New acquaintances

These past few weeks, I’ve been discovering new music. American, British, Dutch, French, German, Norwegian, Portuguese and Swedish bands have passed by my ears, spanning the last 4 decades of music from classical to metal, from electronic to progressive.

A band that has caught my attention is Anathema. They started in the early nineties as a doom metal band, but their sound has since evolved to a kind of melodic, ambient alternative/post/art rock that I really like!

I still have much to discover from them, but this song stands out:

It reminds me of a heavier Radiohead (the good stuff, not like this), but they have their own touch – Do not consider them a Radiohead rip-off!

Hope you liked it! Next time I’ll be here with more stuff that I’ve recently discovered in my quest for new music. That, or maybe a re-edition of one the posts I enjoyed most doing, Astounding Songs, Amazing Covers (pun intended)…

Roads [Part 4/4]

…continuation of:
Song that made us what we are today [Part 1/4]
Judas Rising [Part 2/4]
Dreams of a Journey [Part 3/4]

…and last but not least, here’s my fourth thankful post.

You know those days when you just want to be in silence? That was me a year ago cutting the noise in the surroundings, only listening to new age/instrumental quiet music, but after a whole year of musical isolation I met this other girl that somehow reactivated the flame for music discovery again and introduced me to a new genre : alternative/indie.

Thanks for Radiohead, Beirut, Arcade Fire, Portishead, The National and so many other great musicians that had become my favorite too.
My lonely walks around Lisbon turned into something amazing with Kid A album playing out loud in my mp3 player. Here’s one of my favorite:

Radiohead – Idioteque

By the way, she’s got her own musical spot that I suggest you all take a look 😉

Et voilà! Thanks to those 4 great friends I’ve discovered the pleasure of music through rock, metal, instrumental and alternative perspectives. I hope now I can also present you some new musics in this blog =)
Next time I’ll share another youtube private link so come again =D

PS: The post title is just a reference to a song from Portishead that I didn’t put here only because she was faster than me and posted it in the Eclectic Stereo Land. Go check it anyway =)

PPS: private joke: self-estimations songs you called them anh? =P
