Reccomend me some music
So, i learned of the black keys debut and LCD Soundsytem’s first ep from here – what gems can the collective offer today?Posted 10 years ago
The Burns Unit
Bat for Lashes
None of them have much, if anything in common, apart fropm the fact that they are brilliant.Posted 10 years ago
I’m listening to London Calling right now.
I sometimes forget how good it is, but not for long 😉Posted 10 years ago
percee p – lung collapsing lyricsPosted 10 years ago
I’m mostly listening to Ballake Sissoko at the momentPosted 10 years ago
If you liked the Black Keys, The Black Angels’ “Phosphene Dream” album may appeal.Posted 10 years ago
Death in vegas
The 2 bears
the list goes onPosted 10 years ago
viva la woman is ace
I’m listening to Pete & the Pirates, Aiden Moffat & Bill Wells a lot just now.Posted 10 years ago
For a good lucky dip get on the iPlayer and tune into Huey Morgan’s radio 2 or 6 music show. A huge variety of music and you will love at least some of it.Posted 10 years ago
The Burns Unit
all a heavy part of the collection – for some reason can’t get on with the black angels although I did see them storm a gig in manchester a few years ago
Will check out the others- cheers folks, keep them coming!Posted 10 years ago
Check out the piano concerto No 2 in F major composed by Dmitri Shostakovich. One of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written.Posted 10 years ago
If you like the Black Keys try RL Burnside, Ass Pocket of Whisky and Wish I was In Heaven. I saw the Black Keys the other week and saw Rich Robinson this week so I’ll recommend his latest, Through A Crooked Sun, one of the best albums I’ve heard for a long time, a grower.Posted 10 years ago
I’m listening to Damian Marley at the mo, you might or might not like it.Posted 10 years ago

Well, there’s a new field music album out.
The Cornshead Sisters debut is out soon too.
And the Futureheads have an Acapella album out soonPosted 10 years ago
Get a DAB radio, a notepad or Shazam on a smartphone, and listen to 6Music as often as you can and take notes.Posted 10 years ago
Go into WHSmith and buy The Word magazine regularly and listen to the free CD and read the reviews. A lot of the artists mentioned will become very familiar. It’s how I continually find lots of new music.
I could also mention:
Beth Jean Houghton and the Hooves Of Destiny
Niki & The Dove
Sharon Van Etten
James Levy & The Blood Red Rose
Lianna La Havas
All these are tags from the last couple of weeks on Shazam that caught my attention on 6Music. A significant number I’ve bought where available; not all are, yet.
There’s shit-loads of good new music out there that’s easy to find, just listen to 6Music.
Here’s my contribution. Slight mish-mash 🙂

If you like the retro sound like the Black Keys, which are awesome btw – all albums, then check out the singers solo album, forgot the name. Or some sunshine aussie psych try tame impala – innerspeaker. Still big fan of The Horrors – Skying too.Posted 10 years ago
cant go wrong with listening to 6 music. i love the steve lamacq/ marc riley section of the day. excellent cross section of new and old. acdc, nick cave, echo and the bunnymen, old adam and the ants, dead kennedys last night 🙂Posted 10 years ago
while we’re on the subject of 6Music – Jarvis Cocker’s Sunday Service is excellent. Quite akin to John Peel at his best.Posted 10 years ago
On similar lines to LCD Soundsystem: !!! (aka. chk chk chk) – amazing band.Posted 10 years ago
The new John Talabot album fin is nice.
Posted 10 years ago
Check out Austin Peralta. Jazz.. Niiice.. 😉
(can’t stand it personally!)Posted 10 years ago
Talabot don’t do jazz, but it is niiiice.
Have only just discovered Onra, shame on me…..Posted 10 years ago
New Shlohmo is good.
So I’m going to get the Tune Association thread going again. I need more stuff to investigate.Posted 10 years ago
No way that one passed under my radar
So I’m going to get the Tune Association thread going again
Was just thinking the same thing myself, have got a lot of new stuff but not had time to check most of it. Symetry – Themes for an imaginary film is good if you’ve not heardPosted 10 years ago
I get a lot of my new music via Gorilla vs. Bear.
Their mixtapes can be a bit hit and miss, but they’re a good way of finding new music if you can’t get 6 music. Usually more convenient than downloading the individual tracks too.
I’m liking the new Burial EP at the moment, particularly Ashtray Wasp, and I quite Niki and the Dove’s The Fox.Posted 10 years ago
If any of you use spotify you should try spotibot.type in a band you like and it generates a playlist that you can drag directly into spotify.obviously of similar stuff to the artisy you typed in.you can choose the length of the playlist too.its a good way to discover new stuff.
Personally i miss passing round mix tapes though!Posted 10 years ago
paulosoxo, the MPFree on 6Music Wednesday was the Cornshead Sisters, and very good it was too. Nice connection with 6 as Marie Santiago was Lauren’s bandmate in Kenickie. Good to hear another of the girls making music.Posted 10 years ago
Thanks chaps – am working through the suggestions – some real gems!Posted 10 years ago
