That was pretty easy going in a powerful 'sounds of home' way. It reminds me of Neil Young and indeed Crosby Stills and Nash (playing here soon - surprised you haven't tickets for that one). Bob Dylan too. All in a genre of commentary and protest over local issues and 'the times'. If the songwriter strikes shared issues and experience, then I can imagine it really leaves a mark. Same way punk hit the perfect note for (disenchanted) UK youth in the late 70s.sundaymorningstaple wrote:You'll rarely find me in this thread, but James McMurty is absolutely brilliant but obviously won't appeal to everyone. The guy is a master storyteller. His latest album, Complicated Game is full of real gems. The 8th track, "Carlisle's Haul" nails it for me. It's where I grew up as well, in the same industry. This is music worth "Listening" to.
The night of a One Direction concert, I saw plenty of fathers with defeated looks while walking their gleeful daughters, nieces, and wives.JR8 wrote:Mrs JR8 has pretty easy-going taste in music; pop/dance, upbeat and fun stuff. Duran Duran is the one big thing that means a lot to her. I like their music since they came on the scene when I was a teenager, but wouldn't pay to go and see them. So one time a few years back she paid! And to my surprise it was a great show, and a really fun night
I have similarly surprised my wife by taking her to see AC/DC, Motorhead, Deep Purple, The Prodigy and so on. Next up is Crosby, Stills and Nash, and already she's going on jokily about how ancient the music is... but we'll see eh
I wouldn't invite her to certain things, anything too heavy like genuine punk, or too dark like say the Ninch Inch Nails. So in a way I suppose I've judged where to draw the line in the sand for her in such matters.
Well, I drew my own line in the sand re: who she is going to see this pm; One Direction, right here in Sunny-SG! Not least since she's chaperoning some mega-fan teenage relatives

The pix in the link sum-up precisely how I fear I'd feel. It's certainly going to be interesting getting a de-briefing on this evening!

this is awesome news, for people who haven't heard Tool before here you go.
As well you should and good selections, though they are nothing new and part of the 2-decade Neo-Prog scene, and that the very top of it. Heavily influenced by Pink Floyd BTW, that band you never really got into....rajagainstthemachine wrote:Porcupine tree -this band takes a lot of my airplay now.
actually I was going to say they reminded me of pink floyd, whose influences i can hear in many of their songs, I just began with one of their albums called In Absentia. I plan to listen to almost every album now very underrated bunch of guys.Brah wrote:As well you should and good selections, though they are nothing new and part of the 2-decade Neo-Prog scene, and that the very top of it.

Thought you listened to harder stuff, and they have harder stuff, like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMEwM3YHiME
If you like them, check out Steven Wilson's solo stuff, he's the key guy in PT
