since music consumes about eight-five percent of my life, i thought i would start a new thread that we can talk about the new music we're into.

without a doubt, the best band i discovered last year was Need To Breath. their two albums have been on constant repeat since i saw them open for third day and are probably my second favorite christian band right now after david crowder. you can just hear the enjoyment they are having making music in every single song and there seems to be no effort at all in creating great slightly southern rock tracks. plus they were awesome live, even breaking into some rolling stones.

in non-christian music, i've been listening to the paprika soundtrack all day. it's totally keeping me awake.

I picked up a few goodies this year, DecembRadio, Thrice. But none have me hooked as Demon Hunter. Great stuff. I'm not a metal/screaming fan by any means, and their later stuff doesn't have as much as their first cd, but I love this group. I have my cd changer loaded with them and I haven't listened to anyone else in months. If you're not into the style, read the lyrics, great stuff.

She & Him are great. "Sweet Darlin'" is set as the ringtone when my wife calls.

Here is something for you who needs to get some other sounds....

A Midwinter Night`s Dream - Loreena McKennitt.(Canada, world music/religious)
The siren and the sage - Anne Marie Almedal (Norwegian)
Inside I`M SINGING - Secret Garden (Norwegian, musical/classical/Irish)
The Chase - Marit Larsen (Norwegian, popmusic)
At first Light - Silje Nergaard (Norwegian, Jazz, and our answer to Diana Krall)
Betty Blue (37,2 Le Martin) - Gabriel Yared (French, film music)
Beyond Words - Bobby McFerrin (USA, Jazz)
Changing Of The Seasons - Ane Brun (Norwegian Jazz)
Fingertips and Mountaintops - Darren Hanlon (Australia I think, Pop-thing)
God If I Saw Her Now - Tom Hell (Norwegian (together with Marit Larsen, they did not hear each others records when working on them)(and yes his name sounds strange, just as you know it; Hell is a place in Norway and has nothing to do with this one --> :devil:) (Hi sounds like Paul McCartney)
Le Fabuleux Destin d`Amèlie Poulain - Yann Tiersen (French, Filmmusic)
Wayfaring Stranger: A Spirutal Songbook - Kristin Asbjørnsen (Norwegian, Spirutal)

Two albums for the wake up call: :sleep:
O Brother, Where Art Thou? - DIV. (USA, film music) Why; they start the first song by hitting rocks.
Ocean`s Eleven - The Percy Faith Orcestra (USA, filmmusic) Why; they start the first track by saying "God morning" and goes over to running Jazz.)


And, I have also made the website for a great Norwegian singer, Helene Bøksle, you can hear some of her songs on the site: www.heleneboksle.no click on musikk and then song on Morild. Or search on her name on the youtube to see her performance.

Yeah that Oh Brother Where Art Thou? is one of the classics at my house.

First I'd like to mention that my wife, Katreen, is a beautiful singer. She's had a nicely done demo album since 2005— and to my shame I'm just getting around to doing a cover for it now. Then I will attempt to get some of the tracks out online. I'll keep you posted.

This year I've found a lot of great music on Air 1 and Pandora. Some great bands I've gotten into are:
Xavier Rudd
Dispatch
State Radio
Ray LaMontagne

The overwhelming vibe of this music is folksy, acoustic, with meaningful lyrics. But they're all current.

You guy's have got to check out libera, particularly the song "stay with me."

It's an amazing british boys choir that sound like angels.

libera sounds great! almost every one of their songs are streaming for free on their myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/liberaofficial

"stay with me" is a cover of something, am i right? relaxing stuff.

it's been a while so i should list some of what i've been in to lately:

the new animal collective is the first great album of the year in my humble opinion. i've also been enjoying ra ra riot, the weepies, ingrid michaelson and the fray.

Definitely give it a listen, there is no standout here like Holy Wars or Tornado of Souls but it's a very solid album start to finish, and Chris Broderick brings some great lead playing to the table.

Very few people use the term heavy metal to refer to those old bands anymore though anyhow, the term applies to the throwback bands these days but also to the genre as a whole. It's definitely interesting how the genre become much more extreme and much more expansive, with the rise of thrash and the first roots of death and black metal in the 80s, the explosion of melodeath in the 90s, the rise of all the hardcore influenced bands and the explosion of progressive and avante garde stuff in the 00s.

Have you guys checked out the EPs (Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer) that came out about a year ago from Jon Foreman (lead singer of Switchfoot)? Whether you like that band or not, they are really worth a listen. Much more mellow musically with a great variety of sounds... some tracks remind me a bit of Sufjan Stevens. And lyrically, some of the most encouraging, and yet challenging, stuff he has written yet. I've really listened to it a ton over the last year, and I highly recommend it.

Anyway, you can listen to some of the tracks here.
