Music Recommendations Thread

Recommended Posts

I highly recommend The Decemberists' Hazards of Love. It's a really good folk-y rock-y kinda (I'm bad with genres) album that was initially meant to be a musical but ultimately was just an album. This is one of the songs off of the albums:

 

 

It also features Shara Worden, who also provided a bunch of backing vocals for Sufjan Stevens' Illinois and Age of Adz and does My Brightest Diamond. Speaking of My Brightest Diamond, this is off her first album, Bring Me The Workhorse, which I find even more difficult to describe in terms of genre:

PS: Just take a moment to appreciate the epic mutton chops on the Decemberists' lead singer.

You like MF DOOM, so I assume you've already heard of Madvillain, so I'd recomend you listening to Daedelus - Exquisite Corpse, has MF DOOM and a couple of other rappers on it.

 

You like J Dilla, Nujabes, and DJ Shadow, so you will like Flying Lotus(not really rap, but experimental hiphop).

 

Listen to Death Grips if you haven't already, and if you want to get even deeper into experimental hiphop/rap, listen to clipping. and B L A C K I E.

I like FlyLo's music, got his albums, he does some nice stuff, but I'm not an avid listener, same with Death Grips, Guillotine and No Love are songs I like. I'll check out your suggestions though, thanks!

I do have to warn you that The Welcome Wagon is a Christian band. I put it here anyway because I think they're an interesting band, and they're produced by/ feature Sufjan Stevens (have I mentioned I really like Sufjan Stevens' work? :P)

Got some new shiz for ya's.

 

So, I was playing GTA V and tuned in to this station called WorldWide FM after I listened to one of the songs and it had this nu jazz vibe going on...I was like, okay, let's give this a shot.

 

(who incidentally is collab'ing with Ariana Grande on her upcoming album)

 

The track in GTA is

I dig it. A lot.

 

Completely switching gears (to tha rawk \m/), allow me to present to you...

They're kinda all over the place (this is not very representative of their prior work, but then again, there isn't really a specific representative song). Creature Songs EP is definitely heavier, though.

 

Speaking of heavy, ever heard of

Pretty decent kind of punk/grunge band outta the UK (like Wolf Alice above, on the UK part). I'm pretty convinced at this point, given that Wolf Alice and Darlia get at least limited airplay on Radio 1, that while rock has more or less forgotten how to breathe here in the US it's alive and well over in Merrie Olde Englande.
from Darlia.

 

Meanwhile...one of my "totally not edgy" recommends: if you're into '80s synth power pop,

(you might know her, if you're a chart nerd, from that ICONAPOP song as well as Iggy Azalea's hit single "Fancy") is worth a listen. She's already a bit of a fixture in the indiepop scene, sort of reminds me of Lorde if Lorde exhibited any signs of passion at all.

 

EDIT: Teafriends will probably recognize a lot of this shiz if they listen to Radio 1 a lot. That's...not an accident. I'm listening to Radio 1 a lot. Because 2014 is even more of a clock-out year stateside than 2013 was.

I'm so loving the song 'Blood Brothers' by Iron Maiden at the moment.

 

You could say it's a very special song to me. biggrin.png

 

Had the best moment of my life... well, of the year, so far, while listening to that.

 

Did you get laid while listening to it? huh.png

Haha, I wish.

 

But you're warm.

 

 

So guys, trash metal. Let's talk 80s.

 

Best trash metal album from the 80s? Mine is, and will probably be for a long time, Master of Puppets by Metallica.

 

I so love the songs of Metallica.

Love the vibe of that track, though. It's good stuff. I'm not normally a big fan of EDM since it usually has no real feeling or personality to it but Cashmere Cat and Caribou are some recently-added exceptions.

I recommend for any indie fan Hot Hot Heat's first album, Make Up the Breakdown. It's one of the first albums I ever bought.
