The lights are on
You like Godspeed You Black Emperor, but we prefer Mozart. It doesn't matter because here we all dance to the same tune. Let's all hang out and we can make beautiful music together.
@Rapheal, I like him better than most of the crew that he's with.
Artist: Florence & the Machine
Genre: They say pop, but I have set genre for them
Genre: Hard Rock
Artist: Scarface (solo)
Era: 90s, with Geto Boys 80s
Three words: Heroic folk metal.
Artists: Equilibrium, Finntroll, Ensiferum, Alestorm, Tyr.
Era: Some of the older ones go back to the nineties when they were the pioneers of the genre, but most came out after 2000.
It's huge in Europe, but if you look up a video on Youtube, don't be one of those guys that tries to make some sort of Skyrim joke.
Genre: Smooth Jazz
I'm a gamer; a lover of music!
Band: The Silent Comedy
Time: Start performing in 2006, first studio album in 2010
Band: Black Country Communion
Genre: Sort of a Hard Rock Blues Jazz Combo
Time: A bunch of old rockers who got together in 2011
Black Country Communion are really good, I just started listening to them lately, I heard of them from watching That Metal Show. Another band I learned of from that show thats really good people should check out is Kill Devil Hill.
I heard aabout them on tms too! small world huh?
Listening to Kill Devil Hill for the first time... Gotta say this is one of the best bands i've heard in a long time!
Band : Comus
Genre : acid folk, progressive rock
Timeline : 1969-1972, 1974, 2008-present
Unlike anything you've ever listened to they're amazing
The first utterance album is on YouTube, I suggest listening with headphones on the last minute is insane
Band: Slightly Stoopid
Genre: Reggae, Ska, Rock (it really depends on what album you listen to)
Check out Closer to the Sun (the song and if you like it the album) and 2am.
Oh, unless you hate weed, there is a lot of weed culture in their music.
Artisit: Nujabes (he's a producer)
Check out Feather, Blessin' it, Highs 2 Lows, Aruaruian Dance, Reflection Eternal, or Luv(sic). All of his albums can be found on Youtube, if you like him listen to Metaphorical Music
As far as Hip-hop goes this guy is the best, and I don't really like hip-hop.
That said, here is some more rappers
His only album is 3030, its about the year 3030 and has plenty of nerd references. Also listen to del the funky homosapien's song protoculture if you like video games.
Artist: A.S.M (A State of Mind)
A bunch of french rappers (in english), its good, check out Platypus Funk.
Artist: Little Women
Genre: rock (with reggae influences)
You're gonna have a hard time finding this on Youtube, you can get some bootlegged live recordings though that are of decent quality. I recommend DKs Starry or something along those lines.
Artist: G. Love
Genre: mellow hip hop
He raps (kinda, not gangster rap by any means) over a lot of bluesy guitar tracks, check out his album Lemonade.
Genre: Reggae (and some funk)
If you like reggae, these guys are great. They are a little overly hippy-esque, but the grooves are awesome.
Artist: Flogging Molly
A more Irish and less punk version of the Dropkick Murphy's, I think they are way better.
