Hmmm, I think I'll add Talking Heads to the playlist tonight... "Found A Job."
I seen this at an outdoor cinema last year - was brilliant. One of the best live performances from any band i think.
And now for something completely different...
Wildlife by La Dispute
La Dispute is a very controversial band among the current metal and hardcore communities. Detractors often lump them in with pop-screamo acts like Sleeping With Sirens, even though their sound is decidedly different. Unlike the acts they're often compared to, La Dispute isn't overproduced, overlayered crap. It's based on a bare-bones rock format, with their vocalist poetically speaking on the topics of depression and a fascination with death. Starting from a conversational volume and rising to shouts over a number of minutes, each song is raw and emotional, a drastic contrast to other bands in this genre. There's no messing around with stupid synth harmonies or autotune, and each song tells an in-depth story.
I don't often listen to music this heavy, but I've absolutely fallen in love with this band over the course of the last two years. Highlights from the album include "King Park" and "St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church Blues". Even if you think it's not your genre at all, it's still worth a listen.
