Oh man, I was just thinking about posting some Gojira here too. They're pretty great. Also, that's neat that they're from the same town as you. So cool!
@EisenKoubu - That's an awesome track. Thanks for sharing! There should be a collection of Jun Maeda music somewhere, lol.
@IkaCZ - Carbon Based Lifeforms is awesome for BG music, yeah. Maybe I'll try having them on in the background while writing or whatever else needs more intense focus. (I dislike silence. I even have an old wind-up analog clock just for making ticking noises when the music is off, lol.)
@Pepe - Woah. I've never heard MintJam before. Definitely going to be checking some more of their stuff out.
@Aeroxe - Man, you nailed it there. I don't listen to Modest Mouse much, but Weezer and Radiohead are pretty fun. My favorite from Radiohead would be Creep. It's harder to pick for Weezer though...
@Bizkitdoh - Checked out Rosetta. I really like the lengths of their songs. (A lot of bands don't do long songs, which is disappointing to me.) The overall sound was really nice.
Sorry, I couldn't get caught up on everything here just yet. Lots of awesome though.
I'll just place these here:
exist†trace - Ambivalence
This is a J-Metal~ish track. (Not very strong though.) I've been listening to exist†trace for awhile now. They've semi-recently transitioned to a pop rock style. I don't quite like their new stuff, but it's probably just the style change and me trying to hold onto their past works. (Like Judea
State Radio - Mr. Larkin
Completely different from exist†trace. This is just a normal (English) rock song. The story is nice. I've heard of some people crying when they listen to it closely. (I have trouble imagining it, but the story is rather sentimental.) Overall it's a really fun song. State Radio is one of my favorite bands. (Based on play count.) I think this is a good introduction song to them.
The Replacements - The Ledge
This one's also in English. '90s~ rock song. The guitar work and the lyrics are great, IMO. This one always makes me think of the BBC's Sherlock series. Weird video.
