Thanks for those, Laura!
Indeed.  I've listened to Elephants quite a few times already.  Probably my favorite of their tracks.

Happy to hear!

Now:
Phantogram - When I'm Small

Nice! I've been working on my Super Sad Piano Piece all afternoon, and this has been a great palate cleanser. I'm with Cat Power now:

Very nice and soulful, that. I like it.

Only 90s kids will remember… this extremely cheesy cover of a song that was pretty cheesy to begin with:

Love it.  Here's a Cat Power song I heard recently that I enjoyed:

Cat Power - He War


Dave Grohl plays the drums on that one, but it's not a stand-out drum track.  I love the guitar in this.

Here's what I'm listening to now:

Elliott - Intro


Now this song has some fantastic drumming.

Nice tracks, guys~

Had this on in the background yesterday (cheers, @Kyriakos). Mainly reverb-y guitar. It's a game score, so it can be a bit repetitive, but some tracks remind me of Twin Peaks type music:

That's a nice groove.

I'm listening to Slowreader's album.  It's really good stuff.

Slowreader - Sweetest Suffering

Nice, all of this has given me something to listen to.

"Crown Imperial Song" is pretty well known in Norway, but maybe not elsewhere? (YouTube also has a music video of it, but with poorer sound quality.)

I hadn't heard of Weld, but that is a cool track. Sounds very 90's to me. The singer has a unique voice for sure.

Dact, I'm getting an 'unavailable' message when I try to play your track. Weird - maybe it has been removed?

I've actually never heard this before, but there's no mistaking the quick back and forth zoom in and out - nothing more 90's than that. (laugh) Argh this track is almost annoyingly catchy! Going to have it in my head all day now haha.

Not bad.  It has a kind of late 60's early 70's hippie flower child vibe in my mind.  Something like "Turn! Turn! Turn!" by The Byrds, "Somebody to Love" by Jefferson Airplane, or "California Dreamin'" by The Mamas & the Papas, but definitely a bit more modern.  Fits with the 90's, there was a lot of music in that era that hearkened back to the 60's and 70's.

When Ennio Morricone goes rock.
Great track.

RIP
Indeed.

Ennio Morricone - Here's to You (feat. Joan Baez)

Maybe it's region locked or something.  Try this one:

^Hmmm, that one is also unavailable. Very strange.

That first track you shared is great. Very Carpenters sounding (which is great in my books).

My son and I gave Cuphead a try today for the first time, so I have had the soundtrack in my head the past few hours. They actually do mid-century music really well. Feels like I'm five years old in my grandma's living room again! (laugh)

Ennio Morricone - Here's to You (feat. Joan Baez)
That was from a great film by Montaldo, Sacco & Vanzetti, with a fantastic performance by Gian Maria Volonté. Also, great score by Ennio Morricone and Joan Baez.

I think this is it. I can access this one:

That's the correct song and artist, but that's an awful recording.  So much crowd noise, you can barely hear the song.  Maybe you can check it on Spotify.  Too bad there aren't more YouTube links available for it.  It's a great album, I'd recommend tracking it down and listening to the whole thing.  Like Elliott Smith with a drum machine.  Both guys were in The Impossibles and The Stereo before this:

The Impossibles - Eightball


The barbershop intro of Cuphead reminds me of Moxy Früvous (as all well harmonized vocals seem to do):

Moxy Früvous - King of Spain


Not the best song on the album (my favorite might be Laika), and not the best example of their vocal harmonies (which might be Fell in Love), but it's a great example of their quirkiness.  Bargainville is a fantastic album.  Anyone else love this band?

The rest of Cuphead is very big band / swingy.  Fitting for the visual style of the game.  Not really my thing, so admittedly I only skimmed through it, but it's definitely well written and performed.

Current jam:

Girlpool - Like I'm Winning It

Gotta catch up with some of the recent picks in this thread.

This is a track and an album I keep coming back to:



That speech at the end is of course adapted from the famous rant in Network, written by Paddy Chayefsky. I've never been able to make up my mind whether Badu is appropriating the sentiment ("I'm a human being, damn it! My life has value!" seems to prefigure BLM) or holding it up as a dangerous example of white rage and hysteria.

Fun fact: the contemporary sense of "woke" comes from the next track off this album, "Master Teacher."

Yes, that's a fantastic track.  I was only listening casually and found so much poignancy in her words.  I've loved Erykah Badu since hearing her on the Roots' Things Fall Apart album (You Got Me) and OutKast's Stankonia:

OutKast - Humble Mumble


"You can't discrimi-hate cause you done read a book or two" is one of my favorite lyrics of all time.

Listening to this track now, I absolutely love it:

Tripping Daisy - Waited A Light Year
