16 Aug 2009, 03:24 by pessimysticaFor about the past 30 years in alternative rock, new-wave, post-punk, goth rock, grunge, indie, & other similar genres, the following are many of my personal favorite basslines to play along to. I have included songs that helped me learn how to play the bass (in the mid 90s), songs that i personally tabbed out for myself & an online page I had up for many years (RIP, Geocities - message me if you want the tab for the linked tracks &/or with the play icon), & songs i keep coming back to to either play along or just enjoy the bass blasting thru my speakers. Sure, there could be many more, but these are specifically ones that I can play & have listened to constantly... so they are, for the most part, not exceedingly difficult, but many are very fun! I even left some of the easy ones for variety... so hopefully anyone who sees this, particularly those that play bass guitar, will find some that they enjoy as much as i have :) Also, feel free to post any of your personal favorites below that could fit this list. …
3 Feb 2009, 15:47 by ontarioemperorI am no expert on Australian music. And it's questionable whether you can sum up "Australian music" as a singular item, especially when you consider the country is fully or partially responsible for artists as varied as Helen Reddy, the Bee Gees, Midnight Oil, Steven Hodson's favorite Flash and the Pan, and countless others.
But if I were to pick out a distinctively Australian artist, I'd go with The Church. I go back a long way with them; back when I was writing a music 'zine, there was another music 'zine called From Ears and Mouth that featured the Church and its members frequently - so frequently that I was waiting for the 'zine to feature an Under the Milky Way candy bar.
Well, this morning on my drive to work, I was listening to the Midnight Juggernauts CD (as usual; I just bought it) and happened upon the song Aurora. I know it's not an exact match, but the song hits me as a Church-like song - and thus distinctively Australian.

9 May 2008, 12:19 by lintumiesTake your top twenty artists overall, and list:
a) The first song you heard by them.
b) The song that really got you into them.
c) Your current favorite by them.
1. The Clientele 2,748
a) Emptily Through Holloway
b) When You and I Were Young
c) Since K Got Over Me
Downloaded the first song some time in 2003 but, for a reason that is beyond me, didn't immediately hear the genius in it. Then, in early 2005, I received a mixtape with Policeman Getting Lost on it (thanks starfriend) and was quite smitten. A couple of months later, I came across a second-hand copy of The Violet Hour and, as they say, the rest is history (and the future, I presume).
2. The National 1,179
a) Secret Meeting
b) Secret Meeting
c) Mr. November
Got Alligator from the library in August 2005 and couldn't believe my ears. Too bad that Boxer didn't quite do the same for me, but a great band nevertheless.
3. The American Analog Set 1,023
a) Continuous Hit Music
