I put together a list of artists and tracks that currently portray NOW. LISTEN AND ENJOY, or go on surfing for porn.
A couple notes – You’ll notice that their are some music types missing from this mix. Drudge Rock, Rock and Alt staples like the Foos and the Peppers aren’t here. Nothing wrong with that stuff it simply doesn’t represent this Alt rock community.
Music will show up in a site called Finetune. Finetune is pretty cool because you can share exact tracks with your friends and peers! Neat.
Alkaline Trio, Atmosphere, Beck, Carbon Silicon, Carolina Liar, Death Cab For Cutie, Does it Offend You, Yeah?, We Are Rockstars, Duffy, Duke Spirit, Foxboro Hottubs, Futerheads, Last Shadow Puppets, Ludo, MGMT, My Morning Jacket, Nine Inch Nails, PlayRadioPlay!, Radiohead, Santogold, Silversun Pickups, Spoon, The Arcade Fire, The Kooks, The Shins, The Ting Tings, The Wombats, Tilly and The Wall, Tokyo Police Club, Vampire Weekend, We Are Scientists…
Weird music is only weird until it’s hummable. Then when it’s hummable it becomes innately a part of what you know. Everything is weird and new until you know it. So go get acquainted!
