Random ... a thread to post something we're listening to, or have recently, that we like a lot.

Multiple entries welcomed.

on Meatloaf, highlighting his showmanship and incredible singing voice....Samples from the album that would become Bat out of Hell were initially rejected by album companies because the songs were too complicated and too long -

Really interesting
I will tell you what I DON'T like...

the new Weezer single "Feels Like Summer"

not a reference to your "Beezer" name, I just happened to listen to it this morning at the gym.. if I had 10 thumbs ALL would be down.
New Depeche Mode out today  
Gap92 : 3/17/2017 10:04 am : link
and I'm sure I'll like that.
I've been digging the new Mastodon and Afghan Whigs songs from their upcoming albums.
Love the new Ryan Adams album, Prisoner.

And, for some reason, I've been super into Supertramp's "Breakfast in America" as of late. That and Gentle Giant mid-70s prog.

OHHH.. I love all of that. Can't wait on the new DM today. I forgot about it.

I'm REALLY liking the new Ryan Adams. He should re-name it "Mandy Moore Broke My Heart".. what a great album.

Gentle Giant is cool.. I got into Caravan lately. It's really cool stuff.
Big Weezer fans in the BeezHaus ...

But the white album and anything after has been panned badly in these parts. We are always hoping for a return to blue, red, even green sounds.

step 1) Get Matt Sharp back in the band
step 2) (this is mean) Perry Como needs his heart broken
step 3) They need to listen to Pinkerton again
step 4) write

too many steps.. I think I have given up!

I am a Depeche Mode fan and looking forward to the new album but I am borderline shocked that they could headline at the Garden for 2 nights.
I saw them at MSG and Barclays  
Gap92 : 3/17/2017 11:28 am : link
the last two tours, both with a sold-out house full of crazed fans, so I'm not too shocked about two nights at MSG. NYC loves them some Depeche.

Now getting tickets is another story. They had a 'points-system' presale. I pre-ordered the album and got a 'place in line.' When it came time to buy the tickets, I got nothing. By the time the general onsale came about, many dates were already sold out due to the many, many other corporate pre-sales. Basically, their ticket philosophy was a shitshow this time around; keeping many fans out while serving up a banquet to scalpers (just look at secondary sites). Just another example that makes me long for the days of one onsale date where your ass waits in the cold for 5 hours to get a ticket, but you get one because they haven't been taken by bots and 850 corporate presales. Get off my lawn, I know, but shit has gotten out of hand.
*when it came time to buy tickets

= fan presale. I got ugats.

The White album? that was released in 2016, you have to go back at least 15 years to find a time when Weezer was relevant.

Though I did kind of like the song Beverly Hills.
I've been on a long Lumineers bender

So good. Moar albomz plz.

pjcas18 : 3/17/2017 12:19 pm : link
went to see a concert last summer for a band called Panic at the Disco.

They told me some band they never heard of named Weezer was opening for them. I thought holy hell, WTF happened to Weezer they're opening for Panic at the Disco.

Found out later they were technically co-headlining and Weezer went on last. Still kind of sad.

almost as sad as when I saw Huey Lewis and the News play at the local AM radio station annual kite fly/chili cook-off. Can't get much lower than playing the chili cook-off. And everyone kept walking by them and saying "I'm afraid you're just too darn loud"

I agree about weezer.. Pinkerton for me.

OK.. I listened to the Depeche Mode. It's an EXCELLENT album. It's very politically driven, and despite me not agreeing with the message, I truly appreciate how passionate they are. It's dark and dismal (aka, Depeche Mode).

I will listen to it many times over. Damn they are pissed lol
I've been OD'ing on Hiatus Kaiyote...

...brilliant jazz/soul fusion. Absolutely love their stuff.

Been enjoying the new Thievery Corporation release (Temple of i and i)as well. They've turned back to reggae, in a big way.


Dig this band

and especially this song. Really chill and great vocals. Always nice to see local dudes from Brooklyn come out with great music.

on Sunday. Looking forward to it. Also really like the new Ryan Adams record. I haven't really liked any Stones record since Emotional Rescue, but Blue and Lonesome is really good.

It's darn good. Funny, he's so prolific and I used to criticize him for releasing too much. His last few albums have been really damn good and very concise, and now I wish he'd release more.
