Yes, why not? I listen to a lot of new music, old music, weird music… Any kind of music! I discover a lot of new music thanks to the albums I get from Background Magazine/artists & bands to review, but sometimes I make time to explore both new and old music by myself. Here’s a selection of what I’m listening to recently…
Let’s start with The Tea Club! I just finished my album review of their latest album Grappling (which will soon be uploaded to Background Magazine’s website and my own page). I really enjoyed the music I heard, a nice mixture of eclectic and experimental progressive rock! You can listen to their music here.
Now for something completely different. Chet Faker with Live Sessions. Chet Faker? Yep, that’s his stage name. I was listening to some random tracks on Youtube and suddenly his version of No Diggity popped up. When I heard it I was sold immediately. His three song EP Live Sessions is great! Check his version here:
Something I can’t get enough of is Mahoney‘s EP You Are The Big Bang. It’s still my number one album of 2016 so far! A splendid mixture or riffs, stoner rock and nuprog! If you want to know what I’m talking about, go check out my album review here. You can listen/buy the music here.
Old, but gold. I’ve seen Adrian Belew Power Trio back in February. Their versions the King Crimson tracks they played were phenomenal! I haven’t listened to the Discipline album for quite a while but I still enjoy it every time I put this on. Frame By Frame is one of my favourite songs on the album.
Another album I can’t get enough of is Flame, the only album Richard Barbieri & Tim Bowness made together back in 1994. I wrote a small review about this masterpiece, which you can read here. My favourite track of the album is Brightest Blue, it’s just simply beautiful:
Well, this was it for now. This is only the tip of the iceberg, so please keep an eye on the page for more playlists!
