What are you listening to?

Want to talk about some nifty piece of media that isn't Neil-related? This is the place to do it.

Spotify (other streaming services are available (but none have gelled for me as well as Spotify has)) has revolutionised my listening. I mostly listen to instrumental music now, because I can do so while working, and I have several playlists as well as using several of theirs regularly: Cinematic Chillout, Atmospheric SciFi Soundtracks, all of the Daily Mixes they suggest.

The biggest discovery in what I am going to call the Interregnum has been Public Service Broadcasting. I’ve seen them live 3 times in the 5 or so years I’ve been listening to them, more than any other band except Barenaked Ladies.

I have also really got into Synthwave. It amazes me that there are people out there who definitely can’t remember the 80s but make music that is more 80s than the 80s were.

Maybe as a follow up to the CD circle we could make some shareable playlists?

(I used to listen to music in the car and on the train commute, but first those times got taken over by podcasts, and then the train commute stopped having to happen!)

I like the idea of trading playlists.

Ditto!

I remember the CD circle, found some awesome new music that way.

I am totally on board with shared playlists! Spotify or YouTube Music?

Also, Psi -- tell me more about some Synthwave bands. I'm all ears.

I got introduced to the genre by people in the group I go away for gaming weekends with. I haven’t seen any of these bands live but I like to put the Spotify ‘radio’ feature on for tracks I like and when I find others I really like I add them to my playlist, which I’ll work out how to share. I started with this song by Gunship, which is just absolutely amazing, and I have to share the video, because it was crowdsourced from their fans who were asked to recreate classic scenes from 80s films (yes the first one misses that brief a bit but nvm):

One of the most popular bands among my gaming group is Scandroid: https://open.spotify.com/artist/27qG899 ... uwkAWZ5mjA

This is my playlist: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1suTr ... xMRpmUC1Zw

Nice. It strikes me a little like M83 recorded an album in 1987 or thereabouts. The video is great!

Right now, on the podcast front, Old Gods of Appalachia is holding my interest. I even joined their patreon to get some extra story and haven't been disappointed.

Dear Pandora,

While I don’t hate this song, I don’t love it as much as you seem to think I do.

Bandcamp stuff. Lithuanian folk, black metal/screamo combo, fog-themed dungeon synth, and the Emma Ruth Rundle/THOU collab album.
