Didn't want to make a thread just for Mumford and Sons' album released today, but did want to see if any Scoopers had an opinion on it.  Also figured music is a topic worth discussing.

Regarding Mumford's new album, I didn't like much of it the first time around, but the more I listen to it the more I like it.  It was the same way with the last album they released.  I think the genre change just throws me off the first time I hear them.  Pretty slow so interested to see what they do for their live shows (will be going to the one at the Fiserv at the end of March), but again, was worried about how their new album was going to translate to live music with their last album to the point that I almost sold my tickets, ended up deciding to go to the concert, and thought they were phenomenal as always, so I think they'll be fine.  But overall I think it's pretty solid.


Other artists/musicians I enjoy include Brett Dennen, Mat Kearney, and Judah and the Lion.

Not really a fan of their music, but after having seen a clip of the Imagine Dragons guy on The Ellen Show and the clip below, I like what the lead singer seems to be about.

I've also been enjoying Lupe Fiasco as a bit of a change of genre/pace for me.

I don't know how to link to a certain point of the video, but the last 20 seconds is key
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Old stuff:

2015 stuff:

Newest album:

No problem if people don't like Mumford and Sons, but their last 2 albums are nothing remotely similar to what their old stuff was, nor are they similar to each other.

Oh you don't need to tell me. I enjoy Mumford and Sons (though not enough to have listened to the new album). I just enjoyed the clip.

Interesting HBO movie (Believer) about the lead singer's fight with depression and his effort to get the Mormon Church (he is a Mormon) to accept LGBT kids.

Yup.  That's a lot of what he talked about on The Ellen Show.  Didn't realize there was an HBO movie on it.  Talked about how the first time he was able to relate with the friends he had growing up that were LGBT was when he was kicked out of BYU for having sex with his girlfriend of 4 years when to him it was an act of love and beauty yet he was made to feel ashamed.  Seems like a down to Earth, interesting guy.

As the father of an 11 yob, Imagine Dragons gets a lot of play.    I won't say it is great, I will say that it is better than 90% of what is currently played on commercial radio.

Agreed.  They're okay.  But also incredibly overplayed, which makes them less great.

Concur.
For my 12 yob, it's either them or 21 Pilots.

My 11 yog, however, shares my taste in music, unfortunately for her (indie/alt rock). She came home from school the other day and declared, "Dad, no one has ever heard of any of the bands I like."

I get that, too.    My 11 yob has an near encyclopedic knowledge of 80's stuff and will bust out a lyric anytime somebody says something that closely approximates said lyric.    Along with Irish drinking songs.      Will debate the relative merits of Van Halen with David Lee Roth vs Sammy Hagar.    Ponders why he can't sing like the guy from AC/DC.  (whisky and cigarettes, young man, whisky and cigarettes), dreams of hitting that impossible note at the end of 'Take on Me'....... yeah, I am a crap father.

I try to explain to my 12 and 10 year olds that a electronic drum beat and auto tune isnt music.  I'm not having much luck.
Unless Sultan says differently that is, then we’d obviously have to go with that....

Couldn't agree more (plus the 21 Pilots mention) for 10yob and 12yob.

My proud moment this week was I had Audioslave on and my 10 year old says "never heard of them", so i ask him 'ignoring the singer who does the band sound like?' *2 minute pause* "kinda sounds like RATM".

Good stuff Tower. Some of my best memories growing up are of singing along to my parents' favorite music while driving with them. I was a 90s kid and liked all the music of the time but my parents raised me on Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, and a whole bunch of Jam Bands.....and Eddie Money for some reason. Still know every word of the Rumors album from front to back.

HA! I thought it was just me.
I half expected to receive a call from school that one of my kids was singing Whiskey in the Jar in class.
Then I remembered it was Catholic school, so...

I can happily say I've never heard a Migos song in my life, but this is pretty friggin good.  The guy in the Phillies hat is my favorite.

Turning my 18 year old nephew onto Guster, Weezer, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ben Folds are among my prouder moments as an uncle.  In turn he has expanded my library to include The Happy Fits, Gorillaz, Felly and the late Mac Miller. All excellent choices.

