    A ton of Dave Matthews Band. For some reason I had lost touch with my self prior to becoming a stay-at-home dad. The other night it was as if I snapped out of a trance. So, I've made it a point to regaining my life that I had neglected for far too long. I've started compiling a playlist of Dave Matthews Band shows on YouTube here.

    Mostly Big Black Delta’s new album, 4.
    I love it, Jonathan brings more rock influences (who else here loved Mellowdrone?) to this project to complement the synth pop anthems and soundscapes. Only gripe I have with it is that the mixing is super rough at spots, but frol what I gather he did it himself.

    Mostly, a bunch o' jazz. On Youtube, a lot of Tim Lerch and some Julian Lage. Two great guitarists putting out really good solo guitar takes on tunes.

    LITE

    Japanese instrumental math/prog rock, very cerebral and pretty.

    Shellac - At Action Park

    Also very cerebral, beautiful in it's own way. Steve Albini is one of a kind.

    You could not possibly go wrong with anything by either group.

    Over the past little bit I've been in a phase of listening to some of my favorite albums from high school.
    Queens of the Stone Age's self titled, Mastodon's Crack the Skye, Gojira's Terra Incognita, and some others. I think I've been putting too much pressure on myself to keep listening to new stuff all the time, and coming back to all of these things that mean a lot to me has done me some good.

    Poets of the Fall has been releasing acoustic versions of their songs: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLf036d2aMIZ6D3wokATNETvpqszodvK8p I especially like this version of Angel:...

    Poets of the Fall has been releasing acoustic versions of their songs: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLf036d2aMIZ6D3wokATNETvpqszodvK8p

    I especially like this version of Angel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTXd90pVjCg&list=PLf036d2aMIZ6D3wokATNETvpqszodvK8p&index=8&t=0s -- the album version was a rather tepid dance song which was weird given how melancholic the lyrics are.

    In a similar vein, Matthew Bellamy has released a couple acoustic songs:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXc-TjOUBPo -- Unintended (this is originally from 1999)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vih_PxaCAJc -- Tomorrow's World (this one's a new song)

    And of course, I listen to Pure Reason Revolution's superb/amazing/magnificent Eupnea every week at least once: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQvGPTkg1gA&list=OLAK5uy_l-XdFNh92x9Rpjebhidq0ylX_a9jWYA5o

    ... and finally a nice new song from Pineapple Thief: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nooe94rQ2Q

    I've been getting a lot more into Gotye recently. A deeper look into his discography that isn't just "Somebody I Used To Know" revealed some really great stuff. The entirety of Like Drawing Blood is masterful, it's just like nothing I've ever heard before. If you're a little bored of the music you're listening to now I'd 100% recommend listening to Like Drawing Blood, at the very least it will be a weird ride.
