  1. Hope there isn't another thread like this one already!

    This week I've been listening to the finest export to come out of Canada since Moosehead lager...


    Snakes and Arrows by the YYZed lads...

    RUSH
     
  2. I was listening to a lovely song sent to me by a sweet Italian friend. :001_wub: It is sung by an Italian singer in Spanish. It's an adaptation of a song by Caetano Veloso.

    Dry, an audiobook by Augusten Burroughs
     
  4. Holly Cole's Shade.

    If you haven't heard this Canadian singer, you're really missing something. About half of Shade has her singing smoking-hot versions of old tunes on the subject of summer heat--Heat Wave, Something Cool, Too Darn Hot.
     
  5. These days I've been listening to a few things:

    1) The Weakerthans, an indie band from Canada
    2) Dubstep, a sub-genre of the UK garage scene
    3)Tokyo Police Club
    4) Death From Above 1979
    5) Bobby Timmons

    And always in my rotation during every rainy season: Etta James - Mystery Lady: The Songs of Billie Holiday

  8. Right now, The Artie Roast!!
     
  9. Right now, Academy Of St. Martin-In-The-Fields Under Neville Marriner_Bolero_03_Petit Poucet, Ma Mere L'Oye.mp3
     
  10. Great choice!

    Add, Miles Davis "Kind of Blue", Astrud Gilberto "The Astrud Gilberto Album"
     
  11. So is Currituck County over with? Or is TPC just the guy's side project? He sure is talented.
     
  12. My rental car has XM Radio, so Sunday night I found the Comedy Station (150 I think) and haven't turned it off yet. Tears in my eyes more often than ever before.
     
  13. Bitches Brew-Miles Davis
     
  14. This was recommended to me recently by a friend living in Arizona. I don't really know much about the background of the band members yet. But, I've found Currituck County on one of my download sites, and can't wait to hear it.
     
  15. I love Miles Runs the Voodoo Down on that album. Great tune. Speaking of Miles, are you also a fan of On The Corner?
     
  16. I basically listen to what my son is into at the moment...currently:

    lots of old cowboy music (Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Sons of the Pioneers)
    the beatles (a lot of magical mystery tour and the white album)

    when given my choice of music:
    pixies
    beatles
     
  17. Yeah I like Miles' "cool Jazz" (Birth of the Cool,Kind of Blue) as well as his "jazz fusion" albums like Bitches Brew and On the Corner.

    My favorite Is Kind of Blue. I can listen to it over and over. I wore my vinyl (that I picked up at a garage sale)and had to buy it on CD.
     
  18. Right now, I'm listening to her Blame It On My Youth album -- very old, some interesting dissonance, and The Holly Cole Trio made some beautiful music. To tell you the truth, I haven't listened to her in several years; thanks for giving me the unintentional nudge.
