Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers and David Guetta. There is only so many times you can listen to the Tron Legacy soundtrack on repeat. Don't get me wrong I love that album and Daft Punk in general but I need something new.
So like anyone else I took the question to twitter to see what my coder friends are listening to:
Julio Cesar suggested The Beatles which is a great but not exactly unique suggestion. I have about 64 of my favourite Beatles songs on my system. However, it doesn't really fit the bill as I'm looking for music without distracting lyrics.
Fil Maj suggested Baby Mammoth which I started listening to on YouTube and then moved over to GrooveShark where I've been listening to them quite a bit as it exactly fits the bill of what I wanted. Thanks Fil!
Adem Hamidovic suggested the Dredd Original Film Soundtrack soundtrack which is currently posted up on YouTube but I'm sure it'll get a takedown notice soon. I'm going to give it a listen this morning to see if it is worth the purchase.
William Prey suggested Sweet Mother Logic again on GrooveShark. I did a quick listen to some of their songs and it sounds just great. I love how it is completely instrumental but not electronic. Great change of pace from some of the other stuff I've been listening too.
Finally, Revolunet suggested using the music service 8tracks. You pick what music you want to listen to by selecting genre tags. It seems like an interesting way to discover new music.
So, what do you listen to while you are coding? Leave a comment to tell me about it.
