Music for (8-31)

Finally got the Matt Costa cd's i wanted. i somehow lost the ones i already had on my comp. but anyway i got the albums titled "Songs we sing"(one of my favs the one i know the best) "unfamiliar faces" and "matt costa ep". matt costa is really a great artist, you will really like him if your into people like jack johnson donavin frankenwritter ben harper etc. Matt costa is great but ill be honest he is kind of weird. he has some really good chill talented music and then he has some mega weird stuff so dont let just a few songs turn you away from him. some of my favortites by him are
On Songs we sing:
Yellow taxi
Cold december
sunshine (probably his most famous)
sweet rose
on Unfamiliar Faces
miss magnolia (love this song)
mr. pitiful (like the acoustic version of this way better than the album recording you can find it acoustic on you tube type in matt costa mr. pitiful kfog archives
on Matt costa Ep
movin on
It suprise me how steathily he is "twangy" like i was saying about norman blake a few posts back im tellin you you have no idea how much of this twangy bluegrass stuff is showin up in music and you would be suprised how much you can appreciate it. Not sure i posted this name or track but if you like matt costa you will like the song me and julio down by the school yard by paul simon on negotiations and love songs. great track that just popped into my head but also on the more serious songs like astair matt costa does that is sort of like a beautiful lullaby paul simon aslo has those on the same album try something so right and st. judy's commet. both GREAT songs and they fit really well in the same ball park as matt costas lullaby style songs. again if you want to hear any of these songs just youtube them.

aslo on this same tagent of music i just barley ripped strait from you tube the album oh mighty engine by Neil Halstead. I heard neil halstead at the jack johnson concert like the opening show for the people who were opening for the people who were opening for jack johnson haha so yeah totally small artist pretty sure he is super underground still (could be wrong considering i dont know the radio trends very well) but yeah i was probably the only one listening to him while he played and i remember really likin it he was just him himself playin acoustic and it was really good. anyway i couldnt find any of his albums on my UK websites or even on any "other" websites the only place i could find him was youtube so yeah. i think he is from england. ANYWAY his music is really good i would check out his albums. The thing about him is is he really is the chillest artist i have ever heard.. ever. infact i thought i would never say this but maybe to chill. these songs would be like sick for a bonfire. but MAJOR MELLOW music but yeah here are some of my favorites from the album oh mighty engine
On oh might engine
baby i grew you a beird
oh mihgy engine
and many more but yeah check him out for sure this totally seems like something justin nickle would like so susy if you actually read these tell him or i will when i see him in a week ha

Music for (8-31)

As you may have noticed im getting pretty interested in this trip hop and acid jazz. i got an album by "thievery corporation" and they are a great band in this genre. i got the album radio retailiation. From what i have heard (listening to it right now :) ) its really cool. Really unique like most of this music is however it still sticks to the familiar base of most music... like although its out there it still isnt like so bizzare you cant listen to it which in some other bands of this genre they are good but just so bizzare you really have to listen to enjoy. this album would be great for like homework... or.. tripping on acid.

Music for (8-31)

MMMMM hans zimmer hi. i really love him but i think alot of it has to be credited to the fact i love film scores. In addition to the recent addition (that was cool) of lion king and kung fu panda (both AWESOME) i also got the cod4:2 soundtrack (modern warfare two) and there are like a billion tracks but they are pretty good. i also forgot that i have the black hawk down soundtrack he did as well. i also got the pirates of the caribean at world ends sound track he did. i was trying to get the last samuri to but it didnt work out. Another film score i really want (not hans zimmer) is the march of the penguins soundtrack. i have heard one or two pieces from it and its pretty good i would suggest checking it out. i have never seen the movie tho. and of course we cant forget one of the best film scores of all time... lotr done by howard shore i like the first movies score the best. even if your one of those people with the mind of a two year old and couldnt appreciate the films of lotr, you will still like the soundtrack i promise.

AHHHH (more music for 8/30)

FML i just typed a big effing paragraph and it got erased. here we go again. one of my favorite top 5 albums (top 5 is a huge deal to me) is the thicker than wather soundtrack. its the soundtrack from the film thicker than water that jack johnson did. its really good. one track really sticks out to me and thats rainbow. its the second track i believe. well last time when it all got erased it typed all about how i got into blues music and how artists and songs can be bridges. well screw writing that out again. also i talked about the movie thicker than water and brokedwon melody. youll just have to check them out on your own cuz i aint typin all that again. but a thankyou to justin nickle who owns all those surf movies and got me into them. the reason im not typin all this out again is cuz the soundtrack to kungfu panda just finished downloading!!!! i have wanted this for so long and i finally got it and am loving every moment of this hans zimmer did yet again a more than perfect job. i love it how he can capture the apitimy of what you would think the spirit of a country or land would be like. such as in lion king it just seems to be african (when in reality its pretty far of from african music) but it seems to capture such a beautiful spirt i just love it and cant get enough of it now i have the asian end. yes this is so good mmmm and i have lots more hans zimmer on the way and i new pandora of him.

