Who's in your Playlist

Working a job where you can listen to music of your choice is such a blessing. This also means when you are working 40 hours a week and 8 hours a day you end up getting bored of the same old music. Bands tend to blend together and or you just seem to get sick of certain styles. Then there are those bands and or musicians that transcend all expectations. Chad might hurt me for this because he isn't considered "indie" but i love Jeff Buckley, I am constantly coming back to his records. I recommend starting with the record Sketches for my Sweetheart the Drunk. I think Jeff Buckley has been great for the "indie" scene though, I have found many bands have tried to copy his magical voice. For a 90's singer he doesn't have a raw and abrasive voice, but a soothing and comforting style. Let me know if you enjoy him.

jeff buckley rips my guts out. it's hard to listen to him without either weeping or wanting to never play music again. grace is a perfect record, but so are all the other ones. that song "what will you say?" from mystery white boy? are you serious? god, and don't get me started on the Sin-E stuff, or that take on "satisfied mind" that is gorgeous and THEN he clears his throat and really lets it rip
