Message in a bottle...


26 jan. 2006, 4h53m

Well, here I go sending this out and wondering if it will in fact result in another message floating in on tomorrow's tide... or i suppose any other tide for that matter. This is basically just a random attempt to engage in some sort of conversation.

I write this wondering if anyone out there in iScrobblerland has any musical suggestions. If there were one band that you think i simply MUST listen to what would it be? I love discovering new music and this is a shameless attempt to find some more. Obviously my profile gives an indication as to what sorts of things I have already discovered... Lately my new friend Jordon hooked me up with Transatlantacism by Death Cab and my first encounter with Explosions in the Sky. I am also enjoying the newest Thrice CD that I have been listening to at my best friend Brian's request.

Anyway, I don't know if anyone will read this, much less respond, so here is a shot in the dark.

    Over the Rhine. Their website has music you can stream and music you can download, and there's even more that you can download (legally and free) at Paste Music's website (so you have no excuse for not checking them out).

    If you enjoy EITS and would like to get into post-rock, this group might help: For specific artists, try Sigur Ros, Mono, Do Make Say Think, Six Parts Seven. Others might suggest Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai, 65daysofstatic, Tortoise. As for bands more or less similar (I do not know if this is the proper term to use) to Death Cab for Cutie, you might want to try The Shins, Rilo Kiley, Beulah, Nada Surf, The Postal Servie (whose members include Ben Gibbard of DCFC and Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley), Neutral Milk Hotel, The Decemberists. There are a lot more, but I am pretty sure someone else would pipe up and give other suggestions. Have fun discovering!

    sorry mousey, but i'm afraid i've already informed scotty of imogen heap's greatness. i will second the denali, black keys, calexico, mellowdrone, ratatat, taj commentary, upperville, and wilco suggestions. but i would implore you to check out, if you haven't already, david gray, the shins, brave saint saturn, jon brion [ he did the 'i heart huckabees' and 'eternal sunshine' soundtracts ], medeski, martin, and wood [ a fantastic jazz trio, it's a soft 'j' ], eisley, rosie thomas, frou frou, and aqualung ... i'll have more for you soon, my man.
