    adding some new tunes to my cd collection

    as a martian who just landed on earth, i am on the prowl for interesting examples of earth music. what would you recommend to an alien looking to expand his musically horizons? sci-fi themes, anthems are out.

    Either of the Ali Farka Toure & Toumani Diabate albums.

    Martin Simpson and Wu Man - Music for the Motherless Child.

    Rainer - Nocturnes.

    Anything by Bill Frisell, but Ghost Town and Blues Dream are my favourites.

    Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.

    Warren Zevon - Life'll Kill Ya.

    Yo La Tengo - I am not afraid of you and will beat your ass.

    Richard Thompson - Live from Austin, Tx.

    Neu! - 75.

    Nils Petter Molvaer - Khmer.

    Nguyen Le - Purple.

    The Necks - Hanging Garden or Chemist.

    That's a varied bunch and should expand a horizon or 2.

    Try these, some of which have been recommended before i see:















    If you only get one, make sure its Spirit of Eden by Talk Talk. Fifth one down is "In the wake of Poseidon" by King Crimson
    I want to share something with you: The three little sentences that will get you through life. Number 1: Cover for me. Number 2: Oh, good idea, Boss! Number 3: It was like that when I got here.

    I recommend almost everything I have, but for an alien, probably modern naff digi-pop would be representative of our musical culture.