RATM is one of my faves. First time I heard Audioslave, I absolutely loved them. Only took a couple songs to think, Hey, sounds like Tom Morello on guitar.

Check out the one album he did with Street Sweeper Social Club, it’s fantastic. Boots Riley (who’s political stance is extreme by my POV and also the writer/director of the movie ‘sorry to bother you ‘) is a great front man

I know I may be in the minority here , but I always enjoyed the three tenors:  Plácido Domingo, José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti. I attended a concert at the old Giants Stadium in the Meadow lands back in the late 90s.

Parental advice:  If you ever label something as "not music," they aren't going to listen to you.  My dad once said that an electric guitar isn't music because it went through an amplifier. 

That's when I started listening to more Hendrix.

I thankfully took my kids to see 21 Pilots last year.  A great show.

80's music is totally in with kids.  They don't get upset when I have 80's on 8 on XM on.

Hopefully the 1/25 show in Houston or at least something other than 1/23 in Austin (game night vs. DePaul!).

Last month marked the 20th anniversary of the first Atmosphere show I ever ** THREW **. Dang, time flies.

Here's a video of Slug rhyming on my radio show from many, maaaannny years ago:

Based on your taste, you should definitely check out Courtney Barnett. New-ish artist with a rad 90's-indie sound (reminds me of Malkmus' guitar work with Pavement). Try The Double EP record and go from there.

I like Courtney and thought i'd love the stuff with Kurt Vile but i'm having a tough time getting into it.  Is it just me or is this a better match in theory than in practice?  i felt the same way about LCD's American Dream, revisited it a month ago and i clearly was missing it the first couple of run throughs so maybe it just needs to be revisited.

I like Courtney and thought i'd love the stuff with Kurt Vile but i'm having a tough time getting into it.  Is it just me or is this a better match in theory than in practice?  i felt the same way about LCD's American Dream, revisited it a month ago and i clearly was missing it the first couple of run throughs so maybe it just needs to be revisited.

Agree, I think they're both better on their own. In regards to LCD, American Dream is definitely the weakest album compared to This is Happening and Sound of Silver. Has a few great songs on it but nothing to write home about in my opinion.

Based on your taste, you should definitely check out Courtney Barnett. New-ish artist with a rad 90's-indie sound (reminds me of Malkmus' guitar work with Pavement). Try The Double EP record and go from there.

Agreed she's great, and great live

Yeah it's weaker than those 2 for sure but those are incredibly good albums so high bar

Hopefully the 1/25 show in Houston or at least something other than 1/23 in Austin (game night vs. DePaul!).

Last month marked the 20th anniversary of the first Atmosphere show I ever ** THREW **. Dang, time flies.

Here's a video of Slug rhyming on my radio show from many, maaaannny years ago:

https://youtu.be/TZUrk89JBH4

Why couldn't Slug watch your porn?

That was pretty dope. I've been wanting to see Slug and Ant forever but my schedule just never lined up well. Going to the Houston show.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I'm with you. Her solo stuff is way better. I think the problem is the CB/KV record is too mellow for two folks who can rawk.

Glad you're going to check out a show. I was close friends with Slug when they were just getting started - the success is amazing.

I think that night he was at my apartment over on Prospect and Brady before the radio show and I had, uhh, a VHS tape of some sort playing on the TV. IIRC he was likely going to stay overnight, but plans changed during that day before the show.. so it was a freestyle about how he wasn't sleeping over anymore, so he wouldn't be able to peep the videos after the show.. a true freestyle, hey.

memorized the words to “hot rod Lincoln “ when I was a teenie, fun song to sing back in the day.  All the girls would get a tingle running up their leg hearing the cadence of what was probably one of the first “rap type” songs. If you could do this, you were beyond cool man!!🕺🏾🤷🏼‍♂️🙉

 “Son you’re gonna drive me to drinkin if ya don’t stop drivin that hot rod Lincoln.....”



My pappy said "Son, you're gonna drive me to drinkin',
If you don't stop drivin' that Hot Rod Lincoln. "

Have you heard the story of the hot rod race,
Where the Fords 'n' Lincolns were settin' the pace?
That story is true, I'm here to say,
That I was drivin' that Model-A.