More music for today 8/30

Was listening to some of my sunday favorites and remembered a really good fav of mine although i only like a few of his songs... but i know its only a matter before it all grows on me and i understand it all. but anyway its norman blake. the orem public library has TONS of his albums and although its like country/blue grass like tenesse style its still shockingly good and you would be amazed at how similar it is to music that you would listen to and consider "chill". anyway my fav album by him is slow train throuhg georgia. you really have to get over the twangy bluegrass style but once you do you will love it. again, i only like a few tracks from this album because its so country and i typically dont listen to country but like i said its really similar to music you would listen to. anyway, check out the tracks called slow train through georgia, and spanish fandango(this one is an instramental) little joe, and there are a few other good ones on here but really if i was to slip an instramental from him on a chill cd i made and gave it to someone i can gurantee it would be a fav track you just have to get over the country vibe. but anyway start with spanish fandango its a really beautiful piece. Also, cant beet motab on the sabbath as well.

todays music

Got a few more albums today. only im finding i need more time to jam!

I got 3 albums from pete rock & c.l. smooth. these guys are really good and i dont know how i havent heard of them before like a month ago. but anway they have some really good tracks my favorite is take you there by pete rock on.. not sure i got it off of a album called the ninth wonder somthin. anyway just youtube it and youll be sure to find it. its a pretty solid track and its my fav by them atleast from what i have heard so far. but i got the albums titled "petestramentals" "soul survivor" "the surviving elements" "mecca & soul brother" "the main ingredient." which i guess is more than three albums my bad haha. but anyway got some others but until i listen to them to bad. but pete rock and cl smooth are sort of a more positive tip hip hop group but yet they have a unique sound in the p-tip world. check em out it will be worth your time.

Todays music

Today got some good new music
a bunch of new albums. first, i finally got the album by jack johnson titled en concert. sad i just got it? yes. but F braden lanham who promised to let me barrow it. its a great cd im a HUGE jj fan but it always pisses me off to see songs by him that were underground come up on his albums. i liked them better when people werent always playing them in the cars and stuff. but anyway, good to hear them he did a great job. like the original recordings of home and country road way better tho.

Also, i got 4 different albums from bizmarkie today. havent listened to to many of them yet but i see some of my favorites on there including "vapors" and "throw back". both are super sick and worth you tubing for sure.

Also, got deleirums album titled chimera. SUPER SICK havent listened to the hole thing all the way thru yet but they are a lot like zero 7 and i cant get enough of this acid jazz and trip hop (this cd is a lil more trip hop tho) but it has one of my favorite tracks ever on there called "stopwatch harts" super sick amazing track its on the cd i gave to suzy called underwater only im not sure the full version is on there. you should totally check that song out on you tube tho

Also, got frank sinatras greatest hits cd. need i explain? he is sick and thats all there is to it.

Also, "martina topley bird"s album titled the blue god. havent listened to this album to much but from what i have heard its pretty good. also a song on there that was also on susans album "underwater" that i gave her. the one by these guys is her favortie she told me titled "i still feel" its a pretty good song.

Also, finally got the J5 quality control album long story as to why i havent had it this hole time considering they are favorites. but yeah j5 in generall is bomb.

Anyway, thats today. check them out i hope to get some time to listen to all this all the way thru a few times

Todays music

Got a hole new plethora of music. i got most of Zero 7's albums yesterday and i have been listening to them and they are really good really unique if you havent listened to them i suggest you do. they are sort of acid jazz, but every track is different and bizzare. give them a listen to forsure. i think the OP (orem pulic library) has two of there albums? but last time i went they were lost so good lukc. but zero 7 is tight the song that made me interested in them and got me into getting there albums was in the waiting line by zero 7 on in the waiting line. cool instramental song really unique refreshing to here them. be sure to give them a few listens becuase its weird so the first few time heard you probably wont like them bust trust me. also got like over 500 new rap songs today that i will be picking thru. i will update my favorites from those as i go thru it over the next wile. a cool song i listened to today was directions by psyce origami on the standard. its a sick song that popped up on my p-tip (positive tip) rap station on pandora. i have had it for a wile but it still is super sick.

the track names are as follows...
this land
king of pride rock
under the stars

this land is my fav then under the stars then pride rock but they are all super dope and good. found these like four days ago and i added them to my africa playlist however there not that african.. oh well.

Also i got the album distant relatives by damian marley and NAS a few days ago. its prettty solid i really like NAS and any track feat. damian marley i have ever heard was super dope. speaking of tracks feat. him check these out
guns up by chali 2na on fish outta water
ganja bus by cyprus hill on til death do us part ( took a few times before i liked this song but thats how all of cyprus hill songs are for me)
no, no, no, by eve on gangsta lovin - this was the first song on the cd i made for susan. its repeditave at fist but the end gets pretty dope

traffic jam on kay bambas forth mix cd
iwannabe by musiq soulchild on onmyradio

why you doin that
speak the truth
funky 4 you.. this track is feat chali 2na :) :) whom i love

speaking of chali 2na... he is seriously so sick and is one of my fav rappers. for those of you who dont know him he is like the super low voice in Jurassic 5 (j5 likely my favorite rap group of all time-but that hasnt been decided yet) listen to his stuff he did with j5 and also check out his self released album fish outta water (mentiond earlier) aslo he has some more harder to find feat tracks as listed

the place by dj format on if you cant join em beat em - this track is sick!
international by beenie man on kya bamba mix cd 4 but this is proabably his most famous track
not afraind to die by tippa ire on talk the truth
come on by tippa ire on talk the truth
all of these songs feat chali 2na of course

now i know i keep getting carried away but i mentioned dj format and there is just one song by him that you should check out
ugly brothers by dj format on if you cant join em beat em...
why do i meniton this song? beacuse this is the story of braden lanhams life and its pretty funny and has a pretty smooth flow.
ANYWAY im going to stop getting carried away beacuse all this post was supposed to be was about the NAS and damian marley album.. haha

Thats right blogging world im back!
