As pop goes I'm more of a Justin Timberlake, Divine Comedy, kinda guy here. I play an Alanis Morissette song in our set. It drives me nuts!!!
I have a big listening habit where I like a unified experience. Which is why I like whole albums, and I also want stuff to segue into each other. It's a really compulsive thing, I don't like throwing on bebop Miles after playing Bitches Brew. But I might throw on Blue Moods, which is a kind of dark and moody record from that bebop time period, and go from there to a more bebop thing, if I have the time.
That's a big part of listening for me. What I've just listened to determines where I go.
My teacher at school told me to listen to Homewrecker. Listened to it and I was blown away instantly! They are pretty heavy and the drummer barely ever uses double bass which is really impressive and he's also amazing! But they can put on a show!
Mapex, Sabian, Vic Firth.
