ATM the moment I'm listening to a lot of the VERY early ELO stuff (from their first album - called "No Answer" in the states for a very Spinal Tap reason) and related Roy Wood acoustic stuff of around the same time. And thinking how appropriate it would be for SteamPunk. Contemporary (OK 70's) pop-rock played with acoustic instruments.
I've ended up doing single artist retrospectives recently.
First I listened to the Tragically Hip's albums in order (inspired by the passing of Gord Downey)...
Then recently I did Bowie's 70's studio albums in order.
Currently working through Fish's post Marillion studio albums.
Have also had side detours into Royal Blood (White Stripes-esque, when Jack White prioritised kick-ass tunes over performance art) and Greta Van Fleet (seventies boogies rock tribute by bunch of young musicians - possible soundtrack for my Forbidden Lands game if I run one).
