    I always like these threads. It's a great way to get into new music, talk about music you love, and learn what kind of music others are into.

    NOW PLAYING:

    Artist: Stevie Wonder
    Album: Music Of My Mind (1972)
    Song: I Love Every Little Thing About You

    Such a good album, such a good song. Stevie's voice is absolutely angelic, so full of range and soul. And not to mention the awesome instrumentation on the album. The bass and drums are so tight, the keyboard so spacey and atmospheric. I strongly suggest getting into Stevie Wonder's early 70's stuff.

    What is da rest of yall listenin ta?

    Artist: The Roots
    Album: Illadelph Halflife (1996)
    Song: Episodes

    I love this album. Probably the most straight up hip-hop of all the Roots' albums.

    Now Playing: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Soundtrack

    I really love the music from this film. It has been on pretty heavy rotation on the iPhone since I got it. One of the songs has even become my main ringtone.

    Garbage- Why do you love me.

    I listened to Garbage whilst I was growing up and Shirley Manson is my hero, she is amazing.

    Neil Young- I've Loved Her So Long


    Neil Young's first album is so awesome, definitely one of those albums that gets swept under the rug by the rest of his albums.

    I got to see a spin off of Hawkwind featuring Nik Turner, called Nik Turner's Space Ritual with special guest Helios Creed on guitar back in the 90s. Great show, very spacey. More sci fi than fantasy. However:

    Michael Moorcock used to write lyrics for Hawkwind.

    He use to often read them live as well did Mr Moorcock at times.
    He also wrote lyrics for a few Blue Oyster Cult tracks (Black Blade & The Great Sun Jester are the ones that spring to mind).
    His own project was Michael Moorcock & The Deep Fix. His “New Worlds Fair” album is pretty good and still comes up in my playlists often.

    and why not, now playing is Michael Moorcock & The Deep Fix – “Ferris Wheel”

    Kivenkantaja by Finnish pagan metal band “Moonsorrow”.
    Talk about evoking images (sorry, I know that’s another thread but) this album make me feel like grabbing a big sword, jumping on my horse and racing of through the snow complete with furry cape and horned helm to pillage a settlement of Christians (no offence meant).
    Brilliant stuff
