WTH are you listening to/share your music... Perfect Vision (2020) edition

Figured the last thread had been going for a couple years now and we also had a share your musical taste thread as well. Thought maybe an all in one thread for the upcoming new year would be good.

I'll be annoying some with my posts, I predict.

Halsey's new album drops on Friday, and judging by the 5 songs she's dropped, the early reviews and the popularity of it so far, it's going to blow up. I'm excited.

The Halsey album is really great. Feel like it should have come out like 2-3 months ago though. Was kinda getting tired of waiting for it. It’s worth the wait certainly though.

Can’t get into the new Eminem. I’ll get back to it eventually.

Assume a new release by The Weeknd is soon?

The Veer Union is getting a little bit of rock airplay with what is apparently a Halsey cover ("Nightmare"). Not the best thing I've heard from them but not bad by any means.

Songs like that are among my favorite "covers" because they're effectively not covers to me at all, they're the only way I've ever heard the song.

It's the formula that really launched I Prevail into current rock success (they covered TS "Blank Space" for one of the Punk Goes Pop compilations, their version was recently certified Platinum). 5 years later they've got a pair of top 15 rock albums, 8 more top 40 rock singles, and a pair of Grammy nominations.

It's top, fucking notch. It's got at least 6 or 7 high quality, wide variety, some good hooks, some really deep writing and lyrics. Interesting mashups, and I gotta give some love to Alanis' Interlude, you had me at, "your pussy is a wonderland."

That must be why I couldn't stand it, f'ing 80s. Pearl Jam is my favorite band, I can't wait for the full album, but man I was disappointed in this one.

Okay, sonically this isn't particularly interesting. But the story is at least somewhat so.

For a fair portion of the 70's, The Outlaws were a decently big deal. A mix of southern rock and california rock, hits like "Green Grass and High Tides" and "There Goes Another Love Song" (and a cover of "Riders In The Sky") became staples.

As happens, members come & go (occasionally they die), and people do other things. 3 members would go on to form the country group Blackhawk in the early 90s and had some success. (Blackhawk had a backing band for the road, known as The Backhawks, which is relevant for reasons I'll get to)

Again, members come & go (and die), times change, and eventually we reach 2020, where The Outlaws exist with no absolutely original members left (though some from their heyday) and are now comprised essentially of the members of Blackhawk, plus a couple of people who were Backhawks.

And among those people is Dale Oliver ... who is likely best known to FOFC as the musical director for TNA Impact Wrestling.

Ehhhhh ... depends on who you'd ask probably. MUCH more "rock" than "metal" afaic.

As a bit of trivia (I have no clue how well known / not known this is to anyone other than hardcore fans), they're managed by Zoltan Bathory of Five Finger Death Punch.

The links between the two groups are pretty strong, as Vext was the fill-in vocalist for 5FDP during Ivan Moody's most recent rehab stint.

Worth noting I suppose for anyone digging into their catalog that the last two albums feature their fourth different vocalist since 2003.

They last appeared on my weekly playlists back in {opens enormous spreadsheet} ... 2013, roughly the middle of the run for the third singer. I note that because it kinda of fits with the "improving over time" motif you noted with the latest mic wielder.

Totally unsure this will work as links, if it doesn't & you're interested give me a nudge & I'll figure out a better way.

My weekly Top 40 updated last night

Whoops!

My weekly Back Forty (often the considerably more interesting of the two) updated as well.

Whoops!

The links are displaying as "whoops" but clicking them, for me at least, seems to bring them up.

Girish and the Chronicles.

Yes, there's a new single.
And a new album due at the end of the month.

But I ain't linking one song here. Nope. To get some idea why I spent two hours (and saw the sun rise) listening to a band from 8,000 miles away (give or take), you really need to go through a variety of things on their YouTube channel.

Rock ain't dead, it's just hanging out in India.

For some reason I can't explain I've been finding the music of David Lowery especially good these days even though I've had their albums for like 25 or so years...

Camper Van Beethoven - "Take The Skinheads Bowling"



Camper Van Beethoven - "When I Win The Lottery"



Cracker - "Low"

Bingo. To this day, in the right setting (i.e. with the boys) if we hear something...anything... referenced by a three-letter string, if I can stretch it at all in that direction, I am racing one of my friends to get out "you down with A-I-G?" to a quick echo of "yeah you know me."
