Musical Tuesday – Music Tips for the Wicked

September 1, 2009 at 1:02 pm (Musical Tuesday, Themed Tuesday)

Welcome to Musical Tuesday!

Every once in a while I will use musical tuesday to vent my opinion of music and hopefully give you, the audience, some usefull tips of what you could be listening to right now!

Today 3 great bands get the spotlight, we’ll begin with:

Silversun Pickups
Silversun Pickups is a great band from Los Angeles, CA. Their style can best be compared to The Smashing Pumpkins but is also has some of the characteristics of Placebo (with who they are touring with as support act!) and The Velvet Underground. Their latest album Swoon is a nice trip trough the world of Rock and Roll as it mixes hard and powerful guitar riffs with sensitive singing and thomping basslines. A must-listen for fans of early (pre-Nirvana) grunge and alternative.

Them Crooked Vultures
What a line-up, seriously! If you got a band with Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal) and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) it’s not hard to understand why you should definitely listen to this band. The music is best described as Queens of the Stone Age on Acid (if that’s not the case already) and is also known as 8436 2766533 88588737. A must-listen for any self respecting rock fan

Dizzee Rascall
Currently getting very well known with his hit single Bonkers but his other stuff is also worth a listen. I’m putting Dizzee in here because of the awesome show he gave at Lowlands Festival 2009 and from what I heard his perfomance at Pukkelpop was just as cool. On his new album Dizzee collaborates with some of the dance scene greatest hero’s (Calvin Harris, Armand van Helden) and it makes for a very enjoyable hip hop album. A must listen for hip hop fans and hipsters in general!
