This week we’re looking at the music our developers are listening to, which is fun for me, because it gives me new bands to research. Given I rarely listen to the radio anymore (outside of Pandora), I’ll be sure to read up on some of the artists mentioned (looking up Ratatat as we speak). Oddly enough, most of my music purchases these days are based on reading about a band — not listening to them..
Speaking of bands I’ve read about, I had heard good things about The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. I took a chance on it, and ended up really liking it. If you’re a fan of The Stone Roses, you might like it too.
Here’s what everyone else is rocking out to…
Nathan X, Associate Producer: Red Fang, Kyuss, Mastodon, Knights of the Abyss, Within the Ruins, Darkest Hour, The Hives, Spinnerette, Koffin Kats, Black Star, The Who, The Subways, The Go! Team, and Bad Brains.
Marisa Lyon, QA Tester: Eels, Gogol Bordello, The Indelicates, and the new Decemberists album.
Cory Dornbusch, QA: Carbon Leaf, Neal Mccoy, Brooks and Dunn, Hollywood Undead, Tool, A Perfect Circle… I don’t know I hit random.
