  1. My wife has been a fan of Glen Hansard for maybe the last half dozen years or so. My first impressions were that he was overwrought. A little too moody for me. Not inventive. Songs sounded too similar. Meh. But....I love my wife. And she's indulged me in my fascination with metal. And besides, I generally love Scottish and Irish music. I'm a huge Silly Wizard fan, for example. So when she suggested we see Glen Hansard at The Anthem, while I initially was not wild about it, I remembered these things and remembered that she's also turned me on to many bands and other performers that I loe dearly so, of course, we set the plans in motion. This concert was a week or two ago. It was GREAT. Tremendous performer and band. A storyteller. Inclusive. Infectious. And clearly I had been doing things wrong. Many songs, while unfamiliar to me absolutely were great. I need to listen to his stuff MORE LOUDLY. And some blew me away. Like this absolute gem. I think they stretched this to about 9 minutes. To say I was elated to see this performed by folks at the top of their game is an understatement.
  2. Júníus Meyvant (real name Unnar Gísli Sigurmundsson) is an Icelandic singer-songwriter from the Westman Islands with folk/pop/Northern Soul (Arctic soul?) influences. He has released one album, the excellent Floating Harmonies. But he is best heard live with his 7-piece band on this recording from the Kex Hostel in Reykjavik from 2015.
  3. My wife introduced me to Paul Weller in the early 90s. I knew The Jam (1976-1982) because of MTV, but never made the connection and at the time it was not my thing. Over the past 20 years I have really grown to love what this guy does. Most of it is at least good or interesting, some of is is great, and he has some serious gems in his catalog. I prefer his 90s to early aughts period the most. A favorite song of mine from his body of work is "As You Lean Into The Light." Sit back, feel the groove, the atmosphere and lean in to it. It's pretty great. "As You Lean Into The Light" (Live (much extended) version - amazing): "As You Lean Into The Light" (Studio): But don't get we wrong, he also does a lot of louder/faster/robust songs. And his voice is just great.
  4. I've learned from these threads that our members are a very, very intelligent, diverse bunch with interest ranging from everything to homemade pasta, to birding, to architecture, and probably hundreds, if not thousands, of other topics, hobbies, and passions. I want to dedicate this Indie Rock / Alternative Rock thread to one of our greatest members, cheezepowder, and with both the 9:30 Club and Black Cat here in DC, not to mention brian's own U Street Music Hall, plus any number of clubs in the United States, I'm hoping it can spawn off other threads as well. "Jack of All Trades; Master of None" - we've all heard that phrase, and it describes me to a T - I know next to nothing about this genre of music, but I'm interested in learning, and I hope some of our masters will chime in and (indirectly) teach me.
