  1. I'm also listening to everything by The Rosebuds - mainly because the lead singer sounds a lot a friend of mine - especially on tracks like this - it's ghostly hearing his voice.
  2. Two for one - it's the track Taxi by Blue States but I couldn't find it on its own but its used in this trailer for the terrifying 1966 Truffaut film of Fahrenheit 451 - I was terrified of the future when I read it when I was about 14 but most of Ray Bradbury had that effect on me at that time)
  3. Tom Rosenthal - frustratingly inconsistent artist IMHO - sometimes brilliant, sometimes tedious and irritating.
  4. Everyone says the same thing about The Clientele - under-rated! I've been binge listening to everything they've ever done - I could have picked any number of their songs - this is the opening track from their great 2005 Strange Geometry album... it's as good a place as any to start listening to a band I know many of you will wonder why you never heard of them before.
  5. Listening to this again for the first time in years - at 1:18 always thought the guitar sounded a little like the sound of Tom Verlaine (Television) on Marquee Moon - maybe the phrasing is similar.
  6. Not an album or tracks as such but I came across a video of a live show I saw in Barcelona a few years ago - it was hands down the highlight if my holiday and I'd recommend a trip to Barca just to see a show like this - Gaudi's buildings and the cathedral (Familia Sagrada) are astounding and unforgettable but so was the flamenco dancing and music I saw and heard at this show in the incredible Palau de la Música Catalana - the dancing was electrifying, emotional and full of genuine passion... Go if you ever get the chance. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvsXDU35owpxRv5Dd4qIh9g
  7. I'm trawling a deep trench of atmospheric instrumental ECM-label type jazz ATM - Andy Sheppard - British sax player... Andy Sheppard Quartet - And a day... (Romaria 2018)
  8. Anything with the drumming of Michael Giles - I have always loved this guys drumming and I just had a raving mad passion to hear him again - he appeared on all sorts of odd albums in the early 70's after leaving King Crimson - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Giles In particular I've been listening to everything by the 21st Century Schizoid Band made of alumni from King Crimson....any Crimson fan should check them out. Look at the line up Jakko Jakszyk - guitar, lead vocals, keyboards, flute Ian McDonald - alto saxophone, backing and lead vocals, flute, keyboards, piano, percussion Mel Collins - alto, tenor and baritone saxophones, backing vocals, flute, keyboards, Peter Giles - bass, backing vocals, percussion Michael Giles - drums, backing and lead vocals, percussion I've also been listening to the last 3 albums by Jackson Heights as he played on those albums: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackson_Heights_(band) he has a light, crisp, jazz influenced progressive rock style - he's a great but under rated British rock musician imho. (as is his brother - the bass player Pete)
  9. Big Thief - their latest Capacity which made me listen to the previous one, Masterpiece. Before that I was listening to the band Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever.
  10. We were thinking more of songs in the pop/rock/folk category - could be classic or more recent (as though they are diametrically opposed/mutually exclusive) but he wants to play drums first & foremost and secondly, some bass. thanks anyway.
  11. Thanks for that White Stripes song suggestion. The video is NOT me - Ben Kweller is a pretty damn good performer live and was (maybe less so these days) a great songwriter.
