What are you listening to right now?

This isn't me being drunk (per usual) or overreacting. This is the best album of any genre I've heard in 2 or 3 years. 

 

If y'all don't like hip-hop at all then maybe ignore it but for anyone that likes to explore genres I'd recommend you give it a spin. I'm pretty blown away right now.

For those with a passing interested in the Dunedin Sound / Flying Nun / New Zealand music, drummer Hamish Kilgour passed away this week. So been listening to a lot of the Clean. My favorite of theirs

I've been on a Samantha Fish kick lately.

 

I find this 4 years later. Thank you. I love finding stuff that's new to me. Especially a bad ass jam like this one. I am a little bored with the same music I've been listening to since 1975.

To get away from the album rock thing, may I suggest Duke Ellington and Johnny Hodges, Back to Back album.

Love the Clean and glad I got to see them.  Flying Nun Records is great--didn't catch the Chills last fall but would have liked to.  Also love me some Jean Paul Sartre Experience.  The Bats are touring now.

i am guessing you and I could talk hours on this subject.. 3Ds, The Verlaines, Bailter Space, The Cake Kitchen, This Kind of Punishment, Straightjacket Fits, Tall Dwarfs, and on and on and on..

Did you see the Clean at Club DeVille was back when?

The Bats are touring the United States?! Any other info you can point me to? Not finding anything.

Sorry--wrong bats.  Thought I saw them listed but was Fruit Bats.  I do like The Bats.  I would have loved to attend this a few years ago:

Saw the Clean a few years back at Rock and Roll Hotel in DC.  They were still really good.

A song off of this album wound up in my head because I was listening to a related track ("I can't go for that" by Hall and Oates) - so I went and pulled up the song in question for the first time in awhile.

This is a record that when I hear it it conjures some pretty vivid memories. Some of those are good some of those are bad. I actually had to pause the song I had pulled up because it was a total overflow of emotions from a previous chapter in my life and I wasn't ready for it. 

Needless to say - this is an insanely good record and I think has only gotten better as it's aged. There's really nothing before or after it that I could even compare it to off the top of my head.

(to a larger point - music is wild. I'm sure there are some songs or albums that elicit some pretty powerful emotions or memories for some of you - especially if you haven't heard them in awhile)
