Well, I'm no expert, as I go back to that 60's and 70's stuff a lot too, as well as the 90's, but.... Jack White (in all his forms, White Stripes, Raconteurs, solo) Gary Clark Jr. (a real motherf***er on the guitar. If you like Hendrix...) Parquet Courts (if you're into Velvet Underground) Modest Mouse (at least their first 3 or 4 albums, most notably The Moon and Antartica) Kings of Leon (again, at least their first 3 or 4) Spoon (maybe a little inconsistent, but just well crafted rock pop) There's a lot of albums where I don't know a lot about the artists, but I love at least one of their albums or maybe they only had 1 or 2 albums...Amy Winehouse (Back to Black), Bon Iver (For Emma, Forever Ago), Fiona Apple (Extraordinary Machine), Postal Service (Give Up), Alabama Shakes, Courtney Barnett (Sometimes I Sit and Think...), MGMT... There's a bunch of bands that I appreciate, but haven't really dove into a whole lot for whatever reason...Radiohead, LCD Sound System, Arcade Fire, Flaming Lips, Queens of the Stone Age, Father John Misty...You don't seem like the type to like any hip-hop, but there's a ton of great rappers out there and they aren't all talking about bitches and money. For me personally, I've been getting more and more into country (or I guess people would call it alt-country) over the last several years: Sturgill Simpson (love his progression from straight country to psychedelic country to big band with the Dap Kings and his next record is supposedly more rock'n'roll...even covered Nirvana on his last one) Jason Isbell (one of the more...moving...lyricists I've heard. I would say sad (but beautiful), but I saw an interview where he prefers 'moving' over 'sad') Chris Stapleton (dude's got soul) Ryan Adams (kind of blends genres a bit, but good singer-songwriter type...) Wilco (also blend genres. I've heard them referred to as a a 'dad band' because they appeal to well...dads). I kind of come across music randomly. I've been a hardcore Dylan fan 15+ years and just recently 'got' Nashville Skyline despite friends telling me it's a classic for years. I thought Willie Nelson was just that cute grandpa who smoked a lot weed with Snoop Dogg until like 3 years ago. I'm not sure I ever even heard of John Prine until about a year ago. I got turned onto Donny Hathaway through Amy Winehouse. I don't know. Again, I'm no expert. I just know what I like, listen to a lot of stuff, and am always looking for more.
