lol funny you should mention them.. I just "discovered" them here in Scandinavia a week ago when a friend of mine played "The Horror" at a party. Yesterday I played the horror for another friend, and he asked the question: "what is that band?"

howcome they suddenly have "surfaced" now?

Right now my favourites are 1976, Iced Lightning and of course the Horror. I like the "intro" track, they should have expanded on that imo...

>> and oh yes, totally agree on Muse - my favourite band. THE GROOVE!

A recommendation of my own to people who haven't heard it yet: Röyksopp (norwegian slow/dreamy dance)
And in the alternative rock genre: Kaizers Orchestra (norwegian weird rock), and Caesar's Palace (swedish retro-rock)

Radiohead? Muse? What is this madness? If Radiohead are standing on the top of the Taipei 101 tower, Muse probably manage the roof of a suburban bungalow. Mind you, if there were some sort of crane arrangement which could winch Matt Bellamy's piano from the suburban bungalow roof up to the Taipei tower, whence it could be dispatched to the ground, that'd be aces.

+1 for Grace, from this corner.

RJD2 isn't a band. RJD2 is a single DJ/Turntabalist. RJD2 was a producer for a while, but only relatively recently came out as an artist in his own right (i think RJD2's debut was 2002 or 2003). Röyksopp is great. that is a good recommendation.

If I were to only recommend one album, I would say that you should try De-loused in the Comatorium by the Mars Volta.

Hip-hop:
"T.I.M.E." - Leaders of the New School
"All Balls Don't Bounce" - Aceyalone
"The Blast Radius" - Insight (this guy is incredible, def. the best hip-hop has to offer right now)
"Bizarre Ride II - The Pharcyde" - Pharcyde
"Both Sides of the Brain" + "Future Development" - Del tha Funkee Homosapien
(Self-titled) - Deltron 3030
"Return of the Boom Bap" - KRS-One
"F.U. Don't Take It Personal" - Fu-Schnickens (out of print, can be found cheap on Half.com)
(Self-titled) + "Stress: The Extinction Agenda" - Organized Konfusion
"Nia" - Blackalicious

There are more, but I'll let you work with that for now

Everyone, this is awesome, I'm glad so many people responded, I can feel my library already being enriched. I'm listening to the arcade fire right now, wow, what a great album. RJD2 is also very cool, I love all the definitive jux stuff he produced as well (El-P, fantastic damage is awesome). Keep it coming!

Not sure about your area but the libraries near me have incredible music collections. I take out 10-20 discs at a time and rip them to my iPod. Best of all, it's free.

Even more impressive

I keep comparing him with the Avalanches - so that would be worth checking out for any RJD2 fan that doesn't know them.

Wanna jam a little (borderline punk/alternative)....try:

Story of the Year - "Page Avenue"
AFI - "Sing the Sorrow" or "The Art of Drowning"
Guttermouth - "The Album Formerly Known as a Full Length LP"

Some Alternative Jazz (Japanese):

Yoko Kanno and the Seatbelts

Borderline Folk:

Johnny Cash - "Unearthed"....It's not really country per say so don't freak out. Volume Three: Redemption is my favorite.

I hope your anti-upgradititus strategy works. It never did for me.

A lot of the crud they call country now isn't country at all, it's just lousy rock played by a guy with a cowboy hat. Real country music is amazingly good. After all, Rock n Roll was created by the intersection of jump blues and country music.

See ya

Music first!

Yea, for every dollar you spend on your rig, you should spend at least 10 on music.

I can't even begin to finish recommending :P If I have (it's pleasure, honest) to suggest, get:
Animal Collective - Here comes the indian
Aqui - The First Trip Out (just saw them this friday..shocking but swingworthy)
An Albatross - We Are the Lazer Viking
Cinema Strange - Cinema Strange
Lali Puna - Scary World Theory
Saosin - Translating the Name (Not really my kind of topics but his voice transcends typical s***emo)
Subtle - A new white
Viktor Vaughn (Doom, most slept on mother trucker in hiphop. Screw that KRS-One "I am Hip-Hop, watch me throw it up," herding and don't bother with Nas or whatever that junk is..it's all typical.

Okay so most of that isn't artfag music right? If you beatniks nod, you understand..cool man.

Methodically, get it all. Nothing makes for good other than stuff that causes you to cringe at first, or each time at that!

Peace to the middle east.

Nightwish - Once
Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
Keane - Hopes and Fears
Sarah Mclachlan - Surfacing

I'm so bitter, I saw that Glastonbury live cast when I was in the UK over the summer and Keane was played..OH FOR FS! I'm sorry, if you like it, get over them. There's really much better stuff out there..No wait, this is begging flame. I just don't see how people get off to them they're so AverageCore.

Yeah.
