@draco-n-eliptic1 his jazz music specifically? Because I love him as guitarist for Wilco on their Star Wars album.

@Kidfried Yeah I would prefer jazz recommendations. I will check out the Star Wars album though

Any Steely Dan fans out there? I just got Donald Fagen's 'Morph The Cat' and it's great, it's even better than Aja in my opinion, and that's saying something. Once Fagen turned his back on the world of the Steelies, albeit temporarily, and by that I just mean when he was producing his own material, he was free to let his jazz rock perfectionism soar, unrestrained to new heights of epic glory.

Heilung are really impressing me at the moment. I don't know what it is, but it's ace.
Black Sabbath are the greatest band of all time, of course. So anything that sounds usually like. l also enjoy stuff like The Mars Volta, Mastodon, Floyd, Opeth.
I really like Kendrick Lamar, old stuff like Onyx, Snoop, DMX etc, and Kanye West just because his albums are great even if he isn't.
I've been listening to a group called Clown Core as well lately. They're possibly evil and will definitely make most people feel a bit uneasy. I'm not sure I like it, but it's better than most current pop music.

@Clutch_Nixon I listen to a lot of Kendrick Lamar too, he's one of the best around right now.

@Clutch_Nixon Do you think Mastodon's music (excluding Emperor Of Sand) that was released after Crack The Skye is better than the material they put out before, or vice versa?

@Kidfried Kendrick is a rare beast. He's accessible, authentic, and didn't run out of steam upon success. That's almost impossible in hip hop.
@draco-n-eliptic1 though I wouldn't call anything they've done "bad", I don't really like anything after once more round the sun. Crack the Skye was a definite high point for me. Emperor of sand was different, but didn't really do much for me.

@Clutch_Nixon Yeah me too, well one of them was awesome but most were not. It's fun if you have the time.

So the Childish Gambino track this is America. Powerful stuff.

I think the use of the iconography in the video hits home pretty hard, the music track itself was ok but the video for me is fantastic.

@kyleforrester87 forgot to reply, but I've listened to it immediately when you posted. I love this track and listen to it quite regularly.

@themcnoisy I think it's a good song, but the music video really makes it something special. Great art direction.

I also enjoy the switching between the more aggressive verses and the more happy choruses.

@kyleforrester87 there was a jfk speech tune at the end of Match of the day 2 on Sunday crazily - the link was Man Citys footballing coming from outerspace. Similar setup with the original lines spread between techno beats. It was really good. Thanks for the recommendation and have another tune by Public Service Broadcasting, Spitfire while Im typing this.

@kyleforrester87 Public Service Broadcasting is great. Best tracks are Elfstedentocht and Spitfire imo.
