I love the recommendations I've got from this forum but I'm not so sure that many people check out new songs/bands. How about this for an idea: The first person recommends a song, then the next person gives their opinion of it and recommends another song. That make sense? I'm really looking forward to hearing your choices. Have fun! Here's mine.....

ok, I like this. The music is a little slick, but reminds me of One Way Or Another, and the singer reminds me of Chrissie Hynde.

of course that says more about me than about this song.

Yeah, I quite liked that. I'd definitely like to hear more of Tegan & sara. Anyone called Tegan is OK in my book. Good choice!

Here's my next one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAS9UbmU3sE

Oh, I like it! :D The video is funny. It kind of reminds me of 'Funny Little Frog' by Belle and Sebastian, but that's probably just me. :o I think the vocals might have to grow on me, though.

Now, my choice:

I love this band, I've been forcing them on people for months, so I want to hear opinions :p

See I love Paris is Burning but my favorite track of hers is either Now Now or Landmines. And I really like those tracks.

Sadly no audio on my work computer so I can't play along yet, but I did want to reiterate St. Vincent's greatness. There's a major shortage of female singers in my music collection so I'm always on the lookout for ones that interest me, and Marry Me is probably the best female-sang album I've heard in a long time (along with Fiona Apple's Extraordinary Machine and Joan As Police Woman's Real Life). The music is weird and wonderful, and her voice is gorgeously expressive.

I shouldn´t comment this, I know, but I like this game very much and is all a temptation to comment , I like Correcto very much, ( but I wonder how they manage to pronounce it in spanish with that RR. :)) , their song "Joni" is played at least twice a day on 6 music


And Bricolage are simply excellent!! thanks for this one.


Thats cool, I think I saw that guy on TV but I can't remember where.

A band you should all hear, Riding The Low:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qe_Fe1dVtaE

Love PTxx.

Riding the Low, are good really, "The truth is all I have" is a good song for a moment I thought about Richard Butler and Psychedelic furs perhaps are my speakers (don´t know) :) or my imagination (most probably)


Here goes my recomendation :

The understudies http://www.myspace.com/wearetheunderstudies

They are playing in London this weekend, so the lucky ones over there go and tell me later.

And 2 bands from my land:

http://www.myspace.com/supersuperjet

These were all tolerable, although they seem to me more like background music, a bit light for my tastes. i liked supersuperjet best.

And heres' my recommendation, one of my favorite songs of ALL TIME...

The Ramones- "Bonzo Goes To Bitburg"
