The Wood Brothers, standup acoustic bass, guitar. Good stuff :wink:

I have that CD. Its awsome. My fav song is Luckiest Man. Oliver Wood's voice is so perfect for thier style.

Yes, I live in geezerville as well.
Some of the newer stuff in my collection is:

The Wood Brothers - The Wood Brothers
Procupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet
Rush - Sanakes and Arrows (I think thier best work in a long time. I hope they never stop making music)
Widespread Panic - Earth to America
Shawn Lane and Jonas Hellborg

I forgot in my first list to include Metric (I haven't got the rips of the music at work yet) - a really great band that I found out about the last time I was back visiting in Toronto. They are a "power pop" / alternative band with a heavy dose of synthesizers but still a good amount of guitar and some rather interesting lyrics. Well worth listening to. They are sort of in the same style as The New Pornographers which is also worth listening to.

I've been listening to Jackie Greene, a folk/blues/rock singer-songwriter from California. An incredible singer with a gorgeous baritone voice that sounds much older than he is, and a hell of a guitar, piano, organ, and harmonica player. He's touring with Phil Lesh (of Grateful Dead fame) this year, I believe.

The new White Stripes album Icky Thump really is fantastic. It's nice to see a real rock album debut at #1. "Little Cream Soda" is one of my favorites.

For you folkie/indie/melodic acoustic types out there, "Music from the Motion Picture Once" is an album of beautiful songs from a very interesting indie film, written by Glen Hansard of The Frames and performed by Hansard and Marketa Irglova, who has a wonderful, haunting voice.

Pops Walker is an acoustic blues artist with kind of a funky, rhythmic edge and compelling slide technique. Not too famous, but my dad knew him in the army, and his new CD Milepost 5 is damn good.

Not sure when it was produced, but the bluegrass tribute to U2 (Pickin' on U2) is actually fantastic, unlike every other genre-crossing tribute album I've heard (I've gotten so many of those "string quartet tributes to x" cds as birthday presents, since I like classical music and x. Nice thought, but they all seem to suck). Bono's vocal lines are played either by slide guitar or fiddle generally, and the banjo/guitar/mandolin/fiddle combination evokes the cosmic beauty of some of U2's best instrumental backings supririsngly well.

I haven't heard it, but I've also heard good things about the Elliott Smith posthumous compilation album New Moon.

(And for old music, Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton--where have you been all my life?)

Ahhhh....
The Genisis of the Les Paul w/PAF HB's through a Marshall 50 watt tube amp 8) :D

My Favorite Clapton album is Layla,
Though the 'Beano' album is a close 2nd.

Clapton was playing like he had something to prove and made a name for himself doing it.

For some great TAB of 'All Your Love',
check out the 'easy song' section for AK's wonderful contribution.

I was going to add that today. I haven't bought a Rush album since the abysmal Presto!. I've been listening to, erm... a friend's copy in the the car and it really is quite good. I still struggle with Geddy's vocals though.

Regards,
Paul

Keller Williams. Some of the best guitar I've heard. he plays a lot of instruments, which he loops using a gibson echoplex. It sounds, and looks awesome. in my opinion he is the most talented all around musician of recent years.

The albums "Jane Doe" (2001) and "No Heroes" (2006) by Converge (a seriously heavy metalcore group). A friend of mine from Holland played me "Jane Doe" when I was staying at his house this weekend. I'm now hooked :D

The songs "Minerva" and "Hexagram" (both 2003) by Deftones, who I just can't stop listening to in general.

and lastly

a band formed in '79 (but new to me) Hüsker Dü ; pronounced "who-ska-do", an American rock band. Over the weekend I was lucky enough to see thier live DVD called "Live From The Camden Palace", which was filmed in London on 14th May 1985, and released on DVD on the 5th February 2007.

Rush's Snakes and Arrows and NIN's Year Zero are up there for me - was a great spring, as they are two of my all time favorite bands.

In just the last few months months, I was turned onto Buckethead, which led to checking out Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie Brains, which led to Primus / Les Claypool. I don't know how these all slipped under my radar for years - obviously I'd heard of Primus, but never listened too much.

Those three are what I'm listening to most these days. Mostly live bootlegs - got some soundboard recordings purchased from primuslive.com and c2b3live.com, while there are some great free Buckethead bootlegs available at archive.org. Some truly great music from these guys, IMO.

I saw Bucketheead last year. Small club in Atlantic City NJ. Was quite a show. The guy can play. Have a few of his CDs as well. WHile I enjoyed the music, about half way through the show I thought to myself, "I'm standing here watching a guy play guitar with a chicken bucket on his head." Its funny at first but the novelty wears off rather quickly. (Now if it were a candle, THAT would be different!)

Then you may also like Sugar, which features the same singer/songwriter, Bob Mould. Their 1992 album Copper Blue is one of my favourites. They also have a couple of EP's.

I'm listening to Karcius, an instrumental band who plays some kind of progressive-rock / jazz fusion.

I discovered them trough my guitar teacher, who's the guitarist of this band. Now, I have a new teacher cause the one who plays in Karcius is touring in Europe... :( He was a very good teacher!

If you want to hear what kind of music they're doing: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=98153472
