I'm a huge indie hip hop doucher. In the past I was able to keep up with it, but I haven't been following much current music...I mainly stick to older stuff like MF Doom, Eyedea & Abilities, Atmosphere, Cannibal Ox, Aesop Rock, El-P, Hieroglyphics, etc... Pretty much any old Rhymesayers or Def Jux stuff is in my collection. The Lucy Ford LP by Atmosphere is probably the soundtrack to my life and First Born by Eyedea & Abilities is still mind-blowing.
The Head and the Heart, Fiona Apple, Wilco, Amy Winehouse, Garbage, Frightened Rabbit, The Avett Brothers and Everclear are great. I'm also a sucker for 90's pop shit, as well as old Blink-182 and Brand New, but don't tell anyone.
...is that too literal?
