My music tastes are so broad in scope, it's hard to put my finger on any one thing. I like classics like The Beatles and James Taylor, and more recent bands like U2 and Radiohead. Mainstream modern rock generally sucks, I think; thus, I listen to more "indie" modern rock... by "indie" I don't necessarily mean "weird" (a la Andrew Bird, whom I don't mind, or Sufjan Stevens, who tends to annoy me with his over the top repetitious music), but simply "non-mainstream" (think: Beirut, Devotchka, The Veils, Arctic Monkeys...). I also dig funky music like the NYC based bands Balkan Beat Box, Gogol Bordello, and Budos Band. Also, I'm into some rap and hip-hop, but generally only those who can actually be dubbed as a 'band', such as Gnarls Barkley or the classic The Roots.... oh, and Lauryn Hill rocks my socks off!
