13376 Nati Dreddd
Anyone familiar with this lass? Nati Dreddd is an up and coming singer/songwriter from Scotland who sings contemporary Folk tunes that aren't too far removed from the tradition.

She recently made a stop in New Hampshire and is on tour promoting her new tunes:

Not really.

So what's the deal? Are you her manager? Are you shagging her? Are you family? Little bit of all three?

I never heard of Nati until she came to America earlier this month; instantly loved her performances and went to quite a few of her sets. I live an ocean away and have no blood relation to her. I don't use TikTok, so any knowledge of her presence there was completely unknown to me. This type of singer/songwriter Folk music is outside my area or familiarity as my preferences generally include heavier music. Not that I dislike it, but Celtic Rock and Celtic Metal are more my thing.

I am just an overly enthusiastic fan sharing an artist I hope others can share in my fandom with me. Again, the previous artists you mentioned are outside my area of familiarity, so I approached her as if this music had never been performed before. Obviously, it's not new in terms of genre, but still thrilling for me.

Why do you feel her music is weak? What sort of music do you feel delivers? What song would you compare Dreddd's music to?

Genuinely curious.

I'm not really versed in the Scottish tradition, but we have some remarkable performers working in the English tradition - just to name women, we've got Eliza Carthy, Rachel and Becky Unthank, Kate Rusby, Maddy Prior, Kathryn Tickell, Bella Hardy, Fay Hield and of course the legendary June Tabor.

Ásgeir Trausti - Heimförin (Icelandic folk music)


Kaizers Orchestra - Knekker Deg Til Sist (Norwegian alt-rock)


Chetes - Camino a Casa (apparently this counts as pop rock in Mexico)


I guess songs in English by non-native speaking artists are fine too.

I remember this from my foreign upbringing. I remember this song came out around the same time and I really liked it, although listening to it now, maybe it's not as good as I remember:

Femme Like U is by far one of the best R&B songs of that entire decade, and yet, it's virtually unknown outside the Francosphere. I remember being in France some time around 2005 one time and they were playing it up and down there.

I always lump Possession in with the works of Christian rock singer Plumb, because they both had dance remixes that came out around the same time (2001-ish) which I really loved. And they blended in perfectly with all the other vocal trance of the time, even though in both cases, they're pounding remixes of incredibly inappropriate songs. Possession took its lyrics from love letters written to Sarah McLachlan by a deranged stalker (he sued her when he found out she'd plagiarised his words, then killed himself when it transpired she wouldn't actually be at the trial), and Plumb's Damaged is all about child molestation.

Let's party!

Travis Meeks just finished successfuly raising $6000 to buy back the gear he sold for crack.

Could this be grunge's greatest redemption story or is he scamming people for drug money? It really is a shame that the 'tism and drug abuse did him in. Days of the New had some brilliant songs.

8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.


Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

So much modern music now is exactly this. There have always been songs which ripped off older songs, but there is a noticeable trend of current DJs just writing a few new words for a song everyone already knows, and changing the title so nobody will find the original when you look the song up on YouTube. Someone, I think Charli XCX, did it for Alors On Danse by Stromae a few months ago, and that song is only a few years old. There must still be new music being written, but the radio stations have seemingly completely given up on finding it.

I can't say much more for Bengas Chapter II - the most I've heard will be listenable after familiarity, unlike Diary of an Afro Warrior which carried itself throughout - but this one track is insane.

12736 music appreciation
When you discover great new music that you really enjoy, do you listen to it constantly or do you try to listen to it sparingly over a long period so you don't grow tired of it?

I never gave much thought to music listening strategies, but around this time last year I discovered Khruangbin and I spent so much time listening to them from March to September that I kind of immunised my brain from enjoying the music. I'm thinking I should change my ways and spread out my listening so I can savour music for longer; maybe listen to a new album with each new day of the week instead of listening to the same album every day.

On a somewhat related note, how do people enjoy streaming services? I tried spotify but I found myself getting really annoyed at how many crap tracks I had to skip. Is this normal or should I learn to be more open and less finicky when it comes to music?

I heard about Yma Sumac recently. She was a Peruvian opera singer with an amazing vocal range, so I looked up her singing on YouTube, and I found this which is pretty much the maddest shit I have ever heard.

Failing that, I like Laurie Anderson, but you might well know all about Laurie Anderson if you listen to mental shit exclusively.

13014 Ancient Greek and Roman themed
I'm looking for music influenced by ancient Greek and Roman themes. I like the more subtle pieces and background music, but most things I've found floating around on YouTube become a bit too "cinematic" or have very hammy crescendos and sound effects.

The following are quite nice:

I did listen to a bit of this. Then thought it reminded me of the Talos Principle sound track. And then I thought I should replay it. But then I saw I had bought the VR version which I've never played. Then I thought I should set up my VR for the first time in a year or so. But I haven't yet.

I'm intrigued by the Spielberg remake, because of the visuals. But I seriously doubt anything can match the energy of this. I'm not really a musical person, but West Side Story is the absolute best, and America is the best song. I actually sing it to myself every time I visit there.

I hate musicals, but I found out that two of the old guys from Twin Peaks were in West Side Story together, and that struck me as so utterly ludicrous that I watched it purely to see them in it. I'm a big fan of Twin Peaks; the thrill might not be the same if you are not.

Yeah, heavily considered it. My dad's got a list of all the books he's read and some review notes on each, which is pretty daunting considering he has more library space than I have walls.

You should deffo have a spreadsheet of basic life stuff, like previous addresses/dates, and potentially a budget and maybe stock responses to interview questions, but yeah an itinerary is the next step.
