What have you been listening to? How semi-recent? Preferred genres?

I don't really want to limit myself with "preferred genres." I don't like much country, but the country I do like, I really like. So, y'know (not that I think you're likely to be a big C&W fan yourself) if you REALLY LIKE SOMETHING A LOT recommend it.

Semi-recent meaning, I dunno, last couple of years? Or if it's really obscure but really awesome, no time constraint.

I've been listening to, well... tons of different stuff. Bhangra, hip-hop, alternative, bluegrass, symphonic, you name it. But I haven't been really actively seeking out new music much for the past year or three because with an MP3 CD deck in the car (and all radio stations universally sucking balls even when they AREN'T playing 10 minutes of solid back-to-back commercials) the pressure goes waaaaayyyyy down to constantly have fresh stuff so you don't hear the same thing over and over again too much.

Arcade Fire, Funeral is the only new CD I've bought from the past six months. Really like it, shared it with three coworkers.

Faith & the Muse, The Burning Season -- semi-obscure, not as goth or industrial as the categorization would imply. Varied tempo, mostly rock.

What I've heard of Franz Ferdinand is fun and light. Le Tigre, similarly so.

Two albums, two more artists... that a good start?

Billy Joe Shaver - he kinda vascillates from traditional country effective to guitar driven, what, Metal Country? Old guy, lots of fun to listen to.

Robbie Fulks - I've mentioned him before. Alternative country in a post-Wilco environment. Pretty good. He hates Nashville.

Leo Kottke - Guitar Virtuoso. I recommend you pick up Six and Twelve String Guitar, AKA the Armadillo Album. Damn fun live.

Coheed and Cambria - Jersey Metal

Bif Naked - I have no definition. She does a cover of We're Not Gonna Take It and a dance club single called Spaceman.

Reverend Horton Heat, I'm sure you're familiar with him. Likewise Southern Culture On the Skids.

Groovie Ghoulies - Punk/Pop college radio music. Kinda like Oldskul Green Day(ever though you'd see that phrase?).

The Legendary Shack Shakers - They do that song on the Geico commercial with the lizard riding in the little car being driven through the tunnel. That's CB Song. Fun stuff.

I know about Reverend Horton Heat 'cause I randomly found - and OBVIOUSLY felt required to download when I did - "the Jimbo song".

No one hasn't heard of them, but I can't get enough of the Killers.

Frickin' A is good for some lighthearted stuff by a few guys who just wanna have fun. I used to be religiously into the lead singer's old band.

And Better Than Ezra's new album is going to be out the 26th, and I'm going to cream my jeans.

I'm such a metalhead these days

The new Killswitch Engage is INCREDIBLE... Especially the title track "End of Heartache", but "A Bid Farewell" and "Take This Oath" fucking RAWK.

The new GWAR album War Party is the shizzle. Although it's been out a few months, it's still new to you. "Bring Back the Bomb" is great, as are "Krosstika" and "You Can't Kill Terror". GUARANTEED to offend and entertain.

What I've heard of Lamb of God's new one is pretty impressive. Still waiting on the new Nine Inch Nails. I think there's a single out there somewhere from that one.
