Here is an idea I had. As an effort to discuss new music and look forward to the future of music with optimism, I say we do a chain of new album/song recommendations. It goes like this, one person posts an album/song from this decade, and if you decide to listen to a little bit of it, post your thoughts below and then recommend a new artist or album or whatever. If you like it or not, just get the discussion going.

Ill start: my favorite album of this decade is Mipso's Dark Holler Pop. It is great folk songwriting. Here is a song from that album:

Do they have to be albums/songs from this decade?

I was thinking it would be used to get newer music in the spotlight, but It can be anything that you think people would be into and haven't heard. It doesn't need to be completely unheard of or anything.

I liked that Mipso's Dark Holler Pop @owenladner I could imagine Paul Simon singing it.  This is one of my favourite albums of recent times and one I think will go down as a classic (though I realise Beck is not everyone's cup of tea)....Morning Phase

Only in a sense. In one of the pages (i'd find the post, but I don't remember any of the key-words.) it was decided that it wasn't really a "game", more of a growing-of-musical-taste thread.

I still don't know about this thread though, it feels like the same thing except with a musical generation limit.

@Evangeline Its different from Turn it up/turn it down because that game is more meant to discover other member's musical taste, whereas this thread is made for all members to discover music of today.

@Leppo I liked Beck after watching him induct Lou Reed into the RRHOF, but I could never find any of his original music that I liked. I guess I was looking in the wrong place, because that song is pretty damn good. I heard that he is like Prince and Paul, where he plays all instruments on his albums.

Another artist like that is Tame Impala, which has a modernized old school sound.

@Evangeline Turn it Up/Down is more simple, where as this thread may become more in depth and analytical, as opposed to just like/dislike.

This is a really nice thread idea since new music is so often derided only because it's new. So, first I have to say that I really like the band you presented @sir walter raleigh. I have listened to Tame Impala's album Lonerism and there are some great tracks on it like for example Elephant, Nothing that has happened so far has been anything we could control (cool title, isn't it?), and, above all, Sun's coming up. Additionally, the singer sometimes sounds a tiny little bit like John for a few seconds (I had this impression at the beginning of Elephant).a-hard-days-night-john-6

Another band which takes its inspiration from different genres of rock music in the twentieth century is Cage The Elephant. I put two songs from their album Tell Me I'm Pretty in spoilers though their other three albums are good as well.

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

Sounds kind of like a slightly more alternative Clash on the first track. Not bad at all. For something a little (or s lot) funkier, try Vulfpeck.

Not really that big into modern music although the above selections aren't that bad, can't think of a good recommendation unless if you want me to recommend you guys albums from the 60's and 70's.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

I found a pretty cool song by an artist called Bleachers.

Most will have written them off as pop nonsense after the big singles 'Stressed Out' and 'Heathens' but I highly recommend you check out the 2009 self titled album by Twenty One Pilots. If you like John's Plastic Ono Band, it's very much in the same vein - honest, brutal yet poetic lyrics and simple instrumentation with basically piano, bass and drums.

'Tourist History' by Two Door Cinema Club is a fantastic indie rock album. 

I know the first one isn't this decade but it's close enough. 

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.
