Acoustic + (ish) Mellow-Sunrise/set Beats and You...

Ya Krunk'd Floo
I go through phases that I can't explain where I suddenly focus on a particular genre of music. About 10 months ago, I was all hip to hip-hop and not really listening to much else. Then, during a road-trip, I bumped into my friend's Audioslave albums and got totally hooked back on rock. This led me to re-finding my love of all things Rage and also quitely reviewing my old Chillis stuff...

However...

I always need some chilled-out acoustic shit to quiet my mind after a busy day. On the home stretch after work, the only genre buzzing in my ear-buds is something I like to call 'whatever the subject of this thread is'.

Here are some of the dudes who help quiet my mind with their mellow mood music:

Sublime - not the punky stuff, but that acoustic album is great. 'Badfish' is one of my all-time favorites. (I do like the punk stuff they do, but that's not what I'm talking about here...)

The Beautiful Girls - perfect, perfect sunny-mood, acoustic songs. No one else seems to have heard of them but, they're from Oz, they're surfers, and they make good tunes. Freedom (Part 2) is the most listened to song on my iTunes.

Jack Johnson - I was into him way back before he got 'big'. Nuhh-nuhh. This makes me cool. Or not.

Donvan Frankenreiter - like Jack, but more of a flower-power dude. 'What'cha know About' is great.

Ben Harper - I don't love all of his albums, but the second cd on the 'Live From Mars' album is excellent.

Seu Jorge - 'The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions' is perfect slow spooning music. No joke. Try it.

Slightly Stoopid - some of their albums are a bit dodgy (Most of 'Everything You Need' - bar Mellow Mood and Collie Man), but 'Acoustic Roots' is whatimtalkingabout. Mellow Mood is their best tune by far.

Mishka - great, great, great acoustic blissed-out reggae. 'Out The Door' is excellent.

Bob Marley - I'm sure you know about him...I can't get bored of 'Legend' as an album or 'Lively Up Yourself' as a song.

John Butler Trio - another aussie band who can melt any up-tight mood. I'm currently loving Peaches & Cream the most.

Anyway, all these dudes bring me mentally closer to the greatest place on Earth - The beach. There's something in the un-hurried, sliding, relaxed nature of their music that is able to induce me to a state of brain-rest.

Anyone else got any similar recommendations? As a sub-subject, I invite you to discuss why and when you listen to particular musical genres...Welcome.

Here's a physical representation of the kind of music I'm talking about...

Ya Krunk'd Floo
OK, I'm going to have to add Xavier Rudd to that list. Have you heard 'Food In The Belly'?!?! That's what I'm talking about!

Bardock42
I am very proud of myself for knowing two of the artists you mentioned.

Ya Krunk'd Floo
I'm going to run on a knob of butter and guess that you are refering to Bob Marley and Jack Johnson. Would that be correctamundo?

jaden101
soul refreshing by robert randolph and the family band...

the veneer album by jose gonzalez is good to chill to as well

some tunes by delays are good summer relaxing songs

You sir, are a genius....up there with Holmes and Maigret.

Ya Krunk'd Floo
That 'Soul Refreshing' tune reminds me of the Isley Brothers...'Summer Breeze' is an all-time classic summer tune!

Jose Gonzalez - Veneer

simply great acoustic album

papabeard
Bright Eyes - Im Wide Awake its morning

Albatross by Fleetwood Mac

Jimmy Cliff - Many Rivers to cross

MC Mike
I think Sublime, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, and Bob Marley are excellent... I will have to check those other ones out as well.

Must agree here.

It's on my playlist when I'm at work. Heartbeats just doesn't get old.

Ya Krunk'd Floo
Thanks for the heads up on Jose Gonzalez! I'm dig-dig-digging 'Crosses'.

If you like Sublime, then try Slightly Stoopid, especially 'Acoustic Roots'.

Jack Johnson = Donovan Frankenreiter, his tunes are so laid-back.

Ben Harper = Xavier Rudd, there's a little bit of Paul Simon in him, too...

Bob Marley = Mishka - his music is 'Redemption Song'-style Reggae.

Love Bob, Ben, Jack, Donovan and JBT. Turin Brakes are nice for a road trip to the beach, as are The Black Seeds and Katchafire (two NZ reggae bands). Ziggy Marley's Dragonfly album is pretty good to.

Have yet to check on Stoopid, Rudd, and Mishka but Donovan and the Girls are very good indeed. thumb up

Ya Krunk'd Floo
Yeah, The Beautiful Girls have some excellent tunes - Music, The Ocean, Freedom (Part 2), So It Seems, etc, etc, etc...Same goes for our man, Don. Although, he only has one album so far...

People should really give Xavier Rudd a try. Both his albums are excellent. I'm currently oops-upside-my-head about 'Let Me Be' from Solace. It's tip-top.

jaden101
listened to jbt for a while now...great stuff...xavier rudd has about equal good and not so good tunes....i checked out everyone mentioned in this thread...especially liked donovan frankenreiter

also be able to check out Ben Harper live cause he's playing T this year

Ya Krunk'd Floo
Yeah, JBT are an excellent band. I love 'Peaches & Cream' from 'Sunrise Over Sea', especially around the 3 minute 48 second mark when the drums finally kick-in.

