^ Coelacanth, would you classify this as "new grass"? ^ Anyways, I really like this one.



And ^this one! Spiro does UK folk, minimalist orchestral music. Only 4 people make this beautiful sound! Everyone knows of Celtic folk, but they purposefully try to keep it British folk. Music is culture, afterall, and culture is fascinating  :cool.







Then we have Daughter A UK band that has some of the most difficult lyrics and melodies that I have ever listened to.



And now some music from Iceland, Asgeir.



Or how about smooth electronic beats with Swaheeli vocals?

Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    MC 360 once again proving that rap can have meaning.

    Quote
    Yo, I wanna know how you feel man.
    What, you think you a real man?
    What about your children?
    This s___ right here's gonna kill them.
    Thought she married a goody,
    but she married a bully.
    fluff that, yo she married a pussy.
    A real man never puts his hands on a woman.
    No way, is it okay, whether male or female it goes both ways.
    It doesn't matter who's the higher rate, you never touch somebody in a violent way.
    You're so alone though. You might die if you don't go.
    See it's hard to take, you can't escape, it's like you're imprisoned in your own home.
    One second you get a nice kiss, the next you might get a right fist.
    It could be any night, you knew he had a temper but never like this.
    What a monster he's turned into.
    Now mentally you're turning too.
    It's not just hurting you, if you don't leave now he might murder you.
    You thought you were gonna be great, now you wanna escape, but you're scared as s___.
    You're afraid of the dark and the darkness right now is where you live.
    You don't need to be brave.
    Stop leavin' it be.
    Your kids are the reason you stay,
    but they need to be the reason you leave.
    That's it! You've got to leave. I hope they don't understand what they see.
    And if they do understand, then I hope they view him as what not to be.
    I believe it's time for peace. Here's some words a wife will need.
    You gotta know that abuse is the issue as soon as he hits you, it's time to leave.
    Never knew he was crazy as this. Feel so trapped no escaping his s___.
    It ain't about takin' a hit, he'll say anything just to make you forgive.
    No apology will ever change what he did, can't ever take back breaking your ribs.
    You gotta do it for the sake of the kids, so they know it ain't cool to be raisin' their fists.
    It doesn't matter if you're men or women, if you love 'em then you never hit 'em.
    It doesn't matter if you're men or women, if you love 'em then you never hit 'em.
    It doesn't matter if you're men or women, if you love 'em then you never hit 'em.
    It doesn't matter if you're men or women, if you love 'em then you never hit 'em.

    The MILKDRIVE piece is interesting.  I like it.  Sort of an offshoot off Grisman's "dawg music".  Its not really "newgrass" per se - more of a new age country sound that has quite a few disparate elements woven together.  Good musicians though.   :thumbup1

    Spiro is not far off some of the PCO stuff but it has more of a Manx reel flavor to it.  Nicely done. 

    Daughter reminds me a little bit of another U.K. group from a few years back called Jez Lowe and The Bad Pennies.  Their style strikes me as a bit more "urban" and a little more "rappish" ?  ( izzat a word?   :scrutiny )

    MC 360?  Once again, I like the written poetry - but I don't care for the voiceover delivery accompanied by .  .  .  music? Just not my thing.

    That's a new one to me. I don't think I've ever heard someone suggest that daughter is rappish. They take the female vocals and indie electronic vibe popular in most of today's pop music and...... Make it depressing as hell. The xx and purity ring have more in common with daughter than say, female rapper Iggy Azaela or however it's spelt  :shrug.

    Glad you liked some of those  ;). After all, my goal is to reach people with varying tastes in music. Something has to stick  :neener.

     Well as Tom Waits once said when he was asked who's music he liked,  "Everybody I like is either dead or not feeling very well.".   'Nuff said.  :cool

    Original vs covers:













    I must admit that the cover of stolen dance (twin bandit) is superior to the original.

    Post your best country heart break songs for me. Oldies, goodies, commonly heard, and obscure- just make it country  ;).













    I really like the lyrics to this song, although it's blue grass- technically not country.

    Spoiler (click to show/hide)



















    Ok, so that kind of warped into blue grass, but I have the last song on vinyl and I enjoy it  :cool.

    Man, I love classic country. Even despite liking George Strait's give it away, it cannot hold a candle to some of the older songs that I posted.

    Man, I love classic country. Even despite liking George Strait's give it away, it cannot hold a candle to some of the older songs that I posted.

     OK.   Me too.    I am a sucker for a steel guitar , fiddle and stratocaster....
                         http://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/msg/5781230835.html     oops..... :D

             Most good songs are about love and loss- especially good country. :D   I don't know how to sift out the ads, so bear with it.

     Haggard        emmy lou version excellent also

     Emmy Lou-      She is not known as a writer, but this song is great-about Gram Parsons .
                           

     Gram Parsons   
                           

     Not classic- but- Eliza Gilkyson- fantastic fiddle/steel break in this- simple, clean, effective.
                             

     Patty Cline - one of my favorites-  for an interesting comparison, listen to this, then go and find some cover's- Patty Cline sings this effortlessly, and the covers, even the covers by real pro's, sound like they are screaming.
                             

     Keith Whitley- classic
                       

     Russel Smith- Amazing rhythm Aces-
                            Killer chord changes on this
                         

     Vince Gill-     
                        he sang this with Patty Loveless at George Jones memorial- right to the heart.
                        Vince Gill is one heck of a guitar player as well.

     John Hiatt- not really "country", but pretty hard to categorize- one of the very best writers  around- he constantly amazes.
                         

      Steve Earle-   

     And to finish this, a few white trash rockabilly songs-

             Most good songs are about love and loss- especially good country. :D   I don't know how to sift out the ads, so bear with it.
     

    I agree that the best songs are about love and loss (this can go for books and other forms of art as well!). Try this tokugawa, Swedish duo First Aid Kit used to listen to their Grandparents collection of old country songs and then started making music of their own as teenagers. They cited Emmy Lou as being one of their many old school influences on their music, you might want to check them out! Their voices and harmonies alone make me weak in the knees and I fall in love a little bit every time I hear them. I love a good fiddle, but the female voice is probably the most beautiful instrument we have on this planet.









    This last one is a cover of an REM song, so I believe they altered their sound a bit. Still beautiful vocals and strings.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.
