ITT: Name a genre you do not like or understand, and others recommend albums to get you into said genre.
really depends which type but I'd recommend
Tobacco - Fucked up Friends
Okay, but for reference I'm gonna post my three favorite albums.
Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
Slint - Mama Mia
I don't really understand vaporwave. I've pretty much only listened to Blank Banshee and Millennial Dream Corp.
Clipping - midcity and AnCo - STGSTV got me to listen to and appreciate noise more.
Neu! - s/t is amazing. It's best listened to as background music.
Those were only for country btw, not bluegrass. I meant to add in The Carter Family btw.
i agree with you its annoying
but this is literally what every person suggested to me when i ask about jazz and when people ask me about jazz its sort of a go to album if you're wanting to get into the genre
I need something to sing along to or i get bored af. Like i'm okay with shit like in Hotel Cali where there's the guitar solo and shit but music without lyrics gets annoying.
I can't be the only one who thinks this.
If you want entertaining and entry level jazz, try out
Sun Ra- Space is the Place
Charles Mingus- Black Saint and the Sinner Lady
John Coltrane- A Love Supreme
Miles Davis- My Favorite Things
If that is 2deep4u, try out Frank Zappa or other jazz rock artists.
I don't know why but I can't into punk rock. I can get into Folk Punk, Proto Punk, Noise-core, Crust Punk, Art Punk, and Post-Punk, but straight up Punk is one of the most boring things I've ever heard.
Also rec some latin music.
Already familiar with Patti Smith, who I've always seen as more of a blues singer songwriter than anything else, but I need more straight, no-filler punk.
Anything, but I suppose just mariachi style bras stuff like this.
MBV was not one of a kind, check out:
Lift to Experience - The Texas Jerusalem Crossroads
LSD and the Search for God - S/T
Candy Claws - Ceres and Calypso in the Deep Time
Ringo Deathstarr - Colour Trip
Slowdive - Souvlaki
Roku Music - Collider
If you want different try Big Youth. Specifically his albums Screaming Target and Dread Lock Dread.
Also try out
Desmond Dekker- Isrealites
Keith Hudson and Family Man- Pick a Dub
Augustus Pablo- Meets the Rockers Uptown
Check out Dancehall as well.
All I mean by entry-level is "It's the music that most-embodies the genre."
Classical entry-level is Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven. Still, lots of people don't appreciate Bach at first due to the complexities inherent, or Mozart for the comparative simplicity, or Beethoven for the grandiosity. Nonetheless, their popularity gives them their "level."
Not the guy you're replying to but I believe that certain albums within a genre can be considered entry-level, often you'll find they share characteristics of other genres, so it feels more comfortable and familiar to listeners new to the genre. But most importantly, in genres that employ things that might offend a new listeners ear (atonality, harshness, chaos, etc.) you'll find entry level albums that tone these genre defining characteristics back, so they ease the listener into the genre.
It's been posted before but there are only a couple of ways to get into noise,
1. Listen to black metal and keep getting kvlter and more low fi until it's basically atmospheric noise
2. Listen to industrial until such time as you feel that you need to advance into noise/power electronics
Cobalt and Ruins of Beverast
I like River City Extension but that may not be what you're looking for.
Try the ones I posted above. Mainly Ruins of Beverast though, as their vocals are less prominent than with Cobalt. Black metal sometimes has growling vocals though. There is instrumental black metal too I'm pretty sure, as odd as it sounds.
The Flashbulb - Undiscovered Colors
edIT - Ants (whole album its on is bretty guud)
Ventian Snares - Rossz Csillag Alatt Születtet
Other options from those not listed. IMO Squarepusher and Aphex Twin are a little too soft sometimes (not nearly enough glitch or just out of place in the IDM world).
nyetscape - better angles of our nature
chuck person's eccojams vol 1
猫 シ corp - hiraeth
g h o s t i n g - virtual saxophone transmissions
断片化された友人 - fragmented memories (this one is a big collective of vaporwave artists, u can find it on dream catalogue's bandcamp thing)
burrrn - blaze down his way like the space show
muscle snog - mind shop
skip skip ben ben - sacrifice mountain hills
brief candles - fractured days
the sunshine factory - sugar
soundpool - dichotomies & dreamland
drop nineteens - delaware
ninth paradise - ninth paradise
the yours - the way we were (a little more structured)
It's a hot meme, friend! It's pretty new too, you'd probably like it!
