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 9 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 9 years ago
I’m listening to London Calling right now.
I sometimes forget how good it is, but not for long 😉Posted 9 years ago
percee p – lung collapsing lyricsPosted 9 years ago
I’m mostly listening to Ballake Sissoko at the momentPosted 9 years ago
If you liked the Black Keys, The Black Angels’ “Phosphene Dream” album may appeal.Posted 9 years ago
Death in vegas
The 2 bears

viva la woman is ace
I’m listening to Pete & the Pirates, Aiden Moffat & Bill Wells a lot just now.Posted 9 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 9 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 9 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 9 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 9 years ago
I’m listening to Damian Marley at the mo, you might or might not like it.Posted 9 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 9 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 9 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 9 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 9 years ago
On similar lines to LCD Soundsystem: !!! (aka. chk chk chk) – amazing band.Posted 9 years ago
The new John Talabot album fin is nice.
Posted 9 years ago
Check out Austin Peralta. Jazz.. Niiice.. 😉
(can’t stand it personally!)Posted 9 years ago
Talabot don’t do jazz, but it is niiiice.

New Shlohmo is good.
So I’m going to get the Tune Association thread going again. I need more stuff to investigate.Posted 9 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 9 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 9 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 9 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 9 years ago
Thanks chaps – am working through the suggestions – some real gems!Posted 9 years ago