I like Xavier Rudd, but it's true about the inconsistency. The first two songs on 'Food In The Belly' are great, but the rest are a bit lacking. 'Solace' has a generally higher standard of songs, though.

As for ol' Donovan, he's great. That whole album is filled with great tunes. 'It Don't Matter', 'Make You Mine' and 'What'cha Know About' are consistently on my playlists.

Yes, Iron and Wine is quite awesome.

Ya Krunk'd Floo
I received my copy of 'Sounding a Mosaic' by Bedouin Soundclash the other day, and it has been on my iPod constantly ever since. The whole album is great, but my favorite tracks are When The Night Feels My Song, Money Worries, Jeb Rand and Murder On The Midnight Wire - "It was a bang, blame, bang / The public wants an answer tonight / And this boy has no alibi..." - great chorus.

The songs are funky, catchy and have a great roots feel to them.

I mentioned them to a Canadian friend of mine the other day, and he told me they're actually from Ontario! 'Canadian Reggae' is no longer an oxymoron! He was also kind enough to burn me a copy of an earlier album they did which is unavailable at Amazon.com. It's got a slightly different feel to the roots reggae of 'Sounding a Mosaic', but it's still an excellent album. My favorite track on it is probably 'Johnny Go To New York'.

Thanks again to Jaden101 for the word. They're a great band.

once again no problem mate...always good to pass on info on a band and for someone to appreciate it... big grin

Ya Krunk'd Floo
For sure. I'm always surprised by how many great, little-known bands/singers there are out there. People sometimes forget that music extends beyond the what's hot on 'Amazon - iTunes - Charts' trinity. Before I started this thread, I had never heard of Jose Gonzalez or Bedoiun Soundclash, now they get a lot of play on my pod.

Ya Krunk'd Floo

I've been listening to them a lot recently. They're cool. In a similar style to Jose Gonzalez and Damien Rice.

Can anyone recommend me someone/thing a bit more up-beat though? Along the lines of my man Donovan Frankenreiter...

I've just ordered Matt Costa's 'Songs We Sing', anyone else heard it?

try a band called mofro

http://www.mofro.net/

the songs "air" and "six ways from sunday" i think you might like

Ya Krunk'd Floo
Gold again, my man! I'm liking what I've heard from them so far. The label 'Front Porch Soul' fits perfectly.

jaden101
just recently heard them myself...one of my first thoughts when i heard it was to post the name in this thread

Ya Krunk'd Floo
jaden101, I've got one for you:

Michael Franti - 'Songs From The Front Porch'

It's hard to describe his style, but he's got a roots vibe, some acoustic R&B/soul rhythms, a little hip-hop and the lyrics are great.

jaden101
a band i was sure had already been mentioned on here but i was apparently wrong i think pretty much hits what you're looking

probably the most ridiculous name ever too

G.Love and special sauce

their stuff is lashed with more than a little humour...but its good stuff

http://www.philadelphonic.com/main.asp?mainNavId=2

Ya Krunk'd Floo
Yeah, I've heard a few tracks by ol' G. Love and Special Sauce. They're on a couple of surf movie soundtracks made by Jack Johnson and his Moonshine Conspiracy collective. The tracks I've heard are pretty good, but I've yet to get my hands on a whole album...

Ya Krunk'd Floo
Got a new one for you, Jaden...

ALO - Fly Between Falls

They've been signed to Jack Johnson's label, and they recently supported him on tour. They're cool and funky.

This is one of their best tracks:

Girl, I Wanna Lay You Down

They even reference your name in one of their tracks!

jaden101

I just noticed that 'Waiting for Jaden' has a lyric in it about 'hot sex, erect nipples...something, something'! Very weird.

Ya Krunk'd Floo
Matt Costa's 'Songs We Sing' has really grown on me recently. I love 'Astair', 'Sunshine'. 'Yellow Taxi', and 'Cold December'. They are such sweet, melodious tunes.

http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B000ACJHIY.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Donovan Frankenreiter's new album, 'Move By Yourself' is also cool. My favorite track at the moment is 'All Around Us'. It's a really optimistic album with a lot of soul.

Hey, baby...

It's true about that lyric:

"So we were waiting, waiting for Jaden, oooh...

We wanted to have you naturally
So we searched out all the possible remedies
Hot sex, nipple stimulation, castor oil, and gory movies
And by that Friday
They were threatening to induce
And we pleaded with you to come out
And call it a truce

Jaden can't you hear what we say, your mother and I want you to come out and play..."

How weird!

Also, this thread should have its name changed to 'Jaden & Floo's Music Palace'. We're the only ones who seem to post in it!

