View Full Version : Recommend me some music, please!

I am in a bit of a rut and would like to discover some new bands or artists. I'm going to keep it simple and make a list of people I already like. Feel free to suggest anything, new or old. I've been busy raising kids and have missed a lot over the last twenty years.
My Morning Jacket
Toad the Wet Sprocket/Glen Philips
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

recent Richard Thompson
last couple of Charlie Sexton records
+1 on Gillian Welch/David Rawlings

As mentioned, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. IMO, "The Harrow and the Harvest" is their best release yet!
The Wood Brothers newest, "Smoke Ring Halo" is amazing! Ten exceptional songs make this my favorite release of 2011.
Drive By Truckers, especially when Jason Isbell was in the lineup.
Ryan Adams has a deep discography and his newest, "Ashes and Fire" is really strong.

If you like Matthew Sweet, check out The Thorns (they made one self titled album).
And if you like Toad the Wet Sprocket, you'll probably like Midnight Oil (Earth And Sun And Moon).
Also, what about Bruce Cockburn? Dancing In The Dragon's Jaws and/or The Charity Of Night would be good starting places.

Not particularly new but you may have missed Big Sugar
Mike Henderson's "Edge Of Night"
is a must have. Starts off with this and continues into more of a country thing:
and um... not really sure where to start people on Ween....
