  1. Playlists

    As much as I still buy a lot of music in physical format, mainly vinyl, I do find subscribing to streaming service useful. I use Spotify, mainly for being out and about and in the car. A long time ago we used to have this big collaborative VT playlist which people added to but that was a bit messy and a lot of skipping was required. I do however like creating playlists (must be my inner DJ coming out). It's also fairly easy to share playlists, so why not have a topic where you can share your playlists. You'll obviously have to say which streaming service the playlist is for, it will also have to be made public. Give a brief description of what the playlist is and provide a link
  2. Your Fantasy 5 Piece

    You have 5 categories: 1. Lead Vocalist 2. Rhythm Guitar 3. Lead Guitar 4. Bass 5. Drums Name your optimum all time band, and you must consider how they would sound if they actually played together. Pick from any music genre.
  3. Desert Island VillaTalk

    Ok, bit of fun... You are going to live on a remote island for a year for some reason. Let's say for an experiment in isolation. No internet or contact with the outside world. There is power, and running water and regular food/provisions delivered so you won't starve or start smelling like a dead badger. However, entertainment is hard to come by. So to combat boredom, you can take the following to keep you sane... 3x albums 3x books 3x films 1x tv boxset 1x extra entertainment object (could be a guitar, or a mountain bike, or a football, or a surfboard). Basically, something to pass the time. So, what would be on your list?
  4. What's your earworm?

    I don't recall having a thread like this before but I'm daily plagued by the most annoying songs getting stuck in my head so I thought it might be helpful for us to share what we're currently humming in the hopes that someone else's song is less annoying and might replace it. (Alternatively of course, you might end up with a really skull-crushingly annoying song planted in your head as a result of this thread but them's the breaks.) This morning - for no apparent reason, I have this on repeat on my noggin':
  5. Top 10 Albums 2016

    Righty ho, as it's now December and the year is drawing to a close I thought it was time for the annual album list.

  6. Post your preferred format in here. I haven't got one at the moment, bit of a dilemma.
  7. The 90s revival night

    1990 1991 1992. E's are good, E's are good, these 'effin E's are good. I wonder what he means? 1993 1994
  8. 80s Party!

    Inspired by the 80s music challenge thing that's going about Facebook at the moment, let's have an 80s party! Post your favourite 80s tunes, and let's dance! Only one rule, songs must have been originally released between 01/01/1980 & 31/12/1989. Other than that, have at it! Lets kick things off...
  9. Eurovision Song Contest 2016

    BBC1 @ 8pm this Saturday LIVE from the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden. The semi finals were held Tuesday and Thursday night, with the running order draw made early this morning. It is as follows; Belgium Czech Republic The Netherlands Azerbaijan Hungary Italy Israel Bulgaria Sweden Germany France Poland Australia Cyprus Serbia Lithuania Croatia Russia Spain Latvia Ukraine Malta Georgia Austria United Kingdom Armenia Ukraine are being tipped for success with their politically tinged track 1944 sung by Jamala, herself from Crimea. They didn't take part last year due to financial reasons and the on going conflict in Ukraine. The song concerns itself with deportation of the Crimean Tatars in the '40s by Stalin, and the chorus is sung in the Crimean Tatar language. It was accussed of being policitally loaded, which would have made it ineligible for the competition, but the EBU have confirmed it can take part as there is no 'political speech' in the lyrics. Instead, the song is inspired by stories that Jamala was told by her Grandmother, basically. What allegory is intentional is for the viewer to decide...
  10. New Music 2016

    their latest is pretty decent too Blandy Tried this last night. Very cool, found myself drifting off to sleep (compliment btw) listening to it.
  11. Albums of the Year 2015

