Bizaro, I'd try some of these:

Metal: Mastodon, Baroness, Trivium, Protest the Hero, All that Remains
Hard Rock: The Damned Things, Them Crooked Vultures, Black Keys maybe?
Garage/Punk/Indie with punk leanings: Japandroids, Hot Water Music, Titus Andronicus, ****ed up, Fang Island

Re: 2012 Music Thread

Can anyone suggest good local community/music radio stations worth checking out?

Locally I listen mainly to PBS and RRR, which are Melbourne community stations with a great range of shows mainly spanning particular types of music and the arts.

Sometimes they both suck simultaneously though, so looking for similar stations to put on the tunein.com rotation when I'm at work.

Cheers. Weird to click the link and see Gotye on the front page. He's blown up pretty big in the US as well then yeah? Wouldn't have picked it, but I guess evocative lyrics will take you a long way...

Always liked this track of his from a few years ago.

Also, for music from 2012 I think the Perfume Genius album someone mentioned above is really good and surprised to see few or no mentions of it before that post. Following up the machismo of Kvelertak with this gayness:

Wow as that musical genre goes, this is AWESOME

Sounds a lot like Bon Iver? Still excellent

I was wondering if Gui Boratto had put anything good out recently. Question answered. Track of the week for me!

Re: 2012 Music Thread

Did a search and haven't seen anyone mention the band Spector yet.

Perhaps a bit derivative, with a bit of Franz Ferdinand, Raveonettes, Jesus & Mary Chain, and Pains of Being Pure at Heart... but they're pretty fun.

Re: 2012 Music Thread

so i know it was posted in here a while ago but 'Lady' is my fav track off the Chromatics album. loving that song.

liking a few others. tbh could do without some of their songs (most of the instrumental ones).

i'd be so happy if the whole 4 minutes of silence before a bonus track at the end of an album stopped being a thing

Tortoise - Salt the Skies

At 0:58-1:09 they have a riff there that's reminiscent of something... what does it remind me of (kid's song, carol, religious song (hymn?))?

2012 is terrible so far except for some electronic (dance) music and a few other gems.

LOTUS PLAZA is good.

What a killer voice. (You probably have heard another LP song, Into the Woods during that citibank commercial that's on TV all the time)

Re: 2012 Music Thread

great album, as always. uwe schmidt ftw.

Quote:
At this point in his career, and with more pseudonyms then anyone can be rightly expected to keep track of, you'd be forgiven for being a bit blasé about the work of Uwe Schmidt. Gone are the days back in the late 90's and early noughties when pretty much every month saw a new Scmidt alter ego appear on his own Rather Interesting imprint, eventually leading to huge commercial success under the Senor Coconut guise and headline appearances at numerous music festivals. The output started to slow down, restricted to a number of new recordings and collaborations for various labels, as well as older ambient works reissued by Fax and Sahko, and ACID tracks revived by Logistic - before his most substantial release as Atom ™, 'Liedgut', appeared on the Raster Noton label a couple of years ago. Substantial not so much in length (the album clocked in at 35 minutes) - but more in its coherence and intention, returning to a conceptual recording process which has always found Schmidt producing his finest work. "Winterreise" is a follow-up of sorts, also for Raster Noton, this time clocking in at just under an hour and producing, without doubt, Schmidt's most beautiful material in years. Conceptually, both Raster albums connect with the work of Schubert (there are, apparently, fragments, notes, chord samples used sparingly through the recordings), with the album serving as a soundtrack to a series of photographs taken by Schmidt in 2010 during a tour of Europe (postcards of which are included inside the typically lavish Raster packaging). In the lastest issue of The Wire, Schmidt says of these recordings: "…i realised that all the textures i was making for the album had a romantic feeling…heavy and melancholy, but not sad...I realised it's because I used that millisecond of Schubert, and it turned into an oscillator for a texture - and I found that very interesting". The result is an almost continuous series of tracks that contain many Atom Heart signatures - tricky, complex production, recurring motifs, a pristine aesthetic - but never at the expense of the pervading atmosphere. The end result is genuinely absorbing and sublime, creating a mysterious trip through re-contextualised classicism and ambience that somehow manages never to sound forced. It tugs at your heartstrings without ever resorting to any obvious or self-indulgent arrangements, instead utilising a kind of semi-opaque compositinal style that has you lost in a haze of nostalgia before its end, leaving you with little recollection of how you got there. Beautiful music - a real treat for longtime Atom Heart fans and newcomers alike.
