Need new music.

 Pages 1 2 NEXT
 

Hiya, looking for some new music. If you can give some suggestions, I'd be grateful.

Post whatever that you consider to be a hidden gem (song/album/artist) of sort. Genre doesn't matter. If it's something "different", fresh, or just plain great music, bring it on.

Thanks in advance. I have a hard time finding new music as all the people around me listen to music I already know. Your help is appreciated.

Finally! It's time to share my bizarre music!
-Chromeo FancyFootwork
-ELO Mr blue sky
-Ludo Love me dead
-Bionic COmmando rearmed OST Power plant
-Gorrilaz Feel Good inc
-Parov Stelar Catgroove

EDIT: also anything and everything by the beatles >.>






Check out more music by these people if you like the songs I've posted.

I would also like to join the ELO mr. blue sky motion. It's a great song.

Just to name a few.

I have really been into this band recently, All of their members come from different genres of music ranging from jazz to metal. It is a metal band though so you have been warned :P

Ayreon (A progressive-rock/metal kind of band. Individual singers represent different characters and their albums each have an overarching story. Many of their albums also connect to one another in some way)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_z4LTWvpOY

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsA7sowKO5E

Star One (A side-project of the man behind Ayreon. Star One makes songs based on famous sci-fi movies and television shows. Everything from Star Wars, to Dune, to 2001 and more)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVInYWs8ZU8

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRYt_YusG3E

Iron Savior (A power-metal band out of Germany. Their albums tell the story of the Iron Savior, a powerful space battle-station created by the ancient civilization of Atlantis. Not quite as well-told a story as Ayreon, but I think the music and imagery is great)

Sci-fi metal space-operas? Oh hell yes. Good metal never died, it just up and moved to Europe.

Anything by Hol Baumann.

Seriously, look him up, I'm not gonna link you, though forgotten ritual is good to look out for :)

I was going to recommend Parov Stelar but it's already been recommended. So...

Eh, who cares Parov Stelar definitely needs more love. At first his music sounded too strange to me but it grew on me, quickly.

If you're more into more traditional stuff, try Whitest Boy Alive. They've also grown on me.

Try yourself some Pink Floyd! A progressive rock band from the '60's into the '80's, their albums Dark Side of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall are some of the greatest albums ever. Just make sure you listen to them in full, start to finish. If your willing to get a little deeper into prog, you can also try The Alan Parsons Project; their albums I Robot and Pyramid are great pop/prog rock.

Feel like you need some electronic music? Always listen to Daft Punk. They are the only truly great band group... thing in that genre.

Feel like getting some metal on? Metallica, or any of the great power metal bands, are your destination.

Your pop side screaming to get out? Don't listen to modern pop artists, HELL NO! you gotta listen to a few songs from the New Wave artists of the '80's. No, not New Age, HELL NO! New Wave.

If you want to warp your mind, psycadelic artists like Jimi Hendrix or Jefferson Airplane are neat.

And if you want dance music, and/or are just feeling crazy, try disco. No. Seriously. The only reason people hate disco, and by extension the '70's and '80's, was the bad clothing. They had no fashion sense back then. Otherwise, it was friggin' awesome back then.

I've been getting into the agonist lately. Other than that I can't say I've really been getting into "new" music, there's so much awesome from the 90s that is new to me that it seems unnecessary to wade through modern crap to find the hidden gems. In a few years when it's all been discovered and recommended I'll get onto it!

Kenbo Slice:
Listen to this, I guarantee that you'll like it :D

Why would you make guarantees like that with boring music that sounds like the singer is a 13 year old with his balls in a in between two bricks?

I'm big on anything that has a beat or rhythm, specifically anything of the Industrial genre.

Rob Zombie is considered industrial by definition.

I would link Nine Inch Nails, but everyone seems to know who Trent Rezner is.

And now I realize my folly. Thank you. More good music to listen to.

Well, one under-the-radar artist that I'd mention in the same sentence as Stanley Kubrick and Jesus Christ is Vienna Teng, who I am officially sure 2 people on earth know about.

Have a random assortment.










I'll stop now.

Be prepared, I've got a lot here. Hopefully all my code worked properly, I dont want to have just wasted an hour typing and searching :P Here is a good assortment of some of my favorite songs from bands you've probably never heard of.

