#102 What I’m Listening To: March 2012 Playlist, Part 2 of 2

102 Post-1 Depositphotos_2286999_XS.jpgI was also very pleasantly surprised by the likes of As Fast As, Citizen Cope, The Dandy Warhols, Fatboy Slim, Gorillaz, Kings Of Leon, She Wants Revenge, and Teddybears.

Muse and Wolfmother are the new gods of neo-progressive, right alongside The Mars Volta and The Flaming Lips. Of those four bands, I can’t think of a single song any of them do that I don’t like. But, then again, I love novel and weird, together with complicated time signatures.

Thom Yorke seems to be a bit too preoccupied with weird-for-weird’s-sake noises from modern-age synthesizers for my tastes, whereas Radiohead is pure bliss. And Eve 6 is better than I ever gave them credit for. Queens Of The Stone Age are as weird and wonderful as I had hoped, especially given their several smash hits. 311 have got some sort of updated Police white-reggae thing going that I really like.

I love Phoenix for their quirkiness (and didn’t even realize they were French). Band Of Skulls is, to my mind, the new Foo Fighters; they’ve got a ton of potential. Supergrass was a disappointment, as was Bombay Bicycle Club.

And as much as I love Coldplay, I can’t help but think that their lush production values lend themselves more to slick public relations than any higher musical aspirations. Yeah, I’m a cynical bastard, even regarding music.

Back to the music …
