Joanna Newsom - Colleen
I love the cyclical style of this tune. Plus I get giddy during the bridge where she shouts "HAH!" I don't know why, I think it's an inspired moment in music I guess.
Currently relishing in the musical orgasm which is Chicane - Offshore. <333
Listening to a bunch of Rap/Hiphop or some RnB's to chill.
I'm open to whatever comes to me. I have no general preference.
Though, I've begun to listen to Imogen Heap, really got caught with her first album.
Anthrax's "I am the Law'. It's sheer metal perfection. Scott Ian is a god among the living.
Raps songs these days aren't as good as the ones in the early late 90's and early 2000.
Beautiful by Ami Suzuki
Florence And The Machine - Dog Days Are Over.
When I first got the album I didn't like it that much. There were some good tracks but nothing that really stood out but then I just left it on repeat for a while and it really grew on me, it's an amazing album.
Right now...I'm really big on listening to Trish Trang, Utada Hikaru, and Ayumi Hamasaki. I found my old J-pop cd a friend burned back when I was still in high school.
One of Trish's best songs I think is Crossing Over. Lie to Me is lovely as well. For Utada...Kremlin Dusk and Hotel Lobby. Distance and First love are also very beautiful.
I really...would marry Trish or Hikki if laws allowed it.
I don't think i'll be able to take Chicane seriously after butchering Hoppipolla...
As far as electronica goes, I picked up Ikebana by Zero Cult today. Very nice album.
Electronica is something that's quite foreign to me. I listen to bands with Moogs and other synths and electronic instruments but I wouldn't consider any of it electronica. Any recommendations?
On the topic of Japanese artists, my favourite band happen to be Japanese. They are called Mono and they play beautiful, soaring, dynamic instrumental music that has the ethereal highs of classical orchestral, the ambient drones and twinkling guitars of post rock, and the celestial lows of doom/sludge. They are easily the best live band i have ever seen and strongly advise you guys to check them out! They are starting a US tour at the end of the month so check out their myspace to see if they have a show near you. You won't experience anything quite like them, i promise

Other notable Japanese bands i like include Boris, Envy, World's End Girlfriend, Melt Banana, Merzbow etc... I'd like all of these if they were from any other country too, but in bands like Melt Banana's case i don't believe they'd be the same if they were from America or England or something. It adds to the charm and eclectic nature of their music.
Oh, and Boris opened for Nine Inch Nails on their latest US tour so a couple of you may have seen them. Melt Banana opened for Tool on their US tour a few years ago, too. Possibly the only band that is capable of confusing Tool fans... Awesome.