Falconer- Swedish Power/Folk metal. Really fast in some songs, about half are in Swedish, half are in English, and a voice you wouldn't expect in a metal band :)

English

Swedish

Alestorm- Scottish Pirate Folk Metal. Yep, you heard that right. Kind of fast, like Falconer, but it is all in good fun

Korpiklaani- Folk metal again, frequently using banjos, accordions, fiddles, flutes, etc. The singer has quite a growl to his voice, and it may seem a little heavy, but its one of the happiest bands I've ever heard.

Puscifer- The love child of Maynard James Keenan (you may know him from "Tool") and Milla Jovovich. Kind of a trance-ish alternative band, really interesting.

Nightwish Probably the most popular of the bands I am suggesting here, a lovely European power metal band, with female vocal leads, with a distinct opera sound to her voice. In some songs, they allow Marco to sing as well, and I must say, he has the exact beard I want to grow one day XD

For most of the bands existance, they had a vocalist named Tarja Turunen, the woman with the opera voice, giving the band a unique, mysterious feel. For their most recent album, due to conflict, Tarja was replaced by Annette Olzon, bringing a new flavor to the band. Annette also has a upper soprano range, but has more of a pop feel to her voice.

Tarja Turunen

Annette Olzon

Hell, lets throw some Marco into the mix :D

Marco

Lastly, a bit of Eluveitie, yet another folk metal band (I like folk metal, okay?) from Switzerland. They have two vocalists, one male, and one female. I only listen to the female most of the time, not personally a fan of growling/screamo.
Interesting side note, some of their songs are in an extinct language called Gaulish.

One more! the Dreadnoughts are a punk polka metal group from Vancouver, and they are just friggin awesome.


If you actually listened to all that, I love you.

You want some interesting music?

;P I dont even think thats thier best (see "we can make the world stop" above) anyway there is alot of good electronic out there, but not quite enough to point out induvidual artists

also I like this stuff

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5FKNViujeM&feature=relmfu

Well, I'm always happy to recommend this band that deserves a hell of alot more recognition that they currently get.


The band was started by a member of KsE so he can make more personal music. And, damn, does it show.

EDIT: I was reminded of Ludovico Einaudi by one of the other posts, and all I got to say is definitely check his stuff out.

Oh, there's also Starsailor, a band that is most known for making that song from the end credits of Metal Gear Solid 3. They had some pretty good songs,

Song: Discord.
By Super Ponybeat (Eurobeat)
Techno-y. (Not dub step).
Internet music artist.

Now before everyone fly's off the handle. Ya it's a MLP inspired song. No it is not some frilly piece of music spreading friendship. I'll let you to decide on if you like it or not. If you don't want to listen to it cause it's "Pony music", well you get to miss out. This is a thread about spreading new and rare songs to people to let them try it. So if your not here to share, what the hell are you here for.

Ayreon, Star One, Porcupine Tree, Diablo Swing Orchestra, Ambeon, Sky Architect, Yes, Shaolin Death Squad, After Forever, Stream of Passion, Rush, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater....

That's all I've got off the top of my head. They're all progressive bands (my favorite genre by far), with Ayreon being my favorite. Beautifully composed concept albums that touch on emotional levels.

Edit: This website has helped me find a ton of the music I listen to today. I hope you can get some use out of it... http://www.progarchives.com/

These are not my favorite songs ever, Just a couple I've been listening to as of late that I think more people should hear. Cheers!







PS - If your curious I mostly listen to Punk, Metal, Classic, Industrial, and Alternative Rock.

I'm glad someone else likes Arjen Lucassen! But you should have linked up some Human Equation and Electric Castle for Ayreon... =P My girlfriend just got me the Timeline compilation album, signed by Arjen no less, for Valentine's Day.

That's actually... kinda awesome!

I prefer the spacey kind of music. Used to be into the more sceamo/post hardcore thing, can't really listen to it anymore.

My favorite bands:
Modest Mouse
Radiohead
Orbs (this band is crazy good, but almost no one knows about it)
Mars Volta
Pixies

Nyaoku:
I kind of like the stuff by Gorillaz.
Feel Good inc.
DARE
Clint Eastwood
Just to name a few.

November Has Come and Rock the House are some of my favorite song by them
mostly because of the line, "It's awfully groovy seeing all the treasure and the booty."
Makes me laugh every time.
