I just discovered a Mexican pop singer completely by accident tonight -- Natalia Lafourcade.  Never heard of her before tonight.

Phenomenal vocals, and good musical arrangements.

"Azul" ("Blue"):

Vanaprasta-I love them! I stumbled upon them on Spotify when I looked for similar sounding bands to thenewno2 (also a great band). Their album is amazing and they sound amazing live (they don't add effects or even overdubs really so they sound like the studio version when they are performing live)

I wonder if Mith has heard of her...

 

Anyway, it's not that recent, but last year I discovered this band called The Shins. They're pretty good.

Here's the music video for their song "Simple Song." It's an interesting video.

Oh I like that last song!

Hmm I've heard Lightning Bolt by Jake Bugg and could hear it was very 60s inspired so decided to listen to the rest of his debut album, which was quite alright. Very much influenced by Bob Dylan, the Beatles and all.

Also..Jacco Gardner. He's a Dutch artist and he's very inspired by 60s, psychedelic stuff and Syd Barrett and things like that. His album is great imo, really helps me to relax when I'm studying or something.

For the rest I can't really think of any new artists. A lot of the music which has been released lately was quite shitty imo. 

My sister is crazy about a band called Bastille at the moment though. Maybe it's just me but I find their music to be quite boring, lame and depressing. Don't really get the fuss, but they're getting quite popular over here.

Jake Bugg, there was an article about him in my Mojo magazine which I saw this morning (got told off in class for sliding the mag under the desk and not paying attention ahdn_ringo_09). He looks very young but I'm interested, he said that he was/is influenced by 60s bands.

I'm loving the Jake Bugg album. You can hear his influences but they never become overwhelming. Bought it off the back of seeing him perform one song on BBC Breakfast a couple of months ago and certainly wasn't disappointed. Thinking of people you've mentioned as liking before Emily, there's a good chance you'd like him. Not a bad debut from a 19-year-old.

There's a few that tickle my fancy...  they're not new new, but compared to The Beatles, they're within the last 5 or 10 years anyways.  New to me.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

First there is Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros:

There's a Beatles reference in this one. apple01

list=PL83764E60629A0962

list=PL83764E60629A0962

They had a hit on the album called "Home" (or at least it was here) that some people may know.  The album came out in 2009, "Up From Below".  It's a pretty solid album.  They have another one since, but I am terrible with keeping up with the present (probably too busy digging in the past).

 

Then there is Mother Mother.  Only Canadians will likely know this one, they aren't that big.  They're based in Vancouver, so somewhat "local" to me.  I have 2 of their albums, "O My Heart" from 2008, here's a song or 2 or 3 from that one, it's excellent:

list=PL83764E60629A0962&index=15

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....60629A0962

Such Canadian Hipsters, but I love them.  heart

They came out with "Eureka" in 2011, which is excellent.  This is an acoustic version of a song from the album, shows their harmonies.  Very nice.

list=PL83764E60629A0962

Another from "Eureka":

list=PL83764E60629A0962

 

Then on the opposite end of the Spectrum is Das Racist.  They're great.  Examples:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....60629A0962

a-hard-days-night-john-1

 

 

 

 

 

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Sounds good. I'll listen to some of his songs tomorrow and see for myself :)

@LHL  I love Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes! I also like Man on Fire (I think that's what it's called).

So good.  I love their style because it sounds old.. very folky.  heart

Oh I love ''Home'' too! It's being used in an Ikea commercial so it always reminds me of Ikea, which I love <3 And I really like the song too

I'll certainly check out more of their stuff, because I like what I'm hearing.

You guys should hear Tame Impala, it's not very Beatles-alike but their music does sound a lot like 60's and 70's psychedelic movement.

Oh I've heard about them a couple of years ago through an MGMT fan forum (yeah I used to love them) and they are pretty awesome. My favourite radio station also plays one of their songs a lot, but I forgot the title ghehe.

I don't like much new music. I like OLD music that's new to me. On that note...I never liked the Eagles much, but I picked up their Desperado album recently and it's pretty good. Also, I'm expecting to love John Coltrane's The Complete Sun Ship Sessions when I go to pick it up from the post office tomorrow! (Sold by mail-order only, limited to 2000 copies!)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I agree, Jake Bugg is great. Two Fingers is a just a terrific song.

I'm becoming increasingly obsessed with The Smiths, and I've realised that The Fay are much better than I've ever given them credit for.

They're a band too. They're kind of hippie-ish and make electronic rock with psychedelic influences and stuff. Can't really explain it, but good songs to check out are ''Kids'', ''Electric Feel'' and ''Time to pretend''.

Oh, I thought MGMT were the initials of a band :)

Hey I heard "Lightning Bolt" just half an hour ago in HMV while leafing through "The Beatles FAQ"! Could've sworn it was recorded in, like, 1966. Had to go home and Google a lyric to find out who it was and how come I'd never heard of him.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

He's certainly got something. I look forward to seeing what he does next. At the moment I'm enjoying this set he did for the BBC last October a lot. 22 minutes. Seven songs; five originals and two covers. He was still recording the debut at the time, but the buzz around him was growing.