Oh I totally understand. My ex plays acoustic. I love it but outside of him, didnt know of many artist. After looking at his stuff on you tube there, I found Erik Mongrain on myspace and sent him a message there... he seems like a nice guy. He recommended I check out someone by the name of Michael Hedges and told me of an album that should be out by winter. I look forward to hearing more for sure. happy

I liked Powderfinger for a while, but now I find them a bit stale. What kind of feel does 'Tea And Sympathy' have?

jaden101
whereas powderfinger stuck, for the most part, to rock tunes...tea and sympathy is almost predominantly feel good acoustic...quite pop like as well

http://main.losthighwayrecords.com/product.aspx?pid=1700&ob=rl&src=lb

he's signed as a solo artist to the same label as ryan adams...donovan frankenreiter...lyle lovett...tift merrit.

wouldn't have been able to tell cause you're not allowed to smoke in public places in Scotland anymore...

i'll say this though...his speaking voice is very quiet and high pitched...he's says very little when he's on stage beyond "thank you very much"

yeah tea and sympathy is a great album...i personally dont think there is a bad track on it which is surprising given its length...and yeah...hope and validation is ace

got a pretty decent view at the Ray gig...at front...not at centre unfortunately

Nice shot! That's funny about his speaking voice considering his singing voice is so gravely.

Ya Krunk'd Floo
I can't remember if you've mentioned him before - and I'm too lazy to retread the thread - but I've recently been listening to Mason Jennings. I think he's signed to the same label as Donavan Frankenreiter, and there are some similarities, but he really strikes me as a more optimistic Bob Dylan. Praise indeed!

Anyway, he's got a few albums out, but the ones I've been listening to are Use Your Voice and Boneclouds. 'If You Need A Reason' on Boneclouds is a really beautiful song.

jaden101
i'm sure i've come across his stuff somewhere...perhaps got lost in the crowd though...will need to check it out again

There's some great, smooth tracks on there, but I've yet to find one as perfect as 'Keep It Loose, Keep It Tight'.

check out youtube for amos lee live at abbey road...keep it loose keep it tight is superb

No! I don't want to...Ok, I will.

Keep It Loose, Keep It Tight is the most played song on my iTunes. It's so good. I love the lines: "But the people on the street / Out on buses or on feet / We all got the same blood flow." So, like, real, maaaaan.

Ever heard of Citizen Cope? He (They?) has (have?) a few albums out. It's a little weird, but some of it is really good. Check it out. One time.

The Clarence Greenwood Recordings is a good place to start. Son's Gonna Rise is a tune.

Nellinator
I didn't realize that this was such an exclusive thread. But yah, Bob Marley is cool. Stabilo is cool too for mellowness.

Plush by STP unplugged is currently my favourite acoustic song along with Landslide by Fleetwood Mac.

Ya Krunk'd Floo
It's a bit of a love-fest, but all are welcome if you want to make it a gang-bang.

Stablio...I really like what I've heard from them so far, they definitely fit. Thanks for the recommendation.

Nellinator
I don't know if he has been mentioned yet, but Michael Hedges is one of the best acoustic guitarists I've ever heard.

Not very mellow and purely instrumental, but cool stuff on a very cool guitar.

Ya Krunk'd Floo
Kidding Ourselves is a tune and a half.

Nellinator
Yep.

I thought I'd mention Jason Mraz and Emilini Torrini (like Twilight) too.

Ya Krunk'd Floo
Seriously, I listened to the whole of Happiness & Disaster today; it's a great album. It's very similar in style to Bernard Fanning's Tea & Sympathy, which I also love.

Favorite tracks: Don't Look In Their Eyes, Flawed Design, Happiness & Disaster, Kidding Ourselves, Coffee Spills, If It Was Up To Me, and Everybody. All great tunes.

Thanks again, Nellinator.

Jaden, you on to this?

Here in Aus-town, JBT are well-liked, as well as The Beautiful Girls... but Tea and Sympathy's popularity is regarded, by some, due to the popularity of Powderfinger... of course, completely overlooking the fact that it's a good album in its own right.

I was already into JBT, Ben Harper and Jack Johnson, but I've decided to check out Xavier Rudd and Donavon Frankreiter as well.

On a different note, it's good to see a thread where there's no arguing over 'this band is crap! blah blah' wink

Ya Krunk'd Floo
The new John Butler Trio album, Grand National, is perfect for the lead up to summer. There are some great tracks: Caroline, Groovin' Slowly, Losing You, Nowhere Man, Fire In The Sky, and Gonna Take It, to name a few.

Yeah, there's some great tunes on that Happiness & Disaster album: Don't Look In Their Eyes, Ordinary, Coffee Spills, and Beautiful Madness are my favorites, but their all good.

Again, that new John Butler Album is fantastic. Losing You is perfect, it's such a sweet song.

Careful, I'm behind you, naked. And hard.

You know it, too. Pretending you don't so that when insertion occurs you can act surprised.

In fact I do...you should check out The Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs....pretty great. All loveish though...and since your heart is just so evil and cold you might not like it at all.

As for the mastery of ****ing words, you are not ready.
