    I've had Soma.fm's Drone Zone running pretty much constantly the past month (with a couple of days' detour to The National and U.N.K.L.E) and have been finding some bands/artists I hadn't heard about.

    GAS is one:

    ...of course, that's when iTunes decides it doesn't want to crash for no reason whatsoever. Crime though that that vid has only had something like 6.5m hits.

    I felt like I needed more Shout Out Louds in my life. While endeavoring to make this so I found Our Ill Wills. I've been listening to songs off of that a lot recently.

    Ah, a fellow Screamin' Jay fan. The guy was a loon, but such a great voice.

    For some reason I've found myself getting into listening to a bit of classical of late (something to do with the nights drawing in). Very into Erik Satie haunting piano works at present: -

    This track one is pretty well known: -



    But I think this one is truly stellar: -

    Just heard about Hubert Sumlin passing away. You don't get much more influential than this guy. Keith Richards owes him a career.

    If you like anything to do with rock music, Hubert and Wolf deserve a bit of your time.

    I've only got Voodoo Jive which is a best of so you can't call me a huge fan but it's all the Screamin' Jay I'll ever need. It's awesome, it's got Constipation Blues on it which is hilarious. That was my first exposure.

    Here's some "Modern Classical" to throw into the mix,Jóhann Jóhannson's "IBM 1402: Card Read Punch":



    ...and some classic Alt. Rock to help recover, courtesy of Slint:



    And just for the hell of it, some Múm:

    If you like Screamin Jay, Mystery Train is a must-see.

    One of my all-time favorite movies.

    Mmm. I think I have to second that.

    I love his concerto work and his soundtracks in particular. His operas tend to be the sort of minimalism I'm less interested in and a bit too internally repetitive and slow-developing even compared to the rest of his stuff.

    His soundtrack to the Illusionist is one of my all-time favorite albums. Of course, that soundtrack draws a lot (perhaps a bit too much) from his soundtrack to Mishima which is a lot more typical of his work and just as good for different reasons. Let me see if I can dig up one of the pieces from Mishima ... there's a particular Quartet I found that has some great recordings of the Mishima pieces re-set for Quartet. You miss some of the cool sounds he throws in for the soundtrack version but it's still great



    I also love this Harpsichord Concerto. I'm a sucker for Harpsichord music, though ... but I'm pretty sure this is as close to objectively gorgeous as music can get in any case.



    This is also quite beautiful.


    While I'm on "classical", one of my favorite such pieces is Barios Magnore's Catedral. It is a piece for acoustic guitar written in the 1920s I believe, but it is in the Baroque style. This is the most played portion, Movement III: Allegro. It's also one of the better quality recordings (and one of the better performances) I found. It's easy to find the rest of it though if you want to hear the full piece. I highly recommend it.


    Edit: Aha! I found a decent quality recording of John Williams doing the whole piece in one video (not the Star Wars John Williams).




    Here's the other video I posted before, just in case. I like to listen to different interpretations of older pieces. :)

    On classical guitar, this is one of the coolest things I've heard for the instrument:


    And another of my favourite guitar pieces, which I'm trying to learn to play properly again (been lazy the last few years), played by the same excellent guitarist:

    Wow. That's fantastic. There's a bit of a jazz sensibility to it. The artist has and incredible sense of flair, too ... I love the little barely-there vibratos. The second one's not quite as much my thing, but I'll definitely look more into it. :)

    Are you familiar with Andy Mckee? He does a lot of percussive work and has some of my favorite guitar music. It's not really classical, especially since it's all steel string but also because it's compositionally more like rock and pop music. His big think is making use of the instrument's inherently percussive nature. He's a good example of why steel string guitar is my favorite instrument ... and why I like harpsichord I suppose. There's some more below, as I couldn't pick just one to share. :)

    For anyone who isn't especially familiar with modern guitar repertoire, but interested in the instrument (perhaps interested thanks to Skalpadda's or my posts?), I really really really recommend Leo Kottke. It would be unfair to mention Andy Mckee who came after and not nod to Leo Kottke's work. The man is also quite funny in person.
