Please don’t stop the music

It’s been a long time since I’ve been into music. Weird, I know, but I’ve been going through this phase where I just didn’t want to listen to anything I had on my iTunes/iPod, to a point where I just stopped bringing my nano around with me and would listen to the sounds of people in the streets instead. Which, in a way, was kind of refreshing – to be plugged back into really being aware of my surroundings, the noises of my Hong Kong. 

Still, there’d be times I could unplug it, such as when the minibus driver has some awful Cantopop on the radio turned up, but there wasn’t anything new that I was into, and a lot of the stuff I’d been listening to from September up until around my NY trip brought memories that made me feel weird and icky inside. 

I was really into Kate Voegele for about a week and a half, and then stopped again, but today I was thinking that I’d like to get back into discovering new bands or artists that I like, and breaking out my nano once again, creating a new soundtrack that will later remind me of the months leading up to my big move, and then maybe I’ll even get to see those bands/people play live once I’ve moved!

So…any recommendations? I like most music aside from really cheesy romantic/lovey songs (sorry C-Butt), ‘math rock’ (seriously, what is that about? I just don’t get it, as much as I tried!), and country (again, sorry C-Butt).

  1. Lately I’ve been listening to Madonna’s new cd, Tristan Prettyman, Brandi Carlile, and Leona Lewis. Hope that helps!

  2. You read my recommendations 😉 But also, Empires’ album Howl is great. I just wrote a post on it. http://www.weareempires.com

    Download free!

  3. Do you like Electronica music? Sorta like “house music mixed with jazz.” Uptempo.

  4. Brazilian – particularly Marisa Monte (Memorias, Cronicas e Declaraciones de Amor), Sabrina Malheiros & Bebel Gilberto.

  5. Hmm… I will have to think more and get back…

    good “homework,” lol!
