Listening to Beach House...easily a top 5 artist I've heard in the last year or so (probably been a year and a half at this point).

Would highly, highly suggest them. I know I've posted some of their stuff in here before.

@Thimmy: I like it Thumbs up

Good indie, upbeat music.

Enjoy CB! First heard St Vincent a few months ago, quite good though I haven't listened to the whole album yet.

I'm excited. The first of many, I'm sure...if I like the experience, which I'm sure I will.

I'm not even the biggest fan, I just recently heard her...and I like her, but I've heard a couple different artists recently I'm even more fans of, but someone asked me if I wanted to go, and I said sure.

I know him, but not so well. We have really similar music tastes, so we communicate back and forth about music, and he's dating a woman I've gotten to be good friends with, but I just met him first late last year, and I'm not very good friends with him. I ordinarily would say no, I thought it would be weird...going down 1 and a bit more hours down to Milwaukee and back and watching a concert with him, but I decided to not take the safe option this time. It will be a great experience hopefully and a good way to get to know someone better, and maybe a lasting friendship can come about.

I'll let you guys know how it goes, and chances are I'll come back with some new stuff in the days after that we listened to.

Ohh I forgot to say. It was absolutely amazing. Such a great experience, I'm sooo glad I went. Definitely will take other opportunities in the future to go see concerts, and I would go see St. Vincent again if she were ever in the area. The guy I was with has been to a couple concerts, so he has a bit of perspective, and he said it was crazy, and that for a first concert I'm unlikely to see much better. He wanted to see it partially because NPR music said she was one of the best shows at south by southwest (music festival) and it's clear why they said so.

It was in this old style ballroom with a large floor and a stage at one end. We got there pretty early so we were fairly close. St. Vincent sounds great in the studio, but sounds even better live, and the energy she had was incredible, and made an electric atmosphere. Amazing guitar player, too. Did a lot of improv guitar stuff that you don't hear in the studio versions.

Anyway, it was awesome. If St.Vincent is in your area, even if you only half like her stuff, I would recommend seeing her. I wasn't even a huge fan of her before the concert, I liked her stuff, but didn't love it, but I really enjoyed it.

Really glad you had a great time CB!

Incidentally I also went to see a concert last night and I had a very similar experience. I went to see Kodaline, an Irish band, play at the Prince bandroom and unlike Temper Trap, this was a very small, intimate environment and we were only a few metres away from the band and you really got to appreciate their stage presence, audience interaction and talent as a live band. They had a fantastic rapport with the crowd, as evidenced by their acoustic encore which included the audience in the performance.

Unbelievably loud though, the issue with being so close to a band is that your hearing is permanently damaged within the first ten minutes of the concert. Laughing We arrived too late to see much of the supporting act, the Trouble with Templeton, but just looking through some of their songs they seem quite decent.

Ahh Kodaline, very nice. I was probably a bit farther back than a couple meters, but not more than that. Also worth mentioning is that she did a tribute to Nirvana, playing Lithium as one of the last songs-- it was amazing. I'm glad as well to hear you had a good time.

Whenever I have a choice to get out of my comfort zone and do something different, even if I'm on the edge with it...and I choose to do so, I've always been rewarded. Life is funny like that.

Anyway, here is a good song by the singer of Bright Eyes, Conor Oberst.

Conor Oberst - Hundreds of Ways:

Wish this thread would get a bit more exposure and participation, but I guess I've been slacking lately, too. Will have to get on that, I guess!

Some stuff from the band of the singer I just mentioned, Bright Eyes.

First Day of My Life - Bright Eyes:

This next song is very sad, and would be great to listen to in the right mood...anyway, I find it a fantastic song. Very powerful...Conor Oberst has exactly the type of voice to pull off a song like this.

Land Locked Blues - Bright Eyes:

This next song is along the same lines.

Poison Oak - Bright Eyes:

Spoiler:

Warning for the Kiddies, that is their real band name.

Love the acoustics of this track. Heard it first on one of the episodes of the Blacklist.

Milk Carton Kids - Michigan:

Milk Carton Kids - Hear Them Loud:

Hope the second of two isn't a re-post. These guys are so good though. Amazing indie folk duo. They aren't particularly unknown (receiving a grammy nomination in the past for best folk album), but they are indie and they certainly are brilliant. I've heard some of their stuff before but never delved deep into them, but tonight I listened to their full album Ash and Clay and part of Prologue and was stunned by how good they are.

If you're into folk, these guys are one of the best groups out there today as far as I'm concerned.

This song is fantastic, and the artist worth listening to. Jake Bugg is also an amazing artist too.

It's been too long since I've posted stuff in here, so I promise to start occasionally hitting this thread up with some new stuff (y).

What better way to kickstart such an occasion with a single off of Sufjan Stevens' new album "Carrie and Lowell"? This song is beautiful, and the transition in the middle of the song is absolutely incredible to me--both stylistically and the way in which it is executed.

I've been hearing a lot of good things about this new album, and I've heard the first couple songs and love it. I look forward to hearing the rest. I'll probably put out some older Sufjan stuff too since I've gotten into him not too long ago (after knowing I should have for over a year).



Not indie, but definitely alternative. Either way, worth checking out as I'm delighted to have started listening to him recently.
