    Hello, I don’t get much time to find new good bands, perhaps some folk here can turn me onto new good stuff. The stuff I love and formed my basis for listening to music is:
    Dinosaur jr.
    Swervedriver

    Those are the big 2, other influences are:
    Sonic Youth
    My Bloody Valentine
    The Swirlies

    The only new stuff I’ve heard that I like is:
    Autolux
    Broken Social Scene
    Interpol
    a few Doves tunes

    Is there anything new that has that classic Dj wall of guitar sound or the fuel injected swervines of Swervedriver?

    There`s not much going on these days so go back to the late `80s and early `90s and you`ll find some good stuff like…

    St Johnny-think Dino meets Pavement.Try to find their Speed Is Dreaming album

    Eleventh Dream Day-think along the lines of Neil Young/Television/X/Velvet Underground.Lots of guitar solos and off kilter male/female harmonies.Try to find their Lived To tell and El Moodio albums for starters.

    Bailter Space-like MBV and Swervedriver with some Jesus And Mary Chain thrown in.Try to find their Robot World album.

    Seam-understated vocals and awesome guitar sounds.Try to find their The Problem With Me album.

    Thanx, but why do you suppose nothing is going on these days as far as that type of music is concerned? I figured there would be someone, somewhere?

    I don`t know,I don`t seem to hear stuff that gets me goin like in the old days.Maybe it`s just old age :D Back in `93 I could go in a record store and see tons of stuff I wanted to buy;nowadays it`s not like that at all.
