Music SIG Likes #30 :: Poor Man's Poison · 3:02am Dec 11th, 2016

Some delightful folk and bluegrass this time around courtesy of Poor Man's Poison. One of my brothers introduced me to them recently. I am not usually one for this type of music (a bit too much country), but they have certainly grown on me. Mandolin is one of those instruments I enjoy listening to (another is dobro), and Poor Man's Poison has it in spades.

Pirate Metal.

Pirate. Metal. Just take a moment to savour the delicious barminess.

Alsestorm is an interesting combination of power metal with folk metal elements mixed in all wrapped in bombastic pirate-themed theatrics. Never before did I imagine I would ever utter the phrase "heavy-metal accordion".

Something new, apropos of nothing: some blog posts wherein I act my age and slap a bunch of self-indulgent stuff various musical bits and bobs I enjoy listening to up on a public blog post.

At the very least, I figure who reads this may (possibly) discover something new and exciting, or (more likely) have something to laugh at and poke with sticks.

Music SIG Likes #74 :: Infected Mushroom · 3:40am Apr 17th, 2018

This one is quite interesting (for me at least). One of Significant Other's co-workers introduced me to this particular group a few months past, and I must say I am quite impressed. Infected Mushroom is primarily a psychedelic trance group with some industrial elements mixed in. Quite interesting if you are into that sort of thing...

Music SIG Likes #16 :: Great Big Sea · 2:51am May 17th, 2016

Great Big Sea was a Canadian folk rock band who performed modern rock interpretations of traditional Canadian folk songs and sea shanties. They were one of the first folk bands I ever really listened to. Oddly enough, they were recommended to by a complete stranger who I struck up a conversation with in an airport restaurant of all places (hi David!).

"Someday Soon" is one of my all-time favourite songs.

Music SIG Likes #5 :: Slaid Cleaves · 8:37pm Feb 6th, 2016

More folk music!

I never heard of Slaid Cleaves before stumbling upon him through Pandora, but I am glad I did. Some of his works shades uncomfortably too close to country (:pinkiesick:), but overall, I enjoy his singing.

Some more of that delicious electro swing. Energetic, upbeat, and just plain fun to listen to (at least to my ears). You know that saying "Dance as though no one can see you"? That is me listening to this.

Music SIG Likes #12 :: Mark Knopfler · 2:26am Mar 24th, 2016

Some classic blues rock with a dash of country and a hint of Celtic rock mixed in for flavour. Mark's voice is absolutely delicious and the smooth guitar riffs are like sonic velvet. The one or two older chappies and chappettes who may stumble across this post are probably sagely nodding and saying "Finally! SIG has stumbled across some Good Taste!".

I am certainly glad I stumbled across and re-discovered him on Pandora.

Music SIG Likes #21 :: Brown Bird · 2:42am Jul 25th, 2016

Brown Bird certainly is/was an interesting band that I have only recently discovered. Some more folk music, lightly seasoned with a dash of Americana, a measure of Bluegrass, and a hint of Gypsy. It reminds me a bit of a Bluegrass version of Jason Webley in places. I really love their Bluegrass/Gypsy style of rhythm and beat without the nasty "countrified" twangy nastiness that sneaks into such music...

Music SIG Likes #58 :: The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band · 4:16am Oct 2nd, 2017

I never though I would ever say this, but I think I am beginning to come around to (some) kinds of American Country music. Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band certainly puts a big, fat "+" in the "fun to listen to category". A commenter in one of the videos below mentioned that Reverend Peyton is like "the White Stripes and George Thorogood and Hank Williams put together´╗┐". It is quite apt.

For Anyone Wanting Music to Write to, I'm Making a List on RYM · 2:37am Dec 19th, 2021

I haven't posted anything, but I am working on a few stories. Hopefully it won't take too long to release them, but I take a lot of time, so I'll see, I guess. Either way, as the title says, I'm making a list on RateYourMusic about albums I've found are great to write to. I'll share it here for anyone wanting music to hang in the background while you do that. I'll keep adding to it as I find more music and keep writing. Hope it's useful, here's the list:

Music SIG Likes #33 :: Rob Halford · 3:09am Dec 24th, 2016

What with it being (at time of writing) one day before Christmas, how about come classical Christmas hymns and carols arranged in heavy metal style by Rob Halford of Judas Priest fame?

Music SIG Likes #29 :: Red Sparowes · 3:30am Nov 17th, 2016

Some more of that yummy yummy post-metal/post-rock tasty goodness! Sparowes leans more towards "post-rock" than metal compared with Russian Circles and Pelican. It also shades in to prog-rock territory at times. Still, all in all they are an excellent instrumental band to listen to in the background.

Quite enjoyable to listen to while at work.

Music SIG Likes #46 :: DOROTHY · 4:32am May 9th, 2017

Some hard rock from California today.

DOROTHY has an interesting mix of classic, old-school heavy metal and bluesey rock style. Think "Black Sabbath" + "White Stripes". The lead singer, Dorothy Martin, Has (IMHO) an incredibly energetic and powerful voice that is perfect for this music.

A spot of Country Western + Country Gothic courtesy of my fellow coworkers on the production floor. I am not sure how to describe his music. My vocabulary is woefully lacking (any music buffs got any suggestions?). All I can say is that his music that I have heard sounds like what the picture below looks like (if that makes any sense).

Nick Cave and his band Bad Seeds is something that I have recently (re)discovered thanks to my new co-worker, "Shoe", on the production floor. Been around longer than I (and I will wager most people reading this) have been alive. Really intense and emotional post-punk and gothic rock. Features American Southern Gothic imagery and themes quite heavily.

A bit dark, but quite enjoyable nonetheless.

Music SIG Likes #62 :: Rag'n'Bone Man · 2:41am Nov 5th, 2017

Some soul mixed with a dab of hip-hop this time around. Musically it consists of some very light hip-hop style beats and samples that primarily serve to highlight his incredible (IMHO) voice.

So much emotion! Just listen to Human and Skin below!

Sadly, the rest of the album does not quite have the same emotional weight as Skin and Human, but for a first studio album, it is quite excellent. Here is hoping for more!