>All I mean by entry-level is "It's the music that most-embodies the genre."
that's an interesting way to put it. you should say that, i mean, just as a deterrent from elitism propagation.
i also like this.
so in opposition to entry level music most-embodying a genre, it's music most characteristically similar to that of associated genres?
they're both good thoughts, but they remain in your heads so long as the catch all term entry level is used, which sucks.
Goreshit- My Love Feels All Wrong
Go-Qualia- Soine Kawaiine Tanzmuzik
If you need help, consider you have to be doing neckbeard activites such as playing vidya or arguing on 4chan to fully immerse yourself in this genre.
>Midwestern Emo Revival
The late 00's were the peak for this genre so start there.
Castevet - Summer Fences
Hightide Hotel - Porch Luck
I have no idea what this means lmao
Some pop-screamo stuff, very good to get going in the genre:
William Bonney - Good Vibes
Merchant Ships - Shipsography
Orchid - Chaos is Me
I wrote haikus about cannibalism in your yearbook - Discography
Jeromes Dream - Seeing Means More than Safety
drum and bass
romantic era music.
string quartets are way too difficult to understand, piano sonatas from hindersmith (he might be contemporary though?) are super fucking ugly, everything i've heard by brahms is pretty uninteresting. beethoven piano sonatas are only okay, not really that great. all of the non etudes chopin stuff i have is like ultra sappy reverb piano. what's some good beginner material for that?
If you want more lyrical, straightforward stuffy, try Fleet Foxes and the Avett Brothers
If you like experimentation, try the Decemberists, Shakey Graves, and Devendra Banhart
If you like crazy instrumentation, try Sufjan Stevens and Beirut

I'm not looking for anything specific, it's just that most music I try out that gets labeled jungle isn't good to me.
This is the only jungle release I've found that I like, although I see people say that this isn't really jungle a lot.
Terrible genre as far as descriptions of similarities between bands.
At the Drive-In - Acrobatic Tenement/Relationship of Command
Fugazi - Repeater
NoMeansNo - Wrong
(Loosely associated around post-hardcore)
Death From Above 1979 - Romantic Rights
Brand New - The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me
I hear you. Generally not a huge Jungle fan so I don't know what is labeled 'jungle' and which just feature a jungle beat.
I can tell you that if you are into the sound, try a few IDM artists out if you haven't already.
'µ-Ziq – Brace Yourself Jason' is a pretty good example.
Another IDM song that uses more of the original jungle influence.
Dawn Penn & Bounty Killer – You Don’t Love Me (No No No)
I've got ADD pretty bad (I'm doing a paper as we speak) and I absolutely love Tortoise, Stereolab, Talk Talk, Godspeed, etc. I'm a musician too, so maybe that helps me appreciate the abstracted, episodic song structures and focus on texture, but I don't have to get TOO cerebral to dig it. Just take your time with the stuff OP. But how about Tortoise's Standards. It's more direct than some of their previous stuff.
Maybe it's ambient techno, but it is definitely not strictly ambient music. IDM is a loose umbrella term, so while BOC doesn't draw from D'n'B quite like the RDJA does, they're both IDM.
It's more in the vein of gothic / alternative country though.
Energy - Operation Ivy
Keasbey Nights - Catch 22
Losing Streak - Less Than Jake
Turn the Radio Off - Reel Big Fish
I'm assuming you meant third wave.
American football -s/t, Hightide Hotel - Nothing Was Missing..., Snowing - Fuck Your Emotional Bullshit, Dads - American Radass.That's enough to get you started stop by an emo thread if you want more later.
Well I would not qualify sad Modest Mouse as emo though, it could be tricky to find something in this gap.
