  1. From record store day: I also ordered a few things online today: And also Stevie Wonder's Innervisions (the picture doesn't seem to show up). Can't wait for them to arrive .
  2. Grabbed this from another message board: Rockism - the dogma WIP § 1 Music has to be authentic. § 2 The composer, writer and singer or guitar player must be the same person. Exceptions can be made for new versions of songs allready released in accordance with rockist dogma. § 3 Music released in the album format is superior to music released in other formats. § 4 Instrumentation has to be acoustic and/ or electric guitars, acoustic drums, electric bass and a maximum of two other elements. The music should be fairly difficult to play live on said instruments. § 5 The producti
  3. Well, I've been listening to it since the digital release (newspaper album coming in May ) and I do really like it. It's not really anything that innovative or new by Radiohead's standars, it's just a short collection of mostly great songs. My favourites are Bloom, Feral, Lotus Flower, Codex, Give Up the Ghost and Separator. I'm also gonna try to get a hold of that new single they are releasing for record store day. Many people were suprisingly disappointed with the album but a part of the problem might be that it requires quite a few listens to get into. As for Radiohead in general: If
  4. I honestly can't see how the incorporation of rhythm could make music worse. For me melody and rhythm complement each other. The hooks can also come from the rhythm , you know ? For an example, I'm listening to an artist called Burial at the moment. He's genre of music is dubstep which is based almost entirely on rhythm and atmosphere. Even though the songs are not very melodic in the traditional sense, I can still get hooked on them because the rhythms are so addictive. One might need to educate themselves to be able to appreciate rhythms in a new way. Once you learn to appreciate rhythm, it
  5. Sounds like rateyourmusic.com me. I think there was a thread on this a while back . My view on that was that it seems to change every year. I enjoyed 2010 very much for an example and 2011 has been pretty good so far.
  6. It's not that new but here's something I've been completely obsessed with for the last few weeks: Portico Quartet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqZQI9YYGZI
  7. Ever since opening up to new music more and more (this happened some 6-9 months ago) I have stopped paying much attention to release years and even genres. I can find great music from all eras but I must admit that these days most of my finds tend to concentrate more on the 90s/00s and 10s. In terms of genres I've started straying away from strictly "rock" music and into many other territories. Some genres to mention: "Indie", "Alternative", Singer / Songwriter, Jazz (mostly the classics but some new stuff too), Electronic (this covers a wide range of things), some Hip-Hop, Afrobeat and starti
  8. Radiohead B-sides and live numbers from The Bends-era. This song in particular is amazing and I wonder why it wasn't on the album:
  9. Just put Jens Carelius' both albums on my spotify starred playlist. Will make sure to listen to them soon Just listened to that song too. Sounds good !

    That new Iron & Wine album sure is a grower. I was a little disappointed at first but after about 5 listens or so it has really opened up. Sam Beam seems to have gone for an even fuller sound, using a full band to give the songs more dimensions. Favourite tracks: Walking Far From Home, Tree By The River, Monkeys Uptown, Rabbit Will Run, Your Fake Name Is Good Enough For Me.
  11. Folk, Folk-Rock and acoustic music in general are some of my favourite kinds of music. I've mostly listened to newer stuff and I seem to find worthwhile music of this kind quite often. Some older stuff: There's Bob Dylan of course. I only got a compilation album so far. Might get into his music a bit more sometime. I really like Pink Moon by Nick Drake. Five Leaves Left and Bryter Layter have yet to impress me as much. Newer stuff: Bon Iver has a few good songs and For Emma, Forever Ago is overall a pretty good album which sets a pretty strong atmosphere. Bonnie "Prince" Bil

    I totally forgot about that one too. I recall hearing that they were first going to release it in 2010 but it got pushed back a bit so I think it coming out this year is quite reasonable.
  13. Ah, I knew I should have done a search first
