So, hey, yeah, it's been awhile.
My husband staged an intervention (thankfully without all the solemn looking people in my living room), and I'm actually staying home this weekend.
I've checked out several of the artists that people suggested.
Abney Park - interesting sound, almost... indian?, which I wasn't expecting from their name. I currently have Stigmata Martyr and The Root of All Evil on my Highlights playlist, and I'll need to check out some more of their stuff.
Alphaville - Hello, old friend. I grabbed Sounds Like a Melody, The Mysteries of Love, Summer Rain, and Forever Young. Forever Young I'd definitely heard before, and it made me smile.
Bad Religion - I tried some of their more recent stuff and wasn't hooked, but I've since gotten some suggestions on specific songs, so we'll see how that turns out.
Massive Attack - Actually passed on from my husband; their song Teardrop is the song from which the opening to House was edited. I was NOT expecting the singer to be a woman, and it kind of caught me off guard. I'll need to listen to it a couple more times to decide whether I don't like it, or whether it's just that it wasn't what I was expecting.
MC Frontalot - Goth Girls made me smile, but I don't think it'll stay on my rotation. I need to try some other songs.
Nightwish - ...sold. I've disliked ONE of the songs I've listened to out of about 6.
Red Hot Chili Peppers - I do like Dani California, and I think Stadium Arcadium is going to stick around for awhile if not longer.
I've listened to a lot of the other artists, but none of them made quite as strong an impression on me as these. I'll need to give them another playthrough with some more attention.
Other new artists on my playlist?
3 Doors Down
They Might Be Giants
...and I think Tiamat is going away now.
