter to check out is Jeffrey Foucault. You can tell he has influences of Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and the good ole Steve Earl.

I have really been into Sigur Ros lately. I just wish I could understand the lyrics but for me it's great even if I can't.

Now that I think about it, I go through phases with music I listen to while working. For a while I was doing really fast metal stuff. The tempo seemed to keep me moving forward. There's also this french electro-dance group called Yelle that keeps me energized and positive. Lately I've been listening to this internet radio stream called "chillout lounge" that is all electronic ambient stuff.

An album that I've had in rotation lately is the last smashing pumpkins record, Oceania. I disliked most of the stuff they did after Mellon Collie, but this one is not bad at all.

I usually try to listen to lyric-less tunes while working to keep my thoughts in line but Macklemore's Thrift Store has been an exception...

i haven't decided if i really like Macklemore's stuff yet or not, i think production is pretty good, just not yet sure if i like his emcee-ing style, feel like some times he nails it and other times he has some really lame lines. i dont take note of much hip hop anymore though, so ill give him credit that he caught my ear a few times.

Absolutely heavy metal, and not an single electric cord used. Mnzozil Brass is an Austrian touring band. If you ever get the chance to go to a performance... take it.





Ana Vidovic, decidedly not heavy metal. Great studio music, for me anyway.