I am actually not sure if emo is even for you, what you are describing kinda reminds me of Minus the bear, I could be totally wrong though.
Sorry bro, I am kinda fucked right now and can not concentrate on searching for this particular sound.
Still I think you are right, I might know what you are getting at and I like your style anon.
Emo music was really ever only good in the late 80s and early 90s...generally referred to as slowcore
in my opinion, best emo album ever is Red House Painters - "Down Colorful Hill"
If one wants to be technical, emo started out in the 80s as punk or indie music with 'emotional' lyrics. it wasnt necessarily a genre...hence take a look a Rites of Spring
Regardless, by todays starndard, emo is a shitty shitty genre of bands like brand new and such unfortunately
In my opinion, emo is truly the slowcore movement...which is why I recommended red house painters
Not that guy, but Faust s/t is overrated. And even if you disagree with that, Faust IV is much more accessible (s/t was deliberately created to be inaccessible), which is the point of this thread. Faust IV is a much better starting point for them.
That said, for Krautrock, Tago Mago is my favorite album, but it isn't exactly the easiest album to get into either (many new listeners skip the second half). I would suggest Yeti, Electronic Meditation, or maybe even Hosianna Mantra.
slowcore is slowcore
emo is shit like sunny day real estate, empire! empire!, and The World is A Beautiful Place
Melodic punk with emotional lyrics, traditional rock set up, and a horns section
well, that's to me anyway
Slowcore is generally music under 60 RPM with acoustic guitars, piano, repetitive light drumming, and little to no bass
The Antler's Cold War EP, Red House Painter's early 90s stuff
its been years since I have listened to a Faust record, but Faust s/t was always my favorite by them from what I remember
However, I have not explored Krautrock enough to have a good opinion. Though hosianna Mantra is phenomenal! some of the Klaus Schulze was pretty good as well! And yea Tago Mago is quite good as well!
I had thought it was stupid recently until I found Immedia's Virtual Recordings of Imagined Spaces which I thought was great.
I completely agree with everything you have said! Our only difference is the definition of the term 'emo'...I consider slowcore to be the TRUE emo, but mainstream definition doesnt technically go by that unfortunately. I mean can one get more 'emotional' than down colorful hill (and not in a cheesy gay way like brand new and the other high school girl music lol)
see though, even "emo" kids don't really call their music emo. It's scene, and a lot of bands in the "scene" have actively tried to get out of it. Emo is a bad term nowadays, so bands actively eschew it.
I for one am happy about emo revival. I'm trying to start up an emo revival band in my state to get the music wave coming here, but all my attempts have failed.
trve kvlt black metal
can't stand anything in this genre besides blackgaze and "hipster" stuff
no obscure bands pls
try some shoegaze stuff first like grouper, windy & carl or flying saucer attack
also natural snow builings is a must-listen
I need help getting into post punk. I like noisy guitars and lo-fi recordings.
Also, tech-death that's not Cryptopsy, Gorguts, Demilich (all of which I like), or Death. (which I don't like)
Herbie Hancock is pretty fun and accessible. Start with Head Hunters.
What type of music do you normally listen to?
Listen to Pathetique by Fushitsusha. The last track might be 2deep4u though. Give it time. It'll grow on you.
Darkthrone - Transylvanian Hunger
It has amazing atmosphere, and it has about as much tremolo riffs as you might expect from a blackgaze album.
If you're freaking about because of the recording quality, go listen to some Weakling - Dead as Dreams or maybe Darkthrone - A Blaze in The Northern Sky
>I need help getting into post punk. I like noisy guitars and lo-fi recordings.
chrome, DNA (try no wave in general), beat happening (lo-fi as fuck)
clouddead, cannibal ox, a tribe called quest
>Darkthrone - Transylvanian Hunger
>Darkthrone - A Blaze in The Northern Sky
I appreciate your help mate but c'mon this is too obvious and was already recommended in this thread.
>If you're freaking about because of the recording quality
no, i would really like to listen to some raw stuff
