Recently (aka the past few months), I've been listening to Rusty Cage. Here's a few of his songs:

He's also known for making really weird songs about popular stuff/trends. Such as this one when fidget spinners were a thing:

 

"Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end" - John Lennon

Just continuing my promotion of unknown soundcloud artists. This is an original song which when I listen to it I can really imagine John Lennon singing circa 1964 - particularly on the chorus. It's recorded roughly but it's a great bit of songwriting.

I've always loved the song All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey, but I hadn't heard the rest of the album until I recently borrowed it from the library, and it's now my second favorite Christmas album (nothing can beat A Christmas Gift For You).

A great new surf punk band from Australia with some upbeat tunes. The kind of thing you show people who claim rock is dead.

Some really weird but fun jazz piano music

I had an amazing experience recently, on my ongoing adventure to try to acquaint myself with music I never knew before or thought I wouldn't like.  I asked my friend who is more versed in the history of rock music (I'm more of a folk-pop jazz person) for recommendations, and he sent me Van Halen's delightful cover of "Big Bad Bill".  I looked up the original songwriters and saw that they were old school, from like the 1930s, Milton Ager and Jack Yellen. Curious, I Googled them, and learned that they wrote "Ain't She Sweet " covered so well by the early Beatles. I then searched for other covers of that song, and saw that Pearl Bailey had done it. At that point, my eye alighted on a song title I'd known for years but never really listened to -- "Little Green Apples". This then led me to the great Ethel Waters who, like Mt. Rushmore, I had only known from afar; so on a whim I thought I'd delve deeper.  I found a video of Ethel singing "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" live before a vast stadium back in the 70s when she was already quite old.  I was blown away by the beauty of it.

I've discovered a lot of new artists over the past few months.
(Yes, it's time for a list.)

Billy Idol. (A lot of good songs, his voice reminds me a little bit of Elvis's, if Elvis was around in the 80's.)

The Cars. (Good tunes and interesting arrangements, (Moving In Stereo). Definitely will explore them beyond greatest hits albums.paul-mccartney-thumb_gif )

Talking Heads. (I only know a few of their songs, but I like what I've heard. I mean, Psycho Killer is friggin' awesome. heart )

Eurythmics. (Awesome band, Annie Lennox is a very good vocalist.)

Red Hot Chili Peppers. (Like Talking Heads, I've heard their more popular songs.)

Thanks for mentioning The Cars, Evangeline, I'm just listening to some of their hits and like them a lot, especially the percussion.

Some new artists I've discovered recently (mainly in the Turn it up or down thread):

- Robin Trower (he's got a great guitar sound with many layers and different sorts of distortion)

- Greatful Dead (The first album I've heard of them was 'under the covers' which only features, well, covers. That was enough to blow my mind. They have it all: great harmony singing, psychedelic keyboard, rocking guitars, and sometimes even funky tightness. Great band!)

- MX-80 Sound (Haven't heard too much by them yet, only a couple of songs but those I almost all really dug. Again, the guitar sound is great as it is so raw. I like it most when there was also a saxophone and it plays so raw that the borders between saxophone sound and guitar sound dissolve. Generally, I find the similarities between a jazz sound on saxophone and distorted guitar quite fascinating)

And my favourite new discovery:

- Kevin Ayers (Whatevershebringswesing is my absolute favourite album by him, I love it to bits. Seldom have I heard an album with an instrumentation that diverse and well-implemented. Though the first track is somewhat intimidating, just a warning )

The following people thank Martha for this post:

Beatlebug, Von Bontee

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I discovered a new artist -- well, new to me. He's been recording music since the early 80s, but I didn't know about him until 3 days ago.  I kept noticing this commercial that plays on various websites as I surf around, often it comes up on YouTube. I forget the product, I think Apple, and they have this plaintive older female voice singing this melody that made me wonder, is that an old standard from the 40s maybe?  So I typed one line of the lyrics in Google and I learned that it's from a song by Daniel Johnston. 

The Wikipedia entry on Daniel Johnston is interesting:

Daniel Dale Johnston (born January 22, 1961) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, and visual artist who is regarded as a significant figure in outsider, lo-fi, and alternative music scenes. Most of his work consists of cassettes he recorded alone in his home, and his music is frequently cited for its "pure and childlike soul".

Johnston has spent extended periods of his life in psychiatric institutions and has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and manic depression. He gathered a local following in the 1980s by passing out tapes of his music while working at a McDonald's in Austin, Texas. His cult status was propelled when Nirvana's Kurt Cobain was seen wearing a T-shirt that featured artwork from Johnston's 1983 album Hi, How Are You.

[end quote]

I looked up that 1983 album and am about 1/3 of the way through. I like it; it's a bit strange, a bit weird, and oddly low-key and childlike, but he definitely had a streak of talent.

Love Daniel Johnston, @Pineapple Records.

I was pointed his way in the '80s when an early tape included his song about The Beatles that was called The Beatles...

He's so unpolished it's almost funny; but he definitely has talent, and he fills a vacuum in the music industry. Somebody had to come along and be this radically awkward. I've been listening to his album "Fun" -- there are a couple of more "ordinary" rock songs on there that are quite good.

There's a very moving documentary film, @Pineapple Records, called The Devil and Daniel Johnston.

Well worth a watch. and one of the most illuminating explorations of mental illness I've seen...

Thanks Ron, I've noticed that as I've been Googling him. I'll definitely look that up.

Some of my favourite albums I've listened to recently:

Digable Planets - Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space) - laid back, non aggressive 90s hip hop with some great Blue Note samples and interplay between male/female rappers. 

John Coltrane - Both Directions at Once -  A 'lost album' of Coltrane that's just been released properly for the first time non bootlegged. 

Anna Von Hausswolff - Dead Magic - Atmospheric singer/songwriter ambient played on a church organ. Spine chilling stuff. 

Ô Paon - Fleuve - Another ambient-ish folky listen, this time in French. If anybody's aware of Phil Elverum and his bands The Microphones and Mount Eerie, Ô Paon is the project of his late wife, Genevieve Castree, who sadly passed away in 2016 and inspired Phil's heartbreaking albums 'A Crow Looked At Me' and 'Distortion'.
