Someone may have already brought this one up, but Jeff Beck at Ronnie Scott's has some really good stuff. This one in particular I like. Great solo by Tal Wilkenfeld.

Hans Zimmer - Time

This song stands the hair on the back of my neck up every time.

Video is time lapse of Yosemite done by a friend of my wife.

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing that.

 

Nice tune I ran across today by the singer of "99 Luftballons": In Mienem Leben (In My Life)

 

(The song is only ~6 minutes long, but the video repeats w/o audio for some reason.)

Me too. Also made me realize how much the soundtrack can make or break a movie.

Pro Guitar Shop sent this out in its regular newletter, a list of female guitarists. This particular just really stuck me. It's a killer tune and she's really good. The genre, I don't even know what you'd call it. It's very atmospheric, synthy and maybe even shoe-gazey? and you can hear bits of early synth pop, some Bjork at points in the vocals, some Portishead maybe. But, anyhoo, it's very cool. And those licks she's throwing off casually while singing in the choruses are not easy. And it's always cool to see see more people play free finger style guitar, since it lends itself to a much different style than pick playing. In this song the guitar almost gives it some King Crimson shades.


This one is really nice as well. Very atmospheric:

And this tune by the Lower Dens is a great low-fi tune. It's go ta great atmosphere to it:

I ran across in the movie "Lola Versus". Indie flicks are pretty good places to find particular atmospheric new music.


And this super-tingly tune by Joan as Policewoman:

And the pretty amazing band, Cocorosie: I think that the radio show host was crying a bit at the end of the firs tone, which mixes all kinds of influences together.

A more conventional but still cool song by them:

I really like all those Dean. I like to turn off the TV and put this stuff on low and just mill about the house picking up parts of everything. Pandora station created.

I'd like to suggest another estrogen increasing artist that is getting a lot of play in my house due to Studio Ghibli and their Secret World of Arrietty. I can't help but lilt around like a girl.

That's a nice one. I assume you are aware of Joanna Newsom? She's sort of the pop Pied Piper of the harp:



It's very easy to dismiss it when you first hear it, because it's so childlike. But listen to what she's saying, and it really grows on you. Try working 'irrevocably' into a song.


And this stupidly infectious tune by Joan as Police Woman:

I should not have google image searched Joan As Policewoman. Armpit hair.

BTW, she was Jeff Buckley's girlfriend as well, and I think that Eternal Flame tune might be at least partly about him.

Interesting. Jeff is one of the "gone too soon" ones. We were in Memphis the week he died. Which leads to me to think of Lucinda Williams for some reason.

Depeche Mode's In Your Room (album version)

…emphasis on the album version because none other can match this quality. Dave Gahan's haunting voice, Martin Gore's haunting music… Haunting timeless song smile.gif One of their best hands own. Hard to believe it came out 20 years ago eek.gifredface.gif

I've been a Depeche Mode fan since the beginning. It's nice to see that after all these years, they're still experimenting on their latest albums, they don't care about being commercial or not (they probably have enough money for this luxury anyway wink.gif), they just want to make something different and interesting. And they're still playing in packed stadiums. Long live DM! smile.gif

…They started in their twenties - comparing the craftmanship and creativity behind their music in 1980 to what Bieber comes up with in 2013 almost hurts.

Wow; he actually comes up with that garbage too? Just assumed it was written for him.

Right now listening to The Glorious Dead album by The Heavy.
