There is an artist named or calls him self "Bense". he is french i truely have no idea how i stumbled apon him on youtube a few years back but anyway i have three of his songs. Yes, they are all in french (i rarely listen to foreign lang. music) but i really like it actually. its just a chill sound and the musical qualities are great. you tube him and type in "bense angela session acoustic" and it should pop up as a black and white vedio of some guy with a hat playing. check him out the other songs or titles are "buvons" and "Au grand". Justin didnt like this guy if i remember right but give it a few listens and it will grow on you its pretty solid.
Also today i found myself listening to michael franti and spearhead. no im not a hippie or a vegitarian or enviormentalist but there is no denying franti is a great artist. he is pretty anti gov liberal and the hole bit but his music is great. i was listening to his album "yell fire" (debatably in my top 5 albums) and its awesome. What suprises me is how consistant every song is on that album. its not just like one or two good hits and then decent everything else every song is really like a money good treasure on the yell fire album. if i were you i would just strait up buy that album not on itunes tho cuz if you use itunes your wasting money and your a sap. i would list my favorite tracks but that would just take forever cuz like i said they are all money. not sure how consistant his other albums are but the yell fire is MONEY
I got a song today by a band/artist titled "mono" its more of that acid jazz/ trip hop but its a great song even if your not that familiar to the genre. but the song i got is called "silicone" i only have one track but im defenitly going to try and get a few albums. awesome song.
Listened a lot more to thievery corporation today. i continued to listen to the radio retaliation album and its just growing more and more on me its awesome. but the reason i bring them up is i got another song by them today titled heavens gonna burn your eyes on album richest man in babylon. cool song the beat drops in a litttle way into the song and its awesome.
back to the hip hop got a song by outerspace today called american me. check it out its pretty cool thats all there is to it. outerspace is pretty underground to
another song i got today more similar to neil halstead was song "god made the automobile" by iron & wine on around the well. pretty cool song again just check it out.
listenin to some more frank sinatra today. gotta love it dang its been a wile since i have jammed to jazz and blues and such. favorite track of the day by him is "them song of new york new york" great stuff i think he did the soundtrack for oceans eleven thats what justin told me atleast.
Still the number one most played song on my itunes is tonny bennet and billy joel singing "new york sate of mind" on tonny bennets "playing with my friends" album. tonny bennet plus bill joel especially on a song like that is amazing.
Also litened to some howard shore. gotta love the fellowship of the ring soundtrack.
wow you can tell by the way the paragraphs decline how lazy i get about typing aobut artists and music.
