I want to make this thread a much better version of our past "now playing threads". Instead of just saying the exact song band and album that you are listening too at the moment, take some time to discuss what you have been listening too. Mention what it is, any interesting information, and any opinions that you have on it. Feel free to also link some songs or videos that go along with it. I have been trying to musically expand in all directions. Recent guy I have been checking out is a true old school badass. Mr. Tom Waits ^ clicky This guy's voice makes my junk get harrier every time I hear it. What I dig is the way he writes songs. As a songwriter myself, someone like him really makes a big personal impact. Especially the way he constructs his vocal melodies, it differs greatly from the way that other singer songwriters, such as Lennon, Bowie, Dylan, and others that have so far influenced myself. A breath of(bourbon laced) fresh air. Note- This thread is for light casual discussion carried out over the subject of many bands. If you want to discuss a band in depth please make a thread about it.
