Follow-up: How did you discover it?
Sales | Salinas
A: Porcupine Tree. I’m into a lot of acid rock and these guys are like a hard-edged Pink Floyd.
Industry Insider: The owner of a music store recommended it.
Clerk | Salinas
A: Maroon 5. The first song I heard was “Hard to Breathe” and it struck me as very unique. The singer has a very distinct voice.
Old Fashioned Way: The radio.
DLI Student | Monterey
A: I just started listening to The Sparks. They started in the early ‘70s doing pop-synth stuff but they do styles all over the board. Every album is different, with long songs, and isn’t for everyone but I really like it.
