What/Who are you currently listening to?

Recommended Posts

Just felt it necessary given the conversation in the Superbowl thread.  Maybe a place where someone finds something they like randomly with what we share.

 

You can present your music with or without any other commentary. I tend to choose the latter.

Just a great jam, IMHO.  I love funk, and if you pay attention to the lyrics - a commentary on hip hop (at the time) with what record executives wanted the band to produce, but what they felt ended up doing - rock n roll shelters all.

 

 

@D Bone.... Like I said, if you ever work up the nerve to listen.

I pop this song on in the mornings occasionally  to get me going.  And gee, it too is "funky".....or at least a character in the song is supposed to be funky:

And if my funk does not involve poodles, I usually like it coming from Uptown.....old style:

Honestly couldn't tell you.  If you're talking a recent award then it couldn't be this particular album, Because it came out when I was a kid - early 2000's.

Yeah, the man is probably the biggest musical influence in the group. They did a piece on NPR's tiny desk that was good.   Can't leave out Black Thought though, very underrated lyricist.  Actually had no idea who he was until I heard him on a Linkin Park album once upon a time.

Generally I'm not into classic hard-rock and metal with additional strings or brass... But that was pretty damn solid.  

Credit to the sound engineers as well,  terrific balance.

I listen to the rock station here. Being in West Virginia, there isn’t a lot of good rock stations. Mostly country, which I don’t like that much

I'm on Audible and just finished listening to The Good Lord Bird by James McBride. It was an excellent novel about a young black boy who is "saved" from slavery by John Brown during "Bloody Kansas" days before the inevitable Harper's Ferry Raid of 1859. It's full of humor and very deep understanding of the black experience up through the years even though it ends in 1859. Very well worth the journey which is based on real history as well as this fictional main character who "passes" as a girl for self preservation. Closest thing to a Black Huck Finn type of adventure out there. Mark Twain would approve.

The novel was published in 2013 which is way before BLM. You could have said the same about Uncle Tom's Cabin or Huckleberry Finn. It just happens to be an excellent novel that make you laugh not unlike Huck Finn does. If I thought it was political I would have posted it over there instead of here where we post things that are entertaining, which it certainly is.

Godsmack was another nu-metal band I just couldn't stand despite having a great vocalist.  Having said that, their acoustic work like this is something I enjoy.

Speaking of great vocalists, this woman is incredible. Another from the greatest open air music festival on earth. Wacken...

 

 I've seen Nightwish and I don't know how tall Floor Jansan is but I'm 6'5 and we seemed to be eye to eye.

 

Another highlighting her abilities.
