Music suggestions, PLEASE!

I'm bored with all my music right now- I need something new! I'm not much for metal or anything too hard, but I'll listen to pretty much anything else... good lyrics are nice. Help me out, all! You'll have my everlasting gratitude. :)

All this generation likes are oxymoronic lyrics sung by a whiney singer to focus their attention off of the 4 notes that are played for the entirety of the song. It's garbage. If you're gunna be in music you should know how to play. Case and point: Jimi Hendrix - couldn't sing a lick but still a damn good musician.

That makes no sense, Shine. Lyrics are half of what is music.

You're telling me that you want masterful guitar playing, and meaningless dribble sung to it?

hi-fi gods

I second Apollo Sunshine.

They were swell live.

Some of my recent favorite songs:
Amusement Parks on Fire - "Blackout"
The Twilight Singers - "Bonnie Brae"
Augustana - "Boston"
Girls in Hawaii - "Flavor"
Any song by Rufus Wainwright.

Have you ever read the lyrics of any classic rock song? The lyrics are terrible. Obviously good lyrics would help any given song but I still think they're overrated. It's definitely not half of what is music. Ever hear of instrumentals? Those aren't music?

Yes, Neutral Milk Hotel has great lyrics. Start with On Avery Island.

Also, right now I'm enjoying Blacklisted by Neko Case.

If you dig on jazz/rap hybrid insanity, try some MC900 Ft Jesus.
The one-man band Okay; they've got a sample on the record label Absolutely Kosher's site.

Emily, I saw Mates of State live on Thursday (with Sound Team and Death Cab for Cutie).. talk about a hell of a performance. Mates of State is one of the best live bands I've seen all summer.

hi-fi gods

jazz/rap hybrid?

I think you're refering to Trip-Hop.

Katie_ladie

AHHHH SAME NAME!

weird

karm

Possibly? The review I read before hearing them referred to "jazz/rap" so I just went with that. Either way it's the goodness.

From what I've heard of Mates of State, they're pretty good. They even did a live cover of "Crazy", I believe.

Yo La Tengo's I Can Feel The Heart Beating As One is kicking my rear at this very moment in time. "Spec Bebop" is the goodness.