It's got a Lincoln motor and it's really souped up,
That Model-A body makes it look like a pup.
It's got eight cylinders and uses 'em all,
Got overdrive that just won't stall.

With a four-barrel carb and a dual exhaust,
With 4-11 gears you can really get lost.
Got safety tubes but I ain't scared,
The brakes are good, tires fair.

Pulled outta San Pedro late one night,
The moon 'n' the stars was shinin' bright.
We was drivin' up Grapevine hill,
Passin' cars like they was standin' still.

All of a sudden in the wink of an eye,
Cadillac sedan passed us by.
I said "Boys that's the mark for me,"
By then the tailight was all you could see.

Now the fellas ribbed me for bein' behind,
So I thought I'd make the Lincoln unwind.
Took my foot off the gas'n'man alive,
I shoved it on down into overdrive.

Wound it up to a hunderd an' ten,
My speedometer said that I hit top end.
My foot was glued like lead to the floor,
That's all there is an' there ain't no more.

Now the boys all thought I'd lost my sense,
Them telephone poles looked like a picket fence.
They said "slow down, I see spots,"
The lines on the road just looked like dots.

Took a corner'n'side-swiped a truck,
Crossed my fingers just for luck.
My fenders was clickin' the guardrail posts,
The guy beside me was white as a ghost.

Smoke was comin' from outta the back,
When started t' gain on that Cacillac.
Knew I could catch him, I thought I could pass,
Don'tcha by then we'd be low on gas.

We had flames comin' from outta the side,
You could feel the tension, man whatta ride.
I said "look out boys, I got a license to fly,"
And that Caddy pulled over and let us by.

Now all of a sudden she started knockin'
Down in the dip she started to rockin'
And I looked in the mirror, a red light was blinkin',
The cops was after my hot rod Lincoln.

They arrested me 'n' they put me in jail,
'n they called my pappy to throw my bail,
'n he said "son you're gonna drive me ta drinkin'
If you don't stop drivin' that hot rod Lincoln.

Bump. What are we listening to in 2019?

I tried getting tickets to the Lumineers show at the Pabst right when they went on sale but the site would put me in the queue and then crash and a couple minutes later it said all the tickets were sold out. Think that will be a great show in a smaller venue but heard last time they scheduled them at the Pabst they moved it to the Marcus Amphitheater due to ticket demand.

I saw them open for Petty. Very good live band.

Spotify helped me recently discover a guy named Dave Hause (recommendation after I’d been listening to Brian Fallon, lead singer of former The Gaslight Anthem). Usually when artists go to rehab and get clean their craft suffers, but Hause’s newest album is right up there with his previous three.

Just saw Brian do an acoustic set in Dublin a few months back and honestly it might've been a better show than seeing gaslight anthem.

I don't have many "saw them before they were big" stories, but Gaslight Anthem is one of the few I did. Saw them play at the Rave as the first warmup act to Thrice, Alkaline Trio, and Rise Against. Thought at the time that their set was better than both Thrice and Alkaline. Then saw them a couple of months later when they were the headliner on their own mini tour in some dinky stage above a bar downtown.

I know they did some shows for the 10th Anniversary of The ‘59 Sound but I think it will be a while before TGA get back together, if ever. The divorce hit Fallon hard and he’s changed his sound from TGA’s heyday. A lot of Get Hurt was about the divorce. He’s a ridiculously talented songwriter and his voice drips with raw and real emotion.

Ever heard his Horrible Crowes stuff?

I'm sure they'll do a few more reunion tours every so often. Most interviews I've read they're always saying that Gaslight just isn't a full time thing but they're not dead.

I have heard some of his Horrible Crowes stuff, a bit too melodic for me as I'm usually more on the punk and edgier Indie side of the music spectrum.

Lana Del Rey's 'Doin' time' vocals sound like they were cribbed from Sinead O'Connor's  'Empire'.     Not that this is a bad thing.    Not the lyrics, but the vocal stylings.

I'm pretty sure that was probably cleared before hand.  There isn't even a deviation, that's basically a sample.  Also not surprising for Green Day who have become hacky as they come.
