Music to watch properties by... myspace recommendation's

Postby Beerhunter on Wed Jan 30, 2008 10:34 pm

During the past few weeks, being tied to a computer developing this toolbar, I've become hooked on myspace.

There's lots of good unsigned or lesser know bands out there, here's a few I like...

  • Ruarri Joseph - easy listening, upbeat, sing along stuff - ideal for when something goes right.
  • The Dub Pistols - I really like my ska, and this is an interesting mix of live band and dj.
  • Peatbog Faeries - Another band combining styles, this time from Isle of Skye - classically celtic with a modern twist.

Anyone got some recommendations of myspace bands to listen to?

You want to use Last.FM - it's groovylilcious!

Here's mine: http://www.last.fm/user/gdoutch

Or pop in your favourite band's name, click play, and leave it while it constantly plays tunes you like.

Thats good... First track (If I try) started off a bit Primus/Rage Against The Machine :twisted:

I'm listening to a lot of Within Temptation at the moment.. fanstastic live too :D

I seem to have this thing about female singers at the moment, like Nouvelle Vague... only the French could do such stylish covers :oops: (should add.. have a listen to http://www.nouvellesvagues.com/english/music.html as well as myspace)

Cheers

Just been listening to "Within Temptation" and think they are a good band: as a critical musician I think;

"What Have You Done Now" has a good tune behind it but is a little lyrically challenging (too main stream)
"Frozen" sounds like it has very strong Evenescence/Madona/Avril Lavigne influence but still not a bad tune (easy listening)
"Stand My Ground" sounds like it could have been on Metalica's S&M album
"All I Need" is an interesting acoustic choice for a 'gothic/rock' band... sounds quite 'ballady' (westlife versus queen?)
"Angels" reminds me of a lighter female version of the rasmus

On the whole of very good and interesting mix of influences and styles that puts a very different edge on the genre

I see what you mean about "Nouvelle Vague" it's got 'Gay Paris' written all over it... nice easy listening, I also like the jazz/moetown thing they have going for them... can see why you like them

Thinking about it, I think one of the things I really like about Within Temptation is that is quite "orchestral", in the same way I find early Metalica tracks... there's a hidden counter melody which you hear in your mind.

I see what you mean about "Nouvelle Vague" it's got 'Gay Paris' written all over it... nice easy listening, I also like the jazz/moetown thing they have going for them... can see why you like them


Or it could just be the sexy french female voice ;) Hopefully they don't clash with anything else I want to see at Beautiful Days.

Another very interesting band.. 12 Stone Toddler.. very much a Mike Patton/Mr Bungle influence... and some of the tracks could be from the lighter end of California.

One of the most underrated and unluckiest bands... Rialto.

To me a touch of the Beatles and in their later stuff New Order.

Something quite different and has a *lot* of influences.. the band is Leprous, the album Tall Poppy Syndrome (http://open.spotify.com/search/Leprous)

For those without spotify... a youtube track

Don't be put of with the heavy riffs.... the albums quite prog rock as well :shock: and very delicate in places too.
