It's a track by me, comments and criticism are welcome.

Damn I miss laid back rap like this.

One of their more under-rated tracks, I've always thought.
I will always maintain that the best hip-hop over the past ten years is to be found in England...
...not that it's homeland has a lack of decent material, though. Quality may not be the best give that it's live, I still find this a very chill freestyle to listen to. Damu is well worth checking out if mellow beats are your thing.

I thought I should share two mixes of modern demoscene music. I currently collaborate with the makers of this podcast and I promote it on YouTube.
Here are the mixes, check them out if you want, they are filled with many styles of music but good quality tracks:

I loved everything after 2:20. I mean no offence but the beginning seemed a bit repetitive and it went on for a bit too long. There's a bit at about 1:13, I think, where the beat just disappears and it feels a bit awkward. Like I said though, everything after 2:20 is spot on. Love the melody.

Oh and some sweet house from back in the day:

Been diggin' Death Cab more and more recently, especially the album Plans from '05, from which the above track is, has caught my ear. Brilliant stuff.
The Wombats are a Scouse indie band that I've been listening to lately. Their debut album, A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation is a brilliantly upbeat, vivacious collection of gems. Such as this one.
I was actually listening to MIKA's Life In Cartoon Motion back when I was in elementary school. And boy, was it frowned upon. I dug up the album a few months back for the sake of mere reminiscing, and it's actually a pretty neat lil' album.

A song I've been looking for for YEARS (literally). Finally found it.
Lovely track. Hell Safri Duo are f*cking awesome as a whole.

Man I love this song. Wish there were more rocksteady bands around today, definitely like it more than reggae or ska.

Don't let the first 15 seconds deceive you as to what this song sounds like. Very mellow vibes.
CSF have given me hope for the future of American hip-hop. Well worth a listen.
90-minute old school rave mix. Some of my favourite hardcore and jungle tunes incorporated throughout.

They're a band out of the Philadelphia area. I'm falling in love with them, and I recommend that you do too.

So I was going through Wikipedia's article on Psychedelic Rock and as usual for me with genres that flourished in the past, I look up the works of modern bands. So I saw this band, one which I've heard of before, yet seemed uninteresting so I didn't look into it any further. But today I decided to go through the band's Wiki and decided to give their first album a shot...
and holy sh*t am I glad I did. I have not heard any of this band's music before, and I absolutely f*cking love this album. I'm very picky when it comes to music and this is the first album since the day I was born of which I like every track. When it comes to the number of songs I like from them, these guys beat every other artist/band/group I've listened to by a long shot. I usually like a few tracks from a particular artist/group/band and that's it, except for very rare circumstances.
So, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, K by Kula Shaker:
I hope you guys enjoy this amazing, amazing album as much as I am right now.

On an electronic hype recently.
D-Mob's video caused a media sh*tstorm when it came out for some reason.

This first song is simply beautiful. That's all I can say.
Wish You Were Here - Sparklehorse ft. Thom Yorke
After hearing that cover I decided I'd listen to some of their original stuff. It turns out they are bloody incredible. A soothing, mellow sound that holds you in the entire time. There's actually ten songs in this video, hence it's length, and each song is from a radio session. If you have some spare time on your hands, I highly recommend listening to the entire thing. It's so peaceful.
Sparklehorse - Radio Sessions
When Emeli Sandé sang this hymn at the opening ceremony of the Olympics it felt as if the world stood still, as if all the hate and anger that surrounds us just dissipated and, for a moment, became an entity of peace. Take a moment to listen to this. Just sit back and savour every second. I promise you won't regret it.
Emeli Sandé - Abide With Me
If anyone knows of any bands or artists similar to Sparklehorse, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'd appreciate it massively.

She has amazing hair, too.

It's been a while since I last posted in here. Here are some of my latest findings (some of which I posted in other topics):
This one sounds very sensual to me.
Another good tune to relax to.
And a random one I've found recently, it's actually released for free by the artist(s), check the description of the video.

I haven't really discovered anything of interest lately (aside from the tracks above) but I'd like to share a couple of tracks I think are the finest examples of really great music.
First off, a lovely chap by the name of Neil Young. I've always liked his stuff but only recently have I began to fully appreciate it. This particular song stood out from the rest instantly. The opening riff is so enchanting and relaxing. The verses continue the aural massage until the chorus, which has to be one the nicest I've heard in a very long time. This live version is incredibly touching. I adore the fact that at after the final chorus you can see him become completely engrossed in the song. Genuinely beautiful. (Pointless side note: I'm also reminded of Agent Smith, from The Matrix, whenever I see his face).
And then there's this man, Mr Matt Corby. I honestly believe that no words could ever bring true justice to how incredible his music is. Therefore, I'll just leave you with a song.
After listening to a few of those tracks posted by Underscore Dude, I stumbled across this wonderful piece. Again, I don't really have much to say about it, this time due to the fact that I'm too tired to do anymore thinking. Also, if anyone knows of any artists like this or perhaps even what genre it might be classified as, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated.

| My dawgs couldn't tell if I|
I look Tom Cruise on Vanilla Sky, it was televised
All they heard was that I was in an accident like GEICO
They thought I was burnt up like Pepsi did Michael
I must gotta angel
Cause look how death missed his ass
Unbreakable, would you thought they called me Mr. Glass
Look back on my life like the ghost of Christmas past
Toys R Us where I used to spend that Christmas cash
And I still wont grow up, I'm a grown ass kid
Swear I should be locked up for stupid sh*t that I did
But I'm a champion, so I turned tragedy to triumph
Make music that's fire, spit my soul through the wire
By far my favourite Kanye song. Sick beat, sick flow. What more could you ask for?

I'll see your Com Truise, and raise you a Mord Fustang.
... keeping it cerebral with some Zedd
... and some Wolfgang for dessert.

@Warlord. I'm not a fan of Kanye as I don't like his personality, but the beat on that song is great. The second track you've posted is also interesting, I saved it in my "Likes" playlist.
@ghost of delete key I've listened to Mord Fustang before, good stuff but I like Com Truise more because he's more retro and he reminds me a bit of Boards of Canada. The other tracks were good but I'm not particularly interested in commercial electronic music at the moment.
Here's some more recently discovered tracks from me:
This next track is also an emotional one for me. Funny thing, as I was thinking of posting the track I remembered that I had a dream about me listening to it. The EP is free to download, just look up Sabrepulse's Bandcamp.
Throwing in a song from my all-time favorite band as well, old school house:
Posted 13 September 2012 - 09:57 AM
What do you guys think of this cover? I mean Comfortably Numb is one of my all time favourite songs, and this cover is probably one of my two all time favourite covers of the song (the other being the Van Morrison version). They did a really good job on the solo too.
Posted 13 September 2012 - 10:51 PM Edited by TheGreatGig23, 14 September 2012 - 12:31 PM.
This is one of my favourites from them. Again, they bring a whole different feeling to it.
