probably not what this thread was intended for..... but:

I picked up Beck's Modern Guilt today, absolutely love it. I really want to get into more Danger Mouse... so where do I start?

if anybody could recommend a few Danger Mouse albums/projects/songs/whatever I'd be eternally grateful. :D

I guess you want the Grey Album and the Gnarls Barkley albums. He also produced Attack & Release by the Black Keys if you don't have that yet.

yesterday i went to a Wooden Shjips gig
not my cup of tea exactly
but if you like this psychedelic rock mixed with stoner a little you will love them
simple bits simple riffs (just a little too monotonous for me)

he also helped produce demon days by gorillaz, and he's in broken bells with james mercer from the shins. i had never listened to gorillaz much until plastic beach came out so i've been meaning to listen to the rest. i like broken bells a lot though, but if you're not really into the shins i could understand not liking it as much.

Everyone, stop what you're doing. Go get the Dark Was The Night compilation. The guys in the National collated it for an HIV/AIDS charity and it's fucking killer.

2. "'Cello Song" (Nick Drake) – The Books featuring Josι Gonzαlez – 3:54
3. "Train Song" (Vashti Bunyan) – Feist and Ben Gibbard – 3:02
4. "Brackett, WI" – Bon Iver – 4:03
5. "Deep Blue Sea" – Grizzly Bear – 3:46
6. "So Far Around the Bend" – The National – 3:43
7. "Tightrope" – Yeasayer – 3:18
8. "Feeling Good" (Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse) – My Brightest Diamond – 3:54

11. "Big Red Machine" – Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner – 4:39
12. "Sleepless" – The Decemberists – 7:54
13. "Stolen Houses (Die)" – Iron & Wine – 1:07
14. "Service Bell" – Grizzly Bear and Feist – 2:23
15. "You Are the Blood" (Castanets) – Sufjan Stevens – 10:14

4. "El Caporal" – My Morning Jacket – 3:33
5. "Inspiration Information" (Shuggie Otis) – Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – 4:06
6. "With a Girl Like You" (Reg Presley) – Dave Sitek – 3:27
7. "Blood Pt. 2" (Castanets) – Buck 65 Remix (featuring Sufjan Stevens & Serengeti) – 3:36
8. "Hey, Snow White" (Destroyer) – The New Pornographers – 4:26
9. "Gentle Hour" (Peter Gutteridge) – Yo La Tengo – 5:31
10. "Another Saturday" – Stuart Murdoch – 2:56

Tracks 3-6 on the first disc alone are just such an amazing run of music that it's worth whatever money your record store charges for it. Not to mention, it's a very pretty like package and it's for charity.

Driving Wheel:

http://bt.etree.org/...s.php?id=534657


One of the best new bands around, their first record comes out sometime this summer, but they play all over the Midwest. They're from somewhere in Missouri, and they are, like, Southern-fried swampadelic Hendrix-y bluesy, boozy...but with that Stonesy swagger and actually deep lyrics. One singer sounds like Warren Haynes (but blacker), the other one sounds a bit like Lennon. Total bluesy on one hand, but very catchy songwriting (shit gets stuck in your head), with a goal jazz-inflected rock and roll rhythm section (the bass player reminds me of Geezer Butler, and the drummer is Mitch Mitchell re-incarnated.)
it's pretty bluesy, but rocking at the same time. They also incorporate elements of jazz (lots of improv and jamming), soul, funk, gospel, and country.

The Steepwater Band:

http://bt.etree.org/...s.php?id=534865

Another bad-ass band not a lot of people have heard of. Marc Ford of the Black Crowes produced their last record, and it is really, really good. Their guitar player is insane (reminds me of a Truth-era Jeff Beck) and the rhythm section is as smooth as Fleetwood Mac's. I first saw them a couple years ago in Chicago - also saw them open up for Gov't Mule a few months ago...they simply rock, but with a bluesy bend to it.

Just wanted to throw a couple links to everyone here in the LR, maybe you like it, maybe it's not your "cup o' tea"...
Anyway, check 'em out!

i have to disagree with you there. yes he made the black keys more accessible, but more dull? i think the black keys were getting slightly dull and formulaic with magic potion (i still love that record) and dangermouses production on attack and release made them interesting again. i love the old records as much as i love attack and release, for different reasons. but some of the little touches and atmospheric things on attack and release are what make it such an awesome record. yes its polished but its still heavy as shit..."i got mine" is one of the most hard-hitting black keys songs, that intro and that chorus are just EXPLOSIVE.
