Midnight Movies, self titled. I caught their live show and had to pick up their CD.

Lashings of Sigur Rόs, especially the track Staralfur. They have the vibe I needed to create my Ring World piece.

I was listening to The Notwist, but now I'm jamming to Stratovarius.

Has anyone heard of Stratovarius? They're the MOST EPIC BAND EVER! They are metal, and I have fun jumping around to their extreme drum/guitar solos and epic choir intros. Yep. Each song is about 450 beats per minute. Heh.

Not until you mentioned them. I'm a big fan of bands like Nightwish and a lot of good metal comes out of countries like Norway and Finland. I went to the Stratovarius website and downloaded a bunch of their mp3 tasters and they sound really good! I think I prefer the female vocals of Nightwish, but as male vocals go he's pretty good, not too whiny and not the perpetual throaty growl which I'm not a fan of. Yeah, I haven't heard an mp3 off their site yet that I haven't liked. Thanks for mentioning them Clank. Now I have to go out and buy the CD's! Thanks Clank :x :wink:

Edit: I really like the track 'soul of a vagabond' think I've found the track I'll be flogging to death for the day...

When I'm not sponging the stratovarius site dry, I've been listening to A LOT of ELO this weekend (Electric Light Orchestra) and I can't get enough of the track 'Yours Truly 2095', I love that song.

Hey this is my first time posting, how you all doing.

I'm currentley listening to the new Eels album - Blinking Lights and Other Revelations.

Fantastic, tho eels are one of my favourite bands so i'm a bit biased, but 32 tracks over two cd's is value for money in my book.

:D

Actually, I've been meaning to mention this on the forum for a while, but hadn't gotten around to it...yeah! This album is great!

Eels are one of my favorite bands as well, but I definitely think this is one of their best for sure. It's pretty amazing, the first disc is pretty rough to listen to, but it totally pays off with the (slightly more) uplifting second disc. The final track is possibly my favorite song. It's a totally great payoff.

On a side note, I was totally excited when I had heard that there was a collaboration with Tom Waits on this album. He's my favorite musician, and I had always been able to hear the influence that he had on Eels. Then I was shocked to hear that he's just in the background of Going Fetal yelling "Hey!" every once and a while. Oh well, despite their similarities, I'm not sure how well they'd mesh I suppose...

Speaking of collaborations with Tom Waits...

I heard somewhere that the Pixies are going to be working on a new album (or maybe are already wroking on it?) and that they want Tom Waits to produce. Anyone know if this is true or not?

Don't know about Tom Waits producing, but MOJO magazine announced back in January that the Pixies were more than likely hitting the studio. They did record an iTunes exclusive track, Bam Thwok, last year, written by Kim Deal. I'll be seeing them later this month, maybe they'll mention it.

At this precise moment I am listening to "Whaling Stories" from Home (c.1970) by Procol Harum.

Next song on the program is "Child Bride" from In Sheltered Winds (1986) by Niadem's Ghost. Hands up everybody who's heard of them? Heh. They're a fairly obscure British neo-prog band featuring vocalist Peter Nicholls, who's also the vocalist in the slightly better-known band IQ.
