Alright, time for some discussion on what yr all listening too. My iTunes inventory is getting a little stale so I'm up for some inspiration.

Currently loving The Drones' album "Havilah".. incredible songwriting and some of the best recorded guitars and drum I've heard in a long time. I'm a little late to the party with this album but it's on high rotation at the moment and will probably stay there a while. I've seen these guys live once (Fowlers, Adelaide) and fortunately they're incredible on stage too. Can't wait to see them again.

Sitting at the airport, now into my fourth flight reschedule, with my second fourteen-dollar beer (bloody hell.. Twenty eight bucks for two beers!) and thoroughly enjoying Badly Drawn Boy’s first album ‘The Hour Of Bewilderbeast’.

Did a fair bit of driving earlier this week, and a swag of older albums kept me accompanied. Highlights were Goat (The Jesus Lizard), I Should Coco (Supergrass), ACME (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion), Gentlemen (Afghan Whigs) and Lets Stay Friend (Les Savy Fav).

Alcest - Escailles de lune. An acquired taste but you won’t look back. Latest album Kodama is ball tearing. Violet Cold as well is particularly incredible, try Anomie as an introduction

Goat is a great album, my favourite band live. Try and get a hold of Bang. A live compilation album. ‘Mouth Breather” off of Bang is noisy gold

A mate just put me onto a young surfer / singer / songwriter from down amongst the Karri trees in Southern South West WA. His names Clay Western and he’s got a single out on Spotify called “ Holiday Dream”. He’s 18 years old and I’ve got a feeling you’ll be hearing more from this young fella.

One of those bands i like but still not a huge fan, but this gig is pretty impressive 3 hours and a setlist that covers pretty much every good song of theirs including a few from Gish.

Some weird covers in their too which actually kind of work.

Judging from this performance definitely not washed up as suspected.

@ MattLock

I think that might have popped up in my Youtube suggestions i will check it out.

Ive always found the Melvins a funny band though some of my favourite songs are Melvin songs, mostly from Houdini and Stoner witch, but then there is so much I've tried to get into but just can't.

@Indo. Those albums are mid 90s ones . I reckon they have done heaps of good stuff since then. It takes time and listens to appreciate [the]Melvins. They have had a few different line ups over the years. Their albums mostly sound a from a bit different from each other while still sounding like [the]Melvins . Their latest "Pinkus Abortion Technician" is cracker, two bass players for double the "brown". One of the bass players is Jeff Pinkus, ex Butthole Surfers. They do a couple of excellent Butthole covers and a Beatles! cover.

Saw GZA from the WuTang Clan live last week so ive been going back to some 90's hip hop .. Liquid Swords etc.

Apart from that saw Trail of Dead play Source Tags and Codes back to front a few weeks ago. Some of those songs i'd never heard live. Been listening to that album a few times since then.

I was trying to find some tracks from 80’s Adelaide band The Coneheads on youtube. They featured on another Ripcurl surf movie Savage Cuts 2. Instead I stumbled across this Canadian band of the same name. They sound like DEVO on meth. Pretty cool actually....
