New music discoveries

I've recently been going all out to find new music and thought we could use a thread giving each other a head's up on new music we may not have heard of.By new I mean to you,since we have such a variance of ages here I'm sure that some of us may be aware of the artists mentioned but nonetheless I'd like to get an idea of other stuff out there.

If you'd like to add a link or copy and paste an article that'd be great.


I'm going to start with Earl Slick and I can't say enough good about his project Zig Zag.10 songs in all the project includes a few instrumentals as well as some special guest singers including David Bowie whom Earl has played with.My personal favs are the songs 1735 and Zig Zag.

Here's a little more about him.

Earl Slick: Six String Outlaw

The image of the journeyman guitarist is one of modern day rock and roll folklore. The idea of the lone gunslinger, a six string outlaw that brings their magic to all the world's stages before riding off into the sunset leaving us to wonder when they will return.

Earl Slick has been an in demand guitarist for the better part of 30 years having played on the most pivotal of albums by none other than David Bowie (David Live, Station To Station), John Lennon (Double Fantasy, Milk And Honey) and Ian Hunter (Overnight Angels). However, after years of constant touring and recording, Earl was exhausted spiritually and creatively and headed off for a much-needed break in the early 90s.

Disappearing for a few years, Earl was on the road once again with David Bowie in the summer of 2000 and has remained with the band touring numerous times and appearing on Bowie's "Live At The BBC Theatre" and "Reality" albums.

Having his creativity sparked by this recent activity, Earl began writing in earnest, the results of which produced his sterling new album "Zig Zag". Eager to talk about his first solo album in 12 years, Earl Slick graciously spoke to MusicTAP recently before finishing the first US leg of Bowie's "Reality Tour"

Now that I checked, I only own Downward Is Heavenward. That album, btw, is one of the best mixed and produced music album ever, IMO. I checked Amazon and they do have You'd Prefer An Astronaut for download. I will be d/l that tonight when I get home.

Oh, I used to listen to that album, too. One of my bandmates (several years ago) had that album. We even covered the song "Stars". Love that album. Still prefer Downward Is Heavenward, though.'

BTW, I don't care that much for Itunes. I love Amazon's service. They just started it a few months ago. They didn't have a very large selection early on. However, they have really increased their selection over the past few months.

Man I love sevendust. I have been listening to a jazzy type band called Karate. I am sure other peopel have been listening to them. You want to hear a classic strat sound Karate def has a clean strat sound with wah's for solo's. I listen to pinback too. I don't know what to classify pinbac. Kind of funk pop.

Yeah, a platinum selling album like Badmotorfinger is so effing obscure.
Unless, you're asking us to guess on some cover version . . .

They play a sort of atmospheric/ambient tranquil jungle music that really evokes South America, and they mix that with elements of doom metal. It's weird fun stuff that's worth a listen, I guess...

...especially since you can download both of their albums, "Chac Och-Ut," and "Epoch of the Five Suns" for free(!) @ http://www.realmusic.ru/albums/3568/ and http://www.realmusic.ru/albums/3353/

I like to listen to new and very different music... But man, I can't see how anybody could listen to this and actually enjoy it. I'm sure not criticizing your music taste -- to each his own. I wouldn't mind trying to understand what about this does anything for you though.

Here's what I've been listening to lately... A Gypsy Punk band named Gogol Bordello. They put on a hell of a show...

It's a strange sort of atmosphere. I never listen to this band apart from the occasional time a song of their comes up on shuffle mode. They're sort of fun in short, occasional bursts. Though, you have to enjoy doom metal in the first place to find dense, atmospheric music to be "fun" as I have described it.
