Music ask meme

Via--you guessed it--zmediaoutlet. Since Tumblr, for all its faults, seems to be better at coming up with ask memes, and Z is my window into Tumblr, these days.

Do I know them already?: No
First song Youtube took me to:

First Impression: Some nice forward motion to the song, decent balance between percussion and the vocals/instrumentals. I like the synth (I think?) layered over the chorus.
Do I like it?: Yeah--wouldn't have minded at all if the song had continued on a bit more.
Would I listen to more from them?: Sure! Don't know that I'd go out and buy the album based on this, but I'd be happy if they popped up in one of my Pandora channels.
Rate (from what I heard): A solid 6.5. Good background music for when you're trying to get a project done or clean or something.
[off-LJ suggestion:] NRBQ

Do I know them already?: Nope
First song youtube took me to: (cheating a little, since this song in particular was supplied to me as a representative song)

First Impression: A) Nice groove, B) Dean Winchester would totally agree with the sentiment of this song
Do I like it?: Yeah, definitely
Would I listen to more from them?: If it's like this, sure.
Rate (from what I heard): 7.5. Good music for when you just need to groove out for a little while

[off-LJ suggestion:] Jay Brannan

Do I know them already?: Nope
First song youtube took me to: (again, was given this song specifically)

First Impression: Hm--musically, it's pretty basic; not really anything there to grab me, but it's inoffensive enough
Do I like it?: Sort of? I don't actively dislike it, at least
Would I listen to more from them?: If it popped up in a channel I was listening to, I'd probably just go ahead and keep listening, but don't think I'd go looking for more
Rate (from what I heard): 6--this sort of basic, pop-y music tends to get on my nerves after a little while, but it's fine enough as a stand-alone.
Don't know your tastes but here's a couple of guitar-y folk-y people producing within the last decade or so!

Kurt Vile

Mirel Wagner

(if you're up for something a bit more psychedelic: Goat; ETA: It occurs to me that "Goat" may not produce useful youtube results.....heh. Try Gathering of Ancient Tribes as a representative track?)

Kurt Vile

Do I know them already?: Nope
First song youtube took me to:

First Impression: Okay, this is not what I was expecting from the kind of eerie opening. Has a nice bit of grit to it; bouncy, but not bright, which is a combo you don't see as much.
Do I like it?: Yeah, I kind of do
Would I listen to more from them?: Probably?
Rate (from what I heard): 7.5

The Record Company

Do I know them already?: No
First song youtube took me to:

First Impression: I like the opening bass--I'm kind of bracing myself for screaming at some point, but so far it's fun
Do I like it?: Yeah, now that I'm all the way through, I think so
Would I listen to more from them?: If it's like this? Yeah
Rate (from what I heard): 8
Beta Radio

Do I know them already?: Nope
First song youtube took me to:

First Impression: Man, for some reason this makes me think of college
Do I like it?: Sure? It seems pretty innocuous
Would I listen to more from them?: Yeah, though probably just as channel-filler
Rate (from what I heard): 6 (not because they're bad, just ... nothing about the song grabbed me)
The Duhks

Do I know them already?: No
First song youtube took me to:

First impression: Ooh, I like the touch of violin. Also, it's nice to finally have some vocal harmonization.
Do I like it?: Yeah, definitely--it's a nice combo of instruments, and they mesh well with the vocalists
Would I listen to more from them?: Another "yeah, definitely". Reminds me a lot of eastmountainsouth, and I have that album memorized
Rate (from what I heard): 9
Do I know them already?: I know OF them, at least! Which is a first, so far.
First song youtube took me to: I did not doctor this, I swear

First Impression: Hey, I know this one! ;D But seriously, the vocals are more delicate that I'd expect from the instrumental intro
Do I like it?: Yeah--not a genre I'm drawn to simply on its own, but this is a fun song to groove to for a bit
Would I listen to more from them?: Yeah, if it was part of a mix or something--an entire album would probably grow a bit wearying
Rate (from what I heard): 7
Do I know them?: Nope
First song YouTube took me to:

First Impression: Feels very retro--would fit into my mental "80's pop music" box
Do I like it?: Sure? Doesn't have any of the things that makes music automatically annoying for me
Would I listen to more from them?: I guess? It's not really a genre I seek out, but I wouldn't change the channel if it was on the radio or anything. And to be fair, it would probably fit in pretty well with some of my cleaning playlists
Rate (from what I heard): 6.5
