    I'm looking for new music to listen to so anyone have suggestions? I'm up for anything with a good beat. What are your favorite musicians/musical groups?

    How about trying something different and listening to some electronic/easy listening music? Craig Chaquico, Davol, Ryan Farish, Audiologic, and 7and5 are some of my favorite artists in that genre.

    The new St. Vincent album is good. It's weird, but, well, so am I!

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, keep them coming.

    I like acoustics, they can really bring a song out.

    Here are some of the songs hubby and I recently bought...

    Half-truism by Offspring
    Sound of Madness by Shinedown
    Second Chance by Shinedown
    Champagne by Cavo
    37 Stiches by Drowning Pool
    Indestructible by Disturbed

    If you REALLY want something different, I also have an extensive collection of middle eastern music (I take belly dance classes). Good artists to look for are Vas, Rachid Taha, Chalf Hassan, and Galactic Caravan.

    Here is a student troop dancing to one of the Galactic Caravan songs (ignore the dancing...they appear to be real rookies, but they are trying...LOL)
