Watched Sweet Smell of Success for the first time this week and LOVED. SO. HARD, and Elmer Bernstein's score for it is straight fucking fire.

And then forty years later he was doing this RAPTUROUS shit.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Had a conversation with Teague tonight in which he told me he hadn't realized Laura Jane Grace, the lead singer of Against Me!, is a trans woman. So, for those of you who haven't had the pleasure, one of the best rock albums of recent memory!

Saaame.

Just had Lawrence recommended to me and damn I am so into them. And they make very fun music videos.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Chris Thile, Edgar Meyer, Yo-Yo Ma, and Stuart Duncan just announced that they're finally releasing a follow-up to The Goat Rodeo Sessions, which is a good excuse for me to share this piece from the original album.

The violin run at a little after 1:20 is what flying must feel like.

On a very different note, just got introduced to Caterina Barbieri, and have already put this track into heavy rotation.

I find Music Map to be really helpful for this. Just search for a band and it gives you similar bands and then you can click through if you find one you really like and just sort of follow the roads of similarity all over the map. Really fun way to kill an afternoon and find a bunch of new bands.

In this case, start with Celldweller and go from there. https://www.music-map.com/celldweller

(I'll recommend Scandroid though. It's the same artist as Celldweller, he just wanted to have a separate stage name for the Scandroid project. Scandroid, the self titled album, is easily my favorite complete album of synthwave I've ever found. Highly recommend."

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Yeah that's the one.

Also here's this. A playlist I've been bodging together from other playlists and stuff as I find it. Can't speak for everything in here by name, since I just lifted whole chunks of it blindly from other peoples playlists, but it's got some excellent stuff in it.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Most welcome! Whole record is definitely worth checkin' out—if you like Frisell's vibe, his fellow ECM guitarists Pat Metheny and John Abercrombie are also very much worth listening to.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

I just love Tool.
This song was the first single released from the 2019 album, 13 years after the last one, and it was absolutely bonkers!

The rest of the album, however, was ok+. Not great, not at all bad, but just not ace. Still, this song was great.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Hm.

I listened to that whole thing.

Where should I start, with Tool?

Re: Dubious musical taste.

It's hard to say.

I started with 10.000 days, and I love the album. Then, slowly moved through the whole catalogue.

If you liked that song, I'd say Lateralus(album) and 10.000 days(album) would be a safe bet.

The song lateralus is actually built upon the fibonacci sequence as well. It's a mathematical song.

it's hard to even define this band, because, while, they do "classify" as prog metal, it's a whole lot more to it. The vocalist is also in "a perfect circle", and Tool is more of an ensemble band than anything else, but it's just very good music.

I mean, my favorite bands are Linkin Park, Fall out Boy, 30 seconds to Mars, Paramore and that sort of thing, but for some reason, Tool just stuck with me.

I remember hearing about them back in 2003, from a friend, who said I wouldn't like them, and 2003 me agrees with that statement. However, my first real expore to them was in Guitar Hero World Tour, where schism, parabola and vicarious were playable songs, and from there on out, I just knew this band "got me". You know, how emo's in the early 2000's would define a band as getting them, not the other way around. Tool has great music, excellent compositions, and lyrics that match to boot.

I've even done Schism in a karaoke bar. Sure, the crowd probably didn't like the music, but hell, I sang Tool live.



Tool is awesome.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Tom is correct: Tool is excellent. Been a paying fan since the they played on a side stage at Lolla '92.

Having so little musical talent/education myself, I've been mesmerized by the way the guitar cadence changes in the first 20s or so since the first time I listened to this CD. Change of time signature? Syncopation? Do you music people have a name for that kind of thing?
