I can't be the only one here that listens to them, so I was wondering how many people listen to these bands and headphones you use.
Anyone listen to Tear Garden, Skinny Puppy, or any of cEvin Key's or Ogre's side projects?

I'm jumping in here, haven't lurked in a while and didn't see anything recent regarding those specific artists you mentioned or any of the many styles of music they venture into.
So, I'm not terribly familiar with Tear Garden, had one album of theirs from the early 2000s and while it was enjoyable, I didn't get really into it and never listened to the rest of their catalog.
Skinny Puppy, on the other hand, I absolutely love. I think every album of theirs has something to like about it. I have a tender spot for Too Dark Park and Rabies the most. But I'll always remember the first song I heard of theirs, Love In Vein, that was on a cassette that a buddy gave me cuz he thought I might like their sound (I was really into Ministry at the time) and it blew my mind. The rest of Last Rights followed on that half of the cassette and I was on a mission to find as much Puppy as possible, and I've never looked back. The saddest part is every time they come around here live, I always have something that I need to attend to that prevents me from seeing their show. So I've yet to experience them live first-hand, but have seen many bootleg videos.
Side projects involving the various SP members:
PlatAEU: I really like PlatAEU's music. It really is great stuff to listen to when one is stoned.
Download: Download is ******* brilliant, RIP Dwayne Goettel, Great thick layers of electronics, I can just listen over and over trying to hear everything, much like some songs on SP's Last Rights album.
Rx (Ritalin): Ritalin (Rx) was fun for a while, I haven't listened to it since right after it was released.
ohGr: And the last one i'm familiar with is ohGr. I really, really, really like his ohGr stuff. Shows his strong songwriting skills, and I just enjoy how much fun it sounds like he's having. He get's to show a bit of his more pop sensibilities, and it works.
Now if you want to go into projects that involve various collaborators of Skinny Puppy I have one that is ******* awesome (IMO): Otto Von Schirach. So ******* crazy and weird and awesome. Check his stuff out if you haven't heard of him.
As an aside (completely unrelated to SP): Venetian Snares is good ****. So many styles he incorporates into the discombobulated DnB/darkstep/rhythmic noise stuff. Album recs: Doll Doll Doll, Find Candance, Meathold, Detrimentalist and two that are quite different in the My Downfall and Rossz csillag alatt született albums.
Anyone else have artist/album recs?
