    Simpson is worthy.

    Both Knoffler and Hiatt have albums less than 3 years old and will probably release another this year.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    Yeah but most of what we're getting is carpy music from old guys trying to pretend they're still the college guys that think they're cool guys because they'll listen to almost anything as long as almost nobody else has ever heard of it.

    Crusty old farts are people too.

    beasties are great.

    if you don't like an artist, vote it down and skip it.

    it takes effort to find new artists and new music. pandora is one outlet.

    type in "calypso" into pandora. or "bill callahan." the beasties will not come up.

    What he said....

    Yeah, guys like Mark Knopfler have been making more-or-less the same music for nearly 40 years. Yeah, I sorta liked him.......in 1982.

    But, it kind of sounded like from your original request that you were looking for newer bands that sound like a particular style of music that you liked from some of your old favorite bands. That's not the same thing as looking for new and original stuff.

    Perhaps you'd like these guys?

    I'll have to check out Darryll Scott.

    McMurtry seems to be one of the few artists that likes playing in Idaho/Montana so I've seen him a few times without having to go too far.

    I like Sturgill too. He has a great interview on the WTF podcast that's worth listening to.

    I wasn't actually thinking of that stuff. I was thinking more about the 5 minutes of noise that sounds like it might be a song intro that got stuck in a loop and never actually resolved into being a song stuff.

    OP, given your interests in Bowie/Eno, and the fact that you took a chance and spent money to see the recent King Crimson tour, I would suggest checking out:
    - The Pineapple Thief
    - District 97
    - Mute Gods

    much of the time they are singing Vonlenska which isn't any language at all. So even they don't know what they are saying

    For indoor riding I'm trying different Amazon stations. Lately it's been Gorillaz. Beck is a good one as well.

    Check out college radio

    College radio is new, fresh, and interesting. The music is experimental and noncommercial. The young people who play do it for the love of music. You can often stream it online. My favorite is KFJC FM 89.7, Foothill Junior College, SF Bay Area.

    Back in the late 70's/early 80's I was way too much of a Police fan, to give any thought to music from earlier in the 70's apart from Bowie and Iggy.

    Never thought about early Yes, KC, Genesis, Pink Floyd. But man, years later when I did, their stuff blew my mind.

    I just find it really hard, trying to find new artists who I like.

    Scott Walker isn't new. He's been around for decades, but I'd suggest the OP listen to his stuff. Its different, but some of it in my mind is fantastic.

    Great advice. I've heard lots of great music on my local college station, 91.9 KGLT Montana State - go Bobcats (or, at least, thanks for limiting the number of felons you've been recruiting).

    There are 2 college radio stations near me (and a 2 more independent station non-commercial stations as well) that I sometimes listen to. One station is basic NPR in the morning, folk/classic rock during the mid-day, and 'college radio' in the evening, with many oddball shows (like classic disco, etc.). the next college station is pre-programmed "top 100 indie" most of the day, then an even odder mix of student shows, like an entire 2 hours of zydeco (??!!), heavy metal, etc. One independent station has 1 hour slots with zero continuity, so during one hour, they may be playing the Velvet Underground, the next hour is classic R&B, and the next hour a call-in discussion about the mayor.

    To summarize, college radio ain't what it used to be....

    I've been listening to this a lot lately (YouTube playlist).

    This picks up at the end of Season 2. Give it a minute.
