    I've got $60 iTunes credit, and am on the search for some new music.

    Whats one CD you have that you cannot live without?

    I'm into pretty much everything.. except country and rap.. i especially enjoy underground stuff... unsigned groups.. things of that nature..

    Depending on how weird you want to go...

    Capillary Action (Very, very small time band. I went to a concert in a rowhouse. Their music constantly shifts between Rock, Metal, Jazz, and a lot of other genres, often without warning. So Embarrassing is the album I'd recommend.)

    (Like Capillary Action, but older and more established with a more polished subtle sound. It does lose some of CA's lunacy though. Album to get: California. If you like music that's a bit weird, this is a must have.)

    (I don't want to say Math Rock, because that scares people. I prefer B-EP+EP-C to their later album Mirrored, but both are great and Mirrored is more accessible)

    (Freak/Avant-Garde Jazz group. I bought the whole 10 CD box set on Napster because they priced it as 1 album $10. hehehe...)

    (Some call it Post-Rock. It's electronic music, like Aphex-Twin, but with live drums and a bit more of a rock feel.)

    If I had to choose 1 cd (This week at least), it would probably be "California" followed by BATTLES Mirrored.

    I wouldn't call her "unsigned", but Fever Ray's pretty decent, her album's on iTunes. If I had to call her anything, it would be "atmospheric electronica"...?

    Dead Kennedys - Give me Convenience or Give me Death
    KMFDM - Nihil
    Ministry - Greatest Fits
    Offspring - Smash <-- one of my favorite albums...
    Sister Machine Gun - Burn; and- Sins of the Flesh


    OK... That's more than one...




    There are better songs than that one the album, but youtube doesn't have a very good selection for them... (That is not their video... Just a fan video.)

    I was gonna suggest some rap artists but never mind. You should check out Habib Koite & Bamada. He's an African guy. His songs are not in English but his voice and guitar work is really good. You can check him out on YouTube before buying. :thumbup:

    I just recently started listening to Congolese music and I love it... Drum beats and guitar just makes you move. It sounds a little like soca music... I don't know what they are saying but I enjoy it.




    I listen to this when I work out... which is rare...

    I currently can't work with Porcupine Tree's "In Absentia", "Deadwing" and "Fear of a Blank Planet" and Pure Reason Revolution's "The Dark Third" and "Amor Vincit Omnia".

    Other bands I'm listening to are Tool, King Crimson's recent stuff, Pineapple Thief, RPWL, The Mars Volta (except the latest album), OSI's latest album "Blood"...

    Prog rock galore, now that I think of it :D
