Admittedly most of their songs are in english but Neutral have some work that's in their native russian and their vocalist's voice is deep as fuck

slow but strong rhythms with melancholic, kind of Beirut-esque horn melodies

>>52195094

If you like imagery in lyrics, you should check out Black Moth Super Rainbow or Tobacco.

The imagery is usually in the very surrealistic/psychedelic realm. Although it is very simple and nonsensical.

Lush basslines
>>
>>52196362

I guess BMSR has pretty prevalent basslines as well.

like the dude's voice in splitting the atom by massive attack or like that vocal breakdown in the intro song to alt j's first album or even like most of the vocals in if i had a heart by fever ray fuckk, makes me diamonds

also im not really into flume and i wouldnt know how to describe this but basically anything similar to this song

dorky weeaboo shit, Thats good enough to recommend to someone who doesnt care about anime.

Like goreshit, Renzu, Airospace, ect.

Soundscape Music that isn't ambient.

This, for example
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_phS3ZpmAQ

At first it sounds like you are on the beach of a volcanic island on a helicopter, but as time goes on you start travelling through the island, until there's a moment in which the helicopter decides to enter the volcano, and you can see the lava, almost touching you, and you can feel how hot the temperature is, all of this is done with the music alone. Time goes on and the helicopter decides to get out of the volcano and you discover that the island is now suffocated by the volcanic gas.

>More like parkway drive
Every time i go looking for some metalcore i end up listening to shit with gay ass chorus.

i listen to all kind of music but i when i'm looking for it i'm looking for it.

And every time i ask for something similar people end up giving me death metal.

I'm looking for something with... energy.

You might want to check more of their stuff. Free Hand is my favorite album by them.
Also, Sing to God by Cardiacs takes the "multiple people singing differnt things" to the extreme, where there are some points in which there are ten, or more voices singing at the same time! Don't remember what song was it exactly, but try with Bellyeye, Manhoo, or Fiery Gun Hand.
