This post is mostly unrelated to the type of content that I typically post here, but I wanted to take a minute to highlight some music that I have recently found to be quite exceptional. Within the last couple months — I wish it had been sooner — I have become acquainted with Spotify, which makes available nearly every recording ever produced, with a few notable exceptions like The Beatles and Pink Floyd, etc.
I “came of age” when grunge was cool, so my favorite bands are from that early- to mid-1990s era: Nirvana, STP, Pearl Jam, Bush, Dinosaur Jr., R.E.M., Counting Crows, Green Day, etc. But for 30-somethings like myself, there is still plenty of new stuff to appreciate and dive into. Here are some selections that I have been enjoying as of late:
- New from Green Day: Stay The Night and F*** Time. Check out the new albums Uno and Dos.
- Tame Impala – Be Above It
- Tame Impala – Why Won’t They Talk to Me?
- Tame Impala – Feels Like We Only Go Backwards
- Tame Impala – Elephant
- Fiona Apple – Daredevil
- Cloud Nothings – No Future/No Past
- Cloud Nothings – Stay Useless
- Cloud Nothings – Separation
- Japandroids – The Nights of Wine and Roses
- Japandroids – Fire’s Highway
- Japandroids – Evil’s Sway
