      @mike-dwyer , if the Truckers don’t do it for you, I don’t know what to do.

        Huh, no idea why one is an embed and one is a link, but I’m on mobile so it’s a hassle to fix. Sorry….Report

        I do like DBT, but I think they still fit the general thesis. With the OT, what always gets me is the (seemingly) complete lack of interest in anything mainstream that I find unsettling. Or maybe trying to expose people to obscure bands makes better post fodder so it’s just what people like to write about.Report

        Chris keeps in touch with some mainstream stuff I think, but it’s more hip-hop derived mainstream, so if hip-hop’s not your thing…

        As for me, I always say: I didn’t leave pop music, it left me. 😉

        Seriously dude, do some music posts. They are always welcome, plus we’ve been having some trouble filling the calendar lately because people have been busy. Get in there.

        I’ve done plenty of music posts that get only a handful of comments, because it’s some niche thing that I am interested in, that maybe others aren’t.

        Then, one of my most-commented on music posts used Black Sabbath as a jumping-off point, and I assumed that was going nowhere, but it turns out (some) people love Black Sabbath.

        I’m sure if you wrote about the stuff you like to listen to, you’d find you’re not alone.Report

        Thanks for the encouragement Glyph. I’ll consider. I’ve been thinking a lot about Queen lately since they have a new album coming out.Report

        i nominate mr. dwyer to do a post about what music sounds the most like hunting*.

        having moved to a place where hunting is “a thing” i sometimes wonder what hunters listen to when getting psyched up to go kill shit. i doubt it’s all worn c90 slayer mixtapes.

        *if the answer is “field recordings” i will high five you.Report

      • Avatar Mike Dwyer says:


        If there is a good sountrack for hunting I’m not aware of it. Maybe ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ for a good duck hunt or something from the Last of the Mohicans. For me, I prefer silence as much as possible.Report

        whenever i see deer in my backyard i imagine this playing while someone drives an 89 chevy blazer with a snowplow on the front right through a whole bunch of baby deer. in slow motion.

        needless to say i know nothing of hunting.Report

    No one is talking about how they feel about Star.


    Indie-Pop/Rock feels like it is the most authentic form of music for me to like. You might like Wussy though.
