What is your favorite music/band/artist?

Ive been a member for over 5 years now. One thread I can't remember seeing posted was asking who our favorite artists are. We are a super creative bunch and Im sure our tastes in creativity reflect it.

Please name, link or describe the artist that is your favorite. Please don't limit it to one kind. Name your favorite visual artist, video maker, sculptor, musician, lyricist... song writer.

Ill give you an example:

Visual: Glenn Barr. Younger guy from Detroit. His art has a Detroit feel. Dark and menacing but still playful and fun. http://glbarr.com/

Music: Brother Ali. An albino hip hop MC from Milwaukee. He wrote the most powerful anti-government song Ive ever heard. This is his video 'Uncle Same Goddamn' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OO18F4aKGzQ

Do one, two.. three.. lets just share some of our favorite artists!! Im curious and excited to see what the DP community likes.

I can't pick just one

I have a favorite in each genre. If someone twisted my arm, I guess I would go with Agalloch:


"All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind." - Khalil Gibran
"The Perfect Man has no self; the Holy Man has no merit; the Sage has no fame." - Chuang Tzu


It has been too many years since we were able to do so, but when we get together we get a little drunk, get out the guitars and play a little out of tune and sing in really bad harmony.
My all time favorite musician you have heard of is Beethoven.
The best concert I ever attended was Harry Chapin. He is a story teller, he just uses a guitar for a prop, and I love the way he weaves a tale. Here's a few of my favorites of his:
My husband sings this to me and makes me cry :)




Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

TOOL - Lateralus

A song written using the Fibonacci Sequence. I have seen them live many times and they never dissapoint.

Truth is treason in an empire of lies

Too Many...Can't Decide..

Jack Starr (not the metal guitarist guy): "Born Petrified" LP
18 rabid frothers from the late, great Texas brainiac + a coupla his bizarre radio ads all gut stitched into one frantic footlong! Truly "out there" stuff w/raw 50's side & a flip full of savage 60's garage (I mean bathroom) toons! Jack White covered his "Pain (Gimme Sympathy)" with The Upholsterers. His daughter fronts the punk/ska band The Beat Dolls!


Doug Sahm (SDQ)...Tex-Mex at its best!


Also, early Gram Parsons (w/ the Shilohs)...Liberty-infused lyrical folk tuneage!
