There is almost never a mood that doesn't have its music.  I listen to music to sustain my mood.  I listen to music to alter my mood. I listen to music a lot. And my listening tastes vary a lot.

The exploration of music, to me, is part of the experience.  Two sites that I love for this exploration are:

Oh!  What about the bands I've been in?  Though eclectic in some ways, they have been regular old rock bands.  I've moved all that here.

Recent Hits

Below are some bands that I'm into at the moment.  They are either new favorites or old stuff I can't put down right now.  Some babbling from my mind for added context.  

Currently Trending

In Rio's life that is.  :-P   This is stuff that is on my playlists right now.  Basically, just getting to know them or they've recently resurfaced.  The more recent are on top.

Next On The List

I used to keep a separate list.  But now all the stuff I've heard about that I want to check out is on this spreadsheet.

So Last Year

Okay, definitely just a joke.  Here are some bands that are on the current playlists, but not brand new (to me).  It's more that I don't want them falling off the "notice me" list.  I might babble a bit about them too.

Old Stand-bys

What, favorites aren't first?  I guess that means the journey is as important as the destination.  And ranks only work for what to listen to next, not how much I like a band.  And there are a ton of others that I listen to as well.   

{More blabbing to be added as I have time.}