    We're nearly at the end of the year, now. As we normally do a "what have been your favourite albums" thread, it seemed rude not to make this one. Reluctant as I am to spout off on the internet (cough), here's a few that pop in to my head. I think it's been a better year than last, though I've perhaps bought less new music (and more older stuff that I've discovered or re-discovered). In no particular order then, here's my 10. a. The Lucid Dream - The Lucid dream Post rock from Carlisle I think. Nicely builds. b. The Fall - Sub-Lingual Tablet. This is a good, good album. c. Floating Points - Elaenia Instrumental d. Low - Ones and Sixes Hip Hop producer. Slowcore band. Strange mix that works. e. Torres - Sprinter Canadian, I think f. OOFJ - Acute Feast Scandi -Electronica g. Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm - Collaborative Works. Chill. h. Sexwitch - Sexwitch Mental but in a good way i. Deerhunter - Fading Frontier j. Courtney Barnett - Sometimes I Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit She's just great with lyrics.
  12. link I'll start with Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"... Actual lyric: "Take what you have gathered from coincidence" I thought it was: "Take what you have gathered from cold wind so dense"
  13. Summer Jamz 2015

    What are you listening to with the windows rolled down and volume turned up?
  14. I'm not ashamed to say I like Dire Straits, although I know that admission opens me up to heaps of ridicule, especially amongst Brits. That said, I heard "Sultans of Swing" on the radio today, and I almost wanted to drive my car into a utility pole. That would make my list, possibly. What songs make you homicidal/suicidal?
  15. New Music 2015

    Over half way through January and no one has started a new music topic yet, shame on you! My new years resolution as such was to buy at least one vinyl album a week, it needn't be a new release it could even be second hand but I would hope a lot of it is new. So far I've bought three albums but only one new release which is... The Advisory Circle - From Out Here Clips available here
  16. Mixtapes 2014

    Done a CD mix of stuff picked up in 2014 and a separate classical selection for another website. Sending a couple out to VTers anyway, and already sorted a swap for something that I'm after, so why not throw it open? If you've got something you'd like to share, post it, see if you get any takers? Chrisp, I got a smashing CD from a Welsh collector of, er, Welsh stuff. Will run you a copy.
  17. Albums of the Year 2014

    OK guys and gals, I'm tired of waiting for someone to start this thread. Let's have them... Gonna have a think about mine, when I go do my big shop in a bit,
  18. Top 10 Albums

    We have a top 10 films and artists thread, so I thought it'd be interesting to list our top 10 albums(or however many you can manage; it's bloody difficult). I think that it's quite interesting how our top albums might be from different artists to those in our top 10. In a random order: Aja - Steely Dan Close to the Edge - Yes Thriller or Off the Wall - Michael Jackson Morning View - Incubus Lateralus - Tool Deloused in the Comatorium - The Mars Volta The Nightfly - Donald Fagen Total Life Forever - Foals Crack the Skye - Mastodon Undecided on which Porcupine Tree album to put here. (apologies if this thread has already existed)
  19. So we have the top 10 films of all time. I am wondering who your favourite bands/singers of all time are? If you are like me this changes regularly, so it'll probably have a few changes this time next month! I'm not putting this in order yet. Paul Simon The Clash Marvin Gaye Jackie Wilson John Legend Buddy Holly The Smiths Bob Marley Goo Goo Dolls Dusty Springfield Over t'you.

  21. New Music 2014

    Anyone getting the feeling might have a good 2014?
  22. Albums of the Year 2013

    We're well into December now so its that time of the year, the time when we look back on our favourite music of the year. Must say its been a great year for me, my list of albums will be posted later but please no top 10's, a list is as long as it needs to be.
  23. My Dad: Classic Rock, Blues, Soul, Jazz, Classical My Mum: Some Classic Rock (The softer stuff), Classical It's amazing how much classical music I recognize but have no idea who the composer is. The stuff I preferred as a kid were my Dad's records, like Jimi Hendrix, Stones, Aretha Franklin, Beatles. The classical was just too boring and grandiose, and I still think much of it is, but there is some fantastic classical music, no doubt.
