Is there anything else quite like Exuma?

Also more good free folk in the style of Jackie-O Motherfucker would be appreciated

Not normal folk
>>
>>61566909
I can not quite recommend anything quite like it, tho i did not like his albums that much I have to admit, it really is different and it really is special
>>
>>61566936
to me it is not that different, it might not be Bob Dylan but i would still put it under normal category personally

this chart is great if you're interested in getting into any of the styles/genres mentioned on it, or if you're into stuff like animal collective's folk stuff and joanna newsom and whatnot you'll probably love quite a few of the artists in the new weird america section
>>
>>61566835
I need some good Asian folk besides the popular choices
Any recs?
>>
>>61567032
Last section is objectively the best
>>61567054
Itsusu Akai No Fusen - New Sky Part 1
I love their use of field recordings, real comfy stuff
>>
>>61567032
saved
>>
>>61567054
>besides the popular choices

>>
>>61567079

freak folk is my fav genre i love it

>>61567054
meme (yes they're really called meme) - chitotetochi

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VablHfbl5Cs
i dunno how popular it is but personally i've never heard of it outside of that one time so i guess not very
>>
>>61567032
Someone rec me one thing from this list.
>>
>>61567135
Of course I've heard Meme, they're pretty popular here
Thanks, though!

>>61567184

>>61567196

>>
>>61567184
Comus- First utterance
One of the best freak folk albums that there are imo
>>
>>61566835
What is your favorite sub-genre of folk everybody
Mine is indie folk and lo-fi folk, i know people will not like me with that kind of opinion but still people do not need to like me and i just like it and i think it is the best but what do you all people think

Big BLood - Dark COuntry Magic is pretty sweet. It's free as well
>>
>>61567211
>what are you into currently anon

My two favorite folk albums are Grateful Dead's American Beauty and Anco's Sung Tongs but I'm really open to anything.

>>61567239
Thanks, I have this but haven't listened yet.
>>
>>61567474
big blood is the best
big blood & bleedin hearts is better than that 1 though
>>
>>61567482
like that other anon said, first utterance is a must
also based off those picks, you'd probably like mother twilight by faun fables

>>61567539
best big blood album is already gone tbphwy
pretty much all of them are amazing tho, my fav band
>>
>>61567184
Jackie-O Motherfucker - Flags of the Sacred Harp

Great, jammy and expansive folk with beautiful timbres
>>61567342
Try:
Waxahatchee - American Weekend
Ramon Speed - Unread #119
>>
>>61567539
Only starting listening to them pretty recently. I'l give that one a listen.
>>
requesting progressive folk or freakfolk similar to anything pic related
>>
anyone have a psych folk one?
>>
>>61567733
>tasseomancy
i love you
let's get married

no but seriously based on that and ys you'd probably like larkin grimm, particularly 'the last tree' by her
>>
>>61567733
>Joanna Newsom
Orion Rigel Dommisse
>>
>>61567733
Big Blood album mentioned above
Exuma-Ehuma
Rural Alberta Advantage- Hometowns
Swan Lake-Beast Moans

The last two might be a bit of a stretch but I think we have similarish tastes
>>

Does anyone have something like this, if you have not listened to it I highly recommend itbut pretty much what it is is a a combination of comedy with feels on a lo-fi indie folk punk folk anti folk album
>>
>>61566835
I was named after Elliott Smith

Been a big fan of Anna Ternheim (swedish guitar folk) for a long time; does anyone have any recs based on that? I'd really appreciate it.

An example, and probably my favorite song by her: Off the Road

>>
>>61567844
was going to put what i want from you is sweet but couldn't come up with 3 more that would fill up the row
>>61567821
i'll look into it
>>61567848
i think i tried big blood once before but I dont remember any of their albums
>>
>>61566909
...anyone? Please
>>
>>61568596
there's some good free folk on that chart i posted a bit up the thread
as for "Is there anything else quite like Exuma", the reason why nobody offered anything is because no, there isn't
>>
>>61568666
Thanks, I've only listened to Six Organs of Admittance and Sun City Girls from there so I'll be sure to check the rest out. As for Exuma that kind of sucks, he's one of my favorites.
>>
Question: is Chelsea Wolfe considered folk or metal?
>or folkmetal desu senpai
>>
>>61568753
yeah i mean every once in a while you get a musician who's just so unique and inimitable that nothing else will ever sound like it and as far as i know exuma was one of those
the only thing i can think to offer you is geoffrey oryema, he's kinda similar in terms of the influence from traditional african music etc but it is a lot more subdued and kinda lacking the experimentation and eccentricity that made exuma what he was
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0u5yYEEluA

>>61569044
depends which album you're listening to tbqh
>>
>>61568216
Pretty much i am asking for AJJ just more indie folk
>>

This album is a must-have for any fans of folk music. Released in 1965, I Ain't Marching Anymore is a real masterwork of mid-century folk.

Pete Seeger's Live at Bowdoin College, 1960, is another must-have.
>>
Is John Fahey considered folk?
>>
>>61569236
>play i ain't marching anymore
>it ain't me starts playing
>>
>>61569044
She is most definitely not metal but now to as in which genre i would put her in: Ethereal Wave, Gothic Rock, Darkwave, Dark Folk, Singer/songwriter
She can be put into the metal category but imo she is not metal tho she has a metal vibe to her music
>>
>>61569279
yes
>>
>>61569126
Ha I actuslly just found Oryema early today! Thanks for your help though, I've been looking through the stuff on the chart and itz's pretty cool so far
>>
>>61569236
agree, and also its extremely fucking sad
