^^ A big hell yeah to the RHCP; definetely my favorite rock band.
- The last song on “Mushroom Jazz 7″. Pure awesome. Make sure to listen to the part where the guitar and horns start to kick in.
Not many people have heard of them, but check out Big Gigantic (look up their song Stronger). Its an electronic duo who combines live saxophone and drums. Quite simply, the best music I’ve heard. Seeing them next Sunday!

Looking for new music to listen to and im sure most of you HEthens have good taste.
Here are some of my personal favorites
Animals as leaders
Underachievers (if you like underground hiphop conscious rap)
@amandafellman, I’ve been lost in her character for months now. I love the song Trash, Last Girl On Earth, Summertime Sadness… pretty much everything. People diss her bc she’s so depressing and flighty but I just love how she embodies all that pain and seduction. lol.
Pretty Lights. Nothin better. This is my favorite of his but let me tell ya he’s a musical genius that I have a hard time describing. His music ranges from haunting to enlightening. All his stuff is free at prettylightsmusic.com check him out
@captainxmorgan, Personally, I’m a big fan of hip-hop. Not the shit that gets played on the radio 24/7, but the new underground scene of basically spoken word poetry, that gets overlooked by most. I loved the 90′s era for rap because some of the most well known artists from that time are also some of the best word-smiths of all time.
But to bring it back to the here and now, I’ve added a link to a few modern rap songs, as well as a throwback or two, that many of you may not have heard (although I’m sure there must be some people like me out there ;) ). So I hope somebody gives a couple of these a listen, and any comments on them are more than welcome!
I tend to live in the past for my music likes… haven’t really found many newer things that I can connect with. Here’s one of a group of four improvs by (I think) Jerry Garcia for the Zabriskie Point soundtrack… it is pretty relaxing.
