To really hear an artist's work, you must look past the hit singles. The entire album is worth hearing to truly get a glimpse of it all in one body of work. Here are some of the albums I am listening to this week.
OFF! - OFF! (2012)
King Kong Brigade:
Red Hot Chili Peppers - I'm With You (2011)
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are another great band from Los Angeles who have been doing music since the early 80s with lead vocalist Anthony Keidis and bassist Flea being the only original members. John Frusciante was their main guitarist throughout most of their recent albums but left the band prior to this album. He was replaced by Josh Klinghoffer on this album. This album has some really great songs including Monarchy of Roses, Rain Dance Maggie has a pretty funky beat and includes some cowbell for good measure. I especially like the song Look Around, very catchy and while this might not be their best album, it's consistent and gets better with every listen.Here are some of my favorite tracks:
Black Flag - Everything Went Black (1982)
Clocked In (w/Ron Reyes)
Silversun Pickups - Neck of The Woods (2012)
