    I’ve been pretty obsessed with Jason Isbell lately and trying to get through his catalog. He’s an amazing song writer.

    And I need to give Sturgill Simpson’s newest album another listen. It was so produced when i gave it a first listen it kind of turned me off.Report

    I’ve been listening to X Ambassadors’ first album (VHS) on repeat for a few weeks now. The whole album is really an amazing work of art (no, seriously, the album is good as an album, not just as a set of songs), but I’ve especially loved the last track, “Naked”. Unfortunately all I could find on a quick youtube search are live shows with terrible mics, which just ruin the excellent (and, to me, genuinely sexy) saxophone work that holds the song together.Report

      Are those the “Unsteady” guys? That song kinda turned me off because it repeats itself about as much as Kings of Leon repeated “Use Somebody”.Report

        Yeah, same band. Same album, even. Maybe try “Renegades”? A lot of their songs sound very different, but the lyrics are usually a weak point.Report

    I joined a new gym that plays top 40 music all the time. When I’m there, anyway. I’ve stopped by in the middle of the day, and they’re playing top ’40s music, which I much prefer, but that doesn’t fit my schedule usually. Anyway, now I’m tuned into contemporary popular music for the first time since I was in high school and lived in the same house as my sister.

    Not exactly good, but not as bad as I expected: Bieber, Rihanna.

    So much worse than I expected: Taylor Swift.

    Actually pretty good: Elle King.

    Wait, what year is it again?: “Ebony and Ivory,” new songs by Cyndi Lauper and Eric Clapton.Report

      Not to be all Team Taylor or anything but I was surprised by how much better Swift’s songs were than I expected. There’s a “we will never go out of style” song that, seriously, is one that I would have sang along to as a basement dweller when I was 16.Report

        That’s a bit better, though still not something I’d choose to listen to. I just find her grating. The ones I’ve been subjected to at the gym are “New Romantics,” “Shake it Off,” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” And “22” just came up on YouTube after “Style,” and that’s pretty bad, too.Report

    In Strange Days, there is a performance by Juliette Lewis of a Peej song that never made it on an official album and it is a humdinger of a song:
