I was so proud of myself for downloading R.E.M.'s new album Accelerate, thinking, "Wow! A band I recognize." But the truth is I haven't been keeping up with today's music.
Here's the list I received from a few friends. Some bands/artists I do know but some are a complete mystery.
Hot Chip: "made in the dark" and "ready for the floor" (seeing the band this weekend! woo-hoo!)
Rilo Kiley: "silver lining," "breakin' up," "give a little love"
Missy Elliot: "Ching a ling"
Cat Power's "Jukebox" album
Loudon Wainwright: "Daughter" and "Grey in LA"
Andrew Bird: "Plasticities"
Radiohead: "Nude," "Jigsaw falling into place," "Weird fishes/arpeggi"
Vampire Weekend: "Oxford Comma"
M.I.A: "Paper Planes," "Mango Pickle Down River"
And two bands called Ok Tokyo and Seawolf.
Any suggestion for songs to download from iTunes? I like all genres except for Country music.
