Seems like it's been forever since we had a music post go up around here. I got Spotify a while back and now I'm starting to feel like I've listened to all my favorite bands and songs about as much as I can stand to without getting sick of them, so I'm looking for something new. So I'm asking you, the RCT community: what are you listening to lately? Bands, songs, albums, genres...what's on your playlist? Feel free to use this band to brag up and/or trash any artists you feel deserve it. It's a Friday, and I'm looking for any good discussion we can drum up while we wait for what should be an interesting weekend of sports.
Here are some things I'm listening to lately
Bastille - this band is amazing. Pompeii is getting a lot of radio play, and I was sort of lukewarm on it, but their album overall is fantastic. I can't say enough about them right now
Middle Class Rut - their most recent album came out last summer, but I still can't get enough of it. It's angry, rough around the edges and snarky, but still somehow heartfelt
Beastie Boys - for some reason I've been on a big Beastie Boys kick lately. Ill Communication will always be among the greatest rap albums of all time
Of Monsters and Men - I hadn't listened to them in a while, then played My Head is An Animal the other day in the car. Still great
Chvrches - I don't usually like really synth-y kind of stuff, but there's something about them I really enjoy
That's all I can think of right now. What do you got for me?
