This one's for you ogged. I'm going to re-post the same thing that I said in B-Ware's* thread, but it's something I think you'll like.

I haven't been listening to much music lately** (sadly) but the CT thread got me thinking about Leyla McCalla again, because Belle would like it, and which got me to this video of her performing which is honestly one of the best things I've listened to in ages. I've listened to it a couple of times yesterday and today and I find it beautiful, emotional, calming, and deeply satisfying.

* I hadn't thought about that combination of first initial, and first sylable of last name until now, but isn't it better than "B-wa"?

** Though I do have one other thing that's been stuck in my head lately, but I'll wait until later in the thread for that.

Lizzo, "Good as Hell"

I figure if I keep singing along with it, it might start to feel true.

(I recommend ignoring the video, actually)

After countless listens, this for me has never gotten old.

Could we make this thread happen? I could use some musical recommendations.

Lately I am listening to Brian Eno's Another Green World, which is extremely soothing. I had tried to listen to some of his stuff earlier, but started with the ambient stuff and Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy, which are not good intro points - the one is dull unless you're into that kind of thing and the other is frenetic enough that it's not good for me at the moment. But seriously, Another Green World is really a beautiful, beautiful album. If you have not had much luck with Eno generally, I would suggest listening to "Golden Hours" and "St Elmo's Fire" to start.

Also, you know what has held up well? My old college favorite, Lungfish's Rainbows from Atoms. It was one of my Greyhound albums - I'd play it loudly over and over and half doze. There are not many of those very loud, buzzy, metaphorical lyrics punk albums that still seem well-observed and smart when you're forty two and not nineteen. Also, usually those buzzy punk albums by, like, intense white dudes seem awfully dude-centric and kind of banal after a while, but again, this one has held up really well! It has one of the really great punk songs about mothering (or the guy's mother, I don't know anything about this album except that I know literally every word by heart), "Mother Made Me". (The other one is Exene Cervenka's (and I know she's a terrible person now) "Come Back To Me", which is about her mother's death.

My weekend plans - in addition to lots of chores - involve Before and After Science and whatever Lungfish album came out after Rainbows from Atoms. The main Lungfish guy is ridiculously prolific, something I did not realize until recently.

I'll post what I was going to post in Belle's thread(s), but didn't.
I've been listening to Neil Cicierega's new(is his) album. Sample track here.

I was also going to mention on her Beatles remaster thread that someone laid down Wu-Tang over Beatles tracks, mostly cover versions, which I'm not listening to that much, mainly because he did the same thing with Jimi Hendrix and I like it way more.

My brother's been really into Beulah lately. I haven't listened to them enough to feel like I know them, but what he's played for me has sounded good.

Spoiler: link in 6 is the Go-Betweens' "Part Company" from Spring Hill Fair, which is indeed a good album and song, although I play Before Hollywood most. (And "Was There Anything I Could Do?" from 16 Lovers' Lane -- "I don't know where she's living/ All I got is a card/ A picture of her at the pyramids/ A knife held to her heart...")

Heavy rotation for me currently is the odd pairing of the new Spoon record (best track; also good) and the new Rhiannon Giddens record (here is "Julie" live).

As part of my attempt to forge a common ground with all Americans, I'm listening to nothing the The Oak Ridge Boys, Taylor Swift, and polka.

And Neil Diamond. Can't forge a common ground across class, race, and age without Neil Diamond.

Are the ground forges structurally connected to the steel mines?

Schubert, who I somehow never realized was so good, the new Mountain Goats (yes, fantastic), stray minimal electronic music-- Feathered Sun. Steve Earle.

I spent the last couple of weeks trying to familiarize myself with Iron Maiden's output over the past 20 years ehn I had stopped listening to their new stuff. A couple good albums out of the 10 or so, but even those lacked the passion and bombast of their first 6 or 7. Still, the songs from the most recent album worked surprisingly well on stage last night with three(!) guitarists playing in harmony and taking turns on solos/riffs. But the real winners were the classics from the 80s.

Also still listening to a fair amount of Sound post-Chris Cornell's death. They were *so good* in their prime.

Last, I've been exploring the deeper catalog of Stiff Little Fingers. My conclusion so far is that there is a reason that the hits were hits and the rest weren't, but even the not-great stuff is perfectly listenable 80s Brit punk.

Abigail Washburn mentioned Lau on a recent podcast and I've been getting really into them.

18.last I'm a big SLF fan but that's a fair assessment. Also the best cover of Marley's Johnny Was.

I saw SLF a couple of times. They were a good thrash, but one song tended to be very like another.
