Iron Maiden! They were one of the first bands that I really loved enough to listen to a full album. Then I got really into super heavy metal and metal core for a while (Parkway Drive, As I Lay Dying, Affiance, Amity Affliction, Bring me the Horizon). Most of the time now I just hit discover on Spotify or choose a random genre under recently added.
My brother just sent me this new album by 1939 Ensemble. If you like to work to instrumental post rock with jazz and surf rock influences, you might like this album. The drummer is Jose Medeles who was also the drummer for the Breeders.
If I am listening to music and hear a song I like, I'll use Shazam to ID and it also serves as a "new music" list for me.
I was listening to the local 'alt" rock station here in Chicago, heard a song and hit Shazam. Now normally, most, if not all, songs I hit have thousands, hundreds of thousands if not over a million "Shazams". It is a popular app. I did a double take for the song below. It had 26 "Shazams" a couple months ago. It is now up to 63.
I found out they are local and have played the Metro a couple times. Their lyrics are a bit juvenile and the hook is somewhat on the edge but not quite original, but nonetheless, I like supporting local young folks pursuing a dream.
Them live at the Metro. (I'd just be a sad old man in that crowd )
