please share some of the best outsider music with me. I am aware of quite a few artists already, I just want to be aware of more.
musicians who don't fit into mainstream commercial music, either because they are untrained, eccentric, or seemingly not self aware of how they sound.
you could look this up easily
Farrah Abraham- My Teenage Dream Ended
One of the girls from 16 and pregnant released an electropop album and it sounds glorious.
R Stevie Moore is like a better far more fun Daniel Johnston.
You can check bandcamp for outsider releases.
Pic somewhat related, the kid who made Sponsored Athletics has tons of outsider material, albeit most of it isn't good.
Avant Garde music is composed music which goes beyond any conventions that exist in it's genre.
Experimental music technically means music which involved manipulation of sounds (musique concrete, tape music, etc.) but has come to mean any purposefully off kilter music.
Outsider music is music made by non-musicians.
IMO, outsider artists don't do what they do for the sake of art or commercial purposes, they simply create because they are compelled. I find them to be slightly more authentic weirdos, less pretentious.
