I'm on MB too, like a couple other recently joined members, and from looking around I think I have a bit of a sense of this place. I listen to a decent amount of music, and I like to think I have pretty broad-ranging taste. Some favorite artists: Spiritualized, Sleater-Kinney, John Coltrane, Built to Spill, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Built to Spill, Destroyer, David Bowie, Big Star, Can, Charles Mingus, the Band, Drive-By Truckers, Elvis Costello, Fucked Up, Galaxie 500, the Fall, Gram Parsons, Gene Clark, the Hold Steady, Low, Kanye West, Los Campesinos!, the Microphones/Mount Eerie, Nick Cave, Modest Mouse, Mission of Burma, Radiohead, the Replacements, Run the Jewels, Refused, the Pogues, Swans, Bjork, Belle and Sebastian, Public Enemy, Stars of the Lid, Teenage Fanclub, Tindersticks, Earth, Big Black, Talking Heads, Tom Waits, the Body, Titus Andronicus, LCD Soundsystem, Townes Van Zandt, Wire, X, XTC, Whiskeytown, the Walkmen, and Yo La Tengo.
... That went on for a really long time, sorry.
