I've been listening to good ol' rock 'n roll music of the 50s, like Tequila, Yakety Yak, and We're Gonna Rock Around The Clock! Good stuff!

Oh yeah, that's also really good! I remember listening to it very often last year!

Always classics! There's so much nostalgia to that era of rock n' roll.

Me too! Listening to it almost daily right now!

EDIT: Just downloaded my own copy off of YouTube.

Isn't that crazy? I had the same experience a couple months ago. Not only did I get my album 4 days before its release, but it also came with a signed 5x5 of the cover art.

Who was it and where did you order the pre-lease?

Saw New Order for the second time, in the O2 in London, a couple of weeks ago. Love their shows as they're filled with positivity and performed at a high quality. It feels slightly odd that there is a parallel Peter Hook and the Light, both outfits laying claim to the Joy Division and New Order lineage. It was great to enjoy a reintroduction to the world of live music, and in fact in the same week as seeing them I also went to see a much more up-and-coming shoegaze outfit called Bdrmm who put on a great show. They just have one album out and I'd recommend a listen on spotify. Their sound seems to synthesise that mysterious early 80s sound (Seventeen Seconds type stuff) into an otherwise 90s-rooted aesthetic.

Other than that I'm seeking energy from the proto- and post- punk eras to propel me through the dourness of winter and these mediocre times. Eclectic bundle of artists on regular rotation include The Jam, Squeeze, the Stooges, Wipers, Wire, Celtic Frost, R.E.M. and the Cro-Mags.

I find Adele's music generally of little interest to me but I applaud her insistence on respect for the full length album on streaming platforms. I hope this somehow helps that medium continue to exist in the wider public consciousness.

It was for Myles Kennedy's new album The Ides Of March. Pre-ordered it off his website for like $20 total.

Also, it's cool that more people are starting to post in this thread now. Hope it keeps up like this.

Currently listening to Dean Martin music. Man, what a good singer! Prior to that, I was listening to killer MP3s of songs from Dead in the Desert, Battle of the Brains, and Atroxian Realm. Like Soul Monster, it's great to see more people post here!

Back in October 2015, Buckethead released 1 album a day for a month counting down to Halloween, and they're a collection of dark, ambient albums that would sound perfect in a haunted house. To be honest, I think they get kind of generic at times, and there's some that I have a really hard time sitting through, but there's still some gems in them, and it's like having an advent calendar for Halloween.

EDIT: I've been listening to some of these while reading H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe stories or working on Halloween artwork, and they actually work well to enhance the atmosphere.
I'm a huge fan of Buckethead's music and that series really does stand out for its atmosphere.
Glad to see there are more people that can appreciate it!

I'm currently listening to Песни смерти by Путь (Pesni Smerti by Put, translated "Death songs by Path").
If atmospheric Russian black metal is your thing I can really recommend this one to you ;)

If you're into Russian metal, have you ever heard a band named Dehydrated?
