As you know, I have a new iPod. (No, this is not another gloating entry.)
I have also had for a while now an eMusic account.
I have no facility, however, for keeping up with the music the kids are listening to these days, particularly that indie scene that seems to exist just beneath my radar. (Which might, of course, be intentional, as I’m well into the realm of those Hoffman said not to trust.)
Anyhow, here’s what I’m seeking: suggestions of bands I might like. The genies at eMusic keep recommending the same stuff to me over and over again, and I want something new. Here’s a quick list of a few things I’ve snagged that I’ve really liked:
Cat Power, You Are Free
The Decemberists, Castaways and Cutouts
Apples in Stereo, Fun Trick Noisemaker
Belle and Sebastian, If You’re Feeling Sinister
I’ve also gotten turned on to The Notwist, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Sarge. So who else should I be listening to?
