I am constantly keeping my ears opened for new music of all types, most recently with my discovery of the Silversun Pickups yesterday.
So, dear readers, I’m asking for your help. In the comments area of this post, tell me what artists/albums/songs you’re currently listening to right now? Even if you don’t consider it new, it might be to me or someone else. By the way Sam, I’m looking for you to pull through on this one since I know you’re a music junkie.
If you’re looking for some good ways to find new music yourself, I’ve got a few great sites for you:
While I’m still talking about music, I want to point you to a CBC interview with the Barenaked Ladies (Windows Media Player required). Besides being one of my all time favorite bands (Canadian or otherwise), the Ladies really get the changes affecting the music industry. They even distributed their last album (The Barenaked Ladies are Me) as DRM-free MP3s on USB thumb drives. The band’s new music label, Desperation Records, was also featured in a recent Wired Magazine story about the music industry – worth checking out.
