Streetlight is about to release an album in April so that is something I am looking forward to that.
Do you guys know of any good albums or songs that have come out this year? Or at least released to the radio this year? I am trying to stay up to date on music for this year... It should be a hard task with how many bands that I like are coming out with albums this year. Phoenix's new song Entertainment is pretty good, interesting but good.
The top rock album right now is People, Hell and Angels by Jimi Hendrix... umm haha
Don't be swayed by trends. Search out music that appeals to you - genre and era shouldn't matter that much. Unless you are just looking to be in to something for the sake of being seen to be into it.
I wasn't trying to only listen to this years stuff, I just didn't want to lose track of the bands that I do likes new stuff. I tend to give newer stuff a shot for some reason. I listened to babel by Mumford and Sons even though Sigh no more was underwhelming after Little Lion Man. Babel while not a great album is much better than Sigh No More.
I gave up trying to keep up since there is just too much out there. Just grab what you hear and like and go from there. One of the worst musical crimes as a listener is to gloss over stuff that really deserves repeated listening, in order to attempt to just 'keep up with the times'. Just because the industry can be fickle, doesn't mean as a listener you have to be.
Are you a Brand New fan, Dennis? I was just curious. We seem to have somewhat similar tastes, and I think they'd be a band right up your alley. 'The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me' is legit one of my all-time favorite albums. It's 6 or 7 years old now, but it still sounds fresh. If you haven't already, you should hop right on checking that shit out.
Knowing I'll probably regret it later hasn't stopped me from downloading Whitesnake. Maybe I feel sorry for David Coverdale or something :confused:
