Helloween - Perfect Gentleman. Crap recording, but it's late. I get the lower quality (ie, played more quietly) recordings out of the way during the times when I'd get in trouble blasting things.

Earlier I enjoyed a few Mark Knopfler recordings, which I forgot I even had. Dug them out since so many people mentioned his band's awesome sound quality. He must be an audiophile.

Joe Satriani - Engines of Creation SACD. Still waiting to find a decently priced Strange Beautiful Music SACD!

Suddenly I have an urge to listen to Scenes From a Memory.

Wonder where that came from...

Bought and listened to blu-ray of Diana Krall Live at Rio last night. A good, but laid back recording of hers.

Hi CV,

I am new here and chanced upon this thread a couple of days back. Your like of Lykke Li's Youth Novels caught my eye as I love it too, and so I perused some of your other posts.

Thanks to you I have discovered Hello Saferide/Säkert!/Annika Norlin (what's with these Swedish female singers?) and I think I like Marina and the Diamonds too.

If you have more tips for similar music please let me know.

If you have not tried it yet, take Tanita Tikaram's Ancient Heart for a spin.

-- Henry

Thanks for the tip. I'll check her out!

I'm not sure about the music being similar, but another Swedish band I've liked is jj. Pleasant, mellow, yet still hooks me. Maia Hirasawa, who was part of Hello Saferide, has done some cool solo stuff. I would recommend her first album over her second one, but I liked both. I always have to mention Regina Spektor, even though she really doesn't need the extra promotion anymore. Au Revoir Simone is cool. Cœur de pirate, too, if you can handle listening to singing strictly in French. Those Dancing Days is another Swedish band I like. Anyway, hopefully one of those works for you.

Sky Larkin - Kaleide

You can listen to the whole album right now on the band's website. I'd say I like it better than their first album, but I still can't quite get into it. Maybe after more listens, but I don't know if that will happen.
