    We have a movies thread, we have a book thread, but nowhere to discuss music? :shock: Hence, this thread. Here can be discussed what you've been listening to, you could share a song or perhaps show something you're working on. As long as it's related to music obviously. xixixi

    Lately I've started listening to the techno music I listened to back in High School (before it was cool, yeah yeah, I know I'm an elitist hipster).

    definitely one of my favorites from that time was Miles of Love

    People who've read my posts outside of DHWs will probably know how much I dig Glass Tiger. They recorded three albums before disbanding. The last one - Simple Mission - never made it to America. That didn't stop their albums from selling well overseas, though; each release would literally sell a million copies more than its predecessor.

    Band of Gypsies by Jimi Hendrix has become an album I listen to a lot lately. It's less experimental compared to his previous albums but has a funk-rock vibe that I really like. It's a live album which fits Hendrix perfectly as he's at his best once he melts together with his guitar on stage.

    Another album that I love at the moment is Low by David Bowie. I had never really listened to Bowie apart from some of his hits, probably because his music was often described as Avant-Gardistic, which kind of scares me off (because in my mind Avant-Garde equals really weird and twisted). But it's really great, from the moment Speed of Life started I knew this would be an album I really like.

    My Wife was an exchange student to Canada in the late 80's for a year when in High School and heard about them. When we met she kept telling me about this band called Glass Tiger that I'd never heard of, their music had never made it Australia.
    She played me some of her LP's and I quite liked them, I thought for a long time there she was the only on the planet who still remembered them!

    IIRC, their first album got release in North America, Canada, and the UK.

    In the U.S., the first album (Thin Red Line) went gold; the second album - however - didn't come close. :(

    I first heard this song back in May of last year and lately it's been on my mind a lot lately. The Kills - DNA

    I first heard it from the Indie Rock Playlist April 2011 Edition.

    Well, I listened to some CDs I've bought over the past few months, and some irritated me, like the greatest hits collection of Whitesnake. It included the album recording of "Here I Go Again", not the radio version, which I thought was vastly superior. So I tracked down the radio version online last night, on an MP3.

    Tricob, from what I've seen in this thread you quite enjoy 80's rock! I think you'll really enjoy Barney Stinson's 'Get Psyched' list:

    I certainly do! :D

    Apart from that, listening a lot to Fleetwood Mac lately, mainly their 1975 album 'Fleetwood Mac', 'Rumours' and 'Tusk'. :good:
