I like steve vai, but I couldn't ever get into zappa. Love the instruments, but the vocals bore me.

Side note: for anyone interested in world music or music at all, check out this awesome percussive experience: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNtpq...eature=related

I don't know any of those other than mastodon and only because KillerPenguin's status said that their new album makes him want to headbutt a wolf.

Stevie Wonder's For Once in My Life just popped up on my Otis Redding Pandora station......

Verdict: I need more Stevie in my life.

Any of you fellow jazz-nuts out there ever heard of the Trio of Doom?

If you ever get a chance, check them out and make sure to listen to continuum; it's absolutely gorgeous. On par with Weather Report's A Remark You Made or perhaps even Miles' Flamenco Sketches (OK maybe not that good...)

The song was called "It's Working"..big departure from Ocular Spectacular..I liked it though but not as much Kids or Time to Pretend

We get a few satellite radio stations via DirecTV that mostly suck, but they used to have a good reggae station called, appropriately, "The Joint"

Unfortunately that's gone now, and I'm convinced a computer is now the "DJ" - it's like elevator music now compared to what it was. Good god the music on that station sucks now.

I like The Police, and I like a lot of reggae, but the two should never, ever, be combined. Puke.

Where did "The Joint" go? Is it still on xm/sirius radio? Anyone?

I am also appreciating the giant middle finger to their tween fanbase. Do you like Caribou? His 2007 album Andorra was mostly psych-pop (also very good) but on Swim he's transitioned perfectly to watery dance/electronic. I think I've listened to the whole thing three times between last night and today.

I like it...kinda reminds me of this though, not exactly but as soon as I heard the riff this is what came to mind for some reason.

Not sure what it is but I hear it. Completely sucking in Ableton Live for a couple hours has completely renewed my appreciation for the business.

Yeah I can't really put my finger on it but the synth has the same kinda 'hook'. Most of this stuff reminds me so much of mid 80's music.

A friend just turned me on to Explosions in the Sky. Instrumental, no lyrics to get caught up in. Great for those longer tempo/endurance rides.

On the trainer this morning, I drowned out Robbie Ventura's voice with these guys:

That Caribou song reminds me a lot of daft punk for some reason.

Really liked it.

Someone has bumped Daft Punk at every WCCC collegiate race i've been to for the past three seasons in the parking lot.....

If I haven't heard "One More Time" by the time I hop on the trainer than I usually blast it from the car myself

I wish I could have done more collegiate events. That was the biggest issue in not having a team here, and not having the interest to field a bigger group of people.

you can race collegiate in graduate school... as long as you're a fulltime student.
