Well, I need some new music, and figure the best way would be to get an idea of what you guys are listening to.
Please put song, artist, and genre.

"The thing about it" - Sweatshop Union - Hiphop/rap
^^^in "The Collective"

ah, my two passions, music and bicycles.

as far as easily accessible new music, i'd recommend:

Q-Tip - the rennaissence (hip-hop)
Menahan Street Band - Make the Road By Walking(funk)
King Kahn and His Shrines - The Supreme Genius of(soulful, funky garage rock)
anything by Dungen.(psych rock)

a mtb forum is not a good place to find out about music. notice the first two guys are listening to music from the collective movies?!?!?! there is lots better music out there than stuff that happens to be in mtb vids.

Putting the playlist on random reveals:

What Goes On - The Velvet Underground
Mr. Martin - Starflyer 59
Traces - Built to Spill
Clark Gable - The Postal Service
Song About Sex - Neutral Milk Hotel
Champagne From a Paper Cup - Death Cab for Cutie
Race for the Prize - The Flaming Lips

I like indie rock and the bands that inspired them if you can't tell.

Depends...


When riding - mostly angry (read: mostly heavyish rock, punkrock etc) music really gets me pumped and it feels good while in the saddle.
My regular riding playlist is mostly: Rise Against, Nickelback, Offspring, BSF, Breaking Benjamin, with a few random tracks from others mixed in.

Though at home, I'll almost never listen to this stuff - its music for a purpose (psyching me up), and I appreciate it for that, but for relaxing it isnt really the right kind of music.

I wouldnt agree totally that all the music from collective films is rubbish - some of it is, some isnt.. I guess like music in general, its personal, but what I will say is that almost all of it works for the clip it accompanies.
I wouldnt say the rise against tracks (like the angel, torches, everchanging etc) are bad at all - nor would I say Sunday Jen is a bad song (though that band has a few other nice tracks on their album).

.
To each their own. Other than the indie rock I listed above, listen to punk, hardcore, metal, ect.. I've actually fallen asleep to listening to hatebreed and zao. I find the constant rhythms to be quite relaxing and a great stress reliever. By the way, that hatebreed song - destroy everything is great to listen to while working out.

I'm a music snob/whore/nerd/hoarder, spanning all genres except country (very few exceptions), and hip hop, which has been dead to me since about '91. Last five from today's shuffling says:

Jello Biafra and DOA - We Gotta Get Out Of This Place
Stiv Bators - Tell Me
Iggy Pop - Instinct
King Khan and the Shrines - Que Lindo Sueno
Charlie Feathers - Mound of Clay

South Side of the Sky - Yes
Kinda mountain bikey :)

A river a mountain to be crossed
The sunshine in mountains sometimes lost
Around the south side so cold that we cried
Were we ever colder on that day
a million miles away
It seemed from all eternity

Move forward was my friends only cry
In deeper to somewhere we could lie
And rest forthe the day with cold in the way
Were we ever colder on that day
a million miles away
It seemed from all eternity

The moments seemed lost in all the noise
A snow storm a stimulating voice
Of warmth of the sky of warmth when you die
Were we ever warmer on that day
a million miles away
We seemed from all eternity

The sunshine in mountains sometimes lost
The river can disregard the cost
And melt in the sky warmth when you die
Were we ever warmer on that day
a million miles away
We seemed from all of eternity

We need a music related forum

Nothing I'd rather discuss. I was just sent a link to an online newspapers six word reviews of 763 mp3's from bands appearing at the 2008 SxSW music festival in Austin. I'll include the link because the reviews are quite funny by themselves. The mp3's are free to download and keep. http://www.themorningnews.org/archives/reviews/sixword_reviews_of_763_sxsw_mp3s.php

They are expecting some 1800 bands from around the world to perform at the festival this March! I think I've only missed attending twice since '97. Do some riding in the morning and then head off for 12 hours of music, for four days.

Some favorites I saw over the years;

Mono / atmospheric rock / Japan
Slim Cessna's Auto Club / old-timey country / Denver
Besnard Lakes / indie pop / Montreal
Coco Rosie / indie folk-tronic / New York
Halou / electronica / San Francisco
The Frames / alt-pop / Ireland
My Morning Jacket / alt-country? / Kentucky
Modest Mouse / indie rock / Washington
Okkervil River / folk rock / Austin
Beirut / gypsy hybrid / Albuquerque
Ravonettes / garage rock / Copenhagen
The Eighties Matchbaox B-Line Disaster / punk rock / England
The Polyphonic Spree / pop / Dallas
The Twilight Sad / indie rock / Scotland
Under Byen (Sigur Ros meets Arcade Fire) / experimental electronic / Denmark

Cat Power, Yo La Tengo, Broken Social Scene, Brian Jonestown Masacre, Apollo Sunshine, Pavement, Giant Sand, Old 97's, Split-Lip Rayfield, Lilly Allen, Paolo Nutini, Stan Ridgway, Bloc Party, The Church, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, British Sea Power, Dressy Bessy, Exposions In The Sky, Film School, Flogging Molly, Great Lake Swimmers, Jucifer, Mando Diao, Peter Bjorn and John, Matt and Kim, Pedro the Lion, Peter and the Wolf, Pleasant Grove, Ringo Deathstar, Rock Plaza Central, Say Zuzu, San Saba County, SIANspheric, Singapore Sling, Snow Patrol, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Sparklehorse, Speedbuggy USA, Stratford 4, The '89 Cubs, The Early Years, The Go Team, Tokyo Police Club, Trailer Bride, The Gourds, Two Cow Garage, Slobberbone.

The world is filled with people who are no longer needed -
and who try to make slaves of all of us -
and they have their music and we have ours -
theirs, the wasted songs of a superstitious nightmare -
and without their musical and ideological miscarriages to compare our songs of freedom to,
we'd not have any opposite to compare music with -
and like drifting wind, hitting no obstacle,
we'd never know it's speed, it's power...

Woody Guthrie
